Very dissapointed

So iv just held my 1st sponsored comp and quite frankly im very disapointed. Quanchkin lake was once one of my favourate waterways, there were many people that hated the place and complained of the trip not being worth while. The abundance of spots (almost everywere) that could catch bass i showed mant many people in the past it was well worth a visit especially if you had a frogpopper of any colour they would most certainly make cash . The flathead cats was and stil is alot trickyer to get the jist of the changes and also after a few practice runs of lucky spot i realised i might aswell leave the frogpoppers at home. So i set the comp up to catch trophy/uni spotted and largemouth bass to my suprise i caught only 1 qualifying fish the whole 45 mins 2 fish caughr in total and id say maybe 5 missed strikes at the most and of corse i tryed many many spots for both bass. Now yes i know regardless of the lmb semi finals there a couple years back and also the lucky spot comp i was able to get top 10 very often, im very much outdated. However some of the players that were also in the comp are to this day very good and knowledgeable player yet ther score was i think 2 or 3 qualifying fish and i noticed they wasnt catchin alot of other fish either. See i thoufht nothing of it until now but it seems there are many other players that are getting the same veiw at the moment with the game. Iv had nothing but rubish during the comps iv played since returning and again have been passing it off as needing to gain knowledge as before, going from top 50 to probly nearly top 70s on the leaderboards now is fine im prepaired to lose many more as right now im not even a top 100 contender, not even fazed by barely reaching top 20s in most comps atm and yes even a cuple of not even top 50 finishes today 😂, but the way i see it all of that is erelevent. I left the game a couple years back because the game was in a poor state and it just seemed the devs were only bothered about lining there pockets rather than valueing us as ther comunity of there revenue. i highly doubt if i was a normal player especially knowin what a great place louisiana was id even bother returning to quanchkin. Long story short i think this long time back might end up a short and sweet get to brazil catch a few sharks and leave again. I dont even want to get started with the constant game crash many times a day, every single time i check my connection and im running a steady 82mbps rather than a poxy 18-20 at a push like i used to back when i was a long stayer player. Thank you fp for all the new content iv returned to and for your efforts iv baught 2 lots of weeks premium as another contribution but unfortunatly thats your cracker. Maybe a month maybe a week or maybe a few days til i can jump 2 more levels n hit them bullsharks but sad to say, iv had enough disapointment in my life the last few years without adding these kinds of insults the devs continue to show there cashcows throughout the years. I think il stick to helping my kids on there fortnite game again instead......they have fishing on that game to 😂 you can actually catch fish aswel 😉😂

Aw, hugs bro. I feel your pain❤️

I seldom do comps on Fishing Planet because a combination of server lag and Comcast lag which accomplishes several things:

  • Disconnects
  • Rod physics wonkiness
  • Loss of character control
  • Loss of language control (that's when I resort to shameless cussing in Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese and Samoan)

When I enter a comp and get hit by server and Comcast lag, my side of the game loads incorrectly with missing data. I end-up in a glitched Twilight Zone instance.

You are a braver soul than I am to run a competition on Fishing Planet since you share similar connection issues as I do.

The Fisherman has such a small population that there is no server lag that causes hiccups in the data stream which in turn can mess-up rod physics. Unfortunately, there are no custom comps for anyone to run there.  When comps on The Fisherman get cancelled, or weather on my favorite ponds are less than optimal,  I'll occasionally hop onto Fishing Planet to test out new recipes or fishing methods I learned on The Fisherman.

The last comp I did on Fishing Planet was Grass Cutter Range which you can see the result on my carp diary. The catch rate was very slow for everyone except me. I suspect a new method I developed on TF fit the competition's environmental parameters better than the old methods more experienced members were using. Even more experienced members need to practice and be open to new methods.

The thing is you can clearly (maybe not so clear due to rubish phone 😂) see that these scores were very much fixed to low biterates. Now as i said i am knowingly entering actual comps without a care about loosing points as i would of in the past because right now i shouldnt be on the leaderboards, i see players i helped when they 1st started a few years back are doing far better than me also, so entering now i am not worried were i will place especially since most of them i am trying new, old, strangeeeee new things 😂 sometimes i even fall asleep mid comp. I care not, but some things im strugling to ignore as it lets the game down completely and in turn letting the players down especially those who have stayed with fp all the way. As i say i left a couple years ago because of these kind of things. 

You mention eg: missing data , twilight zones etc as do many other players, well take a look at my sponsord comp thread above this 1, u will see i was missing a box that was needed to be ticked in order to send the comp details off for reveiw 😞 mite seem small but wow iv never heard of sumin like that now if things like that are randomly missing who knows what else is missing at what times spawn points?? Fish?? I thought maybe was just the usual thede people complain because they carnt just sit at there 1 youtube spot and farm for hours on end they now need to move....... or maybe they are right and the data for the fish spawnning is missing. Evrybody always say do they not, if no fish reset game. Im sorry but why would you want to play a game were it constantly needs swiching on and off seriously 😂

Every player on my team play comps regular and half are regular top 10 even top 3s. Tomtheflush as you can see is climbing the board, at the rate im going he will pass me tomorow or shud i say il be dropping down past him tomorow 😂😂. Do u honestly think he isnt educated in the game enough to get mor than 4 fish in a 45 min window the same timezone as lucky spot is held??? Something very fishy (excuse the pun) going on. I feel the players have every right to be angry and disapointed with the devs. Such a shame since i really thought then took a great corse from were i left but aparantly not

Server lag is most definitely colorful language worthy! I get the most server lag during competition and tournament instances in Fishing Planet. I don't get as much server lag from from The Fisherman. That's why I play The Fisherman more often because server lag is no fun at all. I prefer Fishing Planet, but the combination of server lag and spotty inter connection often makes Fishing Planet next to impossible for me to play. Twilight Zone instances are a real thing.

Competition instances, greatly differ from regular game play as the fish schools are reduced and only active under certain conditions as per weather, temps, and seasonal stuff. I think over time, FP game AI might have been adjusted to make the game more challenging for a larger veteran player base and less cheater friendly. There is more cheating on TF because TF lacks constant developer support to keep-up with the cheaters.

TF game AI is easier to predict and thus far more easier to level-up and predict best fishing options in competitions. There are no overlord devs constantly tinkering with TF game mechanics as they are only on a very limited contract with the publisher of TF.  TF is lucky if they get any dev intervention once a year!  Whereas, updates on FP are frequent because the dev team has full control over their product. TF has such a small population that I doubt there is much incentive for  the publisher to hire the FP dev team more frequently.

Over all the fishing games on steam, I love the Fishing Planet game engine the most because it is the most challenging and biologically realistic. It's not perfect and can be perfectly annoying. That's why I toggle between 2 versions of the same game engine: TF the baby sister and FP the high maintenance moody big sister.

I hope you find your balance game play.  ❤️

I think the balance will be not to persue the custom comps as i feel like the faults placed on me for giving players 45 mins of catching no fish 😂 it brings back memeries of when the devs 1st started playing around and messing with the fish ai a cuple years back after the euro update . After watching a few streams from friends especially after doing testing in some of there peramiters a see a huge difference and issue. The normal fishing has and from what iv been testung stil can be close to the comp and tourny peramiters but it does mean having to say skip 20 days to find the correct enviroment but then also remember for the next 20 and counting down days you will have to leave return and skip (rinse and repeat) everytime. Have you noticed the weather changes in real day time eg: 3 days sunny ne2.2 etc so tomorow real time that weather will be then moved to day 2 then next day as said day 1 wil be your sunny n.e2.2. It is why many people have trouble actually practicing since it does usually require alot of cash and baitcoins to skip to perfect climate. The best time is usually about 2 days (or the same day😴) before the tourny you will usually usually find your prime day on the cards for your practise run 😉

Id say a very good addition to the game when skipping time also being able to see what weather/climate it would land you in, also just going on screen to select climate time on custom comps using origional comp template also show the day in which that climate is held. Nothing worse than advancing 20 days to get a sunny ne2.2 at 2pm just to find it is sunny we3.4 or something plus the other sunny days you skipped to 2pm to check if it was correct weather/climate your already 20 baitcoins down and 40k lighter and still havent even fished for 1 fish 😂 thats practise and dedication to succeed......or aparantly watch youtube and pray for good rng on the day😂
