So a while ago I got a technique that worked with almost every villager where I wouldn't talk to them for like, five days after they moved in and then they'd decide to leave but Monique, who I got from a town selling turnips, seems adamant on staying. I've only spoken to her once and it's been over 10 days and still no ding noise and her walking up to me.
Has anyone else figured out the mechanics behind them moving out other than, from what I heard, after 6am each day it calculates a villager with the least amount of friendship. I'm not sure about that though because it's happened with villagers who I talk to and help every day, just not Monique.
I honestly think it's random. I've tried ignoring Flo, who I desperately want to leave since she parked her house right in front of my town hall, but she continues to stick around. Meanwhile I've had 4 villagers who I talk to every day come up to me and ask to leave. I wouldn't mind a little variation in my villagers at this point, but I keep refusing them in hopes the game will cycle around to her.
I love cats, I love every kind of cat.
I just want to hug them all, but I can't hug every cat.
I would have said that's the case because a villager I never talked to said she was going to leave and then did. But a few days ago, a villager I talk to every day, send letters to, etc.. said he was going to leave. Of course I told him to stay.
The very next day a villager I never talked to told me she was leaving.
