THERES NO REASON TO DEACTIVATE THOSE CHARACTERS... MAPLESTORY PLAYER BASE ESPECILLY OLDER PRE 2016 PLAYERS, return ocationaly... last year alone ton of oler players returned to the game with their old account.

also under lvl 61 rule is bad.. since 2016 was not easy year to get to even level 100 (espiecily for unfunded players)
AND WHAT ABOUT ALL THE RARE ITEM THOSE PLAYERS HAVE: ITEM WE CANT EVER GET SINCE SEASONAL EVENTS STOPPED RETURNING LIKE THEY USED TOO?
I THINK U AT LEAST SHOULD EXPLAIN US TO WHY THE REASON YOU DO THAT CLEAN UP.

deleting hundrads of pre DEC 2016 accounts is a bad move and will for sure earase the little hope for older players to return.. when they find out that their characters got deleted
NOT TO MENTION THE LEGAL ASPECT OF ACCOUNTS THAT PUT MONEY IN THE GAME PRE 2016; YOU WOULD HAVE TO REFUND ALL THOSE PLAYERS becuz its not like the game itself closing down, an its not becuz those players did something against the rules\law using your game: so legaly deleting on porpose characters from pre 2016 account without a reason based on your TOS, is kinda illegal, since thers nothing about you can deactivate peoples account as you'd like with no reason at all. (its like you bought something from the store and years after you bought it the store tracking down buyers and taking back the item for no reason)

    also you dont own your account.
    so nexon can just freely shut down the game and we as the player cant do anything about it

    This isn't Twitter, don't go around espousing your false perception of legality when you failed to understand (or more likely didn't read) the TOS when you made a Nexon account.

    Players have been requesting this for years.
    It takes 20 minutes to reach level 61 and any gear on those characters is now useless.
    Players who have not logged on in FIVE YEARS should not be able to hold IGNs.
    If they care, they still have till june to log in.

    That is incorrect.
    Last time we had an IGN purge, the names were only changed.
    But this time, the characters themselves will get deleted. Even if they have rare old items.
