I always said Makeb is gonna be paid. Where did you see Bioware saying it's gonna be free to subscribers? That update better include a hood toggle.

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.
How do you know Makeb isn't enough for an expansion? Have you play tested it? Have you seen how many quests there are?

Uhrm I really don't see the problem...

9.99 dollars

I think you'll be alright without one McDonalds meal. If you like the game then support it, creating digital products is not free, paying your bills is not for free.

Support the game!
I'll make this completely clear, rookie--when you're in the field, what I say goes. Period!

Pre-Ordered.

I've made up my mind that I would be around until Makeb.

I support the game with 15 dollars a month plus my pre-order long before it was released, and my loyalty through the long stretch of no content updates. Furthermore, it doesnt matter what the price is, the MMO market has competition and i compare this product to it's competitors, whom currently are providing superior content updates for their subscribers at no additional charge, with expansions that include far more content than a single zone and a 5 level cap raise. This is content-update level stuff, but they want to nickle and dime us instead of giving us content updates like should be given to paying subscribers.

Again i point to trion, i'm not a rift fan but their developer is great, they have already published more than triple the content through updates than SWTOR has done in its lifetime, all major SWTOR content so-far after this will be additional-expense content. Hell, even STO is outpacing SWTOR now with a whole planet, guild updates, and more quests at no additional charge to its customers. Its bad when STO is releasing more content updates without charging than SWTOR...

5 more levels ? I'll do them in 3

Will it count all the xp I have already accumulated above the level 50 ?

I'm sure to be at least level 56 already

Anyway, i'm already equipped with lvl 58 to 61 gear ... Will we find lvl 100 gear in there ?

I do hope they allow us to purchase this with cartel coins. I really don't want to pay for a small expansion.

I'm still trying to find where they ever said it was going to be free at all. The last I heard they were undecided on if it was going to be free or not to subs. This just confirms that it wont be free. Hell... subs even get a discount on the price.
