[AOE4] Fishing Exploit Needs Fixed!

Post by acergame09 »

Some players are using a vill to place docks and deleting them immediately which deletes all the fish on river maps for free. I haven't seen this in any patch notes so I hope the devs fix this exploit ASAP.

I managed to win this game, but people using this exploit will mess up your opponents macro, cost them 150 wood by building the dock, and then poof goes the fish. From the pictures, you can see 3 fish are available and then placing docks delete them.

Yea that's pretty dumb. It's like how building foundations deleted herds in aoe3, except it was never really exploited much:https://www.twitch.tv/aiz11/clip/Tangib ... KappaClaus

Well even placing your own dock near the shore makes fish disappear i feel like the whole concept of fishing needs to be reworked having it spawn away from shore line which gets unaffected by the placement of the docks

They should remove deleting shore fish and when you delete the dock the fish regenerates with the previous food amount. You can even delete fish with walls lol. They also should just make deep fish and shore fish have roughly the same rate of gathering. The map gens are pretty imbalanced.

wtf :lol: It's kinda worse than deleting herds because it makes ur 150 wood investment in building a dock non-viable. It's worse than the mongol tc rush tbh. I've only had it done to me by that one guy but this is going to probably start getting abused soon.

Thanks man. I haven't really played video games since 2015 so I'm kinda surprised. I don't want to get too sucked into this game as it takes a lot of time out of my days but It's too late for that :uglylol: . Luckily, I just finished a project for work so I have some extra time to blow rn.

Also as for the ladder, it's a "smurf hell" where a lot of top 20 players including TheMista, Hut, etc are playing off smurfs which saturates the top 200 ladder making it harder to break into the top 20.

ah this is such an old aoe thing, but now with much smaller rivers it could be a problem. Usually its bad for you since you delete your own fish but to use it offensively is big brain

He said it was to counter French so this checks out.
When in doubt, teepee out!
