Do Not Remove Captain Vaga
I am against the removal of Captain Vaga. According to the site, Captain Vaga was released on July 10 of this year. I strongly feel that it has not been out long enough to warrant for deletion. If there was ever a piece of game content that should be tossed to the curb, look no further than Golden Temple.
Golden Temple was once a somewhat active spot when it first came out. Apart from its entirety, the one thing it had going for it was to get a nice-looking hat. Many years later, it has become unreachable from Mu Lung. The only ways to get there are through the Maple Guide for players who are near Level 130 or by use of a Hyper Teleport Rock. A large majority of players don’t know anything about the area and the few that do are hackers.
Maybe not remove the areas entirely, but have them disabled or blocked off in a similar way they went about it with Tera Forest. Tera Forest has come and gone over several re-hashes and it still remains to be blocked off. The fact that they haven't removed Time Traveler’s Pocket Watch as a drop from enemies in Leafre suggests to me that there might still be a future for that content.
Captain Vaga is available at Level 33 through the quest (light bulb) icon to the left of the screen. I like that it is its own game mode within MapleStory where you can play as a soldier who gets to fight and exterminate large bugs on the daily. It is a new piece of content that is kind of like Heroes of Maple World. Your character transforms into another character and you adapt to the unchangeable key configurations as you play through the game. You're immediately thrown into a battle where you're struggling to figure out how to attack because it's never brought up. I just happened to find out about it when I accidently used the mouse and stuff happened to work out in my favour. Afterwards I got to learn all about hopping around and shooting stuff, but I never saw an explaination on how to use the Pistol. I found out through the forums about it. I was quickly learning that more kills gave more exp and promotion points. All the while I'm inching up in the ranks and then suddenly I'm fighting a slow-moving bug with tentacles and that it's moving from one side of the map to the other. The difficulty just shot way up because now you have to tag along with the boss and widdle away at its HP bar. I had been walled on it for 2 days and then I finally got a break when I stopped using guns and just using the spear. I had also found an odd bug in the bottom of the map when I used the Auto Turret and the boss literally spun around to move in the direction it came from. After many mouse clicks, I finally broke through. After getting passed that, the game went back to normal and it was quite literally smooth sailing until the very end. The one bad criticism I have for this game mode though, is that you can't do any of the missions as a party. I know I would've liked to have had someone helping me take out with that bug boss the first time around. In the end, I got a nice medal and a one-of-a-kind chair that plays two different songs when you're sitting with it.
So SavageAce, please reconsider your motion on fully removing Captain Vaga.
