Q&A session from community Cantina – Seattle, August 31

Redna and chill from  ootinicast.com went to the Community Cantina held in Seattle on Saturday evening, 31 August 2013. There they had the chance to sit in on the Q&A session featuring Amber Green (Live Services Specialist) and Eric Musco (Community Manager)  and Lead Designer Damion Schubert. The Community Cantina in Seattle might have been the  biggest cantina ever, with more then 300 people in attendance. Therefor they had to  split up the whole thing, including Q&A, into two parts, and the second round barely got everyone in who was still in line.  The Q&A transcript also includes some questions that was asked afterwards that weren’t part of the formal Q&A.

Community Cantina Tour – Dallas May 17th writeup

Doing last weekends Comic-Con in Dallas, BioWare took the opportunity and hold a a Community Cantina. If you haven’t read about the Comic-Con yet, Lisa had posted a few interesting reads about it. You can check them out here and here.  No one from swtorstrategies was at the  Community Cantina, but luckily Crafter over at ootinicast.com posted a lengthy write up of what was said by the developers. Some of the most interesting news is: Guild Ships will come eventually  –  When they look awesome ( They are Damion Schubert’s baby) A big PvP patch is coming soon  Same-gender romance was not part of the original design team’s implementation, so it didn’t get included. Moving forward they will not make the same mistakes. Additionally more story content is coming, but no ETA We will probably never get flying mounts Check out the full write up over at ootinicast.com
