    • Once in Alliance Operations, go to the location in the south-eastern part of the map. (-99,257)

Was doing the new flashpoint and on the second boss when everyone died it would relocate us to a new spot and there is no way to leave the area. If you die you end up back in the same spot This will need to be fixed.

I second this. This bug needs to be fixed. (Also there is a bug when switching combat styles that it removes your mount ability, just relogging fixes it. But its a bug none the less.)
I love Star Wars.

Did the FP. First boss is meh to annoying. 2nd boss is actually the best thing of the entire FP. (But I fear for other non raider players, as they will be stuck and die to the amount of AoEs.) Bonus boss is RPS (and no loot btw). The stair ways to hell are going to get talked about in a negative way. And the last fight is meh/annoying.

Also "FOR HOUSE INROKINI!!!" 2.0 incoming. I can not WAIT for Fleet chats meltdown when this goes live. lol
I love Star Wars.

As a response to the spoiler stuff. Ok adding repeatable weeklys is a GOOD THING, and the upgrade boxes are good, but still meh because of RNG. Kinda seems weird saying "removing RNG!" and then just having more of it. Ok good that I can still get the armor achievements from Kai, it will just take longer. Thanks. Dumb an asinine, but thanks.

Also, with how convoluted the new gearing system is where you need a 8 paragraph essay to explain it, why not just keep the current system we have now? Especially since TFs are staying. Literally just add mods for TFs to a vendor and tokens to OPs for OPs players to the current system we have on live. Its that easy and simple and then it becomes the best gearing system ever because if gives players CHOICES which is always a good thing.

I thought the devs said "we want to simplify and make things easier for players.", which the current system is. This new one is convoluted, arcahic and punishing. That doesn't seem like "simple". Unless BioWare devs are changing the definitions of words, which I would very much like to see the Dictionary listing definition they are using.

(And remember Jackie, the disappointment, anger and confusion emotions I have are NOT at you. They are at the devs and the people making these choices and forcing them on us. Without feedback, permission, ANYTHING. That is who my anger is directed at, not you. )
I love Star Wars.

well, got stuck on the second boss. Same problem other people have, the respawn point seems to be unter the actual area of the FP. First boss was okay, nothing to special, the stack debuff was interesting but didn't do too much in Vet. Second Boss seemed very interesting, but well couldn't finish the fp

Hello everyone,

Wanted to let players know that this final phase of PTS will be coming down Monday, November 22, at approximately 10am CT. Should that change, I will update this thread.

The fact that this was the final phase does concern me a fair amount.
Hopefully all the combat styles are getting the same treatment and response to feedback that the Guardian got when 7.0 launches.
Fingers crossed at least

I was figuring they'd at least want us to take loadouts for a spin before shuttering things for now.

I logged onto the PTS this weekend, from scratch. Made a BH, selected Commando (hopefully to finally get to use a rifle as a BH)

You have a lot of work to do.
The character page WIP...is sad. Cant select titles to see if what I was hoping for was going to happen, such as giving me the title of Bounty Hunter instead of Commando.
Cant use the trainer on Hutta...since I'm not a real bounty hunter. Means I'll have to wait until I get to the fleet to learn skills.
Cant use many of the skills with a rifle properly.

I was disappointed overall with the experience, and didnt last long. I don't see myself playing after the next part of the storyline, and will be changing from paying for 6 months at a time...to 1 month every 6 months. to catch up on any storylines. This will save me $120 a year.
