Excellent.

I like all 3. Thanks for throwing 'em in! (Though it does make me question how well the expansion is selling, since I would've expected them to be advertising the gifts up front, along with the early access. Maybe they just... weren't finished with them or something?

Hmm.. looks like EAware didn't hit their internal quota for Jan 7th pre-orders and dragged out some in-waiting cartel items to sweeten the pot.

Yeah, it's not unexpected.

They market a content patch turned adventure pack as an "expansion" and then wonder why people don't rush to buy it.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

The number of sales must be way off the numbers they had projected. So they have decided to try and sweeten the deal to draw in more suckers oops I mean customers. Rather than offering us facts about what will be included in the expac they offer us more crap. Titles.holo statues and mini pets are cool but these are the kind of things that should be included in in-game content. Not as a incentive to preorder a expac.

[The free gifts are nice so I can't complain, but nothing there that I won't care for after a few times of usage or after the first day. The 5 Day free pass means nothing to me as I can only play on the weekends. There should be better rewards for the committed player like me. I'm a subscriber and still only play on weekends. I should be a free to play player. Where is my reward for my commitment. Puff Puff give. I'm putting my money on the content, hope that goes well.]

The "bonuses" are total crap. Holo trainer that will be useful for 5 times (if there are any new abilities at each level at all) on each character (if we will be braindead enough to do the same missions, the EXACTLY same missions on the same fraction several times).

A title, that's long and not even appealing?

A pet, when I am already at the pet limit, and last time when I tried to add a NEW pet to my collection, I got the "Already have that pet" message and the pet was nowhere to be found on my list of pets?

And I wonder if you EAware/Bugware going to pull the same stunt as at launch, that you gave us 5 days of early acces, but instead of which we got 2 weeks of stuck at loading screen bug?

Sadly I already pre-ordered the expansion, but I already regret it and suggest to anyone and everywhere not to do it.

When you change your attitude towards us, start doing the little things right, and not just rushing out content which is bugged and completely worthless for 2 months even after it's release, and tickets doesn't get ninja-closed without any notice or without a completely irrelevant copy paste answer from an indian guy or maybe if our tickets would get a reply at all, within 1-2 weeks.... maybe, MAYBE then we, the players could start changing our attitude toward YOU.
