My toon has recently got his Sell suit and went looking for others for VP. He went to a TTA Community VP run, but sadly there was nobody there, and VP HQ in all other districts were empty as well.

How do you find others for boss battles on TTR?

I use the IRC channel #ttrservices for boss battles. There's almost always a group for the VP or CFO, and occasionally, CJ groups form. Generally, it's very quick to get a group together.

There's a thread which contains this (http://www.toontownalley.com/forums/loopy-lane/430-ttr-irc.html#post48052) post, which is very helpful in explaining the commands. Good luck! (sun)

I haven't used #ttrservices yet, but I have heard of it and I totally recommend it. (sun)

Other than that, I usually just come and go on clan events here. I almost never go in a group of randomers - it's the troubles with lowlaffism (if that's even a thing) that keep you suspicious of them.

I usually do runs with CCG.

Runs with groups or IRC.

Mostly use #ttrservices. If it's like a maxing or something, I call my friends. :)

I haven't done a boss run yet, but I usually get a group by the lobby doors or inside of the lobby.

Usually with VPs, I wait in sbhq and people show up (most of the time), or I ask my friends. For CFOs and CJs, I use the irc, which is really great, and I definitely recommend it.

IRC probably made this game so much easier to work your toon. Getting groups through it really doesn't take that long and the IRC is jam packed with active players. Back on TTO it was either wait hours for a Toons United/CCG run or go with a laggy group in river.

I just use #ttrservices.

Most of the time I use #ttrservices

You can use #ttrservices on the irc or you can join the VP Club. We have runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. We also have SOS Shopping on Sundays. You can check them out underneath my signature. Good luck finding boss groups!

I either use grouptracker in the IRC, or I go with friends. Going with random people usually makes me uncomfortable. I feel more comfortable using the IRC because if someone tries to green us/is really bad I can rat them out in the IRC.

Usually there's a big group somewhere and I tag along, but if not I either use #ttrservices (like everybody else has said) or I will ask if anyone wants to do a VP in the TTA skype room and normally it takes about 5 minutes or more to get a group together. Best of luck to you with finding groups! Hopefully this helps. :victory2:

I use the IRC or ask friends. :P

Most of my boss runs are clan runs now since I'm maxed in sell and I'm not really working other suits. When I was working sell I used the IRC a lot (back before #ttrservices was established) for the group tracker, the TTA skype room, and honestly if you stand on the ramp in sbhq long enough in a busy district you'll get a group LOL. If you're ever struggling for a group, join #ttrservices; it makes finding groups really quick and really easy. I wish there was a similar feature incorporated into the game but for now it's the best we got and it's pretty good.

I use the IRC all the time! #ttrservices

11-16-2014, 01:01 PM
I use the irc or Toons United

11-16-2014, 01:31 PM
This is helpful, I was wondering what all this "IRC group" stuff was lol.
I guess i'll use that now.

I use the IRC or I go to The VP Club runs here.

I usually check this site (http://siggen.toontown-click.de/gevents/#mode=live) to see when the next clan runs are. I prefer clan runs over IRC groups. But if there is no clan runs I use the IRC (#ttrservices)

I normally just show up near the sellbot VP doors and most of the time there will already be a group there.
If there aren't groups for boss battles already there, I use #ttrservices.

I use the irc to get groups mostly.

11-17-2014, 03:06 PM
I unfortunately have yet to enter a site which allows me to easily find groups, so I mostly get randomly invited by friends. :frustrated:

The IRC is a great resource to have. It made finding people to run with for boss battles so much easier. I use that mostly or I run with friends.

Since i don't know how to use irc, so I just switch districts or wait for people to come or I join whenever someone asks me

I usually only run bosses with the CCG as I find the "Get on the elevator and stay on the elevator" loading technique to be so much easier and I love the mixture of big/small toons that show up. I don't mind the wait between getting bucks/notes/merits and runtimes as I'm not in a rush to max my suits. However, if a friend were to ask me if I was interested in a non-clan run, I'd be happy to join them.
