mythical.6315 Posted July 14, 2022 Share Posted July 14, 2022 Here are the issues with a group finder that I can think of off the top of my head: Players have used the LFG for almost 9 years and it's unlikely to get the majority of them to use a new system. A group finder would just split the player base. There's a cost with creating and implementing a system like this. The group finder would have to send you directly into the instanced content that was queued for. There's a cost with running a system like this. From what I recall, FF14 has servers dedicated to this function. While it wouldn't be as extensive for GW2, it wouldn't be cheap either. This would not work for raids due to roles which cannot be clearly defined with a group finder. It'll be hit or miss whether it'll work for strikes and fractals. It wouldn't work well for dungeons if you're looking for a specific path as this is determined within the dungeon itself. We already have a fairly decent system with the existing LFG. Is it perfect? Not even close. It's as simple as creating a LFG stating that all are welcome. It certainly beats sitting around staring at the screen while waiting for someone else to magically create a LFG for you. There are some improvements that can be made to the UI itself. I'm kind of partial to the way FF14 does theirs. You have content categories and the listings themselves which include the specific content within those categories that you're trying to do. There could also be ways to filter who can join although I'm sure there will be those who would object to this feature despite them still going to occur regardless. 2 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
