So of you haven’t followed the drama of this disaster event, here is the cliff notes version. (If you don’t know what cliff notes are, Google that real fast. It will save you from committing a murderous rampage when you end up studying Shakespeare or reading Beowulf, Pygmalion, etc.)
So beemoov released this event on Amour Sucre first. After the majority of the players complained about being “the bank of beemoov,” Chino replied saying that it would be unfair to the Candies who paid these prices during the original events. Candies stated that it was an event, it didn’t matter if the prices were different.
This is where beemoov royally frakked up.
The staff released a 40% discount.
At the end of the event.
After one Candy paid €30 (roughly $40) for the event, she stated that she felt betrayed. There is a trust between a merchant and a vendor, and by taking advantage of its most loyal players, she felt the need to take a break from the site for a while. (Rough translation. I’m paraphrasing.)
Then there was the question of which sites would get the discount, since the sites were timed differently. Beemoov answered this question by releasing the discount to MCL, but not a single mod would answer the questions we were asking since the beginning. (I myself was getting my pretty hair all twisted when I thought we wouldn’t get it – just like we don’t get to give input about new characters or clothing or get the comic translated to English, etc. But they did apply the discount to us, so that is over. Kind of.)
So there you have it! Your own personal slap in the face from beemoov! It wouldn’t be such a giant issue of it was, say, a 15% discount. But 40%?
That’s like me waking into your village and being like hey, I’ll take 10 of your best goats in return for this super rare vaccine for I Got No Strings Disease.
And you’d be all like thanks for offering to cure us of this obscure Disney sounding disease, but those are literally all of our goats. We will starve probably. That’s too many goats.
And I’d be like well do you want die for sure from I Got No Strings Disease and maybe another person will come with a cheaper cure but you’re not sure, or possibly die of hunger for sure because I’m taking all of your 10 goats?
And you’d be like fine, take all of my goats.
And as I was leaving be like, hey where’s the next village? I have a sale on vaccines. The exact same vaccines I just gave you but for only 6 goats, so they will be able to eat and also not die.
It’s late. That was not was
What I was going for. Comments below are appreciated if I didn’t understand the timeline exactly. I was surfing the French forum through Google Translate.
Correct my mistakes please :)
Right now, there is an awesome boutique open on MCL.
Remember all of those times you thought to yourself, “man, I like this Hallween 2013 outfit, but I wish it was yellow!” And that time you thought, “man, I like this Easter Goddess outfit, but I wish it was mauve!”
Well, grab your ponytails, because your wishes have come true!!!
And luckily, they do not require AP! THEY REQUIRE $MONEY$! That’s great! Unless you’ve just replayed episode 21 twice and bought two outfits. So for me this is not the best event ever and I’m pretty bummed.
So to live vicariously, here is my wishlist:
Costing a grand total of $2,090.00, my dreams. (I’m currently stalking my candy friends to see who has which items because I want to photoshop a masterpiece of what these would look like together. I wish you could write on Candy’s walls because that would be the best.)
Do they look good together? Not really. But they are my dreams. *sigh*
Right now I have $366, so by the power of math, I will have $456 on the LAST DAY of the boutique.
Ladies, I need your help! Which things do I buy?! Do you need help deciding, too?! AUGH THE HUMANITY!!! Post in the comments. I’m here all day because there are short Mexicans fixing my wobbly floorboards. I’m such a beast. I stood next to the main guy who is ordering his buddies around, and he literally came up to my shoulder.
I think they keep calling me The White Lady but I can’t be sure. At least they aren’t using AP for these events anymore. I bake so much now.
