It's ridiculous, rather than spending 50 cash on items to get the bonus you might as well just buy a 500 Gem refill.

The room is amazing! Would've loved it as part of a full house with a full theme... :)

The entire gem event is designed to get you to "want" the items for free, so you in effect dislodge your normal value discretion in order to satisfy the "want". Once your pleasure lobe is massaged by a few wins, your endorphins crave more massaging and so you willingly release your coins and yo cash to do so. Even when you sometimes know you shouldn't, you are STILL spending coins and yo cash trying to make sure your entries are validated so you can therefore "win" more free stuff. But the truth is that you ended up buying more and paying more for it than you would if it was just in the store.

But people eat it up. It is the exact same result in a casino. When people are given marginal "wins", they are much more susceptible to escalated spending in order to scratch that "win" itch again. If you speak with anyone coming out of the casino after losing their ass, they will tell you it was an awesome visit and they had a blast. It takes a few hours for the endorphins to wear off and and for sanity to return when they realize it will be mac n cheese & ramen noodles for a week.

BVG is no slouch at this now. I imagine they are sending their marketing team to gambling training and seminars. So many of my buddies cuss this game and what BVG is doing with it now because the magic is wearing thin. They don't want Medieval 3 (I do!!), they want that new Contemporary stuff and it is driving them insane. I expect they will lose control at some point and give in to their wants......and then come to complain after the endorphins wear off. BVG is using up the "good will" they have earned from too many players. It will come for them eventually.

i was planning to not spend any money on this one, just to collect the bare minimum but its interesting how you wired it in that we must add 3 items from the new theme to qualify for the 100 gem entry prize. i already have so many single use items in my inventory from these events i will not be bothering with this one. if you come out with any decor worth having for the contemporary room it will be cheaper and easier to buy it from another player. in the last 3 of these i spent a lot of money to end up with a bunch of handhelds and strange hats i will never use. hopefully if enough people stop spending on these events you will find something more interesting for us to do or better yet just release the themes in the shop so we can decide if we want the items considering the themes you have in the shop are just repeats of other ones. everything old is NOT new again.

Thank you for making me go to Altons for the action today. Also, THANK YOU for insisting on keeping the full-screen pop-up, which popped up not once but twice today. MUCH appreciated. Why does that pop-up even exist? It is completely unnecessary. No one wants to stay at the action place while completing the rest of their Gem Event functions (voting, etc). :grr

Yep.............


Me three. I want a way to opt out of the entire thing, and the accompanying lag.


I don't want your stupid cash grab game either. Please let us get that icon off our screen if we don't care to participate in your schemes.

It is so frustrating for so many good Yos. We all know we don't have to do it, but somehow it draws us in. I just take what I can get for free now and convert it into coins, no matter the value. I'll let the rich Yos enjoy themselves because obviously too many players have too many coins and yo cash.

:haha:

I wonder when you'll actually listen to players instead of purchases.

Your player satisfaction is rapidly decreasing, and you DO NOT care in the slightest.

Yep! They are dressing gambling up like a contest! I like a challenge but I have noticed it is harder to fill the boost bar for room challenges now! I hope they really aren't counting items in these themes as having been popular and successful since people buy a lot of them to fill the boost bar! I am beginning to feel like that poor housewife with her lament with regards to trying to get through to BVG with my feedback.

I'm most excited about the rooms staying in edit mode until they're submitted. Great to know we can come back to finish if we're called away for something and we won't lose our progress.

Would like to suggest making the room connectable. Currently, we're unable to connect the rooms with teleport arrows. Would love to use the completed rooms to expand properties via teleport arrows.

Thanks for the update. :thumbsup:

I think because we complained over and over again about making the hang out room in the gem effects the Alton Towers, they heard us, and now are making them all at that busy venue! Figures....

Help! I have a question about the gem challenges!

Postby Snowdrop (11604790) » Tue Jan 08, 2019 9:27 pm

Rather than test this out and possibly lose gems, could someone tell me what happens if you don't collect your challenge entry/rating rewards the day they are available? Can you wait as long as until the end of the month's gem event to collect those? I know it gives you the initial entry and voting gems immediately, but I want to know if the others can be saved or if they'll be lost if not collected within a certain amount of time. I'd rather save them until I have more tiers unlocked, if I can.
Thanks! :D

You can keep the rewards unclaimed for as long as you like – that is something I sometimes do.

Though do keep in mind that it might be harder to sell the items from the earlier tiers later on, since you can get an item out of any single unlocked tier, not just the recently unlocked one.

Well you can keep them up until you have 500 collected, then you cannot get anymore until you use them up (not actually true.you can get them, but they are lost, did that once...grrr). DO NOT use the 230 to cash them in as that is a joke, as I have gotten the same thing with the 150 and the 50. It is fun to cash them in though. You can get some pretty cool freebies. It depends on how you are getting them. If only doing the 5 free each day, yeah, you can save, but once at 500, same advice as above.
And on a side note, you do have to collect everyday, you don't have to use, but you do have to collect.....
So not sure what asking.....

Postby Necromancer (126579776) » Tue Jan 08, 2019 10:55 pm

I just did this. I only opened a 230 coin chest if I was about to go over 500. At the end of the gem event, I had enough challenge gems to open 9 more 230 coin chests.

I did not get a single 50 gem item out of my 9 chests - which is very unusual. I usually got 2 or 3 opening the chests as I went. But the big difference was what I hoped. I got to open 1 from the last tier and 3 from the next to last tier. The past 2 events I only got 1 item from either tier. That means I got FOUR TIMES as many from later tiers than my normal routine. This could have all been random chance, so take it with a grain of salt. I am trying it again this round. So we'll see.

:thumbsup:
