I think the best point Holly made is that the same prizes people are getting for free in their "lucky" groups, others of us have to pay varying amounts of real money to get. I am seeing final scores posted here and all over the Facebook groups and such that are lower than my final score, yet those people got #1 because they were in a lucky, "chill" group. It is crappy that this is what it depends on. I am all for Glu making money, I've even bought tickets before, and I pay for Gold VIP. But there has to be a way to make TS more fair. My main concern is not real ticket buyers btw, it's actual cheaters.
SYS can *be so much fun when the competition is fair. Players who score extremely high, average above 50, should guarantee for the #1 place prizes.
I got 1344 points from 26 free tickets, average 51.7 and was only 10 points less than the #1 who bought her way up the entire event, vote # jumped 170-200s points three times, scoring 30s-40s, yes, I was tracking her #. I hate to put $ in an event that is not fair but I also don’t want to lose by 10 points to someone who pays to win. So I dropped $0.99 for the trendsetters hair. As many members here have already pointed it out, the trendsetters system is so unfair and it could be avoided from the beginning.
Trendsetters ranking should be a tier system. For example, players who reach 1100 points get all prizes, reach 800-1099 points get the prizes #2-5 are getting, and so on. This way, players who score low can still buy tickets to get all prizes if they choose to but it doesn’t knock players who score high out. Also, this way, if players were grouped with male dolls, they won’t lose the chance of getting the hair and the dress if male dolls were in #1-5. Glu, please make this tier system happen. The unfairness of the current SYS trendsetters really takes the fun out of the game.
Edit to add some of my looks that scored well. 😊
I'm so unhappy with this event. I wish I got lucky like some of your but I would have had to purchase at least 29 additional tickets to catch up to the person in first place. I'm happy many of my friends won first without buying tickets but I am really upset that it's now confirmed that cheaters have figured out ways to hack unlimited tickets. My average was 48 points per look. Far, far, better than the person that bought (or cheated) their way to the top. This is the fourth event in a row that this has happened to me. It really sucks.
@eggsandbananas Y'know, I feel like telling Ali on the board instead of privately is a public relation serving way of making it look like we are paranoid and ticket hacking doesnt happen. You insinuated before on the board that I was lying about it happening, saying your team saw no proof of hacking in trendsetters. Now I know you have proof it is happening. I know you do. I'll save the particulars because I dont want more people finding it and cheating, but we both know it's happening. I wont expect an apology for making me look like a liar, or that a board member was allowed to call me a liar with no repercussions (gee I was sure there were rules against that ), or that I was locked out of the thread conveniently so I couldn't respond. The fact is that people are hacking tickets, and that fact and the disrespect makes me hate this game.
