When is the LFG tool going to be added?

Just curious.

Logged in after a long absence (about a month or so) and realized there wasn't anything to do beside dailies and pvp.

I did the new dailies. They were fun I guess. I wanted to try out the new dungeon too but then soon realized that nobody was doing dungeons and hardly anyone was in the fleet. I know it's not peek time but why should I have to schedule my play time around when a majority of the people will be online in the fleet?

So when are we getting a WoW style LFD tool?

I'm wondering the same thing...

I literally could not get a single flashpoint group after the foundry. And that's WITH me being a Healer and my friend being a Tank...

I can't believe that the entire community has chosen not to do FPs, I think it's more likely that everyone's just given up looking for groups.

They say 1.3 but who knows since rated WZs got pushed back and PvP seems to get priority.

Also since they lack the ability to make it cross server it won't really have much impact on low-pop servers and non peak times.

Is the LFG tool going to be for warzones only? or will we be able to use it for flashpoints and heroics. The game really needs it.

i would still say it's 1.3 there are 2 different teams working on each of those projects. It's not like bioware has every single person just working on one thing. They have 1 team dedicated to PVP 1 team dedicated to LFG, a couple of teams dedicated to new content and so on.

Expect it to be in 1.3 but as in any mmo things can change. I also remember hearing 1.3 is supposed to be out sooner then it took for 1.2. So let's hope.

the LFG tool will be for PVE sort of like EQ2's LFG where you put in what instance you are doing and what class you are and need and so on.

It is NOT going to be like WoW's current one.

i'm sure they will do another free trial when the patch comes out so you can decide to resub again.

Yeah they don't have the ability to make it cross server yet. I think it will be in the future though.
