So here we are. The lack of clarity built expectations that were just shattered. This has upset the "have's", and made the many more "have not's" very happy. And then there's me, who doesn't care because you couldn't glue that hair on me. BUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTTTT.............

There's a market here you guys could exploit - the market that wants to exploit other players. There will always be demand for GOOD items that are available for a limited time. The key is GOOD ITEMS, unlike the dingdilly Monthly Exclusives that rarely hold value. So what's that mean? You guys need to use hairs. Good ones. And put them in these Sparkly Sales or whatever the hell you wanna call em. And yeah, that means you will make hairs that are only available for sale for 3 hours. But you will amp up the trading market something fierce. I watched complacent Yo's with mountains of coins suddenly sit up in their chairs and run each other over to get the one they wanted. That hasn't happened in a while.

So I'd suggest you try again.........and follow your original format. Maybe do it for one hour 3 times in one day to allow for peeps around the globe to get in? But by definition it won't be fair. And that's ok. You will drive peeps to Yo for 3 hours on that day and they will spend. And the aftermath of it will be continued spending as people work to find the ones they want.

Try again BVG. Please. :smug:

Glad it's been clarified because I posted the pic on fb of what Vikings posted and it's STILL got people still thinking it's a mistake a week later. :dizzy: I'm good for now, prices are still plummeting so I'll wait to buy the one I want. <plain color>

Someone posted on forum the sale was on so I jumped in game to buy the deal but checked AH before and found the colour I wanted for a good price for coins so I passed on the deal.

The idea of the spark sales are good but the items will have to be different each time for it to make any real impact, next time people will know the item is coming back so will just wait.

Correct. If i knew it would have been the same item, i wouldn't have spent so much coins to get one, good thing i didnt want a rare. I figured the next sale would have been a different item, not saying the hair wouldn't come back but good grief not back to back.. This item could be on sale for weeks. Who knows.

Since the items are coming back i will know not to buy the deal, just wait til it returns and the value drops....if it is something i like.

Whatever happened with the sale to double up and use bonuses up to a week?

This 'Spark Sale' WAS in Theory a great idea - but failed miserably for lack of foresight!
Although I was lucky enough to get the deal and the hair colours I wanted - I still think it was a failure for many.
Had the sale been the same style but different colours each time (which is what I thought would happen) - players would still be buzzing and Traders would be happy like a Pig in the proverbial! - instead everyone now has a case of the 'Meh!' and as it is the AH is still brimming with unwanted Bad Guys and those of us that have the hair don't view it as a collectible (if that was the initial idea behind the sale). I hope we have seen the last of this kind of 'Spark Sale' cos it was not the brightest of ideas IMHO.

:thumbsup: i actually prefer the old Exclusive sale we used to have on an occasional Sunday. i like this much better than the ME's and the Spark Sale. we would have two items to choose from and they had a much bigger quantity and were about for i think 5 or 6 hours. one of the most popular items in these was the Tiny Doghouse - EDIT - Theme Exclusives! i thought some of these had shorter timers. this one was 24hr but there was limited amount of items. you were limited to 3 each but they were around longer because a higher release amount. i think some of these may have been 10 & 20yc or 20 & 30yc??
