    Are you serious? What is the point of this at ALL? Considering a large portion of the userbase can't even USE the coin exchange event because... Event Hall lag. Right. Way to kill my enthusiasm for this update that should be amazing.
    It was added because Nexon stupidly included Tynerum Shards in the coin exchange, and those can still be farmed.

    So instead of removing them, they put a limit on everything.

    As for the lag, it's apparently made worse due to the fact that Maple Admin is constantly scanning your inventory in order to decide whether to show you the coin exchange option.
    But then she doesn't use that information to only show you the coins you have, so you need to painfully scroll through her entire list and compare it to your inventory.

    And then when you click on a coin type she doesn't do the math and suggest the maximum number of trades you can make (like some other NPCs do), but leaves it to you.

    Really well designed event, Nexon. Living up to my expectations.
    They should have removed it instead of putting a limit :(
    Can't they think from players' perspective?

    Now we need to visit the Event Hall more often to get the coins exchanged (if that is even possible with all the lag).

    Before v.177 I also had the lag for many months and I got rid of the lag I had in the Event Hall after reformatting my computer, updated my Windows, installed latest drivers etc. This only lasted a few days before v.177 and as soon v.177 went live the lag returned.

    I just realized, where is the coin shop going to be placed?
    I think you can guess the answer to that one.


    Other question: why can't we exchange Water Bucks and MMF coins?
    The only coins I SAVED...except a couple of Heroes coins.

    Really a shop would have been the appropriate place for such an exchange. No scanning of you inventory required, all you do is buy a V coin for a certain number of other coins

    I'm not sure that's technically feasible. You'd have to have a shop that accepts 20 or 30 different types of currency. I know there are shops that accept more than one, but I can't think of any that accept more than 2 or 3.

    An exchange quest is fine, but it doesn't need to scan your inventory continuously, especially when it doesn't use the information gathered to make your life easier (by only offering to accept the coins you have, and by suggesting to exchange the maximum possible number).

    I completely forgot about the coin exchange. I also forgot that my main was carrying 1k mustache combs and scissors this whole time. Too bad it will take days to exchange all of that, plus my other coins.

    Surprisingly, I'm not lagging despite carrying many of the coin options. It could be something else causing the lag or maybe I lucked out and stopped lagging.

    The coin exchange is meant for us to get some use out of old useless coins. Rice cake is an ongoing event, you should use the coins in the Rice Cake Coin shop.
    Oda coins will be able to be used when Sengoku High returns again.

    MMF coins, though, as well as Aqua Bucks, should be added to the exchange.

    I think the exchange rate is fine (wouldn't want too many V coins given out), but I would have preferred it if they rounded up, so you could get one more V coin with the last few of an old coin you have.

    For example, I have exactly 36 Black Friday coins on a bunch of mules. (I can't remember when or how those coins were given out and why I couldn't use them). But due to the exchange rate now (13:1) I can only get 2 V coins from them and have 10 Black Friday coins left over. Wish I could trade those last 10 in for another coin.

    I've always been pretty careful about using up my event coins before an event ends, so I only have fewer than 10 coins of each type. Would have been really nice if I could turn each of those little stacks into a V coin.
