What is the schedule for the group finder raid going to be? Or at least which one is first?

Not gonna say i'm super excited about the Nightlife Event. Since no credits can be used to buy tokens to use. WZ comms ok... But, creds would also bring in the whole feel of a casino, if you know what i mean. The Ops group Finder is just fine, and PvP i don,t mind. (As i don't really do often)
Never fear the darkside, for it fears only the worthy

According to dulfy's guide She's listing credits as can be used. Maybe it's a mistake in the blog?

This is a nice format, having the people that actually make the stuff post an article.

Please consider doing it again in the future.

Reaching the Ultimate and Elite Comms weekly cap is already an issue, wish they could have raised that a bit.

well I hope this means that this will NOT be the only way to get to OPS, I work 2nd shift so my schedule can be a bit strange at times,and the main problem is not the equipment but the skill or lack of it by the PUG players,I have had pug that are great and some that are TERRIBLE,I will admit on some i am very good ,some only so-so. If I am looking to do a full run or weekly I would not want a GF PUG.
