"If you are looking for a group to go to an instance, make sure you click off the Auto-Join option. This will guarantee that you have control over the groups you will join or the classes that join your group."The devs must wonder where it all went wrong when they read comments like this. This alone is enough to show how hopelessly flawed the LFG system is. Advocates of the system often say "turn of auto-join" and don't seem to realise how they are pointing out a flaw in the central cog of the system.What do people want to do when they group? Type "LFM" or "LFG" into a channel. How do you negate the need for a channel? You have a tool that carries out that function for you, that function is auto-join which should seamlessly send out LFM and LFG messages in the background, in fact it does do this, the flaw is that such a function doesn't balance well. When the central cog of a system doesn't work as intended it's time to go back to the drawing board.Bring back a temporary global channel, people can then use both flawed options and happily welcome the forthcoming and top secret new and improved super LFG system but trying to get people to use a system that can't perform it's core function will never convince the masses.
