This is exactly why you can't buy it with Cartel Coins.

There is nothing stating that.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

I understand they will make more money if they don't allow it to be bought with CC. But if it costs (1500?) CC, and a subscriber subs for 3 months to save up the coins he/she has spent 45$ on subs for the game. Surely some slack needs to be cut here...

I'm not asking for a handout, I've been saving up my CC for content updates and now I can't use them. I would give up the 5 day head start if they sold the 'expansion' on the Cartel Shop.

How many people said we would be able to use our CC for content?

Now to those people I say... How come I can't pre order this right now with my CC.

I'll wait for them to say "wait and see"

That is what we were told before.

That's a good question. You probably could. But it would have to wait until they update the CM. But then again, maybe not. I preordered on their site, doesn't really affect me either way. I wouldn't want to save up my CC anyways.

From current FAQ:

Can I use Cartel Coins to pre-purchase Rise of the Hutt Cartel?

No, you will not be able to pre-order the Digital Expansion with Cartel Coins. This Digital Expansion is only available for purchase on our website at www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com/buy.

preordering prior to january 7 - gives you 5 days early access.

I have a very strong feeling that they will open it up to cartel coin purchases after that, or as soon as it goes life. will cost same relative amount for subscribers (I'm guessing around 1k cartel coins give or take, which is how much you can get for $10)

You know, even if it can eventually be bought on the Cartel Market (if the Darth Hater site is to be believed), you know it's gonna go for so much on the GTN that only subs will be able to afford it.
