Hello everyone!

We have heard your concerns regarding the floaties being YoCash only and a requirement. As a result, we are in the process of removing them as a requirement now, so please keep your eyes peeled for that.

If you are one of the people who have already submitted a room and bought a floatie for YoCash specifically to enter the challenge, we are looking into compensating you as you read this.

We apologize for this issue and hope you continue to enjoy the challenge!

I did buy a pizza floatie (that i really didn't want) with my very small amount of yocash.
Worst yet, I accidentally submitted the room when it wasn't nearly ready. I wanted to get all the required things in first, then I was going to put in the other fun party things. I wish I could go back and try again.
Oh well. At least I can continue on with the storyline now.

Hey Matt

I have a friend that paid a significant sum for a floatie in AH just to enter. Any chance of him getting a refund if he puts in a ticket? I mean you should be able to tell he stuck it in his entry right after buying it.

I understand some thought this was not right but BVG always makes sure there are coin items. I have always found coin items. I also know that items sometimes are given another name. There is a coin float in the store. I bought it and added it. I finished my room challenge with it.

Viking Matt, I have written repeatedly in the feedback threads for the gem events, as well as in other threads about them, stating that these events are still filled with glitches and no one answers and absolutely nothing has been done about it!

In the last challenge, once again we had loads of invisible clothing entries, clothing entries that were levitating and gigantic and blurry. The room entries showed the avatar in them and other things to show they were not complete, such as the arrows over furnishings to show they were to be rotated.


Why is nothing being done about the glitches when people are paying a LOT of real money to enter them! You may have taken away one requirement, but players still have to pay a LOT of YC and coins for hairs, yobers, accessories, furniture, etc. in order to get the full boost (pretty much the only way to be able to get 300 gems) and also to get the final prize. And even after spending so much, you don't always end up with either, as I have had full boosts for every event in the last contest and got below 4.5 ratings and did not get the final prize.

How can you keep taking money from people when they have absolutely zero chance of winning? I have been a victim of these glitches so even after spending YC, I was given zero chance to win anything. A forumer posted pictures showing mine and other entries came up blank for the clothing contest, even though I entered! I have also consistently had very low scores, even though I spend hours on doing both the clothing and the room events, spending money to fill the boost, adhering to the theme, making both room and clothing entries look really nice and got way less points than people who just wore the starting outfit or threw a bunch of items in the middle of the room that made no sense.

I really want answers to these questions. Why have all the glitches not been fixed? Why do you continue with such an unfair voting practice for the events? Why do the requirements for the boost keep costing more and more and the chances of getting full gems goes down? Why was the game changed so even if you enter and spend a lot of money on every event, you still may not get the final prize? And, finally, why can we not have the items in the gem events also put in the store, for people who do not wish to gamble but would love to buy them?

I hate the gem events and you keep putting decorating styles I have loved in real life for years and wanted in the game (like bohemian, shabby chic and now art deco) in the events. I can't afford to play the game this way and please let your bosses know that I canceled VIP that I had for years because of them, and I also am no longer buying cash pkgs because of them. Many people are angry about these events yet nothing changes. Is the short term gain worth losing long term customers?

Now I am just sad that the Paris theme is gone because so much of that stuff would compliment the gem event items.

Patmin, before they changed it one of the requirements asked specifically for "floatie" and unless the item had this word in the name, it would not count for the requirement. That is why there were some upset players. There was no work around with that. There was no coin item with the word "floatie" this time in the store (and still is not).

Either you had an item that had the word floatie in the name (there was one given out for free in the YoWorld Desktop App some time ago, and some coin ones were recently removed from the store with the AV2018 theme), bought one for YoCash, or else you could not make the submission since you did not fulfil the requirements.

Thankfuly they changed the "floatie" requirement to "pool" like Viking Matt mentioned.

Good morning :bye: :star: Dearest Viking Sarah :star:

Well, my Challenge Room poofed now, my yc and coins stuff are gone ; of course, i know that they're probably moved to my inventory BUT the issue is still the same since a few weeks... MY INVENTORY DOESN'T DOWNLOAD PROPERLY THEN I'M FORCED TO ADD, TO BUY NEW STUFF FROM THE STORE TO ENTER THE CHALLENGE ! Ironic Situation because of my inventory is a big, no i'm Sorry, it's a huge one...

Please, Dearest Viking Sarah, reply to my question : why the new feature / option / decoration way is available all the time and everywhere in the game EXCEPTED to enter the Room Decoration Challenge ? :nerd: Because, i need it ; i can't manage it in another way.

So now, 62k740 coins and 25yc gone "for nothing", i'm gonna buy them AGAIN and spend MORE TIME for this Challenge instead to enjoy the game. Thank you so much !

Regards, :rose:


Butterfly

P.S. : I'm therefore preparing 2 new expense reports pending a refund. And since a few days, i'm no more able to send gifts and to trade in the game. An idea about this ?

My inventory didn't download properly these last two times, and i decided to enter the Decorating Challenge (to avoid the AH) so in a way, i was "forced" to buy some new stuff from the Furniture Store etc. to be able to enter ; after sending a ticket and spending respectively 34k100c and two days ago, 62k725c and 6yc to get "only"... 50 gems result o_o (instead of 300 gems), i would like to know why i'm no more able to decorate in your Room Challenges ? :?:

Hi Rain!

This decision isn't mine to make, but I don't think it would hurt for that player to submit a ticket! I can't make any promises but they'll never know if they don't try!

Aloha,

Post: A Fair (Mid Summer's Night Event) Challenge?
Post by Kuulei (130585304) » Sat Jul 06, 2019 9:34 am

Q: "Challenges, Voting and Player Participation.

A players observation :D

Q: How is it that YW's "making a splash" challenge, "choose the room that you like best" was/is set up with the first challenger's room having ONLY the required items :thumbsup: and the other or second room with many + (more coins or cash)? Would this considered to be a fair challenge? :?:

I'd usually pick the one I like best but now, the underdog. Some players just don't have the Coins or Cash to spruce up a place (or outfit) but really enjoys entering the contests and challenges. Can this be technically altered/fixed? I would love to see a fair, semi-equally challenge vs. what we currently see." :heart:
