Wow, I missed it completely and didn't know what people were talking about until I started to read this thread. And I log in every single day, at LEAST once!

Unless they're planning to remove the gem tasks from the storylines, yeah, that wouldn't make sense. I forgot they even had those in there. I didn't get too far the one time I got to try it out.

Well they can't run them together it seems, so something will have to change!


I'm hoping maybe they'll alternate them, or better yet, do away with the gem events. If they can find a way to make them work simultaneously, I guess that's ok, but also more chores. I wonder what happened to that other thing - I can't think of the name of it. They did it in place of the gem events. The one we got the starry projector thing and some cloud tiles from. That wasn't super exciting, but it was a break from the gems. I wonder if they're experimenting with trying to mix it up a bit.

Temporarily unavailable is turning into ignore the YoWorld people and keep it permanently unavailable, I dislike being lied to about things, just tell the truth BVG.

Lisa, that was Island Treasure Event. And it was also a gem event (although with different mechanics than all the others we had) – players also could buy gems there, or request and send them.

And the reason we never had one like that again? Well, I guess it did not really make much money, since players could get most of the prizes just with sending and requesting gems. We did not really have to spend a single dime on outfits, rooms or gems (remember, the Island Treasure Event run for only for a week).

It was nice, because it provided rewards for simple chores (like storylines do), but since it was run as a gem event there would be big deficit in revenue if they run it in place of regular gem event that runs for a full month.

Until the classic gem events keep on generating revenue (both directly by sales of gems and indirectly by sales of items for outfits or rooms), they will be here.

And even when they stop generating revenue / begin stagnating we are more likely to get something that will require as much time and resources on our part or more.

Very true, John. Excellent points. :sad: It's getting exhausting trying to chase items, be it through gambling cash on gems or contributing indirectly by buying stuff in the AH. And doing actions for free gems. And making outfits or rooms for free gems :dizzy: But they're banking on us trying to chase every item because so many of us do. I've been guilty of it in the past, but have toned it down and no longer buy gems. But go figure, they make a theme where I want so many things that I'll cave and overpay in the AH. Ok, I'm trying not to rant, but I'm sleepy :haha:

If we all just stopped, they'd stop, I guess. But then they'd suck us in with some other thing :nerd:

When they posted this event I saw the server jump from 3000+ people to 5000+ it got so bad the game crashed.

This isn't the first time it's happened.

Viking David,
Is the Storyline going to come back? Or is it something that can't be repaired?

Please update us.

Thanks

I hope it stays at least until new challenge comes in the event, since right now I am stuck at the 7th chapter. :sleepy:

I forgot Viking David left, I think it's Viking Sarah now???

Well, I hear that some people have the Storyline back, but I don't have it yet. Maybe they decided to roll it out slowly this time so it won't break the game the way it did before. I hope I get it soon!!!

Hey everyone,

We are slowly rolling out the storylines to random chunks of users at a time. This is reduce stress on the game and try to help ensure a smooth rollout. The devs are actively watching how the game performs as the rollout takes place so they can get out ahead if there any issues.. At this time, I can't tell you when it will be available to you, but the hope is that all players will have access by this evening.

Thank you for your patience,

Viking Matt
