Hello, anglers!

Now, you can create and customize competitive fishing events based on your own preferences, by fine-tuning and adjusting multiple event settings, including rules, locations, time schedules, participants and much more!

We designed a whole array of new tools to make it more comfortable for you to create and host just the perfect angling competitions and set numerous parameters to your preferences:

  • Use pre-existing templates or generate your fishing event from scratch!
  • Select the competition formats (free for all/team/duel) and privacy settings.
  • Set your own Entry Fee and Prize Pool.
  • Choose from multiple settings, including location, number of participants, player LVLs, duration, time, weather conditions, tackle, qualifying fish, etc...!

We’ll tell you in more detail here how these new competitions are going to look like in the game.

A new Custom Competitions will be added to the game interface that’ll feature a convenient list of all the user competitors both available and already played.

Aside from standard Custom Competitions, there will be Sponsored Competitions easily recognized by the distinctive golden design of the following elements:

  • Logo frame
  • Icon for the competition format
  • Competition name

These competitions have some special characteristics:

  • Only a Hosts appointed by the game devs may create Sponsored Competitions.
  • Once created, such events get checked by the Administrator before publishing.
  • These competitions have unique names and are always shown at the top of the event list.
  • Devs may assign sponsor rewards for these competitions.

Sponsored Competitions will pose a particular interest for the more advanced sport anglers, being a perfect chance to compete against equally worthy opponents and win valuable prizes!

If you're an influencer and want to create your own competition, please contact sс@fishingplanet.com with information about your channel and your nickname in Fishing Planet and they will provide you all the information needed.

That’s all for now! Stay tuned to keep track of what’s fishing;)

Well, while I was very excited for this update, I must say that it seems to be bugged on PS4..

When the competition starts, the counter counts down, you can enter, but if you start fishing, you're not in the competition. Not the right weather conditions, no top 10 table.. something is not working there.

Once you restart the game, you can correctly enter the competition, choose your spot, go to the lake, and you'll see the scores. But since the user generated comps are live (why?), you'll have already lost 8 minutes of your fishing time by then.

I really love this feature, and think it can bring so much to the game. But from my first impression it is still bugged.

Happened at Weeping Willow UK. Will do some more testing in the next days.

Thank you guys for putting it out. It'd be awesome if you could fix this, though. Thanks! ❤️

Edit: why can't we give the comps custom names? I don't understand that part of it. Also, it doesn't show the wind direction when I create a custom comp. The menu is a bit confusing here. It'd be awesome if you could make it easier to identify and set the specific conditions. Thanks!

Had the same issue. I sent an email to support and apparently they are unable to see the issue in the game data. They requested a video of the problem.

When they work, they are fun. Hope they get it sorted.

Well Jamaica no problem 😎 Next time we'll record a video before we enter. If it helps them bug fixing, that's the least we can do 😁 Maybe also crowdfund a PS4 for the dev team. It might help. You never know. 😁

Enjoy your weekend guys. Maybe see you in one of the next custom comps. Tight lines! 🎣

Please submit a ticket at support@fishingplanet.com with your nickname and competition details included, we'll check the game data regarding this case. At the moment we received only one report from @Tmif and unable to reproduce it.

Just me? Well, then I volunteer my services as a tester since it seems I,and I alone, am either skilled or unlucky enough to uncover these rare issues.

Et voilà, here's a video of the incident.

At 4:08 I register for the competition (Big Red Fish in this case). At 11:27 I try to enter the competition.

When I go fishing, the game puts me in a random room, but obviously not the competition room.

When I go back into the menu, I can still change spots, but I can't change the chat room, because it won't let me point the controller at the chat room button with d-pad. Also, I can't select the "finish competition" button.

All in all, I can't do anything but re-start the game. After a restart, everything works as intended.

Hope this helps.

So it was a usual competition, not a custom? 

Yep, in this case it was a usual competition.

I haven't played a lot of custom competitions so far. Only 2 or 3. Couldn't reproduce the error there.

Maybe in the next days I can try some more. If it happens for custom comps again, I'll upload another video.

I have not played any of the competitions as of yet but I do have a concern. Whenever I am fishing i constantly get pop ups on the screen about the various competitions that are coming up. Some are duplicated and it is a total distraction to the game. I wish there was someway to block the announcements when you didn’t want to see them.
