Uhh no, DLC is not in anyway patches, and even then, for them to kick it up to expansion level means nothing but them actually giving us more ! But you're apparently worked up by some notion of Relic constantly trying to scam you out of all your money.Oh yeah. great. Were being sold a bunch of patches and are ripped off for a second expansion afterwards, ooorah!
Yess.. That is blizzard, and that is a full game, this is a second expansion for CoH, besides, Relic and Blizzard are two different developers ! They do their things differently and if you like the way blizzard does it, why don't you head over there and stop implying that the rest of us are morons for not sharing your view.
Not really, it's already been said that they will be replacement units that will allow you to tailor your army towards your strategies and tactics.The new 'units' will most likely be reward units with replacement skins, i.e. similar to those which were leaked during the playtest beta. This doesn't constiture bona fide 'new units' imo
Plus there are the other multiplayer modes mentioned which we have yet to see or hear anything of.
