Favourite and least favourite flashpoints

Which of the flashpoints currently in the game are your favourite/least favourite and why? Have any of the recent releases replaced old staples?

My personal favourite for story is probably still the Esseles. Yes, all those conversations get a bit tedious once you're doing it for the 20th time, but having all those slightly branching story options is pretty damn cool the first couple of times.

For mechanics, Colicoid War Game really stood out to me with its wacky puzzles. D7 and Lost Island both have a great combination of story and epic boss encounters.

When it comes to least favourites, I don't have any flashpoints I actively dislike, but I thought that both the Czerka ones were pretty bland. Also, Red Reaper always struck me as a lot of wasted potential - such an interesting story introduction, and then there's never even any dialogue in the actual flashpoint. A missed opportunity IMO.

List of all flashpoints under the spoiler tag because there are enough that it can be hard to remember them all off the top of your head:

Black Talon Guild Underpants Run for the win!

Haven't done that in years. Those were the days, back on the old Bacca's Blade server (even though it was an empty wasteland I sort of miss it).

Of them all I think I enjoy the "jedi prisoner" series of FPs - Taral V and Maelstrom Prison on the Republic side and the Foundry on the Imperial side - the best. Probably because of the ties in.

As to least favorite, it's a toss up between Collicoid War Games and Red Reaper. While the first event of CWG is different than everything else, IMO it is not very interesting. And the opening area in RR is too prone to groups wiping; unless you have a group of patient veteran players chances are VERY good there will be several deaths due to being overrun.

First one is by faaaaaaaaaaaaar False Emperor. I love that one. The Foundry, too. I also admit that Red Reaper is a guilty pleasure of mine.

Least favourites are Czerka Core Meltdown, Colicoid War Games and KDY.

From the FPs added in 2.7, I prefer Korriban over Tython for both sides.

The only ones that makes my eyes light up now when it pops in GF is Lost Island HM because actual thinking is required, and Athiss because I love the atmosphere and colours

The Czerka two are lacking something but I can't put my paw on it

Where was that thread where people were voting for their favorite FP? Can't find it now otherwise I'd link it for the OP. Seem to remember false emperor and directive 7 garnering the most votes.

The new 2.7 invasion FPS are great, the Revan related FPS on both ends of the fence are great, the rhakghoul FPs are also cool. Despise Esseles, love Black Talon. Hate Colicoid. Love red reaper but hate the bugs. Don't like Athiss, Hammer, Cademimu, Mando Raiders, or the Czerkas too much. Malgus related FPs are also great.
