The problem is a lot of older players who have good legacy bonuses running max level content are not seeing the same difficulty others are.
I've ran plenty of FPs, both story and hard modes, without issue. One hardmode FP I had two legit newbies in, that was a bit of a carryfest struggle, but us old dps boys were flexible enough to offtank/heal for them to get trough.
Old content is only hard if you dont know what you're doing, as I just witnessed :P

For the record, I'm running whatever random green gear I happen to loot. Dont have a single setbonus effect yet (my poo roll luck)

Interesting. "Too difficult" is a phrase that I have never heard applied to this game before.

That's about it.

I have seen many, many battles where the hostiles had absolutely no hope of defeating my characters, but the battles still took a long time.

The enemies' attacks simply weren't strong enough to overcome my characters' armor and healing. They never made a dent in my characters' health.

Defensively, however, the hostiles had so much armor and health that it took a really, really long time to whittle them down.

I wouldn't say the battles were difficult, unless you count fighting off mind-numbing boredom.

This is why I play with a DPS companion whenever I can get away with it. When it crosses over into being just hard-hitting enough and long-lasting enough that I can't get away with it, it doesn't become more difficult... it becomes way more faceroll than playing with a DPS comp and more mind-numbing due to how long it takes. :/

I think at this stage, there's no point in my having hope they'll ever get the tuning in a nice spot across the board. Onslaught content actually seems fairly reasonable about this compared to KOTFE/ET from my playing yesterday, but then they change how scaling works in the same update and make just about everything else take longer, apparently. Left hand don't know what the right hand is doing.

Lie.

As I and others have pointed out, the change in difficulty is especially brutal for new characters.

Last week I could solo the first vet FP with a character fresh from the starter planet, with at most a few close moments.

This week it isn't even remotely possible.

So just because your viewpoint was louder doesn't mean your speaking for anyone more than I am.
That's not casual at all lol. That's a hard core player.

And to everyone talking about the game being too hard, it's definitely more difficult but not too hard. I was able to get to 306 gear with my set bonus in only about 15 hours of grinding, it's not that difficult, just time consuming.

Time consuming and difficult aren't the same thing.

Once you get a decent item level (about 280s, which doesn't take long to get), everything literally just melts, just like the old days.

People still trying to put down casuals by saying the game used to be harder seem to neglect to mention that level sync wasn't a thing. If you had issues with something, overlevel it. Bring a friend. Get a set for your companion (when that was a thing). Clearly, some parts of the game are out of whack because they insist on keeping this level sync trash, so let people vent. People spending more time scolding others (who are likely not even from the same group) asking for content balance than giving useful feedback for BW to ignore, but at least with BW ignoring you, you'd earn an WE TOLD YOU SO' without looking like an a**.

Yup, its just more annoying as the mobs take longer to kill, but they are not more dangerous.

As others have pointed out, difficulty is still nowhere near the level it was at launch. It is still easy compared. You cannot deny it.
