Shroud of the Avatar teases fishing overhaul, livestream, and really huge pumpkins

    
4

Happy weekend, y’all. Let’s go fishing.

Not real fishing, mind you. I mean pretend fishing in Shroud of the Avatar. Though it might be better to wait until phase two of the fishing revamp is actually done, since Portalarium is working on adding new rods, new loot, active bait, new recipes, and 30 new fishies as well as trophy fish mechanics, which is the perfect segue into fall, as apparently they’re the same mechanics used for trophy jack-o’-lanterns.

There are incentives to fish in player cities too. “Randomly selected Player Owned Towns with water will get a short fishing bonus,” says the studio. “We will also be introducing an experience bonus for fishing while grouped.”

The devs are planning another community livestream today at 5 p.m. EDT with prizes and fundraising for release 58.

This game has been in development for more than five years, and the devs consider it a big deal to add fishing? Does this kind of piddling content really keep the whales happy?

Depends on how you define “player,” really. I am like thousands of people who paid money for this game, excited for the prospects, only to find it to be a clunky, ugly piece of trash. Everyone once in a while I reinstall it and log in again, just to see if anything important has changed for the better, and sadly very little has.

Considering that you seem to have nothing to say about the game except for uncritical praise, I have a hard time believing that you’re not paid by Portalarium. So I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree!

Telling you I have a hard time believing something is not an accusation of the opposite, but that aside, no, I don’t. I’m only suspect of those who write their praise as though they’re writing marketing materials.
