Please fix FP's so bosses cannot be skipped.

Oh, but I know this.

Everytime I hit the "queue" button I'm well aware that I could find nice people and jerks, all mixed up. Friend's list for the former, ignore list for the latter.
But definetely this doesn't mean the game shouldn't be improved to discourage the jerkiiness around.

Treat others like you would love to be treated. And you will feel alot better!
I'm a Tank and I agree with this. Everybody in the group should be considered equally, and it's fairly obnoxious to consider DPS reasons for being there less important than those playing other roles. Most FP bosses can be steamrolled by those who no longer need to do them anyway, so it would not hurt to help one of your teammates out. Unfortunately the game doesn't entail a setting to adjust other player's attitudes, so a system like this might work where human nature fails.

DING DING DING WE HAVE A WINNER.
I am in all Black Hole gear so why would I spend more time in a FP on no rewards other then cash or wipe?

Answer reward the person with something worth spending the time in a FP fighting a Boss.

Example kill all the Boss in a FP and get a cash bonus or item or roll on something worth having like gear or ride.

If this is happening in 1-49 then well that just sucks. If this is happening at 50+ either run with friend or your just using luck to see what happens. 50+ is normally people trying to bang out a daily. Really your going to get the most or better gear trying to throw a quick 8 man run of EV HM or EC story-mode, with some well gear friends.

It wasn't so long ago when you were ONLY getting a single COLUMI piece in a HM FP from the final boss, all other bosses were dropping 1-2 tionese crystals ( + 1 tionese item from 2nd boss ? and another tionese item from a bonus boss ? ). The only exception to this was Kaon which dropped a 2nd columi token from the bonus boss before that was "fixed".

People who have been playing this for a while now are:
1. used to skipping bosses as they were a COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME
2. have already cleared these FPs ( and killed all of the bosses, including the bonus ones ) countless times
3. Do NOT need anything but the 5 BH comms

Also you have to consider that the other 3 people in you group have the right to an opinion just as you do. Same applies to skipping conversations -> if the other 3 ( the majority ) want to skip but you keep wasting their time then obviously you will get kicked.

I might add that if you do Story mode Ops and HM Ops then you gear twice as fast while also doing Dailies.

I have geared up 4 50s very quickly this way. Skipping bosses is much faster and gets me gear quicker.

People acting like dirtbags because of the skipping are doing so not only because they're rolling a tank (or to a lesser extent, a healer), it's because they get the BH comms regardless of how they behave themselves.

You skip bosses, you get 2 comms, you kill the "mandatory" ones, the 5 we currently get, you kill the bonus boss as well, 6 total. Something like that. There will much less skipping this way.
I like this idea, maybe put all the real bosses drop a BH com and reduce the group finder reward to two or three.

Like this, some of the HM FPs via group finder would take 10-15 minutes longer and it would give 2-3 BH coms more.

As a side product, new people might learn to play faster if they would have to encounter more bosses and people would care about killing them neatly.

It would also allow you to get as many BH comms as you want in a day, which is something that I doubt the devs really want to do (since, you know, they attached the BH comms to a daily quest rather than the basic reward for completing). If the devs don't want players to skip bosses, it's not like it's exactly outside of their capabilities to force players to do so explicitly (requiring all bosses as part of the FP quest, not just a few).

I dont understand how you guys group with 3 other people you have NEVER seen before and expect things out of them.

Clearly, anyone who joins your group is obligated to pull every boss and do every bonus boss because this content hasn't been out for more then 6 months. Clearly, since the tank and heals joined your group, they are your tour guides of the starwars galaxy and responsible for your gearing of your character....


This thread is redic, run the flashpoints and perhaps ask people politely before the first pull if anyone is intrested in Bonus bosses/non speed run.

Personally as a fully campaign geared tank, i enjoy the occasional full run of a flashpoint, its fun and im getting to help someone see content. Waiting at whatever boss and not skipping it and demanding people cater to you is kinda rude too.
