Please fix FP's so bosses cannot be skipped.

Well, thing is, the GF tool is for everybody. Old and new 50s, old and new players.
Here, some have said, "hey, you want gear, join an active guild and gear up with ops".
That same argument goes for an "old" 50. You want quick runs with overgeared burnt out people ? Join an active guild and queue up the premade that suits you better.

ok i don't want to sound like an *** but here it goes......... You can get better gear from BH comms therefore the tionese X that drops from the bonus boss is NOT worth it... Furthermore you can keep queuing for random FPs to farm tionese comms/crystals to purchase the would be item.

Yes, I play as a tank and I realize that many people want to do the bonus boss. I am fully augmented campaign tank I do this for the comms and people tend to wipe on bonus boss because they fail on the mechanic. I do FPs for the creds along with dailies and selling biometric alloys on the gtn.

If you want to fully clear the FP or watch the cutscenes that is seen hundreds of times roll a tank or go solo in normal. Tanks leave the group because repairs ARE NOT CHEAP, you might not notice this as dps/heals since you guys don't constantly get hit.

Lastly, it's and MMO meaning if your doing HM and in a group the majority rules.

I hope it didn't sound too harsh but its the truth. If you really want to see pain roll a tank and you'll see what I'm talking about in a few weeks, it's not pretty. All in all its important to have fun, but at the same time not waste another person or groups time.

The flashpoints rewards have been buffed in every sense, to appeal everybody in different ways. Social points, daily comms, more gear, tionese crystals/comms, biometric alloys, bh comms. The group finder is a convenience for everybody not just you who only wants the alloy and bh comms.

Not at the expense of someone else's right. If someone wants to play the content of the flashpoint, they have the right to do so.
Besides, is not always the sacrosanct "majority". Sometimes is just one. As a tank, you may have heard that you could have your way regardless of everything, taking avdantage of the fact that you ragequitting might mean a rather long wait for the rest of the group.

So, your telling me that IF I use the GF I have to entertain all of their needs? Ok I got it. And you wonder why tanks are rare in queue....

I have a healer and tank at 50 and do hard modes everyday with both, and if someone in the group wants to do a bonus boss or watch the conversations idm in the least. I mean we're talking an extra 15 minutes, that you would more than likely just spend standing somewhere on the fleet if you did skip the content. At least now you're actually doing something.

I have all Black Hole Gear Mods and nothing in any Flash Point has any value. I only want the coms so I can gear up my companions with Black Hole gear. So if you want to kill everything you can do it without my healer, tanks , or dps.

i agree that boss skipping is getting a bit extreeme. (teral V im looking at you) People even starting to bypass endboss in teral V. Many times people will kill a boss if you ask them. Its not like any boss is hard.

oh no, some people skip bossess so they can finish the fp 10 seconds earlier...

The universe is comming to an end!!

IF someone wants to do an extra boss for gear or something, just do it. You would be amazed how well you will be rewarded and happy.
Or unless this game is degenerating to a "Me, me, Me" state...

And think of it, if you wre in his position, would you not want the same?
Treat others like you would love to be treated. And you will feel alot better!
