Default Re: Hourly Activities?

According to facebook it's something new they're trying in regard to daily activities. Personally, I like it - go on once, and get everything, instead of missing half. I hope it's the same for weekends; living on the west coast means that we always miss the first few hourly activities.

I miss the old way. There aren't as many now. Maybe it is a glitch.

Also, I'm not fond of the recycled/recolored "prizes" for the fall fest. Seems like Ganz is just "phoning it in" now.

Default Re: Hourly Activities?

I'm one of the people who doesn't like it. The fun of the hourly activities is being able to have more, and that little 'surprise' you get when you're on at the hour and there's a game/activity you really like and you get to play it!
There's no bonus spree rolls, free pixie pod seeds, extra wheel spins anymore, which are some of the best perks.

Wish they'd change it back.

Well, of course I know that (I play every day). but just count: we have 4 regular activities now (plus 2 extra for deluxe), and we used to have them from 4-10pm. From 4-10 pm = 7 (sometimes just 6), so we definitely get less. Plus, the changeover from holidays (9am-10 pm) to school days would've been next week and not on Tuesday.

I see your points (don't have to be online every hour), but I do miss it, plus, as Suzuki said, there is not so much variation, and I do miss the snack packs which I got daily, too. I will try to find the bit on facebook where they say they did it on purpose (because I really thought this MUST be a glitch)...

Default Re: Hourly Activities?

I think Ganz is thinking of all the kids that can only get on maybe once a day because of school and other activities. This way they don't miss anything which is really nice!

I like and who to say there is no more bonus spree rolls, free pixie pod seeds and so forth (so far I have gotten both of the mention items). And no one is saying you need to play all the game at that time. I work and have several accounts. I try to do all my accounts before work. When it was hourly I could only take care of one or two now I don't worry knowing that when I get home I can take care of it then. And the old way if it was the only time I could get on and it was something I don't want or need I loose, and let down because something I would like is at a time I can't get on so I miss out. Again I am glad they did this.

Default Re: Hourly Activities?

I like the new way because everyone has a chance to do everything no matter where they live or when they work. They are on a school schedule now with fewer activities but in the summer there often was a good one at 6 AM. I live on the west coast and that is 3 AM where I live and I'm not getting up at that time to do something. This also makes it easier to not have to worry about time changes and it also solves the problem on Asian accounts where you could never do an hourly because the time was off.

Maybe there are fewer things and we can ask for more but I hope they keep it this way.

And I JUST bought a calendar which has 2 lines for every hour, lol, which I JUST bought for Webkinz, to write down what is on.
On facebook, only 2 people commented on it, and they didn't reply.

I guess we will have to wait and see if they keep it that way.
I count 6 regular activities today plus two for the puggle pup and two deluxe.

Default Re: Hourly Activities?

yes, TODAY there are 5 activities (not 6, unless you count the "flooring assistant job", which, to me is not a real activity), but normally the activities at weekends ran from 9 am to 10 pm (and when was there ever an activity at 6 AM?? They always started at 9 am at weekends and at 4 pm during the week)), which makes 14 (FOURTEEN) an a regular Saturday, as opposed to the 5 we get today. And during the week, there are usually 6 or 7 (6 if, sometimes, for one hour there was nothing), as opposed to the 4 we got.

We did have major problems with the Asian and European accounts, this is true, but they managed to fix them (if they introduced this change because they were not able to fix these problems, I would've understood), so I don't think it is related to that.

As I said, I see the advantages you guys are pointing out, but I still think it is so odd that they just changed this without any notice whatsoever, and that they replaced it by so few acitivities.

I guess my main problem is that when the hourly events were on, even if I missed some while out, I always felt as if I had something to come back to, as if the pets were waiting for me and wanted to do something with me. Now, when I am finished, I think, ok, nobody needs me here, and it is kind of a sad feeling.

Default Re: Hourly Activities?

I am pretty sure they changed this due to several factors.
1) People aren't logging in as often any more. It used to be we would be there hour after hour playing and making sure we caught all the dailies. Now it is a convenient lump sum event at any time.
2) There have been long standing issues with Euro/Asian account holders not being able to play at all and they were definitely in danger of losing them (if they haven't already)
3) With the move to going 'app-style' some of the changes are being particularly difficult to re-program and rather than drop them they have made some creative adjustments. I am sure this is one of many they may not 'discuss' with their users. A lot of people don't like change if things appear to be working well on their end. And like the dock, many, many people want it to revert back.
If we want to have our Webkinz we might have to be prepared for a paradigm shift, that's all there is to it. Some of it will come as a surprise, pleasant or not and we will just have to grow with it.
