The video does suggest the space combat is on rails and not free flight as advertised

If you give away free ice cream, someone will complain about the lack of chocolate sauce and/or sprinkles.

Hm. I'm wondering if I should hope this will have voice chat like ME3 MP, or hope not. I know I'll be tempted to continually mutter: "I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar..." and that might get annoying to other players.

Some people expect too much and when things didn't live up to their expectations, it's normal to feel disappointed. I'm not defending anything or anyone here but I can understand why a lot of people feel afraid and unsure, as I can sympathize with people who have valid complaint. Sadly some people prefer to just complain at everything. Me? I appreciated what we get at the moment, and being upset over this change nothing at all. Although I had hoped that future content will be real expansion with the continuation of faction based and class stories.

I'm really looking forward to this expansion. Hoping for ships that fill different roles in combat. While I don't enjoy the current pvp action of swtor, I did come here from a space-based pvp game. I can't wait to see if this is anything like that game was because I loved it enough to play for over 2 years. I reserve my "good job Bioware"'s until I've actually tried it.

Two thoughts.

1. As this is their initial release of this type, I hope everyone tempers their expectations at launch. I think it will be great but I'm realistic and understand that this is a starting point: limited areas, limited battles etc. So lets temper our expectations and look forward to a great addition to the game.

2. So... should we start grinding comms and ship upgrades now? Will it be of any benefit? I can grind with the best of them and can get my ship up to par in short order if I know there is a pay off with regard to the expansion.

I agree that PvP on rails sounds far fetched and free-flight makes more sense, but I'm going to curtail my enthusiasm until I know for sure what it is I'm getting excited about.

To that point, there will not be any Space based PvE content with the Digital Expansion. It is only going to be PvP.

It made the hair stand up on the back of my arm. Consider me enormously excited. Add PvE side to it and I will switch to infinitely excited.

Kind of ironic that the, THE Arena patch was, in fact, 75% PvE patch, and the first true PvP patch is, well, SPACE!

But, as I said, I'm quite excited, nonetheless.
