Virtual Cantina 2020 Recap | 11.25.2020, 01:04 PM
Hey everyone!

I wanted to offer some clarification. Until we can return to in-person events, we are planning to hold more Livestream Cantinas throughout next year. In the future, we're likely to do both once we're able! Since we tried a few new things production/format wise with the recent livestream, I wanted to take the opportunity to gauge the community's thoughts.

Interesting idea. While the team, and myself especially, are always looking at ways we can provide a behind-the-scenes look, that's a route I haven't looked into much. Can't guarantee it will happen, but I'll start putting some brain power into something of that nature.

Virtual Cantina 2020 Recap | 11.24.2020, 06:45 PM
Hey everyone!

Two quick notes for y'all. While we've mentioned this in other threads, I wanted to double back and inform everyone here that we created a new code to receive four classic Korrealis mounts. The new code is CantinaLivestream2020. This new code will expire on Monday, November 30th.

Secondly, everything has now been uploaded to YouTube to view at your leisure! Keith mentioned that if the community really liked this style of a "virtual cantina", we can look into doing these in a post-pandemic world. Whether you liked the general format, meeting someone new from the team, hearing from voice actors etc. Let us know what parts you liked!

Hi folks,

Thanks for your different reports concerning the LivestreamCantina2020 code.

Our team is currently looking into it. I'll update you when I have more information.

Thank you for your patience while we're looking into it.

Note: It seems that the code doesn't do anything when players who already own those mounts redeem the code, the page is just reloading. Do not hesitate to check in your Collections if the following mounts are already unlocked: Korrealis Regent, Korrealis Sheriff, Korrealis Viceroy, and Korrealis Viscount.

Login Rewards in 6.2 - Feedback | 11.19.2020, 08:51 AM
Hi all!

First and foremost, thank you for the excellent feedback regarding Login Rewards. I would like to go over some points I have seen and talk a little more about them!

More Unique Rewards
Our goal with the Login Reward system is to allow itself to continually cycle between the Reward Calendars. As such, the rewards are intentionally designed to include consumable-style items all players can use, rather than (one-time) unique items. Adding unique rewards to the Reward Calendars is not currently in our plans for the Login Reward system all players will have access to.

That being said, we know that these unique rewards are what you want to see!

One place you may find unique rewards appear is in the Weekly Subscriber Bonus Reward track. We have designed the back end (developer side) of this specific reward track to allow us flexibility to provide more robust (and unique) rewards versus that of the shared Login Reward track. In addition, we have further plans of ways to provide exciting and exclusive unique rewards, which...well….we can’t go into that yet, but the Login Reward System is the first step in a larger whole!

Changing Reward Calendars
One of the points we have seen is in regards to the Reward Calendars, and feeling like you are stuck into one you may not find value in (for instance, you are a PvE centric player who gets the “Aggressive Negotiations” Reward Calendar). As I mentioned in my last post, the reward structure for all Reward Calendars is almost identical, save for the Calendar-Defining rewards. This was intended to alleviate this, but the concern is valid.

I would like to clarify that the Reward Calendars will never immediately repeat themselves - once you complete a Reward Calendar, you will not (and cannot) be immediately put into that same Reward Calendar. Rather, you will be given a new Reward Calendar based on the remaining two Reward Calendars. For example, I completed the ‘Strength In Allies’ Reward Calendar, and will then move into either the ‘Aggressive Negotiations’ or the ‘United Efforts’ Reward Calendars. I will never have two of the same Reward Calendars back-to-back.

That being the case we have been discussing additional options for this, and will continue to monitor feedback regarding it.

Thank you all again!

Cantina Livestream - November 13th! | 11.17.2020, 04:49 PM
Hey everyone!

Quick update regarding our livestream that was initially planned for last week. The new date and time is Friday, November 20th at 3:00pm CST (9:00pm GMT). Unfortunately with the revised schedule, Kari Wahlgren (the voice of the female Jedi Knight) can't make it, but we were able to prepare with prerecording so you still get to hear from her! And don't forget, that's in addition to two other (secret) special guests who we were able to record interviews with as well.

The team is excited to reveal what we have planned for Game Update 6.2 and hope you can make it!
