Ameba Gold Inflation

In economics, inflation is a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services.

Hmm, sounds a little like what's happening now, doesn't it?

I mean, check out these pastel blocks! I mean, HOW EXCITING, RIGHT? Surely they must cost gummies like the rest of the blocks in the game because that would make se ...

Wait... what? 100 gold??? Yeah, okay, it's for 10 of them, but for the amount of blocks one needs to actually build, this price is outrageous! I mean, first they overload us with premium gachas, and now this. I really am starting to think that the Pico economy is suffering ...

LOOK! I've even resorted to stri-- I mean, entertaining in the adult-exclusive industry to make my money! Every Sunday, The Hound has demanded that I come and dance at his villa.

This just isn't fair! Something needs to be done, and fast! Pico is slowly turning into a paid game, which is going to lose A LOT of players. Facebook games are supposed to be generally free to play with a FEW extras to pay for.

Geez all I blog about is gold complaints lately. Sorry for my BORING!

  2. But you're right >.< ameba pico is slowly getting there. just like in pigg :|

  3. yeah!!! so damn right!... and the part that talks about "pico being a paid game and losing players" is just SAD! i don't want them to turn out just like zynga which games are just so full of commercials and scams.

  4. I totally know what you mean. I play Pico everyday and when I come on I get a little depressed. I want so much stuff, but everything costs money! And now they got to the blocks. This is suppose to be for international users, and they should know North America (I'm not really sure about other countries) has major money issues. Pico should be a bit nicer to us, and have more stuff for gummies. Maybe some nice, nice stuff for gold.

  5. I guess its "ok" that its for 10
    But I jusr persumed they would be for gummies too! D:

  6. Ayu, don't be so hard on yourself! It's not boring to discuss this stuff, because I'm sure plenty of people can relate to how you feel. And, since we know that we are one of the very few blogs which the workers at Ameba actually read, it might help out in the long run.

    Anyways, I've honestly been feeling the same way for a while. There was a time when I held Pico in higher regards than Pigg because of the way things were priced. I'm sure people remember me saying "I don't play on Pigg anymore because everything costs gold." Fast forward a few months later, and that's starting to become the case for Pico as well. It's not nearly as bad, though, because there are plenty of great items to buy on Pico with gummies. But, between a majority of the Christmas items and all the Premium Gachas, it's wrong to assume we'd have much gold left over just to spend on a set of 10 blocks. In the end, my issue isn't exactly with the fact that items cost gold. My issue is that there's far too much going on at the same time, and the prices for certain items are getting a bit ridiculous.

  7. We better start stacking up, just in case y'know. =3=

  8. Aww thanks Pinkers <3 That's really nice of you to say ^^
