how can you be against something that allows people to group faster? As of now I don't eve bother with flashpoints. Not all of us can play at peek times and many of us dont want to star over on higher pop servers.

hurry up and implement this already please. A lot of servers out there don't have the populations at different levels to find groups, I'd also like to see a same server tool for heroics, I don't think I touched any of them on half the planets because no one wanted to do them.

Go outside if you want some community...no foreal...

The community in TOR across servers is small enough that even with lfg we can still have a community (whatever that means)

I want instant queues...tired of staring at the fleets poor fixtures...

This is one of my biggest complaints and a feature that should have been in on release. Cross Server however might prove complicated due to the way the game is setup. I would be happy for just a LFG tool that works across worlds with the ability to summon a player to the instance.

In all the discussion of a cross-server LFG tool, some folks keep coming back to the "community destruction" argument and I simply cannot understand it. I would love to have more examples of what the benefits are of an isolated server community and how exactly that would be destroyed by a cross-server LFG tool.

So far I have experience on a few different servers ranging from low-pop to very heavy. None of them have felt like a true community. General chat is often nothing more than pointless aol-speak chatter, trolls, and the occasional racist/homophobic slur. Is this the precious community we don't want to disrupt?

When I find groups for flashpoints, the chat is kept to a minimum aside from requests to space-bar through any dialog. Attempts at conversation are ignored in favor of rushing through to the final boss. This is not a slam against SWTOR, but an observation about all MMO communities and the types of players this genre draws.

Standing around on the fleet spamming chat for LFG is just frustrating and does not contribute to a sense of community. An intra-server only LFG tool would be a great start, but does nothing to help people on dying servers.

Please reconsider adding a cross-server LFG tool as soon as possible!

Yeah, stupid SWTOR. I'm back for a bit
Our lack of a proper LFD tool will black out the sun!
Then we shall cancel our subs in the shade!

DOnt care if it is cross server or not
But I do want a LFG tool ASAP
should be number one priority
If itís a good idea, go ahead and do it. It is much easier to apologize than it is to get permission.
