How are you liking Izzy’s Shop? I would like to share my feedback and concerns.
After seeing all the cool items you could potentially get in Izzy’s Shop I decided to give it a try myself. I bought a bunch of Fashion Gems using SimCash with IRL money. After trying multiple times for a good design, my overall satisfaction wasn’t great. It is very costly to redesign items if you don’t get anything you like. 16 Fashion Gems is a bit outrageous considering you can just claim what you get and retry for 20. I understand it should cost more if you “pin” and item, but 16 Gems “no pins” is a lot.
I get that these are mostly cosmetic items. EA has a right to charge whatever they feel is fair for these designs, but it seems that free to play users are at a severe disadvantage. I would be very happy if they lowered the “no pin” cost to retry a design. Currently it is only a 4 Fashion Gem discount between retrying a design, or creating a whole new design.
What are your thoughts? I would love to hear them!
