World of Fishing is now in open beta

I like to fish in MMOs. Which is strange because I don’t much like to fish in meatspace. My favorite MMO fishing mechanics were in ArcheAge, which is too bad since you can’t do much fishing in ArcheAge without getting stealth ganked by people who enjoy killing defenseless fishermen.

Maybe I’ll like World of Fishing better. Probably not, since it’s free-to-play with a cash shop, but I can hope, right? World of Fishing styles itself as an “online big game fishing simulator,” and it promises over 30 locations and 360 different fish, as well as a large variety of gear and boats.

World of Fishing is also in open beta as of… well, right now! You can see a trailer after the break.

Pesko fishing makes your boobs and/or package larger. This is a known fact.

Still waiting for World of MMOs in which you play a simulation of a guy playing an MMO.

Gadgets4G Vanblod Uh… and? It is a game about fishing, it is just out of place and awkward.

enamelizer Depends what server you were on I guess. I rarely got to ocean fish without unwanted PvP. Sometimes I survived and sometimes I didn’t, but it got to a point where I just stood there and said fuck it, took my death, and went to play another game. 

It wasn’t high-level fishing either, I typically went out there with a friend because we enjoyed the mechanics of fighting the fish and eventually landing one. But more often than not some guy just had to teleport in behind me and stealth gank before I even knew what was going on, lol.

I understand perfectly well how the game economics worked. It’s just a shame that one of the most enjoyable solo activities was largely unavailable to me unless I wanted to be someone else’s content and/or spend gobs of cash shop money acquiring competitive PvP gear. I’m sure people did abuse fishing for money, and that’s another instance of XL lacking a clue when it comes to competent game design.

As for MOP’s anti-gankbox mentality, I can’t apologize for that because gankboxes do in fact suck. They’re vomited out by developers who lack the imagination and the ability to build an actual sandbox with gameplay consequences for in-game buffoonery. An anti-gankbox mentality is like an anti-chainsaw-up-the-butt mentality. It just makes sense.

Also, anti-gankbox doesn’t meant anti-PvP.
