The Rets In The Raffle

Postby Rod (126579776) » Wed May 15, 2019 4:39 pm

I'd like to point out something for BVG to consider with the stuff they are raffling. The Pink Rets and Blue Rets were collectibles. We have been told multiple times that Zynga collectibles would NEVER be offered by BVG. Now I do understand the technicality of these being items recovered from bad players and simply being added back, but that doesn't change the spirit of what is going on here. BVG placed 6 collectibles that were removed from Yo back into Yo AT A PRICE. That constitutes selling in my book and if it isn't stinky, it sure is starting to get ripe.

Be wary of your steps, because the quicksand is everywhere and players have long memories. :angel: :smug:

I think these items should have been offered as prizes in a contest that players could have entered rather that re-introducing them into the game through a means of selling and profit.

True. But hey, what do they care as long as people are willing to gamble insane amounts of cash for a tiny chance of getting the items?

I find this move by BVG a power cash GRAB like ZYNGA did when they started re-releasing all the old themes. I am cancelling my VIP NOW

If the players did not leave yoworld there still going to be the same amount of collectables in the game there not adding any collectables into game there just giving it to other players to raffle on. This is kinda like players gifting them when they leave the game.

Kinda........except BVG is going to generate a pile of revenue from the raffle. That is the definition of SELLING in any court in the world. :smug:

When a casino puts a Corvette up as a prize for slots, the cost of that Corvette is considered cost of sales. The Sales numbers come from the slot revenues. These raffle revenues are "gambling revenues" and the rets are the items "sold".

I agree and it's very interesting, as we all know why and what happened when Zynga started re-releasing all the old themes!

It seems like all BVG wants us to do is gamble, gamble, gamble. It probably would’ve went over a lot easier if there was a way that players could’ve earned these items. Like some sort of contest? I realized that it is iffy for them to basically be reselling these items. But it is the 11th year Yo-Anniversary after all! 11 full years of trying to get us to the casino :party:

I do not agree. Items sitting in dormant accounts are NOT in the game as far as I am concerned. Do you know how many of those items are available to BigV? Do you know very many people who left the game who left their inventories full of those items? I don't. I sure know many who sold them before leaving, however.
As far as I am concerned, they broke their promise. I do not care how they describe what they are doing or why. Rod is right.

I agree 100%. It's a slippery slope from here on out. And I would imagine, especially for players that own these items, that trust has been broken over this , and BVG won't get it back. o_o

Good point Rod, but i doubt anyone is going to explain to us once again why our trust has been broken once again. If they decide to respond it will be either lies or some excuse. Like some said ppl gave permission to take those items from their account, year right in all my years on yo and so many ppl i know and have known that left they never left their account with all their stuff behind. They sold their items and gave the coins to their friends or family or gifted all their items. Some ppl just fall for anything, just like the bs we got with the 50 shades. If you pull some stuff like this at least stand up for what u did not give us a bunch of bs lies and excuses and worst of all just ignore. Some ppl will say they stop the support and go back on their word but some ppl, me included who will stick to their word. Once my gold supporter badge was gone i didn't spent a dime on this game since.

I see it as a good thing because if they make a bunch of cash selling a few things, are game stays open longer.
idk, I am not a gambler in most ways, so the raffle is enjoyable to me.

Yeah, I call Bs but there's no way of proving it and they know people will believe them :dizzy:

I do not know most of the Vikings or when they were hired or what they know about our history or promises BigV made to us but I do know Viking Andrew was here when these promises were made and I hope he remembers.
