I get it may not be needed but its a fair compromise I think.
I may be slow but I don't see all the problems with this. its something different each expansion and also y'all say that they are wasting time on a system that going away next expansion. well if people didn't complaint then they can spend time on new things.
It's like you're buying pizza and instead of getting what you ordered the pizza man keeps trying to convince you that cheese is not the way to go and should instead check out dirt, cough syrup, clipped nails and mashed pickled peaches before finally giving in to your cheesy demands...after the 10th order, and even then he's still too cocky to just give you the cheese you asked for and instead gives you unbaked expired cheese slices out of pure spite.
Delaying the Ex-pac is a good thing, get it right the 1st time...so we can all wait in the que.
