That was my exact point... then people turned it into... "Learn to play, noob."

I've done the fight in 7 minutes which I believe is the shortest time. My point is this ONE tactical flashpoint should NOT have a fight that takes longer than most ops bosses. As stated the other two fights take about 5 minutes at most... why does this one have to be longer?

So basically, you are ranting, and crying for a nerf...on KDY of all places (still find that hilarious) for what amounts to 3 or 4 minutes of extra time it takes to down the boss. I mean it is so sad, it is funny. I can almost understand people asking for a nerf on ToS or Ravagers with screwy mechanics and bugs, but KDY....Really?

What is KDY for? Leveling. It's not there to refine people's skills at the game. So why must it have an overextended boss fight compared to the other two in the thing?

The correct answer is to fill up the weird people in Group finder thread.
But second point is spot on

You've ducked my questions twice, now.

I'll try again.

You assume the fight is slow because it was designed that way. But others can do it faster than that. Why not come to the forums and ask for tips and advice on how to speed the fight up?

I know how to fight it. I cannot control the other 3 people!

How can you be so sure?

I've never had a 9-minute run on Modo, and I've run it with plenty of derps.

If you're such the expert on this fight (as you seem be to implying) why wouldn't you give the others advice? Are you just looking for a faceroll experience? Do you even talk to the other players in the group at all?

Looking back in this thread and I see this:

Why must the leveling experience require absolutely no player skill whatsoever? If that's what you're interested in, then go run solo content at > 6 levels over recommended. You won't have to refine your skill at the game at all.

But group content? I believe that SHOULD require some level of coordination, cooperation and at least a modicum of competence. If someone fights Sairisi for 20 minutes, it's not because the developers gave him too much HP, it's because the players never figured out to dps the droids at the same time. As soon as they figure it out, the fight goes from a drag to a win.

There's probably something similar happening with your fights with Modo.

If you don't think KDY isn't JUST for leveling, then you, my friend, are a lost cause.

Why else would it be for levels 15-54? Why doesn't it give almost a full bar of XP when you run it?

Yes, I have told people to man the kolto stations... stay out of getting stunned, etc. Doesn't mean they do it.

All I am asking is that it be on par with the other two boss fights. 5-7 minutes. Yes, I am whining over 2 minutes. It's just moronic for it to be any different than the other two.

"Lost cause"? What's the heck is your cause, anyway? "Eliminate all skill from the leveling process?"

You've taken one of the easiest flashpoints in the entire game, and started arguing how one of the boss fights takes to long and needs to be nerfed.

Then, other people respond with how it doesn't take them that long, but this doesn't pique your interest even a little bit. No questions from you about how to run it better. Never asking for advice. Never ONCE considering that it might be within your grasp to make that fight run better without Bioware hitting it with the nerf hammer.

Lost cause as in it's a lost cause to talk to you. Why? You came on here like some Tommy Tough guy and said "learn to play"

I know how to make it last 7 minutes. Don't get caught in the red. Don't get hit with his knockback. And dps to the best of your abilities that you have at the time. It still takes considerably longer (2 minutes) than the other two guys, no matter how you want to look at it. People turn it into an e-peen thing. "Oh you suck if you can't do it faster than me". It's ok. I expected it. All I know is EVERY SINGLE TIME I go into that flashpoint, the whole group MOANS about how Modo sucks. Now why would that be? Maybe because it IS the longest fight of all the ones in the flashpoint. Is it too much to ask to make it on par with the others? I guess so for you as you bring up the "nerfhammer". Nerfhammer would make it 3 minutes with no strategy at all.

Thank you for your continued interest in my post.
