This is really awesome innovative design from BioWare.

Levelling DPS sux when you can't get a flash[point to pop. This enables higher frequency of pop's as well as making it a fresh(ish) experience each time.

Awesome work! Hope to see more of this in future releases

Actually the queues in WoW can take up to an hour plus.
even when using raid/group finder.

I like the fact that as an Imp you get to fight Pub NPCs and vice versa.

Finally a bit of WAR flavor. Ganking 3rd parties was getting a bit old.

Big thumbs up for that.

I hope this approach also makes it way into Operations. Mechanically wise they can be identical but why not have bosses skinned and voiced differently, as republic/empire generals/war droids etc. etc.

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.

If they converted this game to totally role neutral or implemented cross-server FP queues, I'd be gone. This new FP sounds like an awesome idea for leveling characters and even better as a future HM.

I hope they fix some of the models in the republic flashpoint before it comes out because they are extremely bugged.
And Bioware fix the Republic hanger please!

I am really loving this refocus on the Empire vs the Republic. There should be more operations and flashpoints that focus on this.

I don't know where you been but I was on my leveling dps the other day on Taris and i was queued for 3 hours and not a single pop. DPS is harder to get because there are not as many tanks and healers as they are dps.

And the reason you don't have long times in WoW cause WoW has cross-server queues, TOR doesn't. But a flashpoint like this is desperately needed for dps that is leveling because unless your grouped with a tank or a healer you are going to be waiting for quite a while.

I agree I want to see a Operation where it's republic vs empire. They have shown with this flashpoint that they can make the bosses mechanically wise the same but different based on faction. It will also make players roll on the other side to do operations in order to compete achievements.
