I just queued for random hard modes as DPS, and several times i had to update my role because it kept putting me as heals. Then as the queue popped and i took it, it ported me in and my role was set to heals... I DONT HAVE a healing spec, nor do i have a set... Please fix the damn bug, i'm sick of having to leave groups that i just sat in a long queue to get into, all because this bug is setting me as a role i'm not fit to perform!

I never, ever, ever queue as DPS, only as a tank. I never check the DPS box. Ever.

I constantly uncheck the DPS box. Why is the LFG tool selecting roles for us like that?

Last night our shadow dps was set as tank, and our shadow tank was set as dps. It worked out due to luck, but in a random group there's no guarantee that you will get the right people for the group.

Had the same thing happen to my group a few nights ago. Kept forcing our sorc to be heals. Had to switch him to the leader and that seemed to fix it. Pretty annoying bug though :/

Its overall very crappy last night we had a person who we found through the group finder who had to relog because the game bugged out and we had to leave instance, reform group and wait 10 minuttes thats so stupid even with the same group

yeah i know what you're talkin about. my bro-n-law and i often team and que up together for hm's. im a guardian tank and he's a dps shadow (and he sets as dps in que). more times than not when we get a team together and are set to go, it has set him as a tank as well thus forcing us to redo it. does get annoying.

Honestly, this is about as close to a "game breaker" as you can get.

I have found if I queue in a group, that happens to me. Fix seems to be to take lead, change to dps only, start our group in the queue and then transfer lead back.
