The Daily Grind: Should MMO dungeon grouping tools be standard features?

    
23

I’ve noticed that when the topic of LFG tools and dungeon finders for MMORPGs arises, people have… opinions. Strong, fervent, hearty opinions with chunky bits of vitriol floating around in them and a nice rosemary seasoning.

This topic came up again when I wrote about how LOTRO really lacks a good LFG tool. People are split right down the middle on this, with one camp really wishing the game had it and the other camp saying that, by gum, assembling a team in chat was good enough for their ancestors and it’s still good enough for them today.

What do you think about this? Should MMO dungeon grouping tools, like a LFG queuing system, be made a standard feature in these games? Are we already there, in fact?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
