    I'd pay real money to see my norn in a schoolgirl uniform. And I asked for LFG tool from the very release, maybe I'd still be playing if they released it from start. Hope it's true and it will work for fractals, I might be back to the game then.

    Finally, GW2 updates to a modern MMO by including basic features. My time is valuable, and standing in Lion's Arch spamming LFG is not worth it. Getting halfway through a dungeon run and then quitting because 1 person leaves is not worth it. People mistake shouting in general chat for social interaction. As Fencers pointed out, MMO's have progressed from the EQ days where group interaction was required to do any type of advancement in the game. MMO cater both solo and group play, and if they don't provide tools to promote group play beyond a chat window, they do so at their own peril.

    Swimwear? Hm... I might finally get up and buy GW2. No, seriously.

    Spamming mapchat in Lion's Arch is silliness.

    http://gw2lfg.com/

    Over 4.5 million groups formed - at x5 is 22 million player experiences.
    Takes less than a moment to put it up, groups form generally within 2 minutes.

    Needing a 3rd party website outside of the game to form a group is madness. Thank heavens for this new feature when it comes. Has there been an official response to this 'leak'?

    Yea, I don't really think you can use an ancillary, third party tool out of game as a defense for the antiquity of GW2's LFG "features".

    In fact, you can't really. It's intellectually dishonest and at worst, um, stupid.

    Hehe, would also be philosophically opposed to Anet's stated design goals too!

    To be honest, Anet have never ever nailed a single secondary system in 5 titles of the Guild Wars series. Core gameplay, excellent. Everything else, sloppy as a drunk on St. Patty's Day.

    "Madness" is a little extreme lol. It takes a moment to put up a listing, people whisper you or simply /join on you in game.

    Colin did say recently that it was being worked on and would be out this year.

    and those codes were taken directly from the .dat file so yes, it's coming soon

    I don't think they respond to leaks, but the official statement was 'We are working on a better LFG system' afaik.
    However, there might be ways to find out if the leaks are true if you know how to decode the GW2 strings.

    Well it's like Fencer's said, it goes against the entire nature of a video game to have to use a complete detatched service offered by another povider to enable functionality in your game. I think that's way past silly, which is why I chose madness.

    Imagine if you had to teleport via waypoints by using gw2cartographer.com, instead of the in game map.

    Same level of ridiculous. But good news that they are working on it, for sure.

    I played WoW for years without one, they didn't implement one until late Wrath so maybe that's why it's no biggie to me. Well, that and I mostly run with my guild.

    A school outfit, really? I'm still waiting for the NPC attire they promised to add before the game even launched. Ngh. Though the addition of a LFG tool will be very useful if it goes ahead. I just hope it doesn't have a negative impact upon the community spirit and is limited to one's realm.

    Yep

    Swimsuits and school outfits? Speaks volumes.

    Speaks volumes about someone's feelings getting ruffled that most people playing mmorpg's like to party after a long night of killing bitches ;-)

    I am soooo going to buy a school-uniform for my big bearded Norn male Warrior, along with pair of glasses and the hope to get a brown leather school-satchel as a backpack-skin.

    Now we only need areas that enforce town-clothes, just like the SSC-beach that takes your clothes off.

    Is it really that hard to make the current LFG display a text on what you are looking for?

    Did it really take that long just to do this?

  18. #58
    So it doesn't matter what my opinion of a 'real' finder is, because it's the same amount of valid as yours.
    I've always hated this logic. The idea that, "I can take anything, tack the word 'opinion' on it, and it becomes 100% valid and no one can disagree."

    There's the quick way, and the right way.

    Well, the current tool wouldn't be so bad if Anet had just developed it further just a tiny bit.

    Actually, I am not even sure that is even necessary. Had Anet simply created... a UI button for the LFG that was less oblique than in a sub menu of the social menu.

    I mean. For realsie. The way they implemented the LFG smacks of laziness or ineptitude. Likely both.
