Although I appreciate the separate chest I think it is excessively expensive, between the cost involved in decorating a room and the cost to purchase gems to open enough of these chest to clear the tiers it is simply too much. Good idea in theory but given that this time of year is already a money spinner it would have been nice to see a little more consideration around lowering prices instead of increasing them yet again. You are pricing this game beyond reasonable means.

I love that we now have an option to purchase Magic Chests which guarantee all NEW items - that is a great way to solve the issue of not wanting to get in store items for our gems. :thumbsup:

Here comes my *but*, lol. My only reservation is the cost of the new Magic Chest. I think 230 makes it , not *value for gem* as it will require more YC to fill up the bar just to be able to unleash two new items per go- around. If it were like say 200 gems, although you would still only get 2 rounds with a filled up bar, but it would cost slightly less to reload the gem bar. Each yocash represents real money that we are spending and I understand and accept the principle that if a player wants to get New Items only, then we need to pay premium for that option, but at the same time I don't want to feel like I am being fleeced (especially if that 230 gem box uncovers a New 50 gem item - that's a bitter pill to swallow and is another form of gambling). This new box should be able to make both the player and the *ringing YC tills* at BVG feel happy at the compromise. Right now it doesn't for me, with this cost level. o_o o_o

Thank you again, for delivering another YAWL aspect to the gem event :D :star: :)


Agree with this 100%!! Ty for taking the time to outline this so eloquently, Jojo! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

YES to your entire reply! I love the new items that we get in the gem events, but I would rather they just be released in game and not some special event. I am tired of the best designed items being in the gems because the cost is ridiculous. This game is quickly becoming way too expensive.

This stuff all needs to be in the store AND in the gem events. I understand that you want someone to pay $190 to get the one item they really wanted. Eventually these people will come to their senses. When they do, they will stop being your customer and become your angry enemy.

So enjoy it now. There is a day of reckoning. And when it comes, I'll have no problem issuing the "I Told You So" threads. This gem cash cow is sick and it will stay that way as long as you continue to take money for over priced gambling. The short run is fun until it no longer is.

I can guarantee that it is one new item from anywhere in the tier. Since there's only one tier so far, I will assume that it applies to all tiers & regardless if the item falls under the 50 gem or 150 gem chests. I tried the "magic" chest & indeed got a brand new item, but it was from a 50 gem chest.


Hmm, thanks for letting me know. I think I rather spend 50 and 150 getting anything rather than gamble 230 gems away at the risk of getting a 50 gem item.

This^. I just stupidly spent 230 gems to open it, then came here to find out I could have gotten the item in any of the chests. Extremely lame!

Hey guys!

Just since I don't know if I've ever mentioned it - we do have a task to investigate these issues. It's more complicated than you'd imagine to look into, as really all the event does is take a quick snapshot of your entry (kinda like the "Download Outfit Image" button). But it's a thing we're certainly aware of and intend to try to fix!

Empty rooms are actually even more difficult, given the number of possible items that could be hiding in any one entry - but we'll see what we can do anyway :heart:

I also want to thank you for reply about our entries where some items didn't show up. I really hope my room is submitted like I wanted it to be.

Have great day :)

I wonder if it has anything to do with the lag some are experiencing? Their Yo cant get out of the picture before the snapshot is taken because the lag wont let them leave quick enough. Doesn't explain the other issues, but it could be a number of things going on

I see I am not the only one who is tired of these contests. Yes, "free" items are nice, but I never want to decorate my actual Yo properties anymore because of having to do the contest. I don't have to, I know, but that's where the interesting items come from now. About half the time (almost always on decorating days) I can't face playing Yo anymore. I've been playing since Sept. 2009, but this might get me to quit. It's tiresome.

I dont expect something for nothing...…..Lets be honest,,,,,...….Ive seen some junk rooms.....Rooms that didn't even fit the description of event get 5.5 and 5.8 ratings......and mine get 3.2 and 3.1 ratings...and im very creative....all I was saying was its hard for newer players to spend 500k to 1 million chips in one month on gem events and im am very thankful to BVG for giving me a chance to play for the gems......if you don't max the bonus out of chosen items/theme....rates are even lower on rooms and chance of getting better gems is lowered...….So you are right no one is forcing you to spend the coins...but if you expect a better rating you HAVE to spend it.....and even than ,still might not get a good score....I do expect the playing field to be fair......It should be based on your creativity not amount of Coins or YC you spent..!!!!
