Game is too difficult now.

This thread is what happens when people get used to be so incredibly overgeared that they can faceroll everything. Most MM FP's in 5.x were tuned for I think 236 gear even though by the end of the expac, people were in 258's. Now with the gear reset, people are remembering what it's like to not be overgeared, you actually need to know your class and the encounters in order to do more difficult content.

That isn't it. I've been leveling a new Jedi Knight over the past week and am only level 45. There has been a huge change in difficulty in terms of doing normal story content I am well overleveled for. I did Tatooine last night (again as a level 45 with heroic gear from level 40+ heroics so well over leveled and geared) with Kira set on DPS and was losing over half my health every other group of trash mobs. I had to have her spend a lot more time in healing to get through things.

This isn't only a companion issue either. Content that used to be possible with your companion dismissed is now tearing through me like tissue. The worst part is its not even making it harder, just longer. When Kira is on healing I can still do everything without any issue, but I can't keep her on DPS for trash like I could before. So it's just as easy for story content, just quite a bit longer.

I sure didn't notice that when I was testing out my various characters last night, but it's totally what I want. I want crafting or finding better gear to have an effect. I want getting a new ability and learning how to use it to have an effect.
I'm so tired of just sleep walking through the story content, and I miss when SWTOR was a GAME from beginning to end.

When it's happening even 15 levels overleveled and with good gear that does make it feel like getting a new piece of gear or new abilities is helping. I think it may have something to do with the gear scaling they are using.

The companion nerfs make sense, but not being able to play without either taking a break every trash pull or using a healing companion for content well below you isn't a challenge it's just a slower grind.

It's not much harder, just longer and more boring. Harder is: new mechanics or having to use your brain more during combat. Increasing mobs HP and damage is just longer.
Liked it better before.

Sometimes, when I'm thinking things are too easy, I have to remind myself that I have level 50 companions, all the datacron bonuses, bonuses from being a Legendary player, plus Guild bonuses, and maybe a couple others I've forgotten.
For someone new, starting out with none of those extras, things can be a bit tougher.

They need a "pre-schooler" difficulty setting for this game apparently. It can't get much easier than it already is outside of PvP and raiding.

Exactly.
You still can solo MM FPs and Uprisings in your sleep with heal comp.
They'd better remove healing companions from the game for good.

No need for that. The game has always had healer ability comps from the get go. It's incredible to me that people actually need them to be be Jesus-droid level strong now though or suddenly they feel that the game is too hard.

Talk about training wheels. They really opened Pandora's Box with the way they handled comps during Kotfe/kotet. From giving us access to basically all of them, to removing gear, to buffing them into demi-gods... all bad moves in my view.
