Stubborn thinking on Nexons part.. they have had numerous 'world transfer' events which leave all but 1-2 servers to be entire ghost towns.. You would think they would learn that a server alliance/merge is necessary to accomodate the situation. Alternatively, Nexon has been running 'world transfer' events, ultimately cycling which servers are dead and which are active (i.e. before the oct 2017 world transfer, windia was the most active nonreboot server with Bera being dead.. after the world transfer event, they simply switched spots..) I honestly do not know how Nexon is still trying to run 6 non-reboot servers.. those days have been gone for years, there is clearly some mismanagement of Nexon America, that is without a doubt. They're sleeping on one of their most lucrative assets, look at all the quitting sales on the disc markets.. Oh I forgot, the massive underground market where everyone sells their gear is technically against TOS.. forget that last part..
I've had my 90 day pet since about 2007... been reviving it as my main pet the whole time.. even when pet revive costed nx, but now that you can buy pet revive potions from the reward shop there is less money to be made on old pets... If there was an nx item to make my 90day pet permanent, I'm sure me and alot of other people would pay for such a luxury.. not that I'm against using my reward points for this, but it would save us the hassle of this procedure while allowing Nexon to turn more of a profit. Please consider.
Honestly, when i made this idea, i was being half joking and half serious. On one hand, some of this stuff is absolutely absurd, but on the other hand, philo books and marvel machine have a lot of junk still mixed in nexon needs to clean out (ex. fafnir weapons). i would definitely like to see the reward pools for marvel / philo slimmed down a bit and more junk removed.
Yea the even funnier joke is that we are pretty much already paying for the same level of absurdity with marvel, philo, gacha. the amount of garbage in those RNG makes it hysterical (or depressing?) that people literally spend thousands of dollars trying to get a certain totem, or my personal favourite, spending hundreds for the aesthetics of a maplestory chair.
For real though, if you have a $100 box without all the garbage (bc there are a lot of items >$100 value) it'd be more exciting than the $5-$10 worth of garbage I get from marvel everytime before I cut my losses (I never learn)
A month old thread is considere necro bump?? Geez People need to chill a little...
Generally if no one has said anything in a month, it's considered settled or otherwise a non-issue. The concept of necroing a dead thread is overlooked if the most recent post adds something of substance to the thread. This thread had zero replies until whatshisname came in to say very little beyond "yeah I agree", which doesn't really pass muster for being a substantial contribution to a month-old thread that got zero attention in the 46 days since its creation.
There is rarely, if ever, a reason to go four or five pages back in any given section of any forum(not just this one) to dredge up a long-abandoned thread with no contribution beyond agreement with whatever the OP of that thread had originally stated.
What are you two even talking about? He didn't just say he agreed, he proposed what he thought would be an effective solution (i.e. 3 NA servers, letting people in 4/6 servers choose to move to the two most popular ones). despite all the suggestions i've heard this one honestly is an alternative to popular suggestions such as forced mass merges, server transfer events, paying for a server transfer.. so it is a new contribution, or atleast one we haven't heard many times in ANY of these server population threads. It's disgusting you guys are dismissing this opinion and chalking it up to a necropost, its like you read 4 words out of his 3 line post.. I've bolded the important parts for you guys to connect dots.
His comments did add something to this thread passenger, try reading passed the first 4 words. Considering how adamantly against addressing the server population problem (in favour of server stability?) you have been in previous threads on this topic I can't help but suspect your bias is deliberately trying to undermine this thread by saying it is a necropost adding nothing. it is NOT a necropost if the issue is still relevant, and the comment contributes something new to the thread/topic.
Additionally, 1 month on this forum is not a long time. relatively minor activity on maple forums.
On a more important note- I definitely agree with secondhero. allowing transfers to only two of the most popular servers is a great idea as the most populated servers have been blocked in previous events leading to 4 dead servers every time (windia used to be the new bera just 16 months ago!) We could couple this idea with a merge of all the dead servers together, after a period of time where people can xfer to bera and scania, leaving the massively dead khroa, windia, and those 2 other alliances able to be merged together to form a low population server for people who prefer that.
Interesting strategy indeed for Nexon to wait this long to address the growing problem of the inevitably needed server alliance/merge. Where is the follow up review on the world transfer event back in November? Did no one with authority realize the long term effects of that event? I think Nexon should address this problem sooner rather than later before this game becomes too much like a solo campaign game (pretty close already in my server). We still have 4 or 5 dead servers after that world transfer event, which staffer checked off saying the transfer event was a success??T_T
I feel like this needed updated is being treated like an exciting new patch. This is an urgent matter that in my opinion will make or break this game. Waiting this long since the last time Nexon addressed this issue is terrible for the gameplay as every server but Bera and Reboot has compromised experiences (try getting a boss queue in any other server if you don't have a friend to help you). Hopefully we get something soon.
