LFG channel is not so different from a world channel as it stands now. You just have to say you're looking for something to join it.Restricting LFG to cities is going to piss off a lot of people including me.Can't count the number of times I got a group for something while I was busy questing out in the world.

Yes, it is going to piss me off too. Why should I be stuck in a city to use LFG? Why can't I be out mining or doing achievements, or something else, and still watch for something to come up of interest to any of my many characters? And how about those times when you're just getting ready to start, say, h CoS and a dps has to drop? Now we won't be able to just hop in LFG, and quickly find someone, we'll have to have someone port to use LFG.Very lame idea blizz.

I'm sure it'll annoy someone. Someone is always crying about something.I viewed it as two separate things. LFG tool will allow you to put yourself in and go about your business.LFG City Channel will be for more spur of the moment things. "I wasn't planning on running that, but I'd like to go."It would be nice to have a World Wide LFG Channel for that spur of the moment. It just might be a little redundant. There could be coding issues involved.

i think it's absolute crap that they took away our worldwide LFG to begin with. sure, you can join the new LFG anywhere, but the problem is that if what you want isn't on the list and you pick some random thing then you have to deal with the potential of random whispers from people asking you to go do the thing you're in LFG for, some of whom are less than pleasant when they find out you're not actually looking for the same thing as them. i remember the original LFG as worldwide barrens chat, but it still served it's purpose as well as functioning as a worldwide trade channel. if you didn't want to be in it you could just click it off. i can't understand why blizzard does things like this, giving us an option, then taking that option away because people are too lazy to actually do anything other than complain. much akin to the ban on profanity. there is a profanity filter. if you don't want profanity or don't want you children seeing profanity you turn it on. yet, despite this option people are still penalized for adult language (and if you want to reply about how the EULA prohibits it, then go stick the EULA up your ass). blizz just needs to stop caring quite as much about every minor complaint from people that are too lazy to click a box or type a few words to stop whatever it is that bothers them and would rather whine to somebody instead. it's not like they have eliminated stupidity from wow or from the chat channels, SO JUST GIVE US BACK WORLDWIDE LFG FFS.

i think the solution would be a vote-kick system similar to what they are doing with the new pug system. right click someone's name on a channel and right under report spam is vote-kick. if enough people click it, say 10, then you are kicked from the channel and not allowed back on for 15 minutes.so if someone goes on the channel using it for anything other than its intended purpose (i'm looking at you mr anal linking which is not funny btw) a few people who are trying to find a group can kick them off with ease. do us all a favor and put this feature on trade chat too.

And how, then, would an 80 PUG the Headless Horseman if they weren't in line for something else? I usually signed up under Zone for a Wintergrasp group, if you're wondering. And the summoning stone outside the Monestary--when will that be usable by higher-level folks?It's not like they offered a quest every day for the Monestary that only higher-level characters could plug into the LFG system.
