"Recently, we hosted an AMA on Reddit about Combat and PvP, where it was revealed that we'd have a Group Finder that worked solely cross-server. As any veteran MMO player might expect, this reveal caused no small amount of hubbub across the entire fansite community. The conversations were extremely constructive, polite, and thoughtful, which served as true inspiration for us to take your thoughts and concerns to a continued the conversation amongst the development team. As we’ve said in the past, the dev team's primary goal is to remove barriers to entry for both social connections and experiencing new content. In tandem with those efforts, our goal as a Community team is to remove barriers to creating micro-communities that form in games, whether that's an individual's reputation or a server's identity as a whole."

"So after some brainstorming, we believe we've come up with the appropriate solution: At launch, our Group Finder will include a checkbox to allow you to only group with players from your own server. Players who are willing to submit to a longer wait using Group Finder will be placed with people from their own servers when looking to tackle Dungeons, Adventures, and unrated Battlegrounds. (Ranked Arenas, Battlegrounds, and Warplots will still only be available cross-server, to allow for proper rating-based matchmaking.)"

"We think this solution strikes the proper balance between our needs and the players' needs, and the usual refrain of allowing players to play the way they want to play factored in heavily into this decision. But even more so, this is an example of the kind of interaction we will continue to build on."

 

I think this was a great move on their part.  Great MOVE!

    So, actually they announced having a Dungeon Finder (since it's cross-server), not only Group finder?

    It would be a shame if it looks like WoW dungeon finder with instant teleports to dungeons. IMHO it was a serious immersion killer.

    well if its not an instant teleport then what u want people to wait for everyone to get there? wait 20 min to get into a dungeon then wait another 20 for everyone to get there? I can see it now, "what the hell is taking u so long to get here?" then they get kicked and have to find another player. no thx. it doesn't kill immersion. players do

    I think thats exactly how it is going to work. The alternative is to have something like the meeting stones.

    When they have every feature of your run to the mill themepark MMO why not include dungeon or group finder too? as far as immersion goes it is just a matter of convenience. Different things break immersion for different people.
