Break the Rules

If you like gachas, but hate the dreaded lag, endless full sims, or duplicate commons that come from such machines, then you should probably check out the new PocketGacha event. I picked up these new sneakers from Vale Koer, one of the sponsors of this new event and I confess, it is the most painless gacha experience I have ever had.

If you’re just now hearing about it, PocketGacha is a monthly gacha event that is completely HUD based. This means no more fighting lag or waiting for the usual sim campers to get their shit and get out. You can shop pretty much anywhere.

Here’s how it works:

  • Grab your PocketGacha HUD. You can do this on the SL Marketplace,¬†at the PocketGacha Headquarters or via the inworld group. If you join the group, you’ll automatically receive the HUD on the 15th of each month.
  • You can choose to play the gachas via your HUD with either Lindens or Tokens. For those of you that are unsure about giving access to your Lindens to the HUD itself, you can purchase tokens from the PocketGacha HQ at a non-refundable 1:1 transfer rate. The tokens will then be added to your HUD for easy play. Oh, and don’t worry, they rollover!
  • Finally, you can flip through the HUD catalog and pay to play each gacha, or if you prefer, you can buy the entire set outright. I definitely love this idea for the savings alone!

The HUD is super easy to use, and as you can see offers a way to search, sort and manage your favorite gachas for each round. It also offers help, landmarks and useful information about this newest event.

So, what do you think about the new concept of PocketGacha?

Making Waves

For the longest time I have been wanting to play with Disney inspired outfits, and finally the perfect opportunity arose to channel a little mermaid. My Ariel themed ensemble, of course, couldn’t be possible without new releases from Uber in the form of fishy scale skirt (Valentina E.) and long, beachy waves from Truth.

If you’re a Disney lover like me, I’d love to see your Ariel (or other character) inspired creations!
