Disclaimer: It seems I was able to keep up with only a certain amount of positivity while writing this as the bugs in the actual game bug me a lot.
It is obvious that I'm not the only one having issues with this Spark'd thingy, that's for sure.
But I am trying
to stay positive. I really am, though it really isn't my cup of tea. I don't even like reality TV tbh. But I do love The Sims, so I would really like to like this thing, you know? Maybe I'd get some new ideas for my builds, gameplay or so on and maybe (just maybe) this is produced and paced and overall made better than some other content I've come across (there must be a nice budget after all at least). I _want_ to like this.
I must not be the only one here on the forums who doesn't use social media platforms (IG, YT, Twitter etc.) to follow TS content or for any other reasons but that's not the point
. I am but a simmer, a simple one, and getting a bit old already, and having a huge lack of interest on "subscribe and like" and all that nonsense. I don't even have a clue what these gamechangers(?) are. And I'm totally happy being ignorant, just to be clear.
The problem is that I have no idea who these people are who'll be on the show.
And that's making it even more difficult for me to get excited or even interested at Spark'd at all. Who are they? What have they done? Where did they come from?(we all know where do they go - to a irrelevant 100k game show yeehaw cotton-eyed-joe)
As stated above, I don't use social media so all links to the contestants profiles/channels/etc will be of no use to me. If someone would like to point me out to a direction where I could get a grasp of who these people are, why they are popular or what makes them special in other ways I'd be grateful. Maybe some forum links or something like that? I tried to google but all I could find was shallow news of this thingy so maybe it's just too soon after the announcement?
But I started this thread in hopes that you - the other simmers who know about this stuff and follow these "influencers" - to explain to me why I should be interested in these contestants and without any ill will:Why do they deserve the 100k opportunity
And why would I want to watch them trying to win? Emphasis on "them" - if the show will be good it won't really matter if I don't know the contestants beforehand.
Thanks in advance if someone is willing to take the time and effort to enlighten me :>
