So the patch notes say "Added party-play zones." in a better maple section. But fail to give any indication of where these party play zones are....... Give us detailed patch notes please Nexon.

    Maybe we're supposed to "explore" for them?

    Yeah, I agree the update notes should tell us that sort of stuff.

    I have a feeling the Party Play Zones are actually the Party Training Zones that was released in CMS, and is a system that allows you to help and train with low lvl players, could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that's what it will be.

    If im right though, check the quick move image for that icon image and see how far it goes

    If not that then Veracent probably.

    I think it bypasses the limit but IDK, I dont know much chinese

    All I can tell you is Spadow's translated info that states that it's for High lvl players helping low lvl players

    I think these are some of the areas and lvl ranges you can choose from. There might be more, I just grabbed these from CMS's chat board on Baidu

    You can already get form 75 to 129 in like 1-2 hours on normal days? I don't really see the point in this, and I'll be sad if they don't bring back party play training maps. Those maps are more enjoyable for grinding then solo grinding.

    Party maps and solo maps for each their own.

    I logged in in Commerci's Trading Post and was informed that "You have entered an area optimized for Party Play. EXP for all Party Members is increased by 50%."

    This is odd phrasing and I wonder whether it's a flat 50% regardless of number of party members, or 50% per member (as old LKC used to be, so 250% bonus for a full party).

    Commerci is a weird choice to be made into party play maps. No one actually trains there.

    Phrasing is indeed odd, but I hope it is the former. The latter option was just abused way too heavily.

    If you click the Quickmove you guys will see I was right

    The former can hardly be said to encourage party play, though.
    Anyone who can do so, trains with a HS'er already. So this would be just an extra bonus for those with two computers.
    The latter option would at least encourage people to go find some friends to afk in their map. Not that many people have six computers.

    Anyway, the list of Party Play areas can be accessed from the Quick Move in (some) towns, such as Henesys. Commerci is the highest level one.
