They are directed to HM FPs because that is where the next set up upgrade gear is. While I realize you can also get it from a SM Ops, that might be intimidating for new players. Wanting to run the entire instance for upgrades and tokens for upgrades isn't unreasonable.

That all said players should try communicating their needs at the beginning and be willing to help each other meet those needs.
Getting a free set of Tionese is all the more reason to skip mini bosses bc thats what they drop, Tionese. If they want to see the story and kill bosses you run story mode for story.
Can I has more Sandbox?

As I said from my first post all he has to do is form his own group then he gets to pick what the group does, without the drama of the group finder. If you need a more detailed info on the process it's like so:

1.) enter this text into the chat: /1 LFM for full run of False Emperor HMFP (or what ever you want to do)
2.) wait till you have 3/4 or 4/4 of the group filled (majority vote this way)
3.) queue for the flashpoint in the group finder (able to complete the intro mission)
4.) profit

Maybe they want to fight a harder version of the other bosses too, or want the tionese gear for companions.

Communication seems to be a big problem for most people. Had a guy in BoI die three times in the exhaustion zone before he finally decided to say "lol i'm first time here, where do i go". Had he said that in the beginning of the FP, we wouldn't have wasted time and nerves on his festivities.

The game's story and all that are pretty cool. But if you've been through them once or twice and or you are pressed for time then you want to minimize your time in the FP just to get it done. I myself play every day for a few hours and love it. My recommendation is for you to find some like-minded people in game. On an RP server perhaps or at least a guild that is VERY laid back and likes to run FPs in the manner you're describing. Best of luck!

If I'm forced to waste time in HM, I'll quit doing HM. Killing anything other then 2nd and last boss is waste of time. They are only ones that drop Col.

Maybe OP shouldn't try and force people to play his way. He should learn to play as a group. Before I even go to the HM. I clear state I'm skipping everything I can. If you have a problem with this I'll find a new group. Everyone agrees I head there and we start.

BioWare should simply throw in an additional little toggle already in the groupfinder:

- Full Run (includes allowing people to view story, expected to complete all content, etc).
- Speed Run (skipping on story, skipping trash packs where possible, etc).

This way it's clear from the start in what sort of group you'll end up.
