Same here.
Big NO to any dungeon finder.
unless you want pull down the community level to the one in WoW.

At first i was against the lfg funtion but i guess people now days have been spoiled by the use of it and they dont even use the other page. I do think that the funtion should still be limited to servers or one or two servers.

Hope they'll add it fast because finding groups in the current way is atrocious. Unless the people i already know and started playing with are online i don't bother at all.

There's really no reason not to have the system, the people who want to group by spamming can do so regardless.

I've participated into countless discussions about this and i've yet to see any valid argument against it that isn't "i don't like it so you can't have it" from people who like to live in 1999.

As for the community aspect, i won't even go there, if you want to be a socialite by all means go ahead, but people shouldn't be forced into interacting with each others by the lack of modern features.

I would not be angered by a dungeon tool being put in, but i want the option to play with people just from my server, for various of reasons.

But what i don't see as a valid argument is people saying cross-server dungeon tools destroys the community, it makes no sense.
  • If you feel as if you want to get to know people, find people on your server who wants to do dungeons with people only from your server. It makes no sense for you to say that it destroys the community when you are still in power to do the flashpoints with people from your server, it is no different, you just ask around.
  • Secondly, community? You mean the community spamming the general chat with "LFG *insert flashpoint name here.* LFM *insert flashpoint name here*

It makes no sense, it is a stupid argument and it hurts my head, please stop.

There is a LFG tool. Open your social, click LFG, and type out what you want in the comment. More people do this, then you can just search it

To the people saying community isn't ruined? Right now, the level 40+ group on my server is small. We all know each other, and we all chat and joke around in flashpoints and heroics.

In WoW, no one talks anymore, other than to insult the weakest player. There's no friendship or anything. Many WoW players barely see each other as people. They are NPCs because they don't need to interact

Anyone who wants a LFG tool more advanced than what we have now is a WoW-kid as far as I'm concerned. They want the UI to do the work for them, instead of actually communicating with other human beings. This is an MMO. Learn to chat, and ask around. Maybe instead of spamming "LFG __", actually TALK.

What I read in the forum here is exactly the same type of player who ruined wow. It seems like the "young" generation that play MMO´s today can only be rude, unsocial etc.


Hopefully BW can resist their demands, else we got wow 2.0 - maybe GW is the solution then.... its a shame tho as SWTOR right now is really fun, like vanilla wow was once.

Actually it's the nostalgic long-time gamers who call anyone who doesn't want to be controlled "kids", like you did.

There IS a generation gap here, no doubt, and I find myself on the side of the younger generation despite being almost 40 and having been around since Ultima Online. The older generation confuses timesinks with challenge. They can't tell the difference. The younger generation doesn't.

My apparent immunity to the phenomenon of nostalgia gives me a clearer view than most older gamers. Vanilla WoW, EQ and DAOC all had a whole lot of crap in them that I'm glad is gone. Spamming general chat for a group while you sit on the fleet station is SWTOR's crap that needs to be purged.

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.
What was I just saying? This is how people who tell us we need to save the "community" seem to act. It's ironic that this rhetoric is spouted so often by people who would no doubt be in my /ignore list for a sheer LACK of manners and I wouldn't want them in my "community".

Thankfully, Bioware is aware that nostalgia is poison in the MMO business. It specifically makes people remember past games as having better communities than they really did, and makes those players try to turn back the features clock on new games in order to recapture something that only exists in their minds. Their memories aren't memories. They're fantasies. That's what nostalgia does.

shocked that this game does not have a dungeon finder at launch. Heard great things about the game before launch. After seeing it for myself it's very dissapointing, dungeon finder is a must. Don't know if i'll hang about till they get the dungeon finder, we'll have to wait long enough for that.
