    ahh thanks Levo I must have misunderstood what it meant. I have fallen into the water by accident in the past while fighting a fish and lost that fish which is why I thought it was opening an exploit for players to jump in the water while fighting a hard fish to get in.

    I do agree with all you said. Fighting a fish for 8h is very unrealistic and yes something should be done about it. I work on facts and the fact is 8h irl is 8 days in game and fighting a fish for that length of time would be impossible unless its a super fish and a super human fighting it, Both would die irl. Angling stress occurs during the fish's fight after hooking. The vigorous physical exertion causes lactic acid wastes to build up in the fish's muscles. This in turn leads to blood acidification which can disrupt the metabolism of the fish. .The longer a fish is played, the more lactic acid is built up in the fish. When your fighting a fish its not that it gets tired, its because of the lactic acid build up which stops the fish from fighting. This is why when landing a fish it has to be done in the fastest way possible with causing as less stress to the fish as possible. Once you have landed that fish after a long fight its important that you release the fish with care and making sure that after a long fight the fish can swim under its own steam. If you fight the fish for too long chances are that the fish will die, either on the hook or while releasing it. I don't know how your going to combat these times of landing a big fish but I suppose one way is extending the times for days so 1 day is longer than 1 real life hour, maybe 1 game day = 2 real life hours and after 1 game day the fish is tired enough to reel in ,but this would open up the problem of people using light gear to land massive fish just because they know that all they have to do is keep that fish on the hook for 1 game day.

    I just read the latest Patch notes and its good that the Devs have focused a little on Kouri to bring it back. But there is one change that I think is open to player exploit. - Fixed. When moving to the spawning point of the water body after the character falls into the water, the fish that was on the line at this moment was counted as caught and placed in the keepnet. Players will find areas where they can fall / jump into the water and use this when they are struggling with a fish just so they can land it quick and also keep the fish. I would have kept this as it was , Where if you fall in the water then the fish is lost or maybe change it to " there is a small chance you could have the fish in your keepnet when you are relocated at the spawn area " People have exploited this before when they have a fish that's going to spool them just so they don't break any gear or lose any tackle. People with fish on that is going to spool them use ways to keep their gear from breaking they use. ALT - F4 ( nothing can be done about this ) Change Maps. Jump / Fall in the water. IRL if your fishing and either fall or jump in the water with a fish on there is a high chance of losing that fish if the water is deep enough where you can not get a secure footing. I have in the past fallen into the water while fighting a fish for some time ( I think I had no chance landing it any way ) on Ladoga ( finger point ) and accidently fallen into the water. In a way i'm glad that I fell in because I think the fish would have spooled me but on the other hand I was a little annoyed because I didn't know if after fighting for a while longer I would have got the fish in ( I still had roughly 80m line left ). You could however make it where, if you fall into the water and it exceeds 1.5m depth ( roughly 5 foot ) you will lose the fish, But if the water is 1.5m or lower in depth you can still fight that fish and once landed or lost you then return to spawn. I just think with falling into that water while fighting a fish and returning to spawn with the fish landed has just opened an exploit for players to use.

    This is great news for the game if its more focused on helping the players to earn silver while fishing. The object of the game is to catch fish and earn silver to buy better gear but as it stands at the moment legit players are having a hard time banking any silver when using heavy gear like an Everest , the problem is that your not catching big enough fish to warrant using such a reel because the repair cost is so expensive. 5-6K silver to repair the mech at 29% on an Everest is ludicrous considering how long it takes a player without cheats or hacks to earn such an amount. I repaired all 3 of my Alpha 8K's ( Mechs & Friction Brake ) for the same money. I do understand that its a bigger reel and people ( Fanbois ) will argue that your catching bigger fish on them reels than the Alpha's. This is not the case at all you can land the same fish on the Alpha than what you can on the Everest it just takes longer and I also might add with less damage. The cost of the Friction brake imo on the Everest is about right but the repair cost of the Mech is way to high and the amount of damage it takes is a little too high as well. I think ( and this is just my opinion ) that the wear should be roughly 10 - 20% less and the cost should be 30 - 50% less, this would make the Everest a more viable reel upgrade from the Alpha. At the moment on my stream ( when I do stream now as this has been cut right down from 6 hours a day 7 days a week to 3 or 4 hours when I can be bothered ) when people ask me my opinion on going for an Everest moving up from an Alpha I will tell them to give it a miss and save a little more silver and opt for the Beluga equivalent as in my experience with the Everest is that your fishing just to pay for repairs on that reel and if your lucky have a little silver left over. I know I have bitched about this game in the past ( on and off my stream ) but I have also defended it too ( in cases where I think the game has it right ). The main factor of this game is the economy ( what your earning while fishing ) this in my opinion is way off and on average most players will earn roughly 100 silver per hour. This is fine at lower levels but when you get to a higher level with heavier gear that needs to increase ( and its only my opinion again ) to around 250 - 300 per hour given the cost of repairs to heavier gear and the cost of the next upgrades form your current gear. I used to love streaming this game and conversing with my viewers along with helping out low level players with gear and baits but with recent patches and adjustments has made this impossible for me to do. I do hope that what LOG has stated above is more aimed towards players having more fun while fishing and earning silver while doing it, people don't mid the grind to level up ( some players love it ) and I don't mind needing 19 million XP to hit level 40 but I do mind spending hours fishing for little silver and catching 60g ruffes on 4/0 hooks while using livebaits when the hook has been in the water for over 1 hour real time. To be honest I am unsure if I am going to purchase any more premium when mine runs out at they way the game stands at this moment ( I only bought it for my streams so I could give away items ). Hopefully they now focus on the players instead of coming up with ways for you to burn away your hard earned silver.

    I too have had a frustrating time trying to net a fish while trolling, Mine has been small fish to the back of the boat which has been reeled all the way in but my landing net would not net it , as if its too close for the net to grab it but on the other hand I can't seem to lift the fish on the boat as well, after about 3 or 4 mins on messing around ( lowering the fish back in the water , letting line back out so I can try and reel in from another angle ) it is annoying but I do get it in after a lot of messing around. Maybe the fish is getting stuck on or under the boat which I might add could happen irl too, i'm not defending the game but because there is a possibility of it happening irl I do tend to allow such things to happen. I know the game is still in development and no i'm not pushing the " its in EA BS side of it " the is a lot wrong with this game but on the other hand they have got a lot right too, its just finding that balance to balance it out which takes time.

    this is what I originally said. For example a rod with a test of 30g - 80g would cast a 35g lure further than a rod with a test of 50g - 100g .  I have no idea if you misunderstood what I said or I just worded it wrong but I thought it was self explanatory. I was meaning that your rod plays the biggest part when casting even though your reel also plays a part too. I wasn't talking about different LP reels with a different tests, but I would imagine the same rule applies to that too as they don't have a maximum test only a minimum so if you put a 17g lure on a reel with 3.5g it wouldn't cast it as far as a reel with a 2g test, I knew this already.

    We can both post things to prove our arguments, however I did my own test and I found the rod with the lightest test casted the 17.5g lure further than the one with the heavier test. Both used same line and same lure I have magnified how much line is left on the spool. As you can see the rod on the right has less line on it which means more line is out. I used a full powercast on each rig to get maximum distance. And even though the rod on the right is slightly smaller it still produced a longer cast. so as you can see that my comment about the rod playing the biggest part when casting was right test it yourself the way I just did and you will see the result is the same. This Rod This Rod Length 2m Length 2.1m Test 15 - 50g Test 35 - 130g I was quite happy to give you the benefit of the doubt because it is something I had never tested or think of testing until you tried to make me look foolish by showing it on your stream. But as you can clearly see the lighter test rod threw the same lure further than the heavier test rod.

    With what you said I looked at some info on the with what you said I looked at the info on my LP reel and then others in the shop just in case mine was a cheapo and had less performance. If you look the LP reels they have no maximum test just a minimum which this one says from 2.9g so the heavier the lure the further it will cast the same as a spinning reel does. So the rod does play a major part too when casting light lures but the heavier the lure the further it will cast just like it does on the spinning reels. I have just tested this with Rod 20 - 60g test Trident Shuttle from 3.8g Lure ( spinner ) 7.5g didn't cast that far Lure ( Spinner ) 18.5g casted nearly twice as far Lure ( Spoon ) 27g casted over twice the distance as the 7.5g. Tried my black edition caster with a 12 - 60g test and it casted the 18.5g spinner a lot further than the 20 - 60g rod and even further than the 27g lure.

    Nice I might just try that for fun too . I mainly use Spinning reels irl when spinning and casters for things like sea fishing but I have also used them on fresh water as well for a more controlled cast, I feel that caster give you just a little more control when casting and fighting fish.

    I didn't say you was guessing and with your answer I would have thought you tested it too I just said it didn't make sense but then thinking about it, that with less pressure to be applied by your thumb and a heavier lure it might just well be the case and that you could well be right too .
  11. Azorees

    Other

    now that just doesn't make sense. because the lure weight exceeds the test of the reel by around 3 times surely they tested the reels test for maximum weight for the best cast. I would have thought using a rod with a 10- 30g test and a LP reel with again a 10 - 20g test would produce a maximum cast when casting a 17g lure. Also I would have thought using a heavier lure means you need to apply less pressure by your thumb when casting which might be the case so yes after thinking about it you could be right.
  12. Azorees

    yes I have and even though your low profile plays a part its not as big as the rods part as I explained before.. Its all to do with the flexibility of the rods tip as I said a 30g - 50g test would cast a light lure of 35g further than a rod with a test of 50g - 100g. Also fixed spool ( spinning reels ) will cast your lure even further than any casting ( Multiplier ) reel for spinning, simply because the line has more freedom to travel and you don't need your thumb touching the line to stop a birds nest forming.

    Its not your reel that plays the biggest part when casting out lures its the rods test, the lighter the test and the longer the rod would enable you to cast light lures further than a shorter rod and also a rod with a test that exceeds the lure weight. For example a rod with a test of 30g - 80g would caste a 35g lure further than a rod with a test of 50g - 100g .

    No not really just like irl your setup would be as follows from strongest to weakest , Rod , Line , ( leader if you have one on ) reel. Your reel is the strongest component and rods thake the brunt of the strain so even if you rod is only just heavier than your line as in your gear your rod is going to take all that pressure. The only way to stop that happening with a setup like yours is to be careful on the drag setting as your reel is 3.5KG stronger than your rod. You can fish with a setup like that but awareness of you drag setting is needed as too much drag will kill your rod on a setup like this, this would also be the case irl too. I don't think this is the games fault or a bug I do think its a user fault and the game is not to blame here. Your rod is 5.5KG Your line is 5.4KG Your Reel is 9KG and your leader was 11.6KG This setup is a disaster waiting to happen even in real life you would not fish this way. The game saw your line and bypassed the leader the problem was your line was only 0.1KG weaker than your rod as I said before your rod takes all the force Then transfers to your leader and then line and then reel. Your reel is the strongest link in your setup and I think you just turned up the drag too high hence the user fault. As I said your rod should be the strongest , then your line Then Leader then your reel, but your rod is only 0.1KG stronger than your line. Even if your line was a few KG under the power of your rod, there is stall a chance of breaking your rod if your not careful. Just because you put a 11KG leader on does not make you rig into an 11KG setup, your rig will only be as strong as your weakest component which in this case 5.4KG your line. Rods are always the strongest component even irl but not by just 0.1KG normally quite a few KG in difference. ever wondered how people get for example land a 20LB fish in on a 7LB reel and 6LB line its because of 2 factors 1. The rod is the strongest component by a few LB's at the very least and 2. they have enough line to play that fish to tire it out and always fine tuning the Friction Brake but not too much to put to much pressure on the rod as this is the thing taking all the power. Even with your rod being the strongest by only a few LB there is a good chance of snapping it if your not careful. The more you keep your rod bend the more pressure it takes, which is why you never see people pointing the rod at the fish when reeling in and letting the line and reel take all that power

    Even though your line is the weakest point I think ( and its only an educated guess ) that your rod will still take the brunt of impacts and the strain when fighting a fish, This is the usual case irl too which is how you see people get in big fish on light line and reel. Also your reel is 9KG so I think you had your drag turned up too high maybe. I'm not 100% sure if that's the case but normally when I put line on a rod its more than 1 or 2 KG below the rods load capacity and if my reel is the strongest I always make sure I keep my drag low and only turn it up when needed while making sure the tension bar stays out of the red, unless i'm messing around for fun with a rod I don't care about.
