I’m not going to lie to you: I’m almost equally divided between excitement and nervousness for Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire
. I’m still not quite sure why BioWare

Is this a good move for SWTOR to make? More regular story updates are always welcome, but at the expense of continuing class sagas or being group inclusive? I don’t know. And the pressure to subscribe and stay subscribed is already pressing down on us free-to-play folk, which irks me somewhat.
What do you think about the direction that the game is taking come this fall? Is this a risk worth pursuing in order to revitalize the title?
