I'm so glad that this game doesn't have any Rivals. I always felt really bad for Rick in Friends of Mineral Town because I'd marry Karen and then he'd be stuck without anyone for himself. Makes me sad :( but this game doesn't have any rivals so yay :)))
I'am GLAD there is no rivals in this one and I hope there is none in the future of HM, because I won't have to rush in giving gifts to the guys before the rival event starts to trigger and when I choose the bachelor I want maybe it's just me but I cringe a little when I see the rivals after I got married. Thanks Natsume! ^_^
Considering how long it takes for things to get done in this game (one farm expansion a season, but only if you're not fixing the tunnel), romantic rivals would have been nice to see. I rarely play past completing the 3rd year in HM games, but I'll probably end up in the 5th year before I'm satisfied with getting everything.
