LTD POLL RESULTS: GACHA – OVER IT OR LOVE IT?
Over the last 3 days, our readers have been answering a poll we created on whether people still love gacha, or if they are completely over it.
2014 was easily the year of the Gacha and we are constantly seeing mixed reviews of this event concept on social networks, so we wanted to know the views of shoppers in Second Life and our results were very interesting. Over 1,000 people answered and the final results are as follows:
What does this tell us? Well, by looking at these results, over half of the people that answered this poll are ”Over It’. After reading the comments posted, we have found that many people are mostly tired of two things.
1. The amount of Gacha type events that have been created. It is simply way too many and an overkill.
2. That a lot of shoppers are seeing designers creating Gacha sets simply as a ”get rich quick” scheme.
LTD’s VIEWS AFTER RESULTS
After finding these results, reading the comments and such, we can’t help but feel that Gacha’s are way overdone. Is there a need for all of these Gacha events nearly every single month? The Arcade started it all (by this we mean the trend) and maybe that is where it should remain.
We also read comments from people about the quality of Gacha items, and that designers are making simple products and just changing the color and using that as a ”get rich quick” scheme. Maybe improving the quality, quantity and overall selection of a Gacha set would entice people more. It seems many are tired of seeing the same items over and over again and Gacha sets where all of the commons are the exact same product, but a different color.
These findings do clearly show that a surprisingly large majority of shoppers are getting tired of Gacha though, that is something we cannot deny. Whether anything will change in the near future, we will just have to wait and see.
