More than 2 hours of content on a planet that was a content update as called by JAMES OHLEN. Hell you can get 5 levels on ANY planet right now. Its not going to be any bigger. An expansion is supposed to EXPAND on the game. Not give more of the exact same rehashed **** we already have. Btw look up Game Update 1.4. Thats what this really is. You know...before the Dark Times...of F2P and adding in what shouldve been in at launch.

well 1st i would say that if its based on planet scales we have now then atleast 3-4 planets, it should also include class story and new mini games. It could but is not forced to include a new race. They could push the boat out and put bh, agents, smugglers and trooper vareints on the other side with either a new starting zone or put them with there mirrored class's starting areas. it should also have its own new fset of flashpoints and operations specifically designed for the increased levels, not reworked old flashpoints bar the heroic mode of flashpoints and nightmare mode of operations being set to 55.


Another example of what would be a true expantion is the space game, a fully fledge space game not the on rails thing we have now. With guild ships and space pvp and pve.

What makeb stands for is nothing beyond a cheap money grab for what has already been stated as a none expansion patch content.

No one is against real expansions and im sure that people would pay good money for a real expantion and real expansions are a given to cost ontop of subscriptions.

to me any update that increases the level cap is a expansion

10 for subs , 20 for f2p, the price has nothing to do with pre-order or release.

I should have work in a videogame company !
alot of the DLC content for PS3 games would like word with you, they charge 5 dollar for a character costume etc, here we get a planet which we don't know the size of yet, is there a fp/op that goes with it? ar there cool things to do that they ahven't anounced yet? we don't know, but in my opinion the 8 euro isn't that bad seeing what's being charged for dlc content in other games.

So because other idiots do cash grabs we should be forced to sit through them? Good logic.

Yeah, now yet another F2P to save its life game.

As a matter of fact, the entire SOE library went F2P to remain alive.

Great example, that one.
