I know I'm not the only one feeling crunched for time with this event. I am not even close to completing all the tasks yet, I think they really underestimated how time consuming this would be, mainly because of the awful catch rate for the butterflies.

Do you guys think there is any chance they would extend the safari event?

No because I think Nintendo is wanting players to use their Leaf Tickets.  I feel your lain in not going to be able to complete this event.

No.

There was actually some fine print in one of the latest updates that they 'tweaked' the second half of the event (these stupid white and gold winters) as part of the update. So they finalized whatever decision they made at that time (IMO of course).

This seems like their first attempt to practically force you to use tickets (and in ridiculous quantities for each butterfly - IMO again) to '100%' something in this game. If they choose to only do this once in a while, I am cool with it. If they are trying to start a trend with this? I'll be disappointed.

I really do feel they are "forcing" you to use the leaf tickets just to get some currency out of the game and encourage people to spend real money, which is just lame.

There is zero other reason for the catch rate to be so abysmal. I literally wake up at night just to plant white dahlias in the hopes that i might catch ONE or TWO of the eight or so butterflies that spawn when the flowers bloom...

I agree. If you harvest 2 full fields at least twice a day you should be able to complete an event on a game like this. I do really like the timed trials PC brings usually. I think they make Animal Crossing a little bit faster and a little bit more exciting. And honestly, the game throws so many leaf tickets at you for free I wouldn't even mind if you had to use some. SOME being the point. Charge maybe one ticket for a white, two for a gold or something similar. But 10?! That's insane.

What else annoys me is they aren't even offering an 'event ticket' package for this. Would it kill them to add a discounted ticket pack and then maybe like 5 white and 5 gold butterflies? Or some fertilizer? Or even some stinkin' white flowers?

Apparently.

And this is coming from someone who did buy one of their package deals for like 3 bucks. I don't even know what it was now TBH - just to let Nintendo know I appreciated the game (ironically because there wasn't a paywall) and such.

So yeah, I kind of hope they don't make as much off the regular priced ticket purchases as they thought they would to turn down their ego a tad...

I noticed that in order to collect 100% of the Rover items you will need to catch all 40 of the white but just 20 of the gold winter butterflies. 30 gold gets you a double of the Rover mug which I would really like because it’s cute and I would love to have both mugs sitting out but not necessary. 40 gold butterflies gets you 40 leaf tickets, so saving the leaf tickets and not wasting them catching those last 10 golds seems better.

I agree. It seems odd to me to offer the mug twice instead of offering a 'new' item instead. Unless you are of the mindset that you are (you really like it so you want the second one too) most people are going to stop using leaf tickets (or in Nintendo's eyes stop buying them) once they finish the previous goal.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this game. As I mentioned, I think it's so fun I went out of my way to throw them some money (even though I didn't need the tickets/items at all) which is very rare for me. But? Some of the decisions they make in this game are flat out weird. From a gameplay stance sure, but even from a monetary stance. Charging the amount of leaf tickets you get each level you gain for a single butterfly is SO steep IMO. But then you go and duplicate a prize and then offer a final prize that in no way is worth you actually completing it?



It just doesn't make any sense to me. lol

yeah this event is a rip-off

if they extended it a week the terrible catch rate would be more justifiable

I don't have a screenshot, but I just had 10 flowers bloom, two butterflies spawn, and caught neither

I didn't realize at first that it was 10 tickets for EACH guaranteed catch. if it was 10 tickets for the garden, or 1/butterfly, I'd gladly spend it on that, but 10/butterfly is insane.

I didn't think I'd be feeling the crunch on this event, but with two days left, 40 butterflies short, and full work shifts both days so I can't check in, it looks like I won't be finishing this event. a real shame bc that rocking chair is probably the item I want the most.

If you guys haven't read or tried my new catch method, it just *might* be worth giving it a try. I was doing full field catches yielding 0 catches too. I also tried going one by one but also managed to walk away with zilch from full fields.

The only thing that has (slightly) worked for me is to catch 3-4 at a time. No more, no less. And ideally it's best to have at least one of both colors in one batch. Doing this I have around a 1-in-4 catch rate. I realize that's still incredibly lousy but at least I was able to get the stupid mug (the only thing I really wanted) doing it this way. There's no way I'll get the second mug or 40X leaf tickets for sure for example, but I finally can share some butterflies back to all my friends who have so generously kept donating them to me.



ETA: ^ Yes! I first read on here people complaining that the ticket cost was ridiculous and when I went in my game and 'saw' (AKA thought) that it only cost 10 for the whole kit and caboodle I thought to myself, 'Eh, that's not that bad. I'll just make sure I fill up all my fields with 'flies first.'. But it was only until I was about to catch them all with leaf tickets I saw the total and was like, 'OHHHH...I get them now.' Haha.

I am sorry you won't get the rocking chair though. I'd be super mad if there was an item I wanted so bad in this event too.



Perhaps a 'real' trade system is in the works and you'll get one sooner than later!

I agree with everyone’s opinion and bad luck, This second part is too short, and the number of tickets needed for just one butterfly is pathetic and unfair! I don’t have any hope of getting all the tasks.

Just make sure you trade in all your harvests before the end of the game. At least you can get a lot of essences for flowers. I’ve been concentrating more on that, now.

I managed to get the counter last night and then the second Rover mug this morning. Now I am 4 golden 'flies away from the leaf tickets, so I am not sure if I'll manage to finish that one. But I am not complaining. After so many full fields and getting absolutely none of the 'flies, I managed a technique that worked so much better (for me at least) to where I ended up with every item when I was at a point where the first mug even seemed unattainable. Sometime yesterday I finished all the white butterfly tasks which blew my mind.

I am also such a hypocrite because I said I didn't like his furniture. Now I am using his screens and his rocking chair in my 'natural' amenity section. I put one mug in my other section, but I think I'll take it out and put both mugs in my camper (AKA my holder of like 25 zodiac dogs - I love them so much, don't judge me! lol). I don't know what to do with the table or bar or carpet though.

However, I do wish they offered more essences for the flower exchange. All I can do now with them is make several planters that I'll hardly ever use.

-----

Here's to hoping you guys have some super special luck tomorrow!

I am down to needing one more golden butterfly for my second mug so I have some hope, but I know I won't get my 40 tickets and I have been waking up at night just to play this game. Still not sure I'll get my second mug, there is no guarantee a golden butterfly will spawn or that I will catch it if it does
