[EVENT] Cyborg Summer Event!

Postby Viking Sarah » Fri May 24, 2019 4:29 pm

0110011...beep, bloop, beep, 001100100....bleep.....01011....transmission ..... incoming. Bleep, boop.

Hey YoFans!

It seems the robots have become self-aware and they're taking over our next event! Welcome to the Cyborg Summer Event!

Get ready for another round of awesome gem-filled fun and make sure to collect the wonderful Shabby Chic Part Two Rewards!

Before the transmission ends, let's go over how this works again:

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.
    Don't forget 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 Shabby Chic Part Two-themed items. You'll receive 1 common item from the Wooden Chest, or 1 rare-or-better item from the Mega Chest. To guarantee one brand new EMY2019 Event exclusive (also available in the other two Chests), take advantage of the 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:

You guys are evil. I don't wanna do challenges, but I get free stuff. *sigh*

Why would you start a May event on the 30th of May? :dizzy:

And why just a day or two before a new theme starts?

It's also quite laughable how you're already repeating gem event themes :dizzy:

It's even more ridiculous that you've chosen to do Shabby Chic, when you know players have been crying for a full shabby theme for years.

So this isn't about cyborgs? Why is it labeled "Cyborg"? I'm now thrilled for my friends who like Shabby and excited not to participate. :haha:

I was confused by that also. So the event awards shabby chic items but the challenges correlate with the next theme? is that right?

So its shabby cyborg chic? Whatever.
I dont do these events anymore for so many reasons. Now I am just mad that you knew how much a lot of us wanted shabby chic in stores and you put it as a rerun in a gem event? I have so much to say but in my present mood, I will get a kick to the curb and have to look through the peephole for a few days.
Live your life the way you choose. Let me do the same. Just remember that your way is not my way and we will get along just fine.
my giveaway home. 3-4 items max please and tell me what room its in.

It's depressing to see so much negativity for all things free or not.. and yep I see the irony in posting a post that is negative and adds to the whole mess

How is it free?

We have to spend coins and yocash in order to participate.

If we want all the items, we have to spend 1700 YoCash.

I think we're allowed to complain when we're paying.

To be honest, I'm not really bothered that it's a repeat, I'd love it if we got more Bohemian items.

What I have an issue with is the fact players have been asking for Shabby Chic as a full theme since well before BVG took over, and yet the two times Shabby Chic items have been available, they've been locked in gem events where you'd need to pay 1700 YoCash / $170 in order to get all of the items.

This isn't BVG giving us what we want, this is BVG locking something we want behind a paywall so that we're forced to spend money if we actually want the good items. I mean, we can purchase them from the Auction House for coins - but often they're in the millions (at least for the good items) and the only alternative is to purchase gems.

Once again, I'm really feeling the love from BVG :yawn:

Its only free to the people who only participate just for the free items but for those who would wish to have all the items or even certain ones its not free. That is why a lot seem to enjoy them for the free things they get. I don't like the gem events and I will express that as much as I please. I don't participate just to get free things I don't participate at all because I would much rather buy the things in the store. :)
