Bell Currency will bring you a lot of places Animal Crossing: New Horizons. You can expand and renovate the house, spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy digital fashion products from Able sisters (with impunity), and even turn the entire island into your every whim. But deciding who lives there is usually something you cannot afford to pay, at least not from the game itself.
But in one called Bell treePlayers are auctioning their villagers and bidding tens of millions of bells for their favorites. The process is very simple: Once the NPCs are "packed in a box", that is, packing and leaving, tourists can talk to them and ask them to move to their island. However, since this is one of the very few ways to get the precise neighbors you want in heaven, the competition is fierce and the prices of popular characters are skyrocketing.
A forum user attracted by Ryuchii recently purchased the deer villager Beau for $ 10 million. They explained to me: "In New Leaf, I am really getting closer to him." "He moved into my town at will, and since then has nothing, he has never really asked to move out. Since then , I have been attached to him. "
This is a common reasoning among bidders. Players still keep in touch with their neighbors in the previous Animal Crossing game, but there is no easy way to ensure that when you jump to the sequel, they will accompany you and prompt them to switch to online trading. Ryuchii said: "Whether you are a fan of the villagers or not, for the villagers who just started, they will stick to it."
In a sense, fortunately for Longjingjing, Bo has been hovering in their small town for all these years. According to a chart provided by some forum users, he is a very popular villager, which probably pushed up his price.
Villager Rank List
The hierarchical list was created by voting by users in the forum and related Reddit and Facebook groups, and each participant was asked to select the top ten from hundreds of possible villagers. But one of the creators (walking with Mairen on the forum) said that everyone still has love. They wrote: "One thing I found very sweet is that there is at least one person there who loves every villager." "When trading villagers start to rise here, remember this. You never know if anyone around you absolutely likes it Adopt the villagers you want to relocate, even if they are the bottom people. "
The artist of this picture was taken by Shootxtar on the Bell Tree forum. After suggesting that they do some more aesthetic work than a simple list, they are invited to provide help (although the latter can still be found on the forum for easy search). They explained: "I mentioned that I can make graphics in Photoshop (and was invited to join the group to become four of us)." "Three represent data, I represent graphics."
Thousands of people responded, and clearing the votes was an important task. Shootingxtar said that they also spent about six hours to organize these elves. They added: "We will still update it, but at least I don't have to do the initial work again because I can move their sprites."
The purpose of the ranking list is not to make anyone feel sad about the villagers they like (although if you ask me, my son Bam is not very popular, it is a tragedy). Instead, its creators are designed to let players know the price they should pay if they want to participate in a transaction.
Ryuchii thinks this is necessary to some extent, because some bad actors try to use the trade economy for evil purposes. They said: "Like all good things, there is a small disadvantage." "I learned to ask in advance instead of (just trust) promises." For example, users sometimes trade in forum-specific currencies, and The currency may only be exchanged in advance by the payee to realize that the moving villagers simply do not exist.
But Ryuchii emphasized that the community is "very good overall." They also said that if you are smart, you can make a lot of money. According to the hierarchical list, the most popular islander is the bailiff, a smug cotton candy squirrel. Ryuchii snapped up his 10 Nook Miles tickets (another popular currency, usually replacing Bells in these industries), accounting for only a fraction of the "hundreds" he usually spends.
With the development of the new horizon economy, things may become deeper than avoiding being cheated and trying to bargain. Ryuchii explained that they understand the ins and outs of the villagers ’trade because they have operated a“ hometown of bicycles ”in New Leaf for about five years. Bell-shaped trees still have a large number of such users, they will move the villagers in and out as soon as possible, and advertise to each other at different prices when they leave.
In "New Horizons", cycling towns are slowly re-emerging, but since the game is still relatively new, players must figure out things as they progress. So far, they have not found a foolproof way to persuade villagers to go out, so they spend a lot of time traveling and walking forward in an attempt to reach the point where they decide to skip the town. But doing so limits their ability to play with other systems (for example, it destroys turnips). To make matters worse, there are currently many failures related to trading villagers, especially those received from the amiibo card, making many people reluctant to trade until Nintendo proposes a solution, or the forum at least proposes a solution.
Until these issues are resolved, the user ’s forum signature may continue to display their “dream” that the villager they are looking for will add it to the ideal island. "I am currently looking for Sherb!" Longxi said. This sleepy goat is clearly on the verge of being "extremely" and "very" popular, so I hope Longjingjing will save again after he has fallen in love with Beau.
