MCL Valentines 2017

Yes, I realize there are only two days left of the event at the time of this post. No, it isn’t going to stop me from ranting about it! I have some very important questions, and maybe one of you has the answer. We’ll see.

Why do they try the same tactics every event even though they always break?

I don’t get it. There is always a mass of bugs and glitches and errors that make the achievements unplayable. Miraculously, I was able to play the Valentine’s mini game this year, but last year’s “shoot the mini people with love darts,” the glitchy Halloween 2016 mess, whatever the mini game for the Holiday 2016 was (it never once loaded for me), “find the thing on the page somewhere around the site” except that pages never load and/or take 30 minutes to pull up, credits disappearing after an error, I mean…2-22z1

Come on. I don’t understand why they do this to players. I am able to purchase AP and $ from the bank, but other players can’t. At least make the events fair.

Adding tons of outfits doesn’t balance out the fact that a majority of players can’t obtain them. 

With all of the glitches and bugs flying around, many players end up disappointed with only a few items after having their credits disappear (or never appear after completing an objective, in some cases).

Why can’t we just have a “Valentine’s 2017” shop for a week after the event for others to catch up? If the credits glitch out half the time, at least let us use our AP and $.

We never know when an event will end.

There needs to be an “Event Countdown Timer” because players end up missing out on items thinking that there is another day. “Midnight” isn’t the same time for everyone.

I really want to love MCL…

But as many of you have noticed, I’ve nearly stopped caring. I now only play for the events and clothing items, and then get upset when they don’t work correctly. I get burnt out and just kind of…well, obviously I stop playing for months at a time.

I guess my point is: 

It’s a cute game with a unique story line that has really grown into something incredible. Millions of people log in everyday, thousands are active on the forum, and hundreds log in just to nab the holiday clothing items a few times a year. It’s a huge audience that is being held back by things like this type of event. (Is that too dramatic?)

Players are dedicated and keep coming back, even when event disasters  happen every single time.

What can we, as players, do to help out the Beemoov team?

My Candy Love: Episode 1 STREAM

Remember this post from thousands of years ago? I was going to link to the post but never mind I’m too lazy. Basically, you all voted for a recorded play-through of the episodes in My Candy Love. You thought that I had forgotten. I totally didn’t, and it has resulted in this disastrous attempt to…well, to be honest, I’m actually not too sure what the heck this is. A guide? Worst guide ever. An adventure? Not the best. A review? Sure, let’s go with that… Continue reading

Eldarya Is Being Released In ENGLISH!

Mark your calendars for September 12, 2016! Eldarya will be available in English, and you can reserve your username NOW!

“Why is this important? I don’t care.” – a lot of people, probably.

It’s important because your sprite will need a good name during the dialogues. Unless you want the objects of your affection leaning in and whispering, “I’ve always loved you, XxStarrxChildxX9…” You should take this time to reserve your current username, or come up with something a little less…jumbly.

You all know my prejudice against names with numbers and x’s in them. Can’t stand it. (Personally.) So, if you feel the same, now is the time to pre-register and get the username of your dreams!

If, however, you don’t give a shiznit about what your sprite is called, by all means, disregard this blog post and enjoy the rest of your day!

Summer Boutique 2016 Haul

So, it’s been a wild year, and there is literally zero excuse for my behavior except that I had a baby! Woop! While that was a bit deal, I won’t bore you with crazy details except to say that he is incredibly adorable and I can’t believe that I made a real, live person with my body. Wat.

On to the haul! I just posted this on my Tumblr and thought…what the hell! Let’s put it up on the blog and see what happens. There can’t be /that/ many angry pitchfork-wielders, right? Continue reading

The Candy Weekly is Searching for New Members!

Tags

Maybe you sit at home all day (impatiently) waiting for episode 25 to be created. Maybe you sit at home and eat an entire bag of doritos. I don’t know, I don’t really judge.

Well, in the forums, there is a magazine called The Candy Weekly. Only recently, it hasn’t been so “weekly” as much as “holiday.” Which is fine in my book because they put a TON of creativity and effort into each issue, and they are really fun to read.

But it’s clear that they need more girl-power! A few members have become unresponsive, and one deleted her account. Sad.

Check out this thread for the positions available. It went up last week, but only two Candies have applied. Who knows, maybe you have a hidden talent?

The Candy Weekly: http://www.mycandylove.com/forum/t54286,1-the-candy-weekly.htm

The Application Thread: http://www.mycandylove.com/forum/t64364,1-candy-weekly-in-search-of-new-members.htm

Even if you don’t think this kind of project is up your alley, at least check out the current issues of this super cute user-run newspaper? magazine? …flyer?

I’m not sure how to categorize it…BUT CHECK IT OUT! What do ya’ll think of it?

3 Million Candies!

cupcake

So what we have here is a PERMANENT feature to the site since reaching 3 million players. Sweet.

If you follow the link after clicking the magical cupcake prisoner, you will see 631 recolored items.

That’s a lot of useless items *cough*easterbunnyhats*cough* but ALSO THERE ARE SOME PRETTY GREAT ONES!!

😀 What did you get?! I got some mismatched stockings to add to my other 3 that I got from Christmas…yaaay…

ALRIGHT, BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

This means that at any moment, you have the chance of a flying cupcake loading. Forever. For the rest of MCL. Forever.

They can appear randomly on any page of the site.
Refreshing the page will not make the cupcakes appear more often.

Has anyone gotten one besides the initial gift cupcake? Do I need to scroll up and down EVERY page when I refresh? Does it fly in a certain pattern? These are the important questions.
