Well, first of all: One thing is diamonds and another thing is the items in the diamond shop. As far as I know, no one minds the diamonds as a currency, its just that some people don´t like it that some rares have been resold.
I think it is good that jammers can now have the items they´ve always wanted. Personally I spent my diamonds in a weather cloud. But it is true that lots of items have lost quite a bit of their rarity. Take giant lions, for example. At my den I have a collection of them, all 10 colors. I traded lots of items for the lions (But I am very happy with the result :D) So now my lion collection isn´t as valuable as it was on monday, for example.
Look: A white giant lion bought at the diamond shop at the left (picture credit to snowyclaw) and my white giant lion at the right. Mine has a rare plaque so that shows it is from the member gift, but that is the only difference. If you want a lion because it looks cool, not because of its rarity, you'll just think of them as items of the same rarity.
So what? By taking lions back to the shop, AJHQ hasn´t taken my lion collection away. It still looks the same, and it will be there unless I decide I don´t want it there and take it of.
So, in my opinion, it isn´t that horrible that they are back. People that had them before they came out still have them, and people that didn´t have them now have an opportunity to put an item they like in their dens.
Now, I have talked about my opinion, but it is not the only opinion out there. Other opinions are:
·The jammers who don´t like the diamond store.
This jammer (penarella) doesn´t like the diamond store because of the rares it resolds. Probably that jammer had the rares before they came out and doesn´t like how they lost rarity.
·The jammers who think its 50-50
This jammer (TheSupremeOverLord) says its bad because it resells rares, but it is good because people make good trades for them.
·The jammers who love it
This jammer (MouseChees) likes the diamond update.
·The jammers who don´t like it.
This jammer (Ainoa18) doesn´t like the new diamonds. He also says that it isn´t necessary to make such a fuss about it (lol) and that there should be more non member things.
So, those are in total 5 different opinions, but there are far, far more. Feel free to comment with yours!
