With nerf to Denova SM in 1.4 (to make it easier to pug groups to clear it) they might consider adding it in the future. But that's it.

Awesome. I'd really appreciate if they did that.

Agreed, with the changes to SM EC - it's time it was added to the group finder.

I think this, but seperate it from KP and EV. Similar to how LI is seperated from other HMs. EC is still more challenging than KP or EV so seperating it would make more sense to make sure everyone who wants to do it is prepared to go in and not just getting a random pop.

I asked Jesse Sky (Lead Flashpoints and Operations Designer) about when players can expect to see Terror from Beyond and Explosive Conflict in the Group Finder. He said it's definitely something we're planning to do, but had some information about why they aren't in quite yet:

Story Mode Explosive Conflict and Terror from Beyond are balanced for players in Columi gear, but we currently have no way to enforce or communicate the recommended power level. This could cause frustration for players who are undergeared, and would bog down the process of getting into the content, which is contrary to the purpose of the tool. Introducing either Op into the Group Finder would also mean rotating out Eternity Vault and Karagga's Palace, so we want to make sure the timing and the rewards are right before we do this.

You have no idea how awesome this is for those of us who aren't hard core raiders. Please thank all of the appropriate people for me!

So do what was done with HM's and have Tiers for the Ops in GF. Seriously. Add a tooltip. This isn't rocket science.

Why?
I do not understand why it would have to be an 'either/or' scenario.
Why can't there be tiers of raids in the group finder, like there's tiers of HM FP's?

Tier 1:
SM KP/EV
Tier 2:
SM EC/TFB

By your own logic, HM LI is tuned for players at columi(+) level, too, but that isn't clearly marked anywhere in game, either.
I feel i should be able to queue for EC/TFB story if i think my gear is ready for it, but not at the expense of being able to queue for EV/KP story.
