Blizzard has updated with a preview of their <A HREF="http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/burningcrusade/townhall/lookingforgroup.html">new Looking for Group interface</a>. It looks quite impressive.

I feel like someone told me that i had a chance to have a nice political chat with Carl Marx!

(And by that i mean that it feels like i had 2 christmasses this year)

Sorry for double posts but this marks it, this was the final straw that broke the Camels back.

Im coming back to WoW when BC hits the shelves.

I haven't even used it yet, but I've looked it over and definately think it's one of the best things of tBC. It's so simple it hurts (hurts so good!). IMO, the quest option is great for those elite quests when you can't seem to find help. ^^/

Just so everyone knows, even with the new LFG system, they are not removing Meeting Stones.

Instead, Meeting Stones will act like Warlock Portal, allowing two players to click the Meeting Stone and summon a party member from anywhere in the world.

I just learned this on the WoW boards ten minutes ago.

Ya, I thought it was a very inventive way of using meeting stones, now that they will not be used as a LFG tool.

Its great because it lowers downtime when that one punk was all the way on the other side of the world while the rest wait near the entrance, and don't have a warlock, or have one somehow out of shards.

I bet you could get newb characters into high end zones easily that way :D Or at least use it as a shortcut gryphon (if you have a buddy in the area).

You'd need two buddies. :P

Using meeting stones like that is an awesome idea... though it kinda goes against Pardo's idea that the world should feel real and big. Though I guess it's not that much of a time-saver.

Wonder how this will work for Raids...

hmm... just as i noticed more and more players are finally using the very excellent group forming "call to arms" mod, blizzard finallly takes note.

odd, seems every mod is getting incorporated into the game. i guess that's a good thing, but it kinda' makes you wonder why there had to be mods in the first place?

not like i'm complaining, i'm liking more and more what TBC is adding to the game. it makes me wonder if any future expansions could ever add so much!

Wow, LFG system *and* they will make Meeting Stones useful?

Blizzard's smart, they realize that these mods become popular for a reason. If it isn't considered ridiculously overpowered (decursive), they find ways to add it into the natural interface.

Also, you've got to remember that they take note of who created/did the upkeep for these mods. Who ever created Call to Arms will likely already be known to the devs (hell they may become a future dev for all we know.)

Propably a mod that does everything this new Interfirence does expect not everybody can use it.

It was a mod that looked in chat for LFG/LFM and then tagged who ever spoke it, or something to that effect.

I hate mods. I don't really care.
