Default Communal contest a rip off?

To me, the communal contest is a rip off. You work really hard to reach goals on games and what's you prize? Free 99% of the time icky wshop items or sometimes kinzcash. No awesome exclusives, no kinzstyle , or rare items. Just plain wshop items and rarely kinzcash. I thought at first the contest would be cool ad there be awesome prizes, but then I realized, it wasn't cool and there wasn't anything worth having. I mean you can easily go to the wshop and buy the items. Yah some like free items but, free wshop isn't a cool prize to me. Only time I enter one of these contest if there is a kinzcash prize....

The point of the communal contest is to get everyone to work together
And besides, even if it is W-shop items
Its still something

I agree that the point is to work together to achieve a goal.
It's fairly easy to achieve the goal and win the prize. The rare and valuable prizes you mentioned are suppose to be harder to get.
The W-shop items aren't too valuable, but that are still something. If you don't like them, you can always sell them.
All you have to do is play a game a few times, and you will most likely get a free item.
If you ask me, it seems like an excellent deal. It depends on how you look at it, and what you're used to having. I like looking on the bright side.

You can always just sell em'
I usually sell the items, but sometimes i'll save them and put them in my house
(Depending on the item)

Default Re: Communal contest a rip off?

i just play like two milliseconds in the game so i score 3 points and then close out of the game. that way, i am entered in the contest and will get the prize if it actually comes through. i never really play the game unless its gogo googles. ( the only game i like) yah, i know, that's kinda lazy of me...

Default Re: Communal contest a rip off?

For these contests to have any meaning at all, the top earner (or maybe top ten) should be granted a special recognition. A non-tradeable (to discourage cheating) "Community Hero of the Week" trophy for the best individual score, plus a badge (or at least posting of the pets' pictures in Kinzville News) for the top ten total scores - and I guarantee, we'll see a LOT more participation.

So? It isn't a rip off. At least you get a prize.

I look at it this way. I work to achieve the goal every week for the less fortunate children or possibly adults who can't afford to purchase the items from the w shop. I'm sure they appreciate the gifts. I enjoy watching the meter. To me it's exciting to work together to reach the goal and win.

Well think of it this way you can play the game for a second than exit out and you are still entered pus the prize is free instead of paying for it in the wshop.
