Outrage Over Spikes? Trading BETAS for New Spikes?

Hey Jammers, this past day Spikes have taken Jamaa by storm.  I have heard a lot of different opinions of the spiked collar sale. Some people love the idea, and some hate it.

Case One: Why it's GOOD

First of all, non members can finally wear a spike collar and necklace. That caters to a huge group of people. It's awesome non-members can enjoy a favored AJ item! Some would argue this will put down the value of it, because anyone can get it. But I don't know about that. Members have better chances of getting diamonds (you get at least one every day), while non-members rarely get diamonds. 

There are new color combinations for new spikes! This adds a lot of variety, and can fit any Jammer's lifestyle.

Case Two: Why it's BAD

I've heard a lot of people complain about the spikes. They say it will flood the "rare" spike market, and the whole trading market for that matter. They complain spikes are no longer rare or desirable, or at least will become so, because it's so accessible. That's fair, I could see how you would be disappointed to see spikes are no longer few and far between.

The new spikes, both member and non member, will completely turn the trading system upside down. At least for a week or so. I've witnessed this first hand. I've seen people who don't have enough diamonds put up BETAS and massive amounts of rares for a single spike. That's insane! I haven't seen an item be CURRENTLY for sale with people lining up, ready to trade betas for it.

Overall, what's your take? Do you think this is a good idea, or will it do more harm than good? Do you think the trading market will flop because of this? Do you think they'll be considered even more rare after the sale is over? Let me know! Honestly, I'm happy non-members get spikes, and I'm amazed at the turn of events with trading!


  1. I'm a little late for this, but welcome back!!! I'm so happy you decided to return! Your blog has always been an excellent resource. :D

    In relation to this specific post, I kind of HOPE Spiked Collars go down in rarity. It just seems unsustainable for one item to be the backbone of the trading system. If the system collapses, it should rebuild itself to be stronger and less reliant on a single item currency.

    I'll keep reading!


    1. Hey!!! Thanks!! I've been meaning to message you saying hi again lol, it's so good to talk to you again.

      And I totally agree with you, spikes have had a hold on people ever since they came out.
