I would have to disagree with you. I've been in WoW since vanilla beta and I've seen WoW grow before my eyes. It was nice that a "PLAYER" created the LFG channel so that the community can easily set groups for instances. However, the dungeon finder was the best thing that happened to WoW for leveling. It allowed you to knock down quests, put yourself in a queue and hope it popped. When it did pop, you were able to knock down quests and do dungeons without having to sit there for hours spamming for group. You are not looking at the logic of all this.

A game without dungeon finder is just not a game. I don't care for the social part of the game. It's like saying, "get rid of the auction house, I would rather spam my items in chat rather then put in an auction". That doesn't make sense.

Let's not forget, the game has too many heroics that can't be soloed. I have 3 heroics in my logs and I can't seem to find anyone that want's to do them. When I try to invite someone, they don't want to be a part of it. So yea, dungeon finder is really good for instances and heroics.

On the other hand, LFG flag is horrible. Most of the people LF runs are already in the runs.

I'm getting tired of trying to look for groups without a dungeon finder. Either no one is responding, or the folks that do respond tell me to be more patient and stop spamming. It's a tough line to walk figuring out how often to spam your LFG message.

I have had no issues finding a group without a LFD tool...that being said i dont see a problem with a SERVER only LFG but no CROSS Server..that is what kills community. And on a game like this Community matters.

they should have a lfg specific channel b/c the general chat can be polluted by arguing trolls personally I would love a lfg tool

I am pretty frustraded with trying to find groups atm.
Initially i was against a LFG tool , but right now i cant find any groups at all.

This is partly because i am ahead in level of most (40) on my server, but there realy is a lack of interest in flashpoints at times it seems, That or people jsut run with firends and guilds.

A cross server LFG tool would ensure that people of all levels would find groups, even late game when you start leveling atls.
On another note finding groups for heroics is hard aswell i can see 5 people on the planet i am on and ask for heroics not 1 single perosn will respond.

It is not gamebreaking but yeah LFG tool please.

go back to wow.

Dungeon Finder is the worst thing ever to be implemented in a mmorpg.

I can Agree with a finder that gets the menbers in your party together, from your server, but moving there, and so on, should be your responsibility.

MMORPG's need timesinks.

Edit: why people want to implement WoW mechanics in SW: Tor is beyond me. This types of requests, allready ruined an otherwise good mmorpg (yeah wow). Players managed to destroy that game, and now, are starting to want to destroy this one. , All in favor of FAST, GOOD AND EASY.

SW:ToR is the best MMO ever and the first that can be played Solo.

Getting groups together for flashpoints and heroic quests is rather painful compared to the simplicity of WoW's Dungeon Finder. We have to struggle with shouting over a congested chat channel and try to flag ourself as LFG that I'm certain 80% of the player population is unaware of.

It'd ease my heart if I new something was in the works...
No. keep this a real MMO.
Daoc, EQ, EQ2...all these didn't have "dungeon finders" and it worked perfectly.
you want to do dungeons? go out there and find a group. works fine and you'll meet new people.

It's a delicate matter, thread lightly i would say, start by making a chat-channel for group finding. That along with more people joining as the game starts for real; should make it alot easier.

If it still doesnt really work, then start looking for a dung-finder. Well thats how I would have done it.
