WoW Classic’s upcoming LFG tool boasts a big improvement

    
14

While the modern version of World of Warcraft’s looking for group tool really got going in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, many newer players might not know that The Burning Crusade had an earlier — and less robust — LFG system. And it’s this system that’s coming to WoW Classic later this year, albeit with a big improvement over the original.

While this version of the LFG tool won’t automatically queue players for dungeons, it will let them register for up to three activities (dungeons, raids, arena, etc.) of their choosing. Basically, it’s a way to organize groups outside of shouting into the void of the LFG channel.

So what’s the big change this time around? Unlike the original version, WoW Classic’s LFG tool will allow players to queue up as parties as well as solo. This will be a good way to help partially formed groups to fill out their roster and get to adventuring.

“In Overlords of Outland, the classic Looking for Group interface received some behind the scenes improvements. While we’ve kept the look and feel you’re familiar with, these improvements should make it even better than you remember with more activities available, group listings, and more,” Blizzard said.

Make it 2004 and release WoW for the first time. That’s the only way to make it better.

If I ever go back to WoW, I’d want a Classic Plus option. Classic, but with LFG/LFR, Transmog, Achievements, and account-wide collections (all like current retail).

But if it’s a classic / BC / etc. realm, your transmog options are going to be pretty limited anyway, so if you’re able to transmog to your Tier 0.5 dungeon set, it still shows you earned it.

I just hate walking around like I just got out of clown school.

Entirely disagree. This is one of those arguments that work more for the people who didn’t achieve anything worth of note, than the people who did. Transmog gives you the opportunity to keep your earned gear as a visual after you upgraded it. The only people who “lose sight of pride” are those who doesn’t have it.

It’s a MMO, and you should be allowed to vest your character the way you want it.

Not really going to help with how brutal the player retention of TBC Classic has been thus far.

Whoa whoa whoa! Isn’t this the feature that singlehandedly destroyed any and all social interaction in any game that ever had it? Oh well, guess Classic is about to die. Hope you guys enjoyed it while it lasted.

No, cross-realm stuff is generally considered to be that feature (at least when combined with LFG). Doesn’t seem like that’s the case here; sounds like it’s still grouping all within one realm.

Pretty sure it was the dungeon finder and the instant teleport to dungeon feature once the group was auto formed.

A tool like this still requires going to the dungeon, as well as people to actually select who is assigned to the group. It just lists the choices nicely for them, rather than making them have to watch chat.

Part of me would be interested in a version of WoW up to Wrath of the lich king with more of these modern day quality of life changes but as i can no longer give this company the benefit of the doubt both in game quality and game design intend part of me really believes;

Guess this is will be great for all the boosts they can indirectly sell when they introduce the WoW token system on classic servers…. fool me once…

It’s along way from the days I had to bark “Small pink Gnome Mage LFG for Shattered Halls!” repeatedly in LFG chat before I got an invite…

…not that I really care about them rewriting my experience TBC anymore. /shrug

Could be worse. Play a druid and get constant tells asking you to tank or heal, then get cussed out for speccing balance by someone you didn’t want to group with anyway.
