Too difficult to find Pugs for Flashpoints.

It's really hard to find PUGs(pick up groups) for Flashpoints, especially the ones at the higher level.

Havent been able to find anyone to run the last few Flashpoints on my server.
Server is amongst the most busy servers as well.

Hopefully, there will be:

1. Global LFG channel as no one i know sets their LFG flag.
2. Auto-grouping.

It would be a real shame if all that nice content is only seen by the 1%

Yes, I'm on a high pop server and spending time on the Fleet LFG.

There is always a group for BT/Hammer station but those arent the ones I want to do.

There is almost no group forming for the high level flashpoints, that's the problem.

If there is a LFG Global channel, it would help out a ton as people can be questing and able to see the LFG.
They dont have to be hanging around on the Fleet, waiting for a group to form.

Dont make the same mistake as WoW, where everyone just forms up in Orgrimmar/Stormwind.

try LFM instead of LFG and you'll find a group in no time. Take some initiative

I'm a 50 bh tank. I've been 50 for over a week now. Every time i get on i'm lfg. Outa the 7 days or so of being lfg 3 - 4 hours per day, i've found 1 grp. And that was after 2 hours of being lfg.

Such engaging gameplay!

If you cant find a group, make a group.

It also seems to be highly dependent on the time you are looking. On my server (Krayt Dragon - imp side) ive noticed alot of people LFG around 9 pmEST. Too much longer before this and the lfg/lfm is more or less dead. People are either grinding their dailies or doing other content before mid-late evening.

Just have some patience, maybe roll a new class that you have been interested in, as more folks reach the 50s the trouble finding a group for those fps will fade away.

1) CREATE a group yourself

OR

2) Get some friends/a guild.

Ok first, you do realize that this game hasn't even been out a month?
As is even the high pop server have a relatively low population of toons at high/max lvl.
This will change over time as more people reach the cap.

Next, you really can't complain too much about pugging....it's not as if its ever had a stellar reputation for anything, aside from a bit of novelty.
If you you've tried everything and can't seem to pug a group, why not join a guild with a decent number of high lvl players in it.
If you're not willing to do that, then you need to either be patient and let the game mature, or suck it up, since in partially you're own fault.
