There are some really piss poor functions of the LFG tool, as well. For one thing, it limits you to three instances. Now I don't know how 70 will end up looking, but I can remember a time when I was 60 that there were at least 5-6 instances I was interested in running (the three wings of Dire Maul alone would have filled up the tool).It also puts some strange restrictions on certain instances - for example, you can't list yourself for UBRS unless you have completed LBRS. Obviously, that's no longer an issue. But as long as a character is in the level range and can physically enter an instance, why isn't it there?There also needs to be a "completion" option. How many times have you lost a person mid-instance? Constant DCs, parental booting, or just tossing one jerk out of the group for being, well, a jerk. There are plenty of times I've wanted to look for a replacement before tossing a problem child from my group - the LFG tool makes that nearly impossible. There are other times I just need a fifth person for the last boss, but that is difficult to communicate via the tool, and a lot of people who otherwise have the 30 minutes to spare and would like to be in on the boss drop wouldn't even have flagged in the first place.Some people say the LFG tool will never work. I disagree. LFG could be a good tool, it just isn't right now. More control, more options, and the ability to fine tune your search and your offer are what's needed here.
