Question for ZOS, why no Trials option for the activity finder?

Been looking for people to do Aetherian Archives with literally all night (currently 1:30PM, been on the game since midnight) due to people leaving when they get bored of waiting too long for me to hunt down the last few guys. I can't help but think "man, this would be so much easier if the activity finder could help me".

So far, the activity finder only has options for PVP and Group Delves (as in 4-players). Why is there not an option for the Trials in Craglorn?

I mean, trials are an activity, right? So the Activity Finder's job should be to find me people with whom to do the activity.

Is it because it can't manage sticking 12 players together or something?

    *edit* Do a search prior to creating new threads. There is a lot of good info and usually something we think of already is being discussed unless it's breaking news.

    In the prior patch notes around December or so, Trials were removed with the updates to grouping tools because when we had these, they actually didn't work per ZOS so these were removed.

    Try doing a search as well as reading the patch notes or dev tracker prior to creating new threads.

    Trials will be added to the group finder at some point but because they tend to be very mechanic heavy having a group that knows what to do is a lot easier so most people won't run pug groups in trials.

    This would be an awesome addition if it got added to the finder. Would make finding trial groups so easy. Other MMO's out there can que for raids(trials), I don't see why ESO can't..

    As has already been stated in this post, it was ALREADY in the game and subsequently removed because it was not stable and very buggy.

    Well, why not fix it? That's not really a reason to shut it down. If people can que for large pvp groups, it's only fair that pve can can do the same.

    I think it gets the job done. I've already geared out a tank and healer in vet runs and don't mind running trials just for the fun of it. Having to go all the way out to Crags just to find a trials group is a little tedious.

    I can understand if there wasn't enough people queuing or their being a funding issue but just some bugs and instability?

    I mean, pug trials are really no diffrent from using a group finder tool. You just have to wait longer asking in chat.
    I've ran Asylum in pugs many, many times. St. Olms first jump(at 90%) nearly wipes the party everytime...even after you explain he's going to do it.
    But if you're saying the finder tool doesn't work half the time, and puts you in phantom queues, you have a point...

    Bad idea, pugs are bad in general and would be worse in a trial.

    Imagine doing the MoL twins in a pug? Non-stop wipes. Groups in discord can't get it right...

    All the way to Crags? Like it's further away than anywhere else?

    The only way I could see it working is that in order to join the queue you must have already completed the trial on that character. Having somebody new to a trial in a pug is not a good idea.

    An LFT global chat would be nice too. It's boring farming craglorn while waiting for LFM in chat.

    Trying to PUG 4 man dungeons is punishing enough as it is, so I cant imagine how rage inducing a trial finder would be.

    I honestly think we should have one again. Having random group finder "working" as allowed diversity to be apart game play. I can tell you four different ways to do final boss in banished cells. There's 3 ways to do coa2 lizard.

    It would be hard but I believe just like dungeons we could pass on knowledge and improve. Also would have less dps race tactics and more flexible, and defensive soultions.

    Wanna 10 light attack bow spammers, healer and tank? Insta fail.

    But i think it's kinda possible:
    - only CP 160+ or even 300+;
    - trial achievement required;

    For Veteran, NOOOOOOOO.

    I’m not even sure about normal, because we will see a huge influx of posts and whining saying they are too hard and needs nerfing etc

    Content is already a pushover as it is, we don’t need any more nerfs.
