    Cross shard events are pointless, the cost to xfer the char and winnngs back to home shard are too much to even contemplate ever participating in a xshard event.

    Other than that fishing tourneys arnt a bad idea at all, even without the new changes that are coming up, they however will make it even more interesting!

    cdavbar....

    "Cross-shard" events do not require cross-sharding characters.

    The judges, after all, don't HAVE to be fishers.

    You can have multi-shard events happening simultaneously, with judges present on each forums (someone's gift swappers, for example), and make arrangements through one of the multi-shard guilds (say, someone with Whispering Rose Radio or The Syndicate, as the two most obvious choices) to have the cash prizes paid in on one shard, and paid out to the winner on their home shard.

    Cross Shard would leave the fisher on their home shard

    I would create a Char on ANY shard that would / could contain a fisher that enters the contests and then using brokers or myself make the prizes avail to the winners on their shard.

    Of course this also opens another catagory i didnt factor in - Shard Winners?
