The Star Wars: The Old Republic Community Cantina Tour Arrives in Las Vegas, Nevada! | 10.17.2014, 12:55 PM
First off, I want to apologize for anyone who’s travel was impacted by the date announcement of our Las Vegas event. It is always our goal that we can have as many people as possible coming to our Cantina events, with a special nod always to those who are willing to travel extra to get there, the last thing we want to do is put someone out of travel expenses.
I understand that there is some frustration around the date being different than what we had initially listed. I have to reiterate that those dates were merely possible targets and were not at all intended to be an announcement of the event date. As we stated previously, our date is never considered final on these events until we have announced it formally in a blog which would include date, time, and location.
I also want to apologize for the timing of the announcement. I realize that one month out is closer to the time of the event than intended. It is our goal that we will tend to announce events 60 days out from each event. In this case, we were working on securing a venue, and also factoring in what staff would be able to attend as well which made it later than usual.
As we move into next year and start talking about Cantina locations, I will likely remove the date specifics and talk only about locations. Although I want to give everyone a target as best I can, I would hate to repeat this situation where folks have looked at that initial schedule and booked travel. We will continue to work on getting event details out to you 60 days prior wherever we can.
I want to take this time to also mention another change in our schedule, this one for our Texas event which was previously slated for Austin in late November. With the launch of PAX South next year in our neighbor city of San Antonio, we are going to do our Texas event there in January! This will mark the first Cantina Tour of 2015.
Thank you all for your understanding.
