Kaon Under Siege and Lost Island Veteran Flashpoints not in Group Finder

Veteran versions of Kaon Under Siege and Lost Island flashpoints are not present in the group finder (which still uses the old "Tactical Flashpoint" definition). These 2 Flashpoints were not scaled like the others in 4.0. cycle, which is why their exclusion made sense at the time. However, with 5.0. they have been scaled to Level 70 like all other Veteran Flashpoints, which means finding a group for them without a grop finder is now unreasonably difficult, and almost impossible, especially when you consider that Veteran versions of those Flashpoints are required for several achievements.

Please make sure those 2 Flashpoints are added to the Group Finder Veteran (Tactical) selection. Thank you.

I can already imagine
- LR-5 Sentinel Droid with random people through GF
- Sav-Rak with random people through GF (you think Valk's push is annoying?)

They would have to remove so many things from these two flashpoints that it would make them boring to do. Don't expect a random player to do the mechanics right in last boss fight in Lost Island.

No, there is indeed a Veteran mode. It's just not tactical.

I believe I recall that this was actually discussed during one of the dev streams a while ago. The reasoning behind there being no Tactical / Veteran version of these two flashpoints is that the design philosophy behind them was radically different from the other flashpoints and that they were deemed too difficult for players in a random group to successfully navigate and complete.

In other words, there's no one who can be bothered to tune them for Tactical use.

That would have been strange criteria. You can pug it in hard mode...like that would be easier to pug than tactical? Unless you/they meant "too difficult for a quartet of dps that refuse to run kolto stations or use DCDs", then yeah, I would have avoided a tactical version of these two like the plague
