You gotta check this out as it appears the "Expansion" pak will now be a full blown offering rather than an addon. From what I can tell, we will be shelling out $$ for a new disc. The larger issue in my mind is how fast and how many of us will switch to the "New" game and what are we going to see in the way of servers...check it out...
Yea, its kind of a bummer...

I agree...we'll need to have both versions installed on our machines but I kinda think there will be confusion when the new game hits the shelves. Particularly with the clans, it will take some time to sort out who is playing what and where...
Well, I'm sure the game itself will be another fun one!!!
Oh bugger, at least they could give us purchasers of the original a discount or something.
I shelled out heaps for my copy, then my friend bought a limited release copy for half the price off an internet auction.
Yea, an upgrade price would be cool. 50 USD for the game then prolly 40 or 50 for ET???
hell fucking yes when does it come out
They hacnt released a date as of yet. I personally think its a good move to have it as a stand alone game. I have yet to read anywhere that you will need to have the original one on your system to play it.
As far as people playing the game... As long as a game can still run people WILL play it. Take blizzard games for example. Diablo 2 is $20 can run on almost ANY system that isnt 4 years old. Despite all thouse facts people STILL play the original Diablo and that came out in '96 over 6 years ago. An expansion/addon/sequal/anything to ANY Game of the yearwill sell well.
For it being Chaos in tha clan world? When isnt it? I believe most clans who are playing RTCW (when game comes out) will switch to the new one and may also stay with the old one. Meaning playing both games. The leagues can act as if the two games arnt related so that people who dont want to switch to Enemy Territory can still play in a clan.
As for me? Im just speaking out of my @$$ now.
When i played ultima online they would put it out in patches. Each time you logged to the master server it would start to dl the patch. This way you didnt need to go buy the new cd for each expansion. I'm not saying put the patch out all at once but little by little. Save the ppl who have been playing game all along a bit of money.
