I hope you're able to get it, Autumn.



I don't expect anything free. I just want to spend the yocash I have already bought from them and this is the 2nd item this week I have suggested that have been in yocash deals. It is ridiculous how much they take advantage of us. I am totally against them putting items in yocash deals and not offering an alternative to buy the item in store even if it is at an over inflated price.

At the very least they could offer the option of buying the items from the VIP store. VIPs get very few perks as it is.

If they insist on putting decor items in the yocash deals, each item should be in individual lower tier packages of the same price so that we can choose which package(or packages) to buy. Then the highest tier could include all the items from the individual packages. There could also be mid-range tier packages where you get two of the same item of your choice.

I'm sorry the item you suggested was released this way, and I hope you are able to get it by other means at a reasonable price. :hug:

You would think they would offer this as an incentive to their VIP players, but it seems they aren't interested in actually making their VIP players have some additional perks.

Never in my life have I seen a company take customer love for their product and leverage it against them in every way possible.

It's breathtaking......and not in a good way o_o

I read in here recently someone using the analogy of Apple continuously upping their prices (can't remember who it was) but at least with Apple, they seriously bring it with product development.

They are constantly improving what they do, they strive for excellence and to be the best so customers are never expected to pay more for the same old same old.

Unlike here..........:drink:

I am so sorry, AG, that your idea was put in the top tier of a YoCash Deal :sad: :dizzy: They must have thought very highly of your idea since they were confident that people would buy the Platinum Deal for the trees. It is a high compliment for you :hug: I love those trees, they are amazing indeed. Too bad that not being a decorator, I did not buy the Platinum Deal and only bought the Silver one for the ninja and oni costumes. Otherwise, I would have sent you at least one tree, though I know you don't like anything free.

They're just burning what's left of the game. Tabs haven't worked for a week, you have to refresh two or three times to enter the game, video ads don't work. But to BVG is more important that we spend real money on fake money that we can't spend because there's NOTHING worth it in stores.

This sums things up well and was the last nerve for me too. This practice only works when the quality is deserving of it.

I am also tired of everything being in money deals. I get that they need to make money and I do buy some of the deals, but if they would put decor items in store, people would buy them over and over and then have to buy more YoCash (same with leaving stuff in the store versus vaulting but that's another discussion). :idea:

I'm like many others who have a pile of YoCash and nothing to spend it on, so rather than buying more that I don't need, I just keep my money and get what I want from AH or do without.

I've always admired the times they've actually used players' suggestions and have given us the content we so desperately crave. I thought that was pretty cool.
But once they started holding our ideas hostage by putting them in gem events and YC deals, my enthusiasm quickly died.
It's funny how they give us those surveys at the end of every theme...I'm assuming they're looking for feedback. I know I can't be the only person that writes how disappointed I am that the premium items are held hostage in deals which I refuse to partake in. I guess they don't really want honest feedback if they keep doing it anyways. :eh:
It blows...and I'm sorry your items as well as others' have been used in such a way.

What if all the items that are currently exclusive only to the YoCash deals, gem events, and poker dice events were made available in the VIP store in at least a basic version or different color variant? For instance, the new animated Wraith Ninja costume and animated trees that you can only get from the YoCash deal right now, what if you could buy them from the VIP store in a non-animated version? And the Oni Dark Samurai costume for example, could be available in the VIP store in a different color variant. Would that be any kind of solution?

It would give a huge extra perk to VIP customers, but would still allow for some level of enticement to play the gem events, poker dice events, or buy the YoCash deals.

I loved the trees as well. It really got me when I signed on and seen them in the deal. It might of been the item that made me start to decorate but nope not going to happen. Trees are staples. o_o As much as I love trees they are not worth $99 just to get them. :dizzy:

Wow just wow .They need to be ashamed of themselves for what they are doing to the game and it's loyal players.Well now we know why they saved the game and it wasn't for us it was because they saw dollar signs and a bunch of suckers who loved it. :nerd:

at this point i think its pretty obvious... they do see people complain about gem events but they also see most of those people complaining also caving and still feeding into the gem events. they know the sheep will continue to follow

Is it just me or does it seem like they're not doing much work of their own.When have you ever seen so many contests and they're using designs that didn't even win.I'd like to know if those people are getting any kind of reward for their trouble.Oh wait I know the answer to that of course they're not .I guess they think that people should just be happy for the privilege of having it in game.I bet they wouldn't like not getting paid for their work and ideas :nerd:

This is part of the reason why I am at the other end of it. I'm almost out of YC and I don't feel that any of the offers so far have been worth buying. I don't think that has ever happened during Halloween before. I've smashed a few piggy banks and that's it.

Same here. Nothing yet is worth buying. So these deals look hilarious with their fancy price tags. Maybe people are still buying it? They must be if this is how things are now. I miss when the stuff was just in the store. They didn't have to try all these fancy parlor tricks to try and get sales. These days I have to use third party databases just to find out what they secretly release in to the game. I can't justify otherwise spending $100+ on mystery items or half baked releases with skyrocketed prices masquerading as "deals".

This is all such a disappointment, but shouldn't have been a surprise for 2020. I was hoping this would be a bright spot in the dismal tone of this year. Grumble. :sad:
