    Default Petition to Remove the Guild Event: Fishing Fanatics!

    You already know what this thread is about, who else is sick of the Fishing Event? It's the longest, largest grind-requiring, event out of all the Guild Events. Even the supposed rebalancing hasn't changed it.

    This event is a very long grind, that nobody likes, we can't just fish with Elegant Anomarods + Elegant Potions + Candy Cane Bait (OR COTD), that stuff is expensive! Literally nobody (save a few) likes the fishing event. Also, now that we ONLY have 4 events/clash, it makes sense to make them 4 events that are widely enjoyed. You know, Cooking, Surgery and Startopia that are at the END of the default clash event schedule. Statistically speaking we will see less of everyone's most-loved events and more of the mundane rudimentary events such as breaking blocks, and more of the painful unnecessary grindy events such as fishing.

    I'm going to keep this thread abrupt because I've made my main points and I think a lot of people can agree with me without an indepth explanation. But if provoked I'll delve much deeper in my replies to posts in this thread.

    Honestly,get rid of every event except for the skill based ones.

    we only need cooking, surgery, startopia and an all new Synthetic event.

    I don't think it should be removed but the point system for this event needs drastic changes.
    May or may not have trolled you in a horrible way

    8h or more it takes to make personal #20. So what was the balance part? pristine lasts longer? How about, no need waste 8h for most boring and most antisocial thing in whole game? Either remove it, or change that we get no items in event or items gives even some kind of points. rn we get more items than fishes i think. What's the point of that?

    Well, first, event must be balanced, since Ubisoft made absolutely nothing with it, pristine give same as year ago, milestones are same as year ago too, so they simply forgot to balance it atleast somehow.

    After we see this balance we could decide, remove fishing or not

    I have to agree with Ilikecats, although I do see where Oldsock is coming from. If you think the fishing event is expensive, the surgery & Startopian clash events are super unaffordable to participate in and should both be cancelled from any planned schedule.

    Yes, fishing fanatics is costly. Yes, the grind is painstakingly monotonous. Yes, most people are discouraged from participating (including myself). Does that mean we should remove it though? I think not; we should rather ask for the clash event to be postponed until they test their fixes out and further nerf the clash event from there.

    I see where you’re coming from, and although I agree to some extent I don’t. I’m voting “No Opinion” because I’m too torn on this topic.
    Leave a positive mark for the world to see.

    double, or potentially triple the point gain from all fishing rods and make the event 4 days, the usual length to my knowledge.

    Fishing takes a ridiculous amount of time compared to other events. We're not complainin' about the cost (besides, surg and star are on the cheaper side of the cost spectrum fyi), we're complaining about the few day's worth of time that we have to give up (compared to the 1 hour for block bashers).


    One thing: Thanks for upping the block drops! Finally!

    Clearly you don't try guild events properly, you even said in your second paragraph this event turned you off from participating. Also surgery and startopia event are balanced with cheaper and more lenient anomalizing tools, that is they use far less anomalizing tools to compensate. Pristines cosf 3,500 for surg and star, but 5,000 for fishing and others.

    My biggest complaint by far is the amount of time the fishing event takes. With the addition of roles and several surgery updates, the surgery event is easily the most affordable. If you're not too lazy to do role quests you can max startopia for FREE (just ask MadameZ).

    My entire point is that this event is not fun because it's so grossly unbalanced, your lack of participation is but another testament to that fact. Because the fishing event has supposedly been rebalanced several times but still remains incredibly unbalanced, it seems far more logical just to remove it altogether.

    ok but the devs did mentioned that they wanted guild events to be more skilled based and the most they did is a rng parkour
