Normally I am very supportive of Bioware, but trying to rush us into preordering this expansion with basically zero info out on it seems like we're being taken advantage of.

We have three days left to meet the deadline and the only things we know about what we are purchasing is that it has 5 more levels and a new planet. I believe there will be more to it than that, hopefully new Ops, FPs, and WZs, but for all we know there won't be.

How can you expect us to fork out money on such an unknown quantity?
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

Pre-ordering only gets you 5 days early access. If you are unhappy with the amount of information released then don't pre-order the x-pac. Personally I have no problem missing out on the 5 days early access. As those days will be the ones that they use to fix all the new bugs and the lag problems they introduce with the new content.

I'm waiting until we get more details on the expansion.

The recent reveal of SGR options included in RotHC is not enough to make me pre order.

I agree with OP. Even though its only ten bucks since Im a subscriber, its hard to blindly purchase something. I can ignore the bonus of early access, but I know some people cant since they want to have access at the same time as their friends who did preorder.

Im going to wait for more info.

I just spent $18.75 for two sandwiches at a local restaurant. Money wasn't an issue as I knew what I was paying for before I paid for it.

If you're confident in BW then you pay the $10 and then they reward your loyalty and trust with early access.

Simple stuff, but if you want to find more info look around at t TORhead. I heard there have been a few leaks as to the new raid, flashpoint(?), PvP, etc.

call the waaambulance!
if you actually read the blogs and dev dispatches you would know that they did give out as much info on the xpac as they could while not spoiling anything. would you like them to do this like hollywood, show you the cool exciting bits and then make you pay to sit through crap interrupted by the cool **** you saw int he preview?

You have plenty of info! For crying out loud! Its $10 for a new big planet, 5 levels, and tons of the usual goodies. Quit trying to act like you don't know anything and they are trying to cheat you! You don't know much more about any other expansion in any other game. Come on people...
