[EVENT] Anniversary Event!

Postby Viking Sarah » Mon Apr 22, 2019 3:08 pm

Hey YoFans,

11 years and counting! There's no better time than now for the brand new Anniversary Event!
Get ready for another round of awesome gem-filled fun and make sure to collect the wonderful Vintage Collection Rewards!

11 years is a long time, so let's refresh our memories on how this will work:

Step 1: Hang Out
    • Every day, complete Hang Out tasks to earn a free item and a Token! Optional Bonus Challenges will give you Gems, too!

Step 2: Participate in Challenges
    Enter on the first day of each Challenge. Each Challenge has requirements that must be met before submitting, and optional criteria to earn a Rating Boost!
    • You can leave and come back to your creation at any time before submitting - just be sure to come back before the deadline to hit the button so you're eligible for voting! No edits will be permitted after submitting. If you start an entry but don't submit it, your items will be returned to your inventory no more than 24 hours after the end of that Challenge.
    NEW this event, you will see less templates to choose from when preparing to design. One default room will be available for decorating and two default outfits to choose from, male or female, when dressing up the Yo.
    To vote, come back on the second day of each Challenge! You'll earn Gems for voting a minimum of 5 times, but you can keep voting past that if you wish.
    Collect results on the third day of each Challenge. Your Star Rating is calculated based on how other YoFans have voted! Rating Boosts will be added to your voting score.
    • Prizes for these Challenges may include Gems, YoCash, or even Silver Tokens! (More about these in Step 3 below)
    • At the end of the Event, all items used for your submissions are yours to keep. Items and Rooms are given at the end of each Challenge. Outfit Slots can be claimed at the end of the Event!


Step 3: Get rewards!
    Open Event Chests using your Gems! These Chests contain existing in-store items as well as new Vintage Collection-themed items. You'll receive 1 common item from the Wooden Chest, or 1 rare-or-better item from the Mega Chest. To guarantee 1 brand new EAP2019 Event exclusive (also available in the other two Chests), take advantage of the new Magic Chest!
    • Click on any unlocked item in the Rewards tab to see the item name!
    • Silver Tokens unlock even more cool prizes - your Silver Token progress can be seen at the top of the Event pop-up.
    • You can trade YoCash for Gems if you want to open more Chests. Check back frequently for updated Daily Deals and New Tier Deals!

As a reminder...
    • Each day begins at 4pm EST, which is now 20:00 game time (UTC).
    • To fulfill requirements in Outfit Challenges, you can use pants, skirts, or shorts interchangeably! This also applies to shirts or jackets!
    You can now delete Challenge Rooms if you want to!!!

If you have questions to ask or feedback to share, this is the place to do it! :heart:

The rewards for this theme look like things which should've been included in Atlantic Voyage, Boardwalk Casino and Victorian Christmas.

Thankfully, I'm not into vintage items. :)

Yea and they gave us a lovely rotary phone, which I rather like, but it's hand held.. what is the point in that ? Who the hell walks around carrying a rotary telephone ? :dizzy:

On another note.. I like the free room, thanks for that. I would love to see those doors in the depot :)

Those of us in our group were wondering how the items from the Gem Challenge are selected for each individual account. When the topic was discussed, we all were recieving items we didn't like but the people that didn't get those items were saying they would have loved to get them. This doesn't sound like a random choosing since it was everyone in group had this issue. It makes me wonder, if possibly the computer's parameters set slightly off. Is it set to choose items we don't have in our inventory (therefore increasing the likelihood we getting things we dislike)? If so, can you reevaluate the settings to have it choose items that are similar to what is in our inventory already? Thanks for listening, & considering this discrepancy, We Love our Yoworld

I got a vintage vac and thought ooo how wonderful .. but unfortunately, for some unknown reason, it lies down and is animated .. what is the point? Why is everything animated or clickable or interactive ? it's just not necessary to over complicate things. You know sometimes, less is more

Probably a reason to justify the high YoCash prices...

When the item is big/huge or does something it is easier to justify to yourself that you are spending so much YoCash (or real money) on it.

I'm a bit confused as to why so many of you are opposed to the Anniversary Event, and the events prior this one. Many people enjoy them and if you don't like or want to enter, you lose nothing (but I noticed no complaints when the rewards were "shabby chic" items). Let the event continue for those who do like to participate. Chill peeps! :idea: :)

BVG trying to justify things to themselves too. It really is discouraging when they continue to do these things. They just seem to go out of their way to make things more difficult. They can't even do a simple thing like enable black space decorating in these challenges, which proves they have absolutely no idea what this game is all about and obviously don't play it either :(

I'm quite happy to allow the players who want to enjoy these events to do so. They are paying for me to play. :thumbsup:
