This can develop into a serious revenue problem for BioWare if they do not compensate the buyers of RoTHC. That being... why in blazes should we ever buy new content in the future if all we have to do is wait for BioWare to make it free later on?
Personally I bought it only 2 months ago and I feel cheated. so This is yet one more thing that will weigh heavily when I make my decision to renew my subscription in 5 months time.

I think a cartel coin compensation in the order of 1-2 k would be sufficient and would not cost BioWare, it would in fact help boost sales of future releases.... IMHO.

Why? It's never bothered any other MMO out there, why should it suddenly break this one?

Look, you're upset because you didn't know, I get it. We weren't too happy when City of Villains- the City of Heroes companion game went completely free after we had dropped $60 each to get it when it came out. But other things came along for the game and we knew what to expect when it comes to MMOs and how their expansions work as a result of that experience.

They release an expansion.. let it run for a little while... drop the price.... release another expansion.... let it run for a little while.... drop the price.... release another expansion....let it run for a little while....

That's just what MMOs do. Always has been and always will be.

Now. Don't get me wrong, I'm not dismissing your experiences- nor insulting you. I'm just observing that if you are this upset by an MMO just behaving like an MMO then maybe MMOs just aren't your "thing" in which case, yeah, maybe you should reconsider that subscription. Like very other hobby under the sun- no single hobby is for everyone. After all, if there was just one hobby for everyone, then, we wouldn't have so many different hobbies out there!

Ok enough of this crap. You non subs really have no place posting on this topic. you are leeches who would have NO game if not for us subs. You get something free and ***** that we might not like being taken advantage of. we say we likely won't buy in the future because we would like it free too now you get all pissy because lets face it you are too poor or too cheap to pay for the game and knowing that we may not pay threatens your free ride.
So get lost and let us vent about something that pertains to us and not you.

Prices in the world for all things. People who pre-ordered the package got access to the content before everybody else. Anybody who bought the package got some coins as well as a title in game. That seems pretty fair to me.

All of that said, I purchased the xpac.

You know what's funny, you have to be a subscriber or have time left on your subscription in order to post here. You know what that means the ill mannered little friend? The people you just insulted here on this form have every right to be here and have help support the game just like you, some even more so.

So how about you do the rest up us a favor you get lost for a well and let those of us who don't insult other just because they have a different view from our own have an adult conversation about this issues.

Now good day Sir!

Well bully for you! I am wrong so what!!! The fact is that if I pay for something to support the game why the frik should some freeloader get to benefit from it.

And btw if they are all subscribers, why would anyone be insulted. It would seem I am not the only one to make an error in judgement and run off at the mouth eh my associate "ill mannered little friend"?

As far as anything else goes, if you want to talk about something other than what the OP posted then make another post.

No its not. The fact that BioWare in its imminent glory, decided to give away what we had to buy has made any benefit we once had worthless. Had I known they were going to give it away free I would not have bought it. But hey maybe that's just me. If you're feeling so generous perhaps you can pay for my subscription hmmm?. That won't bother me at all.

Yeah, of course, you would not have bought it and instead waited below top level for a few months while everyone is progressing further and enjoying the new content...
Get lost.
