Nexon's current CEO is bailing, selling all his shares in Nexon and since I am pretty certain he sees the possible allegations of being held accountable for collecting money from selling loot boxes in the 1st place and face being sued by class action law suites. He is fleeing in the hopes he can avoid losing all his ill gotten gains, while he can.
So what you're saying is that we should hold back a great boon to many players just because you wish to keep a rare ring relevant?
What he's saying is that just because you guys want a great boon (Not everyone even wants 25* because of the damage it's going to do to their progress) doesn't mean that items that take a lot of money and time to get should become irrelevant. Every Reboot player using transposed SW equips is worried about 25* coming because it means that they have to virtually start over because if not they'd be losing a lot of stat. Adding it and ruining end game rings all together for this is even worse and liable to make many players quit if it causes too much of a problem for their character's current progression. He's just suggesting that they raise the ring level to stop these very expensive and rare rings from becoming worthless. I don't see the issue here, you're sort of making it a bigger deal than it is by getting what you want to out of his suggestion.
Thank you, this is what I was meaning to say. I know that BiS items change progressively; just see how we switched from VIP items to empress to CRA and tyrants throughout the years. However, with the introduction of 25 star cap, many items such as certain rings, sweetwater for reboot, shoulders, etc. would become irrelevant. Don't get me wrong, change is great. But this would bring too much change all at once.
From the items that are on stake, I was using my recently obtained Forest Guardian Ring as an example. I am mid-funded in terms of funding, and I was glad to obtain this ring since it's relatively rare and pricey to get. Not to mention, it is currently one of the BiS ring. However, 25* would make this ring obsolete to say, meister or solid gollux rings. It would make no sense for these rings to be rare to obtain, or even exist in marvel, gacha, philo for that matter.
Stuff like hilla's rage, FGR, magnus rage, frenzy totem, etc. are rare for a REASON. They are advantageous to have and rare to obtain. With this change, no one would be wanting to use FGR for example, because other rings are much better and easier to obtain. Hence, they lose value for being worthless.
Nexon constantly tries to make these gambling methods of obtaining items (gachapon, philo, marvel, etc.) "better" by removing outdated items such as empress equips. Therefore, if they don't do anything about these rare rings (other other rare-to-obtain items for that matter), my proposition is to either increase its equipment level to make them relevant or just get rid of them completely lol.
Can't we just have a nice fun little event that everyone can relax and enjoy, rather than events that make players do stuff that makes them want to rage quit?? Why are you guys trying so hard to be like Dark Soul?
