We need some mechanic changes that will allow us to enjoy the game with so little players as we have now. New expansion will NOT bring new players to the game, it will only be bought by those who already play swtor. To make expansion worthwile it has to be more rewarding than base game. So - results: a portion of players will move on to play expansion. For first few weeks Hutt Cartel will be overcrowded with people, especially during early access period. Servers will go down more often than they do now. After that ppl will get bored and play just as they did before, except one thing - there will be more content to choose from, so players' population will be spread wider. Density of ppl wanting to play particular flashpoint or do particular world boss will drop.
The game world is already too big for current number of active players and it gets annoying. So what do devs do? They make the situation even worse. I know they should be commended for making good graphics, working hard on the story, but someone in charge needs a wake-up call. Making expansions won't help. I know expanding the content brings money and feeling of job well done but it's only illusion. It makes the game even more broken than it was before. Good try to repopulate the servers was going F2P, but it didn't work. This raft is sinking and it looks like EA tries to make as much money as possible before everything goes to hell. They should save this game, not try to make the best of it's demise...

I'm so sad, the idea behind swtor is great, but greatness ends on idea.

Come on EA, you've got so many employees, someone is bound to have some ideas on how to fix it. Any ideas that work for real MMO won't work here, since MMO = "MASSIVE multiplayer online" and swtor is everything but massive. Massive world maybe, but definitelly not massive numbers of players... Maybe ask those, who are fresh about it, I don't know, maybe guy who delivers pizza?
I couldnt agree more! The only reason I even started playing this game was because I loved KOTOR on Xbox. If only they could make it just as good as KOTOR...

Servers are empty? Down under perhaps, northern hemisphere is quite healthy however.

Eventually you guys will get merged with west coast servers and that will be that. You'll appreciate more content at that stage.

Looks good. I just hope you'll fix up the engine with this expansion. The game looks beautiful in this cinematic. It doesn't come to life for me because I have to have shadows and bloom off.

Even though I'm on an i5 2550k and 560ti overclocked. =/

This.

Maybe I glanced away during the part everyone is fawning over, but new scenery, while refreshing, isn't all that exciting. It looks like the same stuff weíve already experienced, and donít get me wrong, that stuff is great, but without listing the new features (ones that donít currently exist in the game) I donít see much to get really excited about with this trailer.

Looking forward to the expansion.

It would be great if the smuggies got to run with Hutt Faction, Not the Empire or the Rebels.

I'm looking forward to the expansion.

One side note: The male voice-over in that video is terrible.
