View Full Version : Ugh, that "Leader: Public Group" message

Enter a dungeon with public groups on, and some message appears right in front of your face titled "Leader:Public Group" followed by a bunch of jibber jabber. And then when you smash a crate (or even worse, attack a monster) you get *another* message, something about a timer. That monster you're trying to target is now hidden behind a wall of irrelevant text. Argh!

Please tell me there is a way to make those messages go away and never come back. Please?

It could of been worse and been a pop up box that messes with your look.

I want people to join me in my adventuring, though.

it's truly annoying and it really should be closable

Does a private group show to everyone, or is it hidden?

That's a partial solution. It can be difficult if I want to complete a particular quest.

I'd like to make the message go away without having to alter the way I play the game. Do you know of any way to do that?

"Private" groups show up on the LFM listing. "Private" really just means the kind of normal LFM groups that we've had for years. These weird new "Public" ones are not particularly useful, are buggy as all get out, have horrible default level ranges, and, as you pointed out, are filled with annoying messages.

The only time I use them is for wilderness areas, because that's the only way to get the name of the wilderness to show as the quest selection. For actual quests, real, old-style, normal "Private" LFMs are the way to go.

I had some public groups up when it just came out, since I tend to take the first 5 who apply anyway. After dealing with those messages though, I pretty quickly just put up a private LFM.

It's a great idea, and I like it in concept, it just is really, really annoying to see all that text twice in a quest.

What's an LFM? Is that just "LFG" on the quest menu?

I notice that when I instance a dungeon I'm more likely to get other adventurers when I make the group public rather than private. Am I doing something wrong, then?
