Thanks Thrall for seeing what i mean. I wasn't trying to be mean in any way, just pointing out in a moment of much frustration that the Christmass event could have been done in a better way to fit the idea of something special. To make my post constructive not just critique with no solution, i say my opinion about what we could get to be more satisfying: a very nice gift to the players would have been to make 70% of the boxes have random item worth of 5 gold, 29% worth of 8 gold or close to that and one box of 10 gold and one 15. A bit spread and 100% chance to get as long as you put in the time and effort to farm the bags. To make it a bit more challenging the boxes could be tied to a certain fish species like Chinese sleeper or Roach for example. Ofc this is just an idea, not that i "demand" anything. Also, Lockhead, the post was obviously ironical. Ofcourse i can fish anywere else. I just thought , as implied in my idea above with the gold value bags, that recieving a hook or 50 dough of some type as a christmas "gift" is a bit low considering how the game gets more and more punishing for the players (map prices over 50-60silver, boat cost new map 90+, costs of pva over 100 for 2-3 days of fishing amber ) and i gave as an example me being lvl 41 and having under 200 gold per hour or close to that in the best perfect situation i ever got. You can see how repair prices have changed lately.i even went out of my way to buy gold since i saw the game is going full head on against me with the bite rate/income so i bough reel and rods with real cash, supporting the game. The outcome was very much underwhelming since the fish i got didn't change and after 3 months of buying some items i am yet to recover their worth in silver, maybe half of next year at best will acchieve that. Profits? thats a dream. Many of you were used to the older game state were maybe the fish biterate was way better, many abuse the game as i see with UL telesticks catching 10+kg fish even 20kg. You think i can't do that? i play games for over 20 years, i know my way around games, i know were and how to get the means to exploit a game in any way you may imagine. Yet here i am not only keeping it fair and clean, but also spending money thus proving my honesty. Don't you think it was easy for me just to shutup and start cheating like others do? C'mon man, i am not posting comments for the reason to be mean to someone, just trying to point out things that clearly RF4 team doesn't know. Probably they base their actions regarding game changes on opinions of older players that already achieved good results and have geared up . That doesn't reflect at all the game experience new or medium time players have . at all. peace.
