The right class geared can solo most of the flashpoints anyway with just one companion out...

You're right. My Marauder with my healing comp can solo most, but I'm decked out in Dreadguard gear and my comp is full 61, but that's not what the people in favor of this style are really arguing. If you're decked out in gear like me, you're probably not complaining about group content.

If they're truly that adverse to group content but want to do endgame flashpoints then they can just buy the 61/63 grade gear off the GTN and then solo pretty much every Tier 1 HM FP.

Right again, but most solo players probably don't have the credits to do this either. From what I'm gathering from most solo players they hate grinding so I doubt they've earned the credits from doing dailies enough. Just my guess. There could be some that have the credz, but I'm guessing most don't.

If player likes story aspects -> do most of the quests (doesn't include money maked from crafting) they make quite the load of credits before story "end".

Can't myself estimate how much because I have mailed every surplus 50k to alts. A lot.

Instead of getting bored after a few weeks at 50 the giving it up..
Wouldn't work for some flashpoints, companions just stand in one spot so that pretty much eliminates them from any fight where they need to move to avoid damage.... I have no issues finding people to do FP's, sometimes I have to wait 30-60 mins before one pops but i Just continue to level by doing quests until it does...
F2P is like driving on a long stretch of highway with toll booths every 1/2 mile

Time will tell if this becomes a reality but with my Trooper who is dps I will wait over a half hour to find a group in q. I just feel this would stop the bleeding of people leaving this game so fast once they hit lvl 50. Once your lvl 50 the game ends as far as story. This would be a great bridge for a lot of people where companions would interact during flashpoints. This game though has become like every MMO the end game is all about loot. I expected more stories and more story involvement. If this is a story driven MMO they should keep the stories coming every update. Why get HK 51 if you can only run dailys with him?

Bingo, game cant hold people becuase:

Replayability is awful (less that 5% content different for each class on same side, group content is mostly the same)
As soon as you hit 50, unless you raid and are gear nut youll quit very soon (more like immediately)

And they wonder why 2+m people said no to SWTOR. What they offer IS NOT worth of subscription, free trial to lvl50 will change nothing.
