This FAQ needs a section about the expansion. It's stand alone, I get that, but I'm guessing it won't include War of Magic? For all practical purposes, it's a separate game? You need to purchase both separately? I think I read there's a second expansion planned after Fallen Enchantress (or whatever it's called, everyone just calls it FE), is that true? Will there eventually be a packaged deal like Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity, which includes WoM, FE, and whatever else comes along?
I loved Sins, I really did, and I would have bought Elemental at launch if it wasn't for the unfortunate admission by Stardock that it was a pile of crap. Quite frankly, however, if there's no package deal like Trinity once all the expansions are released I probably won't buy it, and that's giving Stardock the benefit of the doubt and assuming they'll fix this game's shortcomings (my understanding is Sins was supported pretty heavily, hell there's another patch for Sins on the way, and it's how old?). I don't want to buy WoM and FE separately. I'm a poor college student, and I missed the deadline to get the first two expansions for free. The prospect of having to pay full price for what should be at an expansion price (FE) when the original game is still broken beyond belief is very off putting.
