Joint Ops

I'm curious, I like the ideal personally but I would like to know how the rest of the community would feel. Seeing that I have a Toon on both Factions and equally love playing them both, I would love to see Joint Ops one day for Galactic Conflicts for all the Operations. I think it would be pretty awesome to be able to jump on my Juggernaut and DPS along side some of my Pub Guildies, or vice versa for my Imp Guildies.

They could just make it where Group Finder was cross faction and the instance that takes you to the shuttle to go to the Ops could possibly take you to a neutral area where you can find Pubs and Imps grouping up, or looking for groups. I mean it's not completely crazy, look at Nar Shaddaa or Voss..it wouldn't be a crazy idea. It would certainly up people running Ops because they would have two sides to look for players. Any opinions?

I like the idea but only for new Ops that are threatening both sides enough where they must team up to defeat it. Not running the current Ops together.

The faction segregation is rather annoying from a game play stand point. It is the reason I have not got any 50 pub toons.

What is the point if I can't play with my guildys with them? Cross faction group finder, probably shouldn't happen but guilds should be able to use characters from both sides even if they are treated as whatever faction the ops leader is.

Good idea. Certain Jedi and Sith already have cross faction companions. And there's that Mandalorian companion with a Republic player.

These flashpoints could be joint operations:
Directive 7
The Battle of Ilum
The False Emperor
Kaon Under Siege
Lost Island

Non-flashpoint cross faction groups could be tagged KOS. "If you're a friendly, what is that Jedi/Sith etc. doing with you??"

Cross faction would shake up the game in interesting ways.

Joints Ops and FPs would be great.

For those that played CoX and remember the rikti invasion, and the introduction of pocket D, remember that the shared instances and warzone were freakin fun as heck. And brought the community together as a server not just a faction.

Used to love RPing in pocket D too

WTB new fleet. Pocket D Fleet >.>
Syasentas - 55 Operative
Syadestis - 55 Powertech
Syaseheth - 55 Assassin
SyasehethS - 55 Juggernaut (yea, same name with an s, so what, wanna fight about it?)

This is something I would like to see, and the CoX example is a very good point. When they did that it added allot of fun and new options to the game.

It would be easy enough to add in a neutral fleet, that joint ops/flashpoints could be launched from.

And with the current story line with the Dread Masters, they could work in the story aspect of it, since they are fighting against both factions.

This idea has been proposed a few times. Unfortunately it doesnt seem like the devs are interested.

You mean joint ops where I get to dismantle the PUB after yes?. That is about as joint ops as I would like to do,hehe.

To be honest, I quite like the idea :P.
