Dungeon Finder Needed Badly.

When you can just click a button and enter a dungeon queue, you no longer need to socialize with your server.

This means the server slowly degrades into a bunch of people waiting in a queue, never joining guilds, never creating a proper community.

Guilds are the foundation of an MMO. Any function that makes success possible without a guild degrades the community.

The community grows when you have no choice but to socialize with people to get into raids/dungeons.

Copy paste from my own post in another thread:

Quote:
The only major problem that exists currently is that the LFG Tool that is, in fact, present in SWTOR needs to be made more obvious. What LFG Tool, are you asking? I'm talking about the LFG functions in the Social Window. Here is how to properly use them:

Step 1) Open the Social Window.
Step 2) Click the box that flags you as LFG and set a note saying why you're LFG.
Step 3) Search for 'LFG' in the box at the top. This will present a list of everyone who is flagged as LFG, no matter where they are - in fleet, on a planet, or anywhere else.
Step 4) Whisper any who seem suitable as groupmates and ask them if they would like to group. If they say yes, invite them. Because you've done step 2, you may even receive whispers asking you if you want to group with them. Reply as you see fit.
Step 5) Periodically repeat steps 3 and 4 until your group is complete.

Note that this entire process can be done from anywhere, whilst doing anything, as long as you're not already in a group doing something else.

Wow, I didn't know that there were only four MMOs made since 2004. Neat!

I have four republic chars on a standard populated server. And four empire chars on a light pop server. None are in guild and have never waited for more than twenty mintues to get a flashpoint going. Ps you can still quest while spamming general chat to look for group. You dont have to be standing still. I played wow and rift and at times waited an hour just to find a healer or tank. Having a lfg tool doesn't help this.

3. All it'll prove is Bioware caters to the lowest common denominator in the MMO hierarchy, the whining casual, and that won't do them any good.
I hope you know, but casuals make up majority of every MMO fanbase. Hard core players are just the most vocal.

Notice I said Whining Casuals, not Casuals. I have no issue with people that can only play small amounts per day, I have a problem with people who can only play small amounts of time per day and cry, *****, moan and groan that something takes more then their alotted 7 minutes per day to do until it gets nerfed. Look at WoW and what the Whining Casuals did to it. Even the non-Whining Casuals don't like what has become of it.

I can't think of any others that weren't failures.

DCUO, there are more too. I think it would be easier to name games that don't have a lfg tool.

It's a game man, sometimes people just want to play. Besides here's a scenario:

General: Need Tank for X
Me: I'll go

What are we friends now? Have we forged a bond? lol no.
