he can't do harder modes because no such things exists for class stories. the difficulty toggle affects kotet and kotfe only.

These ppl don't build their fun upon the game, they built it upon other's pain and "better than you", which is nothing but harmful garbage to any kind of player community.
I do agree, comps were overpowered a little but the players complaining could do a lot to change that from removing gear to putting comps on tank or dps. As per usual they just ***** and complain instead of just using a little common sense and just change there own characters to the level they want. Then add gear back when needed. There's not much players can do the other way round, if they are struggling. Now if comps were down powered just a little it probably would not be an issue to anyone, which it is now, even if only for a few players. As per usual BW go from one extreme to another. seems BW are totally incapable of learning from pass errors as BW changed healing before only to change it back a few weeks later.

He can however change he's gear accordingly but choices not to, so instead ruins someone else's game play.

Speaking of "play your way", can we talk about how they butchered Flame Thrower & Pulse Cannon? Losing Master Strike was bad enough, but this?

M&B should have been easier, sure.

SM is designed for ppl to go through, that's why other modes exist.

I can't play the character class stories in HM/NiM and BioWare has stopped rewarding harder content as it is.

That's because of people like you. Sometimes you get what you want, sometimes you don't.
You can, take off the gear and dismiss the companion.

I don't, you have the option to do so.

Also, I'm not a player who has no idea of what my class is. I've been through all of them in the vanilla era, beat LI HM, went through most of the HM ops as well. But the new fp's bonus boss in SM is just way too hard as a SM challenge. I used all my skills and CDs it's not working well. It seems to be bugged, too.

"squeaky wheel gets the grease "
the ones who complain the most, get what they want -- same in all games everywhere
( ps -- I never complained, but I "only do the story content" -- so MY voice never counts anyway, I just let known my displeasure by unsubbing )

Actually he can, just set the companion to passive mode and take of the gears.

I've been through all the class stories in vanilla, which was way difficult than now, I still don't think it should have been the way for everyone.

Kira is a knight companion. Knights have no healing spec. I am confused by how you "healed" Kira.
My main is also a Jedi Guardian Defence Tank so Guard and then Tank to reduce her incoming damage
med packs , heroic moment and the out of combat self heal between fights .
<3 Kira is back <3 YAY !!! ...for 2 min.... and then ..no interaction
