Villager pinged, but didn't move out

#1MC4prosPosted 6/12/2014 3:36:09 AM(edited)
I wanted Axel out of my town and I had been ignoring him.Later, I was talking to Stitches and he told me that Axel was thinking about moving. I went up in front of Axel, but he didn't ping. A day or two later, he pinged and I immediately talked to him. I told him get outta town, but then he just said no...I thought villagers always move out if you tell them to! >=( Does anyone know why that happened?

Sometimes villagers do say "no" when you tell them to go. They decide they have to stick around longer so you two can become better friends and what not.

I'm guessing you already saved so now Axel's move is canceled.

If that ever happens again quit without saving and when you load the game again ignore Axel. He'll move out if you don't talk to him about it.

If he says no, simply restart and get him to ping again. Eventually, he will say yes. Don't save after he says no though, or else it will cancel his plans on moving entirely.

Ignoring him might have made him want to stay to become better friends. that happened to me with Charlise and I was stuck with her for another three months... it didn't occur to me to reset.

Axel already had plans to move so ignoring him wouldn't have mattered because he's going to move no matter what.

This is what happened and what TC should have done:
Axel pinged TC about moving and when TC told him to leave he decided to stay. What TC should have done in this case was quit the game without saving and reload. Then when Axel re-pings TC it's safe to assume that he wants to ask her about moving again. There are two options at this point: 1) TC can talk to Axel and when he asks about moving she can tell him to leave and hope that he agrees this time; or 2) TC can ignore Axel's ping and Axel will move away on the date that picked.

Thanks for the help! I'll ignore him if he pings to move.

Another tip: don't talk to an animal after they've decided they're going to move.
I had Sydney tell me she was moving and I said okay, and she was going to move.
Then I talked to her the next day to confirm her move date and she decided to stay. Lucha did the same thing once upon a time.
