Eh, I haven't spent actual money on the game, so the change in currency value doesn't really have a negative impact on me. I was saving up to buy one slot and had 88K coins. I was able to buy 4 slots today.


Important-Pair-3553

But there's no way to earn those coins through events. Those of us sitting at level 40 for several months can't earn chests and suitcases from moving up. We have nothing to work on other than daily activities. The last 2 holiday/seasonal events, everything you sold is 1 coin regardless of it's lvl. After purchasing 4 slots today with whatever coins I had left (didn't realize at that point I couldn't work ib) I have 200 coins left and can't afford to purchase anything from the store to finish my maze.


fsmom

I've been level 40 for awhile. Between piggy banks and 3-day events, I earn enough. I don't spend much though. My gem hoard is over 6000.


Important-Pair-3553

Hopefully they have 3-day events more often. I feel like there's nothing for us to do other than daily tasks


sparkingdragonfly

Curious, how much do you spend daily on the gem energy refills, on average?


fsmom

I only buy energy gem refills during events, and usually stop when the price reaches 20 gems.


Ludovica60

I bought an inventory spot just this week for almost 100k grrrr


nighghtsongs

yep. emptied my in-game wallet on the slot that costed 279k just last week. you know, the one i’d been lackadaisically saving up for for idk how many months. and it’s not just that i can’t make money with IB anymore—it’s that IB’s sudden inaccessibility makes those months feel that much more worthless.


Mike22april

Same :(


EllNell

Your coin stash will replenish itself from piggy banks. It’ll be slower than IB or selling stuff from perfume bottles, but it’ll be enough.


AddysNana071821

Well, yes but some things worked out in our favor & other thing haven't. I saw someone mention that the bush no longer gives the tin can, so they can only continue it by the IB event. We could use the event & the bush. I was very glad I am done when I saw that.


AnnonAutist

But the event is MUCH faster to complete now compared to before and now can’t even do IB to get coins / pass time.


sunflowerseeds_fan

Oh really? I wonder how much they changed the IB event then. Can you share? I don't have access so have no clue.


AddysNana071821

Oh wow


ysth

I was just short of getting that 35th slot for almost 400k. So it was a lot.


rpgnoob17

I was on my 31st slot. The price was 📈📈📈📈📈📈📈📈📈📈 before the update Now my 31st, 32nd, 33rd slots were dirt cheap. I want a refund of all the money I paid for the previous slots…


KnitterGrrrl

Same! And some sort of credit for the higher level items they did away with, the makeup chain and pool floats chain.


Island-life47

Me too! So much wasted coin purchasing the over-inflated slots!


Mffnbttbutbetter

My thing is now we can’t even grind IB for coins so it’s just as much of a slog


Antique_Jacket_1621

We don't talk about storage, No, no, no. We don't talk about stor...age!


rpgnoob17

Now the Bruno song is stuck in my head… even though I have never even watched Encanto.


Antique_Jacket_1621

My work here is done.


energythief

Totally! I mean, I paid a ton of money and went into debt for university, so nobody else in the future should get it cheaper!


Bookishmum

It seems like most of the changes in this latest update are like smacks in the face to higher level players.


ACK_02554

Couldn't agree more. Especially changing the rose bush production item and then expanding the levels for producers.


Mike22april

I just spent 100k on a new slot, and now its just 20k


Ludovica60

Same here....


rad-puppeteer

I was saving up almost 100k to unlock a slot but after the update, I unlocked 4 slots with that money instead... Feel bad for those that unlocked a lot more slots with hundreds of thousands of coins before the update :(


DoINeedChains

Yes, I overspent my imaginary game coins on imaginary game inventory slots. I'll live. Probably.


Ipso-Pacto-Facto

I have two of those flowering bushes I hung onto. Is there a higher level now? Should I merge?


planethalia

I think so- check the album!


lolawyles

I had JUST purchased a new slot after saving up coins for a VERY long time.. I was a little upset about that too. If only I had waited 2 more days :/


Suchandac

Well… I am just happy that now I have to spend less. It’s a game and I am really happy that they listened to our feedback and worked on it


bambooparadise

I feel the exact same way!


Suchandac

I mean I got a bunch of those pink gems too with the update!


bambooparadise

While I don’t view it that way, I can totally understand the sentiment. Hope you find resolution or if anything peace.

Meanwhile can we talk about how I have the wrought iron gate and the mansion from the Boulton Event chain in my storage, symbolic of a gazillion tin cans from tapping the blooming trees. And now I'm back to square one. So I chalked it up to "When life gives you lemons, that's life telling you that your life is gonna suck" So I accepted the harsh reality and I just started the actual 3-day IB Event and I haven't even finished Level ONE yet. So far, I have 20 hedge-hog-spewing bushes and a yellow billboard spewing hedgehogs and I've fed that [insert very bad word here](No, not *that* one. The *other* one. The one ending in "ing") blue chipper thing over and over and over and over and it has only asked for a number lower than 6 FOUR times and virtually all of the others are 7 and above and the [insert that word again] red telephone spits out 1s and 2s and 8s and the occasional 9. And I've been clenching my teeth and spending all my cash on [let's hear it, people] number 5s from the shop. So I got to the part where the [you know the drill] blue chipper wants it's third NINE and I quit. So now I got a board back there filled with bushes spewing out hedgehogs. And a lovely wrought iron gate and mansion in storage. They are the detritus of my stone can journey. I'm afraid to move them out of storage. My perfume bottles disappeared from my board yesterday. END of rant.


ysth

The gate and the mansion still count, so you aren't back to square one. Except that apparently they haven't made the event any less unpleasant to play; I was hoping they had. You do need to use the rotary phone AND the cash register AND buy 5s to make good progress. You should be able to get the level 6 stone arch with 32 level 2 finishes or 11 level 3 finishes or 6 level 4 finishes or 4 level 5 finishes or 3 level 6 finishes or 2 level 7 or 8 finishes or 1 level 9 finish.


Ludovica60

I will never be able to check if the events are more fun to play. I have been denied access!


Otherwise_Quarter704

You are officially my hero. I had been led to believe that since the blooming-tree path had been cut off, the gate and mansion were out of the loop. As soon as I read your comment that the gate is still of use, I used two of my blue cards and it magically climbed up 2 levels to that stone can! I'd never used any of those cards before. WOWSERS. Now if the Mavericks pull off a win tonight, my day will be complete. 😁 Thank you!


ysth

Glad you got there. Just for clarity, the new path (which worked before, but now is the only way to make more can parts) is to get a garden statue as the event reward and use it just like the planted bushes


Otherwise_Quarter704

Thank you. I hadn't known that. I never actually studied the mechanics of the actual event thought playing the event was designed to be totally different with no overlap. Sorry if I'm incoherent. It's 5:30 am and my brain is fried trying to track the ballgame and check in on the Sunny House event and ...


RottenRotties

Yeah, I saw that and basically said where’s my refund? Since we no longer have a way to grind coins, kinda sucks.

cheleball

Things change price in the real world too. It’s a fact of life. 🤷‍♂️


Ludovica60

If you bought an 100k car they usually do not replace it without notice with a 20k car overnight. At least not in my country.


EsterCherry

I’d like my money back for the slots that I bought. But I think I would prefer level 40 or above more. Maybe they’ll get to that eventually 🤷🏼‍♀️


Ipso-Pacto-Facto

I just bought 4 storage spots for about 80k coins. I was working towards the 98k spot. They were ridiculously skewed coin-wise.


LurkerNan

I just bought the next to the last slot yesterday for over 49,000 gold. And today the last slot is only 16,000 gold? I wonder if I can complain to support.


sunflowerseeds_fan

You should. I keep complaining all the time😃


nerdytogether

Buyer beware. Once storage slots got to about 48k I stopped grinding. It didn’t seem like i needed that much storage anyway as by then most of my spawners were max or close to it except the closet. If you paid real money for in game coins, maybe ask for a credit. If you didn’t spend real life money, then just be happy your continuing game will be a little thriftier.


planethalia

In other freemium games I play; I’ve gotten a “rebate” for what I spent that was over the new cost. That would have been nice. I was able to afford a few more storage bins right way, which took some of the sting out of it


ThginkAccbeR

Honestly, if you hate the game so much, why do you play it? You’re like those people who are complaining that student loan debt in the US is being forgiven because they had to pay theirs off. It’s called a change to something! Deal with it!


47981247

Just because you had it tough doesn't mean future players should have it rough too. Also, it's fake. Are we really complaining about "overspending" fake game money?


Otherwise_Quarter704

A couple observations... We had the option of using IB to make money for those slots. People getting the slots for cheap don't have that option. I'm sure most of you were earning the coins without using the booster glitch. But some of us were. I did. And it sure was nice not having to stare at that red phone timer for all those minutes. So we kinda "forgot" to bring it to the attention of the company. And I'm just learning how frustrating it is to even *play* the IB event with all those cobweb Ed 8s. No way could we have looked at IB as a magical harvesting site for money if we had screens filled with cobwebbed 8s. . Looking at the reality, there's a good chance that A LOT of us worked a lot less to get each of those slots than the folks who are gonna be slogging along without having alternative strategies. At the very least we did not worry that we would not have any way to get them. We had workarounds. Weighing the two situations, I feel like I got off *real cheap* One more point. .. Recalling our situation of collecting hundreds of thousands of imaginary dollars to get a slot... II don't have an ending for this sentence: "Gosh, if I didn't have to keep tapping on this screen for those obscenely expensive inventory slots, I could be spending this time doing something I'd enjoy, like _____________________" If the slots were priced the way they are now *and you could not have gotten any money from the Boulton Event* how would *you* have gotten it? Because *that* is what the folks are facing right now. Just sayin"
