    Looking at those figures, I can see why I'd think the figures for lobster and salmon were so odd compared to those of Tuna... and apparently Herring. The figures seem to back up my experience, whether that's what was intended is another matter.

    If you look at the  'minimum time' for Tuna and Herring and compare it to those of Lobster, Cod, Salmon and Swordfish, it does seem rather off-kilter.

    Thanks for digging up the information though!

    I found FHW's numerical data in Hungary.
    but, these data are written in MS seconds.
    so, I tried to make a table using these figures. :)
    I think that the calculated figures have some errors.(may by 30 to 60min).

    thank you !

  • A bit hard to plan in advance with the HWE for fish when no spot open to get a particular variety for over 3 resets

    was on lobster with timer at 10 points per second with 20 hours on timer and unloaded more lobster to push timer over 24 hours. but when timer counted down below what should have been 24 hours it dropped to zero and moved on to next crate. leaving me with the rest of my fleet still harvesting lobster .  timer does not save any more then 24 hours if pushed over that you lose 24 hours worth of the time

    Yea, mine went from 3 hours to 2 minutes.    Everyone seems to be at speed 9.

    .

    That's what happened to me with cod.  :(

    I don't remember jumps like this happening during the first event... but maybe I was just more lucky then with types of fish that were needed.

    lobster? game must run different on your server compared to GB

    i tested lobster in the first FHWE and a friend tested it in this one and going to 10 will drop you to minutes (and we were both adding over 1k the required number for level 10) - as you'd expect in hardworker

    i tested cod this time around, on level 9 only needing 28 to go to 10, so dumped 1,300 cod in to see if it would run level 10 for hours, but sure enough, it dropped to minutes as i expected

    the numbers ive been seeing (of types ive fished) are similar to the Figures sheet posted a few comments back, and as that shows (tho in hungary not GB but same here) there's no way to get lobsters to run that long on our server

    anytime you decide to take HWE to lvl 10, you better be prepared with a ton of product to boost the time. HWE has always been this way, it is no secret and FWE is no different. I calculate each level and be sure I have enough goods to push to next level and build time just enough to next level and so on... going to lvl 10 is the toughest especially if you are not prepared! the silo let's you know how much you need to hit the next level, so if you are not prepared for lvl 10, don't harvest another boat!  (yes I know the drop in time is dramatic, but that is how the silo works. been there)

    moral to this is if you are pushing at 10pts/s with 20 hours... let the timer count down a good bit, then add more lobster/product.  don't think I have ever had anything run for 24 hours straight. thanks for the info.

  • This is my first attempt on the hard working fish-packing!
    It went smooth to begin with ,lots of oysters and salmon , easy peacy
    Now i am beginning to wonder where in the game the herrings is hiding ??
    I'v got 5 really nice spots with shellfish and 1 with sword ,salmon and ...i don't know it looks like cod 
     It has been like this since yesterday .... i even tried to send the boats out on random but no herring anywhere??
    Is it supposed to be like that ..that i cant be sure to go for the fish i need when i need them? 
    If i have posted in a wrong spot SORRY i'v been reading a lot in her but this was the best place up to now
    Happy farming every on 


    ....thank you!

    @HipLYS (SKN1) the holes show up randomly either after 24 hours or you clean out the fishing hole. The herring show up with Tuna... many people are having trouble with the right holes showing up just to get started with the FHW so you are lucky you have been able to participate in the event...

    Keep trying to fish out holes which will help new holes to show up  sooner is all I can say.  I need a tuna/herring hole and none to be found at the moment... hoping one will show soon! :)

    I'm familiar with the usual hard worker event, rarely manage to push to 10 points but I have on occasion.

    The figures posted are pretty much what I'm seeing. Except that when you can have tune running for 15 hours at speed 10, then you go from 38+ hours of lobsters (at speed 9) down to 40 minutes at speed 10, and compare that to tuna, things are going to seem broken. Hence my original comment. I'd never managed to reach 10 on the last fishing hard worker, so my initial thought was wondering if something had changed in a hotfix that I never noticed when instead of having going from 38 to 19 hours of lobsters (which is the behaviour I was expecting) it went from 38 to less than 1. It was a bit of a blow.

    The figures show that salmon, cod, swordfish and lobsters become about 80 times more difficult going from speed 9 to speed 10. That's quite a marked change when the level before it was only 3 times more difficult!

    could some of these changes be due to being in a different level of the event.... last time I was in the 26-35 lvl I think and it seemed easier, and this time I am in the 46-55 lvl. could be the requirements and timing are different for each lvl of event.

    we would need to find a way to compare the event lvls!

    @Southern (US1)  So far we're matching with the one's we already had, so looks like they did a good job of converting the times.  Thank you for sharing  :)

    Many thanks to farmerjohn 22 for this creation  :)

    love the fishing area, the hard worker event may need a little tweaking, but over all is OK

  • I love the fishing region and the new HWE for fishing.......I've ran on lobster for the whole thing almost, got the gold mining license......now, just tryin' to get in the top 50!  Way to go GGS!  Great addition to the game in my opinion! B)

    Even though Swordfish, Salmon, and Cod take the longest and sell for the most, they are much less effective for the fishing hard worker event, the highest is level 8 at 6 hours.

    Well I don't even know where the first item is to be found or how to get it. I click the show me arrow, send boats to that spot, and nothing.  Not a single one since it started.

    I really don't care much for the whole fishing thing.   BTW….. what exactly is the chum used for?
    Shrimp chum for example.  Is it made FROM shrimp?  Or used to catch MORE shrimp?
    Doesn't seem to do anything.  And as usual, the game offers NO suggestions what so ever.

    And please, no one bother sending me to pages that read like college courses with spread sheets and all that.  This is suppose to be a simple game.  

    So I just keep sending boats, they catch a single shrimp for each trip.   Tried with and without a crew, no difference I can see.   Just boring.
    See what I do when not playing silly games.

    It's probably worth persevering with it if you can. Fish are valuable commodities.

    Try catching lobster for example. You won't need lobster pots, but you need crew to extend your time whilst fishing, and probably could do with crew to increase the catch rate per hour. Other crew to speed journey time to and from the fishing spots can be left out if you wish.

    The 'info' button on the chum shows that it increases the catch rate by a percentage, for certain types of fish. I've not bothered much with it myself though.
