Absolutely agreed. I can't get the absolute most from Animal Crossing Bells my game because it's locked away behind those damn balloons. It is a sad gameplay experience waiting for them to spawn and chase them down.
However it shouldn't be the only way to get them. They could just do something easy, such as when you grab a maple leaf you would have a 1/10 chance of your personality going"wait, that is not a leaf it is a DIY" or something like that.
I played al lot in november and only got the all the Mush DIYs on the previous day by just maintaining the Switch running for the entire day and popping every ballon that flew by (while working on other things). I knew it had changed but that I could not really remember how it functioned in New Leaf. It has been a couple of years since I did it.
Like, your villagers that stayed in their houses had"fears" that you needed to match with your masks (which you prepared from the able store before the lead up to Cheap Nook Miles Ticket halloween) in order to find candy from them.then all of the other villagers attempted to chase you down and may induce a conversation on you, and if you did not have candy to give them you got pranked for this.Let Us play Overcooked.
