No thanks.
You know that you wouldn't be forced to use it, right?

Rift is lightyears ahead in terms of features. One can only pray TOR catches up.

I would be spared completely the cesspool that is /general if we had a LFG tool.

A looking for group tool would mean:

I don't have to read guildspam
I don't have to read goldseller spam
I don't get tempted to tell trolls to go away
I could actually find groups for Flashpoints.

Please BW give us LFG

No thanks.
That sounds like its entirely the fault of the anti-social players you hung out with.

An LFG tool would be useful and I'm glad they plan on implementing one eventually. Its an MMO, the only things that can ruin the "sense of community" is the community itself....not a friggin tool.

Shrug...I don't do warzones (hate cage match PvP) and I only group with guildmembers so the entire issue is pretty much moot to me.

LFG tool would be nice because as for now it is hell hard to get a tank at all just by yelling on channels + I would be happy to do quest instead of sitting on my *** near flashpoints entrance waiting for completing party.

I don't understand the logic behind this useless argument. Everybody who has this argument makes it seem like you don't find baddies in General chat trying to form your group.

Baddies will come regardless of which method of random group assembly you use. Your only guarantee for a non-bad group is ti form up with a group of friends, and if that is what you're doing, you don't care about LFG or General chat either way.
