Understand this.

Everyone starts off with a class, it can do simple attacks but it is very limited in keeping up damage and can't do very powerful attacks.

By choosing an advanced class you are upgrading your damage and your defences.

By not choosing an advanced class you are the noob who is deliberately weakening the group by not pulling their weight because no matter how good you are the basic skills without advanced boosts are really very rubbish compared to any advanced class.

You are not being a "pure" class because advanced classes are still the same class. You are staying in the "novice" rank of the class and anyone seeing that in a group will recognise that you are weak and will kick you.


If you want to be different then this is the price you pay.

You gain nothing by not being in an advanced class but you are in a special category of players who level up without choosing an advanced class and that's something people do it for. Attention.

You should either let others know that you are deliberately trying to reach 55 without advanced class and ask them if they are okay with it. I think I wouldn't mind doing normal content with basic class as long as you use cces and abilities properly and have top-notch gear (and the rest of the party can basically 3-man the content anyway). I would kick you if you just showed up in flashpoint without a word though. Group with people who understand and accept what you are trying to achieve. I am sure you'll be able to find someone willing to help. You'll save lot of headaches to yourself and to people around.
Getting to 55 with basic class is awesome! Just be diplomatic about it. Thumbs up!

EDIT: Your case is not a case of abuse of team kick. You are the culprit here.

Whatever the reason he got kicked for is - I am not gonna argue. However I believe that what matters is the fact that the kick feature is abused quite often and it's easily done. 3 guild members kicking the other guy to make a spot for their pal near the end of the flashpoint is pretty common. Also met jerks trying to make some loser to kick out of you by pointing out every thing they don't like about your style, class and whatever to other team mates just to get you out for their own amusement - never mind that getting to the last boss lasted less than 15 minutes with no wipes. >.> And they click "yes" just to be done with it. Vote kick is actually a fancy griefing tool.

Flashpoints are unpleasant way too often (not most of the time but it's enough for me not to wait up to an HOUR in a queue and risk a nasty party composed of mentioned jerks or someone unable to communicate) and the way kick can be exploited made me stay away from doing any more flashpoints than ez mode Czerka stuff for comms.

Can't help feeling that post is exaggerating hugely.

"Common" for 3 players to kick someone from a flashpoint which has been going smoothly? Sure.

Common for 3 players to kick someone from a flashpoint which is wiping on trash? Absolutely.

Making a space for a guildie is fairly common.
