This subject has no doubt been breached before but i feel this is going to become an urgent issue real soon, as more and more alts are being levelled and players find there is only quests out there waiting for them.

I am in a Guild and we run ops and fp's but i can't do the fp night and am also involved in an rp and a pvp night, but i have another night i want to do fp's on AND im on during the day but nothing is happening......

Im on the Trask Ulgo Server, which is RP-PVE and i think its pretty ok population wise, but i may be wrong.

It is so very rare to see anyone asking for or advertising for people to run FP's and it certainly seems to be never anywhere youre interested in anyway, or in particular.

My Sorc is 50 and has only ever run Black Talon, a couple of low levels he did on his own, so the next 3 i think, and now he sometimes runs Lost Island with the guild if not enough people have turned up for ops night.

Ops....when do you ever see people asking for members to run ops...ive never seen it at all not once, but thats another story.

In World of Warcraft the dungeon runs, or Flashpoints, are a very important part of the game and by gearing up through them you ready yourself for harder and harder ones before you move into raids, operations.

They don't really play as big a part here and im very happy with that, and have got by quite nicely ignoring most of them BUT i feel im missing a huge part of the story and if by running them, in normal or hard mode, i was able to collect some comms that will eventually allow me to put towards some more ops gear then all the better and we'll all see the other bit of the story were missing out on.

We need Flashpoint Cross-Server Pug finder and we need it now.....im levelling my first, and probably last, alt and with nobody at all interested in going into the Black Talon on normal and have been asking for about 2ours in total playing time now, evenings, daytime in week, weekday evenings when i can...nothing. Im going to give up and just quest him up to 50 with some pvp thrown in for good measure, where ill have myself sorely kicked im sure as i may have the health but not the abilities or skill tree points to even pretend to compete but ill enjoy it all the same, i like a challenge.

You want to put your name down for a flashpoint, specific or random, HM or normal, and then go quests etc while you wait for it to come up....timing showing roughly how long in WOW is very helpful too, if you have an hour is ok i know i have time to do other jobs and come back, in RL or in game.

Lets not have lots of players missing out on HUGE sections of this awesomely brilliant game AND lets make levelling alts even more fun THAN JUST the complely awesome storylines.

Thankyou

Vladnar

ps, I really really really hope i just don't get back "try a different server, or try a different guild" cos my guild is really really awesome and i couldn't hope to have joined such an excellent group of people".

I agree I am levelling my first character level 41 BH loving the questing but I want to experience the whole of the game, I have only done the first four flashpoints but now I find it so hard to get a group for flashpoints and heroic missions, spent 2 hours around the imperial fleet 2 days ago trying to get a group for boarding party, found me and another but nobody else was interested, it's really disappointing that a system for flashpoint finding doesn't exist, makes me want to quit the game, hope the devs implement this soon.

Group forming tools yes

Cross server is a bad idea, you want to be able to friend and meet again the player you find in the group finder.
friendship or partnership can be form.

Having a group of total stranger every single time isn't fun.


In wow, blizzard has stated that MoP dungeon should be
- doable in 30 minutes (over lunch break)
- doable with no coordination between player
- doable with no optimisation of gear or gameplay.

this lead to easy, dull, faceroll dungeon content that you only do for the weelkly valor point. It was a tim where you would jump into a UBRS or a scholomance for the fun of it. now it's consider a chore, a must do to valor cap.

I wish SWToR wouldn"t take that road.

Group finder, yes, cross server, no. TOR's community is already bad. If we introduce corss server queueing, then it'll get worse. That is what happened in WoW, let's not see it here, please.

No.

Just let ppl allow to leave the less populated servers. Or merge them
It's a trap!

Brilliant, thankyou all.

No not cross server then, it would be excellent to at least ensure that if you do find a group you can make a friend and go with them again etc...

Great idea........Looking For Group on same server.

Thankyou

Hmm yes I agree not cross server, but same server flashpoint/heroic mission finder would be helpful and appreciated.
