Probably. No idea why though as I don’t think there’s an black market for stuff like Fortnite or PUBG. It’s still a mostly solitaire game even in the online tourneys. I do them to try and get more fish bucks to get better/different gear. Plus the cost is minimal and I’d be fishing anyway. I haven’t tried the carp, but the bass one is easy enough to jump in and out of.
I saw those Carp numbers and I too thought it was insane.
Do they reward people outside of the top 3 or top 10? If they don’t, they should.
Everyone gets something. I’ve only gotten one top 3.
Last week I was 3rd in Carp, 10th in Bass, 9th in Predator and didn’t play Match and went from level 70 to 74 and got 78,000 TP I think.
It’ll give away my Steam/FSW name but I’m going to check what my carp score is right now. It’s the highest I’ve ever caught.
4th place with 850lbs 12oz.
I refuse to believe anyone can catch 975.
Edit: I had a trophy carp on my line when the timer ran out, so I can believe 900. (I should have 900, but I just couldn’t get him in quick enough)
Want to hear something funny? Until your postings today I thought those weights were for a single fish LOL.
This looks good, more lakes as well and more sponsored gear I see Salmon there as well, wonder if we are getting fly fishing.
Do you guys use a controller with this game? Do you think it’s more fun with one?
Nope use a mouse and keyboard, not thought to try a gamepad
Mouse and keyboard work just fine for me.
A career mode! One of the major things everyone wanted, me included. For free! Can’t even complain.
So I see this is on sale, how would this game work as
- 5 of us LAN party every winter. Could we set up a hour tournament when we need to slow things down for a while.
- If some of us played the game lots and others only played during the LAN party could it be set up balanced?
- Have no earthly idea.
- Sure, if everyone agreed to use the same stuff.
Woo jumped to 2nd in Predator tourney. Learned how to Walleye, even though it’s 100% unrealistic and not at all how Walleye are caught.
Almost got the top spot, but had 4-5 hooks that were not correct. And I had my line tension wrong the whole hour…and I have no attempts left, but I’ll settle for 2nd any day.
My weekly online tournament summary:
Bass - 13th (bleh), 55,000 fake dollars (career bucks, whatever those are), 15,500 shopping points (TP)
Match - 8th (not a fan of this), 80,000 fake bucks, 18,000 TP
Carp - 6th, 90,000 fake money, 19,000 TP
Predator - 2nd! 500,000 fake dollars, 22,500 TP.
Plus each one gave 10k XP.
So just that pushed me from level 90 to 95, gave me $725,000 “career earnings” and 75,000 in-game store points.
Worth doing? Sure, if you can pull off top 10’s.
oh wow - nice jop! Next rain day I’m loading up.
I mean it is a huge time sink, though. The 2nd place Predator tournament took me all 3 attempts to get into the top 10 (I learned the magic trick to catching only walleye about 10 minutes into that), so that was 3 hours.
I also did all 3 carp tourney attempts, 3 more hours.
I did all 3 bass attempts, 3 more hours.
I did the match play one twice, 2 hours.
So all of that was 11 solid hours of pixel-fishing.
So career mode is out on Thursday along with 3 new free lakes and a massive update, 50 odd sponsors, new fish and new gear.
Additionally there is a new DLC the Giant Carp Pack available to purchase as well.
