I bought the sunglasses in order to participate.
I'm usually one of the first to complain about Glu's moves when they seem unfair to me, but I honestly don't think this is bad.
I like the idea of everyone having to centre their outfits around a mutual item in the closets; it adds more competition and encourages people to be more creative.
I think saying "pay to play" removes a lot of what is actually going on here. If they were to say "pay 30 k-stars to start this event," then okay, I see how that is "pay to play" (because it is). But in this case, you are getting something for those 30 k-stars. Yes I get that you are paying, but it isn't just for starting an event. There is a reason to owning the sunglasses. If you don't want to acquire the item that the styling is centred around, then how else would you expect to compete in the styling?
Glu was way more generous with this event than they have been lately, and I think it's because you have to buy the sunglasses. Not only do we get TWO throwback boxes (as compared to ONE in the actual throwback event), but also two new wardrobe pieces, which I don't think has ever happened in a midweek event.
If Show Your Style events look this way in the future, where we have to buy a mutual accessory and style outfits around it, I wouldn't be upset. I honestly think competing by styling outfits around the same piece is fun, and if you don't, then you don't have to participate?
I am sorry that so many are disappointed by this, and I know I won't make you change your minds. But, I really don't see this as a bad thing.

it sucks that a normally free event now requires people to pay 30kstars to participate, but I can understand why glu did it. before in these voting events, you basically pitted one player's look against another with no basis of judgement (i.e. a fab evening gown look vs an awesome casual look). having a single item to have a unifying theme and standard I think makes it fair in judgement. and I do have the say, the looks I'm seeing are actually better for it. previously it looked liked every other one could be an NPC, trust me, there are bad dressers out there.

I've said that I'm sorry if I did made a wrong presumption, but this just isn't ok.. I'm not saying it's your fault...... I'm just mad at Glu.
Their game story line went so bad, nothing to be happy about any more.. Constant glitches, bugs, crashes etc. Paying to get in the event is not fair to their players. And it's like they can't hide any more what this game is really about-only only only the money and their profit. And all of that money wouldn't exist with out the players! But there will always be the ones who will pay no matter what. I'd rather buy myself something today then buy those stars or sunglasses.
And yes, that was my first post, not proud about it, but I've just had enough...

Hey Glu: Where DID you get such a BIG BOTTLE OF ****?!
I can't believe there's a few people here who are either such poor, huge $uckers that you managed to stick it to them, or those who are too good and nice and sweet that they're this close to too innocent and are pondering what to do. You are ****PREY, "dolls." You are an UNWILLING EXPERIMENT. YOU DID NOT AGREE TO, NOR SIGN ANY PAPERS, PERMITTING ANY ENTITY TO TO TREAT YOU LIKE LAB RATS. KNOW IT. And these poor girls/women/whoever are your freaking deer caught in the headlights. You vulture pieces of sh*t.
Last week you said to me, "**** ***, isabeau." So you know what I did? I had another game I'd been playing here and there. But KKH was my game, and the other was just a random thing. Like WolfandButler--btw, you made her fn cry you two-bit half-grown poor excuses for human life. Yeah, see above: ****. Where'd you get that bad ****, the deep web?
So like WolfandButler, I had NEVER spent ANY money on a game. Until I played KKH. Then I poured a **** ton into it. But then...you know what I did last week? WHEN YOU WOULD'NT LET ME PLAY? I shifted gears, AND SPENT MY MONEY IN A NEW GAME. And with your THIRD VIP much too, MUCH TOO CLOSE TOGETHER, you know what I did-did? I said, "**** it, 'beau. **** them and the K-star bones they're throwing out to everyone like Santa Claus on all that SoCal ice." And I went BACK TO THIS OTHER GAME. AND I SPENT SOME MORE MONEY THERE. NOT HERE. And I quite happily did the same last night. I knew the b.s. was to come again today.
You think I'm going to buy some ugly **** shades I don't want, in order to participate in an event? YOU THINK I'M GOING TO PAY YOU, TO PLAY YOUR**** GAME?! I have enough sunglasses; in fact, I bought another pair I like just last week, that were new in the wardrobe. And still this week, I have plenty enough stars to buy these, in your pathetic attempt to LULL ME and BULLY ME into stupidity, FORTY TIMES OVER. I can buy MORE THAN FORTY PAIRS OF THESE SUNNIES RIGHT NOW. **** YOU. TF is WRONG with you? Seriously, grow the **** up! If you are too self-inclined to run your game into the ground, do try selling the whole sack of **** to ADULTS. WHO *KNOW* HOW TO RUN A BUSINESS.
You think this is FUN? You think you're going to take advantage of those who apparently don't know any better than to succumb instead of walk away? YOU THINK PLAYERS HERE ARE YOUR GUINEA PIGS?!
YOU. Will attempt to **** WITH MY HEAD. NEVER. AGAIN.
I have an event waiting for me in another game. See ya, ****.
P.S. Fix this or I will consider FRYING YOU. My first job out of college was the editorial end of--including the gaming industry--17 audio, video, computer, and gaming trade and consumer magazines. (God, CES is so much fun!) Fix this. And refund the money to those who didn't/don't know any better. Make this right or I can make you toast. Think about it. Think about damage control NOW.

Aah, yeah, i figured, that's why I said it's probably the anger. Everything you all say about not paying is right. But, I know that there are going to be a lot of honest players who buy, and I remember all too well what it felt like when the non updaters got the event. I would have gladly paid whatever....no I would have Angrily paid whatever it cost to get into that deal, so it's a personal defect. If I can afford to pay an unfair price....I ask myself if I want it more than the unfair price.
Take a look, I have not encouraged one single player to buy the sunglasses to get in. I think that behavior would be necessary for anyone to say I sounded like I was a seller for the game.
I don't know if you were lurking in 2015 when I was selected by members to be the new mod. No one accused me of being a sellout then, and I don't think I'm a sellout now. I just know me, And if I will spend 40Stars on a Giftbox that might contain cash during the weekend events, why wouldn't I spend 30 on Sunglasses to get into an event that will probably earn me 2 Throwback items? That's my way of determining whether I'd pay or not. But I always tell people to do what is good for them. Make their own choices......unless it's something that will hurt them and then I go out on the limb and say "NO. Bad idea. Don't do it." I urge people to take comebacks. I urge people to date at Oak if they like energy for than cash. I urge a lot of things, but I don't think I urged anyone to swallow their true feelings and get the blasted sunnies. I only reported that I personally made that choice.
I do try and stop people from knocking their heads against walls. Oh, and I urge people to buy the jet. But that's not for Glu, that for people who want to start having some cash in the game. I need a sign "I shill for Unlimited Travel"
No harm Anaa0. I'm sorry you're hurting. It would have felt better if you said "You're acting in a foolish manner" than saying I was encouraging people to spend. As far as buying in so quickly.... just can't say no

no, it's ok. These events make us kray kray sometimes. We're good, and I shouldn't have gotten so defensive. Let me explain, I'm a Gemini+ and any decisions whatsoever are by committee, or whichever voice gets to the game first. lol.
And believe me, no need to apologize. I think that I bought in without hesitation, because nothing surprises me. Do I like the sunglasses? They hide my same color eyebrows a little bit, so sure. I like them.
Now, with all that unpleasantness behind us,
to the forum. We've had our mandatory argument.....you're part of the family now.

Or maybe even items you can buy using kash...although that's probably way too much to hope for! Perhaps items discounted for the weekend...
Buttiel wrote: »
Both of these. Kash items would be way more reasonable I think... or a discount on the necessary items. We get discounts from time to time as well as luxe goals, so I don't think that one's too much to ask for!

now, I hate complaints for the sake of complaining, try offering a solution. obviously glu wants to do something different, so going back to how it was, while a good solution in itself, doesn't go for the something different that they are going for. my suggestion is maybe offer up the closet item for free for the duration of the event so everyone can participate. and if at the end they end up wanting to buy it, they will. glu are you listening?

Ok since I'm in I have to know... Does we need 50 checkmarks to get each item?
If so at least they had good sense to decrease the needed amount.:)

I just got my results for the first round. Luckily I won in each game, so 5 points when you submit a look, 20 coz I won, and another 5 to submit....I'll be seeing a Throwback prize in either 4 hours....or 8 if I lose. Then I'll start to work on the next boxes. But, am I missing something about the dress? The guys jackets look great....but the woman's dress? Are you guys loving it? Hating it? will it look better with different accessories? Maybe i need another look. lol.
