Sure, no problem. just warn us (tanks and healers) that you came to FP for exp points, so we can leave and que up again... not every one wants to spend 1.5 hour doing battle of Ilum.
joking a bit, but really, warn your tank you want to do a Ilum Massacre.

Some has the cash to spend on this game, some does not or does not want to.

I am only saying that if a player spends cash on exp perks (it actually costs a bit to max them out) they should get value for their money and gain more exp from flashpoints.

If a player does not respect that, I will not miss that player

I did Illum last night with someone that at first refused to do the bonus, but in the end he said he was glad he did.

He had never seen the bonusboss and we had lots of fun taking mobs down

The game is about having fun, not speed running flashpoints chasing a few bosses.

I wonder if anyone actually enjoy that

So you can taunt things faster and accuracy is there so the fast taunts don't miss, fly off and taunt a tree or something.

1 - I understand that those leveling want to kill all the mobs to gain experience. I totally get that as well.
2 - Lvl 55's doing old FP's to get classic comms is sort of lol.
3 - However, I've read a few posts in this thread by you and find it a bit presumptuous for you to dictate was is the new standard or telling people how they should have fun. Some don't have fun spending 1.5 hours in FP's they did for so long in Vanilla (like me). However, I'd never queue for lvl 50 FP's anymore with my lvl 55's.

I expect from a lvl 55 when he/she joins a below lvl 55 fp (SM 50, HM 50) he/she will adjust to the groups need. If not he shouldn't have joined.

I know exactly what you mean.

Mind you, I would never ever inflict that on a pug unless they all actually wanted to.

At this point I can pretty safely say not anymore. Got a whole crew in 69s or better at this point and still find myself slamming hard into the elite comms cap.

If any lvl 50-54 wants to do a full run with bonus because its there first time. That's Ok. And depending on if I have the time or not, I'll stay or drop.

But experience or leveling isn't a good reason. If you want to lvl faster, do the dailies, makeb, and wz. You'll be 55 in a few days without using any exp boost.
