Contests

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Contests Contest.gif were a new feature added to Fish Wrangler in roughly October, 2011. Prior to that were at least 3 Mini Contests which can be seen at the bottom of this page.

FW Contest page

Due to user feedback and support, we're going to be doing more fish catching contests for specific periods of times. We're greatly improving the previous setup, so we can quickly do new contests, quickly payout players, and give out cool profile trophies for those who win! We hope you enjoy the new Contests feature!

Special Bonuses
During the contest there are a couple of the Special Bonus boosts which are disabled such as the 'Timer' bonus and 'Deckhands' bonus. In order to use those one will need to disable contest catches.

Disable Contest Catches (Prevents interruptions to quest catches.)
As of May 2017, this new feature was added to allow those not wanting interruptions for such things as ongoing active streak records, etc. This can be found under Settings> General Settings in order to enable this, or by clicking here: Link.

Note: - Pay close attention to verbatum for Contest fish as they can be in just Farovia, Roperia, in a single location or in all locations. Sometimes it's not revealed until the release or just clues are given.

Contest FAQs[edit]

What is a Contest Catch?

A contest catch is a new feature that is calculated when you go on a regular fishing trip , crew trip, or night fishing catch of the specific Contest Fish between the start and end times. Catches made before or after the contest dates will not count! (NOTE: You can always disable contest catches, see section at the top of this page.)

How are Places Determined?

Places are determined by whoever has the most Contest Catches. Contest Catches are tie broken by the Heaviest Catch (contest/non-contest). Heaviest Catches are tie broken by whoever caught the contest fish first (contest/non-contest) - so there can NEVER be a tie.

Different Types Contests

Some contests are based upon most catches, while others will be based upon Heaviest Catch. There were only two different kinds, as of May 2017 a third type was added. The third type of contest introduced is most total weight.
