If you buy before Beta, you get every official update and expansion pack, but if you buy it at Beta, the expansion packs aren't free and you get every official update free.

No you won't.

There was a image someone made before that was a guideline of future updates. I'm not 100% sure how it went, but it's similar to this.

Alpha Members --- Updates, addons, future expansion packs etc...FREE

Beta Members --- Updates Free? Everything else must be payed for.

Post Beta --- Pay for everything?

I really am not sure. I know Alpha members (which is what I am) get everything for free for life. Everything else I'm not sure of.
If you bought the game now, you'll be beta.

Credit card - If you buy the game with a credit card, the payment will be made, and you'll be able to download the Game on the site, I don't believe there is any email stuff. I didn't have to deal with that, but you might depending on your card and what not.

Alpha > beta > full game > minor fixes > major fixes > exp packs > addons
Beta > beta > full game > minor fixes > major fixes MAY GET> exp packs > addons
Full game > minor fixes > major fixes exp packs > addons

it seems people only read the has to buy, you MAY get addons and exp packs, but there is a chance you will have to buy them

No, he would need a psychiatrist if he was kind of screwed up. This guy is REALLY screwed up; he needs to BECOME a psychiatrist.
