Allison did you draw the short straw or did everyone else step backwards when they asked for a volunteer.? At least I hope BW supply you with sufficient fireproofing!
Never argue with idiots, they just drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience

Just because an unlock/authorisation were datamined it doesn't mean it's gonna make it into the game. Also who would be insane enough to whine at an expansion pack not being available to purchase through cartel coins...?

So this is really a DLC since it will only be available directly from you digitally.

Some of your playerbase like to have tangibles tied to their purchases, but yes, those cost money for you to provide. Like the Life Day and Anniv push out, Another grab the $$ and run move.

You get back from the players based upon the effort and skill of what you provide. The current trajectory of SWTOR is not up. Hopefully you change it, I do enjoy the genre and the stories in this game. But everyone has their limits to how much foul stuff they can stand in.

/sigh seems this is the way of things then.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

And there goes the last straw. There is nothing currently in the cartel store I am interested in. If I can't buy expansions with what I've saved up there is no reason in me parting with any more money for this game.

Way to go Bioware! You really are as greedy as everyone thinks! This company has become such a farce of what it used to be that I am not sure I will even buy DA3...

You do realize that according to what other people here have said, that you guys actually stated in the past that subscribers wouldn't be hit with these costs for expansions because they were already paying subscribers...

Am I in error under that assumption, cause I seem to remember you guys saying that earlier as well (in writing I might add)?
