With Bunny Day event drawing to a close in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. We decided to look back at the faults of the event and more.
They messed up the fishing tournament. All I caught was eggs.
Use bait - problem solved.
I swear to god this better not how we get future seasonal stuff The cherry blossom event was ruined aswell because the recipe chances were not very high to begin with and they lapped over to the Easter ones. Plus they were structured both the same where you have a CHANCE of getting a recipe card by random balloons or a washed up message in a bottle. I'm sorry but if you have a timed event like this I don't think you should be leaving things to chance, I've been stuck inside all week and only managed to get 2 cherry blossom recipes and just got the last Easter one on the day it finished. I just really hope they don't pull this shit with the Halloween and Christmas events where we are just expected to get lucky and find the recipe cards. By the time we find them those holidays will almost be over so there won't be a point in putting the furniture out.
I agree with a lot of what you said, but was the sakura event ruined? I got cherry blossom recepies both yesterday and today so they’re still obtainable.
But how can you craft without the cherry blossoms,,,
I caught a lot of them and put them in storage in case I wanted to craft any of the recepies later. The eggs didn’t stand in the way of catching the blossoms.
Yeah, 2 timed events that compete for objects (balloons) should not happen at the same time. You can probably now go back in time and hunt for the cherry blossom recipes (assuming the bunny day event was deactivated server side)
They could have had the Cherry Blossom event a week after the Bunny Day one I don't see why they thought they needed to have them running at the same time.
I enjoyed the Bunny Day event. I got all the items and had tons of eggs left over to craft into items to sell. Lots of fun and funny dialogue made it all memorable for me~
The best part about Bunny Day is selling all of that shit and emptying out my storage of worthless and ugly bunny day creations and eggs today
I don't know about you but I was mostly disappointed the final prize was not a full Zipper costume so I could haunt my family forevermore.
The developers don't know what they are doing. The event just made it more obvious. It is one of many problems.
Don’t know what they are doing? They had made a 91% Metacritic game. I’m sure they know what they are doing. These events aren’t permanent. They can always improve upon them in the future if people don’t like them.
I kind of wish they held the event in the museum or on a different island where you would find eggs hidden around and if you found them all, you would get some cool prizes. That way, it's separate from anything else going on in your game. The way it was implemented impeded progress and just went on for far too long.
I got quite into Bunny Day...for the first four days. At that point I had all the recipes and crafted everything. Then it got old, having eggs showing up everywhere, displacing everything, and villagers talking about eggs all the time. Then it messed up not one but two events. I did manage to get everything in the fishing tourney but it was a bad idea on Nintendo’s part to not at least program it so you can’t catch eggs while in tourney mode. Let’s not even talk about how I only ever got two cherry blossom recipes, and my OCD has to sit on that until next year now. Nintendo just didn’t think this series of events through, plain and simple. The payoff of all of this wasn’t all that great either, aside from seeing all the villagers dressed like cultists of the Bunny Day church all day yesterday. So they were robes all along, not dresses. Nate, and especially Curt, still looked ridiculous though. But that was it. I crafted everything new, then crafted some more purely for selling, and now I’m glad it’s over. I didn’t feel like I got an adequate reward for 12 days of pure nonsense. It was just not great all around.
Did you get the Cherry Blossom lantern? That was actually really cool and I plan on putting them all over my island. I’d be will big to give you Cherry Blossom items if that’s possible.
Atleast it was Easter that they ruined. If they ruined Halloween or Christmas I would be furious. I love any event like this...it was just poorly executed.
Oh, yeah. At least they only desecrated the day of Our Lord's resurrection. I'm with you though, that I hope they don't ruin other holidays too. Samhain and Saturnalia are also good holidays. I hope Nintendo doesn't ruin those any more than modern day humans already have.
@VivaChe If you've never heard of those holidays they're definitely worth looking up. At the very least they're neat bits of trivia.
The Bunny Day outfits were garbage. And the final “prize” blew.
