Well isn't it Sony that tell's us that they want our feed back?  They have a post every Month asking what we want added to Home?  If you're not happy speak up!  Use you're voice and stand up for what you think Home should be. 

 

Everyone should be doing this...

I think we can't really complain since it was a free event from a free service with free prizes.

However, AZ4 says that Lockwood made the items (and I'm guessing the event too) and they seem to listen to community feedback, so I'd say bringing it up to them is definitely worth a shot.

This.

My friend was telling me earlier, about how the tail was the best reward.

Maybe I would agree, if there were other items to go with it.

 

Plus, the female vampire teeth don't look right. The males, look just fine.

So that's a downside.

The nails will only benefit females, but not males.

 

& god, don't get me started on that paper mask.

Have to admit some of the curses are pretty neat. Overall the rewards for this event aren't all that special. If they been part of an attractive costume I would think they would have been well received by the community.

 

Of all the curses the Big Eye is the most interesting one for me.

Well, atleast the paper mask isn't tied to some ugly hairstyle like most items that should be in the accessory/glasses slots. My opinion is though trying to make a Sugar Skull an eye mask is a little awkward looking. If a dev could somehow figure out how to give our avatars face paint that would've been cooler for the sugar skull. Maybe someday..

LikeaSo.

 

& I would suggest the curses as permanent items but I didn't think I would have to.. I think this is either the first or seems like the first time our avatars could wear something we couldn't keep. (In JP, there was the April Fool's Irem event where you had centaur/satyr looking avatars you couldn't keep Smiley Sad) & As far as the free argument is concerned. It isn't free. Because you don't keep it. We see it as a waste of what could be a nice item(and a waste of whoever made the curses time) that I'm sure a lot of us wouldn't mind paying a 1$ or so for either.

I go more for the company than for the rewards. Quite a few on my japan list there. Smiley Happy
