    Quit complaining and start your own group. Get the AutoInvite add-on. Join a decent PvP guild. The whole point of Cyrodiil is group play. Don't blame others if you can't find a group, make your own.

    I don't PvP much ...& when I do I most enjoy defending walls or knocking down walls!
    :)
    I take a scouting mission and while I'm doing it I watch Zone chat to find out where we're all at...
    & after I get my scout report I go and join the Action.

    I agree with what others have said, its way more fun to hang out on your favorite keep wall and wait till someone else calls out for a group in zone & then join that.

    Just start going to flagged keeps, I feel like the problem with Cyro is that people just sit and wait to be in a group instead of riding to a flagged keep or responding to a call for defense. Then your pop says 3 bars but maybe 2 is actually doing anything, perhaps less if you count groups in IC or just derping around.

    But if you take the imitative and learn to play on your own and assist wherever you can you’ll get better and you’ll have something to do while you wait to be invited.

    So much this!

    People who continually spam LFG just get ignored. Especially when they ignore people asking for help defending/attacking.

    People who grab the initiative by the scruff of the neck and are LFF (looking for a fight) - they're the people I'd like to group with.

    I've been playing Cyro since the game launched, and have never really gotten involved with a guild. I do call out 'lfg' on a regular basis, but if I don't get an invite, I'm usually satisfied to do my own thing. My main complaint about joining guild groups (which is why I always just use 'lfg') is that it drives me crazy to have some power-tripping dude screaming 'ON CROWN' the entire time I'm playing. I usually do stick with the group, but if I don't, its because I have a reason.

    My suggestion to the OP is to learn how to track the conflict points, so that you don't need a group to be in the right place, and do your best to call out enemy movements in zone chat. While you certainly gain more AP running with a group, Cyro can be quite fun without one.

    I.may have replied to this already ... But if you're not getting responces it's most likely that when you group you don't help seige, you wonder off solo, you don't listen on mic , don't follow crown ... Are suspected of spying.for other factions ( loyal players don't get ignored )

    Ask your self what is it you are doing wrong to stop the invites

    I think one reason people are so against starting their own groups is because everyone expects the lead to know what they're doing and/or where they're going, and to have some basic strategic ability in deciding what locations to hit. I know that's personally why I never form groups out of people posting lfg; the infrequent periods I'm in Cyro, I'd rather not lead other people in aimless circles because I have no idea wtf I'm doing lol. I'll drop a 'lfg' in zone, but I'll also check the map and head out to where battles are happening. A lot of the time even if no one invites you to a group, you can find clumps of people to follow around.

    I know a couple of pve guys who entertain themselves by just randomly flipping resources all over the map. It distracts the other team, and if you get 4 or 5 people, often it flips before it shows up on the map. Eventually they get caught up with, but they average 5 or 6 flips before getting rumbled.

    Do that. Both fun and profit.

    I don't often invite randoms to our group (consisting of guild members) because they either aren't on comms which means they don't have a way to communicate important information or even sometimes hear important maneuvering information, or they come on and incessantly jabber and demand so much attention from everyone, they end up talking over the person trying to run crown and mess things up.

    I would suggest studying the map more and looking for "tells" that can help clue you in to where the action is. If you see more than one resource being taken by your alliance outside of a keep, it's a good idea to scoot over that direction before the keep gets flagged and you have too much enemy company to get there safely (as if there is such a thing in Cyrodil). If you see one of your keeps get flagged, check to see who flagged it and how many siege are down. If it's a lot, don't come in hot. Ride in at the side of the keep (watch for gankers), and dark up before coming in the side door. Rez people, put down siege, throw out a heal or shield, and pay attention. When I see the same player near me for a significant number of takes, and that person is fighting well, I take notice of them and will sometimes invite them to run with us. It's rare and I only do it for people who seem to have a good head for things, but it happens.

    Also, keep in mind that a lot of groups run together constantly, and they barely even need to communicate movement orders any more because the team instinctively knows how to read map tells and how to follow crown without having to constantly ask "Where are we going next? Where is crown? Should we do X/Y/Z? Where to crown? Where did you guys go?"...it's exhausting, and newcomers have a bad habit of breaking the peace and focus in long-time groups.
