FAmSCo had to dramatically cut costs in Q4 of FY12 because we were told
we were more or less out of money. We postponed whatever was possible
and only spent money on sending people to events or reimbursing them,
but all swag production had come to a stop. Here in EMEA we are out of
swag except stickers and cheatcubes ad people beg for shirts and stuff.
The same was true in NA. We were told we were basically out of money
even though what records there were did not indicate that we were even
close to out of money. We stopped spending based on that information.
