I know I may be a bit biased, being fishy and all, but I think the Expansion is tremendous. Of course there are a few tweaks I'd like, but overall the new High Seas is amazing. Even better, the ease of transition and relatively few patch problems, glitches, etc. are wonderful. My husband plays that other online game and their recent patch has been a total mess. You guys got it right! I've played since beta and this is truly the best patch/upgrade with the fewest problems of any I have seen. Kudos to you all!
