View Full Version : Anonymous in the LFM - entirely backwards.

Now that they 'fixed' the LFM page so we can see what types of characters are in the LFM group already, they need to fix how players who are anonymous show in the LFM.

The way it is now, if you are anonymous, your NAME shows up in the LFM page. How is that anonymous?
But, the information that other players need, namely your race, class, and level, is not shown.

This is exactly opposite to the way it needs to be.

If you are anonymous, your name SHOULD NOT appear in the LFM page, but you race, class, and level should so that people can judge if they will fit into the group or not.

It is annoying to join a group to find out you will only get half xp because the anonymous person's level is not visible and they were 4 levels higher than you.

Also, many people will not join a group if there is not a cleric visible in the group (especially on harder quests) because they are anonymous , and ironically, it is usually the cleric who is anonymous in the first place!

Please fix this Turbine.

It is not effective to hide if you are online or not by showing your name. Nor is it effective to hide race, class, and level from those who need to know what they are getting into.
