While I know a lot of people dislike Slash, you have to admit he knows how to work money and the economy. Just think — Slash is getting 5 teos and only having to give away ONE per set to the person. People were getting paid like $35 dollars per set and now he’s figured out a way to get them for free and make 400% (4 teos: 1 teo) each time someone submits a set.

Teos.  TEOS TEOS TEOS OMG I am so bored with this, enough already!  The site has to come to a screeching halt so everyone and their brothers/uncles/cousins/former roommates can have 12345 teos - well, recently not for those who cannot art because hahaha the alternative means of getting teos also came to a standstill (if you listen closely you can hear crickets chirping in the AC).  Regardless, the only thing rare about teos at this point are their site colorations.  Can we please move on to the next big Aywas thing already? (and of course proceed to destroy everything good and shiny about it too)

Friendship bites

I would just like to say that a lot of you disappoint me. There’s one person in general I am vastly disappointed in, but I know she isn’t the first or last to do this.

Making friends is great. The more the merrier. But it makes you look like a real douche bag when you start ignoring old friends for new ones. When we met, you weren’t a new player, but you didn’t really have many friends. You had a handful of people you might ask advice from, or get help from if you needed it, but you didn’t talk to them if you didn’t need something from them or vice versa. But then you and I met.

We became fast friends. We stayed up all night and talked into early morning. We exchanged phone numbers and skype information, and talked to each other when we weren’t at our computers. This went on for months. We bought each other Christmas and birthday presents, and entered contests together.

But suddenly, new friends started pouring in. I’m fine with this, I’m not expecting you to be only mine, but damn, I didn’t expect you to completely drop me. You’ve always dabbled in pet coloring, but you rapidly got better, and you attracted more customers/other artists. These people wouldn’t talk to you if you couldn’t color, if you couldn’t edit. Even now, I see you’re on skype, I sent you a greeting, and you don’t answer, but you’re posting in forums constantly. It makes me feel like you’re purposely ignoring me, and that hurts. 

I liked you for you, not for your art or your virtual money, but your sarcastic, cynical, funny personality. Now you’re surrounded by leeches and I really, really miss you.

I wish the scav had the tires again; so even if you didn’t get everything done you still got a little something.

I worked so hard last year just to come up only 5 points short of even getting the lowest points to spend; so the team got NOTHING for scav. To say the least; it sucked big time.

Last Scav was my first time ever. I was so excited to have found a team that would take me, and that I fit into decently well. I tried really hard, even making a 3-4 hour drive to complete a task, sacrificing RL commitments to make Scav points, translating until I was dizzy, and my teammates and I only got 5 Scav points for the shop. It was so much work, emotional strain, and stress for such a paltry reward that I don’t think I’m ever going to try it again. It was so disheartening that I had to take a few months off on hiatus just to get back into the swing of things.

I feel like teos are becoming so deviated from their original plan and not fun as of late :( Everyone is getting these teos that aren’t even eggs, knowing exactly what they’re getting. I get that it’s nice to choose and KNOW, but I feel like the point and the fun of Teos was the egg— not knowing what you’d be getting and waiting with excitement for the egg to hatch.

To anyone who believs Aywas is unfair to nonartists

With the latest Aywas art contests I feel like I’ve been seeing more and more of this sentiment lately. You know the idea that Aywas is unfair to nonartists or something. So to anyone who truly believes Aywas rewards artists too much, I want to remind you of a few points:

1. No one is forcing you to be a “non-artist”. People are not either born with art skills or not born with art skills. Many of the great artists on Aywas only became good artists because Aywas encouraged them to get better at art! If you truly believed Aywas was disproportionately unfair in favor of artists, you would be willing to work to become an artist yourself to take advantage of this disproportionate favoritism. ;)

2. By design, art is one of the greatest assets on Aywas, so it makes sense to reward the artists who make it! Without the lovely user artists on Aywas, we wouldn’t have Teos, breeding, lovely custom designs, or even most of our site pets to begin with! So if you enjoy that pretty Melo of yours with flawless edits, then understand that is a GOOD thing that Aywas gives artists a reason to stick around and keep their art skills sharp.

3. Riding on the last point, Aywas is a unique game where art is one of the core gameplay mechanics. In a game like Tetris or Bejeweled or whatever have you, you become good by spending lots of time practicing the game. Many common user goals involving doing lots of breedings or owning lots of pretty customs more or less involve art. Being a good artist is one of the ways to be “good at Aywas”. Aywas encourages you to practice your art skills to become better at Aywas.

Hey, if you have a problem with the DNC I pulled, there ARE other ways to contact me. You just have to look for them. So MAYBE we can talk like a MATURE adult. And then, maybe, we might just talk about the DNC being erased.
