    1. OK, he contacted gamEVIL and had them email his password. It may be that gamEVIL screwed everyone over and overloaded their help desk. He said it took a few hours and that was yesterday, so if you're having difficulty today, stick with it.

  7. Competitions. I am puzzled as to how someone can catch 140+ of the designated fish in a 2 hour competition? At over a fish per minute (of the right species) I don't see how this is possible.
    I also noticed that a recent competition in a Premium site (10 minute waiting time) was also recently won with a similar number of fish - I would appreciate any comments.

    1. Competitions in premium sites are always on points basis not on number of fishes... can you give the competition number? I'd like to see this for myself.

      Regarding your query, it is possible to catch over a fish per minute. People who do that (except cheaters) usually look for the perfect attack and if it doesn't match that of the intended fish they snap the line. Combined with more than 40% casting and high luck, it is possible to snap upto 2 fishes in a minute at times.

      Delete
    2. I missed out on adding: knowledge of sweet spots makes a difference as well :)

      Delete
    3. OK - I wasn't aware of the perfect attack thing - how does that work?
      Also on the premium sites how do people get around the 10 minute waiting time?
      Not sure which game I looked at - maybe I was mistaken on that one!

      Thanks for the help.

      Delete
    4. I'm gonna use the example of a Red Piranha fishing competition to explain this (partly because I only remember the PA values for this fish well XD):

      Perfect attack values for Red Piranha:
      A Grade & below: 1240
      S Grade: 1264
      SS Grade: 1301
      SSS Grade: 1364 (or something like that)

      Now when you cast out and do a perfect hook on the fish, a damage number is shown on the screen. So for the Red Piranha competition - you will look out for the numbers above which would indicate that you have the right fish. Any other number and you snap the line - it saves time.

      For the premium fishing sites: I don't have an exact answer and everything that I'm saying henceforth is theoretical - There isn't much you can do to work around the wait time except open up all 10 slots and use the right baits. During the full length of the competition, you will be able to cast about 11 times from each slot - so 110 times from all the slots combined.

      Since the competition is on points basis, using the S baits gets you at least an S-grade fish. Lets say you get 200 points per S grade fish and you are able to hook the competition fish between 50-70 times in the competition - that leaves you with points ranging from 10k to 14k. This is assuming that you know the perfect bait, the best sweet spot and have all 10 slots open for fishing.

    5. Great reply - thanks for the time and effort.

      I guess the key is to have a lot of rods other than the main one you use then?

      It also makes me wonder how you can ensure you can make each strike? Do you have to set each fishing spot say one minute apart to give you time to land the previous fish?

      Also you have to reset the spot after each Catch - all takes time!

      Delete
    6. I don't really time anything, I just do a far cast on a ripple around a sweet spot (if I know the sweet spot) or just about any ripple at the end of the range and then move on to the next spot. I have only 6 rods and casting them all usually takes me about 1.5 - 2 mins.

      Its the reeling in that takes time. If you have an FTF rod, that makes the job much easier, fill up the skill bar, spank the fish and reel it in once its down.

      Like I said, the 11 casts per slot in 2 hours is theoretical - assuming you take only a maximum of 10 mins to cast and reel in your fishes from the slot for all casts (which is practically not feasible except when the fish in question is an easy fish) so you might end up making only 10 casts most of the time.

      The key to your wondering is to find a rhythm that suits you - for me it is this: cast all slots possible > reel in first fish> cast from first slot > reel in second > cast second slot and so on (other players might have a different approach which could be better than mine). A point to note here would be to never click on "different fishing site" button after casting or reeling in, that will only lead you to waste time, always use the "choose other spot" button.

  8. I am finding it hard to get C rank combining materials. I am using a variety of
    S-Baits, but not a lot SSS Epics are on the line. Will chum help? Are synthetics the best way to go about it? Any tips would be great!

  9. Hi Thanks for good site and information.
    I have got a high rubber rod upgraded to +4
    is it possible to do FTF with this rod? what is the lowest price rod for doing FTF?
    thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think that rod can ftf, but if it can, it will need to be around+10. Save stars for the start seeker sonic. It's the first start rod able to ftf.

  10. Where do you look on the screen to find the "Perfect Attack" information when you strike a fish.
    Also where do you look to find out what a fishes PA is?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Look up each fish in "fish locations and bait used" thread. The number after the list of baits is the PA. Keep in mind, if you do not get a PA and only an Excellent attack, the numbers will be exactly 50% of the numbers listed on that thread. Also, there are some fish which have the same or similar PA in the same fishing site so be aware of the fish in the area that can confuse you. For example, Sevenband grouper and the regular grouper at black rock beach have the same PA when A rank or less (1300). Not sure if it changes above A rank. Also, there was talk of the PA numbers having changed at Wapo, Riffle, and Fog.

    2. It flashes when you hook the fish and is quickly followed by the "Perfect" sign. Easy to miss because of the 'perfect' sign.

      Check this image out: http://postimg.org/image/gobhzc46l/
      The fish on the line is the Velvet Whalefish whose perfect attack figure is 1160.

      Perfect attack figures for all fishes can be found at http://fishingsuperstar.blogspot.in/2013/07/fish-locations-and-baits-used.html (the first figure following the baits is the PA figure).

    4. Thanks guys - great info.

      You must keep this information printed up and ready to look at for use as soon as a comp pops up ? Or is their info elsewhere on what comps are coming up and what they are going to be?

      Great snapshot Johnson - that number must be on the screen for milliseconds!!

      Delete
    5. Yea Buzz, it is pretty easy to miss that number specially if the fish is being hooked right under the perfect sign.

      There was a timetable of the PST times the competitions are held at and on what basis (size/points/number of fishes) under the questions page but it is missing now, I'll try to see if I can find that list from someplace else. However which fish is going to be the competition fish is random, I haven't seen any kind of pattern there.

      Most people would probably just look up the 'fish baits and locations threads' when the comp starts, it barely takes a minute to get there and get going on the comp. Don't know of anyone who has print outs of the data ^^'

      Delete
    6. Got it sorted today Johnson. Went and caught a few Samchi in the comp using the PA info. Noticed that they aren't always exactly what the PA stat says they are. Samchi was PA 740 and I snapped one off that had a PA in the late 600's. Think it was maybe a B grade fish.

      Do the guys who fish the points comps in the Premium sites have a number of rods available?

      Delete
    7. It would have been a glitch. Any samchi (A grade or lower) would be 740 PA. It is only for the grades above A that the PA changes slightly (for small fishes and drastically for monsters)

  11. I've got a query: have you ever felt that epics in a tank reduce your chance of obtaining an egg? I'm talking in terms of star fishes.

    My experience based on two friends in my list: one with all star tank mostly ends up with me landing two eggs out of 5 fishes landed while the other one who has about 2-4 regular epics (besides ancients) has never left me with an egg out of 80+ attempts. What are your thoughts on this?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. A newcomer like me doesn't have an answer to this Johnson.

      However I kind of fail to see the logic of having epics in your tank anyway - I know your stats increase but upgrading your equipment to the best it can be is surely a better way?

      Delete
    2. Equipment upgrades are the best ways but some special stats are only available through epics or combining. I've never kept any epics in my tanks so I really don't know if they do make much difference.

  12. Hi, out of curiosity I bought an Aqua Emperor rod to test out, upgrade till +11 and combine with another rod and unused equipment plus few of those pearls. Wanna test out those combining before i usey SSF to combine.But to my surprise it 100% failed to FTF and I noticed the red hook turned red in mere 10-15 sec once I start FTF. It only happened with this particular rod. Is it because its a gold rod or is it due to combining items? Anyone that uses AE rod + combi here please share experience?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You are absolutely correct. The reason you see red hook so quickly is because it is a gold rod. Star rods are much better in the time you have before getting red hook and more reliable when FTF.

      Delete
    2. So its kinda sad can't FTF AE rod, actually it has potential but GV really sucks into selling expensive rod at 2million plus and can't FTF much. No wonder my line keeps breaking I thought it was the combining items that caused this. Anyway is it wise to combine rods example STB rod that is star rod with AE a gold rod. Will this effect the star rod FTF?

      Delete
    3. I've tried that on my Twilight +14 and have used gold rods and gold equipment as combining material along with other lower star rods and synthetic materials and my twilight doesn't show a hint of having lost any FTF capabilities.

    4. Thanks. Maybe I'm going to combine STB with AE rod then.

    2. These are very elusive fish. Doglips is correct. Isurus needs Crank. Chum should help, but I find it doesn't. As for Zebra shark, worm is the only bait I have caught it with. Again, use chum 3X S should bring this one in.

      and i think your stat is too low for monsters

    4. for ftf you need at least star seeker sonic as star rod or daybreak as golden rod.

    5. Monster fishes as the ones you named, revive after their health reaches 0. In order to catch them, you have to keep reeling them until the distance of the fish reaches 0m.

    did anyone noticed that there is a huge difference between iphone and andriod

    my stats are
    att 3008
    skill 2819
    con 2053
    luck 127

    my friend's stats are
    att 2920
    skill 2711
    con 1990
    luck 127

    i did FTF for andriod phone and tried FTF on my iphone and i noticed that with andriod device its a 100 percent catching rate for gaint barb but with iphone i can only catch 2 out of 10 gaint barb.

    i feel cheated by this ridiculous game. when iphone users had to try so hard to catch a freakin fish but andriod users can get them easily.

    1. Android users also get new things sooner than iOS. Updates come through quicker, so when things are good, we've got them sooner. When things are bad, we can warn others sooner. See the comment below for more details about being warned XD

  26. Why is there an exclamation point
    When you hook a fish?
    Does it mean something or isit just a new
    way to point out an pefect attack?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is just a new update gamEVIL has added. I learned a long time ago to not update until I have to XD. The exclamation point impedes the ability to see the PA number, which impedes the ability to know what fish you have hooked. Shame on gamEVIL for inhibiting our ability to play the game. It really affects those that do competitions. Nothing to worry about, but quite a pain none the less.

    Then ive got another question/issue,
    I dont fish every day so when I log in and
    check my "mailbox" it takes up to 20 to 30 minutes
    to empty it.
    Sometimes I dont even log in because of te mail.
    Are they aware of this, will it be addressed. ....
    Or isnt this the right place for this topic?

    1. This is definitely the right place for this question. It is something that many others find irritating as well. I don't fish everyday either, but I am always on several times a day to send gifts, answer requests, feed in friends tanks, etc. I empty the mailbox every time I log in. If you do it every 3 or 4 hours, you will not spend so much time on it.

  28. I'm getting quite fed up with upgrades failing at the moment. I must have done six or seven now with each one failing - and using lots of stars to maintain my current levels.

    1. Don't try more than 3 times in a row.
      Try when you first log in.
      Use the rod, to get it's durability down, before trying to upgrade.

      That's about all that I've heard of over the years. I'm sure I'm missing some other tip, but hopefully this will help.

    1. Hi Roe - Your stats don't mean anything v the fish stats. As your stats increase your powers to catch increase as well.
      What rod are you using?

      Delete
    2. Perfect attack - when you strike the fish fast enough to gat a "Perfect" on the screen you will also see a red number flash up on the screen. This is the fishes "Perfect Attack" value. Your "Perfect" strike will take 20% off this value (i.e. take it down to 80% health). If you only make an "excellent" strike then you will only take off 10% of the fishes health (i.e. 90% left). you then continue fishing to reduce the remaining health. If you make a "Skill Attack" when the green bar at the bottom of the screen is full then you will also reduce the health of the fish - the faster you do this the higher the damage.

      I am currently on 3,500 STR and it still takes me three full skill bars and then a bit more to beat the Giant Barbs.

      Delete
    3. The 'Gold' rods mostly don't perform as well as the star rods - plus they cost much more to repair.
      I presume you are using FTF and that you have that well sorted.

      FTF is a technique that everyone talks about but it does need to be done properly with the higher ranked fish.

      DinkDink could maybe answer you better on the pluses and minuses of the AE rod.

    1. SSS and DB's FTF success rate depends on the power of the fish you are trying to catch. The more powerful the fish you are trying to catch is the more you need to upgrade.
