You know you can still skip through the cutscenes if you want. It just means you stare at dialog choice screen though waiting for everyone. I for one don't mind waiting for someone that enjoys the story. It is after all the highlight of the game.

Sorry but what? why would you substitute actual in-game experience under your control, for watching someone else do it, without any choice on your end just because you are taking up a few extra minutes in someone's obviously busy online gaming schedule?

People who have done it 1000 times are going to spacebar. People who haven't probably won't.

It's not like someone who doesn't want to spacebar is going to go "oh yeah, I can spacebar, thanks for teliing me!"

Honestly I always spacebar but I'm super tempted to purposely not spacebar whenever people start getting pissy over it.

What they need is to create a speed run option that players can select at the beginning. At least at that point it's decided from the beginning and you don't have to fight about it every time a conversation comes up.

I can understand watching the dialogue on the way to level 50, even through some of the level 50 instances. However, the one thing I hate is when we are in an instance that a level 50 can easily solo and people insist on watching the dialogue. If you REALLY want to watch the dialogue in places like Esseless, Black Talon, Maelstrom, Foundry, etc. then go solo the place on normal and RP your heart out.

Not neccessarily, sometimes they've zoned out or whatever, and "spacebar" is a reminder they're with other people.

I occasionally don't spacebar through conversations after reading them when doing solo play if there's something interesting on T.V. Somebody saying spacebar reminds me that, oops, yeah, I'm not the only one here.

Now THAT is a good and fair point, I concur.

If it is my first time though, I'll watch the cutscenes. Requests to skip it are ignored.

If I have already watched it, I'll ask beforehand if people are going to be watching the cutscenes. If they are, I'll just watch it again, otherwise I'll spacebar through it. I find it 10x more boring to spacebar through the conversations only to wait for someone to finish watching it.

You get to press your spacebar. You don't get to press anyone else's. Learn patience. We are about to pick up hundreds of thousands of players who have never seen any of this before.

I don't mind people watching Black Talon / Esseles when there level 10, since there's a chance that there new and haven't seen it yet..... But when there 50 and your doing Hard Mode Talon / Esseles then yes I think it should be mandatory that you space bar....

Personally I wish Bioware would remove Black Talon / Esseles from the 50 Hard Mode list.... there's got to be a better FP to take it's place with less conversations....

I think it's amusing that people are playing the instances so many times that they get sick of the cutscenes. You don't have to do flashpoints over and over and over again, you know. If you have somehow played all the content in the game, you might just want to play something else. It may surprise you to learn that there are lots of other games out there!
