We’ve looked into this issue and have a fix in the works to make the fishing tournaments behave in a more predictable manner. Unfortunately, this will require a patch in order to take effect, so we are disabling the fishing tournaments until we can deliver the fix for them in a future patch.
As a side-note: we’ll be posting about some larger CRZ concerns in the very near future, so hang in there. We’re listening, and we’re working to address those concerns just as quickly as we can.
"Very near" better mean very near and not anything at all like "soon". I just got so fed up with the CRZ system I logged off the game. They said CRZ wasn't for capital cities, yet I am seeing 8 different realms of characters in my capital cities. The auctioneers are packed. The vendors are packed. I can't mine in peace in Icecrown, and now I can't even fish or do cooking dailies in peace in my capitals. I NEED to hear some concise, truthful, positive information about CRZ and preferably about an implementation to toggle it off, permanently, like a parental control.
I'm teetering on the brink of calling billing to cancel my MoP preorder. If I don't hear good CRZ info by Friday, I'll just make the call and assume the worst about it. I especially don't want to be told that the problem is me. That I'm simply too stupid to understand the system and misconstrue it's function, like the AMA answer indicated to the public.
