So the campers want our flowers now. This is taking way too much of my time. I don’t have time to devote to growing a supply of flowers now. I’m done with the game. I prefer the old style play-as-you-like AC games.

Oh nice, an animated graphic! My Bob is 13 points away from level 20, can't wait.

When I first started up the game, there were two balloons with presents attached floating on the map. When I popped them, I received some building materials.

The campers want our flowers?

I am still sick with the flu but I wanted to check in on how people liked/disliked the additions.

So far I am really pleased with the changes. Whoever is in charge of this app is doing a pretty darn good job of listening to its players AND implementing those changes if possible. For example, the mass-send for the quarry is so useful.

I'll start with my cons:

- Why do all the flowers have to shine now? It takes longer for the garden to load (we're only talking a few seconds here but still...) as well.

- I don't like the frequency of how often the villagers will ask me for flowers. The two new cut scenes are adorable, don't get me wrong. But I am still SO far away from collecting all the flower rewards even while I am fully dedicated to it. Now they want to take MORE away? Poo. I can't remember if anyone asked me for a hybrid - if that's the case I flat out hate this. If not, it's annoying but I can work with it.

And my pros are...everything else. I couldn't wait for this update JUST so I could dress Butch up like an old man. His mesh for headgear is pretty bad, but I have hope one day they'll re-do it. The slot machine gives me a reason to even go to OK more than like one time a month, and it'll give me something to do when I run out of everything else to do. And with my 1.5K in friendship powder I'll be able to keep it going for a while.

In total:

A- overall - which isn't too shabby!

-----

PS: For those who find the flower request too much, just remember it's asked for as the last request, which means you still get 3 level points per encounter. Naturally it will take you a bit longer to level up but it's not game breaking or worth quitting the game over. IMHO of course. It does slow you down from getting the flower rewards; but if you aren't doing anything with the flowers at all it shouldn't matter should it? I guess I don't understand the magnitude of having to grow a field of flowers once a day or even every other day etc.. You're already doing 'daily' tasks anyway to fulfill requests aren't you?

ETA: If you haven't, try dressing up one of your campers in the same outfit as you. It's pretty funny.

There are also 10 new rugs that you can craft. I can't remember having seen them yesterday right after the update, so they may have been unlocked this morning.

Awesome!

I like just being surprised with new items. But on the other hand, I wish they would announce every
little thing they update as to keep old players playing more and grabbing up new players with how often
they add new things to the game.

During this little update you mentioned, did they get rid of campers asking for flowers? Before I went to
bed they were still asking; but (thanks to insomnia lol) this round just now of requests didn’t have a
single flower request. If so, that did not live long at all.

"During this little update you mentioned"
I wasn't talking about another update. Yesterday's update contains much more than what we see right now, for instance the five new villagers aren't available yet, and neither are the campground changes, although these things are already in the data. They get unlocked at some point in time, and I wondered whether the rugs were unlocked this morning, or whether I had missed them yesterday and they were available right from after the update.

I had a request for a red tulip this morning. I happened to have a few and I gave one to Stitches, who started talking about bouquets, which resulted in one of those little videos after which you receive bonus materials.

I think flower requests are here to stay because I can't imagine Nintendo would add them, including a cut scene, for just one day. Nobody has to fulfil them, you can skip them or just not do them.

"I don’t want to have to go to Shovelstrike Quarry every five minute for flowers.."
Can you get flowers at Shovelstrike Quarry?

AnnetteSR - Oh, I didn't mean it like that. I guess I could just call them 'mini-updates' or 'next part of the update' etc. To me if I see something new (even if it's already downloaded data on my phone and simply just released by date and time) I just call it an update because it's 'new' to me.

Though I still don't get what happened with the flower requests. I have done about 12 full requests since my last post and no one has asked me for a single bloom again. And even if the Valentine's day theory is correct, it was still Valentine's day (campers were still talking about it) during those 12 full requests. And yet some people are saying they're still being asked for flowers - so I don't have a clue as to what's going on with that. I guess it could be a glitch on my end but...I'm certainly not complaining, nor reporting. I'll ride this wave as long as I possibly can. Heh. I didn't think they would take the requests fully out because of the two new cut scenes. I just figured they changed (IMO balanced) the rate for the better. Like I said, I found it annoying finishing every request encounter with one of only two cut scenes. But I am not tossing my phone in the garbage over it either.

I don't think the flower requests are going to be this frequent forever. they probably just have them set as a guaranteed final request for now because they're new, but I bet they'll turn into regular requests later (or possibly rare final requests, like the snapper, bass and horned dynastid)

either way I'm a bit annoyed about it, since it throws a wrench into my hybrid breeding plans. now I have to make sure I always have some flowers on hand instead of cross-pollinating all of them right away. not the end of the world, but kind of annoying.

as for everything else in the update, it is A+

I thought the same as I joined the game late. But now that I have hosted everyone I really like how fast they release a new group.

You’ll get there even if it seems near impossible right now!

I already wooed Dotty. And I like the new items to craft. We got even more rugs/floors!

So, since it's a new day now (and not Valentine's day of course) I am curious. Are you guys still getting flower requests?

I still haven't had anyone request a bloom since Tuesday night. The 'change' seemed to come about around the same time as the first batch of new items to craft trickled in. (I'd call it the second to last update with tonight's/early tomorrow's new animals and new goods to craft being the latest. But I feel like I need to add a disclaimer about what I consider an 'update' now.) But whatever you want to call it...I haven't had anyone request a flower in 12 hours. Since I did find the idea a tad annoying, I can't say I am upset about this; except for the fact that the cut scenes were adorable...the first 6 times in a row or so and I would like them back at some point. Obviously, since they went through the trouble of creating our first new cut scenes since launch (I came in late so I should say I am only speaking about my game) I know they're here to stay unless there is a massive upset and it leads to them losing money or something. I just want the ratio to balance itself. And while they're at it I wouldn't mind a balance of resources so that I am not needing to spend all my Nintendo points on paper and preserves.



-----

Overall I think they're doing an awesome job trying to cater to every type of player especially when you remember this is a 100% free app. That in itself is amazing IMO. They're giving us more activities like the slot machine for people like me who often want to keep playing but there's nothing left to do for a couple of hours. But it's optional. And except for the flower events so far, you can absolutely play at your own pace. Even if you only want to spend 10 minutes every 3 days or something, you will still be able to hit all the same goals as those players (like myself) who play a lot more. I can't really see anything you won't be able to get. You'll just get it slower naturally.

I don't see why more people on this site aren't playing and absolutely loving this game just as much as all the past AC games. Especially since it's free. There were always those people who wanted AC to move at a faster pace when they were in the mood to play all day etc. at times (I really, really craved the option for days when I was sick in bed with little else to do for example. Or forced to kill time like at jury duty lol). And this game does that. AND, it doesn't sacrifice all the 'play as much or as little you want' pace while doing so. Of course there are the obvious answers like someone can't afford a phone that is compatible with this game etc. but I am not talking about those types of reasons as we all know that makes perfect sense (sadly).



I am curious as to what are your opinions about this are. Am I missing something that you find obvious? Such as why this game wouldn't be just as fun as past AC titles etc.

Ugh. Of course my edit time just ran out on my last post...

(Sorry for 3 posts in a row!)

But I have a question. I was trying to raise Octavian to level 7 because I needed a few hip essences and he also gives out paper - so he was kind of perfect for me right now. But after using 3 request tickets on him, he wouldn't let me use a fourth.

Was that always a thing and I just happened to not use 3+ tickets at once?

TIA!

You could never use more that three request tickets before. I'm not sure, but I think this is per day. I've used three tickets and on a next cycle summoned the animal with a Calling Card, expecting to be able to use three more Request tickets. But no.

I can do double posts as well!

Despite the limit of three calling cards per day, all is not lost. The new animals will visit multiple times per day! Please read this thread for more info. I can comfirm that this game mechanic still works the same, because the cycle changed and I had the four new animals of the second cycle again. If I've done my calculations correctly and Octavian is in the first of the two cycles that give new animals, you'd need to use two calling cards and do his requests at all four opportunities, and he'll be at level 7 at the end of the day.

Don't forget the send all new villagers home before each cycle change and invite them back straight after!

I had one flower request out of all the request today, from Dotty for a yellow pansy. Gladly I had some yellow pansies.

for those of you who aren't getting flower requests as often anymore, how many rounds of requests have you done? I've been busy and have only had time to do three rounds of requests, so I'm still getting flower requests from everyone every time. I'm looking forward to that not being the case soon

AnnetteSR - Thank you for your clarification on the request situation! It's rather odd they'd choose to cap it. It's not like people can abuse them since they control how many we get essentially. And it's not even like people could buy (RL money) more.

But yeah, I knew I'd see them tons today again but I was simply bored and thought I'd spam him for his paper along with his affection then and there.



After today I only need to craft one more item and I'll have invited all the new campers already - in case you needed proof of my boredom. Heh. That worked out well for me actually because I had completely forgot the shard event started this morning so I can focus on just that if I want to.

Chiyoko - On Wednesday I did at least 36+ requests. I did 36 because I did 3 rounds that day. But in addition I used several request cards so I don't know how many more I did. On Thursday I did 36 exactly. And no one has asked for a single bloom in any of those. The only odd thing I noticed was on a few occasions I got asked for a single 'rare' item on the second request instead of as the last request. But when that happened the third request was for common items; so it's like they just switched up the order.

-----

This is another 'Was that just in my head?' questions for which I am sorry to burden you all with (lol), but is it just me or can you not enter the quarry now as many times as you could before this update? I mean by using friends. It seems I can only get in twice in 24 hours where as before I swear I could get in at least 3 times. Am I just imagining that?
