Any chances of going back and adding story modes to those Flashpoints that don't have it? Like, the two Rakghoul Flashpoints Kaon under Siege and Lost Island actually have a little storyline going on, but they have no story modes.

It'd be funny if they took those two (easily the hardest flashpoints in the game aside from Rishi) and made them as difficult as, say, the hardest Eternal Championship fights, or even harder, for their solo modes.

It'd be a fun challenge, and since they're technically "optional" story, people would be able to ignore them if it's too hard to go through with them.

Still no mention of the Preview Window bug. Any word on when it will get fixed?

It's kinda annoying since a very large part of the game revolves around outfits/character customization.

Is this going to get addressed, or just quietly ignored and removed much like vanilla Ilum?
I haven't done Iokath yet. Been lazy about it. So it's not like Outlaw's Den where your forced into PvP mode by entering the area? Its like how it would be where you can toggle PvP on or off?

Yup. There were way too many demands that Iokath be a world where PvE can be toggled on or off. So it's entirely useless to hope for PvP there. The only people in the PvP instance are the ones who want to farm mats and mobs without being interrupted by others..... because of how empty it is. Is that irony or what? Lmao

I still don't get why there was so much pressure. We have TWO areas in the entire GAME that "force" PvP on you,Outlaw's Den, and the South End of Ilum Western Ice Shelf. There are literally dozens of daily areas, Section X, Black Hole, Oricon, Rishi (I think? Or one other planety from SoR, I forget), Yavin 4, Voss, Makeb, and every planet with the heroics, every event has a non-PvP daily area (and there is almost always some event active), and yet people demanded that Bioware give yet another PvE daily area.

Absurd in my opinion. Simply forcing PvP in the area, or even adding in objectives that greatly increase the rewards there would have made the planet the actual PvP-world it's false advertised to be.

^ I second this! Almost all of the 1-50 FP's that don't have story modes could really benefit from them, and maybe we could get a solo mode to the finales for the Macrobinocular and seeker droid missions? :P (Which reminds me, why did Directive 7 get a solo mode?)

I do not want to be forced into pvp on a world that I need to do the story to continue with it. while some other places it does not have the story aspect in it, that's why they needed to do what they did.

Okay, but they advertised the world as a PvP world. And it has 0 PvP on it. Literally nothing except organized PvP ever happens on it. PvPers want ONE planet where they can regularly go for objective-based OWPvP with its own rewards, story players and PvErs have literally every other planet in the entire game. They can easily make the simple restriction that anyone who has the purple mission gets their own PvE instance, everyone else forced onto the PvP instance, and they can make a second entry point for the VotMG Operation on Odessen or aboard the Gravestone. With that, story players can enjoy their peace, PvErs can bypass the PvP to get to their Ops, and PvPers finally get ONE planet where we do OWPvP.
