I love it... So much negativity and hyperbole surrounding an announcement regarding a small expansion, sure its $9.00... But you are getting new content, save the outrage until you know just how much bang for your buck you are going to get, by all accounts it should be quite alot...

Personally, I can't wait to see another five levels and explore Makeb.

I'm happy if it's size of a Outland from WoW. I'm more worried about the voice acting.

same here.

heck i just came back from lunch and that cost me 11 bucks and that only lasted 45 minutes. Makeb cost me $10 bucks yesterday ($9.99 for the detail oriented types...) and i guarantee ill get a whole lot of hours for that tiny amount..

Good to hear thanks.

To everyone that played WoW, think of Makeb like "Northrend" or "Pandaria". If there is as much to do on Makeb as there was on those two continents in WoW, then this is definately an expansion (plus we have 5 levels).

Just making things up?

Many MMO's have simply added a new continent, and it was quite enough.

Are there going to be any new species added in with this faction? With the introduction of the Hutt Cartels it would be nice to see some of the species seen in Jabbas palace being introduced for players to be able to pick such as Rodians, Tradoshians, Gran etc.

Cause as it stands while the expansion can be considered cheap (if you are a sub) for 19.99 is a lot of money for one new planet even if it is a big one with a mix of things to do. The Original game cost 3 times as much but came with 30 days free play and a lot more planets and story and class story and companions with story. So it seems there need to be additional features over and above 5 levels and one large planet.

Wow... as expected, if you didn't log on yesterday and just waited for Bioware to give out more info about the expansion some people would not have QQed. Or maybe it was just the tipping point. Who knows.

I'm just as excited about this as everyone else. I just hope its just like Section X, but way bigger XD

Yes they still would have. Just look at this thread as examples.

one guy is making things up stating some unknown rule that 1 planet cannot be an expansion. And other clowns jump in to pretend that they're going to rip through 5 levels in 2 hours.

If those 2 examples dont spell it out that some people are simply going to complain for the sake of complaining, I dont know what does.

That's a lot of "ifs" and assumptions. I'll go by what they've said rather than rampant speculation. Use my imagination and maybe this won't have been a content patch wrapped up in pretty words.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
