Hey folks,

I wanted to tell you about our new Cantina pre-registration page! You can find the page and some more details on it here. However, let me give you the TLDR on the perks of pre-registering for our Cantinas:
  • If you pre-register and attend the Cantina, you are eligible for a pre-registrant exclusive swag drawing!
  • If you pre-register and then redeem that Cantina exclusive pack code, you will receive an additional in-game reward.
  • Pre-registrants will get priority access to the Cantina (you get in first!)
  • Note: RSVPing on Facebook does not count as pre-registering, you must do it through this new page.
You can also see all of our currently planned Cantinas for the year listed there as well. We will update those with the specifics of each event as we have it! Thanks everyone, see you at the Cantina.

Great feature, I pre-registered immediately of course.

But what about our friends who have no SWTOR account or forgot to pre-register? Will they still be able to get priority access and enter with me or do they have to stay outside until regular access?


Also, I believe there is one design flaw:

Additionally, anyone who pre-registers for a Cantina and redeems that Cantina’s exclusive mount reward will earn an additional reward!
Anyone can get the mount from a friend without having to attend the cantina, so players will just pre-register for all the cantina tours this year, which makes the whole pre-registration kind of pointless.

How about throwing a bone to the player base that is not able to attend such events like EU players, as well? We can't get rewards cause we don't have the assets to travel thousands of miles.

At least for now we are going to require that anyone who comes through the pre-registration line did in fact pre-register.

On our side of things the code you redeem if you attend, vs the the link you share afterwards are two different things. Meaning pre-registering and redeeming the code from attending is the only thing that will count for the extra reward!

Will pre-registering be capped based on venue capacity (i.e., does successful pre-registering guarantee entry)?

On the page:
" let us know which Cantina’s you will be attending "
I would hope that the person's responsible for communication's would know by now that apostrophe's are never used to pluralize word's... you know, to appear professional and thing's. Just a tip from one of your customer's.

EDIT: It was fixed. Thank you. Please also fix all the other language mistakes in the game, some of which have been in since launch, and about many of which I have filed bug reports

How does the pre-register line work? How will you know who pre-registered? Will you ask for usernames?
