Give us Nightmare mode Flashpoints please! I would love a way to still progress without needing 8 people and something that I can do more often than once a week. Even if we were able to get Rakata gear, if the difficulty was high enough and the drops were contained (like still only drops one piece per run) then I don't feel like this would be a huge upset to the game.

Anyone else bored of HM Flashpoints? I honestly like them a lot more than Ops but the difficulty isn't there.

Edit: Actually a one week lockout wouldn't be bad, but we would still have many (7 at the moment) different flashpoints to clear each week. Thoughts?
make em a 3 day lockout
but even though i wouldnt probably run these, i think it is a good idea worth supporting for you folks who would Free stuff, bandwagon referral link, click if you want

Having alternate gear is a great idea! I was only saying Rakata because that's the next tier of gear but I would love to see new stuff as well. I agree that enrage timers are a tired mechanic, would love to see stuff like adds, new abilities, etc. that require us to learn the nightmare mode of the flashpoint all over.

As for the 8 person argument:
I wasn't saying that I can't get 8 people, in fact we do 8 man ops each week. I was just saying that I'd like to have something to do when I'm online and there aren't 7 other people ready to go (with an unlocked op).

I have to agree with you

I find enrage to be the dumbest thing ever, not because I can't deal with it, I've done 8man hard, starting 16 soon, and all the hard fps with no troubles

It's dumb because it's lazy scripting.. get some creativity in boss design and get rid of this time limit crap lol..

It makes no sense that a mob can just decide "oh hey it's that time, I'm going to enrage now" if they have that ability why wouldn't they just be enraged from the start. Maybe I'm wrong in trying to approach it from a logical standpoint as it is a video game with make believe monsters, but the best science fiction still follows logic that's a key aspect in making it awesome.
