Competitions have ruined this game for me...

Recommended Posts

I've been playing FP for just over a month now and I was ABSOLUTELY loving it... Until I started trying competitions.. What a freaking joke. The game is so inundated with cheats that there is zero chance for an honest player to win. Is there any effort at all being made by the devs to work on this? Any plans to? Anything??

After dropping a couple hundred bucks into DLC's, premium status, and baitcoin packs I feel like the world's biggest chump.

No way to get a refund on anything, no hope of seeing an attempt to correct the problem..

And NOT A CHANCE I will ever recommend this game to anyone!!

Nothing to do with cheats, u play for a month and expect automatically win against many people who have played a long time who most have played 100s of comps gaining extensive knowledge on how to play within the comps and tournys. I know a few players that have played less than a year that have been lucky enough to gain a few wins and also place well but all of these people have still played a few 100 comps and taken time to learn them. A month isnt long enough for you to even begin to learn them especially since most likely the best part of that month you have been leveling up and learning how to play the game it self. A good place to start would be some of the size comps eg trout hunter were anybody can win, just a matter of hitting that lucky weight of a fish. The more time you put into learning the more likely you are to see the benifits. Deciding after a month you want to play comps and expecting to get top spots just doesnt work, but deciding to play comps and each time you enter you learn a little in time you might just get the prize

Join a team and have better results, do not think that with a month in the game will be able to compete with old players.  keep in mind that it is not only going to the lake and knowing the location of some fish that will give Victory "Climate, sun, rain, wind, baits, rod and many other factors will help you win.  I still did not even know what a competition was.

@Kylerobz I don't expect in a million years to BEAT players who have like 2000 hours in this game. What I do expect is to NOT see the same names over and over winning comps or to see the same people pulling 15 or 20 trophy fish out of the water EVERY SINGLE COMP. 

It is so blatant.

And please, point out to me where in my post that I said that I shouldn't be beaten? Where did I say that I was the uber angler-woman of the free world? Oh, wait... I didn't.

I, as Rotacomando, pointed out, go into comps with the sole purpose of learning the different game mechanics as opposed to open play. I entered the Trout tourney. No thought of winning, just to see how the game differs during competition.

 

You entirely missed my point, Kylerobz.. I wasn't complaining about losing. I was complaining about the OBVIOUS hacks and cheats going on in this game.

😅 wow id like to know were abouts i said you shouldnt be beaten also. Even top players get beaten still im just pointing out that good results only come through many hours of learning. All the scores you see are real no cheat or hack the same names you see are there for the reasons explained

Yeah... ok. I see where this is going. Thank you for your input Kylerobz. I'm sure you're right... whatever you say.

 

It's easier to 'read properly' when the poster spells properly, punctuates and uses grammar properly too.

Your not the 1st person that has spat there dummy out over being told the trueth and tryd to to use the incorrect grammer card all because they dont like what they hear. Unfortunatly if your going to rant on a forum claiming things you know nothing about be prepaired for answers that mite not be what you were hoping for from people that do know and are mearly trying to explain, wether spelt properly or not 😅

I play only on PS4 so PC might be different. But there is a big difference between regular fishing and comps. There is a whole pattern/system to be learned to do well. I have 3 wins mostly by luck. Check the old posts, there are numerous posts about cheating in comps, some maybe by me. They aren't cheating. It's a system altogether separate you have to learn. I wish they were different, but cheating ain't the problem.

I'm not at all sure what your point is, but please, continue. You're hilarious.

The point was made from the start of the post. Explaining how it is to help you from future posting nonsence💩. Glad you was entertained for the day atleast hope our conversation has lightened the mood enough for you to continue to play and perhaps continue to attempt comps and tournys

I know what my point was, and I made it. But what the heck is all this? ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ 

I never claimed I was forced into anything.  Just that if I had known there was a cheating problem with this game that I wouldn't have spent so much money on it.

But, you've said a few things that are really bordering on offensive, and since I'm sure you won't have any idea what I'm talking about, let me show you.

Don't appreciate you insulting my intelligence.

Calling someone a 'dummy', however badly misspelled, is still insulting their intelligence.

Now, apparently because I don't agree with you everything I post is nonsence or poop?

 

I've had enough of this. It does break forum rules regarding insults.

Firstly correcting you isnt insulting you

Secondly spit your dummy out is a frase eg: when someone is in a mood about something, id say trying to bring up someone having poor spelling and grammer would be more insulting of ones intellegence. How do you know im not dislexic???

Thirdly its not the disagreeing that is nonsence its the part where you claim to know after a month matter of factly that many that do well in comps and tournys are cheaters or hackers.

So take your complaint to the admin if you like by all means😂

Investing in DLCs is bad idea. Wont help you.

Better invest in me and I will show you via share play how to achieve such unachievable top results in comps. 😉🤑

And seriously speaking: at least in PS4 (no clue about steam) there are no cheats.

Many competitions need specific strategy's do actually set a good score. Youll need to invest time to learn the ways to do them. I dont believe that after 1 month of playing you know all the ins and outs of the game, let alone the competitions. Its easy to say others cheat without any proof. There are enough players who either stream or put competition guides on YT, so you can see how they get the very good results.

Competitions system rework in progress. Probably will be finished with Players created competitions release, and all american waterways will be switched to the new FIsh AI system.

This will keeps cheaters off the comps. And the time will be reduced from 2 hours to 45 min, which will remove twinks.

I have a couple things to say here.  If we are going to the new AI system the fish need to follow, generally, what real fish do.  For example, predator fish need to generally be around attack points like ledges, underwater points, changes in bottom structure like rocks to grass of vice versa.  Not just swimming around randomly.  Catfish hang in holes, pretty much a known fact. 

You guys have spotted bass in lilies. That is not where they live, that is large mouth area.  Spots (Micropterus punctulatus) are generally a deep water fish and should be found on underwater islands and deep water points.  Look up YouTube videos on spotted bass if you choose not to believe me, California, or Georgia for example.  Other areas of the county use the name "Spotted bass" they are however not spots, just borrowing the name.  The fish FP shows in Texas, looks to be the spots I am speaking of above.

My point, fish should follow generally know characteristics of Real fish and not just randomly swim about.

XBox

Many competetions cancelled ... not enough active players !!! Why ???

80+ registered players and 10 -+ finished ... why ? many players have 5+ accounts !!!

90% competetions wins the same players ... why ? all time lucky ??? Big payers or knows all actually buggs ???

Nice game but competetions kill all ... free members after 20-50+ competetions only unistall game !!!

on Xbox there can be a delay of several hours or at most a day (if holiday) when purchasing a DLC.

You will get it eventually.   Quite the game,  restart the console, check for Store app update and look again.

 

 

btw,   

you should have created a new thread for your issue, or better email support@fishingplanet.com
