Yeah, I got them from villager requests. I’m still getting blue and red as well (more frequently, actually), but white is thrown in there. First round of requests I did, I got 2 from each plus 1 from a campsite request; second time I only got 5 total. I’m slightly frustrated so far, they seem hard to get and 150 flowers will get you all the essence rewards, so if we had a week (and we honestly have less, lol), we’d need to harvest 21 per day, not to mention actually trying to catch enough flies.

Edit; sharing the new butterflies seems to yield white seeds as well, which is something.. if you can manage to catch them.

I have been sharing the new butterflies to help people and to get the white dahlia seeds. Not a single person has shared back yet, i feel like this second half will be a lot harder.

Yeah, I harvested 3 full fields of white flowers and failed to catch a single new butterfly. I refuse to spend leaf tickets (plus the amount they ask for each butterfly is ridiculous) for this site event. So please don't share any with me if you want some back!

This catch rate and a week given is ridiculous. I think this is the first instance where unless you play it 24/7 you just might have to use/buy tickets to fully complete it.

^ That makes me really nervous because I know for a fact that I don't have that kind of time. I'm lucky if I can get 3-4 rounds of requests a day, and that's not accounting for the 4 hours the flowers take. I don't want to not complete it, but at the same time.. I don't want to blow all my leaf tickets.

I come bearing better (albeit odd) news!

My last full fields batch bloomed just now and guess what?

I caught SIX white butterflies and SIX gold. What the heck game? Either Nintendo upped the catch rate, I had horrible luck today, or I just got lucky with this last batch.

Either way there is hope (and cool clothes to craft)!

Yeah, I think I might get about all the winter rewards, but maybe only one or two of the gold winter ones. To be honest, I am not that fussed because I find most of the Rover items to be a bit...ugly.



I am glad his hood and shirt were easy to get because those are my favorites out of everything.

Once I got over my OCD-like need to 100% everything just for the sake of it I am good now. I think the bringing out the clothes crafting helped me get over it too. I was more excited for that. Heh. Also, for some reason I was thinking I would need the butterflies to collect the potted planter and essences until today when I had my (oh duh!) moment realizing I just needed the flowers for that. OK Nintendo...I am on good terms with you again. Haha.

But I don't blame you for using tickets if you like his furniture or want to 100% like I did. It's still a rip-off the amount they charge you for each butterfly - but what are you going to do? At least you can re-coup 40 tickets if you finish everything. It's something! lol

I am sure you're glad the clothes crafting brings ticket rewards as well?

ETA: Can you do anything with the offensive (and very off-topic) post on this forum? I don't know who does/can do what; but I have reported it twice and it's been over 2 days now and it's still there. I feel like this board isn't being moderated or something weird is up with the reporting system.

Eh now I just want more clothing options. ALSO I hate these new butterflies cause I can never catch them and I want the Rover mug.

(P.S. As I am not a moderator I cannot, but I will see what I can do. Thank you. )

Oh, me too.

I'll have all these made in a jiffy. It'll be exciting when I can get rid of some of my beautiful camper's perfectly UGLY clothes and replace them with even these limited options too.



ETA: Have you tried changing up your capture method? I have no idea if this works or it just seems like it does for me, but if I 'capture all' and only select 3-4 at a time I seem to have a higher catch rate then if I do them all, or one by one. Also, one white and two golds work better than all 3 white or all 3 gold. Who knows.

Thanks for looking in to it!

I'm having the same problems with catching white and gold butterfly's myself.  I have lots of them showing up on my flowers but the ratio to catching them is slim to none.  I had five white butterfly's and one gold and I wasn't able to catch a single one.  Really BITES!

And how annoying is it when your character makes the "Oh, yes. Got 'em!" pose and then the next screen comes up and shows you in fact didn't catch anything. Enraging!

How far off (how many white ‘flies do you still need) are you from the mug? If you still hold out
some hope I could give you one or two white ‘flies from my stash of ones I have caught myself (meaning NOT the ones given to me - I always give back what I get from those right back to whoever sent me them -
added just in case one of my friends happens to see this and might accidentally take it the wrong way).

Granted it’s not much of a stash but the closer to the event ending the more steady my catch
rates hold at about 4-1. So hopefully I can add two or so in the next 2 days.

I actually just got my first 3 for 3 with a friend’s kind donation! I am sure she’s going to be shocked as much as I was to do it, for her to see she actually got her donation back in full for once!

So there still is hope. Honestly. I wouldn’t get my hopes up (for example if you are on the first task
I wouldn’t hold out hope for getting the bar let’s say. But if you only need to complete one or so until
the reward you want will be given I would keep going as strong as you can (have time to play) until
the fat lady sings.

Again, if you’re not using the technique I started to actually have success with, I would try it; at
least a few times. It’s posted all around here if you’re curious. I still have went zero for three. So
I don’t pretend it’s a solution to the unfair catch rate by any means. But at least I am catching something
right? It at least got me that stupid (but oh so cute) mug.

And as much as I hate to say this...towards the last hours on Sunday and you are still not quite there but SO close...if it were me and I liked the item enough there’s no shame in using a few (personally my limit would be 50 or under) leaf tickets at that point. If you have them saved up or choose/can afford/think it’s worth it. If I would have loved the stuff and didn’t have something by the end, I would throw 100 or so tickets at this event as a whole personally. I think that much (but absolutely nothing more) is a decent/fair investment  for a single event.

OT: But of course we all value things differently and if you don’t have them saved up and can’t or don’t want to use your own money to buy them I completely support that stance as well. I have seen one of my friends blow all but $10 of her paycheck one month because she spent it all on some game (Candychrush perhaps? I don’t play the game so I don’t remember the name) and that was ridiculous and sad. I loaned her money to pay rent and feed herself and her pets (to exist basically) but I told her if she did that again I wouldn’t be there to catch her fall. I was mad at her for weeks after too lol. I also worked at Neopets and you wouldn’t believe the amount of money (or the percentage of their income to be exact) some people throw in to NC. We’re talking amounts you could buy a used car with. And their grand total? Rent for over a year or two...in Southern California keep in mind. It was mind blowing to me.

ETA: Sorry for the jacked up formatting. I am on my phone and it’s not working right, right now for some reason.

Assuming I catch them (LOL) I need 26 white butterflies for the mug

If anyone feels generous my code is 53920809731

I am very slow at rounding up white flower seeds so that is also my problem.

Aww, sorry to hear that you need so many.

Having full fields (with a few empty blooms for people to drop 'flies off) is mandatory at this point. You practically need to do animal requests almost every cycle until you manage to start catching enough so you can share and get more seeds that way as well. It's SO time consuming.

I suggest everyone leave feedback on this event if they didn't enjoy it or even a certain aspect of it. Hopefully this is just a mistake on Nintendo's end or enough people complain to let them know they have a mistake on their hands so that the next event will be enjoyable for all.

10 butterflies in my field...caught one, and of course not the gold one.

I hope Nintendo learns from the player frustration of this event. This is the kind of thing that will make many players give up on a game and move on to something else.

I love Animal Crossing, always have and this won't make me quit playing but it does lower my opinion of Nintendo a bit.
