    It was brought up in a live stream, apparently some people's names with special characters break the leader board IIRC.

    Hoping they are looking into making the system more robust so it can be expanded as more contests are added, like pumpkin growing contests and such.

    Would be nice if there could be a competition of sorts between some towns to be listed on the top of the leader board as the location where the largest X was caught/grown/etc.

    One would think that fixing whatever it is with "special characters" breaking the leader board shouldn't be a mammoth task... o_O
    Please give it some more thought, @Elgarion ;)

    I'll be announcing a bounty concept this week or next, which would be the hunting tourney you're hoping for ;) It won't be a player bounty system, but could include bounties in PvP zones as well as PvE zones.

    Our data searches cannot be exposed, but I'd imagine improvements to the leader boards will be coming.

    I'll remind the team it's broken and also suggest adding a location column.

    I'll bring up the topic of a Pumpkin leader board and suggest location be a column as well.

    Hi @Elgarion ,

    Sorry, forgot to tag you in my original post that got buried. Can you please add the crossover event in Fallin' Green to the main post for this week? Pax rings have already been sent out for round one (actually worked out well that more people didn't know about round one, didn't realize that there was a very easy to catch minimum size of amberjack :confused:).


    CROSS-OVER EVENT in Fallin' Green for Week 21. Please see the Dedicated Forum Post for full instructions. In brief though,

    1: One (1) Common Pax Ring will go to the person catches the SMALLEST Amberjack Mackerel before Sunday, September 27th at 21:00 PST

    2: One (1) Bait Squid will go to whoever catches the LARGEST Swordfish before Wednesday, September 30th at 21:00 PST

    3: Five (5) Blood Leeches will be mailed to whoever wins the CATNIP GAMES WEEKLY FISHING TOURNY WEEK 21 GOLDEN TROPHY if the fish that wins it is caught in Fallin' Green.


    Fallin' Green is a POT nested in Ardoris, First Wagon on the right from the North (default) Entrance or by Boat Connection from Beran's Reach :

    *Amberjack Mackerels will be disposed of unless specifically requested back. All Swordfish submitted will be mailed back to whomever catches them once contest is resolved. Sorgin Txakal is not eligible for winning either category 1 or 2 above.

    Alrighty folks, I've updated the main post with the new contest info:

    Largest FETID WATER Fish (Town):
    -- Rules: Must be caught from one of these towns. Governors can request a loaner water conversion statue to meet water requirements.

Please submit links to event threads which take place in the spotlighted towns, PvP zone or PvE zone.

    Current Crossovers:

    Hi everyone I started to fish a little while ago, and thought what a wonderful idea to fish with a chance of a reward . Here is the thing, I do not understand if/ or where we need to send off the chosen fish. For me at the moment I would be so very happy to receive a little participate fish trophy for fishing in the named above towns.

    You no longer have to send your fish in to qualify for the weekly fishing contest as Elgarion can no look up the data directly and send winners and participation trophies usually on the following Monday. For crossover events the drop off location will be specified by the event coordinator.

    FYI the Lava portion of this week's event is actually in Blackblade Pass, not Blackblade Passage. Sorry for the typo :( I'll update the event page and the update as well.

    PaxLair is proud to part of the Catnip Weekly Fishing Tournament.
    (Freshwater) will be from Noon to Noon, Friday to Friday, October 9nd to October 16th:
    As part of the tournament, we will be running a side contest. Our challenge will be a little different, we're going Vegas to do a Price Is Right mashup.

    DROP BOXES:
    Located at the PaxLair fishing shack, straight ahead off the docks, the first row lot you see. There are chests out front, once you're ready to put your catch in, choose an empty pack and place your fish directly in. You will only be able to add, not remove, so take care. Please note the separate Pike Box.

    NORMAL CONTESTS:
    1 of a kind - Largest length - 3 Prize ticket
    2 of a kind - Closest length total to 2.7 - 2 prize tickets
    3 of a kind - Closest length total to 8.2 - 3 prize tickets
    Small Straight - 4 different types lowest length total - 3 prize tickets
    Large Straight - 5 different types highest length total - 4 prizes tickets

    Special add-on - Smallest Pike - 6500 crowns, 500k gold & more. Sponsored by Engel, a citizen of PaxLair
    **** Please note smallest length pike entered here is separate and can not be used in the above Normal Contest****
    RULES FOR NORMAL CONTEST
    The same fish may be used to achieve different combos.
    Ties will split the prize tickets, with adjustments made so it's even amounts.
    Can only win once per hand.

    PRIZES:
    Once the winners are announced they will be asked to come to PaxLair, where they will be able to choose a box for each ticket won. Each box will be chosen 1 at a time on a rotating basis until all tickets have been cashed in. There will be more boxes than tickets. This is fishing, there will be stinky prizes hiding in there.



    Any question or comments please get in touch with @Sean Silverfoot

    Attention @Elgarion

    @Sean Silverfoot
    "Earliest turn in times by chest log" - in practice, this would be a huge hassle for all the fishermen - as well as yourself.
    We fishermen are not fond of running to put fish in boxes while we're fishing.
    Settle ties by earliest caught time (it's on every fish), not by when put in the box. That way fishermen can hold on to what they have and not worry about beating someone to the chests. Plus, you will have WAY, WAY, WAY fewer fish to sort thru. Win/Win ! :)

    P.S. I applaud and thank you for having this SpinOff ! ( I confess, I fish )..:p

    SpinOff's are becoming very, very popular among town owners/residents/fishermen as they are a great way to interact with each other and actually win something if you aren't the ONE person to catch the week's biggest dang fish....

    ** Yes, I'm looking at you, Catnip - for NOT having 2nd and 3rd place prizes in EVERY category of the weekly fishing tournament.
    It doesn't have to be something spectacular or costly for you, and you have tons of stuff to choose from for prizes.....*

    You're missing a great opportunity and I really hope that @Elgarion notices the increased attention the tournament has received since these SpinOff's began appearing to give everyone a "decent" chance of winning something...

    I also think that chest log shows only days and not times and may not be that useful. Especially if people add things to chest multiple times during the fishing week.
    I think for ties you could split the price tickets between the players or decide them by roll. I mean if someone gets the perfect combination on Saturday, it would be nice if others had still a chance.
