A word of advice to anyone else trying this: there are several things that must happen in exactly the right order if this is to work. After an hour of unsuccessful attempts, I've discovered the following:
- You can't enter group finder queue if you have conflicting phases.
- Resetting phases has a timeout, which is not shown anywhere but seems to be 10-15 minutes.

I also strongly suspect the following:
- The person furthest into the operation must be leader of the ops group
- That same person must also enter the instance first

End result: an hour of everyone's time wasted for exactly zero gain, and social trauma for me (I'm already hesitant to lead anything because something always goes wrong). The BH comms are not worth this. I just hope I didn't make it to anyone's ignore list.

The root cause for the hassle was the phase reset timeout. With the amount of trial and error going on, I just couldn't do enough resets before people got bored and left. Curse you Bioware for making this so difficult.
