  1. Yup, seems strange to have tutorial missions in areas with little or no fish.
  2. Same, no reward. Also, I got bored fishing in a seemingly barren area. After 10 minutes or so for just one Grass Pickerel I paddled over to the uni Chain Pickerel spot and did it in no time.

    Are there versions of this comp for all players? Every one this week is amateur only.

    The drag systems

    You guys should put this in the tutorial when people first join the game. I've met many people who have never fished in their life playing this, and this sort of info would be invaluable to them. To this day I see level 40s holding the rod in the air and just reeling in when they have a decent fish on. When I chat to them they admit to having no idea how clutches work because they don't fish for real.

    I stand corrected, knew I'd seen them somewhere though.

    I remember seeing those pics quite some time ago, aren't they PC only? Any new species would be welcome, the harder to catch the better!

    Hiding

    I made a thread about the menu screen a short while ago and then followed with a vid of the scroll speed - no response. I don't pretend to understand what it takes to have this occur but also, I don't understand how it's possible to either not notice, or to think it's fine the way it is? I can understand that they're busy working on the new content, but it's reached the point where I'm just selling stuff from my backpack and then buying new stuff because I don't have the patience to spend 2 or 3 minutes to move 1 item, never mind moving multiple items. Hope you're well fella. I'm not the pinnacle of patience you imply, I've taken plenty of breaks from the game through the year but I always seem to drift back

    500k later, I left with my tail between my legs. Yes, I skipped that many days, along with going home to buy new gear and travelling back etc. Grinding now, then back I go.

    Bug, glitch or trick?

    As I said before, It should be: One IP address, one account. End of. If anyone does anything irreversible in-game they can request their account be reset. It's really that simple. For those who have a wife/kid/aunt/dog who want to compete, well, get a second connection or grow some testicles and tell them they can't. Or let them compete on your account. Simple. But we all know those excuses are transparent..

    I think I'm with you here. Despite not fishing many comps these days, I still check the schedule every time I log on. When I see 4 out of 5 comps are for amateur only and they are then seemingly repeated several times a week while I may see my favourite comps once a week, that gets frustrating. Especially when the ones I am interested in that rarely show are at 3am or 5am. But I agree, been the same old comps for far too long. Let's have some new ones where we all actually start equal - not knowing anything. On the other hand though, that's the price we pay for no region lock I guess, the ability to all fish any and all competitions. And I HATE region lock. The new venues will be an interesting experience for us all, assuming they have competitions. I can see a lot of teamwork and info exchange going on, because the PC players will have zero advantage..

    Do you mean you want more variety with new competitions, or comps scheduled every hour instead of every 2 hours, or a better ratio of amateur and pro comps? Or something else entirely? As you can see, your first post was somewhat unclear on what you're trying to say to those who don't have English as a first language, and your next post is somewhat ambiguous. We need to know what we're saying yes or no to. I'm not being sarky or anything, just trying to ascertain what it is that you're pressing for exactly given that there's a comp every 2 hours?

    Thank you all! (Players coming from the PC)

    Rota, I was not referring to you in any way, everyone who knows you states that you are simply an awesome player who puts the time in, and from what I've seen and read I agree with them. The fact that you posted tips in your last post says everything really. I have never accused you of anything, nor do I now. You have my respect, we can all see how many competitions you've fished. You deserve everything you've accomplished. I just want us to be clear on this - I have no problem with the dedicated, genuine anglers such as yourself. You work hard and get what you deserve. Google translate was fine, I hope it works in reverse so you can understand what I mean.
  14. Anyone else want to dredge up threads that are a year old? That's two today. Ffs, if you're new and reading these threads, just PM whoever it was that posted.

    Thank you all! (Players coming from the PC)

    I've said the same from the start - you spend all your time and money on this game and think you're pretty good. Then you enter a competition and realise everything you've learnt counts for nothing. You have to learn 2 different games, which makes competitions totally unfair. I've played this game for over a year now, but there are only 2 competitions where the things I've learnt apply. This despite having caught every uni in the game a hell of a long time ago. Then bring in things like dual accounts, quickstrike and the weird and wonderful glitchers, and it's no surprise competitions have little appeal to the normal players. We stand no chance against those who want to polish their e-peen some more. I have one silver trophy to my name, yet fish with me casually and I can catch anything and help someone catch it for the first time. Yet I cannot place in competitions because everything I know becomes obsolete. I'd love to know how that's ' fair '..

    Nice little present

    The trophy Blackfish is way harder than the uni Whitefish lol. That one took me a while admittedly seeing as nobody knew where it was, but this tiny fella is killing me and my finances.

    Wish it'd happen to me, I've spunked 500k and God knows how many baitcoins trying to get that damn trophy Blackfish. Down to 100k cash now, time to leave and recoup.

    Menu

    So this is how scrolling through your tackle is on PS4 right now. Moving tackle is a chore to say the least. Even more annoyingly, when I click on an item to move, the cursor then resets to the top of the selected class, or if I haven't selected a class, it goes back to the top of all classes. Check out the speed. Tapping or holding the stick makes no difference, and it is most definitely not my fibre internet. In this vid the stick is always either held or tapped down, sometimes I tap it 3 or 4 times before the cursor grudgingly jumps one space. Input lag? It never used to be like this, but if this continues it will cost you new players given that the tutorial missions require extensive inventory usage.

    Just chatting to a player ( Mrjackthereal ) who could see me trying anything and everything and he said he had only seen one person have the trophy Blackfish, they lucked out on a crankbait. He was glad to hear of a second and called it ' The Unicorn '. I'm starting to agree with him. 900+ unis in and I can't get this tiny little bugger no matter what. I will, not leaving Alaska until I have it. Apologies for missing the Xmas event Jim

    Gars&Glory Cup Tournament

    Should be an interesting final if those Vampire Gar are as glitchy as last year..

    The menu is horrendous.

    At Michigan, 2 friends are fishing there, I want to fish alone. So, I highlight rooms and push right on the left stick to open the room options. As soon as I try to highlight the 2nd friends room by pushing down on the stick, it moves to the 'Go Fishing' tab. If I don't wish to highlight a friends room and simply want a random room, I tap down on the stick or D pad and yep, it goes to the 'Go Fishing' tab. Other times it works first time with no issues, very inconsistent. Quite possibly the worst menu I've ever had the misfortune to navigate, c'mon FP, sort it out. You redesigned it recently so you've obviously spent some time in that area..

    It never used to be like this, I could scroll through at speed before.

    This is why I have no interest in competitions on FP. " Yes I have 2 accounts, but..." Anyone who admits to having more than 1 account is a cheater, yet they're openly admitting it here and nothing is being done about it. You don't fish the same comp twice you say? How are we supposed to know that? It's your sons/daughters/dogs account? Again, no way to prove it. If your dog wants to catch fish, why not do it on your account? I don't use my other account to fish a competition twice you say? Why have it then? 1 IP address, 1 account. FP should make that so and then ban anyone who has more than account. Yes, there're ways around that I'm fully aware, but to have people stating here that they hold multiple accounts with no fear of reprisal shows how screwed it all is. Not aimed at anyone in particular, just find it peculiar why all these skilled players need a second account..

    Fish

    Ok, this thing is killing me. I've fished the hell out of every rock in the vicinity both near and far bank. Tried baits and the spoon in the pic, like Tmif I can't get a single Blackfish from here, let alone the trophy. I take my hat off to you for catching it Sandropen, even if it was an accidental capture. It may not be a big fish, but it's something I haven't caught so therefore I have to have it. I'm there right now wading through Pinks, Chum and Bulls for that one tiny fish which refuses to make an appearance. Even worse, not a single rainy day for the next 2 weeks, although trophies generally aren't as fussy as unis in that regard. Ah, the hell with it. Goodbye 14 baitcoins while I skip..
