    Alrighty, here goes! (Updates may be made at random)

    Design submission:

    Past concepts (non-submission designs):

    http://imgur.com/VoAmRDx (previous idea)

    http://imgur.com/KIOCO8R (first sketch!)

    A little rough around the edges, but I'm not very good at this kind of thing. Hopeful for the best, though!

    The chair itself could be a reward for showing up during the start of the event period. Backstory could either have it as a thank you gift from Maple Admin, or from Cassandra. For the latter, she had it commissioned ten years ago because she had foreseen the coming of the Fifth Job advancement in her crystal ball. Some item descriptions I had in mind:

    "This high-tech chair was created to celebrate the V update."

    "This chair depicts the high octane journey to level 200, where Fifth Job advancements are now possible."

    "A chair made in celebration of the V update, which commemorates the launch of the Fifth Job advancement."

    "Go from 1 to 200 in a flash with this celebratory V chair."

    "Get into the spirit of V with this [chair name] chair, made to celebrate a fantastic event loved by many. "

    It's not the best, but I'm sure the art team could make it awesome. Thank you for your time!

    Also thanks to Beauty for the helpful feedback!

    Calm yourself, son. Just because the community manager(who is still up in WA on family affairs btw) and his boss decided to put together a contest doesn't mean they're ignoring bugs. What, do you want the community manager to stop interacting with the community unless it's to post "yes this is being fixed as we speak"?

    Apologies for the poor quality. im not very good at drawing. <_>

    anyway, the base of the of the chair would be a dark grey stone type color with the V and 5 symbol being a bright neon blue as they appear in the microsite. The two 5's on the side would float up and down and/or slowly rotate around the Y axis and would slowly pulse between a dark neon red and bright neon blue. The "Happy 5th Job" would sit statically above the chair and be a similar neon blue (though I'm open to having them either float or show up when you first sit and then fade away). The character would either sit hunched over, holding their head up with one hand and gentle neon blue light would emanate from their eyes (similar to the trailer pictures) or they would be learning against one armrest or the other with the similar neon blue light.

    Story-wise, it would have been created by the Job Trainers, using the same technology that enabled the advancement to 5th job, for the player as congratulations for their time and dedication they committed in order to reach 5th job.

    I had so much fun with this. Wanted to make the V logo 3D, but it didn't look so good that way. Loved making the different versions as well. Enjoy. :)

    Description: You would get this chair after your 5th job advancement or so I'd feel. I imagine the V symbol to float a bit and the lightning would come and go if it were animated. Although I can see the lightning being optional.

    HI FRIEND! [Missing flamebait] so I'll try to tone it down, don't want to trigger anyone else and get another warning lol. Your son is toning it down rn, yup, sure is.
    But I never said 'I don't want him to interact with players' I don't know why you keep saying this. I just think it's funny that they still haven't got any updates on the bugs that need fixed from their staff and the maintenance going on now only lists a couple of bugs that need fixed. I'm still waiting to hear news on the Halloween event bugs compensation. We haven't got updates but maybe they are all having some unexpected family emergencies aylmao.

    i guess it's not very futuristic.. but i really liked the new lvl 200 area that'll be releasing, so i thought of this

    hum.. to get it, i guess you'd just have to finish the new area's storyline, or complete your 5th job advancement. i always thought an easy to get chair you can use with friends would be a good idea.

    as for the item description.. "swing with a buddy on the banana swing chair and catch the nearby ocean breeze." (??)

    although i did not include it, having bits of the area as a background sounded like a nice idea.

    not expecting to win, but i thought it was a cute design ^^

    Failwhale, not for Europe boo I hope this is not what having a Nexon Global account means for eternity...
    (Koreans shipped to Nexonians from Europe without hesitation. This is just nexon being lazy and the so called coolishness and benefits of having a Nexon Global account as a former Nexon Europe player, wonder where they are... Also German office still exists, they could just ship the physical stuff, problem solved. If that would be the real problem, which I doubt.)

    ┊______________________☠♛OVER POWERED CHAIR♛☠_______________________┊
    ┕-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------┙

    ☢ DESCRIPTION: The over power chair is a chair giving you the feeling of being even stronger than before
    with this new upcoming update. This chair surrounds you with the aura of pure energy coursing through
    your veins! The character floats in the energy he/she creates while tearing the very atmosphere around
    them. Not even the 6 heroes can save you from whoever sits in this chair. Neon glowing rocks float around
    you with the stones torn from the ground from your terrifying power! Fist clenched from trying to control,
    the character is beyond levels never achieved before! Sitting on the grass in Henesys trying to contain your
    newly found power, you are now one with yourself as you lift yourself off the ground, or actually the ground
    is lifted with you as well!

    ☢HOW TO ACHIEVE: You now have the power, NOW GO OUT AND TEST THAT POWER! Fight your way killing
    999 Monsters and collect 500 V Stones from their fallen husks to get your hands on this chair as well as exp
    matching your level. Seems like too much? Maybe you cant handle the power? Don't think you deserve the
    power you are going to be gifted! Am i wrong? PROVE IT AND GO OUT THEIR AND COMMIT MAPLE-CIDE!

    Hi everyone,

    I just got permission from our legal department to make some changes to the rules.
    The affected sections are Eligibility & Prizing.
    We have opened Eligibility up to all regions, but because of this and we will not be able to ship out physical merchandise. Winners will only get MaplePoints.

    I will continue to work with our legal department moving forward to make more sets of rules to accommodate all the wonderful new people we have taken up.

    For now.

    SEND US YOUR CHAIRS. SEND US YOUR SEATS. AND CHAIR FOR YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNS!

    Does this mean there's also no chance for Europeans to buy official merchandise if such a thing would become available in the future? Is there a legal problem with shipping outside the US?
