I’m not going to A8, but I have been to their previous cons (A3/A4) and do NOT blame Jared for this without knowing for sure! Rogue Events has lied about things before. At A3 they said Richard Speight was late for his stage talk because of traffic or something and Richard heard this. Later he told us that he was sitting and waiting to get on. Just to mention one thing. They lie to make themselves look good.
I have had more incidents with Rogue that have me finding them unthrustworthy. I’ve spent money on things I never got.
