    Grouping strings are cool - could help with matching players and expectations

    No. It looks like a category you can pick for your group.

    GROUP_FINDER_PVE_PLAYSTYLE2 - Completion
    GROUP_FINDER_PVE_PLAYSTYLE3 - Beat Timer

    Is my goal to just beat this mythic plus key? Then pick "Completion".

    Is my goal to beat the timer on this mythic plus key? Then pick "Beat Timer".

    Don't join a group under "Completion" and then whine that you didn't beat the timer.

    everyone (even noobs) will join the quick clear, and no one will join the learning/progression ones as they will wipe incessantly

    To be fair, anything under an 11 is basically a faceroll. The only time I see the "completion" button being used is for slightly undergeared people with a 15 key that just want to get it done for the week and dont care if they time or not.

    Well but if you join/create a quick clear you can't moan if you wipe 2 times and someone leaves
