Annoyance: The group finder don't remember my role

I don't know why the box keep getting checked but sometimes it puts me as healer even though I have un-selected that role on several occasions.

Signed and agreed. Every time I log onto my commando it keeps trying to queue me as a healer. The first week it didn't do that so the first few times its happened I've just joined the queue without a second thought only to have an instant queue pop followed quickly by the realization that it assigned me to heal.

Then I look like the jerk who queued as a healer just for quicker pop times. I always just leave because it's not fair to the other three.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

I was having the same issue with my mercenary. I'm dps and it would always have healer checked also, even if I unchecked it the previous time. What solved it for me was queing up, then reopen the queue screen... then uncheck healer and click the box in the bottom left that says "update roles". After I did that, I've run 15-20 random queues and it always has just the dps role selected. It seems to me that it only saves it if you make changes while actually in the queue already.

I am a tank. I am only a tank. I never DPS. I never check the role "DPS." However, I often have to uncheck that role when queuing for a random group.

I've queued as a DPS, got tagged as a healer. Declined, verified it was checked as a DPS only, requeued, got tagged as a healer.

Every patch I keep avidly reading the patch notes, but no mention of this being addressed.

They should also let you invite anyone into your group rather then be forced to reque. We couldn't finish the operation last week because we lost two players and could not invite other guild members to come in.

You can actually invite your guild members. For that instance, let them queue for the group finder then select their name.

Yes, this happens often for me. I sign up as DPS and get a healing or tank spot with my different chars.

I even sent a ticket about it and got some kind of autorespons.

They need to look into this, it has been a problem for some time now.

I noticed a few weeks ago the options reset when I switched computers, but if I turned of one computer and then went back in on the same one the setting was saved. Not sure if that would help isolate what may be happening.
