Is everything in this theme only set to turn two ways? Even the tables can only be set on one side because the plates with cutlery only turn two ways. It seems to be becoming more predominant in all the themes, but this one is the worst. I love the idea of this theme, but I'm frustrated that I can't really decorate properly.

Unicorns are a great idea. Most people I play with enjoy them and they'll spend a wad on them.

Not me, but they will. LOL

I do still have one gifted unicorn item. But I wear it in shame only when the person who gifted it to me peer pressures me to be thankful. :haha:

Hey there, Denna! Great catch on these details!

I brought this issue up to the team to find out what's been happening and what the solution will be going forward. Hopefully this will all make sense and make things a lot easier for everyone going forward.

In full disclosure, it looks as if there has been some inconsistency regarding pack pricing recently, and for that we offer our apologies for any confusion it may have caused. Our team uses metrics, stats, data, (insert another word for numbers here), and we rely on a continually updated pricing guide based on these numbers when we release these items to you and create these promotions. After looking into it further, it looks like some wires were crossed in our guide which caused some pack prices to not be consistent.

Let's dig a little deeper by taking a look at this morning's Spirit Unicorn Yober Pack to help explain the prices you're seeing:
Image
  • The Yobers can be purchased for 6 YoCash each, for a total of 24 YoCash if you purchased them all individually
  • Purchasing the pack offered a discount on these four Yobers, plus the exclusive Animated Celestial Unicorn Yober (priced at 8 YoCash, but unavailable for purchase outside of the pack)
  • This equals the original pack price of 32 YoCash, which was shown to players.
  • The discount of 20% applies to the original pack price

Going forward, this is the pricing consistency you should expect to see in discounted packs featuring exclusive items, so I hope this makes things a bit easier. Of course, if you happen to be unsure about the math involved on a promotion, or have more questions, please definitely let us know! :heart:


Thank you very much for this ^ ^Sarah. :rose:

Idk why I thought that exclusive was free bonus item if you buy package... :eh: I could swear it was, in the past...

But ok, if I am wrong, I am wrong... :thumbsup: :D

The "price" of the exclusive should not be included in the price of the pack.

It's a stupid marketing gimmick.

The plates turn 4 ways for me. :eh: They were a huge pain to turn tho, as I had 26 settings.

So really we end up paying 1 YoCash more for the "free" one that has a non-existent price of 8 YoCash (since it's not available in the store but only in this "deal")? :dizzy:

Not enough good items for this theme. Always the same stuff. So I'm stuck with using older items.

Thanks for posting this!!! The new "deal" is a complete price gouge! Just look at the price difference! :grr I really hope they do not continue the "new" way in the future. If so, I really fear for this game.

I realize this is a two week theme but we have received only one costume so far? I really thought by now we would be swimming in a sea of choices but the NPC's have better coz choices then we do at the moment.. come on BVG release the kraken already.

Laura, it seems there have been released new VIP outfits (finally). But perhaps they should have not been released at the cost of the outfits in regular store (like it looks now).

Thanks everyone for your feedback on this! I will be bringing these concerns to the team to re-open the discussion on how packs featuring exclusives are presented and priced. Stay tuned! :heart:
