I know that it's harder, that's why I suggested to put in an easier version of it.
I disagree with this strongly.
Difficult content should only be doable by skilled players in good coordination with one another.
Remember that there are very good players who are in guilds and work together and can complete HM Ops.
Having difficult content that you can't pug encourages you to get a group of like-minded people.
Note: This opinion coming from someone who only started TOR for the single-player content until he found out how fun it was to get a guild and do end-game content with them.
