Fishing Contests are potential hourly fishing events. They occur at random throughout the day, so long as at least 5 players are online and last for a MINIMUM duration of 10 minutes.
Competing in fishing contests can be done from anywhere, simply fishing during them will let players catch special fish and compete with others for leaderboard spots. The fish caught in these contests can either be kept as collectibles or sold using /emf shop for extra money. After the 10 minute duration the player who caught the largest fish will be announced the winner.
The rewards for placing in a fishing contest are as follows:
There are five rarities of fish that can appear during fishing contests, Common, Uncommon, Rare, Legendary and Ancient.
Certain Fishing Contest fish are notable for giving the player potion effects, having unique lore or dropping an item when captured. These fish can be found anywhere and can be caught during any contest.
