How about just streaming the entire thing online and do away with this "pre-order" garbage so that EVERYONE can just enjoy it in person or online without some "I am special" reward nonsense.

We will be checking usernames and email addresses at the event!

We are actually streaming our Cantina event from SW Celebration, so you can tune in! Nothing wrong with a little extra for those who attend though

It is very rare that we hit venue capacity as we try to leave a lot of buffer. However, if for some reason we have a ton of pre-registrations and they are more numerous than our capacity, we could turn people away. It does not guarantee entry. I will reiterate though, we have never had this happen. Celebration could certainly though, our room is huge but so is our attendance!

No there is something wrong with it. Its complete garbage Eric that people that actually attend it get more cause they are able to while players, EU players for example which are just as important as US players (which in my opinion BW keeps forgetting from time to time). I want the same chance on those rewards as physical people that come. That would be FAIR, what you do, is NOT FAIR.

Sounds cool, what is the recommend time to get there as I know these events can get filled up quite quickly.

Do you need a ticket to Star Wars Celebration to get into the Cantina?

If you don't change this, you are handling this the same way as the Slot Machines (right when is that gonna be fixed?) or the Comms massacre (thank god that is changed in 3.2)

Huh,it's a community event what you want them to travel the whole globe? you go primarily to meet up with guildys,players from the server you play on,see other players and many dress up in Star Wars get ups what not and then meet some of the team,that's all it is really.

I met up pre funk with five people at the bar,then i met about ten other people from my server,one couple drove down from Canada and spent three days in Seattle and attended.
