And yes, my gear is far beyond needing black hole comms.
And I'm going to root you out and vote kick you if you make me watch cinematics for a flashpoint I've done 50 times already.

You people who play the flashpoints over and over again need to get a life or buy some new games. Playing SWTOR obsessively is clearly not a good use of your time.

If, as some have said here, your time is so valuable, WHY ARE YOU RUNNING THIS STUPID FLASHPOINT AGAIN? If you just want to skip all the cutscenes, then you obviously are not playing to enjoy yourself, and if you aren't playing to enjoy yourself, then I wonder why you're playing at all.

Most of the flashpoints are the same flashpoints we did while leveling. When you do them again with alts its not unlikely for people to have done them many multiples of time. The flashpoints, outside of 2 of them, have all been there for almost a year. So get off your high horse and stop telling people what to do.

Because you get BH comms for doing a hard mode flashpoint each day. Until you have full black hole gear, you have a very important reason to run those flashpoints over and over, assuming you want to raid.

The flashpoints are fun, but watching the cut scenes every time is sheer lunacy. I enjoy the boss fights. And I agree people who skip the last boss on Taral V are shmucks. But spacebar is going to be an important part of the game until Bioware decides to stop encouraging people to grind those flashpoints for gear well after they hit 50 and get columi.

Black Hole comms is the answer you seek.
A better fix would be to remove to BH comm carrot from these, that way, only people interested in running these will apply.

It is really simple: if YOU want to spacebar through the converstations, do so and the wait out the "Waiting on Group" message.

Simple.

Don't impose YOUR preferred style of play on others. Sure, YOU'VE run that FP 50 times but it might be someone else's first time there.

On a side note:
YOU might also want to consider that not everyone is there just for the commendations and that some people are still gearing up. So next time you want to skip a boss, ask first and don't just run past. (I've run into groups who've never fought certain bosses because they've always just ran past them in other groups and then when we do them they actually get a gear upgrade...)
If you seek answers, you must always ask questions. - Master Vandar Tokare.

[Suggestion] Add another Blaster Pistol with the "A-300 Heavy Sonic Needler" model = DONE!

- BH comms, which can kit your alts as soon as they hit 50.
- BH comms, which will buy Campaign armorings soon.
- BH comms / Gear for a guildie.

I listed 3 valid reasons for why I would play a FP for the 500th time. You only got "cos I don`t wanna spacebar".

Use story mode. Play with this attitude and I`ll ask you once. I won`t ask you a second time...

Again:

Storymode: STORY and no cinematic skipping
Hard Mode: Farm, grind, challenge, should be done in the shortest possible time frame.

Queue up for storymode if you don't want to skip. And, obviously, if you're not skipping then it's likely your first time in the flashpoint. You SHOULD complete story mode to have an idea of the fights and some mechanics before entering Hard mode.
