you know these flashpoints wouldn't be so bad, if people would actually utilize cc.
You don't need CCs, you just need people to not be dumb. Like the pull with the 2 gold droids early in Hammer Station. I was tanking this on my guardian, and just before the pull I see the healer say "I'll CC shield". At which point I lept to shield, hit saber reflect, built up some more AoE threat, and used my AoE taunt when it seemed appropriate along with another defensive CD. Everything died, my health never dropped below 60%, and nothing ever hit either DPS or the healer.
I responded in chat "not necessary ;-)"
