I myself, who not having done any OPs, went to the forums to get some insight on what was expected from me and what I could expect in an OP. I can tell you the first thing I learned was, having zero knowledge of how the OP worked was not tolerated at all by anyone, and you would more than likely get berated and then booted from the group. That can be kind of intimidating to a new end game player and discourage them from even trying to learn OPs. People always forget they were new at one point just like everyone else.
This is my first PC game, I've never played an MMO before and I've never been guilded for more than a few days at a time (that's usually when i realize that they're not going to do the promised high-end raids so I might aswell pug SM/HM instead) yet I managed to figure out what to do. There is nothing wrong with the current version. Anyone with an IQ above 60 is capable of filling in the blanks by watching YT videos and reading guides.
What will happen now is that people will show up even more unprepared because they will think that bolster will do the work for them, just like they do in PvP.

Additionally, the only ones who ever should be in need of bolster are those who are on their first characters. Are those really the people that should be skipping content, such as a few flashpoints, and jump straight to raids? Everyone els will have enough elite comms on alts to gear their characters.

I do agree that the game needs newer and faster content, but dont assume everyone is like you
i agree with everything Kurin said in his/her post..as for what you i don't agree with you..just because you spend lots of money on the cartel market for fluff stuff, u have a right to be happy with this lackluster content roadmap/upate because it sounds to me... like you get happy with anything they tell us...the rest of us unlike you have a right to be upset with this underwhelming roadmap/update of whats to come over the summer...they release 2.8 semi patch notes and expect people to be happy about it just because they release it as a roadmap/update.lol get real dude..2.8 looks like its going to be straight garbage for an update that was suppose to be the biggest update of the year so far...what did we get in place of them removing GSH a new slot machine event..Really.wow......nim dp is the only thing thats worth a damn in that udate..and even that is old content from last year with higher difficulty setting..nothing new in that update has gotten Marjory of people on this thread excited included me...

I applaud the BW team for making some events unique. Please continue to do this.

I'm sorry you had bad experiences. Truly I am. When I organized SM ops, the only thing I asked was that you tell me ahead of time that you don't know the mechanics. And that you be able to follow an instruction as simple as "wait here with everyone else, go grab a coffee, whatever, but do not go past this door until my guildie with the star above their head moves." Or alternatively, "follow bolt, hit what he hits".

Having said that, if you were willing to join our voice chat to listen to instructions (you didn't have to speak, just be able to hear us), you would have already elevated yourself above 70% of the PuGs on the server. If you headed over to Dulfy.net to read the operations guide ahead of time to get an idea of the SM mechanics, you were above 90%.

How can you possibly add Casino support without adding Pazaak?!? You can no longer claim that you wish to avoid the Gambling ESRB tag. You can't claim it's a "tech limitation" even if that's true, since every time you've said that in the past it's really just been shown to be a lie. You can't say it ain't Star Wars, since it's more Star Wars than slot machines are...

Y U NO!?
PRE-ORDER ACCOUNT LEGACY LEVEL 50 LEVEL +55s: 24
ETERNAL WARRIOR CHEEVO POINTS: +31,000


I'm beginning to realize that us champions of denial who've stuck around all this time are the true Knights of this Fallen Empire that is the SWTOR itself. Just as in the Eternal Empire, this game has fallen due pride, lack of direction, and all-around incompetence.

Subbed from Dec. 15th, 2011 to Jan. 23rd, 2016. Left the game due to BioWare's ignorance, arrogance, and apathy.

I have used this color text since the start of the forums and before on other things. It's easy to read, it's not too bright and it's a nice color.

It's actually a lot more involved than adding the card game. There's lots of numbers to do with everything and algorithms to get it right so it feels fluid and dynamic.

- I couldnt help noticing that you are playing ranked in non-auged PvE gear?

That's a convo I wish I never had.
I LOLed. I played way too many solo ranked games yesterday with players who queued DPS and did less than 10k damage each round . Needless to say I lost every time one of these folks was on my side (why couldn't the match scheduling put one empty suit of armor on each side!!?)
