  1. Cool. Can't wait for this to be released on PS4. Could have potential for some fun weekends! Especially when there are no interesting or just amateur comps on the schedule. Maybe some players will come up with some interesting ideas for comps. Are there any plans on getting inspired, and converting some of the more creative and most played custom comps into official comps?
  2. Calm down guys. You don't know what waterways and fish the devs had already in mind when they put out the update with the bottom rods. As of now, the strongest leader is more than sufficient to get all the fish currently in the game out of the water quite easily. And when they introduce bigger fish, I'm sure they'll come with some stronger leaders. Just keep your HeavyChasers and be glad that they still have room for improvement / upgrades. When the update is released, you'll only need to purchase some leaders and a line and you're ready to go. No money wasted.
  3. Yup. TBH I don't like the fact that they left quickstrike in the game either. But that's how I completed the achievement as well. During the One by One comp. And for that achievement, quickstrike is indeed pretty fun - in a really sadistic way.. 30 quickstrikes in a row, not missing a single one is quite the challenge. But I somehow like that it's so hard - and almost not obtainable with "regular" techniques. Feels pretty dang good if you get it.. and the adrenaline rush after 20 or so fish.. not trying to miss no. 28 Thanks for the tip though Rota. Always quality stuff from you. I'll give it a shot next time.
  4. Hey guys, Since me and my friends are still unsure about buying the game, I was curious if any of you guys from the community can give me some feedback on the bugs in the F2P version, and if they have been fixed for the Fisherman: Has anyone gotten the point in leveling where they can use rod-stands yet? Can you maybe answer some of the following questions? - The problem with the rods being put away randomly / after each reeling in - has it been fixed? - The crazy lags after 30/60 minutes in-game, fishing with several rods and a rod-stand, are they still present? - The bug where it changes your reeling speed every time you put a rod in the rod stand on slot 1 & 3, is it still present? - What about the strength of the fish? Are they the same as in the current F2P version? - When you un-equip a PVA bag from a carp rod, does it still also remove your sinker? Any other bugs you noticed that got fixed? Maybe some that are still present, or maybe even new? I'm thankful for any insights. Most of the stuff I could find on YouTube is just returning players leveling up again, going for redear sunfish and shit.. Haven't really heard anything about making especially the PS4 players' experience any better by fixing annoying bugs.. I know about the crazy BC repair costs for DLC gear.. but how many BCs do you usually get for a uni? More like 4 or more like 30? Thanks guys!
  5. So you buy the game for 60-70 Euros to get the DLCs for free, and then you have to farm BCs in-game to unlock / buy them, and then you restrain from using the DLC gear and let it rot in your home storage because you can't afford the repair costs.. Great job fishing planet. You guys never seem to amaze me with your perfect balancing
  6. the women man.. they don't understand what it means to finally hook the trophy Nice anecdote. Made me laugh. I hope it's gonna work out next time tight lines!
  7. Yeah that seems pretty big for the bass in Mudwater. Anything with a #1 or #1/0 hook should be enough for that lake. Casting Spoons, BassJigs, or #1 and #1/0 Jigheads with 2in or 2 1/2 in worms / craws should work. As for the mission, I'd use a #1 or #1/0 (Mini) Bass Jig in Mudwater. In order to catch the big bass for the mission, go for the Trophy LMB in Neherrin River with a #2/0 BassJig. They get much bigger than the ones in Mudwater. Tight lines buddy!
  8. Did a quick edit of the footage I had lying around on my PS4 from the last tourney. Maybe this helps: As for the timezones - apart from what's shown in the video: don't ask me Maybe the Ubersheet helps; maybe you need to find out for yourself..
  9. I don't really fish much in Mudwater. The last I remember was the bass tourney there.. Trophys are really hard to get. You're lucky if you get one, maybe 2 per hour. Don't know if this used to be different at some point. What was working best for me in the tourney was a 7g #1 Jighead with a 7 cm worm. The blue, white and chocolate one were my favourites (on a sunny day). But, they seem to be as rare as Unis.
  10. Yeah, I agree that it could use a little more balancing. Because not all species have changed in the same way. I'm not a real fisherman, so I don't know where the differences for different species are. I can only imagine that Pike and muskies have more power, and put up more of a fight than other species. But while I like the fight with the sturgeons in Cali on the HeavyChaser now - as well as the big trout in Alberta on the Zeus, I think they overdid it a little with the Pike. An 8kg trophy will run away 4, 5, 6 times on a 16kg setup (Brutus 360). I don't think that's fair. On the other hand, a 9kg unique gar in neherrin will come in smoothly on a 9kg setup (Fenix 450). I haven't really tried the catfish in MI yet, so I can't say anything about it. But the dollys in Alaska seem to not have changed at all. I find this quite confusing. You'd think they just put +25% power to everything. But it seems to me they added +50% to everything above 10kgs. Or, maybe, to everything that's worth farming. Just to make the grind even harder? That'd be even more ridiculous..
  11. Thanks man, but I have to apologize for going off-topic in my mind. I wasn't talking about this specific bug. It happens, yes. But a blue-screen once a week doesn't really bother me. On PS4, we've been through blue-screen hell last year, and we've had to cope with the menu issues for half a year or so. We're not easy to break What DOES indeed bother me is the rods being out away constantly. I wrote about it here, and included video footage: I don't want to stop you from investigating the blue screen stuff, but this bug is really a lot more annoying, as it happens on a daily basis, every couple of minutes, to all of us on PS4, and ruins the fun in fishing e.g. (and especially) Pike & muskies in Michigan with a rod stand. I'd be more than happy to contribute more to the investigation of THAT bug than any other. It'd be awesome if devs could get that one fixed soon. Also, we'd like to get some features back that were once available to us. Like And Again, sorry for going off-topic. And sorry for flaming at support. But some bugs are really kind of game-breaking and frustrating, and should get more attention I believe. The last weekend in MI really messed me up.. And the last two are just features that were at one time present in the game, and got removed (by accident?) somehow. It'd be great to have them back. Again, thank you for taking the time to read my ranting have a good start into the week
  12. Thanks man, I know about the bug reporting procedure, I know my way around the forums, and I have sent my share of emails to support. I just feel like I can't be bothered anymore to invest the time to write emails, when support is making your feel like an idiot with that "it is a known bug and will be fixed with the next one update". When? 2021? Will you let me in on what is causing the bug? Can I somehow provide you with additional information that might help fix the bug? Do you get a thank you for describing the bug? Nah. Nothing. I was once happy to help, but TBH I don't care anymore. Thank you for actually reading and replying though. That's a step in the right direction. Appreciate it
  13. Happens on PS4 as well. Not nearly every time, but sometimes. Pressed options, map opens, pressed R1 a couple of times to go to the friends list, game crashed.
  14. Bump. Standing in Germany now. Happens after every cast. For like an hour. Really annoying. I can hear my nerves ripping..
  15. Wenn das Spiel beim Ladebildschirm hängen bleibt bedeutet das meistens dass die Server nicht erreichbar sind. Wartungsarbeiten vielleicht. Einfach später nochmal versuchen.
  16. What a nice post. Totally agree. I met some awesome people through this game, and have had a lot of fun evenings and weekends with FP and the people that play it. It is indeed an awesome game, otherwise we wouldn't be sticking around for so long. Tight lines everybody.
  17. Hm I'm kinda undecided on this. It's a double-edged sword. On the one hand I'm with @Rotacomando on this: I like a good fight, and I got nothing against a little challenge in the game. A 25kg sturgeon should not just fly out of the water - same goes for a unique catfish, clear muskie, etc. Even with heavy gear those fish should pose a challenge. I haven't really tried the catfish and muskies yet, but I noticed that the trophy trout in Alberta got stronger, too. Even with the Zeus + Kraken. And I liked that. On the other hand, it should still be possible to get big fish out of the water with slighty lighter gear, too. I liked targeting the uni Pike and tiger muskie with the Fenix. Just because it was a nice fight, in comparison to the Brutus. But with the last few patches (and the last one especially, like you guys stated) the fish not only got stronger (which I'm in favor of), but are also impossible to get out of the water if not using top notch gear. There is no tiring effect (anymore?), and it has been like this for a while now. You can get em as close as 20 m if you take your time; but then they run away to 50 m again. Again and again. I've spent 30-60 real-life mins fighting the fish, until I gave up. This is really frustrating. Feel free to make it hard for the players, but give them a chance. Don't bait people into believing they stand a chance against the fish, and then make them give up after an hour. Either let the fish get tired after a while, and offer players a chance to land them, or just make the line snap at some point in the fight. As a way of telling people "this one's too big. Don't waste your time." And I agree with @kylerobz, too: A game is supposed to make you feel good when you play it. Offer a challenge, but give people a reasonable chance. And then reward players if they achieve something. As of now, the grind is hard enough as is. They're still kind of left alone when it comes to figuring out how to make a balanced setup, not get bankrupt due to travel fees, and after all of that, also learn the mechanics. Which should be way more important than keeping an eye on your money. If the fish get even stronger now, and choosing the right setup becomes even more important than ever before, people might run away before even making it to Michigan. Sure, an OmniFloat shouldn't pull a big catfish out if the water. But I think the devs overshot their goal. I too think that the balancing is not on point. To offer some kind of inspiration for landing big fish on lighter gear, though: Even after the last patch, I managed to get a 23+ kg uni carp out of the water in Germany, with a 12 kg setup (Ardix 400, EspiraDoublePunch 5500, Fluoro 0.45 mm) by closing the brake all the way, once I got the fish as close as 20 m. Which was the distance where the fish usually took off again. Might not work with all setups, as some part of your setup might brake (probably the line?), but it worked for this one. Don't remember it exactly, but I think the Fluoro is a little over the 12kg of the reel, and over the 11.5 kg of the rod. Maybe that caused the line to not break, and the weight of the fish being distributed more to the rod & reel. Must've given the few kg extra power that were needed to get it out of the water.
  18. 5 even, if you're holding one in your hand.
  19. I gotta agree. We post so much shit on this forum.. letting out frustration, complaining about everything.. but this time, I gotta give kudos to the devs. I too think it's awesome that they revised the comp and implemented all the new gear and equipment and locations. Even though I already spent a week or so training for the old-style comp (which is all for nothing now): it would've been so pointless to go for 1 kg common carp in neherrin when we got all those new waterways and species and gear and bait to catch some 20 kg+ moafuggas! So even though I probably won't stand a chance, and will run around the lakes like a headless chicken, catching nothing but crap, I gotta say: this is awesome! Great job devs! And we can even put down our rod-stand.. this is gonna be a great comp. So much looking forward to it! Good luck everybody! (Send markers! )
  20. First of all: congratulations mate! Well done! Just be aware that competitions are always held in a 2-hour timeframe. So if the comp starts at 4pm, people can play the comp until 6pm. If you yourself start right away at 4pm and finish 1st place at 4:30, there might still be other players playing the competition (and possibly overtaking you). It is not until 6pm that the comp is closed, and rewards are sent to the players. You will get notified by a pop-up window with the results, once the comp is finished. Sometimes this might take a couple of minutes. I've had cases where the comp was bugged, and the ends results were not being displayed. And rewards were not sent at all. In that case, you should contact support by email. But I had that only once in over a year of FP. Just wait a bit Long story short: congrats again!
