Any chance of the level 55 ops being available as well? (Storymode, obviously) I have a feeling it's gonna be hard to get into groups for the level 55 ops now since level 60s can't be in level 55 group finder. Saw a message in fleet chat that was something like "LGF TFB GF 55-59" which kinda makes me feel like I lost access to that content just by leveling to 60. I wouldn't even mind the rewards being lowered substantially, I do it more for the experience than the rewards to be honest. Just kinda sucks to not have as much access to those ops now.

Worse, 55-59 HM bosses drop elites, 60 HM bosses drop basics.

I cannot fathom why we can't Q for everything in the group finder. Set a minimum gear check so undergeared people can't get into hard modes and it's fine. I'd like to do old content for achievements but it's a pain to setup. City of Heroes had a system that would scale you down to the appropriate level of a group instance so you would fight it at it's level. Disappointing group finder so far.

I look forward to this. Now if only there was a way for us to actually run classic Ops...how about giving us level-cap-scaled versions of them? Or letting us queue for HM versions of them at 60?

Knowing the basics of how the current bolster functions, artificially raising your gear level up to a target value if it isn't already there, I'd imagine that this reverse process would have to artificially lower your gear level down to a target value if it's already at something higher. So they would define for each flashpoint and op both a minimum and maximum gear rating, and the scale-up / scale-down effects would insure that all group members fall somewhere within that range.

Of course they would have to be able to custom tailor both effects for every flashpoint and op individually rather than just having one all-purpose max level function like they seem to have with bolster currently. The system would need min and max levels defined for every flashpoint and op as well. The scale-up bolster would raise your level to the minimum if it isn't there already, and the scale-down anti-bolster would lower your level to the maximum if it's already at something higher.

(Instead of adding this reverse process as yet another buff to appear on the screen, maybe just work both approaches into the same bolster buff and change the tooltip to reflect the new rules and refer to the level range and item rating range that it's making sure that you fit inside.)

Would like to see a choice between 8 man and 16 man versions of ALL 50 - 60 GF content. Pretty sure you guys can designate loot tables appropriate for each Op / mode. Once you hit 60 GF is pretty much useless except for the Tac daily / weekly.
Dammit ... I HAVE to stop buying no name brand batteries for my light saber !

And why not the older ops on rotation like it used to be? All you have to do at 60 is 2 now.

ALL ops and Flashpoints should be in GF. SM and HM. ALL of it. Even if they only grant Basic comms. It helps with Conquest points since the GF is always there. You guys are cutting out older content and then not making it so people can get as many Conquest points as well.
