YoCash Ruined YoVille/YoWorld

Postby Max (177607266) » Tue Apr 06, 2021 4:35 am

You can barely even play the game anymore because cash is impossible to come by. I even have the dumb useless mobile companion app. Honestly, I used to love this game, I don't know why they ruined it by adding unobtainable currency and making anything worthy of having cost cash. Coins have basically become useless. You can't buy nice houses with more than 2 rooms, you can't buy facial features, clothes, nice furniture, etc unless you have cash. Either make it easy to earn or just get rid of it altogether.Thank you developers for ruining a game because capitalism right? :heartbroken:

Ok, how do you expect people to get paid for developing the new themes, games, etc? Free is never actually free. Ads dont bring in enough revenue for most companies to survive, let alone thrive. Look at how many online business(and lets face it, games are businesses) have gone from the net because they didnt have resources. Who will pay for server space, dev salaries, marketing and all of that without a cash based currency?
The free bits of this game are paid for by cash. So making it easier to get cash would result in less free stuff. It would go even further into a pay to play game. So, take those two room houses, connect them with a cheap arrow, save your coins, do all the extras, make buddies to get chests from and be happy that all cash items in game besides houses are actually obtainable with coins and trading.
Or just keep complaining about the cash and hope it disappears and lose the game entirely.
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.

You have played since 2011 so you know this is a trading/decorating game right? You also must realise its a business that has to make money or it wont exist, and YC is the way they do that, by getting players to pay real money for VIP and by selling YC for real money. If you want to play for free thats of course perfectly possible but there are some drawbacks, and you might have to try a bit harder to get the things that can only be obtained with YC.

As an older player too, I have a lot of older stuff, and I continually sell in the AH for YC, its not quick, but if you price fairly it does sell.

Shorty and Mrs Poker already covered everything.

It still irks me that a lot of people play and don’t pay, but it was pointed out that any active player, regardless, is good for the game, and I get that. To complain about something that you’re getting for free, though...

False - You can buy all the cash you want. No one is stopping you.

Oh wait.......you meant "FREE YOCASH". I hope you try the same angle the next time you try to buy something on Amazon. Or go to a movie. Or hit up the grocery store and ask them where the free stuff is at. Oh that's right - THEY DON'T GIVE ANYTHING AWAY FOR FREE.

To mirror what was said before, YoCash (or premium currency) is what allows us to offer a free to play game while also contributing funding the studio so we can continue to create new content. Without the presence of premium currency (YoCash), we would not have the team that we do!

So what you're saying is you want stuff basically free. You don't want to pay cash for anything for a game you enjoy, where the company has bills and employees to pay. You are entitled to get what you want without having to fork out cash?
Capitalism rocks. Start your own business and then come back.

While I do wish we had some more good coin items (npcs, for instance) and could filter the stores by coin and cash items, there does seem to be a good variety of items in the game for either coin or cash. The cash items just do sensibly have higher quality.

BVG has given us ads that we can earn cash on daily and we also have the option to sell our items in cash in the auction house. You also mention the mobile app, which I have and know that I do earn some cash and coin on. So, there are some ways to attain cash without actually paying into the game. It's pretty phenomenal to think about the options we do have.

YoCash keeps Yo running and pays for it to be expanded. I'll never understand this "free" expectation. I guess Zynga started it by allowing players to earn it instead of buying it? We can still earn one a day. That's something. But 100% free? That's just ridiculous.

I've never bought yocash because of my financial situation, but I have bought tons of yocash houses and a little yocash furniture using the free yocash that they give us. I know my avatar doesn't wear all the fanciest things, and I can't buy all the npcs and elaborate decorating items, but I'm just gratefully that I have all these fun houses to decorate.

To the OP, those of us that buy yc enable the game to be "free" for those who don't. We support the game company so they can keep the game we love.

I buy yocash when I can and when I can't I can usually find someone selling it in game.
Coins can still buy lots of stuff!
Bills need to be paid, employees need to be paid, taxes must be paid.
I'm just happy we still have this game.

I definitely see your point.. Too many yocash items and it gets expensive especially when items are tied to deals o_o
