hello, i have been trying to get into flashpoints ever since i was able to when i made it to the fleet. yet im now level 42 almost 43, ive seen just 2 flashpoints, and i am in this soo called LFG option all the time, and i even look for the flashpoints on the planet im lvling on, and still nothing.


its getting really stupid to sit here day in and day out, looking to do flashpoints, when frankly they just dont happen


WTB dungeon finder of some sort, cause this is getting rediculous

Agreed. I ran Esseles at 10 and never got into any others. Was never at the Fleet long enough to find a group while leveling. Why wait around when I can just quest? I would've done them all if I could just queue up for one while I was leveling. Now, at 50, I've been spending a lot of time at the Fleet, tagged for LFG, and still couldn't find any groups.

I just don't understand, here in 2012, when every other game I can think of has this sort of system, why BIO decided to not include it. For community? I don't buy that. Sitting around spamming chat is not community. If I want community, I'll join a guild, or read the server forums, oh wait... I just want to play. Hopefully Bio will follow Trion's example and add it post haste.

I support the requets for a LFG feature.

Learn to socialise.... i take time 2 hours a day to find groups... its good cos i removed countless of idiots on ignore already...

i have a friends list of 25 people who constantly ask me for groups...

It sucks to be anti social and incapable of looking for friends in a ROLE PLAYING game.

you have no clue do you. i have already given up trying to do the flashpoints, cause there is no point to them untill your 50. so ill just keep questing and ignoring the flashpoints, cause i refuse to sit in fleet for a day just to do 1 flashpoint

I understand the desire for a LFG system. I don't want to patronize anyone, but back when I played WoW, I wanted one, too; it does seem like a great idea.

If you can accept a game where the game world itself no longer matters, where you can basically sit in your capital city/fleet/whatever and queue for everything, it's perfect. If you want a game where the game world itself can still come into play, where you get to know the people you play with (and against), and where a server can actually *have* a narrative history, it isn't.

Not being able to find groups sucks. While a faction-wide LFG channel would be annoying to a lot of people (and abused by gold spammers), I still think it would be superior to having a queue system for everything. It's a little more understandable for PvP battlegrounds where the minimum group size is 8.

If the actual problem was that you were on a server where there simply weren't enough people playing the same hours you do, the solution *might* be to find a different server. Regardless, not being able to find groups for everything (though there are FPs, like Colicoids, that people actively seem to avoid) is a problem; I just don't think that a queue system is the solution.

Why is it more understandable for PVP to have simple (albeit, non-cross-server) queuing system, but not for PVE content? Just because of you need more people? According to this logic, a queuing system for 16-men operations should be added, but not for anything below that. Does it make any sense?

Most people just want to play the game, whenever they have free time. As it is right now, you have to arrange for your game sessions to happen during your servers peak time to try to maximize your chances of doing more than dailies or Warzones.

All in the name of fake virtual communities that most people don't care.

I don't have 2 hours a day to sit around looking for a group. I'm married with kids and already have a full time job and other interests that I devote time too.


2 hours LFG so I can then start to play? No thank you.
