After finishing both FPs and story I found the experience to be quite anti-climactic, considering that we're invading/retaking the seats of power for both Sith and Jedi, I expected something a bit more epic. The Flashpoints didn't have anything to offer, it was just in the way of quest completion.

Crappy loot and unimaginative FP-related vendor armor design aside (Seriously, two identical sets with differing color variations and ugly to boot? That's what we have dyes.) All I got from this (Empire side) was some lame foreshadowing and Lana the animated barbie doll, I'm quite sure she's the most plastic looking model I've seen so far.

Combat shadows are totally worthless against bounty hunters, ops, and sorcs. Thanks guys.
I would rather have the armor rating increase we have now any day than have heals and be spiky as a tank

The flash points are only a prolog of the overall story line. They are design to introduce you not tell you the full story yet

I'm aware, I would have liked the full story but just a prologue is fine.
This on the other was like reading the first page of a book, there was no depth and the flash points which should be important events felt like trivial "clear out those guys over there and come back" quest.

That was one short prologue. I mean, that was basically Ch. 1 interlude's Revan series with a bonus "quest" tacked on.

Yeha this is only the beginning I'm very happy for this patch and I can't wait to know the new narrative development
Yesterday when I did new fp, I observed more flexibility on the flashpoints with enemies that attack their own initiative.

Thanks for the new flashpoints, BW. It's good to have some new content. I also like the outlook for some new stories. So far, there is not much story told. I am very surprised how little outcome there is actually for invading e. g. the Sith Temple on Korriban. I mean, this is a huge thing, right?

The ultimate climax is the conversation with the final boss on Tython. That was epic stuff he was saying. Who would have thought that?! Nobody could foresee the things he told us. Who wrote this conversation? Brilliant.

[Somewhere within the second paragraph I hid some sarcasm. If you played the FP, you can spot it easily.]
