exactly...after the event ends the outfits as well as hair and facial features we selected as our entry will appear in our outfits category...another thing that makes absolutely no sense as deleting that outfit will open up an empty outfit slot screwing BVG from the yc I would of used to purchase another outfit box.

Whatever eyes you are wearing at the time of the challenge entry will be available in the starter.

Ok I get what your saying but if you don't choose the starter one an choose any of the others you still get those items for free whos to say that BVG want decide to add all the older items whenever they so choose down the road?

I'm sorry but I do not understand what you mean. I am not a fashion yo...I have very few facial selections in my inventory and what I noticed is the fact that upon playing gem events I now have a huge amount of facial features and hairs and clothes in my inventory that I did not purchase...they say challenge item on them..several times I have had duplicates of items I have purchased appear in my inventory due to this and it makes me angry...why bother purchasing anything when this is going on..I am not 100% sure about the pink eyes...I however did take note that once the green ones appeared on the avatars we had to choose from to participate in gem event the value of the greens have dropped considerably. Time will tell I guess with the pinks...I do not purchase for resell purposes..I buy what I like and I keep...however if I am correct about this I can see it causing yet another huge drop in players...

You're right in that the starter outfits do have facial features in them, and whichever starter outfit you choose (apart from the last two which contain your current facial features), those features will be added to your inventory. That being said, the starter outfits never contain items which aren't readily available for anyone to buy: they don't contain VIP items, expired items, or gem challenge exclusives. (Although there was once a slip up with a VIP item getting thrown in a starter outfit.) Therefore any item that you've invested in that is now unavailable should be safe from the gem challenge "inflation" phenomenon. The features you see in the last two starter outfits are the ones you're wearing at that moment on your avatar. :thumbsup:

From my highly personal viewpoint, the items that get selected as starter ones are often in the lower end of desirability, but you're not alone in voicing concern that doling out free stuff will decrease its resell value. I occasionally buy items with the express purpose of reselling, so it does give me some concern as well.

wish I knew how to provide pictures to prove this but I do not so if you do not believe me and have been participating in gem events then go check your own inventories...check your saved outfit slots...I have 16 lips...21 eyes...16 eyebrows...17 noses...3 mouths and 18 hairs that state challenge item..they,as well as the outfits were plopped in my inventory for free after the gem event ended. ALL of these items have been available in store recently to purchase for yc...my point is why would anyone bother purchasing from store for yc or purchasing from another player with coins when odds are they could wind up getting it for free in these events.

(Responding to the bolded part) yeah, this is a good point. Like I said in my previous message, many players have been voicing their concerns over this phenomenon. The same applies for deco items in the gem event, some of which are valued at 20+ YC. Many of those items have virtually lost their value due to them flooding the market from the gem events. The resale market is becoming precarious and less profitable. It is also annoying to have our inventories be full of un-resellable stuff like the challenge items. So I can definitely see where you're coming from.

correct,however that is not my point...please note my avatar now,minus the swimsuit...the hair and all my facial features are from the mg2018 theme...all are still available to buy in store,with a few items on a discount atm...however when this theme was released it would of cost me 28yc to purchase them all at released prices...and an insane amount of coins via dealers or the auction house...every single one of them I am now wearing for free as I did not purchase them.

I get what you are saying. As a matter of fact, yesterday I spent some time selling off the items I paid for if I had them now for free as a challenge item. I'll just keep the free one.

All the Magic Box does is ensure you get a "NEW" item! It could be any quality, but it is guaranteed to be new! :hug:

Thanks for the 300 gems but it is still old stuff when we open the chest, I know because both me and my sister open this morning and I see ppl on this forum also got old stuff. When are you going to change the items? It would be good to know because if it continues to be old stuff I will not enter the Contest. I will not spend lots of Money to recive the same things again. If we get old stuff we should be able to use old stuff in the Contest and not have to be force to buy new stuff. :sad:

You should have automatically been refunded the 5 cash. Check your log and see if you can find it.

Item NOT yet available in AH
Could someone explain me how is it possible that after only One Challenge and 1 Tier available, these NEW items are already for sale in AH?
I add, even if someone scored a 5.8 should has got max 80 points in the Silver Bar (so 1 new Mystery Reward) and the second new Myster Reward unlocks at 100 points :) . The new 2nd Tier is supposed to be available from this evening not now.

Here below the 2 items and then the 1st tier items.
