Is it taking more items to reach .80 bonus?

Postby Doodler (10729465) » Sat Sep 15, 2018 6:03 pm

Is it my imagination or is it taking more and more items to get the full bonus in the challenges? I only had to use 2 hairs and a few coin items at first. Last challenge it took 3 hairs. Now, this time I had to layer four hairs to make the .80 bonus? Not very fair!

It takes approx. 50yc of instore value to fill it up and it always did... I figured 2-3 hairs and 1-2 yc items mostly do the trick. :?:
In absurd I trust, and it shall prevail.
This is pure hogwash if y'all ask me...

The price of the items factors in a lot. Using 3 yocash items that cost 8 yocash each would fill up the bar faster than using 6 yocash items that cost 3 yocash each. I'm sure it's the same with coins.

I've just had a learning experience with my daughter as well....we usually trade things to use so we can get as high a bonus as possible. Lots of times there is only 1 item difference between us, or our eyes/hair are different, but the outfit itself is the same.


I chose a male avatar for the first time, and they only have to swap out 4 things, while a female has to swap out 5. I hit the .80 bonus then sent the items to my daughter.

She tried to wearing the same outfit but having to skip on one extra item, could only reach .78 . That skirt swap made all the difference, as there is no skirt higher than 1700 coins in store, and it uses up a slot that you could otherwise use for a yocash item!!

Why do females have to swap out skirt AND pants?? effectively losing a item spot that could be filled with something worth more bonus points!

Do they take the price of the item in the store or the price in a special? Like the hair was offered at 9yc, but it's 18 yc in the store. Then there is the fact that I bought them for coins in the AH. Would that make a difference?

I just tried it out. Hair gives you .25 bonus, so yes, if you are only using hair, it would take 4 of them. Back to the AH!

I used the hair, the female outfit (shirt, skirt, shoes, HH, scarf) VIP Balloon, and the scene gave me the full .80 boost

So, since you only get .75 for 3 hairs (which is 54 yc) it takes more than 50yc to fill it now. I thought it was about that before, but I think it changed.

So you still get the bonus even if you no longer have the items in your inventory? :?: There's something wrong with that somehow to me... :eh:

I'm not thrilled with having to buy so many new items to fill up for a bonus. And to me this time they didn't have much I wanted otherwise, I want to be able to use the items outside the challenge. Since this is a newer theme in my opinion, wasn't a lot to work with. And I'm not using up a bunch of my YoCash on things I don't like. Wish there were more outfit items to chose from this time! I am having fun with the challenges over all and I did get the 50 and 250 gem bonus last time. Probably will only get 50 this time, oh well.

Seeing some cute outfits here, glad everyone is having fun with this! :)

I'm definitely not a math whiz, but it seems like it's not purely based on a yc to bonus point. For a 5 yc item you get.13 bonus pkint, which is more per yc than an 18 yc hair.

As long as they are in your inventory when you hit submit then yes, you get the bonus. People on here have been discussing borrowing hair and lending hair for ages to help others get a higher bonus rating on gem challenges.

I'm more concerned about the fact that female avatars have MORE to do to complete the challenge...it seems a bit sexist!

It still seems wrong, as if you're cloning items like in the old days, for these events.

Females have more options when it comes to clothing and accessories than guys though so I don't see anything wrong. It's not as if you're forced to just use the theme items.

We aren't cloning, there is only ever one of each item available to us at any given time. Neither of us can equip the outfit afterwards unless we currently have all the items. It's a snapshot of you at a specific moment, not anything more. I have pictures of my avatar from ages ago that I no longer own those items as I've sold them or gifted them. That is not the same as cloning (which was where both of you had the items at the same time).

If you are trying to hit the bonus with mostly coin items and one or two small yocash items, then you have to only use the theme items. Neither of us ever buy the hairs (just not something either of us are into for the price), which means you have to layer and layer the current theme items to get anywhere near the full bonus score. She'll buy a few things for an outfit she wants to keep and I will too, and we both layer all of it on, keeping our chosen outfit on the top. For this challenge, we had three shirts, two belts, two scarves, a hat, two handhelds (yocash), pants, vest and a yober (yocash), socks and shoes - all from the theme. I was able to layer another vest on bringing me to .80, but she couldn't as she had to swap out a skirt as well, having to choose a 1700 coin item over the 2500 coin item I could use, in theme, but that difference meant she didn't reach the bonus.

If we're honest, the way it's set up, you have to wear more than 25 yocash in items to wear anything other than theme items, all for the possibility of winning only 25 yocash.

I understand both points of view here...but realistically you'd force people to keep things in their inventory (not be able to sell) until each challenge was completed, which takes almost 3 days if you required it to be in their inventory after it had been submitted. How exactly would that work?




ANYWAY, my point was that males only have to fulfill 4 item requirements while females have to fulfill 5, which seems sexist and unfair to me. Your discussion is a redherring from that point.

Confused as to why 3 hairs = 54 yc. When they were in the mystery box, they were 9 yc each. OH, you're buying them for 18 yc each? YIKES. Did you try buying them in AH?

I got almost to .8 with 3 hairs. Then I just added a yober and done. I knew they were gonna ask, so I saved 3 of the hairs from the crack boxes for this challenge. After were done, they're going to a good home...

No matter how much you justify it this still seems like a glitch exploit of the way the game event was set up.

It's too much for me. I was wearing a hat, free sunglasses and a porcupine. It wasn't enough to get my bonus bar even halfway.
Nope. Not gonna spend all my YC on these challenges for a chance to win a gem for a chance to win a prize I may or may not like.
