Expansion

It IS priced as an expansion, $20 US dollars less than wings of liberty at launch.... don't know where you're shopping but you're getting ripped off.

Expansion

I wasted money on this expansion, If someone want to buy it, wait for a discount on it or something. The campaign mode is wayy to easy even on brutal take around 6-7 hours. The new units doesnt Worth the 30$ for a expension -.-*

Good for them.

Glad the expansion was a success however they still won't get my money, they said it will be priced equal to an expansion yet it costs the same (or more) as a full game. Blizzard lost me as a customer.
