I think nexon got a little overconfident allowing the arcane express pass in reboot not too long ago. However that system wasn’t intended to supplant arcane dailies, so most rebooters didn’t bother.
‘Maple tour’ on the other hand came with the end of low level kanna farming so that you are essentially forced to use it. And its absurd that there’s loophole allowing you to pay for progress on a server that revolves around free progress.
I refuse to believe this was an oversight by Nexon but regardless, selling additional entries for maple points has got to be the biggest blunder since the world transfer of 2017.
2) This was a retroactive statement following a series of autoban features they might have implemented that didn't kick in until now
They might have changed the logic of the autoban to hit more people. Before this most people spaced out their death times to avoid an autoban, some died consecutively until 0% and the autoban didn't even trigger. There is obviously some kind of condition that would've triggered it in the past but I feel like nexon changed it recently and broadened it under the pretence that it was always illegal to suicide anyway. If this is true it would mean that nexon specifically targeted the suicide kanna meta in order to bring it to an end.
