GAR-O-Ween and 1.1.4 update.

Recommended Posts

Our team would like to thank you all for providing us much needed constructive feedback and healthy criticism. 
We did monitor the event from the beginning and though it is working as intended we’ve taken into consideration the community feedback, especially regarding difficulties catching Vampire Gar. Based on that we made some adjustments which should deliver a more smooth fishing experience.
This should be implemented in the current release (1.1.4) as well with some minor bug fixing.

Being genuine fishing simulator, we would like to see our game challenging but fun and rewarding at the same time. It's not an easy task, but we would like to thank you for staying with us and supporting our wonderful game!

... including the ps4 Gar-O-Ween Challenge Prizes that don't appear on avatars, only in your inventory? (Why would anyone want to down-grade their waistcoat to 15 tackles and 1 line without the main benefit?)

Dear developers, please make more biting. If it is the same dull, I and those 100 mice that I bought not spent, and therefore not buy again, understand me?Make fishing more fun, let it be easier to be playing a couple of hours after work, get ALL things, and waistcoat, and hat, and a box. After all, only to remain in the black.

Glad to see that you are taking the time to consider what we have to say Gar-O-Ween is an event and as such is supposed to be fun not frustratingly boring and costly on top of that both in-game & IRL wise.

 So what are the official catch rates for the halloween fish now that you have revamped them?? and why is the halloween bait not increasing our chances when it costs real $$ IMO if the standard catch rate is .40% then using the halloween bait (Instead of standard shiners, Lrg Cut) should at lest double that catch rate if not triple it.

That's great news for folks, well those that didn't waste most our money on travel & baitcoins for baits chasing after the 1st reclusive version. Good luck to that group or anyone w/ enough funds to restock & try w/ improved bite rates; sadly my guy's tapped out & couldn't afford to stay & try if I wanted too. Hope the new ratios benefit y'all more than those of us that are now broke & put in legwork to pin them down & prove numbers were unreachable. Good luck & tight lines Y'all!!

Actually whatever they did, did fix issues; the chat log in every LA. instance is proof of that. Just watched atleast 25 caught in one room & my numbers were 1 for every week of time spent, just caught 6 myself (some on crawfish cut) in one night (& still at it). Sadly tho as stated above wasted all my resources before fix was installed.

Ive tried everything and my catch rate is destroyed.  I’m seriously pissed off. 

 

Went from 6 fish 00:00-04:00 to 1 fish all night. This is bullshit

 

i could set watch to bites previously

I have to add this. The "Fun Garoween Event", is not in the least bit fun.  (FUN... a word for 10 year olds)  . Surely the point of said event would be to encourage and please your player-base, as oppose to completely pi**ing them off. The bite rates are dismal for all 4 event species. 

I previously had all three of these events completed. You lot in your infinite wisdom have chosen to remove my completed events and replace them. BS.

I spent 4 full nights at Neherrin and caught 10.

I spent 3 full nights at Florida and caught 2.

I am not going to Louisiana.

The ghost pike are seriously stupid.  eg.   Cast lure to 100 feet, begin retrieve.  The fish spawns right in front of me while the lure is still miles away. It then swims off. I caught 12 in three nights. All in all, a super crap event that has wound up a lot of folks. -_-

Hello support team

I would like to know when are you going to improve the fish AI on snooks, those fish like to snag you, make tarpon jump in a acrobatic way, IMPROVE THE LINE SOUND WHEN THE FISH IS TAKING LINE OUT OF THE REEL and add snappers to salty florida

Just now completed tier III of the Silver Bullet Challenge. Caught 100 Black Vampire Gar. Got the Scarecrow Hat as a reward. It holds 4 extra baits. However, it unfortunately just shows up as a regular baseball cap and not the cowboy hat. Extremely happy and sad all at the same time. So much work, sold all of my X-series gear to get the baits to catch them, down to 1 bait left too and 2 baitcoins. All of this despite today's nerf on the spawn rate and the first 4 days not even catching a single Vamp, coupled with the fact that I lost 17baitcoin baits due to the "strike too early bug". Bittersweet.

Congrats on the achievement HeadShot, VN!
 
@Team FP
Now about the rewards & false advertising, WTH Team FP! In no way was it ever mentioned the Vest or Hat being regular cap & jacket. That's shady & down right dirty, y'all knew folks would spend all their time & resources chasing those items just because they were shown & advertised as something special & totally different than any purchasable outfit items. On top of that 0 baitcoins for catching all 100, seriously? You get 18 for completing Tier II, yet not a single 1 for more than triple that amount. As stated in other posts, I always try to give game Devs the benefit of a doubt in nearly all situations, but sorry there is no conceivable defense for how the Gar-o-ween event has been ran & setup (catch rate wise) or how the rewards were falsely portrayed, all of which was intentional & underhandedly done to solicit folks to use all their resources on this broken Event and buy more resources trying to complete challenges or so they'd be broke at completion & have to buy more resources to even fish. It was dirty & anyone who tries to justify it knows deep down it was underhanded & shady. Betting y'all just lost alot of income for a sneaky 1 week dash for cash, just pathetic!

I just gotta address that last paragraph...

First, great!  That’s a great plan for the core game. 

Second, special holiday events with made up fake fish and corny holiday prizes is no longer part of ‘simulation’. It’s just a wacky fun event to generate excitement with your community (and sell a few corny monster packs). Normal ‘simulation’ rules don’t apply. Period.  

Instead focus on high energy, fast paced, fun.  Frankly, these event gar should be as fast to hook as Large Mouth Bass.  Nearly every cast. For a fun, not so serious holiday event, people want fun, fun, fun.  Not work, work, work.  

Here is how you do a community corny fun holiday event right...  https://youtu.be/hcJAWKdawuM

Oh yeah, it would also be nice if thevrewards were actually what was promised. 

Why is my ‘strawhat’ some POS yellow ball cap?!?! Or, peoples ‘psychkiller vest’ a high collar grey jacket?!?!?

Seriously, get your s**t together please.  You have the best fishing game out there. Own it. Make better decisions and people will love you.

Oh!  One more thing!

Get the PS4 and PC experience in line!!!

Both versions should have all the same everything at the same time.  That’s just how it’s done.  Schedule so they are always congruent. Trust me, it will greatly improve your development tracking and efficiency as well. Not-to-mention cut down the animosity PS4 players have towards you for it. 

Would have been nice having boats, night fishing and a full gar-o-ween event with pumpkins loaded with baitcoin baits and ghost pike on PS4. 

If you are going to introduce stuff months later on ps4, make it better and cheaper because right now ps4 is a majorly inferior product for the same cost DLCwise. 

PS4 still doesn’t have everything advertised in the PS4 sizzle trailer and that’s bad.  In fact, it’s false advertising and that doesn’t go well with people.

Regarding Scarecrow Hat and Psycho Killer Vest items not showing properly on PS4 - we are already aware of that bug. No worries, the items have their own unique appearance.The fix should be implemented in the next release.

That's great too hear, thanks. Anything being done about those of us who wasted all our resources chasing the Vampire (for the straw cowboy hat) during the first 4-6 days they were basically uncatchable & had the bait stolen bug? If not the reward item, any chance of having our accts credited for the resources we used?
