    Default Is Fishing really necessary?

    We're gonna have a guild event once a month for 4 months. Devs mentioned on how they want it to be more skill based and even built a cool parkour for it to be skill based for the prize itself

    but is fishing really necessary? considering the fact that we can't use exquisites anymore and an Elegant anamarod requires 25 naval mines (which are pretty pricey). it's gonna take us forever to hit the max reward with only pristines

    and considering we only have 4 events,then why isn't the last three Surgery,startopia and cooking? those are real skill based events that don't consume too much time and is rather fun then loosing our sanity to fishing

    We will only see these events only once until all the events have pass by. Surgery, startopia, and cooking will be upcoming events in Summer season, Winter season, or even Spring Season.

    Oh, and the points have been adjusted (slightly), along with the break chances (muchly).
    Starkos mentioned that they will adjust the points slightly, but I agree with you, fishing will take a long time with just using pristine.

    slightly means we would still need to spend alot of time

    edit : might also be better if they decrease the chance of getting trash instead of actual fish

    I'll disagree.

    Fishing requires patience and that's a skill by itself.

    Fishing allows players with a smaller budget to fairly participate in a skill based competition without having to spend each and every one of their wls.

    But by only doing events such as startopia or surgery newer players won't be given the chance to have fun in this huge event meant for all of Growtopians.

    If the numbers don't change for the next event (as witnessed in this block basher event), each fish from pristine yields 55k points, and to get #20 we have to get 16.4m points. Therefore in order to attain the last personal reward, we have to fish 300 fishes, and that's not even considering the inanely abysmal fish per bait rates.

    For comparison, in order to max out the fishing event in previous clashes, we have to fish 162 fishes with the exquisite rod, and that itself takes a long enough time to discourage people from doing the fishing event for the last personal reward.

    But hey, we have elegant rods that boost our points by 3.33 times of a pristine rod! But guess what, you need 25 naval mines for one elegant rod. That's like what, 1 dl? For a rod that might break on its first fish? Some numbers here have to be balanced if you are to introduce such a tedious event into clashes.

    the issue isn't about people being patient or not,it's completely time consuming and not everyone is so free.

    if you wanna participate in events where you get prize,you gotta have some wls to spare

    Surgery and startopia events are the best way to let new players experience and learn other better things to do in game

    Well Carrot blocks were 4-8 wls each on last event and I bet that there are players who desperately need golden medal from this event also. So elegant rods aren't for ordinary players.

    Its not the baits, or the cost, that is the problem. Its the time taken to complete tier 20, and most guilds will set a goal to achieve even further beyond just #20.

    you only need 10 carrot blocks for an elegant and it was 4/wl or so before the event

    naval mine on the other hand,is already a 2WL each yesterday and the stocks are little to none except for the extremely overpriced ones. And you'll need 25 of it for an elegant

    It might take way longer than 6 hours. Probs like 10-15 hours with reliables. Depends how they will adjust the points and break chances.

    People are already buying the mines 3wls each. The supply for them is so small that I don't think anyone is gonna be able to use elegants.

    I think they need to buff the system from get points from catching fish to get points from catching anything like sea lantern , seaweed etc but give a bonus for catching fish and the perfect ones
    Why most people hate each other ?

    I am pretty sure that those events are meant to be for 'not rich players' too, I would like to see some 'poor' players doing surg, like, it is easy to learn, but it is costly, for max personal you will need like probably +100 surgs, and just by that it is definitely more than DL + pristines another 40 WLs probably..so I don't know, you can check my suggestion for startopia/surgery if you'd like to.
