5) Why are you even doing HM's FP??? Between the free tionese and free MK-2 recruit you can run a SM OPS, simple fast way to get gear.
6) ......and after you have run a few story mode ops and ran SM astation and Sm denova you have gotten rakata or better, then you run HM's for coms......Then the people you were just complaining about, you yourself just became one of them
Bioware really should expand the group finder to cater for better geared players. Currently it's designed for fresh 50s to do entry-level endgame content, so yes, they're right to run HM FPs in their Tionese gear. The decision to give BH comms as reward from the same HM FPs was incredibly stupid, as it entices the geared 50s to queue as well. When these two types of people are put in the same group, it creates friction and results in this kind of threads on the forums.

There was some kind of message from the developers that they'd like to add the harder operations to the group finder, but are currently unable to do it because there's no indication that they need more than entry-level gear. If and when this gets implemented, I suggest a nightmare mode is added to flashpoints and the BH comm rewards moved to it. HM FPs can then give columi comms, with a possible exception of Lost Island, which is tier 2.
