    Why the Sudden Popularity with Host Rooms?

    Ever since Halloween, there have been HUGE lines for the Host Rooms.

    Just a few minutes after a Host Room opens for an event, it is not unusual at all to see the lines get up to 1000+ people.

    Why the sudden spike in popularity?

    I assumed they were so popular in October because the month of September had zero events, so everyone was excited to see them again.

    But it's Decemeber and there are still huge lines.

    And the thing is, most of the Host events now are worthless because they don't normally offer any prizes (and there certainly are no more Host pins anymore).

    Anyone have any insight on why this happens? Do you think they'll ever subside in popularity?

    Well, its just got up on popularity. I think everyone doesnt understand their isnt a prize. People still are stuck onto the royal Ride a thon.

    Celeb-mentality. Hosts are looked (by many people) as celebrities.

    As for being stuck on something, many are still thinking the hosts are giving out dreams ears

    That and guests/players enjoy stalking guests and buddying up with them for various reasons.

    And since most Host Rooms aren't games or ride games for a prize/pin the lines aren't moving quite as much either. Plus, with the trade pin rooms those have always been quite popular.

    I guess it's the whole "a crowd attracts a crowd" mentality.

    Don't players realize that it wasn't worth it to wait for something that is just one of those "hang out" rooms since they didn't get anything for it?

    It stinks because you only get one shot at things like the Teleporter rooms.

    The rooms are useless if they dont give a prize.They either make you go on a ride or if its a hang out room the host boots you if you are there to long.Its a waist of an hour I say.

    True.

    And what's the point of the teleporter rooms? Where do they even take you now? You don't get any messages whether you win or lose. You're lucky if you get to do a quest from that.

    That is why I don't understand why the lines are so long.

    November had nothing to do with the holidays, yet still had huge lines.

    Will it ever subside?
