What is your basis for opposing a group-searching system in SWTOR?

I have to ask : what rep ?

Apparentely there are about 1 million subs at the moment, and about 100 server (simplified). So 10000 player per server. You think you can keep track of who's who in such environment ? Not even counting alt? I am pretty sure I could not.

Right now there are 0 people in cademimu and two people in taral v at going on 7pm on my server.

I'm sure somewhere someone is helping you complete an easily soloable quest atm though, so its all roses.
Actually I like to solo the heroic 2 man quests. It is quite fun. And to duo the 4 man heroic ones is also quite fun. I haven't found it hard to find a group for FPs since early access started. Usually takes me 2-5 minutes.

Also I don't want to help you, I just wish you wouldn't act like a child. Certainly though your posts aren't helping your case. Maybe you can even see that?

Great post Craig I agree.

This one is simple to put to bed, all the flashpoint shuttles leave from the Fleet, yes? Minus those two pesky ones on Ilum.. so why do you need a "finder"? If you want the group you should be on the Fleet anyways.. gg afk zombies waiting for the all powerful group ready box!! Go back to your pathetic dead wow.

but you DO know that there are 2 factions per server, and you see the majority of people again, especially the ones you leveled with?

As a poopsocker, it's my obligation to hate anything that would add fun and accessibility to the game. I also fully support the auction house and how little time and effort that was obviously put into it.

I wouldn't mind a server only LFG tool, but I strongly oppose cross-server grouping. Note that prior to LFG in WoW it had a tool very similar to the SWTOR one. It was never used and people just advertised in the Looking for Group channel or in Trade chat.

I'm a longtime WoW player, and when LFD came out in 3.2 it was great because you'd get instantly grouped with players that had a sense of ethics from server only runs. It seemed like such a great idea. BUT . . . .

Fast forward 2-3 years, and LFG has completely eroded any sense of community ethics and fair play. People ninja stuff constantly just to DE/vendor it from others who actually need the gear, the nerdraging is intolerable, and the server community has suffered as people become viewed as NPCs rather than as actual human beings. People are now walled off into their guilds and it's horrid.

Trust me, you don't want cross-server LFG. It seems like a good idea, but in the end it kills all the fun. It's kinda like crack in that way.

Besides, most people are still barely 20-ish, just hang out until we all get higher level. And level a healer, if you want to get runs quickly.

Trust me, if this stays server only, you'll get a rep. People will recognize you, and you'll get into the habit of having a friends list and organizing runs through them and your guild.

And if you act like a jerk, it will get around. That's how it used to be in WoW before crosserver grouping, even with the large server sizes.

So to all the little nerdraging WoW trolls who crave their protective blanket of anonymity, BEWARE.

I spent more than two hours spamming the Fleet General Channel and whisping various players to find some people to explore the Foundry.
I've been doing this for several days, and there's no way to find anyone anywhere.

It's NOT FUN. Period.

It's not fun not being able to explore a flashpoint, it's not fun being stuck on the Imperial Fleet to find someone to play with.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but even if a LFG tool is not fine by you, it's sometimes necessary to have something to find people to play with.
Moi aussi, j'aime les Chiss Burgers.
Chiss Burgers are so tasty !

I'm sorry but you've leveled too fast at launch. It's like getting to the stadium 3 hours before kickoff - it's very empty. But then right before kickoff, there's suddenly 60,000 screaming fans.

Give people some time to catch up, honestly you'll be ok.
