Considering the players are bolstered I assume, for instance, if a level 50 and a level 15 are matched they'll get their respective XP without it being nerfed by having the other in the same group, as exists currently?

Sounds brilliant, really looking forward to it.

Do we know when 2.6 is going live?

Roll a tank, or complain loudly to Bioware to make tank gearing in the end game less painful so people are more willing to do it. Or make Flashpoints actually drop something useful after you're in 72+ gear, I haven't done a flashpoint on my tank in months because he's in 78s and there's literally no reward for it. 12 Ultimate comms for 3? I'm out of stuff to buy with Ultimate comms, why bother?

That and tanks and healers wouldn't be able to get a queue because going 4 DPS would get you through the FPs much faster than a "proper" group.

Most of the things about the new type of flashpoints sound great, except the role neutral part.

There are so many things they could do to fix que times for dps but role neutral has to be the worst choice. If the devs were half as good at coming up with new ideas to make the game better as they are at inventing new ways to dumb down mmos this game would have 10 million subs.

Sounds interesting enough, but the thing that pops in to my head are the czerka FPs that can be just facerolled without thinking at all(yawn... As my Sorc would say ) . The part about it being slightly different each time you play it is great thinking on the Devs part, manly because running Mando raiders for the 50th+ time for example, makes me want to pull my hair out(maybe just me tough). The GSF deck I couldn't care less about, but people seem to enjoy the pew pew in space so it makes sense to add it, to me at least. All in all I care more about the buff my Merc healer is gonna get in 2.6 then anything else

TL;DR Yay new Flashpoint! Role neutral? *yawn*. A Flashpoint that changes each time you play it? Hell yeah! GSF deck? Meh.. Whatever.. Waiting on pins and needles for the Merc healer buff

This is coming too late Bioware. Role Neutral flashpoints, mobs that turn your level when you hit them. If this had been out two years ago you would have never had to go free to play. Sadly now the game is mediocre at best and nothing you do will keep players from going to Elder Scrolls in a few months.

I wonder if this armor is the same that you see on the escort for the high mucki-di-muck at the end of the Republic Makeb mission series. I was just commenting to a guildie a few days ago that that set looked really nice.

Actually, it's February 4th assuming all goes to schedule. 2.6 coincides with the full release of Galactic Starfighter, which is Feb 4th.
