Quite frankly, most people realize they should move onto another game by the time they get there and all of you should have too by now.

Nope. Game is based around cartel market now. Money Talks.

Do I think it's fine that it may not be possible to defeat a Nightmare difficulty raid on the first day wearing only the previous tier of gear? Absolutely. It was disappointing to beat S&V HM wearing just 63s in the first lockout. I would prefer progression content that takes time.

Why do I feel like bioware doesn't play this game?

The content is meant to be balanced for full 72. So what exactly do you mean here?

Where did they detail Nightmare balance? Is that an assumption because it drops 75 gear, therefore you're supposed to be wearing full 72?

I find everyone annoying because they all seem to be the best guilds in the world and expect to clear all of the new content in hours. **** and stop acting entitled. It's better hard and overtuned than the first group in "wins." I would prefer that every single fight in the game scaled with the difficulty of 16M EC NM Tanks. That was a great fight that everyone whined into nerfdom.

All new content must be clearable on the first day so we can get it on farm and abuse swaps between 8m and 16m to maximise drops for mains by filling in multiple 8m raids with undergeared alts instead of wasting our time having to wipe over and over and over trying to get the loot.

Bioware tricked us by making us think 8m nightmare live was going to be a row of loot piatas as it was on PTS.

That would probably be a mistake, since the bug on the last boss (that was reported repeatedly during PTS ) where his health jumps back up to 32% when tantrum hits, has now been reported on live in both story and hard modes. I'd wager that it's present in nightmare as well, making that fight also impossible.
Mal: Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
Zo: Big damn heroes, sir.
Mal: Ain't we just.

Yes, we did. After 4 hours on DG and several 30-40% wipes on Kelsara we called the raid this morning and came back tonight. Did HM DG, 4 shot NiM Operator and best attempt on Kephess was 4%, should kill it tomorrow.

Op9 and Kephess are definitely tuned well, we enjoyed those fights.
