  1. Hi @lliggy, no values of the current equipment have been changed. Some values for rods are displayed more precise now. Any major changes to equipment will be documented in the patchnotes.
  2. Hey @mqg, thank you for asking as the patchnotes could not provide enough detail and context for this change and are not designed for that purpose. The average amount of silver the players generate in game has increased significantly from the time the original prices were designed. In order to preserve the progression blancing we intend RF4 to have, these prices needed to be updated. This increase is bound to the level of the items, as high level players earn exponencially more silver than low to mid level players. So the intention behind a decision like this is to preserve the ingame economy that plays a big part in RF4. If the intention was to just produce more income, there would surely be smarter and more effective ways to do it. We also decreased the gold prices for items as them beeing too high was a prominent feedback from the community. Service games that keep developing alongside the community playing it, need to try to strike a balance between unpopular decisions that are nescessary to preserve the vision of the game, while also trying to incorporate as many wishes by the playerbase as possible. This is not easy because these things often clash. There will most defenetely be more unpopular but nesceccary rebalancings in the future. We will try our best to explain our decisions as transparent and open as possible.
  3. Fair enough guys. Many of the current gameplay decisions were influenced by the the massive abuse. Getting rid of this, even by a radical solution seems worth it to us. It opens up a lot of possibilities. And for the stuff honest players lost we will find a workaround.
  4. @redbeard420, getting rid of a large number of cheaters might actually give us some more room when it comes to balancing.
  5. @Pettos, same answer really. We will look for ways to make that available again for community events or content creators.
  6. @mazza27, I can not tell you atm. We had to make a decision we knew people would hate. We got that over with. Now it is time to find ways to bring back the positives within this new system. You know we love gifting a newbie a rod. We will look for ways.
  7. Selling high level equipment, illegally farmed by a bot account, for lower prices puts honst players at a serious disadvantage. Imagine how long you would need to farm a venga reel legit in comparisson to somebody willing to abuse fraud. They get the good Equip way earlier and therefore have an impact on leaderboards and weeklys.
  8. Hi @mazza27, we knew before that this was a horribly unpopular descision. We also know that it makes the premium service less attractive. The dilemma is, that there is an already huge, ever growing number of players commiting fraud on a level that is not just impacting us financially, but also committing fraud against any player who takes his / her posotion in the leaderboard serious. We can not allow that. We are probably too late with this decision but that is because it was not an easy one. Joe
  9. Hey, Rods, reels, tools and assesories bought with silver can not be send any longer. Regards

  11. Hi @colaquente_rf4, sry for the late answer. 1. Just regarding the time of releasing the content, they are all the same. 2. There are feeders better suited for rivers and it says so in the describtions. Every feeder can be used in rivers though. 3. They are not better for some species, but for some conditions like type of water body or longer casting. 4. The star rating influences a lot of things. The higher the rating: - the less visible the feeder is to fish - the better aerodynamics it has got (longer casting) - the longer and more intensive it will attract fish to the spot - the less tear it causes on the line
