I enjoyed it once. Doing it for the 100th time isn't something I'd call enjoyment.

I skip when everyone does it, but I don't mind watching the story. hell I still don't even mind the esseles/black talon story much. (though I'd say it's hard to find anyone who's never done it)



what I'd do if I wanted to see the story, tell people that you want to see it right away - or if they're ******es just not mention it at all and pretend it's not you who's not skipping


OR roll a tank with your first char. if people don't like it... let them have fun finding someone to replace you
I agree, I will spacebar if asked. I will watch story if others want to

I prefer to skip most of them sometimes, but I have had plenty of times a guy said "First time" to which I said "If you wanna watch the convos just toss me a heads up so I am not sitting at Waiting for players....." I just hate seeing a guy stand still so I ask politely for the heads up.

Also any time I ask for someone to spacebar I say "Can you Spacebar Please" not "Spacebar Now Nubs!" Minor thing I know but makes a big difference.

If its a hard mode flashpoint then I'm sorry to say that it is inconsiderate to expect people to watch all the dialogue. You're there for coms and gear, its a level 50 version of a lower level flashpoint. Its for this reason I have always advocated on hardmode, flashpoints should not have cut-scenes.

If it's a story-mode flashpoint then I take the complete opposite view. If you are seriously there for gear (?) or experience (?) and you're not interested or respectful enough to those who are in the storyline and dialogue scenes, then you're an idiot and should be flamed for insisting that people space-bar the best content this game has to offer.

If you want to power-level, please don't pug or join group finder storymode flashpoints. Do it with your friends.

100% this. If you're in a story mode FP, and you've seen it 100 times, ask the others in your group politely if they will space bar. But honestly, if you just want to space bar through story mode FPs, you probably should take a break from playing them in the first place.

He won't spacebar because he doesn't want to, not because nobody told him to do it.
He should not want to with his guildies, not on my time.

A HM flashpoint is done 100 times already, not to be fun anymore. Everybody is there for comms/gear/weekly/daily, not for fun. Fun is when you do it the first time in story mode.

This is not about how a rebel one player might be and how she/he is more right than the other 3. If spacebar is asked, you WILL use it, or we find another that will. Don`t like it? Lose the attitude.

Also, could we please kill the final boss in Taral 5? Not killing the boss is the very definition of being on a gear hampster wheel. Some of us actually are trying to play the game not run up a hampster wheel.

And yes, my gear is far beyond needing black hole comms.
I'm going to keep telling people to press space bar.

that is why when ppl don't space bar i allways ask them if they are space baring if not let me know so i can watch the story cause idk if they are or just lagging or something else and i figure if they aren't gonna space abr might as well watch the story.

If you want to watch cinematics, do the FP with people you know who don't mind or do it in story mode and let the rest of the group know ahead of time so everyone is cool with it. Otherwise, you are wasting people's time and they are perfectly justified in calling you vile names.
