buying the new expansion already ??

HI.

Looking over the forums i see I PRE-ORDERD the game ,wft are you thinking off doing this at this state
WHY do i ask this , simple ............

1) look at the cost 9 bucks for subs ,we are already paying alot of money every month for a game that stil broke
in many way's ?
2) f2p who didnt buy the game (50 bucks at start) pay 20 bucks and get the PREFFERD state they are getting the main game and the expansion in 1 sell and a free update toward the restictions( the price of the game it self after a year is 16-17 bucks) so they pay only 3 bucks for the xpack.


so ppl who subed all year :
payed 50 bucks game box + 10 xpack = 60 (+ 15 monthly)

ppl with prefferd state
payed 50 bucks game box + 20 xpack (your no sub) = 70

ppl who are f2p
payed 0 buck's game box + 20 xpack = 20 and recive the prefferd state

IN my eye's sub and preffered players are getting screwd big time and the big winner is the f2p.
they get to lvl getting new planeet with new story ,while sub pay for the same .dif is the restrictions.
but these are limited seeing f2p are getting the prefferd state.
prefferd players getting nothing extra but have the pay the 20 bucks for the xpack

3) why pre-oder now what have we seen so far ?
some picture's and some word's in a forum , its not even on the PTS
payment is ONLY online , looking how well the SELL for CCoins are going wondering how well this is going to be.

what about players living not in the usa , or dont have a Ccard , paypal how are they going to pay and how sure we get what we payed for .(revering to the CC sell ).

after 1 year the sell price lowerd almost 3/4 of the officile price ,selling a very small xpack for 9-20 bucks is way to far.

the Xpack it self:
1 planet is this planeet shared between IMP/REP or get each faction there own planeet to explore and lvling ????
why i ask is OVERCROWED are's , camping spawn points , LAGGS.ed

if its shared is the world pvp / pve build ?? can factions meet for some world pvp ???
and will the planeet (server handle) this.

earlier in the year there was word about a new playable race is this included in the xpack ???
is the char a 0 lvl char at start or a premade lvl beeing unlocked like HK-51 compaion.
is this new race free for all sub's and f2p ?????
unlockably in the lagacy tree has a playable char for all classes??
Whar about Fpoints and raidscontent ????
gear for pvp and pve ??????
What's more is there in the xpack ????

weeks even months before the game it self came out there were movies , spots all over the web
with each release of content this became less and lesser the info about the game is poor.(became poor).
BW shut make more note's and release info's before make selling adv's on the web.

1. I enjoy playing SWTOR and I want to support the games development.
2. I am excited about the new story content.
3. If your a sub you only have to pay 10 bucks instead of 20.
4. Its 10 bucks...... 10...... If that's going to cause you to go bankrupt then you need a career change.....

I love SWTOR and welcome new content. Most sub based MMORPGs make you pay for the expansion regardless of sub status. So take a chill pill, relax, and realize that they have to make money.

We dont supscripe because we accauly get stuff for it(common it is eagames they always screw over costumers)
But because we love and want to support the game.
The extra's are nice but i dont supscripe for extra's.
Never have and never will.
knowledge is power.
use it well.

Good players take any and all advantages they can get, actually. It's why they are good.

Exactly, Its about supporting the game you enjoy playing. If you don't enjoy it then don't play...

ten dollars for a expansion is relatively cheap for mmos. i can get more entertainment value from it than the same price for a 3 hour movie that is now out so for me it is worth it.

we can debate forever as to why, what or whom is responsible for the games lack of subscribers. it has been done several times already so lets leave that dead horse alone for now.

my only issue will be the probable lack of new end game content once the level cap is increased recreating the past problems of such all over again. i seriously doubt anything between then and now will be added to mitigate this.

SWTOR doesn't seem like its meant to revolve around level 50. Its about playing through the stories of multiple classes. Feels like that is how its going to be for a while.

I subscribe because I need to in order to play endgame PVE/PVP on several toons regularly without dealing with restrictions popping up left and right. I did the math and for me a subscription is the better deal vs f2p or preferred. I don't subscribe out of loyalty.

I am interested in the expansion but I won't order it until BW provides all details on what it includes.

Well I personally love this game despite any frustrating kinks. Gotta take the bad with the good in my opinion. And yes, $10 for the expansion (again merely my opinion) is a good price to shell out for a pre-order. I agree with the others stating they sub to support the game not for the 'extras'.

No things aren't perfect for everyone with this game. You can't please everyone. I take the few pics we've seen for the expansion as a sign they're working on what another big 'complaint' has been for: more story. I'm in the group of people wanting more story.

As for asking all the 'What about end-game" and other questions. As stated, they haven't released much information so wait until they say more or till the up-grade.

I like playing this game - I've been playing it for over a year now. It's cheap entertainment that I can use at any time, any day, whenever I want (before someone says it, except during maintenance I'm usually asleep for that), compared to most other things we pay for. U-verse TV - $79 + Netflix Streaming $7.99 a month.

Saw a couple of movies this month for $12 for not much more than 2 hours of entertainment that I'll be able to see for free soon with the other services that we pay for. Not to mention what dinner and drinks cost before hand.

Bottom line, I want to keep playing swtor. We can argue about whether the xpac deserves a price tag and all that but it's already being done many times over in General Discussion. I have my own opinions and speculations about what has transpired in the game's management since launch. If RotHC turns out to feel like it 's not worth a measly $10 than I will not pre-order again.

Also why I sub - it would cost me a lot more overall to purchase Warzone and Operation passes, and I have too many alts. I also think the subscription model should always been supported, though I do think they need to work harder to make subs more attractive rather than make F2P look less attractive.
