In fact, please consider planning events to overlap the duration and chosen weekly locations of the PvP and Fishing developer events. Please post these events in the in-game events forums and the Community Manager will promote accordingly. Please submit links to event threads which take place in the spotlighted towns, PvP zone or PvE zone.

    Current Crossovers:

    -- Islands of Wonders Monthly Fishing Contest: Don’t miss out on more prizes with this monthly fishing contest in Isle of Wonders! Good luck, Anglers!

    NEXT WEEK'S ROUND OF POTs:
    To aid governors better plan, the next round of POTs to compete (fetid water) will be from Noon to Noon, Friday to Friday, February 26th to March 5th:

    I just checked in a change to Blood Bay. As of next release, anyone who can make it to the top of either volcano in that scene can try looking for the right angles to do some lava fishing.

    Alrighty folks, the new monthly contest rules are in! Please give them a gander :) I've pasted below so anyone involved will see mentions, but they're also in the main post on this tread. Be sure to peruse the second post as well, because it has changed considerably as well:



    Greetings Anglers!
    Welcome to the weekly fishing contest instructions thread! These contests run for 1 month intervals, Friday Noon to Friday Noon CT on the Friday after each monthly Release. We'll announce the winners every Friday immediately after a release during the livestream.

    -- Additional NPC Town/Misc Scene Locations can be suggested, but not all will be added.
    -- The contest will cycle through each registry in the sequence they appear, then loop back again to the beginning. The town registry will be reset/wiped for new entries periodically to ensure only active/interested POTs are within the registry. New additions will appear immediately after the following month's forecasted locations.

    PRIZE INFORMATION:
    -- All prizes will be no-trade. The same account cannot win more than 1 prize category per month, their highest win will only be considered on a monthly basis.
    -- 3rd Place Prizes will change monthly.

    OTHER TROPHIES:
    The remaining 3 trophies (the small ones) are completely reserved now for other contest holders to request as prizes. Upon request, they will be renamed to the contest holder's liking, then distributed to the contest holder for distribution per their criteria presented within their player created fishing event. Only one such request per event holder per month is allowable, with a maximum of 3 trophy types requested each month, and all 3 of the trophies available will be the small ones pictured below.

    PLAYER CREATED FISHING EVENTS:

    Prizes provided by the Community Manager will be available for participants and winners of the Fishing event, but governors, guild leaders and players are welcome to sweeten the pot by providing additional prizes based on objective criteria entirely of their own design. In fact, please consider planning events to overlap the duration and chosen locations of this event to add interesting twists to the objectives. Please post these events in the in-game events forums and the Community Manager will promote them on the Events Page. Event holders can request quick data checks to determine their winners, but not all such requests will be met if the data is too complex or time consuming to determine.

    NEXT MONTH'S (R88) ROUND OF POTs:
    To aid governors better plan, the next round of POTs to compete (freshwater) will be from Noon to Noon, Friday to Friday, March 26th to April 30th:

    Duanor, Near Noreach (@Raven Swiftbow)​

    To predict what locations will be next for the other categories, simply look on the rotation lists below in the next post.

    HOW TO PARTICPATE:
    To participate, players need merely catch trophy fish in any of the locations indicated above within the proper monthly timeframe indicated. The locations will change every month the day after Release Day (always Fridays) at Noon CT, so be sure to pay attention to the announcements for new locations each week! Please do not send your fish to Elgarion via the in-game mail system. Through data logging, he'll be able to determine the winners. SO please hold on to your fish, and feel free to use them in any fashion after the catch.

    Also, apologies to the following folks. Normally you get a bit of a heads up when you're town's active for the contest, but this was a last minute addition since the # of towns per month is larger than what it was per week. Going forward, people will still receive the warning, but they'll have a month to prepare instead of a week. A bit of a silver lining there.

    Sorry guys!

    I really like this monthly change. Also it allows for more chances of the 6 pot’s to end up in the 2 daily fishing bonus towns! Hello Mr. Pacu :D

    @Elgarion you mentioned in the stream that you'll be adding things to the fishing loot will that be in addition to a successful cast as the loot table really doesn't need to be more diluted.
