Hi guys. I thought I would maybe start a specific thread to discuss the Valentines event that is running concurrently with the Reality show event.
I think Glu nailed this one and I want to give kudos. Is the company still pretty greedy? Absolutely. 100%. But was this event fair and enjoyable?
$2.99 is not an outrageous price to pay (for some/most) to send gifts to friends. I really, really appreciated that when I purchased a box, I was guaranteed an item. I am much, much more likely to spend real money on the game when I'm guaranteed an item. I love that when I purchased an item for myself, I was able to subsequently gift one to a friend as well.
I don't have a lot of critique to offer for this event. I think it still has a few bugs. I gifted myself one box from my guy's game account to test the process and it never showed up in my girl's. But all the other boxes I've sent have shown up (to the best of my knowledge) to my friends.
I would love to see the price drop to perhaps $1.99 to make it more accessible to the community at large, but I won't split hairs over one dollar. It would also be great to send cross-platform gifts, but this is not Glu's fault and I'm not really complaining about this as it's out of their hands.
So anyway, the tl;dr version is: More events like this, please. Loved it!
