Nova Event Confirmed 11/08 and Speculation.
For anyone that hasn't seen it already, The Nova Attendance Event (assuming from the Nova Update) is listed in-game on the Events Area as Starting 11/08.
From this, I assume we're receiving the first part of the Update either the 7th - 9th Or the week after. I could be wrong but I don't think Updates land on a Wednesday, Normally it is a Tuesday or Thursday iirc.
With this info we can pretty much confirm when about Cadena will be released, If it works like KMS then Cadena will release on the 2nd update, Assuming the Part One lands on the 7th-9th I can see Cadena releasing between the 28th - 30th. This is assuming we receive the update spread out within a 2week or so Span each Part of the Nova Update similar to how KMS did it. Illium on the other hand, I don't see releasing until around Dec.
Now for the issues I see happening. It was nearly 2 and a half months for the full Nova patch in KMS, If it goes off that same idea for GMS then it will conflict with the holiday season. This could either mean 2 things. Either we're not going to get a Christmas event this year OR were going to have events that were not in the original Nova update being tossed in. I am assuming the latter and if I am right about that then take this as a Warning, We might see an onslaught of events flying at us all at once for the next months. Between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Nova being mixed in with this.
From what I remember we've only seen this happen one other time and many people didn't take part in a lot of events due to time constraints and the extreme amounts of them all happening.
The only other way I can see this not conflicting with Holiday events is if they changed it from 5 Patches into a 3 Patch Update, Starting the 7th-9th and ending right before Christmas. I can see this happening since Thanksgiving isn't usually that big of a deal in MapleStory (event wise). But I highly doubt this will happen..... on a side note, there is a chance we won't be bored for a while.
..... I'm a girl. Kappa
The big winter patch always has major updates as well as seasonal events. Always. It's how Nexon tries to make sure everyone who has a Christmas vacation spends it in Maple.
As for your speculation on the dates: I believe the "Nova Attendance" is a hype-building event coming one patch before the actual Nova patch and content. Same way we had that prelude to the Heroes of Maple where Neinheart had us fighting off Demons that were trying to attack or trap the legendary Heroes. So I think we'll get the first real Nova patch on November 29. Cadena may or may not be available right then. GMS often compresses several KMS patches into one.
That is true also, Which is why I said possibly 3 patches instead of 5. But I doubt it will be on Nov 29th. If anything it will probably be around 21st - 23rd. I doubt Nexon would release a patch like Nova that late into the year. If they release it to late it can end badly because of the patches not ending until after the new year. The last time they did that it ended horribly due to glitches that couldn't be fixed because Nexon was off for Holiday Breaks, ect. I remember one event in particular not even being playable and was just straight up removed and never added back into the game. They also had to call people into work from their break just to fix some stuff. It was a s*** show, to say the least. Not to mention you have to feel bad for the person that is called in on Christmas day to fix a glitch...
If they do this lets hope they have a Tespia prior to the release so nothing like that can happen. All in all, i doubt the 29th would be a good idea, that would mean they'd need to release a once 5 part update that was released over a 2+ month time frame within less than a Month and includes events that were not originally planned for said update.
Whew, a thousand huh? Well, Christmas time is spending time! I know I'm gonna buy me some premium surprise boxes, I love those things.
I hate to say it, but all of the events point to Nova coming out the 29th. Nexon does love a Christmas Patch :T -waits for the chaos-
Thanksgiving events end November 28, so it's pretty clear we're getting a patch on the 29th. The only questions are what it will include and which part of it will unlock when. The patch after that will likely be the Valentine's Day one, so two months later.
We can hope for Tespia, but Tune Up ended up full of bugs despite being tested that way.
The best time to release new content is when all the kids go on break from school. Yes, it's also the time Nexon employees go on Christmas vacation, but they're just going to have to be on-call in case stuff breaks down. Same as every year.
Suppose you do get a girlfriend in 2 months, 1000 is too much to be spending on her for that time frame.
Invest in a new telescope. Hear good things happening in space.
Also my Cadena Hype is real af rn
but the patch actually happens on the 29th if you watch the update preview vid... so everyone that said the 29th was correct, and you were close but incorrect, unless they are just giving confusing dates (which may also be the case).
That's.. pretty sad..
