    Fishing Contest

    Why is it that a 495 length fish is caught with in mere minutes of the contest starting? It would seem that there is something funky with the RNG of the fish. Does this happen every week? It has the last two weeks that I have been back. It makes it really tough on the people that can't be there at the start to win. Why hold a 12 hour contest if the first 495 fish wins and it is handed out in minutes of the start? Why not allow ties and why not randomize the fish more so that maybe the last guy fishing has a chance to win too?

    It lasts 12 hours but you only can participate a small section so that everyone can get in on it. RNG is RNG, there isn't anything funky going on with it. Every week someone gets a lucky fish to win.
    Epic Erenor Scepter - 856 Magic Att, 733 gimped DPS.
    Epic Erenor Katana - 815.3 DPS.
    Epic Erenor Bow - 693 DPS... worse than the gimped weapon even though it's a primary weapon.
    "Balance" . . . This doesn't even take in to account the 978.4 epic erenor nodachi, or 978 mAtt staff.

    Have you ever participated in it? The winner this week so far caught the fish 8 minutes into the contest. I believe something similar happened last week.

    To win the contest you not only need to catch the best fish but also to be the FIRST one to do so. That's why most people (I know) participate within the first hour. It's not like the chance is better within the first hour, but there are simply way more fish handed in.

    At least this is what seems to happen on NA.
    On EU the situation is different (the way you would want it to be I guess) :
    #1 - 6h01min
    #2 - 9h21min
    #3 - 1h14min
    #4 - 2h20min
    #5 - 3h14min
    #6 - 5h35min
    #7 - 6h44min
    #8 - 0h52min
    #9 - 2h10min
    #10 - 4h50min
    #11 - 5h28min
    #12 - 1h19min
    #13 - 2h17min
    A child of song, a child of rage
    Abandoned in another age
    Now ancient hate and rhymes that bind
    Make paradise a tomb divine
    And demons trapped in beauty’s thrall
    Hunt those who heed the bloodsong’s call.

    There are just not that many people fishing. Curious that the EU results seem to be more random.
