I agree completely, i'm lucky if i can find 1 group a day for any HM - and there's plenty of 50's around now. I don't think any lfg system should be cross-realm, that just leads to people ninja'ing gear. Hell, don't even make it port you into the instance, just find a group. They already have a lfg system in place for PVP, how hard could it be to do it for FP's?

I was one of the nay-sayers for a LFG function but now that I have played the game I change my mind. Finding a group for whatever reason is agonizing. I'd rather have a queue do if for me than spam fleet general for 20 minutes before I give up.

I support of this as well. But it needs to start off with your own server first. Then if needed, they can expand the service for other realms, but only a few more at each patch.

Getting a group has little to do with being social and more about being really patient. The true socializing happens once you're inside the flashpoint doing stuff and having a good time. While you wait its just small talk to get the time running (for most parts).

It sucks to be anti social and incapable of looking for friends in a ROLE PLAYING game.
It's not about socialising it's about have a life and work and other obligations, you may or may not have these things but others do and 2 hrs searching for a group is both a waste of time and shouldn't be even an option.

The current LFG tools available is both weak and a lazy design, there needs to be headings, for instance, clicking on Hammer station (just and example), then a list of players who are currently looking for that FP.

Not a list of people who are looking for a group where you have to send them a tell asking if there looking for the one you are because the comment isn't filled in.

Yes please!
Why not copy WoW? Whats wrong with it? Do so!
They got it right.
It's rly hard to enjoy flashpoints because of how har it is to find 3 other ppl includng propper tank and healer.
Not mentioniong that it's impossible to farm them for gear etc...

Most ppl willing to do flashpoints hang arround enterance on Fleet, and what about hundreds of players leveling in the meanwhile on other planets?
And doh, Im lvl27 and I only just started Nar Shaddar, where most players are on Tatooine on this level...

A speparate LFG channel on the chat would be usefull as well, you wanna find more, you join that chat.

And you need to do sth allowing ppl to summon ther party members to the enterance, yes, just like a summoning stone in WoW.
And again, they got it right, why not change it a bit and give it to us, needy players?
I'd like to grind a flashpoint to get all the gear I can

I totally agree, MMO's are meant to be played with other players. Certain servers still dont have a big population and most time im alone or with 2 peers on a planet. To hang around fleet to do Flashpoint is ridiculous and also a waist of time. I really think that a Flashpoint finding tool (alright im going to refer to WOW here but Blizzzard did do it right for this) and ops finding tool would greatly enhance the community play on SWTOR.


I still love the game!!

I just wrote a wall of text pointing out how LFG isn't a good tool, and how much more beneficial it is to actually put grps together. But it doesn't matter. Most of you wanting a LFG tool are tools, that's why you cant find grps.

I too would love a LFG. I don't have 2 hours to spend trolling for a group like one of the other posters does, because after 2 hours of LFG on the fleet, I wouldn't have any time left to play.

I don't mind if it's server specific, so long as I can be off the fleet and find a group for a flashpoint or group quests I'd be happy! Other than that, I'm enjoying myself immensely
