'Cause you know, it's suppoused to be out in less than 2 weeks yet no one except die-hard SWTOR players knows about the upcoming expansion's existance

Doesn't even have to be any Blur CGI million $ cinematic bonznaza (no hope for that anymore), just whatever in-game footage you can slap together in Windows Movie Maker in 5 mintues. Would still be more more marketing than total ZERO it's been thusfar

I think the effort and money they've paid into getting a system nobody likes so far is the reason there's no trailer and a shorter story, bummer. Some kind of anything *Big/ Shiny/Substantial/Hype would've invigorated the members and attracted others. Yes your right, there doesn't seem to be many that even know, still chatter about Ex Members just now hearing/ reading about *Onslaught, "Tempest in a Test Tube".

If you don't see any kind of trailer, you know what horse Bioware isn't betting on.

Does Onslaught have much story? Ossus and Dantooine certainly don't have enough story to warrant it.
Unless Onslaught is going to have as much story as KOTFE or another major expansion, I don't see why they would create a trailer for it.

All I keep hearing about is gearing and PVP, with a few comments about pretty eye candy in location design, so I'll be surprised if there's much story at all.

Ossus and Dantooine were patches, where as Onslaught is an actual expansion. There is hope that there might be as much story as SoR had. I personally don't hold out much hope for a solid, consistent and enjoyable story, but that's where a teaser trailer would really help me along. I want to get excited damn it!

While I can genuinely appreciate the excitement many are looking for...

I really apologize..

But frankly I about a half step away from burnout right now !

I preffer them spending money on actual content I can repeat mutliple times instead of a movie I will likely watch once and forget it. Not that they've spend much on content last few years anyway...

BioWare is calling this an Expansion and there is a new story but it really seems they've put a good deal more effort into this system then into the story and SWTORs progression (The biggest reason people come here). Without much effort to do much of anything, splitting that effort is never a good idea, add to that devoting Most of that effort to create a "Totally New" system designed to slow people down. There was never a chance for a Trailer, much less any FanFare (advertising).

The trailer is going to be toons giving credits to a vendor....then losing. At some point, in the trailer, it will cut to a scene of a casino with people putting money in the slot machines. Then it'll cut back to the same toons still giving credits to a vendor.
