Frustrated and bored.

Oh well I'm logging off frustrated again at having to spam general for 2 hours to not find a tank and for 3 different dps to join and leave and say "fck this" just to find a hard mode. I have also looked for a guild that is running FP's and joined one recently but they also are short on tanks like in every game. I know people say that LFG tool will destroy the community but I really don't see how, as it is now 9 people on my friends list don't log on any more and I met them by doing flashpoints and added them in the hope that I can get a HM. Community in games these days are in guilds, if you look at general chat it's filled with the same idiots that troll in wow and rift and all other games. If that is the community that people so desperately want to save then them people must be trolls too.

I like this game a lot but getting to 50 then only being able to do black talon most of the time because people just want to do the fast run for the daily is boring the hell out of me. I'v Been 50 for about 3 weeks now and only done 3 different FP's and only a handful of FP's overall (looking everyday). Unless you have friends that play on same server or you're on a server that is over full this game is just slow and boring. Also if you want to do your mountain of daily quests you can't look for a group at the same time because you have to be stuck in imperial fleet spamming.

I won't be renewing my sub unless something is done about this fast, I predict that a lot of other people will also let their subs expire.

Personally I feel Bioware is doing it right. Our server has a community, rivalries, and a lot of good things that come from not having a LFG tool. The are convenient and arguably very useful tool but the second WoW added it there was pretty much zero community anymore. Everyone just sat idly in the capital city waiting for some sort of queue to pop and if they wiped once they raged, quit, and queued up again. It destroyed any sense of community whatsoever. I kinda liked they days where I knew people on my server, who was good, who was bad, and had to take time to traverse the world to get to the instance. It is part of the fun.

Everyone is different and some would say that is terrible and in no way fun. I played on a low pop WoW server and groups could be very difficult to find. My suggestions is build a network of good friends amd run consistently with them or move to a higher population server. Otherwise guess you will just have to be patient and see of they introduce a LFG tool. I can tell you right now it will be long after you un sub.

Most tanks leave if we wipe anyway or the dps do and the group disbands, personally when playing wow without the LFG tool nothing changed when they added it. I still went with guildies as did most other people at the time. Unless you was in a guild with friends you really struggled to get a heroic together. The best thing wow ever done was to add the LFG tool, not everyone has 2-5 hours just to be able to do 1 instance. The server can be just as social with or without the LFG tool.

Well that is what everyone is doing right now as that is the only way to find a group. And trying to build a network of friends.... I have added a lot of people to my friends and kept in contact with them but them, like me are just sick of it and have quit. Like I said the ONLY way to not have to wait an hour + is to be lucky enough to get a guild that run them constantly which just isn't happening. Also rivalries are mostly from pvp or elitists trying to get 1 step ahead of each other in Ops. Paying to transfer off just so I can get some HM run is just going to kill the community of that server anyway so what is the point? I just want to have fun.

What I get from your post is your lucky enough to find a guild/have a group of friends or a full server that you can do that with so you don't want the LFG tool as your not looking outside your own bubble. Just because that is how you play your game doesn't mean everyone can play theirs the same.

What server? I see plenty of groups LF DPS daily on belgoth's beacon and I do them daily as well, I've experienced nearly every HM FP though I do them with my guildies.

I guess your server is definitely different than here then, we seem to be generally short on healers and have a ton of people rolling Guardians... not that any of them are geared or good but they can manage most of the HM FPs.

Every server is different it seems. We struggle finding good dps on our server. We have a lot of good tanks and healers but very few geared and competent dps.

This probably won't come as a surprise, but people who play WoW will also probably play SWTOR. That's the attitude some people have. I am of the mindset to try something a few times before giving up. I have to shake my head and laugh when kids these days don't get their way the first time though. More evidence that the current generation is the entitlement generation.
