BW to the players:

~If you pre-odered you got 3 things nobody else in the game can get,

~If you sub up in the month prior to October 12 we'll give you 1000 CC for you're purchase of the RotTC,

~if you are in the group between those,SFTU

That's how I feel anyway.


The 500 CC for returning subs, active subs get that every month anyway.

Not really, not when it's the subscribers and the ones who preorder that are supporting this game. I'm good with a F2P option, I'm good with the expansion being free as long as some love is being shown to those who subscribe. THAT should not be too much to ask.
By pre-ordering it, your $10 got you .. what ... half a year of playing it ahead of everyone waiting for it to go free? Wouldn't you pay $10 to play fresh content ahead of all your f2p friends? Well, I did. Even if they guaranteed every expansion would be free after six months, I would still be paying the $10 to play them six months ahead with everyone else. Now, if the expansions were $100 I might wait. If the "free" wait time was just a week, I'd wait. But it's just $10, and six months is a long time not enjoying something that's available.

I'm guessing there's a large number of f2p that just won't purchase the expansion, and EA/Bioware thinks this is the solution to them dropping out after they're bored at lvl 50. I am not a game designer / producer, so my opinion that it won't change anything might be completely wrong, and doesn't count. But I see no point complaining about your hurt feelings you didn't get the expansion for free, you get something extra when you bought it, either as a sub or f2p: Being able to play it sooner.

I've given up on trying to explain it to them, Kenn. This and at least 3 other threads about it. The fact is, if Bioware gave them all the 1050 cartel coins, they'd just find something else to complain about. 1050 Cartel Coins? We don't want to buy your worthless pay to win crap...

In addition you got early access to the content which you have been playing for the last six months.
Where do I get that stuff? I purchased the expansion and never received any of that. All I got was a title "The Risen" and a debit on my credit card. I haven't even gotten to the planet yet, since none of my characters are level 50 yet. How do I get the pet and the statue?

I actually never got to play it yet. I am not level 50. I bought it because it was a special price for subscribers. I thought I was getting a 50% discount being a subscriber. Instead I got 100% over-charged. So I never received the benefit of having it early.

According to the announcement, the only thing that early adopters get that is different is a title. Otherwise, everything else is the same as people who got it free.

"Players who have already purchased Rise of the Hutt Cartel and are an active Subscriber on September 12, 2013 at 4:00AM PDT / 11:00AM GMT will receive a new title, “The Risen,” via in-game mail on or before September 25, 2013 as our appreciation for the purchase."

What are the three things that early adopters get that no one else gets?

Scourge of the Hutts title and the Dr. Ogurrobb Hutt Holostatue... and I forget what the 3rd thing was. Again, it was as he said PRE-ORDERS that got those though.

I'm wondering the same thing... I upgraded and I didn't get the pet or mount. I don't care beans about the expansion, all I do is pvp, but I'd like the stuff all the same, lol.
