No, I'm pretty sure they were clear about what F2P players will get. They'll be able to access Makeb and level to 55, but they'll still need to buy weekly passes in order to PvP, get gear from more than 3 FPs, or run Operations. Which makes the $20 price tag entirely too high. As long as this is all that RotHC is offering, it's a rip off for F2P/preferred players and subscribers alike. Looks more like the DLC packs I can get for free while subbing to other F2P games.

So some community guys disappeared without announcement. What I am wondering is: how many developers got to "spend more time with their families", as they say, this time? How many unannounced but rumored projects will just disappear? What happened to the Super-Secret-Space-Project (tm)?

But only in the english forums.

What subscribers will get without purchasing Rise of the Hutt Cartel:
  • Class changes and balancing levels 1-50
  • Any itemization/world changes which affect levels 1-50
  • Legacy Achievements

What subscribers will get if they do purchase Rise of the Hutt Cartel:
  • New Operation: Scum and Villainy
  • Nightmare Mode Terror From Beyond
  • Upgraded level 55 Hard Mode Flashpoints
  • Level cap increase to 55
  • All new Makeb storyline
The new Operation and Hard Mode Flashpoints in Game Update 2.0 are Level 55 Elder Game Content. The level cap increase to 55 is included with the purchase of the Digital Expansion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel. Free-to-Play restrictions apply. Visit the Free-to-Play Features Chart for more information.

-eric
So after all 2.0 without Makeb seems to be a joke. No more level 50 PvP armors (why delete them?) and with it no use to do pvp any more (why doing 50 pvp without Makeb, when there are no more level 50 PvP rewards?), still no rework on classes (2.0 balancing is just...in german we would call it "Tropfen auf dem heißen Stein"), high tier skills in the talent trees are now a tier higher and the way to it is still filled with useless talents (and the new talents mostly affect the 50+ skills). So all in all we have to spend more points in useless talents just to reach for example the plasma probe and then we have less points to spend in other trees. Hmmm my english sucks but well...in the german forums no one cares about feedback.
And...8€ for subscribers for the Makeb DLC is a cheek. And still 17€ without subscription is way too much money. But at all...SWTOR withour Makeb don't seems to work after 2.0. So we are forced to byu the Makeb-DLC...and forcing a paying customer to buy other overprieced stuff isn't such a clever idea.
You will condemn, I'll convert.
You will preach, I will pervert.

Hey LtGeneralGezlin,

At this time there is no plan to increase the number of companions you can send out on skill missions/crafting.

All three of us actually. In fact, last night Musco and I were playing warzones the whole evening.
