    To those saying that the game would survive without ticket buyers - yeah, it would survive, but would it thrive? Tickets are a major source of $$$ for this game. Watch them getting rid of the Triple Threat and watch the revenue drop. I get that the SYS system is flawed, but when people act like the game will be just fine without a huge chunk of an income is naive. No game is a charity (especially when they have a contract they need to renew).

    I like the option to buy tickets and I will not stop buying it. Sorry. Like some people said, the game isn't charity and almost all the games (mobile or not) has some purchases going on. It's how life works. People need money. If you work in this industry, you will understand.

    @LaraDeen my story is similar to yours 💗 I buy tickets. I can’t be ashamed of it because I still play fairly. I first downloaded the game in 2014 and played in super infrequent stints on and off months at a time lol. Because of this pandemic and being forced to WFH I have way more time lmao so I started playing again and I had the same feeling too of needing to “catch up”. I realized how much I missed out on the game from clothing/handhelds/makeup even understanding what SYS Events even were. If I like the prizes I’ve already made up my mind if I’m using tickets or not.. plus purchased tickets roll over to the next SYS, so it’s not like every week you have  to spend money if you’re putting out good looks. And I stay on theme lol. The biggest thing with this game is being fair and considerate of everyone playing because there are millions of people that play this game all over this world. And there would be no game if no one spent money that’s a fact. I’ll submit a couple extras if I really want the prizes but I’m not going on a 2000+ point run or almost to the 2nd earnable within the first 12 hours. I also believe in keeping ties. If me and another doll are tied I won’t submit a ticket because both of us winning a prize is better than just one? There are definitely some rude TB’s but it shouldn’t ruin the act of buying tickets regardless. I think it’s time Glu extends the “winner window” if they keep up SYS. Its not fair out of 30 dolls only 5 win actual items anyway. At least the top ten should get one item, stars, dye and cash.

    Hi and Welcome @kikikhadds
     
    I really think the success of the triple threat, and more people at home helped seal the deal for another 3 1/2 years.  Kim is going in another direction with prison reform, and law school.   It could have been a very different story If players weren’t buying tickets.  No one should ever be made to feel badly about supporting the game.  
    No one should be made to feel badly here at all.  <3

    what i think the biggest problem with ticket buyers on the forum is the fact that they always seem to lie about it and pretend they aren’t submitting 12 extra looks. the forum does come off as ticket buyer haters, so i see the reason why some would hide it, but i think that just makes us hate ticket buyers even more. i have definitely been a ticket buyer myself, but ive also been vocal about it. and while i definitely think taking a spot from a deserving doll is rude/mean etc. the fact that we have the option to submit extra looks makes it fair. if i am in love with the prizes and i have the money or the extra tickets to beat a free player in first place im gonna do it. now, i never have a free player in first place and ive only fought for first like twice so ive never done this, but at the end of the day we don’t owe each other anything.

    Thanks @kokokokonut 💗 
    The forum is what really taught me about SYS and prepared me for the last Kimversary, the first one I actually participated in because I knew what was going on lol. No one should be shamed period for spending their own money on anything that they enjoy.
    @samanthakkh When speaking in terms of fairness I think it’s just more specific to every situation. Maybe integrity is the better word? If someone wants to submit 12 tickets they can, why I emphasized being on theme. It’s not right for someone to submit 12 looks in the cheap Kloset jeans and Tshirt that’s supposed to be beach themed and beat dolls who are actually on theme. Even if you have a basic closet, submit a swimsuit or crop top.... but be on theme lol. But a doll who can jump the board and all her looks are gorgeous? She can have it all because that’s a girl who clearly knows what she wants. 🤷🏾‍♀️

    First of all thank you guys for replying me and voicing out your opinion or concern about TS system and buying tickets. I really appreciate it. 
    I talked about this not because I want more drama I just want to know what it feels like to be in your position as a free player and long time player (something that I couldn’t get the gist of it before)
    I summarized: 
    1. Some of you guys have no problem with ticket buyers but it’s just very annoying when they steal the the rank at the last minute.
    2. The other group completely against it because you should win based on your looks not because you can afford to buy tickets.
    I will try to play it fair next time even tho I guess I never in the same group with you guys, but if I do let me know then I will tone down my ticket purchases, my name on the game is the same as my forum id.
    As for me I’ll be honest with you, I’ll probably still buying tickets in the future. Because I know (this is the hard truth for me too lol) I couldn’t win if I’m not submitting extra tickets and probably never will. Like I said before I don’t have many beautiful dresses like you guys have from the past events, my dress just basic from the closet and some from Kollection. I want to win all the dresses so I have beautiful dresses in my closet (in order to win the SYS)
    I know I should be more patient and just playing from time to time to get into your level eventually but I guess I’m a person who wants to just get done with it quickly. I’m still in the phase of overly excited about anything this game has to offered. If they offer me something new I immediately buy lol, like you know the first few months you date someone new. I will get over that phase soon I hope, and after that I will get to feel like you as a long time player and maybe start complaining about ticket buyers too lol. So overall for now, please welcome me as a new member, I will always being honest to you as a ticket buyer and if you happen to be in my group please notify me so I won’t buy extra tickets and we can play fairly and enjoy the contest.
    This is so nice @laradeen 😊 I like your vibe. Wishing you the best of luck in the next SYS!

    No one is being naive! This game was incredibly successful and lucrative for Mrs. Kardashian West and GLU well before this system was put into place! I’m not buying it (literally)!  Give me a break. No one is making anyone feel bad for buying tickets. And no one is “bitter” about ticket buyers. I feel as if I’m being “subtweeted” for my voicing my opinion as a long term player. Oh and charity? Who said that this game was charity? People need to stop reaching. This game is allowed to make money but not at the expense of exploiting its players. If anything, it’s the long term players who are keeping this game alive and relevant. Btw, I’m not “naive” nor am I looking for “charity!” 🙄🙄🙄

    My sys looks. All of these colors though it's like it was rainbow sys event all over again 😍❤🧡💛💚💙💜 #thisbish #shecouldnever #slaylikeme #PeriodtPooh







    Won 2nd place. Well again it's the same frickin thing of an Becky/Karen tb who's envious of my doll's beauty and style which leads me to believe of that's what happened of an outbeated/outscored score. Such an outrage within the last second of the event I lost my 1st place position and dropped down to 2nd place 🙄 so petty *tsk tsk* I'm actually not sad but more of like annoyed. Ik that I could possibly win the dress at a future sys tb event but this is getting absolutely ridiculous.

    I had a super easy TS group with 2 or 3 TBs and myself being the only ones to get the last earnable, and I lost a ticket so only had 13. To me this feels like the biggest flaw with TS. I'm sure there were many people with higher scores than me but due to random luck I was put in an easy group and got top 5. I really wish it would just be a global leaderboard where everyone who gets X votes is a TrendSetter. I know it would make me use more tickets if I was guaranteed to actually get the items, in its current form it feels like gambling.

    OMG, I agree on that soooo much. I am now putting it in the suggestions thread. Sys trendsetters should be global and first 1/30 tier should get the current 1st place prizes and first 5/30 should get the 5th place prizes and so on. It should also show us how many scores we will need to reach the next tier. Like if the last member of 1/30 tier has 650 votes I need to pass her to get the 1st place prize.

    I would highly recommend people googling the term “whales in gaming”. People seem to buy triple threat not only for the tickets, but for the stars and diamonds. As long as people are buying, then it will stay. Glu (unfortunately) will only ever change the game around the actions of “in app purchaser” and never “free players”. In order to change it, we need to change our purchasing habits (if any of this makes any sense!) Quite an interesting topic throughout the gaming world and not just with KKH!
  • megandppmegandpp Registered Users, Member 76 Posts
    @Rikk wow I’m so impressed they were successful!! I feel like we could never 😂
  • milristmilrist Registered Users, Member 214 Posts
    Maybe the tickets shouldn't be so cheap... I guess Glu's thinking is that they'll get more money that way. But it's so illogical that winning a competition is cheaper than buying a bunch of k stars??
    I'm not sure what are the prices cause they don't show up for me, I'm just quoting Lara..
    Also I didn't know tickets were cheap?? Why?🤦

    @milrist consumers tend to be attracted to "cheap prices", but in the long run, buying tickets is making you spend more than you would for a star pack. Besides, the lower prices make almost sure that you would buy again and again. You don't buy the $100 star pack daily or monthly, do you? But you definitely could buy $3 dollar Triple Threat twice weekly, which is a steady $24 monthly income, and that's only in the TT; because we aren't counting the other ticket packs like the $9 of 12 tickets, nor are we counting Diamond purchases.

    Adding to what I said above, why are tickets so cheap then? Well, as it is clearly stated, SYS is practically a gamble. Even if you spend $100 dollars on tickets you aren't secured 1st place. But would you rather spend $100 in one run, or in baby steps? That's what GIu is doing with their consumers. Selling a "secure chance" that's "affordable" because the "prices are cheap" though in the long run you'll end broke nonetheless sooner or later 💀
  • milristmilrist Registered Users, Member 214 Posts
    @rebecca0105 thank you for telling me the prices. I do understand the psychology of the average seller and of the average buyer, as I said Glu probably thinks they'll earn more this way. But it boggles me that I never saw anyone mentioning how ridiculously cheap buying your victory is. I guess 3$ for triple threat is a great deal for everyone. 
    Also if you don't have another excessive tb in your ts group, you will definitely win if you have over 1000 votes.

    @milrist sorry for intervening but i just wanted to add that the way the triple threat offer is set up with the 5 diamonds and 10 kstars, the 3 tickets that are also included actually end up being free! so for me, i will happily spend $2.99 each week, maybe twice a week if i feel like it, for 5 diamonds and 10 kstars with a bonus of 3 tickets. and those “free” tickets rollover to eventually help you win actual clothing items, so its a win-win imo... buuut i do wish there was a cap on points or a limit on looks lol 🤷🏽‍♀️ 
  • mandamay76mandamay76 Registered Users, Member 1,646 Posts
    @samanthakkh totally agree with all of what you just said!  Why can't they cap the looks at 17 - thats the 14 freebies and a triple threat!  If you can not win with 3 extra looks then that's that. Better luck next week! 
  • samanthakkhsamanthakkh Registered Users, Member 853 Posts
    @mandamay76 that would literally weed out any competition against alllllll of those ticket buyers who are never on theme and score 20pts per look. sounds perfect! 🤣

    nvm wrong thread!
  • milristmilrist Registered Users, Member 214 Posts
    @mandamay76 yeah, I like that idea. Or at least 20 so people buy at least extra 3 tickets, to fill up the bank.
    I get where you stand and I'm not attacking paying players. Triple threat is such a bargain, I'm sure I would start buying it every week if I ever stop being a free player.
    It just looks like Glu is making us look like fools with the whole current show your wallets narrative.🤡
    Maybe they should make in game currencies cheaper so people would buy them like tickets *wink* *wink*

     the fact that you can’t even buy a weekday throwback box with the $5 star pack is literally insane to me 🥴
