People claiming that the expansion has too many "reskins" are unbelievably brain dead. First off, the majority (not all) of subspecies/variants are vastly different from the original with different and new moves, elemental changes, and sometimes complete behavioral reworks. A lot of subspecies can feel like fighting a completely different monster. Secondly, Monster hunter games in the past have always focused more on subspecies in their expansions. For reference, Monster Hunter 4's ultimate expansion added 23 monsters. 8 off them were new/returning and 15 of them were subspecies/variants. So far for World we have 16 creatures: 8 new/returning and 8 subspecies/variants and they still aren't done adding monsters. Lastly, the expansion adds so much more than just monsters. It adds a whole other rank above high rank which will have new moves for over 90% of the old monsters. It'll have Tons of new weapons and armor, all of which will have different stats and a different look. It adds a completely new area, hub, and story. People also forget that monster hunter world has been showering us with free DLC content which they could have easily charged for. Sorry for ranting, I just want people to wake up and realize they're getting a lot more than just "reskins"
