Release Note 03.22: Mississippi Blue Crab Island

Recommended Posts

Are you ready for fabulous fishing? Welcome to Mississippi Blue Crab Island!

This picturesque place is a real paradise for anglers in the azure waters of the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico. The trip to the Blue Crab Island is the dream of any experienced angler. Only the singing of birds and the buzzing of insects interrupt the local silence and solitude. Along the canals – thickets of sawgrass, the water here hides many large species. You can fish from a wooden pontoon near the boat station, or you can take a motor, go for a spin along the mangrove, and enjoy nature away from the coast and closer to the inhabitants of saltwater.

You've got a big party to plan here:

New level cap
Existing leveling system will be increased to 55 levels in maximum. The Mississippi Blue Crab Island will be available for all users who gained level 54. 

Locations
Despite the waterway’s impressive size, there will be  two entry locations.
The first location  - Mangrove Sunset - is situated next to a large stilt house, right in the center of the waterway and is a great spot to start exploring both fresh and saltwater areas by boat.

The second location -  The Bass Base - is on wooden docks in the middle of a freshwater bay, amidst natural wild scenery and black mangrove trees.

Keep in mind that Mississippi is a waterway made specifically for boats and you can explore it in all possible ways.  You can also land anywhere along the coast.

Now you can easily move around with gear in your hands while fighting fish. You can take out and hide the rod in any convenient place.

We have added autosave for your last position: now you can return to the very point where you were before exiting the game.

New fish species
Skilled anglers have a chance to catch new fish.

Bonefish,

New Trophy and Unique fish

Although at first glance the pond seems calm, it hides many fish, each of which is a welcome trophy: Tarpon, Red Drum, Snook, as well as a relic resident of the local waters – the Longnose Gar.

I'm missing a huge chunk of xp bar what's up with that level cap comes and you set me back on xp literally made it so I could catch one fish before the increase and get the next level.

Same happened to me on my rank.  I was a few fish away from moving to the next rank and now I am a 1/20th on the bar with a very slow grind up hill.

Your rank meter is separate from your leveling meter. Once you reach level 55, you're rank meter will be returned as it was before the update.

Thanks, that helps. So, get to 55 and then my rank will show I need a few fish to hit the next rank.  Cool on that..... Still need work on those rod stands.

Can someone at FP answer 

Will these 30 day challenges be on Xbox also after the Mississippi update?

What happens if somebody has already completed the 30 day on Tiber and Akhtuba  already?

Can they do it again for the new items?
