I've seen this happen quite a bit. Not one of those votes has gone through. Funny how that works.

I think the nub of this matter is the vocality of someone saying "FFS spacebar!" over and over in FPs, as if it was expected and someone who wasn't spacebarring them is doing something wrong.

Even on the first FP (Black Talon/esseles) there are people spamming chat with "spacebar, come on!", sorry but that's rather selfish. By all means , this could be your 6th alt or something, but it may be the first roll for someone else.

It's not the request to spacebar that bothers me, it's how the request is presented. There have been times when someone has said "hey peeps, is it ok if we spacebar through the scenes?" a much more polite and possitive presentation with the same goal in mind. Personally, if someone asks (politely) to spacebar through scenes, i dont mind. If someone wants to kick back and watch them, that's fine too. As I stated, it's the seemingly forceful nature of demanding people spacebar which is the bottleneck of this situation.

People play this game for their own reasons and in their own ways. Sometimes those ways match your way of playing and sometimes they do not. You do not have the right to tell me how I have to play, nor I you. What I expect, demand and enforce is that you act politely. Failure to do so, as in real life, has consequences.

As a tank, I've started kick requests for jerks that get in and scream spacebar every conversation. Yes I spacebar but I'm damn sure I'm NOT going to spacebar if somebody says it more than once. Don't like it? Go wait in queue another half hour plus after being kicked from one of my groups and waiting for your lockout to expire and good luck getting tanks in the future cause I'm sure not going to run with your impatient demanding entitled *** ever again. Cause me enough grief and I'll tell my guild and friends just how much of a tool you are and they'll put you on ignore too.

If somebody says they want to see the story, I'll be patient and let them see it. While I've seen them all hundreds of times across 6x 50's spread across both factions but I still remember when I was wanting to see the story and some putz decided to start screaming spacebar.

The point is consideration. Have some. A new player is a new player. Even almost a year in, there are still people that haven't seen all the stories from every angle. I don't get stubborn on polite reminders to spacebar on content we've seen, we all zone out sometimes but I will if you force the issue and I'll not be shy about booting you if you decide to go all negative on me or any other party member.

Spacebar freaks and all the other variations of self-entitled idiots in this game will learn to play nicely with others or they won't play at all. I'm fed up with rudeness in the game and I've decided to do something about it. You see, I don't care how many times you've watched a cutscene, nor does anybody else. I care that you're treating everyone like crap and think you have some kind of authority to do so.

While you're at it, go ahead and get short with the new person who is wearing recruit in hardmodes about the gear he doesn't have too, see what we do to you then. Hint: I usually run with a like minded guild healer.

And this is why you try to bring your own tank,healer or even both if you are DPS, so these arguments don't happen.

If you don't want to watch the cutscene, spacebar and wait patiently. Most of those scenes last about a minute at most. Telling people that want to watch the story to spacebar, or threat to kick those that don't spacebar is absolutely ridiculous. If your time is so valuable that the extra 5 minutes is too much for you, you shouldn't be playing a life wasting MMO in the first place.

I haven't watched the cutscenes for BT or Esseles in months. But, I've set patiently while others did quite a few times. it's no big deal.

Esseless and Black Talon are the only Flashpoints where there are a lot of talking. 90% of the others have maybe... 2-4 minutes of cutscenes? And Places like 'The Foundry' are cool to see your character pull out their weapon alongside your team right before you fight...

Spoiler


I'd watch it 100 times.

It really isnt a big deal. Its not like the cut-scenes are that long. Lots of QQ over nothing.
