To say I am intrigued would be an understatement.

Is this related to Makeb?
Probably same as section x authorization. When Makeb is released subs will get the content for free and f2p players can purchase authorization in the store. Authorization is a consumable that goes into your inventory looks just like this. I'd just keep in mind datamined files can sometimes be months ahead of actual release so while It's going in it could be months out.

Indeed.

Don't let the people on the forum that hate everything about this game temper your common sense. Expansions are the key to growth in AAA MMO's. SWTOR will have expansions, in fact there's even a quote from Damien Shubert, Lead System Designer, that they are working on an expansion.
In that case, I know it's not dumb to hope for an expansion. And I am! I recall that quote, but I suppose fear about the status of the game has been getting me down.
What I'd like to see in SWTOR:
-World Dynamism (NPCs that interact, environments that are not static, weather)
- Pazaak and other cantina/social games
- Expanded space combat

It's kinda of interesting if you look at the other games that the people that harp on the game always point to and how they are doing relative to SWTOR. Call me crazy but those others games do not inspire success. As bad as people claim the game is it is still above these other popularly discussed games:

This is the information we have to go on. You can debate the validity of the info but it's all we have otherwise it's all opinion based. http://www.mmodata.net/

Per EA (and we'll get an update at the end of the month) SWTOR has between 1million and 500k. Of course people immediately gravitate towards the 500k mark.

Star Trek Online has less than ~60k players.
Eve Online has ~350k players.
LOTOR has ~250k players.
Rift has ~250k players.
SWG had under 30k players before the sunsetting announcement.

The outliers is of course WoW with over 6.5 million subs.

So the moral of the story here is that SWTOR is better off than people are willing to admit. With F2P they can further stabilize the game and an expansion could easily grow the population.

It's at worst the #3 MMO in the western market right now, and #2 if you consider it among the sub/F2p model games.

Chapter 4?? Ok, that's actually exciting. I've been waiting to see confirmation that we'll have actual story continuation soon. As long as this is a legitimate Chapter 4 that continues the different class stories and doesn't mash them all together, I'm very very happy with this.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Wasnt the cap going to be lifted from 50 to 55? Would allow them to "reset" all the end game armours and give people more carrots to chase

That is what GA said.
