Idea for Possible Future Operation

If the largest Operation (Raid) is 16, I thought that it might be cool (as I have never seen it done which is not to say that it has never been done) to split up the group into 4 man squads.

For instance. The operation objective might be nothing more than to commandeer (nautical term) another ship or to protect a ship your group would start the instance aboard. It might include 1 4-man team assigned to repel invading troops, another 4-man team to fight a security force to capture or recapture the bridge, another 4-man team to secure engineering, and a final force to fly in space to battle enemy ships. Hell, you could go the full monty and have one of the teams on the surface instead of in space (reminds me of a movie, unsure of which one... oh well).

Just a thought. Good hunting!

That's not a bad idea if they get together in some parts. But if they are allways splitted, it's like 4 separated flashpoints XD.

Yes, the throne of the four winds... But it wasn't what he is saying. In that fight, they're rotating. He say that to complete a operation, multiple objetives has to be done, but each group take one objetive separately...

PD: Stop comparing with wow, pls... This is SWTOR

lol... LOTRO had a few raids like that.. the group split into 3 and in order for 1 group to proceed one of the other groups had to complete their objective.. but I like that idea for something like this.. I just wish the space aspect of this game wasnt so limited..
Now im not saying that the whole world is full of stupid people..
All im saying is lets remove the warning labels off of everything and lets see what happens

Since it's early I'm having no amazing ideas right now. To start it off though, I'd like to see maybe a PvE operation where let's say the empire is sent to invade a Republic outpost, but on a large scale and eliminate a high profile leader. The reverse of that could be the Republic defending or launching a counter assault. I think this would work in later expansions as the war progresses and becomes more "intense" yea let's go w/ that. Probably wont work though b/c random important people missing from cities would be kinda weird for the game initially, but as the conflict heats up people will start to die.

just to add to my original thought, there could be objectives that each group would need to accomplish in order for other groups to proceed. I swear this sounds like a movie, maybe it had muppets? whatever, thanks for the input!

SWTOR is an MMO and the -most- successful MMO was WoW so of course there are going to be -a lot- of comparisons. They're the same genre. I don't know why you and others get so butthurt at the comparisons. Wow was a good game, in it's prime.

The Thorim fight sounds a lot like the fight the OP was talking about, the group would split into two and one group would stay in the arena and hold off waves of enemies while avoiding thorims casts while they other group would loop around a hall way, looping up and around, killing enemies on the way, before knocking Thorim into the arena and then jumping in after him.

A good example would be:


Group A: 4 playes
They keep fly around a battle station, taking down enemy fighters and destroying turrets

Group B: 2 player
Those 2 players would sneak inside air pipes to sabotage something. Must handle defense mechanisms on their path and patrols

Group C: 10 players
The major assault group lands on the station and engage the enemy deep inside the battle station.

Group A must be alive all time to ensure groups B and C get inside and also return in safety to mothership...
