Default BREAKING NEWS: Crystal Sea Trophy, Only One Per Account

Written by FIA
Sunday, 18 January 2009


Thank you to Webkinz Insider member EXOTERIC for calling our attention to an important change regarding the Trophy for the Treasures of the Crystal Sea game. As you may remember, the Golden Conch Trophy (or Rainbow Glowfish, as it was called prior to November 12th) was awarded to every member who reached the end of the Treasures of the Crystal Sea game, with a limit of one trophy per vacation. Now it appears that the programming has been changed to award only one trophy per account. In fact, it seems like this change may have occured as early as mid-November 2008.

Nearly a dozen members who already had at least one Golden Conch Trophy on their accounts (some of them multiple trophies), have reached the end of the game and not been awarded a new trophy. Instead, the message they got was one that had previously only been seen by members who finished the game twice or more in the same vacation. At this point we are not certain if this is a glitch or if this is the way Ganz intends the programming to be. Either way, if you already have one Golden Conch Trophy on your account, there is no incentive to play the Treasures of the Crystal Sea game again, unless, of course, you really enjoy the game.

:bas:It costs a lot to go on vacation and there really isn't much to do on the island unless you truly enjoy visiting the club house. The game is the only other reason for a person to keep going back to the island. :bas: We are given 24 hours to visit the club house and have fun trying to beat the Treasures of the Crystal Sea game and maybe even win a trophy.
:bas:I thought it was a great incentive for going back to the island and I can't imagine why Ganz would care how many trophy's a person wins, :bas:as long as we pay to come back to play.
:bas:Let's hope it is a glitch! :bas:Linz

thanks for the info, fia. i don't go on vacations that often as they are more expensive to do everyday. i played the games a few times, but with work and all, i sometimes can't back in before the 24 hours is up.
too bad they don't let you get one everytime you win or at least once per vacation.

I fail to understand Ganz' reasoning sometimes. So what if you get a trophy each time you complete the game? Does it cost them anything? Why, why, why do they make it so hard to get anything special?

I gave up vacations a long time ago...I felt like Sheldon needed to sell t-shirts that read "Been There, Done That".

I don't understand this new policy at all I also don't understand why you can't send them or trade them. I really don't comprehend Ganz' logic many times.

Thanks for the update FIA and EXO..I just don't understand this trend of limiting trophies and also making them non-postable....Some of us just don't have a chance at winning certain trophies..and trading for them is a nice option..and again...what's the incentive to continue playing the game if you know you will never win another trophy on that account??...

Well, we won the trophy, so now there's no reason to waste the 500KC traveling any more and especially not play this game any more. GANZ has completely wasted their time creating this game- what's the point on playing it any longer once you win it, and if you can only get one trophy per account? I think the same goes for (Tetris) Bamboo Break... once you get a trophy that's it- so unless you're totally addicted to the game there's no point in ever playing it any more.

GANZ totally needs to hire someone with a little more foresight- how come so many things they do in WW never have any thought put into them past 1 week of operation? They start year-long Academy classes without considering their completion; they start activities (Charm Forest) without checking to see that the prizes get awarded; they hype us all up and then they drop the ball on many contests/ activities (POTM never awards prizes at start of month, floating icons crash computer when clicked, pages lock up when certain items are used).... sheesh.
