I doubt there will be a rent, all the subscriber who are getting a house for free and do not have interest in that would be angry that they would have to pay then for something they got for free.

I'm confused...

Are you finding it "ironic" that the proprietor of one of the biggest SWTOR fan sites also keeps close tabs on announcements for that game?

Or would you find it "ironic" that the Community team might be actively reaching out to the proprietors of their game's biggest fan sites?
Given the choice whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny, what was a king to do?
But does one ever truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate, and thus defy the tyrannous stars.

They said that the Typhon/Korriban flashpoint will start a storyline that will last all year, so I think that will be the Makeb sized expansion

I don't think 2.7 Invasion will be the Makeb sized expansion, BUT will be the precursor to it, just because their not hyping it very much. I expect that the big expansion will be for purchase, much like ROTHC was, but similarly priced. Because not much hype yet, I think the timeline is still towards the end of the year.
Also, don't forget that we still have upcoming rakghoul events on Tat and Corellia i believe. Last but not least, wasn't there supposed to be another Gree event with new drops? Call me pollyanna, but I hope the devs are working to tie all this together into the new expansion...maybe something like the rakghoul plague is so ravenous the Gree want to investigate, both the Empire and Republic think the other faction released the plague as some kind of chemical warfare and need to kick of the war again by invading each others academies...(ok i'm back to reality now)

CORRECTION: I forgot that ROTHC was free to us subbers...so I expect the big expansion will be the same, especially all the focus they're placing on the subbers right know.

I wasn't saying that 2.7 will be the expansion, I was saying that the story of the expansion will probably be the continuation of those fp storylines

This is a little offtopic but I noticed something. While I was on Twitch.tv to watch other streams I would occasionally see an ad for swtor and it was advertising about the Galactic strongholds trailer. It wasn't this trailer but an earlier trailer from before,it might have been that short teaser video.
Now I haven't seen a swtor ad on Twitch for a long time(maybe since last year),so I'm thinking damn they must be delivering a big update soon if they're spending more advertising dollars for this. Either way I'm looking forward to this.

I've seen dozens of conjectures on this, but no Official responses (that I've found). Can we get a heads-up on whether or not existing crafts will be able to make items? Or will it be a new craft? Some of us who have sadly neglected our crafting alts would like to get busy and level up our profs if they will be used for Stronghold accessories.

It's possible the answer to this is under NDA and that's why I can't find the answer, so if that is indeed the case, could you just say, "NDA, sorry,"
