I didn't play beta, so this is my first time using it. What kind of garbage is this? Is this the final product? It's like one window, with no kind of sorting, a rudimentary filter, and it displays barely any information about the group. How can Blizzard expect a multi-million player game to use such an archaic system. This looks like something from the Aol 2.0 / Windows 95 era. I sincerely hope this isn't what we are expected to use to find groups. It really is atrocious and Blizzard should feel shameful for not only disabling oQueue, but for releasing their own version which isn't even close to anything people wanted. Even the oQueue beta was leaps and bounds above this current group finder system

You really did a poor job Blizzard. No exaggeration.

When we design our default UI elements we follow some core design philosophies to ensure we have a consistent, approachable, unobtrusive, and easy-to-use interface. And, also like most default UI elements, the Premade Groups tool is fully moddable. We'd fully expect that, much like unit frames, raid frames, etc., that those who are looking for different layouts and additional functionality will turn to creating and using addons. Which is of course largely the point and focus of addon support--allowing people to gain additional customization and functionality beyond what the default UI might offer. Quite a few players prefer that additional functionality and customization, and that's awesome, that's what makes addons great. But it is early still, the patch hasn't been out long, and mods tend to spring from a personal or collective desire for specific functionality or customization. Maybe you can help inspire an addon author?

That said, we're still definitely looking for feedback on what changes or features people want to see made to the default UI in future updates, and any constructive feedback on layout improvements or changes are more than welcome. In this case the UI and Macro forum is probably the best place to help consolidate feedback.

Bashiok, I already have a constructive feedback thread running here:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/14882078357?page=1

If you would be so kind to move it to the UI & Macro forum from General Discussion, maybe the feedback will help you make it better.

Thank you.


Awesome! Thanks. Honestly I think General is probably okay too, unless tons of threads spring up and we need to consolidate.
