This game feels very frustrating
I have been a player for many years and I might as well be posting my grievances here but I feel there is a lot wrong with the game as of right now. Since when did the event shops need to have certain "tiers" to acquire just so you can be able to buy something? A tier which you have to spend the coins you are farming just to expand the daily limit and items you can buy? What benefit is there to this? Also the rates for items in MapleStory like cubes, nodes, flames, or star forcing just feel astronomically small. It also sucks how everything is straight up untradeable which is confusing. Did Chaos Zakum's Branch really need to be untradeable? How is that item being tradeable breaking the game in any way? Speaking of bosses, why do some have as many attempts per day (Granted you have to wait 30 minutes which in the servers defense, having unlimited attempts without waiting anytime would probably strain the servers hard so I can understand that.) yet, bosses like gollux you straight up only get one attempt per day no exceptions? There isn't even a practice mode for gollux like the other bosses so how am I supposed to even try and get better when the game is designed to hinder you as much as possible? While on the subject of bosses why does hard hilla have that stupid absorb move you can't even counter? Or lucid with her bombs? Those moves do not make the game challenging, it literally makes the content for an average player who wants to at least try impossible. Listen, I really like the game and have loved playing it as a kid. It will always be nostalgic but it is infuriating to see the game having problems with these updates that never existed pre-big bang. Old events didn't require you reach a certain tier or rank to access the full shop, things were untradeable but there didn't seem to be an overabundance of them where now everything feels like it will more than likely be untradeable, and people could still do a regular attack swing with any sword or 1 handed weapon that met the person class requirements yet, despite being able to equip a 1 handed weapon I can't attack with it unless it is my class? Very irritating and do not understand why this was taken away from everyone nor do I believe it caused any problems for Nexon. All these new restrictions that seemingly serve no purpose make Maplestory in general hard to enjoy and while I believe that it is important to still have a game be challenging in certain circumstances, some of these updates and new restrictions don't even benefit Nexon anyways (Like restricting everyone being able to swing a maple sword around.) I cannot be the only player who feels frustrated with each of the things I have listed and hope that this will be looked at as more than a player just being salty. Please relax some of the trivial restrictions and maybe look into the % of use items like cubes, nodes, and flames cause the rates to feel unreal. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I'm not just trying to criticize the game.
