Very disappointed in Bumper Cars building
The Bumper Cars building that VIP's received as our big "end of the challenge road" reward this month is a huge disappointment. I was very excited while waiting to get enough points to redeem it, "assuming" it would be the size perhaps of the Jumbo Stadium or maybe one size smaller, and planning where I was going to put a really neat, cool building that size.
Instead I was able to slide it in a space formerly occupied by a Video Poker Pad; a Tier 4/small building. I was crushed that the interior is hardly fleshed out and what's there is barely visible given the small size, even at the greatest magnification. The only way it's even recognizable as a Bumper Cars building is because it says so in big letters and there's a bumper car (again hard to tell that's what it is because it's so tiny) on the roof. Even sadder is the fact that the Video Poker Pad building that I replaced with it,although the same size, has infinitely more design detail than the Bumper Cars building, when seen under the highest magnification.
So what's the deal, Flowplay, with the chintzy Bumper Cars building? Not exactly on a par with the Jumbo Stadium building or the Modern Painting charm, which were two of our previous "end of the road" rewards. Yes, you did an excellent job on the baby panda bear, and we did get two five clover charms, but I'd just as soon you'd replace that ugly five clover Dino Egg,with something lesser, which hopefully would be enough of a trade-off to give us a really neat, cool, big enough to see, Bumper Cars building. Maybe the designers just spent so much time making the panda bear great, that there wasn't time left to do much more than simplify the design of the Bumper Cars building, which then necessitated shrinking it to hide its lack of detail.
I agree Luckls but just fyi....this wasn't a new building so they don't have the Panda excuse....lol. We've gotten this same building in the past. Good luck to you.1
Well I certainly agree with the "sad trombone" meme b/c winning a lame prize is sad. But I can't help remembering that a gambling site (mock gambling site?) is going to throw clunkers at the players at times.
A wheel of fortune has several such clunkers waiting for the unlucky player. What if the challenge line is one such wheel with a list of prizes, including clunkers, which show up each in their own turn? If so, then I'm not disappointed, I'm just gambling.
Fortunately, all-in-all, this site is so much more favorable to the player than any casino.1
TY, Ellie, for letting me know this isn't a new building. I've only been here 256 days, so wasn't aware of it.
To k9: Yes, it's a gambling site, but the VIP rewards have nothing to do with gambling. Everything is totally fixed and WYSIWYG. Flowplay has a formula that they normally follow as to how the VIP rewards are structured, typically ending each month with a "big" prize. So even though we got a great pet and two five clover charms as rewards, they deviated from the expectation, which was set by them, that the final prize is always "big". This month it not only wasn't big, it was small in every sense of the word. That's just WRONG!0
We also picked up an Eternal Rest Building (normally MS 68), and I think also the Horserace Championship Building (MS 62) along the way -- which I was excited for since I started the month at MS 57. Overall I think it was a decent month, except I never like waiting so long (9 days) for the 200% faster box opening. I wish that could be earned sooner.0
