This means Group Finder will match the first four players it finds, which translates into drastically shorter queue times, especially for DPS classes.
Unless of course you are a tank or a healer.
This does not shorten the queues, it just averages them out, so tanks and healers will no longer get nearly instant queue pops but will have to wait just as long as DPS. Queue times for Czerka SM flashpoints already feel too long when you are used to instant pops.

I second this. A harder version of the flashpoint would be great.

Now that would be a disaster and one of the few reasons I'd stop playing , as it has been mentioned before, abandoning the holy trinity would create a Guild War 2 like gameplay and the "Flashpoints" in GW 2 suck.
Why do DPS have to wait as long as they have to? And granted it sucks , but it's simple bad DPS (pulling before the tank does, not killing the low mobs first , not giving the tank time to get aggro etc.) leads to annoyed tanks and healers. Bad healers annoy tanks just as much as DPS do therfore tanks tend to cue only for the quests and then they're done instead of doing a couple of extra rounds. It's basicaly a home made problem *shrug*

I totally love the idea of randomized scenarios. I don't know whether the level/role neutral idea will take of or not, but randomized scenarios is a must for all future FPs. It'll be so much more fun not knowing what comes next.

If only you guys would put this much effort into some new assault maps for PvP.

From what I have seen, there is only a chance for lvl 53 gear to drop from the final boss. So this flashpoint is more for getting credits and reputation and not for gear.

Yea, This seems to be mostly a leveling flashpoint then anything else, though hopefully they add a HM version later

Do you want a good example of a role neutral mmo? GW2. Guess what evry1 is running there? A dps (zerker).
SWTOR is an mmo with a holy trinity, it should matter.
The longer queue times for dpsers is not role related problems! Why in WoW they dont have long queues? I guess you can answer this question by yourself.
