It sounds like tRotHC will act as a gate to future sub-content. Like 1.7-EVERYTHING will require the expac to play so anyone who doesn't buy will get ZERO new content from future patches. Anyone else think this is what they're planning?

Looking forward to it, especially the interested in what else you haven't revealed.
The idea of an MMO is that you get something for your $15 a month.. We really have not gotten anything of note in a year, just broken promises and bugs.

To then make us pay $10 for something that should have been released for our monthly sub?

cost me 6 thats 1 hour at work gg

I've been subbed to this game for 12 months and i've never had an issue with the game except for the amount of whiny children i have to put up with, but im used to that as wow has kids like that complaining about nerfs 24/7.

If anyone has a problem with 5.99/$9.99 you might as well unsub now and pay full wack later if your so angry about something that hasn't been released.

I can tell you why you didn't hear any whining about that. Because what you are saying is not even close to be true. An average TOR planet is something like 1-1.5 of an average WoW zone of any expansion. BC had 7 such zones, WotLK had 8.
Next time, get your facts straight before posting please.

Don't know about you, but i can't think of Tatooine or Corellia alone like of an entire continent, which consists of 7-8 zones being equal to at least 5-6 TOR planets.

In general, i was expecting to see something like what the community manager said in this thread, so not shocked or surprised. But still disappointed. Oh well, i knew what sort of company i'm dealing with.

There is no definition of an EXPANSION. It can be whatever the developer deems it to be.

Its YOUR job as a consumer to decide if the price and model fit your budget and "demands" for enjoyment.

EA has decided how to model the game. Accept reality or get out. Up to you.

Apparently you missed the 2 new operations, 2 new WZs, legacy upgrades, social item updates, Lost Island, social events...etc..

But yeah, our $15 went nowhere.

The 5 new levels will occupy players for a fair amount of time, and there's plenty of content to get you there (including a lot of stuff tucked away for the explorers out there). Keep in mind that this announcement is just the start as we approach Makeb's launch, you'll see more details about the content coming with Rise of the Hutt Cartel!
Sounds awesome! I can't wait.

Hearthfire for Skyrim was named an expansion/DLC and that literally just added building houses and a few adopted kids.

interesting philosophy. helped 1.5 million unsub, so guess ur on to something, looks like the theory is, "let's see how many we can get to unsub".
