    Er, so we'd go into a dungeon, and if we'd payed for the expansion we'd get different items by killing the same monsters?

    Wouldn't that mean more research then if new monsters were introduced? I mean, in that case, it's fairly obvious how the new drops are obtained...

    Frankly I'd prefer bug fixes over either option.

    An expansion should always enhance what we already have. If the new stuff doesn't add another option as to how to do what we already love, it doesn't belong in UO.

    That said... if the expansion doesn't also add new content... why is it an expansion and not being done by the live team?

    ...

    Expansions should always "expand" the game. They are where new skills, races, lands, etc are to be.

    The Live Team are the ones who should be looking at CURRENT content in the game, taking content that has become stale and either updating or cycling such content out of the game in favor of fresh content.

    An expansion should add new content. A publish should enhance what we have.

    how about this for a third option. New stuff that enhances what we already have. I need new quests like the ones we have been having. It is new but it is enhancing the old play. :blushing:what can i say, i want my cake and I want to eat it too.

    I agree :thumbup:
     
  15. You're talking about 2 different things.

    By definition, an Expansion expands on what is already present.

    The other term you've mistakenly labeled as "expansion", is actually what would be a Live Update.

    While a Live Update could definitely "expand" on the game, an Expansion is by definition required to have new content.
