Add Challenge Mode entry for Fractals in LFG

In the LFG tool, please consider adding a line to the four lines under "Fractals of the Mists". The new one should be below Master Scales 76-100, and called something like "Challenge Mode".

    Why when they can just put it in the LFG description?

    Exactly.
    @Daddicus.6128 what problem are you hoping to address by adding yet another entry?

    Because there are too many entries in the T4 window.

    I didn't know about -cm in search, so that would help. But, it's still a good idea.

    It is not tho since its not needed now when you know about the -cm or cm command.
    If anyone else ask people who know about it will ofcourse tell them right?

    You are assuming that

    • Everybody types cm correctly, and
    • Nobody types any other string incorrectly (so that the letters cm appear), and
    • There are no words, or other abbreviations (that might be used), with the string "cm" inside them.

    You only see CM for Tier 4 fractals so it’s kind of pointless to give them their own category. That’s like requesting a SW section because you don’t like seeing posts for RIBA farms.

  • You'll have to show me a screenshot of a list of T4 LFG so long that one can't reasonably manually inspect them to find non-challenge mode groups. And that a signficiant number of entries do not use some variation of /cm in the message. And that this happens so often that it is a problem for more than a handful of people.

    Any time I've looked, there are a handful of entries, nearly all of which get filled within minutes, and thus disappear quickly enough.

    Every day it's more than a page. Not always, but I would estimate 3/4 of the time it's more than a screen. Only tier 4, though. The other tiers are usually quite short (even when they include a CM entry).

    But, using -cm works most of the time to get it to one screen, when I remember to do it. Yesterday, one person spelled out "Challenge Mode", but that was easy to mentally ignore. I also wasn't paying attention once, and wound up in a CM one by mistake.

    Even if there's more than "one page" why does it matter to have it on one screen? That makes absolutely no sense unless people have some kind of ocd.
    Additionally lfgs are listed via group strength 4>3>2>1 player(s). Every refresh will adjust the list from 4 player down to 1 player groups.
