Op's funny.
I like those kind of people with the single-player game mentality on an MMO. Thinking that they'll just have to pay once for ALL future content no matter how big a chunk of new content that is...

I like those people who are so fast to forget dev stated subscribers won't get charged for makeb. But i guess i'm in the minority of people for whom word still means something. Oh well i guess world is heading in direction where what comes out of persons mouth is worth as much as what comes out of their backside and majority people are actually fine with it.....

It's not about price is about principle, they keep on promising us stuff then keep on backing out, it's infuriating.
This is simply not true. They were always very wishy washy about expansions. I remember them saying they didn't know if they were going to charge subscribers or not. 10 bucks doesn't seem to bad to me. But then again, if it ends up not being worth it, they they will have a problem on their hands.

First statement was subscribers won't be chrged. Then it became "wishy washy"....

Strange, other MMOs I've played haven't charged subscribers for such a small amount of content. Free players, sure. Subscribers, no.

That is not much. Live with it.
You haven't been here long if you can't remember before the F2P nonsense.

Yes, before all the F2P cash grab went down, we were told Makeb would be free. To be fair, they have taken everything that was going to be in their big fall expansion and are slowly dripping it out in the guise of a "six-week content cycle".

You want to charge for an expansion, make a proper expansion. A single zone without even a continuation of the class quests in it? That the sort of thing that they should be putting out as part of their regular content cycle.

I guess EA have worked out MMO players will pay extra for everything now.

I'm sorry, what am i paying 15 bucks a month for again? This company is really, really starting to aggravate me. Why is it a company like Trion is able to do so much more with 15 a month than a mega-corp like EA? It's because EA wants to nickle and dime us, and they dont.

Makeb is not enough for an expansion. 15 bucks a month is suppose to include content updates, but all of our damn content updates are being turned into cartel crap and paid DLC! i am really, really reaching my limit with this game, RAPIDLY.
