WOW.. *Spending* Tons of our Own K Stars is the Big "VIP" Weekend Event?!

WishWish Advanced MemberRegistered Users 577 Posts
So happy that I was anxiously awaiting this :(
Horrid OVERALLS for 60 K Stars?!

What a huge disappointment... sorry, had to say something.

This really sucks for those of us who aren't made of money, or cannot watch videos for free K Stars... pretty much ever.

And even since the update, gigs are STILL 24 hours apart?!

Might be time to become unaddicted to this game.

Ok venting done :(

    Totally agree , God knows how many k stars we would have to spend to get the pinstripe trousers etc , totally not worth it

    I hear ya, I'm a bit annoyed myself. I play a lot and watch as many videos as I can, but I have to prioritize what I spend my K stars on. No ugly overalls for me!! And I totally agree about everything being 24 hours apart- that sucks! At least make it 12, even 15 hours! Not a FULL day. My guess is, they're s****ing hard to make us buy more K stars since there is sooooooo much gifting of wardrobes going on that they can't control, & making gigs 24 hours away is probably another way to spend their K stars to speed it up.

    I'm so glad with this update they added a ton of new clothes that cost money!!! I just can't buy any of them lol....I've been saving and saving & I need that Hamptons house first!! :P

    Glu has done it again. They paired an old outfit, the overalls, with a bracelet and ta-da. Jeez, they need to put different colored clothing items in gift boxes at least.

    wow. So I got up this morning, ready to stop everything else and work for clothes, and I have to spend for clothes? I don't mind that but the thing I liked so much was that Glu kept letting us work for great exclusive clothes. Last week I spent Stars for a great looking outfit, but now the outfit stinks. And, you can earn boxes by spending? Why not another black Friday type sale? If you want to encourage people to spend real cash to buy stars and therefore clothes.....give us an across the board (or sections) sale. Glu here is a big clue, and take it from a woman who likes to spend money. Make it worth our while, and women will spend. Why do you think there are so many jokes about women at sales? Grabbing things to buy.....because there is a sale. It is a real phenomena. If you want to increase revenue Glu, put the clothes, hair, and other accessories on sale. A good sale and we'll spend so much it will make your heads spin.

    But this weekends big event? Eh....I'll work for the dress in 24 hours (lol) but the rest of this weekend is mine.

    ICAM koko... on all counts!!!

    Working for exclusive clothes or K Stars, is the most fun & addictive part of playing the game! I also went nuts buying clothes, hair, shoes during the black friday sale. I doubt they're really listening tho... they want us to buy, buy, buy morrrrrrre stars! coz kimmy k doesn't have enuf money... ya know lol.... righhhhhht ;)

    Hopefully there'll be some good weekend specials that are fun & addicting coming up, if not... I'm done... this is just becoming a cash grab. I also have no problem spending real money.... when it's worth it! I was going to spend some major this weekend... I really wanted to finally buy the private jet & also the new Hamptons House & the dog... not anymore. if they're not going to balance ppl shelling out cash with fun/lucrative missions... screw it, not worth my time or money.

    I mean those ratchet overalls = the equivalent in stars, of half the private jet!?

    smh.... makes no sense.

    And... the "get free k stars" area has NEVER worked on my game... so at least some of you here can save up... some of us android users are sol & have to work for every darn star, or purchase them... so unfair.

    listen to koko, Glu... she knows what's up.

    I'm grateful that the final VIP Handbag prize doesn't contain a monkey, or a teacup horse (does that exist??), or something else funky and irresistible!

    I love this prize-earning format for the grinding events, but since we know from them that the cost per prize will accelerate quickly, it's hard to really get involved when Kstar purchases are required.

    The weekend event doesn't even show up for me anymore. That sometimes happened to me before, they took it back and made some changes to it before brining it back on the same day. I hope this will be the case here as well.
  • wensiewensie Junior Member Registered Users 62 Posts
    Anyone know what is the total stars to spend in order to earn the prizes in VIP event??

    Yeah, I love to see what triggers the bleeping! It reminds me of Jimmie Kimmel's bit "This Week in Unnecessary Censorship"-- he bleeps people like Obama, or the Pope, and it's much funnier than it should be.

    I agree with you about the Hamptons, too. I love the house, private beach, Corgi. I may inadvertently play the VIP event a little in buying them.

    This weekend event isn't totally my thing, but the update was pretty good!

    Ok, I've had caffeine, and want to amend what I said PARTIALLY - Yes, I see the fur trimmed gown we can all get by working. So, YAY GLU. THAT PART IS AWESOME.

    But everything I said about more sales like the Black Friday is a smart business move. Wish agrees, and I'm sure there are so many more who were poised and ready to shell out real American dollars, to get more stars for another major sale. Take a clue from the large department store chains, or any large store. They have big sales every couple of months at least. And for them......if they sell 1000 pair of shoes, they have to pay for goods to make those shoes. They have to pay to get the shoes shipped. But Glu, you are selling virtual clothes. Create one, create a billion. You've already spent payroll to have the shoes designed (programmed). There are no more material costs. Soooooooo, once the shoes are in the game....what's better 100 people buying them with 50 KStars or 1000 people buying them for 25K stars. hmmmmmmm, my son is the business major, but as a simple consumer even I know the answer to that. If you are looking to make money, because the original estimates of the game netting 200 million $ are falling short......have a big sale and watch us open up our wallets. On sale, I might buy 3 hairstyles at 15, or 50 stars eacj, rather than buy one for 30. And 100 is this a real haircut or one for my game? What are you crazy? I'll take a picture to LemonTree and they'll do it and I'll still have money for lunch.

    So, thanks for the working dress reward. 5Star rating on that. But if you want us to open our wallets, put it all on sale and watch us spend. Then, with the influx of our money, take a little and pay someone to make more clothes. A few months down the line throw those on sale and again......watch us spend.

    Seriously, yesterday I went out for gift cards, just so I can load up and buy. Now, they'll sit in my purse and wait for a sale. So, either put the clothes on a good sale, or put the Stars on a good sale. Bottom line, if you want us to spend, women wait for sales. We don't want everything for nothing, We want virtual value for our real dollars. If you want us to buy virtual things, for real cash, give us a better deal. Otherwise, we wait. And if we get bored, we leave. ok rambling now, but I don't know why Glu isn't getting this. Real stores get it, and give us sales, discounts, reward points - and it's for real stuff.

    Are we awarded points toward the gift box, the pants, the top and the dog if we buy things other than clothes?

    Presumably, buying the jet, cars, furniture, would do it! I don't have that stuff at all. I've really just obsessed with making my avatars look awesome, buying the biggest party house, the occasional dog...

    I love when they have special edition hair to pursue! That, or a monkey in that handbag, would have had me in a swoon! :P

    You are one smart cookie... koko :)

    I too, bought gift cards yesterday in anticipation of the weekend, that will also now sit in my purse until something here... or elsewhere comes along... way to crunch those numbers... & make it so easy to understand... *** hopefully *** someone is listening.

    I like the dress for Misty's secret fashion show... but the realish looking fur trim grosses me out a bit, why not black faux looking fur? some of us have no interest in wearing little animals... virtual or not! :/

    sorry about all my whining y'all... just disappointed.
    have a great weekend all :)

    Well I know the top is 250 K-Stars!! And I don't plan on finding out what the purse with the kitty is LOL. It's SO ridiculous. I feel like it's even more than the last one we had for the BF Event. I did purchase K-Stars, never ever did I hack or cheat. I'm about done now after this really lol. Just not going to buy anymore.

    There is that one dress we can earn with just playing the game and doing well. I guess we have to look at it as, 'maybe next week'. I remember seeing a sale on Stars once, but I was brand new and didn't think I should spend money for a game that was free. Now I'm older and wiser. lol. I have the funds in place now, just waiting for a bonafide S.A.L.E. or is that a bad word too? Anyway Clar0u, are you android or ios?

    The shirt is 250 Kstars!? Yikes. I know you'd be getting it in addition to 250 kstars' worth of purchases, but yikes. Maybe someone will see the price on the kitten bag-- I'm morbidly curious...

    I inadvertently participated in the last event where you had to buy things with K-stars...never would do it on purpose! K-stars are sacred, precious things. :P

    I feel like this event is a rip. The new clothes + the Hamptons is a good addition though. I ain't mad about it.

    I am so bummed! I only use my K stars on important stuff, I don't throw them around. I hated my name , so last night just 4 hours before this "use your Kstars and earn great stuff" thing started, I spent 50 Kstars to change my name and not lose 30% of my followers. I am so bummed. 50!!! I could have changed my name anytime but no, I had to use my stars so now I really won't earn all of the gifts. I won't spend cash for these things. Grrrrrrrrrr

    So, incidentally *if* you spend stars for energy or to speed up the secret Misty gigs, those do count toward the VIP outfit. So for those who roll that way, it's a way to get a double benefit from the spending.
