Maybe in the end-game it will be easier, but looking for more for ages hanging on Fleet seems like a good idea for a hardcore nerd.
Im casual, I like casual, if that makes me a tool, let it be, I guess most of players are tools then.
I want to get the most out of this game, and not beeing able to enjoy its full content...well just guess. And I expect Bioware to make it easier for me to enjoy what they prepared for me in full.
I spent some time on Fleet in between changing questing planets, I guess most players does so too, so its not a big window of oportunity, and not a lot of time to hang near enterances there.
I will never troll arround for hours just to find a group, I prefer to go forward with questing instead, and so does most ppl. And it is a pain to find a group for a flashpoint.

So I remind myself how easy and quick it was in WoW to find more, one click, few minutes and wham! your inside with all the ppl you need.
Ok, sometimes you were teamed up with total loosers, but thats why Im a tank myself, to save myself some trouble.
I remember that beeing tank or a healer in WoW was really beneficial thanks to LFG tool, there were much fewer tanks/heals and you didn't have to que for god knows how long, and it would be cool, to get that benefit in here as well.
If you wanna stuff in more role-playing-more-socialising-way, ok, but the mojority would like to do it in a one-click-away-from-action way.

I agree 100%. Why would I want to waste time spamming general chat with LFG msgs and waiting for a response when I have limited time to play? The WoW system of Dungeon Finder where u ask for the area you want, then go about doing whatever you like, are transported to the location of the instance, and returned to your original position is so much better than anything else I've ever experienced, I was surprised and appauled to realise SWTOR has no such system. Even f2p (free to play) games like Forsaken World have a similar system. And SWTOR has none? Absolutely shocked!

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
for the interum easiest way to find a group (at least on my server) is roll emp. 2/3's of my friends list has left the game or rolled emp or have had long term RL issues(can't tell which) if that trend is steady across the player base then yea just roll emp.
The only thing that should impact a players success/failure in pvpplayervsplayeris his/her skill not what they are wearing. Otherwise call it GvG gear vs gear, crunch the #'s in a calc, face-roll your keyboard, and go watch TV.polls by paulolesonhttp://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=164486pollhttp://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=164530

Try MAKING a group, instead of just LOOKING for one.

I always made a group for everything. Now I just have a big list of people (I have 47 non-guildies on my friends list) that I pull from to make groups.

I jumped on my heals alt to test something out. A couple days ago I tried the standard, as-little-effort-as-possible route to getting a group: sitting and spamming "LFG Mando Raiders". Hoping someone else would do the work for me, right? I wrote down the potential group members names by a /who check and a level range. No dice. I went back to my main for 2 hours, went back on my alt and this time tried "LFM Mandos tank/dps" and got 5 different people, 2 tanks and 3 DPS.

Every single one of them was in Fleet 2 hours before.

I know you don't want to expend any more effort than is minimally possible. I know you'd rather someone else coddle you and make sure you got up, dressed, and to school on time. Make your own groups, you'll get a group faster and have more fun.

I support this wholehartedly now. Its not a matter of socializing. Sitting in one spot spamming LFG messages or whispering random people to join ag roup is not socializing. no one remembers you that way.

The way people develop relationships in these games is by playing together. Make that part easier to promote socializing.

The other factor is, if someone wants to do a FP, it is ok for it take a while for groups to form. That is human nature, you will not always have people instantly waiting to do what you want. However, someone who is LFG should not have to stay in one area spamming chat hoping that interested parties will see that message. They should be able to move around and do other things they want to in different areas, while being advertised for a group. Having to stay in one spot not doing anything else isn't socializing.

A dungeon finder similar to WoW, but only server specific would be great. Allow us to pick the FP or Heroic(s) we want to do and let us pick what role we are willing to play and automatically start groups when roles are filled. It is 2012 now, a better system has to exist other than spam chat.

I wouldn't have a problem with a finder that was server-specific, either.

WTB a LFG feature too. Please, stop with the stupid "community" thing; it's a morg, FFS, you've got your guildies and I really pity you if you need to find "friends" in a morg.
