I was doing Operations with my guild tonight, and I started talking about how people on the forums are angry about RotHC. They asked why and I explained the reasons, and as I finished explaining them I realized how silly it all sounds. Needless to say we're all looking forward to it.

I certainly have points in which I would call it quits and I've talked about it with my GM and we're on the same page. But this definitely isn't it.

Makeb is NOT an expansion pack.
From the SWTOR game director himself.

Of course Bioscrooge hid him away in a closet and launched the cartel market since then.

It wasnt then, who know what they will be adding now, and if it is the same who cares its more content then a content patch usally has, and just because its digital download also doesn mean thats its no less an expansion, since i do believe they said that there wouldnt be a Boxed Expansion unless it was beyond "resonable expectations" . this could mean just to large a download file to expect people to down load. i.e. swtor it self.

Now if it comes out and it doesnt have the content to justify it being a expansion, then we can pass judgment, but with 3 months to spring and a possible 4 month window for it to be launched (since the calander year of sprin is march 20 - june 2013, and the finacial spring "Q3" is i believe is april to june.

So things change since June.. Like F2P for instance.. I fail to see why anyone would cry about this... You all wanted F2P.. That changed the game.. I think folks need to live with the consequences of what they asked for..

Were you aware that this was the 1 year anniversary for this game??? It is also the christmas season.. How about a little more cheer??

$55? Try $20. So now it's the EXACT SAME PRICE as the new expansion for SWTOR. LOL

But it comes with like 10 times more stuff.

Also, follow the "upgrade account" link on your battle.net account, it will tell you that if upgrade your account now you will receive 30 days of free game time.

Also they are running a special promo where you can receive vanilla, BC and wrath WITH 30 days of game time for $5...

You can literally buy all five games for $45 and it comes with 60 days of game time if you upgrade them one at a time, I should know, I just set this up for my fiance.

All five games for $45 comes with 60 days of game time by upgrading through battle.net

Buy JUST MoP with 30 days of game time $20.00

But if you can prove YOUR numbers are right then I'm sure you can with links or whatever, you're totally not just pulling numbers out of your butt right?

Not to mention you can't even purchase it with CC coins, just seems to me like another nickel and dime grab from your loyal fans.
In every MMO I've ever heard of...expansions ALWAYS cost money whether you are a subscriber or not. BW won't be able to keep producing new content if they don't have the money for it.

But in those expansions, dont charge for "new abilitys" that Current NPC's already have.

at :41, That "new ability". NPC's in Section X already have.
