I guess the vid was just a little peak to wet our mouths. Been subbing since the start and always found the game rather fun and adventurous. But gripe 1). I think there should have been more too that pre-order gear. And gripe 2). When are they going to fix the random DC'ing.Everytime I switch avatars are just the rare (but not as often anymore) DC that pops out of no where.

Well apparently you can choose to ally with the Hutts and essentially flip your faction the figurative bird so you should get a beret if you scream on the holonet "*BLEEP* you! Supreme Chancellor Saresh!"

I pre-ordered......

Hopefully new content will help ease the pain of the year long bugs in the older content....

Looks decent..... few questions
New level cap of 55.... does this mean new schematics for standard crafting which is limited to mostly Lvl49 with a few Lvl50 schems??

Anything new with companions as far as affection or additional abilities with these 5 new levels?
I don't have anything cool and cheesy to put here... I'll leave that to everyone else...

Not impressed.

I bet it will have more cartel crap to come with it. Instead of letting subscribers earn things they want. The Cartel is RUINING this game imo. The 3 or 4 Cartel things I would ever actually want are ridiculous prices on GTN. Why cant people just BUY WHAT THEY WANT using they EARNED and PAID FOR cartel coins? Prize boxes do not interest me...EVER!! If I cant buy EXACTLY what I want, since I EARNED THE COINS, I will not do it. Ever.

More stupid pointless pets/statues that just take up inventory.
More pointless titles.
More grinding and repetition.

No furthering of companion story or marriage. NOTHING!!!
No further Legacy perks (which makes even having Legacy anymore pointless)
No fixing of bugs that have been around since day 1

Yes, I am not impressed. It will just be more grinding, less fun.

I think the Preview looks Great ! I would like to see the memory leak get fixed that is causing people to DC. I know its there I watch my memory usage climb all day long on my meter until it gets up enough to finally shutdown my game. I run 8 gigs and DC much less then the 4 gig guys I know and my Brother with 16 gigs never has issue.I also agree with the previous poster on the Cartel Packs. I wont spend my money on them as I am a sub. coming up on the one year mark. If I want something I think as a sub I should have the right to purchase it with my coins not a chance to maybe get it 1 in whatever the odds are. I want an Overlords Command Throne but refuse to pay 2 million for it or God only knows how much r/l money for the off chance of getting one. As a sub I think we should get Cartel Item Purchase privileges and I think that perk would bolster subscriptions.

If the person does not buy or do not pre order the Rise of the Hutt Cartel he'll be able to play and get the level 55 or even for someone who is free to play will be able to get the lvl 55 among other bonus that is bringing Expansion ?
Dude. Based on all we have seen, the sole reason for lvl cap increase to exist is to force everybody who wants to stay involved with end game buy the expansion, no matter how thin in content it is.

Like three months to release and we still haven't seen an official confirmation of one one single flashpoint or op. Most artifical lvl cap increase ever.

I will have to agree that the expansion is simply another "zone" you pay for. Someone has to pay for those voice overs.....

I also agree with the statements about cartel packs.....etc. etc. Looks to me like what most games have done which is the XBOX style of "pay to win" ...expansions, gear, perks...all that you pay out of pocket for. It reminds me of MMO I played for 10yrs...when they went FTP and expansions you pay for etc.... they went offline within 2yrs.

Some people are so easily pleased.

Lot's of "It looks awesome" on here. What looks awesome? They barely showed anything.

BioWare still hasn't said anything other then constantly repeat the name of the planet and the word Hutt.
