    So, the HWE will now require fishing-related items?  Is this correct? :(

    I am reading this as a separate Hard Worker Event, possibly a 1 off , to build interest in new feature .

    Thank you.  I just reread the sentence, and I think you are right!  (Late night last night -- bleary eyes and fuzzy brain this morning.) :)

    I did not see it mentioned anywhere that we will get any FXP from fishing this way. Do you know if we will Rowdy?

    Two Questions:

    Will there still be gold mining licenses in the HWE for 1.2 million points and the top 50?


    Also, will any fish xp be earned through this fishing?

    If the 2 HWE  will not run at the same time,should we expect the old one to appear only once a month ? Every 4 fridays instead of 2?

    There will be some aspects of the new feature that gives FXP but not every aspect of it will.

    The GML's will also be in this version of the HWE, to the best of our knowledge.

    @Tigrain (BG1) 
    The scheduling of the two HWE's is not completely clear at this point but it seems likely that the scenario you suggest might be how it will work from now on.  
    However, I cannot give you a definitive answer as yet, sorry about that.

    Thank you Rowdy :)
    That will be helpful as I still need 11 level to reach 61 so I need my FXP and getting it another way will be awesome.

    I plugged in the new jetty times to calculate for my time zone and they appear to be exactly the same.  Unless you are saying you are flip flopping it so that he is now here when he was gone and gone when he was here.  That will be even worse than before for US players

    Any news on the glitches that told us to hold off on upgrades to meadow and warehouse?

    There will now be two separate types of HWE  (the other one won't be replaced, don't worry :smile:  ).  They will not run simultaneously either.
    RR, you are my new best friend -- thanks for the info!!

    Hooray  I can't fish, so that gets me off the hook. No interest in this update whats so ever

    You can also hire someone with dollars and let the boat generate large amounts of profit with the new fish.

    What is value of the highest value product added in the update?, when is it unlocked?

    Item efficiency: all items are only 100% efficient when equipped to specific boats and boat levels. If you equip them on the wrong boat, the item will get a performance penalty, which will be indicated by red textWill we know in advance which item goes with which boat?  Or will we only find out after we have purchased and placed it.?.

    So, we will get some FXP from these boats.......We should also get some from the boats that already exist!

    I interpreted this to mean that they are flipping it.....which, yes, will be less convenient for US players......but more convenient for European ones (which I suspect was precisely the point).

    We send out a group email when the boat returns.  This will be even more helpful if those odd times are the new normal.

    If they made the times of the boat at the Jetty a non-multiple of 24 hours, then it would be Ok for us all once or twice a week...  

    Lets say every 7 hours, then at least we would see it occasionally.

    What other content is added other than items related to deep sea fishing?

    Does this mean that we won't be trying it out on the Test Server?  Is GGS planning to do away with the Test Server?

    @gavinfarms (US1), we do get FXP from the boats we have now if we fish ourselves with them.

  • this is great news, fishing really needed an update! 

    Will any numbers for current fishing be rebalanced? For example, it never made much sense to me why strungeon gave so much more EXP (it is almost not worth fishing anything besides this and the one that gets you the most dollars value)

    Yes, but not if I send Oleg......so every hour that Oleg is on a boat, he is not collecting FXP!
