Update on LFG System

    Just a small Information / update for those around here who did not read/saw it. At the Moment the Devs are testing a *new* coded LFG-System on the PTS.
    During this patch, we’ll be turning on updates for the Activity Finder. While the UI itself looks the same visually, the backend has been completely rewritten. This rewrite should make the Activity Finder much more reliable, especially under heavy load. We’d encourage you to help us stress test this system on Wednesday, July 17 from 2-4pm EDT. During this time, we’ll be keeping a close eye on the LFG system and its behavior, and some of the development team will even be queueing for dungeons with you! Please be sure to review the known issues below, as well.

    Best regards

    P.s.: I hope I didn't made a mistake by posting this here :s !

    If you're not ready, don't use the LFG tool. Plain and simple.

    This.It gets really old missing queues cause you went out to smoke or had to bio.0

    On the other hand, it would suck even more if 3 persons who had been waiting 15 mins in queue would end up waiting for an AFK before finally having to kick him, and queue back again. Having a query sent before forming the group makes perfect sense to me. The opposite would waste the time of three persons, instead of wasting just your time.

    So I have to babysit this thing because of that?Just kick the person if they are afk and requue for another. I've been hating this ever since they made it this way.Just get rid of the damn thing and ignore any thing that follows his reasoning.

    The kicked person will have to requeue. So, why don't YOU requeue when you come back after missing a ready check for a whole minute? The difference between you missing a queue ready check or you getting kicked for being AFK is that in the latter, you also waste the time of everyone else in that group instead of just yours.

    If you are waiting for 30 minutes or more it wastes alot of time.Usually it doesn't even take that long to find a replacement.Even tanks and healers.Also having one afk does not prohibit you from proceeding in a dungeon.

    At this point, it is a software efficiency issue.

    My piece of advice would be to stop smoking. It's very bad to your health. However if you are incapable of overcoming your addiction, then I can suggest an addon that automatically accepts lfg prompts.

    Wow that is some strong entitlement. What makes you think that you are so special that your time is worth more than the rest of the group?
