level synch is the best thing that has ever happened to this game, finally I can actually go back to a planet where I had completed my story and pick up some of the other lore content without chain pulling the entire map so I could aoe burn it to death before the animations could even light up.

I still don't understand why people feel the need to be 50 levels above content, it isn't like its hard, if you want to go through a story without any interaction go read a book.

Total BS in my opinion...I play mostly solo and most of the time I want to do the story and level up as quick as possible. If I work hard on leveling on one planet, the other planet (like balmorra or tatooine) should be as it was: easier if you are a couple levels higher. That is the benefit of leveling up for god sake. I also liked doing flashpoints solo, but so much for that now. Getting nerfed as a if it were a penalty for going to an earlier planet to finish side missions is rediculous. This was the dumbest idea that has left me deciding if I want to cancel my subscription or not...

What a garbage feature. I mostly play this game on my own and really enjoyed running through flashpoints or side quests in my down time from previous planets. Will be cancelling my subscription since I basically cannot play my way solo anymore. It was easy enough to level up anyway so don't really see how being artificial lower for the sake of experience is a value add.

It needs to be turned off for doing the world boss quest in chapter 9

There's still plenty of reason to level up, and for people on Coruscant, they are unlikely to notice any difference between how it is now, and how it was then.

But even when you're 30+ levels over a given planet it's still not bad. You don't lose any of your abilities and can pretty much stream roll over everything on the planet.

That's one of the main reasons it was put into the game.

Exactly what could you do before you can't do now?

You can do most of the FP's solo even with level sync, and now they actually give you XP. You can still do heroic 2+ without any issue. You can do side missions as well if not better than before.
