Luck of the draw I guess. It has been pretty much an instant pop for me the last couple of days. I'm not doing HMs but higher level fps. I think the level of the fp may have something to do with it as well as the fp itself. For example, I hate Collocoid so I don['t queue up for it. I know others that feel the same way about that one. Kaon is the same way. I like that fp, but I find peeps stay away from it. You need a good tank or it is a nightmare.

seems like there's not enough dps...i'll get 3 or 4 pop ups of the same group where one dps declines each time but the other 3 members r the same. and then nothing for hours

They wont let people queue for flashpoints while in warzones. Warzones pop faster (10-13 min, instead of a possible 20+ minute wait) so the majority of people who have no patience are just mashing out warzone after warzone because its faster, and flashpoints are kind of getting the shaft. Best thing to do is push flashpoints in general chat on your server, get people to queue up, say there are people queue'd. And then you still have to deal with clueless dps queuing as tank to speed up the pop.

kinda standard. Tanks seem to be the limiting reagent here. when i queue my healer with a tank guildie, our q always insta-pops. a dozen times now....zero waiting. Make friends with a competent tank and q up together. You should almost always get a q instantly.

Pretty much this looks like a lot of people are rolling healers and not enough tanks. We did several FPs after agreement that I setup as tank with 3 DPS and healers

Join a guild?
Do FP with them?
Societies in decline tend not to innovate. I just wish we had cellphones to report quests. Guess light speed tech and cell phone tech are mutually exclusive.

Well, if queues are taking you 20 minutes then imagine how a dps feels...queue probably takes them an hour.

Its clearly not a problem with player number, but with tank numbers. So, i dont think consolidation will do much to help that.
Kicking players who are atempting to tank is also a bad policy. You should try to teach them, especially since you're in the same server.

Also, the incentive to run dungeons is probably on the low side when many lvl 60 are already campaign/black hole geared

It just fluctuates. I run 2 Tanks, healer and DPS all doing HM FP's on Harbinger. I don't bother queueing on DPS without a guildmate as tank or healer. That is just an exercise in frustration. On healer and tanks, sometimes insta-pops, sometimes I wait. Does not seem to be any rhyme or reason as to healer or tank.

I'm on Harbinger as well. I've never had to wait 20 minutes as a healer but the times have definately been longer since 1.4 although I'm unsure why other than people are queing less for some reason.

I wait lots 20+ minutes as dps but that's not unexpected honestly. I still love the group tool. I'd probably not get groups at all without it because I don't have a guild and I don't have the patience to stand around in fleet looking for a group.
