I did not play the GOH, I originally had a house in Fofita, which was landlocked and I really wanted some water close by and then was lucky enough to get my Vic on an island. I paid my Premium account for a year as it was much cheaper, and I use my stipend to fund the rent of my little Gatcha shop, So all and all I am satisfied with my Premium. The extra groups and the marching into any event unhindered is a total winner for me.
Yes the prims are low, and I have had to decorate really carefully. I would pay extra for some extra prims..500 prims.. I think would be a more realistic number.
