RBG's BIG FISH TOURNAMENT this weekend!

Post by Sinja »

All you fishermen out there, get your boat decks swabbed, your favorite fishing pole, and pack a lunch! All you land lubbers get a boat and a pole and get your skills up!

RBG is hosting a BIG FISH TOURNAMENT this weekend!

Starts Friday 5/20 at 00:01
Ends Saturday 5/21 at 23:59
Go to RBG Guild and Vendors under shops on the world tele. Then take the blue water housegate to RBG Event center, to drop entries and for the Trophy presentation.

*Only Big Fish (they will have your name, weight, and date/time caught) may be entered.
*Only Big Fish dated 5/20 or 5/21 will count.

There are 3 categories you may enter:
*Biggest Big Fish
*Smallest Big Fish
*Most Big Fish -*Only Big Fish in a bag together will count for the “Most Fish” trophy.

You may enter ONE time in EACH category. There are drop boxes labeled with the categories. Be sure to put your entry in the correct drop box!

Entries must be in the drop boxes at RBG Event Center, by 02:00 on Sunday 5/22. (Late entries will NOT be accepted)

There is no cost / entry fee for this event, however, we will have a token (or gold to buy tokens) donation box if you’d like to support future event trophies or participation prizes.

The RBG Event Center will close to the public at 02:00 on Sunday 5/22
We will reopen at 19:00 to swap lies, I mean, err, stories about the ones that got away.  :lol:
Trophy presentation will be at 20:00.
If you have an entry, please try to attend so you can get your participation prize and your fish back!

Winners of each category will receive a trophy and a prize.
All who enter a fish will receive a participation prize.
We will attempt to return all fish.

Good Luck!

Fun Facts:
Takes around 90 skill to start catching Big Fish (they are still random and few and far between)
It does not take hook, bait or lure to catch a Big Fish, just a pole in deep water.
Fishing raises dex and strength!
Is Fel better than Tram? That one I don’t know, if you do, help us out in the comments!

Here are the results you've been waiting for....

Biggest Big Fish - 200 stones Eowanda! Congratulations Eowanda!

Honorable Mention Biggest Big Fish - 200 stones Alya!
Honorable Mention Biggest Big Fish - 200 stones Eles!
there was a tie for Biggest Fish, broken by time stamps. Eowanda caught the first one.
The Honorable Mentions did win a small prize also....the Big Book of Fishin Lies!

Smallest Big Fish - 20 stones Alya! Congratulations Alya!

Most Big Fish - 60 Big Fish! Jack Nine! Congratulations Jack!
(and yes, I did check the time stamps on every single one and there were a few hours gaps, I thought maybe he afk'd it too, but doesn't appear to be the case, folks!)

Special shout out to Orogastus!
He provided the exotic fish of Excelsior for display at the Event Center Trophy Presentation.
He also provided 50 fishing poles with special attributes to go into every participants' Go Fish Bag gifts.

Special shout out to ALL the participants!

And to all who donated tokens for the participation prize cost of next event!
An event with participation prizes AND trophy's costs about 4.75 mil tokens.
Over 5 mil tokens were donated!
The Generosity of Excelsiorians never fails to amaze me!
So a big THANK YOU to the awesome people who donated. You know who you are!

Fun Facts-

There were 30 participants

We lugged over 65 THOUSAND stones of fish into the Event Center to process! Even my mules and Praise were tired! *laughs*
Seriously - you all hammered this event!!

I did not track entries, but I would guess at around 50 entries, as alot entered more than one category.

How many fish were there? ALOT, that's all I can tell you! (I'll try to do better with stats next time!)

Did you know you could craft a fishing pole that can only be used when drunk? Me neither!


For next year (and we will do this again next year!) I would love to put together a book of favorite fishing lies errr...stories, I meant fishing stories! If you all would be so kind as to write your favorite fishing "story" in a book, you could be part of it! Please put your name as the author so we know who to credit! And drop it off at the RBG Guild & Vendors or the RBG Event Center. Or just holler at Sinja in game!

We had a great time hosting this event, we always learn something new!
And as always, we appreciate your participation and support so much!
It's what keeps us coming back with these events!

Cya next time! :D
