So their solution to fishing is to make it more difficult and time consuming? This is insane.Yes, fishing is boring as heck. But you know what? I like it that way! I can pop on some tunes or a podcast while I tune out the rest of the world and just fish.I don't want to have to keep throwing my fishing line in front of fish in the water. Have you seen how innacurate it is to hit a school of fish as it is?All this will do is force you to take even more time to level up a skill that you aren't doing for fun anyway!

Exactly what I was thinking - we need to make it EASIER and FASTER. The best thing they did was allow you to fish anywhere no matter your fishing skill.If you are playing a game called "Animal Crossing" then sure - go have a fishing challenge, if I'm playing WoW - fishing is a SECONDARY profession, not something that I need to think about too deeply IMO.

Since the aim of the revamp seems to be to get more people into fishing, if it became more difficult to catch an individual fish, you would probably gain skillups from catching fewer fish.personally, I think it sounds fun. Much better than the boring chore it is now.

Its intention might be to help hurt fishing bots. From what I've read, fishing bot programs just watch for the red flag on the bobber, and do the right-click command when the red spot moves. This new system will make it a lot harder to bot, if it's remotely close to the Animal Crossing concept. Stopping botting is A-Okay in my book.

Yes, it's much too easy to make a fishbot, anything that hurts that is fine with me."All this will do is force you to take even more time to level up a skill that you aren't doing for fun anyway!"Well why are you doing it then? There's nothing forcing you to. Are you a masochist or something?
