I have a lot of fun on VMK and enjoy the challenge of winning a host game or getting into a host room... but:
Is it just me... or does it seem like you often have to click your fingers off hundreds of times to get into a host room only to find a game that requires you to match two number generators to win a measly 200 credits, or wait for hours for the chance to buy a Tiki Fountain... or play a team game that you have a 1 in 6 chance to win. During the time you click and click and click and click... then (if you're lucky) the time you wait and wait and wait and wait in the queue... you could be playing Mansion, Pirates or Fireworks and earn enough credits to buy 10 of whatever prize they're offering.
Don't get me wrong. This is all virtual stuff and it isn't costing anything. We all have too much time on our hands (or we're ignoring stuff we really need to be doing in real life) by being here at all!
But: The first challenge for any host room is to even get yourself into the queue! You probably click for half an hour (or more) to even get that far! Frankly, just getting in the queue is worth a prize in my book. The concept of "consolation prize" would make the host rooms a lot more attractive in my opinion. I'm not sure I'm willing to sacrifice 60 to 90 minutes of VMK play for the possibility of coming out with NOTHING!
I like the teleport games because people move through quickly, the queue opens often and you can actually participate... and win a prize.
I'm not sure that I'm willing, anymore, to click 500 times to finally get into a queue... then wait 45 minutes to finally get into the room... then play a game that I only have a minimal chance of winning... for a prize that I will be able to buy or trade-for tomorrow.
VMK, I know you're reading this. Here are some suggestions:
Don't limit queues to 45 people. Make them endless. I'd rather click once and find myself 758th in line than click over and over forever and never become one of the anointed 45. This would give the me option of deciding if I want to wait 758 spaces... or just go earn some credits playing a mini-game.
The teleporter games are brilliant. They are people eaters and the move-through works!
Offer EVERYTHING for sale. For those who are willing to pay $10k credits for a Red Holiday Chair... put it in the Emporium specials.
For those who can't afford to pay $10k credits for the Red Holiday Chair, make it a free prize in a host game.
Everyone has a chance
