The Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ team is excited to be traveling again this year to Cologne to take part in one of the largest gaming conventions in the world. More than 275,000 people are expected to visit the GamesCom show sometime during its run from August 16-19, and we hope to see some of you there.

GamesCom is every year. Celebration is once every 2-3 years. And you choose to go to GamesCom? Odd choice.

They were going to Celebration VI, but recently backed out, about 2 weeks before the event.

Hey everyone!

Our Community Manager, Joveth Gonzalez, just gave an update on why we will not be going to Celebration VI this year. Please remember that this thread is specifically about GamesCom.

Thanks!

Celebration is also of little interest to gamers, but a thing for star wars fans. Personally, as a not-so-much star wars fanatic, I never even heard of it. Whereas GamesCom is one of the major gaming events and will offer SWTOR great publicity to gamers worldwide.

It's not hard to understand why they'd pick GamesCom.

The community team previously implied that Celebration would be the event to go to, but now not only is it not the signature event, it isn't an event at all.

These things require planning and money - taking vacation for work, plane/hotel/event tickets, etc. To hear that an event is cancelled 2 weeks before is pretty frustrating.
