Well they better add more stuff if they do that because right now level 55's get only 2 ops and 4 flashpoints.

Can you not check the level of the people in the group before you accept the que? If you don't like the level why accept.

They should be allowed to run them if they wish and maybe using group finder is the only way they can do it. They may not know anyone to run them with.

It's not like they are hiding the level from anyone.

I totally agree, if you don't like the group, decline the GF screen. Besides, many people get to 55 in Voss/Corellia (I did on my last toon, my jugg tank) and may not have all the makeb mods on their gear, so a few runs on fps like D7, Battle of Ilum or even false emperor may be in order. Besides, I don't think is that easy to do SM Kaon, or Lost Island even with 2 55s.

And consider this: On Ilum you have to go through the Battle of Ilum and false emperor fps. Do you actually expect that people have to go through the HM versions? It's bad enough to do Foundry HM just to get the HK piece.

Of course, OP don't see this since he don't have RotH Expansion. The people who should be stopped from doing the SM fps are the people with gear over 63, but many fresh 55s actually don't even have a single piece of 58, let alone 61 and over stuff.

I did it a few time while leveling my tank, especially after some non enjoyable experiences such as the level 55 healer dpsed his way along not healing me until i beg for it, level 55 player skip the bosses while I needed to gear up, etc.
The problem was when I queued again, I fell on the same group (looking for tank).

They are adding two new flashpoints in 2.3 and 2 new ops in 2.4

I finished Voss at level 55 because of double xp. Still with 58 mods. Needed to do some of the SM FP to get the rewards for the campaign chestpiece and mainhand. Sure, I could straight away aim for the basic gear but why rush. It's not like there's a level 60.

Again, there are people out there who didn't do those FP's so why deny them? Buy the expansion so you can move on or organize your own group.

I really don't get what 55's are doing in normal storymode flashpoints. (Daily's) Ya I get that single tiny minor point. Other than that. No.

They're game breaking and simply ruins alot of fun for other players out of several reason!

1: If there is 2 lvl 55 dps'ers- It WILL be difficult for a 47-48 tank to keep the threath. Considering he only got one guard. How is that game breaking, you ask? Well, that tank is kinda not needed at this point, out of reason 1 and 2 combined.

2: Any lvl 55 can ignore the game mechanics completly, as they do not take much dmg considering the level difference.

Basicly, you're getting carried through it, it's a lullaby for the 55's and they're simply making that flashpoint run a complete boredom.

I sincerly ask, that you consider, to remove the option for a lvl 55, to join for any normal 47-50 storymode flashpoint.

I really can't see the need for it, besides those 10 commendations a day, but sorry guys. To bad.! Eventually, one day I will get Rise of the Hutt cartel, so this idea will affect me aswell. But hey, I'd bored my self to death if I should run a flashpoint as a tank, where I wouldn't even need a healer and I can set my head to autopilot.
Can't believe this is happening.

1) as a 55, most likely the gear in SM FPs is, to them, redundant. Hence most likely more gear roll for you lowbies.

2) Wow, people are really moaning about having easy blue milk runs of flashpoints? wut?

3) the reasons 55s do those are: 8k for the flashpoint itself + 8k for daily sm flashpoint +12k for emerging conflicts 5, classic comms from the quest and planetary comms from the group finder thingy which people use for upgrading companions in rakata, or for stuff to send to alts.

There.

i'm sure that if bioware were to change the system, it would probably be scaling the HMs to 55, not removing the ability for 55s to queue for them.

they added all of those achievements for doing the old flashpoints on SM and HM

but since scaling them to 55 would cause a lot of problems as well (people who didn't buy makeb won't be able to get the HM achievements, for instance), i doubt that they'll change anything at all.

Not a good decision... it takes long enough to get a group for directive 7, battle of illum, false imperator SM already.
Recently I did Corellia and final class quests and leveled 48 to 50, without a 50 SM queue pop , as a healer no less!
