For all we know it be one planet, the new race plus a few new skills for the level cap increase thats pretty stander even when everquest 2 did some expansions all it was sometimes was just a new dungeon and a few cmore quests, or just a zone of floating isles.

So OP where do you get that this isn't normal for expanding a game?
Sorry no new race. Cathar will not be in Makeb. It will be available on the Cartel Market soon™

Nah, we're just guessing here. Don't need to bring facts into a faith discussion.

Umm... You were saying?
4 new raids, about 7 new dungeons, challenge mode, countless other REAL expansion features. One SW:ToR planet doesnt even come close. ESPECIALLY since JAMES OHLEN already confirmed this was just a normal content update that all you fanbois are claiming is an expansion. Seriously just admit that they are nickle and diming us. It wont hurt you that bad. You might even be able to look at things objectively for once.

You must have meant that MoP also brought with it a new race, new class, new raids, and more. . .

Granted, you ended up not actually needing to purchase MoP for the race or class, though. That's right . . . you got it FOR FREE just for playing the game. Wow . . . imagine that!

Sorry, can't compare here to WoW. Not by a long shot. And I generally dislike WoW, to boot.

if swoop racing were in there as a mini game then may say ye bring it on but i think we have more chance of seeing hickman justify this then that.

Not necessarily. One planet already covers 3-5 levels (excluding Quesh and Ilum). They could add extra Heroics to compensate for the greater XP 'gap' post-50.

Was stated to be a content up date. Took a Hickman Effect to the Knee and is Now an Expansion.


Welcome, you have entered the...Hickman Zone.

Good question. Sadly Makeb wan't a expansion, before the Hickman Effect. Prior it was a content upgrade.
