    Technically, what are the relationship between LFD, LFR and LFG??

    Are LFD/LFR technically part of LFG system???

    I would say yes. I'm not sure what technicality you are trying to define here. They are both Looking for - then dungeon and raid. And yes, I'd say both justify as kinds of groups.

    Technically, yes. They are all 'Looking For Group' methods.

    Is Premade = LFG?

    I would say no. LFG is where you are looking for an actual group that is forming with specific goals in mind, whereas LFR/LFD you dont specifically target any groups and just get dropped in randomly.

    But meh, small differences. just the way I see it, as its a seperate tool.

    Do you use the tool given by Blizzard, if yes, then yes.

    but blizzard never said premade == LFG. They don't even use LFG in any of their texts to represent premade.

    Premade using LFGList APIs (C_LFGList.ApplyToGroup(id,comment,tank,healer,dps))
    LFD using LFG APIs (JoinLFG(1))
    LFR using LFG APIs too. (JoinLFG(2)/JoinLFG(3))

    Ah, but now we end up talking programming. As Premades has more details to fill out. I thought we were talking technically classification.

    As far as I can tell, the only real difference is that LFR and LFD use an auto-matchmaking system, whereas LFG is simply a way to sort and form your own groups.

    That would put LFR and LFD in their own classification, with LFG being separate.
    If you honestly believe that flying is bad for the game, then you haven't fully considered the issue, and are just mindlessly repeating something someone else said.

    Pre-mades result in true groups, LFD/LFR only result in virtual groups. You can test that by queuing for a dungeon, entering the dungeon, then ask a guildie to invite you to a group, you can accept his group invite while still being in the dungeon group.
