I didnt see anything about removing that or the BH area weekly in the patch notes but I'm pretty sure that some official is going to claim that it was intended. Just like they did with the ec sm comms.

So remind me again, how is it now easier to earn BH comms?

No one said it is. The sheer number of BH Comms was just too much. People who had no skill or group to complete EC HM were all getting equally powerful gear because they run a few easy hard modes with story mode operations on top. It was unfair to raiders and their hard work.

Ridiculous. This gearing thing is complete fail anyway. They should make it easier for everyone to get proper gear not harder. I dont want to waste 3 months just to get proper gear, so I can do any a little bit challenging content. And 6 Bh comms for Raghoul Weekly, sheer numbers of BH comms, seriously??!! EC hm, raiders and their hard work, dont make me laugh

I find it to be fair enough, if u cant kill EC bosses you should not be able to get the gear that drops from it, or even something that compares to it.

You forget that not all ppl have the time to be around at raid schedules. Doesnt have anything to do with skill imo. And ppl talk like EC is rocket-science it isnt. Anyone with half a brain can understand the game mechanics and beat it by meeting minimum gear requirements.

You seem clueless as to what you are talking about. What level of gear is required to beat EC HM? That's right. Rakata. The gear level that needs NO Black Hole Commendations whatsoever. Anyone who want to earn gear can go to EC HM at that point. The system is dumbing down the whole progression right now, doing easy hard mode fp's earns you a level of access to the same level gear as someone who does EC HM. Right now what BW did is fix some of that so it's not as easy to earn Campaign level content by just doing Hard Modes - some stupid dailies. You just don't agree because it seems you can't (or don't want to) get a proper group that has what it takes to down EC HM, or you are just being grumpy because they took some of the candies you use to get every week.

Actually, I feel like the weekly rewards for BH and KP/LI were trivial. 14 a week on those? They still haven't removed daily group finder, so removing these 14 seems rather harsh. I thought the BH comms was supposed to be the incentive because there was no reason to do them on my Main as he was way past the gear needed for them.

Then they don't need 61 gear, period.

If this is indeed intended it's probably the worst move ever. I was in BH today and everyone there stated that there was no reason for going there anymore. Unless you're really hardcore about doing dailies. and all of the dailies every day, there's no need for ever going to BH. Might aswell do Belsavis/Ilum and get some mats out of instead, especially if you have archaeology or bioanalysis.

And who's going to do LI when you might aswell do some much easier FP? Not to say that it's hard now that it has been significally nerfed but there's still more room for more errors than in some of the tier 1 flashpoints.
