Is deactivating cover bar locked for FTP users?
I had no idea that was even possible. Honestly, though it was a pain at first, once I got used to it I rather like the cover bar. I've never liked the whole mind boggling swarm of buttons thing that most MMOs and some RPGs go in for. It gets very cumbersome and once you've figured out a good rotation, combat becomes very repetitive.
Seriously, the other day I ran a flashpoint and was able to be an effective healer while *barely* paying attention. I was running crew skills and reverse engineering in the middle of fights, while reading codex entries in between battles. Just being physically able to do that is not a good sign.
