They could offer me a personal chapter with Lana and it would not compel me to group for a flashpoint.
Um... couldn't you ask a real life friend to come over to your house and play three WZs for you? Yeah, long shot, I know, but...
Hohoho, now I have a referral link, too!

But it's not a subscriber reward.

Just(1) like Master Ranos, the thing you must do is an in-game participation thing. It's a reward for participating in the game.

(1) I use the term loosely. Getting Master Ranos involved a great deal more than three group flashpoints or three warzones:
* Get a DvL character to level 25. (Heroic level)
* Get a DvL character to level 50 and do three story-mode flashpoints. (Legacy level)
* Complete the Shadow of Revan story on a DvL character. (Valiant level)
* Complete chapters I to IX of KotFE. (Valiant level)
* Complete the introductory stronghold mission from the holostatue on a DvL character. (Valiant level)
* Complete KotFE up to Chapter XVI on a DvL character. (Champion level)
* Complete five KotFE Alliance Alerts on a DvL character. (Champion level)
* Complete ALL tactical ("Veteran" these days) flashpoints except Black Talon and The Esseles on as many DvL characters as needed. (Champion level)
* Complete enough Warzones to get a DvL character to Valor 5. (Champion level) (Two Warzones was enough.)
* Get a Republic DvL character to level 65. (Eternal level)
* Get an Empire DvL character to level 65. (Eternal level)
* Complete round 5 of the Eternal Championship on a DvL character. (Eternal level)

Compare that to Darth Hexid:
* EITHER complete three group flashpoints
* OR complete three warzones.

My RL friends who live close by are decidedly not gamers, so that would be a very weird request for them...the RL friends I have who play SWTOR are elsewhere (which is actually how I ended up on a server that is nowhere near where I live - it's their server). Plus I don't want my character anywhere near PvP.

I don't play PvP and I don't want to be anywhere around it. I will not put my character in PvP. I'd halfway considered just entering a match and walking away to the next room or something and coming back when they were dead, but I don't think that would really be fair to the other player who queued up and waited for however long the queue was to actually play.

At the end of the day it doesn't matter - EA/BW set the terms, and they are what they are, and some of us do not wish to participate. I do think that it's a shame they've chosen to exclude solo players this way, and it's a bummer to miss out on Darth Hexid, but it is what it is.

if you let me know what server you are going to be on I would be happy to level up a quick character and go through three flash points with you (if youre not on star forge). we dont have to talk or even acknowledge each other outside of accepting the group invite. only caveat is that sometimes my ability to get online is spotty (havnt been able to log on all week), but im sure we could work something out.

Agreed, I can help out too! Although I live in Scotland, I wouldn't mind helping out on the N/A server. 90 ms isn't so bad

This is my bet. ^

SOmeone has to suddenly work for the next month straight and can't get logged in or we'll have to hear how someone lost their internet or PC and can't do anything to get in and get it and it will happen before the event even ends.
