Its tough but really there is no reason to complain!

The normal mode of the Flashpoint is for lvl 50s. Nothing great to reward but you can enjoy the story.

THe gear that drops is Columi and 1 Rakata piece. None of these pieces are unique to this Flashpoint and drop elsewhere (Columi in other HM FP final bosses, and Normal EV/KP, and Rkata from HM EV/KP and Normal EC).

It's YOUR choice if you wanna do it on Hardmode. Hundreds of people have already beat the FP with just a bit of learning the fights difficulty. That alone tells us, that it's totally fine.

The Risk to Reward ratio is fine, in the sense that it rewards MORE than the other HM Flashpoints, and so is HARDER to beat, to earn the reward.

We had a bounty hunter healer with us and because of the stupid *** nerfs you did to them he had full heat before the first phase.

Was this really designed to be a flashpoint that only gives Tionese Crystals and Columi.

To be honest I don't know how a PUG would be able to do this.

Do you not test this crap before the release?
Wake up and smell the roses. If Bioware makes more content that was as easy and boring as "nightmare" EV and KP they will lose more subs than they are already losing.

Also if you enjoy easy content, are you aware that there is story mode? Do you realize how stupid you look when you flip the switch to HARD mode and then complain that it's too hard?

As for the testing comment, I personally tested it on the PTR and it was fine, actually, it was fun. Why was it fun? because it was challenging...

Having to learn fight's and going in blind is what makes new content fun, already knowing every mechanic and dominating new content is never how anything should be released.

Challenges are good, people don't understand that anymore and feel as though they are entitled to dominate content just because of the gear the currently possess.

our group comp btw was:

Jugg Tank
Merc/Sorc DPS
Operative Heals
This it is a lot fo fun seeing new content that isn't tank and spank.

Bioware overtuned Lost Island, why is anyone's good guess. The instance bosses mainly drop columi, so people who are in less than columi logically would be attempting it for gear drops, yet it seems to be in difficulty far more than this type of group would attempt. It leaves the question who is HM Lost really aimed at...in my view nobody.
May the farce be with you

Testing level 50 content open only to guilds getting copied over, leveling and gearing up a toon to 50 in month is asking a bit much. Some of us have jobs and real life.

This flashpoint should of had 3 modes, instead of the 2 so the guilds that are well geared and wanting a extra challenge can have it without alienating the remaining people who arn't yet but don't want to run it in campagin mode just for the storylines.

I agree, first boss is utterly impossible. We're all full columi/rakata, and we can't kill him. It's stupid. BioWare, you SUCK at bossdesigns.

First boss is easy if u got 2 ranged dps, cause this blue lightening always drop on DPS, BUT!
If u got 1 melee or hell-no! u got 2 melee DPS, it's impossible to do, case tank have to dance with those aoe crap like a crazy one... and also ads, melee can't get em fast enough cause they have to run so much... so... dear BioWare, may be you should remove Melee DPS from da game in that case?

People will QQ period... I am stoked about the difficulty and I say that after a 2 hour wipe fest on it last night... maybe we will get him down today when our main guild hardhitters log on.

You are not talking about HARD mode are you?
Oh wait, you are...
Well, PUGs are supposed to do normal mode unless they have some patience and care to learn tactics and wipe a bit in HM.
