Don't see why people are so upset over this. You had to pay for expansions in WoW, and you have to pay for expansions for pretty much every game. And it's 10 bucks. Big *********** whoop.

Yeah..... Im gonna put a bet on this expansion not containing a fraction of what WoWs have delivered, drawing a comparison is not going to be favourable to SWTOR

Well boo, I bought all my lotro expansions with my Turbine points, Isengard and Rohan, going against the trends not always a wise choice, good thing it is only 10 bucks..
Do not dwell in the past, do not not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

I'm actually glad they decided this. I was going to save my cartel points up to buy the "expansion", despite telling myself that I would never again purchase an EAware product.

Now I won't be buying it at all, so my conscience is clear.

Is EA trying to lose another 75% of their player base?

Expansions=/=DLC.
Also, I can buy add ons on LOTRO with my TP.... Same with DDO. And DDO already give every DLC for free to subers, except the add on (1paying add on in like 5years ? That's fine).
I don't care it's just 10$ or 100$. That's just the EAWARE greed as reach new summit, and I just decided I wouldn't pay for it anymore.

I guess when the game finally goes Pay to Win which it has taken baby steps with space mission gear, cartel points will be useful. Right Now I can get everything from the market with creds instead of real cash. While not allowing the expansion to be bought with cartel coins is smart and will net more money, what a great way to further damage an already destroyed reputation especially when your game isnt growing.

Yep, this was the final straw. If they hadn't said something about subs not being charged for content, then I wouldn't be so pissed. But to purposely change it to make a quick buck..... unacceptable. As I said in the other thread: Why the hell do I pay a sub if I'm not going to get content?
