So, since I love hats and wearing them and designing clothing, I was really excited about the upcoming Cross Stitch design contest. I even bought the one cool thing super cool vest from the last round and thought "Heh! I could Totally do that!"
But then I get the message that the new contest is up and there's an Entry Fee?! of 10,000 Gold?!!! GeeZus!
What is it with Entry Fees around here?! How stupid is it to charge us fake money for things that don't really exist on a game that we play for Fun?
And what do they do with all that accumulated gold? Does Gaia actually have an economy? Can they not just pop out more little digital yellow disks? Cause if you've ever played zOMG, or gotten freebees, or played the daily chance cart, it sure seems like that's how gold is made confused
I dunno...I thought I was getting worked up for no reason until I saw what the prizes were; 20,000 gold (Double your entry fee it said. Notice, just the 1 entry fee...and only if you win.) and every variation of your design for free.
Alright! This is Definitely a crap shoot!!
I have at least 15 good hat ideas in my head right now, might want to submit 5 of them when they're drawn out and will probably only be able to raise enough gold for 1...maybe, if I spend all my time killing animated and pin balls nonstop. neutral
Secondly, what about the other designs? Why don't I get them free too? Or at least get a discount or something?! Nope...just the one's designed by me...
Whatever Gaia, continue racketeering your "citizens" all you like. Who am I to do anything about it? I can't even afford to enter your stupid design contest burning_eyes
