Tank - LFD is working perfectly well. My que time is nonexistent.
1.) Ques as tank for fast que
2.) Ques as tank because they enjoy the role
Healer - LFD is working good enough for me. Que time is 5-10 minutes.

DPS - LFD is working for me. Que time is 40 minutes to get in.

In all examples lfd is working. Now lets look at what that means.
LFD - A system that selects players to form a party from all servers in the battlegroup, so there need not be a full group of players on one specific realm.
Now a party consists of 3 dps, 1 healer and 1 tank. If any particular role has a plethora of players queing then you will run into wait times. LFD works off of the first come first served bases.
What possible solutions are there to quicken anyone's que time, other then having more players playing certain roles.
Well you could redo battlegroups....not sure how viable this is...and whether or not it would actually solve anything. In the end most likely the end result would be the same. Even if at the beginning it did make things "seem" better.
Bribe people to play certain roles. Nothing makes people happier to do something then money...or in this case rewards. Although this could/would cause more drama. If person x is getting something and person z isn't.....z could very well get upset...."i'm paying to play, blah blah...wheres my incentive, blah blah)
If tanks were rewarded...it couldn't be with points (complaints tanks get gear to easy). Gold?? This could lead to gold farming instances....sigh.. again this will not really make things better as the issues this would cause would have to be addressed.
Have it so the first time you Que for an instance you are moved up to the front of the Que...... And only once.
Now problems with this are. If you have already done an instance, bam you are constantly being moved back.
If you get booted/dc from an instance, you reque and are now last...and may continue to be moved back for awhile.
In the end the LFD serves it purpose perfectly. Maybe I believe this to be true because I came from a game without such a nifty tool. And I don't mind the first come first served set up. I really like this tool. And I am grateful to have its use. My dps alts appreciate it too.
Thank you blizzard
