A) Budget allocation most likely does not work this way. They have set PR budget from EA's beancounters, and that money has to stay in PR, and ideally be used, otherwise, they will get less money next time (and no, that money will most likely not go to development, they will just get less money overall)

B) From what I have seen, that was ONE time. Before that, these event were pretty normal filled with normal people who are passionate about the game.

How many people actually attend these Cantina Tour events? 10? 50? 100? More?

In Europe, they usually have it at GamesCom in Cologne, Germany (not the main area, but a hotel lounge nearby). It is usually on Friday, so this year, it should be on 7th of August (GamesCom is 5th-9th).

First, we have no plans to introduce any of our Cantina exclusive items to the Cartel Market. That being said, as part of our ongoing improvements to Cantina's, our new mounts are going to work completely different than how our pets have in the past.

Without going into detail yet, even if you don't go to an event there are definite ways to get the mounts! We will be talking details on this when we do our next livestream which we should be announcing the date for soon.

Thanks for the response. I sincerely hope you're going to offer a means to obtain these mounts that's considerate of the entirety of your players as opposed to those just geographically convenient to the five or so places you visit every year.

It is 100% around those players who cannot attend the Cantina and it is not at all based on geography or anything like that
