Its confusing because what FE was called,changed.In addition after the change ,the free expansion is not mentioned as part of the deal in at least one interview,in which instead its said "goodies" will be given to anyone who pre-orderd FE.
By the way,were there any goodies handed out for pre-ordering FE ?
Q: What kind of goodies?
A: Additional quests, monsters, and items.
And of course,because people were employing different opinions which were conflicting.Not to mention the way some consider FE as being free.In short, the communication was "not optimal". this of course lead people to not "being on the same page".....
Speaking of which ....huge maps ?Included in expansion ?
