There has always been some kind of mobskipping in either small or large scale in flashpoints but the latest trend is simply wrong.
It seems that teams doing flashpoints skip some of the bosses and have no respect for the ones that are signing up to get better gear.
Please respect the players that join flashpoints with groupfinder to gear up, it is enough to wait for ages for them to pop.
Alternatively Bioware could make the flashpoint not complete unless all bosses are dead (the way it should be)
Is it fair to ignore players in the team that needs gear and steamroll through the flashpoint not listening at all?
Some of those mobs and bosses that you want to defeat for gear(some of which isnt all that great, imo) are capable of wiping the entire team. Depending on the gear and experience makeup of the team, skipping some of the content is not necessarily a bad idea.
