Good news, there is something similar. It is called warzones.

Not what I'm talking about. Don't be so close minded. I'm aware there are warzones. That's not what I'm talking about.

I'm sure well see hard mode if I didn't need the part drops or rep tokens, trust me, ( no complaint's ether ). i have no reason to run them expect for may be a weekly , if there is one . i haven't fully played with 2.6 yet .

But I agree this is a nice step in the right path .


Those that normally don't get to run with there level 50 friends can now .

I agree somewhat, dont hate me... I am still trying to understand it. Not talking about starfighter, but the flashpoint.

Its a good idea, each time we enter, be a different scenario. But... why? The trailer says "fight in the ground and fight in the air" cool... But, at least it could be a warzone...

They may add more features in the feature. The extra floor looks nice, more choices to travel inside the fleet, it looks spacy.... but... Before the update, I thought its a flashpoint, but its simplier even from czerka.

ps: maybe now its for small levels... I also made a walk around the room, just to check it out, I found a HUGE shield door... So they may add something in the near feature.

There is something very underwhelming about the new 'Tactical' Flashpoints. They play a lot more like 2+ heroics with about as much depth, far less than anything close to a flashpoint as seen in the original game.

Given all cartel packs we see it seems that new content is taking second place to the cartel market. With any new content such as class story or in depth flashpoints is too time consuming and the staff aren't able to devote the resources to it.

Not saying I know, but it is sort of a trial test for Bioware to see what works and how well. They may tweak it with harder npcs and better loot depending. They may do nothing.

If it just the one flashpoint then meh. I was hoping for a couple with the story continuing each one.

I agree with OP.

This is just a low budget production and a poor excuse.

5 runs and it got horribly boring.
Your story may not last forever; but it will exist forever.
