Im constantly seeing in the chat box "LFG" blah blah blah and when i try group finder it takes forever to find a group. In fact i have never found a group lol. Longest queue ive been in is 20 minutes and got impatient. I was excited when it got introduced into the game which is one of the reason i resubbed. Is it me or do people just not use it? :

I use it for normal hardmodes because im a tank and theres really no way the common idiot can screw up a run for me.

I dont use it for hm lost island or sm ops, and i definately will never use it for those until biowares briliance can catch up to 5 years ago and implement gear and spec checks.

Nope, I don't use it.

No Chat Bubbles? No grouping.

Customize the "chat" box? Nope, sorry, that doesn't work for me.

Vent? Mumble? Nope, sorry, I'd rather listen to music.

Chat Bubbles + Voice Emotes would make grouping and communicating so much simpler (and more fun). Wouldn't hurt to have macroed chat as well so you can state your needs at the beginning of each run with a minimum of fuss.

Until then I'll solo.

Cheers...

I use it sometimes, but not frequently. Mainly as it brings me out of place. I'd be much more inclined to use it if I could just remain on the spot I was afterwards.

Use it all the time as a healer. As long as a tank somewhere uses it we're a-okay and insta-queue.

I think this game failed hard and I love to bash it, but the four times I've used group finder I always found a group in no more than 5 minutes. Small sample size, but it always worked out great and i'm surprised so many people don't like it.

I use it nearly every day, and a queue doesn't take longer than five minutes for me. Granted I am a tank, so tanks are in more demand than a DPS class. Reason why it may take longer for you is that you're queued for DPS? If so, then I'd expect those wait times. It can be difficult at times to find groups during off-times for non 50 HM runs, as the capped population queues much more than the 1-49 population.
