It appears the document was legit, although all those features will likely be on the cash-shop, instead of freebies with the "expansion", aka DLC.

 

It also gives some attention to the EA Louse (Fall 2010), who also leaked info, which later turned out to be (within reason) true.

Quotes from EA louse:

Almost makes me congratulate them for having the balls, but after watching them work, it’s obvious they don’t have any. They’re cowards running scared trying to hide under the wing of Bioware, now that Rob has become a general manager of EA.

And Bioware? Don’t make me laugh. They’ve spent more money making the Old Republic than James Cameron spent on Avatar. Shit you not. More than $ 300 million! Can you believe that?

And you know what they’re most proud of? This is the kicker. They are most proud of the sound. No seriously. Something like a 20Gig installation, and most of it is voiceover work. That’s the best they have. The rest of the game is a joke. EA knows it and so does George Lucas,they’re panicking , and so most of Mythic has already been cannibalized to work in Austin on it because they can’t keep pushing back launch.

Old Republic will be one of the greatest failures in the history of MMOs from EA. Probably at the level of the Sims Online. We all know it too ……

 

If anyone has a complete text of the EA louse, please link .. Wordpress deleted the topic (likely because of EA pressure).

There you go: EA Louse blog, and a look into it 2 years later.

 

But what you really want to read is EA Spouse blog and the follow-up.

Just look around, many are still around and they are jaded as f*ck. Its funny too, because many of them feel ripped off even though the red flags were up since beta; they really have only themselves to blame for buying the hype with nothing but the developer's promises.

 

Anyway, it's clear now that EA was set on charging for this all along. The "we may not charge" was basically just them covering their butts in case the survey results were unfavourable.

Those are some ridiculous surveys. It is basically asking, if we cut/didn't bother to add certain parts of the expansion what is the most money we can charge anyway and then charge some more with it in the cartel market...

Let's build the ultimate MMO 1 feature at a time
