    If you want LFG you can play a game where LFG is introduced for like 10 years - it's called RETAIL. In Classic there is no LFG and never will be, so either you adapt to Classic rules or go back to your LFG game which Retail is. That simple.

    Here is what you do to find a tank within 5 minutes:

    1. Type in chat /who warrior xx-xx (xx = level range for the dungeon)
    1a. You can also do this nifty trick on druids and paladins (for Alliance) if you can't find a warrior representative, although that is unlikely giving the extreme popularity of Classic at this moment.

    2. Right click on any of the warriors currently not in a dungeon zone, for example Crossroads, Orgrimmar etc. and select whisper.

    3. Type in a polite message such as: "Hey, I am sorry to disturb you but would you be interested in tanking dungeon xy (xy = name of dungeon), we have trouble finding a tank. "

    4. Now highlight the underlined message "Hey, I am sorry to disturb you but would you be interested in tanking dungeon xy (xy = name of dungeon), we have trouble finding a tank. " and copy it with CTRL+C, do the same for other warriors by pasting the message with CTRL+V, I suggest 4-5 whispers per attempt to find a tank so you don't get overwhelmed with whispers.

    5. Enjoy your new tank!

    P.S.: You can copy my example message if you have trouble formulating a similar one, it has 100% success rate!

    Here is a thought for you, the person that can’t make friends in retail will not become some social bunny in classic. The person doesn’t change because the platform does. If that person is a dick or anti social, it won’t change in classic. Back in vanilla, people were still dicks, where do you think all the ninja looter memes came from?
    how can you be anti social on a literal video game?

    "Oh no, I'm too social inept, I can't type in chat because I'm so introvert. I can't write 'thank you' or 'pls invite me for X' bc I'm very shy and I begin to s-s-s-s-tut-t-t-ter in-n-n c-c-hat"

    Right. It's a VERY bad idea.

    Changes or no changes?

    Vanilla had an lfg addon

    I wouldn't mind a simple interface where people can sign up for dungeons / group quests or just questing. But nothing automated, if you look for a group to Deadmines, you'll have to whisper and talk to those who also signed up for it.

    Kind of like moving the LFG /1 /2 and World chat to a simple interface instead.

    Join #world
    LFM 1 dps and 1 heal for "insert dungeon here"
    invite classes you want
    profit

    Every group takes around 5 minutes to make. Even als solo dps at the moment.

    Talk to people, play good and do your job. You will find friends and even a guild in no time and don't have to look so much for random people in worldchat anymore. Thats how I did it.

    I speak from my own personal experience. I have started playing WoW mid TBC and the experience was horrible even at high pop realm.
    The point is, it was WAY WAY harder and time consuming to find lowbies, because everyone was level 70 and raiding, this will eventually happen in classic.

    At launch, WoW Classic experience will be really easy for you, because everyone is levelling and everyone will be willing to party up without wasting time to complete the content. Fast-forward 1 year later, this will be waay harder for new players, so and LFG system that can be used DURING LEVELING ONLY, is not a bad idea 1 year later from now.

    Little hypocrisy within the WoW Classic community ; "Disable LFG, but allow Quest helper" which these are on the same tier. They both help you with levelling.
    The idea to use a LFG tool for lvling later on when people are mostly raiding or doing lvl 60 content makes a lot of sense. But I would limit it even more. Make it a board in the city where you can add a LFG/LFM post. People can look it up and join and when the grp has reached the right amount of people it gets removed.

    Why this way? Because it means you can't just replace someone via a tool mid instance because you don't like him or think he is too bad. That is part of WOW and getting through it. Learn th guy how to play, overperform even more, try different strats or do it the long way, kick him and start using the chat till someone gets back into the city to post a new LFM for a replacement.

    I think a LFG/LFM board in each major city would be fine. It keeps the feeling of classic but allows others to find players without having to wait in the city all the time. You can't make a post from outside of the city and you can't change one from far away (except deleting).

    This. Simple as that. Or then again... don't play Classic if you're not willing to do those things and socialize?

    But it does. You cannot generalize based on your own specific behavior.

    In classic people are forced to make relations to friends and guild members if the want to avoid spamming trade chat. This is great!
    So you can only make “friends” because people are forced to talk to you? Take your own advice, You cannot generalize based on your own specific behavior.

    Not sure what you are trying to say, but anti social is more than just that, I hope you know this. Toxicity is a form of anti social behaviour for example. You are actually a perfect example of anti social behaviour, you contributed nothing but purely to “troll”.

    since when toxicity is a form of anti social? Toxicity is literally the oposite of anti-social. You're socializing with others, wether you like what they're saying or not. being quiet because you're shy is anti social bc you're not engaging with others. I'll repeat, how can you be like this on a virtual game when you're just 1 more anonimous pixel in the internet?

    Toxicity is not anti social? Then an ASBO must be named incorrectly

    I didn't mention myself in any of my posts. You did.

    Classic need to be as inconvenient for anti-social players as possible. Not having LFG available is really annoying for anti-social players which is great!
