What if you were 6 friends?

You can't have companions out during a flashpoint fi you have a full group. Companions count as players in flashpoints, so you can have 2 players with 2 companions for your 4, or 4 players. Haven't tried 3 players with one companion out.

I would think that with the ratio of dps to healers/tanks that it would have been beneficial to make 6 person groups, just so that there would be less demand for tank/healer

Why isn't this game made specifically FOR ME??!
Size matters not!

The first rule about Jar Jar is we don't talk about Jar Jar.

Me and 4 other friends came from Wow and rift. We played those games together as a friends only group. We did all instances and dungeons in a group.

Now we went over to Swtor and now one of us is borked and have to sit out and wait.
This is a terrible idea.

Same can be said for Operations really.
8 and 16. Guilds transfering over need to bench good players
No No and just No. the smaller the better. Id be happy if there was an option to 2man everything! 4man are perfect size
I find your lack of faith disturbing...

SO. Dark Age of Camelot had a group cap of 8. Raid cap of infinity. Here's a simple solution.....recruit a couple more people and start another group. Nuff said.

I would like larger parties myself. Given that this game seems to favor off-tanks and so far I've been doing a lot of "general purpose" stuff on my Sorcerer, it would make sense to have a larger party. But as it is currently, it fits perfectly with the 4 base classes, which is what I think they were aiming for.

Regardless, it's not Bioware's fault that you're playing with 4 friends. SWTOR was not specifically made so you could run through the game with your 5 man group from WoW.

Groups of 4 is fine. It makes it easier to find groups and you don't really feel like you're losing anything for not having an extra person, I'm very sorry that BioWare couldn't take time out of their development schedule to remaster the entire game for you and your 4 friends, how terrible of them!

I happen to like only having 4 players for group content. I played EQ2 and LOTRO which each took 6 players to fill a full group. Only needing 4 makes it much faster and easier. My husband and I always play as a duo, so this only leaves us having to find 2 people to fill a group instead of 4. Love it!! <3 <3 <3
