Obviously, no one can answer that question except Bioware themselves. But for the sake of discussion, lets hypothetically say that this is going to be standard practice going forward. An expansion is released and requires a purchase for a certain amount of time, and then later it is released as free for subscribers. If that were the case,

People will claim one thing (to make a point) then do something else entirely.

There is no accountability.. so they will claim they will not.. then run right over as soon as presale opens and buy it up.. then when it goes free later on.. complain.

If I am actively playing an MMO. I always buy the expansion as soon as it is for sale.

If you are going to say what other people will do and disregard their own "voice", then I will do the same for you. I say that next time an expansion comes out, you will NOT purchase it and will wait for it to become free, even if you say otherwise. Deal?

You are an adult.. you are free to do whatever you want.

Sure I can. But what I want to know is, since you apparently dont mind telling other people what they "really" think and disregarding what they actually say, are you equally fine with other people doing that to you? If not, then there seems to be a slight double standard to your reasoning

If it has something that interests me i will buy it, maybe even preorder. I'm very happy with my hutt trainer, and have gotten many hours of entertainment out of the Makeb expansion.

I absolutely will.

If BW had said up front, this will be available to buy in March (or whenever it was) or free in September, I would still have bought it.

How many people wouldn't have? Honestly? Imagine all these months without 450 crafting, stuck at 50 doing EV and KP until you go mad??

I was kind of annoyed about this, but I'm over it. I would still have paid $10 or whatever it was for 6 months of early access.

I will likely buy them when I want them...I will not have whether or not it will be free in the future effect my choice.

If I did that in normal life I would never buy a phone.

I'll definetly buy it if it has another level cap. Otherwise, I will only buy it if it has content I want to play. I don't do raids, and only PVP when I'm bored. If it's a little light on story content, I'm happy to wait until it is given away.

I have no problems with it at all.

And to correct you... since you misrepresented what I said... I simply stated that people will say one thing and do another. It's human nature. It's not evil.. it's just something people do. They will use your poll to make a statement, and then proceed to do as they please when an expac pops. Why? because they can, and there is no accountability or consequence if they do.. so they will do as they please.

Please peddle your accusations elsewhere.

Are you including yourself in that statement? If so, then anything you say becomes meaningless. If not, do you somehow think yourself superior to the people you are talking about?
