      This is the "disclaimer" from the website:

      NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. ONE ENTRY PER PERSON, PLEASE SEE COMPLETE RULES FOR OTHER RESTRICTIONS. THIS IS A SKILL-BASED CONTEST. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW. AFFIDAVIT OF ELIGIBILITY / RELEASE OF LIABILITY / PRIZE ACCEPTANCE AGREEMENT MAY BE REQUIRED.

      And here are the different types of fish for the contest:

      The Mystic Fishing Bundle and 25,000 Crowns will go to the three lucky Wizards each weekend who catch one of the following:
      -The most Epic fish
      -The most Rare fish
      -The widest variety of fish (can you catch them all?!)

      We’ll also be offering the Mystic Fishing Bundle and 10,000 Crowns to those who get:
      -The most Dekoi type fish
      -The smallest Jellyfish type fish
      -The smallest Eel type fish
      -The largest Codfather
      -The largest Todd Pole



      I have to disagree with the statements I have highlighted in bold from the disclaimer. After some searching on the Wiki (It always can solve everything!), I found that the smallest Eel and Jellyfish type fish cannot be found in free areas, therefore making this contest unbalanced.
      (Although, it really was already Pay To Win, with Members getting more energy and people buying Energy Elixirs)

      There are five types of eel fish- the Dragon Eel, Krokotopian Eel, Undead Spyre Eel, Spyre Eel, and the Duckbill Eel. Out of these five, only one fish- the Dragon Eel- can be accessed for free through Castle Tours. The main problem, however, is that the Duckbill Eel is the smallest of these five, clocking in at 16 inches, while the Dragon Eel only reaches a minimum of 18.7 inches.
      But despite this, KingsIsle claims that "No purchase [is] necessary".


      As for the Jellyfish, we have the same problem. Out of the four Jellyfish, the Marmalade Jellyfish, Blackberry Jellyfish, Grape Jellyfish, and Strawberry Jellyfish, only one of these fish can be caught in free areas- the Grape Jellyfish. The Grape Jellyfish's minimum size is 23.8, but the minimum size of the Marmalade Jellyfish is 23.4 inches!


      As for the other fish in this contest, both the Codfather and Todd Pole can be obtained through Castle Tours, although it should be noted that of the seven Dekoi fish, only two can be caught for free!
      Lastly, we have the "The widest variety of fish" portion. This clearly pampers towards Members and those with unlocked areas, so if you're a FTP Player? Then you don't stand a chance in this category!



      It would seem to me that this contest is not set on a level playing field. Members obviously will do fine, but for free Players and those with limited areas unlocked...? Regardless of the fact that Players will be buying energy elixirs and fishing gear, this alone disputes KingsIsle's claim that this contest is without "purchase". Sure, you can enter in some categories, but not all of them!

      I suspect that this technicality is simply an oversight by a few employees, but this does speak to some of the larger issues KingsIsle has faced lately. All of these consistent oversights do add up over time, and there will be serious consequences if they are left ignored!

      @Sparck Why are you running two major events at the same time ie Fishing and the Death Deckathalon ? Perhaps these should have been on different dates so all members could play both and not have to chose which they they missed out on? Seems someone is not thinking about timing. Lady cat says meow
