I can't express how happy I am to hear this news. The STV contest is the last achievement I need for my Salty title. But, no matter how hard I try, it just never seems to work out.
I take all the tips into mind, and do all the tricks. I set my hearth to BB, I have a fish macro on my action bar, so I can see how many I've collected, without having to open my bags. And, I always get there early and find a good spot.
But, being that I'm on a pvp server, even when I bring a friend, it just never seems to work out. There always seems to be big groups of five or six who are just waiting to wreck everyone's fun. And, what stings is that, most of the time, they don't even have a fisher who's looking to win the contest, with them. They are just out to wreck the chance for anyone else, because it's a pvp server and they think it's all in fun and justified.
And, I'm all for world pvp. But, I have enough respect for other players, that I'm not going to attempt to screw them over on something that I realize they only have a chance to do once a week. So, it just sort of ruins the whole fun of it. And, even if I were to bring a big group of my own, which isn't always easy to accomplish, it would still equal in wasted time pvping. And so, like I said, it just never seems to work out. So, I am definitely thrilled about the possibility of this new contest. Not to mention, that it just sounds really cool and fun. And, I love anything new and exciting that involves fishing. :D
