No one uses the LFG channel and if they do there just lfg no comment on what they want etc. I didnt pay 80 dollars to go back to the days of EQ1 dungeons and shouting in chat for a group that system is old and outdated. do it for the love of the sith please put in a LFG tool

It's not 2005 anymore, and a "Flashpoint Finder" tool would be nice.

Saying that it ruins communities is ridiculous, of course. People who won't talk to each other when an LFD tool is released won't talk to each other now, so nothing is lost.

In any case, here's the deal: Bioware is going to release a version of WoW's LFD tool at some point (because people want it and it's useful); you know it, and I know it, and all of the crying in the world isn't going to stop it. So let's just put it out now and be done with it. People won't leave over the addition of the LFD tool (no, you won't), but people might leave over the absence of it. And when I say "leave," I don't mean that they'll quit in a fit of anger; I mean that they'll simply just return to the games that are more polished and complete. To all of you people who are saying "good riddance": I'm sorry, but you need those people; your own subscription is not enough to keep the game in business.

There is no patience out there to allow a new game time to develop. There is no patience, because there is no NEED for patience; there is already a game out there that has all of these tools that are now perceived to be "basic." WoW is like your spouse of 25 years: you're not blown away by them anymore, but you are comfortable with them. You may have an affair once in a while, but how many people actually make it 25 years with their spouse, and then dump them for someone new? Not many. Everybody gets one month of free play time, so Bioware has exactly one month to convince people to give up the game that they know, the characters that they have had for years, the friends that they have made, etc. and persuade them to move to SWTOR.

And yes, so sorry, a Looking For Flashpoint tool is a requirement for that.

So are UI-customizing mods, but that's a subject for a different thread.

Adding a dungeon finder would be a sign of the end. Look at WoW now and compare it to back in BC and before. The game is a social wasteland. You can run dungeons and even raids without a word being spoken.

If you are referring to a LFG tool as in the Dungeon Finder system, there is already a long thread about this topic.

Dungeon Finder System Eventually

If you are referring to a LFG tool as in a global Looking for Group channel when you have to be queued up to chat in that channel, then ignore my link from above.

If unable to group with friends or forming a flashpoint group, I have used general chat .

No LFG tool is needed. It does add to game-play or community.

There is such a thing as too much convenience.
This, BW are trying to encourage social connections within the game, and LFG tool destroys that.

global lfg channel - yes please. porting to instances once the group is formed - I can live with that. automatic matching tool? please, god, no. automatic cross server matching tool? subscription canceled.

LFD killed my enjoyment of WoW. i didn't leave WoW for SWTOR, I left WoW and all the characters i had for years, becasue I couldn't stand it anymore. tried resubbing few months ago, was feeling nostalgic. few days and multiple pugs later... I was done. for good.

automatic matching tool is like printing money to solve bad economy. it works beautifully for a short term but in a long run, it makes the situation even worse then before you implemented it.

I'd rather not fall to my death in the fleet center from the bare lag of 500 people sitting there waiting on their queues...
