  1. Good morning @Darkje, since we are evaluating these tournaments by hand, it is very important that you just send a mail with your ingame name and the weight of your best fish in text form to tournament@rf4game.com. In the past we had some issues when players send pictures or even a .zip file containing pictures. We do not even need a screenshot since we will check the results in the log files anyway. Example: Tournament: Anaconda Ingame name: JohnDoe Result: Eel, 4,657 kg Regards, Joe
  2. Dear players, We heard and understood your criticism about the way the bonus premium is awarded. Players who had Premium for at least one day or made a gold purchase between the 29th of August and the 3rd of September, which is when the attacks occurred, will receive 7 days of Premium. Everyone else gets 3 days. The bonus will be credited at 12:00 am UTC on September 13th. Your RF4 team
  3. Good morning @penicillyn, thx for your questions. First of all, we like the fact that there are more fishing games being created right now. We know that RF4 isn't for everyone with it's heavy emphasis on simulation. More choice is always good. Regarding your questions: 1) There won't be a roadmap. Even bigger developers struggle with this sort of thing and we certainly learned, that things may take longer than expected. Our philosophy is to talk about content when it is ready or close to being finished. 2)We don't see our model as P2W. There are many players who reached late-game without spending money. We like this free-to-play approach ad we will stick with it. 3)It is not so much an issue of spots not being active, but of spots not being found. We will try to provide a better infrastucture for players to share spots in the future. 4)There will probably be some changes to the skill system in the future as more content is added. Whether those changes will be as drastic I am not able to tell you atm. regards and nice Weekend, Joe
  4. Thank you for participating and best of luck to all of you!
  5. Good morning @Fishnatic, no, I got you It is very tricky for us to ajust the balancing because we have players with very different time investment and experience levels. Some players farm up to 8000 silver a day while others might have an hour to fish after work. We need to try and strike a balance between those extremes. But migration in general is something we are looking at. It should not feel like an off-switch.
  6. Hi @Fishnatic, RF4 will never become a casual game, that is not our style and there are plenty of games out there that provide a more action-oriented approach to fishing. Still we are constantly thinking about balancing certain aspects of the game and migration is certainly one of them. We already rebalanced some water bodies like Belaja and it is not impossible that other places will recieve a similar treatment. kr, Joe
  7. Hey @Rudolf Nansen, concerning the tickets, what I usually do is buy a couple of one-day-tickets and keep them as backup for emergencies. They won't run out until activated. The other questions I can not answer because they are about future content and our philosophy on that is to talk about content when it is ready. One thing I can tell you though is that all of these questions make sense and we are thinking about them as well kr, Joe
  8. Hi @Callaghan1, probably this weekend. The idea is that as many players as possible can use it. We will write an announcement on all official RF4 channels. KR, Joe
