When i started playing RF4 it was still in russian and there where almost no guides out for it yet. I had to figure out where all the fish where and what bait they would like and what depth they would be and so on. After a wile i had found some nice spots for the fish that i wanted to catch that day. Made some decent silver, caught some nice trophy's made some friends. By no means this game was ever casual friendly, i spend hours and hours learning the lake. Broke my line so many times, first time casting with a spinning rod and i broke my real. This game has made me rage quit more than i can count. But then i calm down, think of new ways to fish and go back at it.
Now with the new update all the fishing spots have changed, i basically have to map all the lakes again. Was i happy with this at the start?, not really, i was kinda pissed about it. But then i calm down, think of new ways to fish and go at it. Now i found some really nice spots and im making more silver than i did before. And im just using my trusty float set up and sometimes i use a feeder on the side.
Now to me this mapping the lakes, taking notes, finding those spots that work for you, is what RF4 is all about. For me its not about looking at youtube to watch the "easiest way to get silver on this and that map ". And that wouldn't work in the first place if the migration feature would work like the devs want it to work. And i think the migration works better now. I no longer go to a spot and catch carp all day everyday.
So i think allot of people that are complaining now and are demanding entertainment from the developers (in a really disrespectful way) don't really understand what RF4 is about. I think these fishers need to calm down a bit, drink a cup of tea and and ask them selfs: Is this game really for me?
I just wanted to post this, cos i was getting sick off all these people complaining and demanding.
To the devs: Good work guys, i really like the new update and thanks for all the time you put in to it.
