Did any of them enroll in that specific dungeon, or just that tier of random dungeons, or both? Here's some addition information about how the replacement functionality of the LFG tool works; When the player leaves an LFG formed group the leader (or the leader's replacement, if the leader left) should get a yes/no pop-up asking them "Looking For Group: Find a replacement party member?" This will then enroll the leader's group as a whole into the LFG system looking to complete that specific instance. The requirements for having this pop-up invite happen are; a) The original group in the instance must have been formed for an LFG dungeon. b) The leader of the group has to be in the dungeon instance when the player leaves the group. c) The instance must not yet be completed. d) The replacement has to be allowed in the current dungeon instance (right level range, gear check) e) The replacement has to be a good fit for the original group in the dungeon; which means that not only could a healer be found to replace a healer... but the system might also find another player if it believes players in the original group could be shifted around in roles to make room for the new player. Looking through the code we believe we found a bug which may explain the situation you were experiencing; Replacement players who only queues for a random tier dungeon (and not specific ones) will not be paired with a group in a specific non-random instance because the code believes it wouldn't be able to give the replacement their loot bag upon completion.
