I already snagged the bottle of beer which is perfect since I'm still hanging out in my Pub. :) Hope to get a couple of those Park Rangers.

what a fun idea!! I've been getting bored with the gem events, but I love exploring our National Parks. I'm headed to Zion and Bryce Canyon this month and I live in the Grand Canyon State. Can't wait to see what prizes await us :)

Does anyone have a list or link to a list of what the 'prizes' will be? As the free room is an indoor room - yeah, not too promising for a National Park Theme - I'm not very excited.

I guess I'm curious to see if there would be anything I might be interested in that I WILL ABSOLUTELY NEVER HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN because I only 'win' useless stuff that I wouldn't spend the amount of coins to buy outright but have to spend on theme items to enter challenges. (No, I don't consider what I get from the boxes to be either 'prizes' or 'winnings' when I've essentially paid for them but don't get to pick what I receive in the box.) That way I can be on the lookout to pay price-jackers in the AH many times more for something than it would have cost for in a regular store.

I might not totally hate the Gem Events if, at the very least, if we could pick whether we want wearables or furniture items. Then I might have the slightest possible chance to get something I'd ever use. I'm a decorator and yes, my first box contained boring clothing - wow another pair of nondescript green pants and pair of shoes with other items that I'll never use and that are virtually worthless to try to sell in the AH. (I only got suckered into entering because the hairs were cute from the last theme so I already had some of them.) I get clothing the vast majority of the time (and GE clothing is the most boring released in the game...and sometimes I get the same exact outfits twice, though that isn't supposed to happen.

I know some people like dressing up and they should have the opportunity to choose those items if they want them. Give people a chance to get something they'd use or GIVE US THE OPPORTUNITY TO OPT OUT OF THE ENTIRE LAG-INDUCING ANNOYANCE CALLED 'GEM EVENTS.' I'm not asking for them to be cancelled (though I'd LOVE that,) for those who enjoy them. I'm just asking that those of us who don't be allowed to have a way of avoiding them (and avoid being bombarded with buddy requests by strangers at hangouts that we have to participate in to get rid of the annoying icon) and the hangouts/icon. That consideration for player preferences CAN'T be that difficult.

I feel the same with 'deals' to buy currency. I don't like buying 'surprises' which is code for 'what I don't want.' I used to get suckered into giving BVG $5 at a pop trying to 'win' the only option of an item included with purchase...only to get 4 of the exact same least favorite/unwanted one. They say it's random, but consistently getting the same thing gives 'random' a new definition. This piggy bank is closed - I'm not giving BVG money unless I'm buying what I want. I want to buy, not gamble and always lose.

Thanks in advance to anyone who has a list or link to the list of items.

Spoilers aren't allowed here, so you're not likely to find them here. However, Lyndy posts the tiers here as she unlocks them for every event. Here's the current thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=228005

I feel you 100% on this. I hate the gambling aspect of the game, and that's what the game has devolved to, sadly. They do it because many are happy to keep gambling and throwing cash at them, and the gem events are only one of many gambling tactics they use. I hate the GEs but still do them sometimes just as something to do and for a few crap items I might be able to sell. I feel guilty for supporting it by doing them at all, but some days I don't care and just need a distraction and maybe something to sell. I don't go out of my way for them, though. I wish they'd end them or change them, but apparently it's an easy money maker for them because so many are ok with the gambling. Same with the crack boxes.

So far I've gotten a onesie, an outfit, and a HH item. It's like you don't even know me. :'( :haha:

Could we please have an option to choose whether we want clothing or decor? More people might do the GEs if that were possible.

Thanks so much for the info LisaTM!

Another day in the Gem Event, 2 more boxes opened. I 'won' yet another worthless 'epic' (what a joke) male outfit and a onesie. That's it...I'm DONE with the GEs for another month. It's not random when every single box opened holds garbage.

This theme would've been better suited for Yodepot (I know it sounds crazy). Different types of climates, plants, animals, etc...water features, mountains, tar pits, :shocked: It could've kept people doing landscapes for-ev-er. It's been diminished to ugly costumes and a mossy rock so far. :haha: Ugh. o_o

Ok so the NP (which I would love, I just got back from Yosemite) is an indoor room, but the things I've gotten in the GE prizes are all outdoor things....a shed, a canoe.....I don't get it. Are we going to get an outdoor scene to go with this? Maybe with a pretty lake?

Is the Scenic Modular Room only available if we progress through the GE? That doesn't seem right. We can't buy rooms in the AH.

Not a "happy camper" with the items in the National Park Event!! Sick of all the clothes. The same gifts are in the 50, 150, and 230 items!! I play on several family members and have multi- characters and have seen this happening a lot in this event!! Please fix this Yoworld. :grr :grr
Usually when I click on the 150 chest in previous games, I would get an above average gift---but with the 150 chest from the National Park theme---I've received a National Park hat and many single clothes items!!
Wish the moose and the waterfall wasn't a Yober but an item you could place in your homes. So many Yobers--Not happy!
This Gem Event is disappointing and a waste of my time!! :wailing: :wailing:
