Rares Coming Back?

     I'm pretty sure 90% of Jammers know that Gazelle Horns came back, in every single colour! They aren't even worth an Epic Wonders item anymore! But how do you Jammers feel about it? 

Are you upset? 
Are you overjoyed? 
Do you not care? 
How do you think this will impact on the Animal Jam community? Do you think that rare people would quit? 
Do you think more rares will come back? If so, are you happy?
Are you quitting Animal Jam because of this? 
Are you playing more of Animal Jam because of this?
Do you think there will be less scams?

    1. No they are not! It singles people with rares down to few people who are targeted and end out bawling their eyes out!!

  4. I personally don't think it's fair because the rare people, like me, have worked hard to get these rare items and now un-rare people are just getting it for free.

    1. People work hard for rares? WHOA! It's fake stuff. I mean, it's not like rares are going to benefit you in a good way. Stop working hard.

    2. Dude you're just saying 'un-rare' people like you're so much better than them. You shouldn't judge people by how rare they are. Gazelles are just pixels and Animal Jam is not your life. Someday you will quit Animal Jam and gazelles won't matter anymore.

    Do you think more rares will come back? If so, are you happy?yes i think more rares would come back but im not happy because i work hard to get my rares.
    Are you quitting Animal Jam because of this?no but im sad becouse i work hard to get my rares.

  6. I'm not sure if this is scamming, but I bought a gazelle horn then I traded it to some one for a zios sculpture because the person I trade it to didn't know that gazelles were in shops. Now I think about it it might be scamming

    1. It's the same item, just obtained differently. I think your being pretty greedy, and if you worked hard for that item, I have a question...
      Did you worked hard for it for looks? ( You like how it looks on your animal ) Or did you work hard for it for the label ''BETA?'' ( You wanted it for the ''rarity") If you answered #2, I think your probably a little greedy.

  9. Ahem. The beta day's, you can buy everything, I mean you didn't have to work for them. Now days everyone's like NOOO no beta day's! What I'm tryin to say is, everyone wants to work. Think in the beta day's. Ok in fact I'm not talking about this anymore... Next point: If all comes back you can get back your items for gazelles. AJ is tryin to stop hacking and stuff.They are trying to bring back what it was used to be (what every one assumes) next: They can stop bullying their rarer. If they hold their head high that's good. But what if their weak hearted and can't find a way? Also a fact: Founders isn't beta ):T it's pixels. Items don't care. (Unless that's like Your FAAAVORITE item I have some to)

    1. Besides, the term "beta" doesn't mean a rare time of Animal Jam. It's only a stage of making the game (second stage). They say they want the beta "days" back. Either they want to go back in time or the want AJ to shut down and then start the process of starting back up again so they can get their rares. :P

  10. I'm not really upset because I didn't have gazelles. However, someone traded there gazelles for my robot and howl plauge and I accepted (it's not really scamming I guess).
    I'm happy because too much of some people's lives are wasted on imaginary items and there will be less scamming, drama, and people judging on how rare other people are.
    I think some rare people might quit but there will still be a lot of rare obsessed people who think they're so much better than everyone else to ruin innocent people's lives.

  11. I do not pick sides but i do think that it would be really good to get rares and beta stuff back in stores. it would stop the scamming that happens DAILY! it will make others see they are NOT more important or better then others, and most likely a good 50% of AJ bullying scamming and hacking will stop. I wouldn't say I was rare but I do have a lot of betas and rares to spare and I just got a long green rare wrist this morning, the way i see it i agree with most of you...everything is just a pixel and nothing on this game can "control your life" so its great you worked hard to get what you want and even though rare spikes and globes may come back in stores, aren't you still proud that during the time they were rare that you actaully got one!!?? I mean ya I would be a little upset but i would be happy that I was still one of the few people who actaully got one, so stop explaining and be happy you have what you have!!

  12. I think it's kind of sad that they brought gazelles back because people worked really hard to get there gazelles by trading spiked collars and stuff for them.

    1. Well, they still have the item, it's not like it's gone. It's just able to be obtained differently, and it doesn't come with the label '' BETA'' or ''RARE" for the Jammer.

  13. Animal Jam rares do not matter - This game was made for friends and learning, anyway! I don't think its wrong for them to do it. Now, people will have no need to scam them, unless they didn't know they came back!

  14. There are many excellent answers above, and anything I could say would just be redundant.
    I just want to add, that after reading the comments from those who are 'sad' about this- especially this person-

    "I personally don't think it's fair because the rare people, like me, have worked hard to get these rare items and now un-rare people are just getting it for free." (Just.. WOW)

    and this person-
    "and i have a question are rare gazelle horns still epic and beta?"

    .. this item that you are clearly very emotionally attached to, what is it about said item that means so much to you? Is it truly the item, or is it the status and sense of entitlement that comes with having this item? Because one of you asks if it is still 'epic' and the other blatantly states that 'non rare' people will just 'have it for free'. O_O I don't even know what to say..

    *Technically these 'non-rare' ppl will be purchasing their gazelles in store, therefore they are not getting them 'for free' as was one of your main complaints. Also, they will be purchasing with gems acquired by completing a game or adventure of some sort, so they will also have 'worked' for them as you stated a reason for why this is so unfair*

    Anyhow, I digress. My point is that you have the item, so why in the world does it matter one bit that it is now also available to anyone else who may like it as much as you do?! You are not entitled to this item, any more than that just joined, mediocre, or 'un-rare' jammer who can now enjoy it just as you do. Unbelievable!! >.<

    For me, obviously, it is extremely upsetting to see ppl reacting this way. If I have more than one of a certain coveted item, or if I don't like something that is popular to other jammers, I gladly just give it to a friend. I am always a little sad when a buddy is like, completely shocked and overjoyed.. because that is very telling of the greed and obsession that exists in the game, and among one another :(

    I don't care about what I can GET for certain things; I don't see other ppl simply as opportunities, or look at ppl for what I can GET from them. I have a light pink headdress, I like a lot. My animal wears it everyday. I traded a beard, party hat and rare red spike for it. Big deal. If tomorrow every single jammer was also wearing one, that they bought in jam mart clothing, I wouldn't become sad and upset because suddenly I'm not one of only a few ppl who have it or because it is no longer a highly sought after, overtraded, uncommon item. I like it simply because I like it, not because of any inflated, elitist sense of entitlement I gain from it. So yes- this situation is very, very sad indeed. Some of you just aren't getting it.

    3. You are 100% right for a few reasons actually...


      Less "rares" means less scamming


      How could a pixelated item mean so much to you?


      what benifit do you get from "beta" gazelle horns?



      This whole 'rares' thing is stupid.



      I know all this and i quit AJ years ago.

  15. I am not rare, not at all, in fact I don't have any rares, but I probably will still quit. The only reason I played was for collecting rares, and I am so furious about this!

    1. hey, u want rares, then go on the return of the phantoms in hard mode, u get lots of rares from there. one time i got silver rare bow and arrows. and my sis got the rarest color fox hat, white. or become a member and get an eagle and go in the forgotten desert. you get tons of rares and betas from there! all the good things i remember i got were bongo drums, rare spike, 2 rare spiked wrists, open sign, lava archway, robot, pot o gems,and tan carpet.

  16. 1- Im not upset since I didnt have gazzelles before
    2- Whoa whoa whoa, I am glad they are back,but I am not Overjoyed
    3- I care 45%
    4- I guess that now Gazzelles will be more common and with less people saying ''WAT FOR UR GAZZ PLZ I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING THEM FOR MONTHS!"'
    5- Some Rare people who depend on their gazzelles to be rare might be upset.
    6- Some rare might come back, however, not on their usual/beta form, for example, the basketball hoop came out, posibly to resemble the ball. I would like other versions/colors of rares.
    7- I said I cared 45%, not 99%
    8- Meh, Yet again, 45% aint even 50%, so I will leave my AJ schedule the same, for now'
    9- Probably there will be less scammers, but some clever and annoying scammers might USE them to scam

  17. After reading alot of comments i have mixed feelings about the whole of Animal Jam changing alot of the items. I fell like they are tearing a part of the community appart and trying to change it too much. I do not care, nor does it change my oppinion on someone weither you are rare or not. Yes, it is fun to collect rare items. Knowing you worked really hard for them and feeling like you achieved something. Yes they are pixels. Games are pixels. People like me played animal jam not also for the community but for the fun of collecting the items. Not to brag about being rare. To search and trade up and up to get better and better items. So that we could achieve our dream spike collar or our dream founders hat or gazelle horns. I disagree and agree with what animal jam is doing.

    I do not like the fact that people are called unrare or rare. However, less rare people tend to care more about having parties in their dens or buddying people. I tend to find it the older you are on animal jam the less you have fun in parties in your dens and having buddies. Enjoying socializing and doing whatever you do with your buddies. This is why i find it more enjoyable to collect items. I find myself left out in the community, feeling a tad older and mature then the average people on the game. Which is why we cling onto collecting rare items and such. The average age of people on animal jam is around sometimes 7-12 and people older can play but will understand me completely. I do not feel like i cannot talk to people younger then me, but i realise that they do not always understand me and well as I think.

    Due to youtubers such as Julian2 everyone dreams to become like them. Trying to hoard rare items or betas to seem more popular, rare and famous. Seeking more attention because of their items. I have seen many accounts on youtube called something similar to 'insertusernamehereAJ'. They try to make their own videos and become well known. You can't blame them, i do it because i love making videos. Some people want the fame or fortune. Not everyone is the same. I had my channel before i even played animal jam to be honest.

    Now about the release of Rare Spike collars in the eagle adventures and betas. Me and my sister worked really hard for our spikes. We loved the look of the spikes, and this was before we even really got into animal jam properly. There was no diamond shop no other spiked collars and nor many non rare options of many items we wanted. We didnt have the adventures to get betas, we traded up and up. Getting items like monday rares, which we traded like 3-4 for rarer items. Rare bows then for betas ect. Something like that. We worked so hard for our items. We didnt all want to look the same with the same store items. Also because we loved collecting and dreamed of wearing the items. It may seem silly to you but not everyone finds it easy to be friendly or have parties in your den. We preffered colelcting items, it practically engulfed us because we would work every hour trading. Now, all to waste.

    I love the way you work hard to get your betas and such but i think animal jam could inculde a new bonus to the game. To show appreciation to their members that worked really hard before they was easier to reach. Such as adding a addon to the game where you can left click on the item. Being able to see the date it was created (obtained by the original/first owner). Telling you if it was from beta/first release or such. It wouldn't matter much but makes you happier knowing that your hard work is still there. They could even add who the original owner of the item was. Which would be pretty cool.

    1. I totally agree with you!
      The only reason that I play on Aj is to trade with my friends! I know that people are getting upset because they can't get enough rares to get what they want, but that's life. What's the point of living if you can have everything the minute you want it? You get bored, and then life becomes purposeless.

      I miss the beta days, and I know they wont be coming back, but at least leave me a piece of myself! I was there! I know what it's like! After the beta days you got monthly member gifts, that you would trade for other things you want. I believe instead of bringing The Adventures and cheap knock off spikes and such, Animal Jam should give Monthly Member Gifts!

      Back when they did, they were making TONS of money! Why did they stop doing that? Because little kids couldn't get what they wanted and stopped playing, even when they were non members! I know Aj is educational, but seriously guys? It's getting boring.

      I'm actually considering quitting because Aj is stupid now! They have ruined the purpose for most pre-teens and teens. Once you turn 8 years old, you realize that it's fun to trade, and meet friends because of trading! I have made most of my friends from trading, because we meet up, and end up making each other laugh!

      Aj has made their website more for little kids, the age ranging from toddlers to 1st-3rd graders! You expect kids to have fun, playing on a website like lifeless zombies, getting everything they want? I don't think it works that way! They learn to type, when they are trading people. They make new friends and learn things that can help them in later life. I might sound crazy, but it's true!

      I love trading for rares, and I LLLOOOVVVEEE making friends when I do it. For instance, if you go to Julian2's den, or WootMoo's den, yes it's full of scammers, but you can meet really nice people there!

      AND GUESS WHAT? BY REDUCING THE RARES, AJ IS MAKING IT EASIER TO SCAM! When Aj takes out a rare item, scammers will have a lower range to scam things, thus going after certain people, and those people will have to hide their rares, get hacked and end up quitting.

      Storage accounts aren't always reliable! After people have their whole life ripped out from beneath them, they get depressed, and they quit Aj. I AM SERIOUS GUYS! When my long red spike color was scammed, I cried so hard! It wasn't pretty, and I ended up quitting for a year and a half!

      The creators of Aj think they're sssooooo smart, giving rares back. Well what about the rares that they can't bring back? Cami's Frog for instance. They can't! It's from the pure beta days! And Beta brick walls! They can't! Then the people who own those items are targeted!

      Aj, pull yourself together and knock some sense into your co-workers! JUST HEAR ME OUT!

    2. OMG I totally agree with you GRANNYB! When the brought hot cocoa machines back I was like "WHAT THE FUDGE??? MY COCOA MACHINE WAS MY PRIDE AND JOY!" After a while of them brining back all these old betas I got annoyed, ditched AJ for Minecraft and didnt go on for months! Now that we had to temporarily shut down the Minecraft server I'm back but its SO stupid! People apparently don't care about their rares anymore! I got a rare spiked wrist for a nature arch!! O_O Cmon AJ! Trading was sooooo much fun! A challenge! Meeting new people! I wassnt from the beta days but I love betas as much as anyone else! Leave that little pice of beta! Let people relish the accomplishment of having REAL TRUE BETAS! Don't bring back these knick knacks called "BETAS"! The only rare things left are some den betas, rare spikes, nr headdresses, fox hats, worns, cocoa machines. WHAT IS WITH YOU AJ? Why did you have to bring back betas?? Do you think that it would be fun to relive a legend? Bring back the AJ beta days?? WELL NEWS FLASH: No its not! People trade for a reason! To get new rares, meet new people, have fun! When you turn around 8 or 9 the fun of AJ is TRADING! So now you turn AJ into a little playground full of fake rares and betas? YOU CANT DO THIS ANYMORE! Don't bring back Camis! Don't bring back rare vikings! Legends can't be relived! Its NEVER the same! Keep that little slice of rarity AJ, hear us out. It might have been a good idea for you, but your losing interest. Jammers aren't happy! People are quitting, I haven't bothered renewing my membership! Just keep the beta days back there, don't bring them here.

  18. PART 2 FROM ABOVE LOL

    This all does prevent scamming, and i must admit i went through a heck load of crap for my spike collar a long way back. Alot of my betas and rares are from a long time ago rather then now. Although, i have recieved items such as; Red long spike collar, Short red wristband, Moon Dirt, A ton of monday rares and Small wooden Beta table. I love the way you have to work hard for them but it would be really nice for animal jam just to add this addon. Showing our hard work. People would still be able to get the items but it shows the hard work of the older jammers.

  25. Hello! For People who worked really hard for gazelles it must stink! At least some people have rare gazelles, they must be worth a fortune now that they're the only rare gazelles. But yesterday I was looking at somebody's trade list and there IS a difference between old and new red worns! I 'm not joking, one is darker and one is lighter. I believe the lighter one is the old worn, while the darker is the new worn. I'm not sure.. It might have been a glitch but I will try to find a dark and a light on somebody's trade list again! That would be SO cool and a God-send to all the rare people who have the old worn! -Sporty10352

  27. Hello i am emily! OH YOUR SAYING I DONT HAVE TO SAY MY NAME?

    I'm sick of all these cry babies saying "BWAA I WAZ GENNA GIT SEM NICE GAZZELS ANS SHIFT BET AJ REUINED DE PRFECT MEMENT FOR MEEEEEEE" stop. just..... STOP.

    Unless you worked for your gazzels and all im okay with that, but when you have 1000000 spikes...... tch...

    Let me make a longer paragraph...
    Look back at the beta days people you can buy whatever you please! So it was meant for fun! FOR FUN! Not rares! No not at all! You get to chat and learn new fun happy facts! Did you know flamingos are pink because of what they eat? Most people zoom past that fact! I remember in the beta days....

    People introduced themselves and actually TALKED! How rare! If the scammed they always could buy it again! Now your wondering, what does this have to do with gazzels?
    ITS ABOUT LESSENING SCAMS AND HACKS! AND THE GOOD DAYS THAT IS TRAPPED IN A PIT DUG BY RARES!

    What s this pokemon RARES GOTTA HAVE THEM ALL! no! JUST BECAUSE ONE ITEM COMES BACK DOESNT MEAN ITS THE END OF YOUR PIXELATED LIFE! ALSO DO YOU CARE FOR NON AFFORDERS AND WOULD YOU GET EVEN MORE UPSET IF IT WAS NOW FOR NON MEMBERS THE ONES, ONLY WITH A NECKLACE!!!!????

    Im sick of it all! The fussing its too much! Please dont forget the ones below you! you dont need rare to be popular! Atleast give one a chance! What if one was near to CRYING because evryone was declining her trades for gazelles? Alot of people wouldnt do shi- and say LOL WORK HARER UR OVERREACTING. Give someone a chance to try that item on as they arent caring for the rareness like alot of people do!
