Problem I have is when I created my first pub toon that I actually took through flashpoints, I had never done Taral 5 and Maelstorm. I was up front about this and when I chose to watch the cutscenes, I was kicked out of the group as it was 3 guildmates that were the group and myself. Again, I told them I had not seen the Taral 5 stuff and was going to watch it, no reply, kicked out of group and this was story mode.
If you were kicked out of a guild group then you have a ****** guild.

Some of us have tested this, for instance, on BT when you ride the shuttle over. You can pound the spacebar but it forces you to wait for the exact same amount of time as it takes to watch the cutscene.
This may be true about the shuttle ride. This is not true of convos. Go storm through black talon by space barring and time it then watch every cut scene and time it. There will be a huge difference.

It wasn't my guild, I was the extra. Now it did upset me because of the fact that I was kicked because I wanted to watch the cutscenes (asked why I was kicked), the big issue here is that while I am a pre launch player and pretty much said oh well and requeued, if I was a new player, this could be what drives me away from the game.

I don't really get that kind of attitude. o.o For story modes FPs, I always ask if anyone hasn't been there before (because if they have I ask everyone to spacebar); for HMs, I'll only ask that for The False Emperor and Kaon Under Siege, two exemplary FPs with interesting stories.

He/she is probably the player you have to keep running back for because they have to attack EVERY mob. Though personally I let them die. Just like the GOGOGO marauder/sent tanks. I dont even try to pick up the mobs, and my healer wont heal them. We stand back until he is dead.

I would suggest they add an "express" tag to the group finder, allowing a person to indicate they wish to skip the dialog in a particular run, and that lets others know they want to do so. They could even match players based on this tag.

It would allow for those that wish to experience the story without being hassled, and at the same time give convenience to those that wish to run the content quickly.

I don't understand what the big whoop is. When you start a pug, ask folks, spacebar or cutscenes? And then work it out ahead of time. It's like figuring out who is main tank and who is healing whom and so on, it's just negotiating tactical point of grouping, for the style of the folks involved.

I remember a week or so ago, I queued up for daily HM and got D7. First thing I ask as we hit the first cut scene: "Killing Boss or Skipping Bosses?" Everyone else goes: "Doesn't matter"

I didn't need the gear, but the tank goes, "Want to kill the bonus boss?" and Everyone goes: "YEAH!" cuz I'd never done it and they hadn't done it in a while. It was UBER fun! We had a good ol' time running around trying to figure out the bonus quests and where the click things are.

Sometimes it works out. I personally I have never told anyone to space bar (Unless it is my BF and I am yelling at him for playing his DS while we lvl, lol). If people want to space bar, all good, if not, all good too, I can alt tab and check my mail or get a drink real quick.

I'm pretty laid back about things and am not the kind of person to get upset quickly at the game. Hit me up if you wanna do the whole FP in HM sometime I'd love to do FE bonus boss or D7 again!

This.

I'm sick of people not spacing through Black Talon\Essel. Especially when they're asked if they mind if we skip and they just remain silent. Ran those so many times I noticed that Asara has green eyes on the Esseles and brown eyes aboard Kilran's ship. To hell with those.

Want to see story? Go solo it on level 16-20 and don't delay others.
