The moment i'm grouped i ask "quick run?" and mostly all 3 others say "yep". But if one says "my first time here >_>" i don't go aggro on him, but instead let him enjoy the story and just give advice where to skip trash / how to run etc.

Story Mode I agree.
HM no. If you're running HM then use the spacebar. Even if it's your first run the chances are the majority of your group has run it over and and over again. Be considerate. If you want the story run it in story mode, even if you way out level it (you can solo it then).

I enjoy watching the stories once or twice. If I run a HM that I haven't seen before I ask group if I can watch scenes, if they say no I run it later in story mode or youtube it. It's called being considerate the other people running.

I've seen the opposite. If someone votes kick for no space it almost always goes through from my experience. The one time I can think of that it didn't, the person who called the vote ragequit. We got a replacement, then that person ragequit from spacebar. Group eventually collapsed and no one completed.

Those of us who want to skip reserve the right to vote kick you if you want to watch cut scenes and waste our time. You are forcing your preference on us by making us sit and watch a cut scene we have seen a million times.

Note: as stated elsewhere in this thread, "I" spacebar through conversations and cutscenes. Unlike you though, I defend other's right to not do so.

I had someone complain that I didn't spacebar through an Esseles story mode run. And he got ticked that he lost a social roll and we killed the engineers.

The ability to kick people for any reason is the biggest problem with the group finder. So glad you can't do that crap in Warzones.

If you can't spare 5 minutes of your life for cutscenes, stop playing video games altogether. Saying "You're wasting my time!" with "video games" being the context of that statement is hilarious to me.

James Ohlen: " For 2012 we really want players to feel like they're getting their money's worth. You're going to see so many changes and additions to the Star Wars Universe. It's going to be impressive. We have our Update 1.2 coming in the next week and then after that it's going to continue to roll out month after month. It's exciting."
