The latest update of The Sims Mobile has caused uproar in the community but why and is it justified?
Previously when you brought an item or wallpaper etc in the game you got many different colour swatches of that item once you buy it so you could change between colours as much as you liked for free but for some reason The Sims Mobile team decided to change this for the Winter update. Now when you buy a new item you have to buy the different colour swatches individually:
You’d think that buying the colour entitled you to that item but no, you have to then buy the item once you have paid to unlock the colour!! (with the exception of create a sim items, buying the colour buys that item- but only in that colour) It looks like you get to keep all the ones you already had but for future items you will have to buy the different colours separately for either simoleons or simcash. It looks like they have attempted to reduce the prices but some disgruntled players have said this isn’t the case with all items, for example, one of the fridges now costs 425 simcash!!
This is the last straw for a lot of players and quite frankly I don’t blame them. The issues from the last update also haven’t been fixed for everyone which has added to the anger. I am an EA GameChanger for The Sims Mobile so I like to give a lot of feedback to the team on how the game could be improved but the majority of feedback is ignored which really makes me think that they don’t really care about the players just how much money they can make. I find it really disappointing as I’ve seen some really great suggestions that if they took onboard could make this game a whole lot better.
I’ve played a lot of mobile games and generally if I feel that you cannot play the game without spending money I stop playing, I am not against making in app purchases, every now and then when I see something I like in The Sims Freeplay I buy it because they listen to their customers and I don’t feel like I am being forced to spend money. The Sims Mobile on the other hand have been making quests and events longer to the point that they are now impossible to complete in the time limit, the packs they want us to buy are extremely overpriced and now they have done this to make us spend even more money, if things do not change I will be walking away because in it’s current state it is in app purchases with repetitive tasks to complete in between.
What do you think?
