Damn, I must have missed the early access before otherwise I would have pre-ordered this sooner. Teach me to look harder next time :|

How about DONT preorder and possibly send Bioware the message that F2P and Cartel crap isnt what the customers want...and that they should use the expansion to actually meet at least some of the long held expectations of same cusotmers!

Alright bioware, I get it. you really want us to pre-order the expansion, previously you offered early access and now your offering another insentive of some stuff, but why don't you tell us more Official information about what you want us to pre-order? the only really information given has been the same since back when it was orrigionally going to be a free patch, ok it's a planet and it has a level cap increase... Why do you want us to desperately pay for something we still know little about?

I think it's about time we had actual details, screenshots, video teasers, developer interviews on it, anything other than "there's a planet and a level cap increase" because we already knew that six months ago.

Make me want to buy it, because right now I havn't a clue what i've payed for other than early access and a pet.

I was going to buy the expansion for extra content as most of us have done it all, not for some trinkets.

1. The Jaba holo training statue - pretty pointless. When levelling you are not training all that much, mainly when you level and get a new ability, by which stage you are generally near a trainer in a main city. So like the Darth Malgus holo statue trainer, its pretty - but that's about it.

2. The Pet.
Dont get me started on Pets. If I wanted to be vain and parade around with vanity pets, I'd play Tera. I want a Pet that does something, one I can feed/raise and fight other pets (no, im not a Pokemon fan) .. even the simple Beastmaster system SWG had would suffice.

3. A new title.

Is it going to be as great as "The Skip Tracer" ? or "Flyboy" ?

Besides the fact titles are nothing more than an extension of the vanity system, they serve absolutely no purpose than creating even bigger walls of text above peopl's heads.

I didn't really want any rubbish items with this update, and ure its great you are giving them but make them something worthwhile. Even the training Holo when we go from 50-55 with be usless.. great I can use it 5 times (thats if you added new abilities too... If..)
then don't preorder to me i don't need any free items to be encoruged to pre order expect for the words new content increase lvl cap the items are just a bonus no matter how useless. And the class trainer holo will be useful because they are adding some new ablities or at least be in the talent trees if not the trainer. I remeber 1 of the first trailers awhile backs showed a assassin doing spinning strikes that awesome aoe only npc's have atm and if not useful from 50-55 be useful for alts unless you got 1 of every class at 50

Already pre-ordered before these were announced, so I wasn't really expecting anything else.

But these are a nice bonus.

Nice.. For myself theres already more than enough shown, described and offered now to justify this at the low price.. Just don't forget to use some of that money to keep developing free stuff though.

those items are a joke. No, I am not expecting anything uber and stuff that will make me op but at least i'd like some proper cosmetics I can use for a longer period of time (color crystals, armor, headpieces?)

After having seen all the worthless items they gave for pre-ordering the game, I doubt many players will pre-order this time just for these items.




As bored as I am with running the same things every time I come in, I have not ordered the coming content nor will I. For the very first time in all the many years I've played MMO's, I won't be ordering any new content. Maybe in the future after and if I hear it's worth it.

And it has nothing to do with the price.
