Does anyone spend real money on the app??  I have before but it's honestly expensive to be dropping like $20 to get gatcha fortune cookies...  And on a personal level,  I feel guilty that I can't play as much as other people and I can't earn enough tickets or money to keep up with the game.. What are ya'lls opinions?  What has been worth spending real cash for u guys??

For reals I want the pave stage and the Diana fairy cookies and the new fairy terrain!!  But I just got back into the app after a break and all my leaf tickets weren't transferred when I switched from an iPhone to Samsung so I'm feeling super inadequate

I have; more towards the first half of the game. I would always buy when they either were discounted and/or if they offered a bonus I liked. I never went too crazy. I usually bought the $1 package with the occasional $4 package sprinkled in between. I'd say in all I spent around $20-$30. Even though the LTs are incredibly expensive for what you get, I was doing it as a thanks to the developers for putting out a true free to play game. Like Marion, I also got a few iTunes gift cards (small amounts, not like $100 or anything lol) and used them to buy LTs as well.

But then came the greed and when that came in I walked out as far as paying for the game any longer. I don't have any regrets because this game is literally still my go to game right now. It's so good I feel like this could have been released on a console TBH. I am dealing with some chronic illnesses at the moment and this is the only 'videogame' I have been playing all year so far because I can't concentrate well enough to play anything else. This game is so easy and relaxing that it's perfect for me right now. So yeah, I would pay that $30 again if I had to - even if I am harshly critical of it at the moment.

Personally, I have never used the LTs I bought on fortune cookies. To me that's a waste and if I didn't get every single item I wanted I would feel ripped off. I would be thinking about how I could have bought something that I was guaranteed to enjoy like terrain or NPCs etc.

That's really good logic.  I started that way but over time I've become more willing to use real money because one of my favorite things about the animal crossing franchise has been collecting items in game.  And I struggle with time management!!

I'm so happy to hear you're having such a great time with the game honestly.  Its a really relaxing game and its great that you can use it to relax and rest like that.  Hope you're having a fun week with the game!  Lmk if you wanna exchange codes and I can give you festivibees you guys!

I spent a little money when I was playing PC, I have done on quite a few app games I've played (Design Home, Hobbit:Kingdoms of Middle Earth) I usually go for the basic £2.99/£1.99 packs - to me it's no different   than playing an arcade game or buying a coffee. I feel like if I'm enjoying it, it's my money and I'm not going crazy spendwise then why not

I’m honestly more willing to spend real money when there is a sale on,  but we haven’t even gotten a holiday sale from them.  I’m not totally surprised by this, because Nintendo itself rarely does a good sale.

I spent money when the Splatoon came out to impress my kids & to lure them back to the game, but it backfired.... however I liked the items so no biggie.

Yay! This community is so great that even if you/I say only share a critter or two with one person, in the end it will come back to every single person in our 'group'. So don't worry if you don't water my flowers, help me to the quarry, or share critters with me for days at a time. I am completely fine with that personally (of course I can only speak for myself) regardless of how 'extra' I have been as of late on these threads. Just don't wipe out my MB or buy like 50 lemons at a time and we'll be cool; or I'll...*shakes old lady cane*!



You will help more people than you think! I just like to point this out to some people who get stressed when they think about how many people they need to help, or making sure they share 5 critters with someone because they shared 5 critters with you. Everything done for one person almost always counts towards helping tons more. Most of us care less about giving 3 critters and expecting exactly 3 or more back. We tend to view things in a broader spectrum where we know eventually you or I will help down the future so everything will balance itself out that way as it's more about the thought than the act; if that makes sense.

I know I am not speaking for everyone here, but this is just the general vibe I personally have witnessed with friends I have made through this forum versus other forums which I LOVE.



+-----+

This was kind of meant to be a PSA for any and everyone adding new friends from here; it just fit perfectly in regards to your comment. Heh.

We do absolutely deserve more LT deals for how inflated the prices are when you look at the conversion of dollars/other currency to LTs. It's pretty bad, even compared to other P2P games IMO.

I can't even remember the last time we were even offered discounted LTs but I would be a lot more tempted to buy more if they would put them on sale occasionally. If I remember correctly I bought all 3 or 4 (I can't remember exactly) of the sale packages until they stopped me from buying more.

As it stands now I need (AKA I will get for sure before it's gone) all three fairy terrains, the auroa sky, and surprisingly I am going to buy at least a 5 pack of the new fairy cookie (dying for the wings which means I won't get them lol). Once I do this I will have roughly 25 LTs left. And I am half and half about getting Pave's stage. I love Peacocks (I grew up with them flying in to our backyard over the fence lol) and he cracks me up BUT...he's incredibly hard to find a place where he fits in/matches. And with my OCD this could mean I might never use him. I was just looking today and I don't even know if I think he matches with the fairy décor.



If anyone has him in their camp please let me know so I can come visit. Convince me to spend 350 LTs on the dude!



Sorry for the OT bits and bobs there...

ETA: Also sorry for the DP there. My brain isn't cooperating very well tonight it would seem.

That's totally ok! Sometimes a rant about participation and how supportive we all are to each other is really beneficial. Because I know I just seen a tweet the other day where multiple people were mad that people were giving them bees that they didn't need in the second phase of the event, even tho the game tells you now what each person still needs-- and that hurt my feelings because my mom is like in her 50's playing animal crossing with me, and she doesn't know how that works. but she means well. and like, what about young kids or confused new players??? So, NO STRESS to all my new pocket camp friends. I'm totally laid back and ill try to hook every one up

I have definitely spent (too much) real money on leaf tickets. If I see something I REALLY want, it is hard for me to not click that button and buy. I'm embarrassed at how much I've spent honestly, but I guess we all have our vices, right? This is one of the few games I play as well, so once in a while it's fun to splurge.

FWIW, I have a few people on my FL that do the same things that others do and they stay on my FL while others get banned. Sadly, I know I haven't perfected the science of who stays and who goes - but I think I do a decent job. I think I can usually tell the difference between people who are doing 'annoying' things simply because they are just in the 'share share share' mentality versus those who are doing it with nefarious intentions. People who just like to help others will help in other ways too. These users with bad intentions tend to only focus on what they can gain; so helping in the quarry or watering flowers isn't of use to them so they don't bother. I notice they share like 16 level one critters (when you have level 2 flowers and clearly need level 2 critters) in the hopes that people will share back level two critters with them because that's what they need. And some people do give them a couple of level two bugs which only increases this type of behavior.

Anyhow, TL;DR I don't block someone because of one behavior or one aspect of their gameplay I don't agree with. It's definitely not a black and white matter and I feel like *most* decent players do give a little wiggle room when it comes to other users who truly are clueless about some aspects of gameplay.

calvin994:

There's no need to be embarrassed by it IMO! It's your hobby and you should use your hobby 'budget' any way you see fit. As long as you're not taking the money from rent, school, utilities, food etc. there's nothing wrong with it. I say the last part because while working for Neopets I saw several users who were addicted to spending their money on virtual items to the point where they dropped out of school, had their children taken away from them, ate only ramen so they could spend more on Neo, lost their jobs for stealing, and lost their marriages and homes and cars; all over a virtual items which have no true value.

But yeah, as long as you have it to spend and realize you won't get it back you do you!

My birthday is coming up and I have already received a couple iTunes GCs. My family probably thinks I'll use it to buy music and other media but nope! It's all going towards LTs methinks!

Thank you, Andrea! I've definitely reigned myself in lately, but let me tell you, I REALLY wanted Goldie's Library on Wheels. Eventually got it, but let's just say it cost me more than a few lattes to get it.

Yes, treat yourself to some LTs! That's actually a great idea. My birthday is in April, so I'm definitely going to add iTunes GCs to my wish list.

I'll admit I do so.

When it comes to rare items, I'm in.
However, I have just given up on the leaf ticket fortune cookies, unless they show up for sale in place of the Bells-only fortune cookies.


I just have to remember to crunch some numbers before splurging.

I've definitely spent money on this game.  I don't know how much, but probably around $50.  I bought the cheaper launch packs and some of the cheaper packs here and there.  They did have a sale of sorts around the holidays - they offered like 800 additional LTs to the $20 pack, so I decided to buy it.

I also bought some of the $1 holiday packs (the ones that come with 10 extra LTs and the seasonal event item like the snowballs).  You were limited to 5, but they gave you more LTs than the regular $1 packs.  In fact, I think they have them for this current seasonal event, too.

I've not purchased any of the terrain with LTs, but there is some that I do like.  I've bought a few FCs with LTs here and there, and I did buy a 5-pack of the reissued Rosie cookies hoping for the yellow dress and beret, which I did get (actually, I think I had to buy 2 5-packs).  I also bought a 5-pack of Fauna's cookie, since I really wanted the dress and hat from that, which I got.

I didn't get the skirt from Goldie's cookie (I got the other items I wanted), but I was able to buy that with a stamp card.  I've only gotten 3 of Gladys' cookie for Bells, so I'll probably buy a 5-pack of that before it's gone, as all I've gotten is the tree and two of the haoris (which are male).

I'm sure I'll buy some of Diana's cookies if I don't get anything I want from the free ones.  I only average about 2 special cookies each week, and with what 6 different cookies out there, it's rare to even get a cookie that you want.  I only ended up with 2 dazzling duo cookies for sale for Bells, and I think we got a free one from an event.  Gladys' cookies haven't been given away in any event, unfortunately.

BTW Andrea - it looks like you got your wings, plus the dress and flower crown.  That's what it looks like in my friends list, anyway.  If so, congrats!

I have mostly used LTs when I'm getting impatient to finish a gardening event and on the occasional terrain, but mostly on FCs. If they would do something about the FC duplicates, that would certainly help. (Help us anyway...) The FC duplicates is why I really wish they would let us list furniture and/or clothing items in our MB or by some other method.  As I mentioned earlier, I went a little nuts with the Goldie's FCs and ended up with several of the skirts. Don't even get me started on all the hydrangea hats I got with Lily's FCs before I finally got a second hydrangea hedge.

I would love to be able to list duplicate FC items in the market box.
It took me months just to get the Sapling Clock to show up, and that was the last item I needed to 100% all three Bells-only fortune cookies.


I didn't get a single gaming cookie last year. My fault for not being careful.

I’ve spent money on Pocket Camp before to be honest. Most was for getting the Nintendo items in the Hopper’s fortune cookie (even though I’m missing a few). Spent it once on the Mario Scavanger Hunt as well. Might spend again during the upcoming Mario fishing tournament because I NEED ALL THE MARIO ITEMS!

When it comes to getting all video game furniture in AC (Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, e.t.c), I have to get all of them or at least majority and place in my furniture catalog. Some Mario and Pokémon items are at my campsite in Pocket Camp already.

Only ones I’ve spent are the 0.99 ones and sometimes the 4.99 ones. All in all I’d say I put more than $30 on the game.
