Group Finder - "Old" operations

I'm sorry I'm a casual player..by casual im mean I don't like guilds and joining planned events.

I join the game and place myself on Group finder and now that I hit lvl 55, I can't join the "old" operations normally and have to find players. This is backwords thinking.

I don't understand why bioware just doesn't create a seperate tier of lvl 50's operations as the "hardmodes" are still there.

I don't just hang out in fleet /general for groups...I have stuff to do like dailies, gree events.. binocular quest etc.

Im sure the majority of players want this...maybe except the guilds and "elitist".

What's really odd about this whole thing is that they gave us the Classic Operations weekly mission for running the lvl 50 Ops on hardmode, which rewards elite and ultimate comms. This implies that they still want lvl 55s to run these operations, so I have no idea why we can't queue for them in the GF. It's especially strange because we can still queue for the lvl 50 FPs on both HM and SM. The end result is an endless stream of groups spamming gen chat on fleet looking for HM KP and EV.

I would really like to see the lvl 50 HM Ops added to the GF at lvl 55. Well, at least HM EV and KP. Even at lvl 55, I'm not sure I'd trust a bunch of pugs to make it through the mechanics of HM EC in one piece.

I think Level 55s should be allowed to queue for Level 50 SM Ops, too, though. We can go into the classic Level 50 HM FPs, why not the Operations?

You are wrong, majority of players do not want this. Why would you join old flashpoint using group finder when you can most likely solo it, unless of course it is Colicoid Games fp

GF will select flashpoint for you, if you chose many options it will not necessary select the one you wish. By reducing number of options GF does increase the chance of finding a group.

if you are level 55 or 50 lower level players may not wish to have you in their group at all, and why would they.

You want to play it find the group yourself, or just run through it alone.

You understand that you can already queue only for the ones you wish by deselecting them, right?

As for being able to find a group, how about a queue list, so you can see which FPs/OPs are being queued for, and you can join one that fits your needs. And being able to solo is easily fixed by a 'reverse bolster', e.g. just cap your level and abilities to whatever the flashpoints maximum is.

I'm in a situation where I was level 55 when I finished the main story and hadn't done any operations. After finishing Corellia, I figured I'd try operations next. Got the quests and opened group finder only to find that most were unavailable. I can still queue for level 50 regular flashpoints so why not operations?. I suppose my alternative is to find a larger guild. My current one has maybe 2 people on at any one time. I have no interest in running operations over and over. I just want to be able to try all the content that I paid for without a lot of hassle.

Step 1 -- go to fleet
Step 2 -- Type /1 LFG HM EV/KP for weekly, PST

So I'm supposed to stay on the fleet until I find a group instead of working on dailies or doing anything else beside waiting and waiting...?

yep.

this could be eliminated if chat channels where global. also with mmos that have such global channels a group finder isnt in them too. crazy isnt it.

Yes, conveniently enough you get into the instance from fleet as well, exciting right? Or you do it with people you know, you can 4-man HM EV/KP as it stands.

As/for dailies, I don't do em anyway, get my money from crafting and HM TFB/SAV clears. It generally takes me about 25-30 mins to get a group together, which is less time than it takes for my 55 HM FP queue to pop generally.
