Eric, pass it along to the Cantina Organizers that y'all need to come to the great state of Michigan! Maybe Ann Arbor, or Detroit.

Maybe not. But from the point of view of those who would love to attend the event just for the event's sake but just don't have the realistic means (flight, hotel etc.) to do it, it looks like they get nose-thumbed, while those who attend get double rewards - the live event and an exclusive reward for attending.

Have you considered doing this event in some other cities? Up to now all of the ones I have seen have been on the west coast, Austin, or NYC. For those of us in the Central or South East US, this presents a major investment in time and money for an event lasting only a couple hours. I cannot see making a plane trip, getting a hotel, and renting a car for a 2-3 hour event. Perhaps you might consider some other cities like Indianapolis, St. Louis, Louisville, Cincinnati, Nashville, Atlanta, Chicago, and Orlando.

This seems to be a fairly consistent complaint from players.

How unfair is that. So, who don't live there and cannot run thousands of miles will never see what those rewards are.

Not only inside the game, BW is crap outdoing things too.

You just gotcha my DISLIKE option for that.

I want the same chance on those rewards as physical people that come. That would be FAIR, what you do, is NOT FAIR.

It's nice that some people can take time away from their real life responsibilities to attend one of these events, but what about the rest of those players. Are their $15 bucks a month not as good to get something via a livestream of the event (and not some crappy amateur video recording)? Or should they just unsub from the game so they can save up their money to make the trip instead?

The pre-registration seems rather pointless, since with rewards attached to that everybody is pre-registrating regardless if one can actually make it or not to an event, thus providing wrong data and expectations. I mean for the GamesCom I have neither an exact location (which is not that big of an issue), but I can registrate without even having the exact date?

Indianapolis would be great. We just had a con in March that featured Carrie Fisher, yeah, no Star Wars fans there. And in August we have GenCon, which I believe to be on of the largest, by attendance, gaming conventions in North America.

Where is the info for the event streaming? Will it be linked on the website? I'd like to tune in, but I can't find any directions on how or where to tune in.

I took it to mean that the codes given out at the event will be different from the generated codes to share with friends. The printed event code may be a longer string of characters or may just be registered in their system differently. Either way I'm sure they have a system in place to tell the event code from the share codes.
