Trivia

  • In the weeks leading up to the start of the event, Cloud Imperium developers were continuously teasing with hints, such as a tweet with a picture of a Bengal cat in a carrying bag.[7] Fans concluded in the replies to the tweet that this meant we might be seeing a Bengal Carrier during the event.
