    You seem to be under the impression that bots didn't make use of those as well. Simple enough matter to transfer things to a more "legit-sounding" character name and then sell them like that. I'll give you, though, that it's become far more blatant with the auction house.

    You are mistaken - that's not my impression. What I am suggesting is that if other people want to buy from botters that's there perogative to roll the dice, but I would prefer I have the option of knowing the in game name before I do these expensive transactions (and again, asking for vouches/references).

    Yes, there are ways to get around that. just like there would be in any context of this trade, but it would certainly help mitigate it (I.e 'reputable' sellers, aka the vouch system blackmarket maple runs on, or if you're buying end gear in a lower populated server there's a decent probability you would know the seller).

    Anyway, I didn't make too strong of an assertion in that regard for a reason, the main issue being resolved is negotiating price, a pretty fundamental aspect to every economy (online or not).

    I know it's been brought up before, but it's just pathetic it got swept under the rug.

  • get rid of anonymity in Auction House

    It seems unecessary to not mention the in game name of people selling items in the Auction House. Providing the character name would allow people to make offers on items, and would at least help mitigate the purchasing of illegal items (i.e. don't buy from the ign 'VwVWV356G'). It is the replacement for Free Market stores after all, which had transparency in who you were transacting with.

  • Game feels like SoloStory now

    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..

  • Nx item to make 90day pets permanent

    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)
