As things are now, i can either stand around in fleet and spam general chat, or go out and quest (with exception of ilum, as some people look for groups there as well, but largely pointless try to spam chat in, say, Belsavis, for a Battle for Ilum FP while doing dailies), i can't do both.
THIS, NO autogrouping, no queue, no cross server.

Just place players in a list of people that want to do that specific flashpoint

If you recall the TBC version of Blizzard's LFD system, that is very similar. You put yourself on a list for whatever dungeon/raid you want to run, select a role and get automatically placed in a LFG chat channel. From there you can more easily find people for your group, find a group or make a new group.

That would be perfect, imo. Blizzard took it one step too far with the WotLK version that is now ruining WoW.

Server only please, I'd rather they delete flashpoints then implement a cross server LFG system.

EDIT if they have to add one please copy from DDO. No insta port and let the leader build the group.

I want to play the game, not sit at the fleet waiting/spamming for a group. Let me do other things while waiting for the dungeon queue. You can meet players using this tool and make premades in the future if you enjoyed playing together. This works fine if it's server only.

It is by far my #1 wish for this game and would get me to subscribe.

why do people feel the need to insult the people who hold a different viewpoint?

the community destroying elements of the wow lfd tool were mainly cross server queueing, however, i can see the argument that auto porting might be community destructive.

The current LFG tool isn't being used. I'd be happy with it if people used it. They don't, and thus, it is almost worthless. I continue to queue in it in some hopes that people will realize it's there, but they don't.

This isn't the fault of 1 million players. Its because the system is subdued and there's no real explanation of its features in-game.

I would support a server only lfd queueing system

I would also support a DDO style communications board.

I would support a GLFG channel, although this isn't optimal.

But at the very least, help players realize the features of the current LFG board.

I want the AION LFG tool.
Just a little mechanic where you can see who seeks or wants what level, gear and instance based but you have to get your lazy char to the spot yourself. (no auto-porting)
Server based only.
