Yeah tell me about it, in a flashpoint I was KICKED by two others because I did not skip.

Thanks BW. Great concept really.

Never played a damn flashpoint again, you can keep it.

Little secret: When peeps are complaining that "someone" isn't spacebarring, slow it down even more by complaining yourself, in vivid detail about the same thing. They'll think you're on their side and won't kik you.

u should solo it, don't group, don't post it.
English is not my first language, still working on it.

Not to be insulting, but what else would it mean? Hang out in the dock chatting rather than getting through it (convos or not?)

I'm not a fan of the spacebar option. I happen to enjoy the story, hearing all the different reactions to the choices and hearing the characters voices. I do skip conversations in fp's though since I got the boot once for listening to a conversation in a fp that I had never done before..and yes I did state that I had never done it before. I did have a nice group doing foundry though, a guy yelled at me to spacebar and I told him it was my first time, he apologized and told me to enjoy the story.

My general experience is that most players are like this. I might just be lucky though.

there is often one person who watches the 9001 scenes and choices in the esseles while three people ask for spacebar. Usually the one person who isn't spacebarring needs gear and is being carried through the hardmode by others.

Now I don't mind watching the final scene of a hardmode but watching every scene in esseles should be done on your own time.

It sounds like you don't enjoy video games very much.

The thing is, spacebarring is NOT the norm. YOU didn't do it on your first run (unless you were bullied, you dont see power in bullies, do you!?) So why do you shout at someone who is trying to enjoy the story? It doesnt matter how many times YOU have run it, you don't know how many times other players have experienced the story line.

Don't get me wrong, I'm in favor of spacing IF the group is happy with that. If someone asks "hey guys, mind if we spacebar this one?", 99% of the time, I'm happy to do that. Even on my first runs, I can catch the story up another time (running it twice with other ppl.)
The ones who annoy me are the ones (without prior communication) who say "FFS Spacebar!!!" You do not dicate the FP run, YOU are one of four and you will damn well wait for the dialog to unfold. By saying "FFS Spacebar!!" you get a one way ticket to everyone else watching the dialog slowly, taking in every word (re-reading the subtitles) and agonising each and every input choice. Be polite, You'd be suprised how often people will be happy to at least cut the "we'll stand here and drink tea, you 4 go and do the hard stuff" dialog actually are.

That said, by the time you hit HM, I do understand the frustration of people when someone refuses to spacebar through a single sentence of the story. There have bee nthe climbs to the 50 mark, there have been story modes. Now, yo uare on HM, you know the story and are aware of the situation presented in this FP. IF someone asks (politely!!!!) skip it. By this point, you should know the story.

However, if someone TELLS you to skip it, kick back and enjoy the voice overs, but consider your responses VERY carefullly.

If you don't want to skip then go STORY mode or dont use a group finder. HARD is for gear grind, challenge and runs in the smallest possible time-frame. Stop abusing the group finder by queuing HARD for story (not to mention clueless recruit-geared ones joining for LI HM) and you won't be getting kicked. Most players want to grind their dailies quickly and they've seen the flashpoint thousands of times. NOBODY will tell you to skip in a story mode flashpoint so off you go over there - like all of us did early on before all the free recruit gear and stuff. Also, anyone who is urging to skip in story mode is a jerk (unless it's some farming run) and he deserves some proper dis.
