    So I fell out of FreePlay for a long time but I love my Sims I have in the game, I missed them a lot. I started the game up again and installed all the updates only to be sorely disappointed when I logged in.

    What are these VIP Points?! You can only get VIP Points by buying store bundles?! And you can only get certain really nice items with VIP Points?! Weren't social points, lifestyle points and orbs enough?! Why do we need FOUR different types of premium currency? That's utterly ridiculous, even for a freemium mobile game, that is insane!


    Now I can't even enjoy the game at all, it's free to play but not free to have fun anymore, apparently and I'm so depressed because I spent months and months carefully cultivating all my Sims, growing their families, building up the town and making nice houses for them. Sims FreePlay was my little Garden of Eden I could carry around in my pocket and now I'm not allowed to enjoy it anymore unless I cough up lots of money? It can hardly even be considered a free-to-play game anymore, honestly.

    I am probably more upset over this than I should be, considering it's a freemium mobile game and most Simmers don't even care about FreePlay anyway but I feel like these Sims I spent months falling in love with have been tied up and held for ransom by EA.

    I used to play a long time ago, back when they added the ski stuff. Remember? It was so awesome, I had so many LPs! Then I took a long break because I discovered PC Sims. I tried to go back and everything had changed. My tons of LPs were worthless! I deleted the app and will never look back.

    BAH!

    I read that you have to PAY so your Sims don't age up and die. SAAAY WHAAAT?

    I just discovered recently about these VIP points - IT'S ABSURD! The whole meaning of FreePlay is gone...

    That's incredibly frustrating. I stopped playing much further back because im stingy about money when it comes to mobile games and i generally need to not let my phone become a huge time sink (i should have learned my lesson with Pixel People), but i too would be upset too

    hopefully the cool parts come into sims 4 (and the microtransactions stay far far away)

    I am playing this as well but only when I am truly bored. I hate it that they put in these vip points.
    It's kinda like the new quest they opened up, I can't even start it as it keeps saying that my simmies are to busy, yet there not doing anything.
    I am annoyed with it but can't really fuss about it since it is just a free game (sort of any way).

    you know you could just create your sims back in The sims 4? it's a lot productive, I'd played Sims Freeplay before and what ticks me off is the time to finish quests and interactions....

    Sims free play has 3 to 4 times the content of TS4. They have pets and toddlers, they have things never seen in any PC Sims game. I think it would just make me sad trying to recreate any of my SFP Sims in TS4 because of how lacking TS4 would seem in comparison.

    I agree, mobile games are pure robbery! The Sims Freeplay I just can't play, mostly because the graphics are just awful and because of the premium currency it's almost impossible to play unless you spend money on it.. which I'm not about to do when I have the awesome version on my laptop?? It's a fail.
