June 6th is coming up with the removal of all legacy characters

This is gonna free alot of old used names over all the years of maplestory being up...
But the cost to pick up some of those old names is 15k NX?
I'd rather make a new character than pay 15$ for a mere name change

If it was like 3k NX
Probably
Even better if you have a temporary name change event when the deletion happens on June 6th

    I'm down for an name change event or temp discount on codes but I think they have it at that cost just cause of how much it changes in game and if someone where to scam someone they could simply name change.

    I dont think he meant legacy characters. Just characters under 61 and that havent had the account logged in for awhile.

    Fighting the need to take the high road here and failing miserably. Oh well.

    Look, I read your other post about being burned out, too. No one's forcing you to play this game. There are tons of other MMOs out there. Guess what, though? All of them are flawed in some way. Also, name change has always been $15. Seems a little steep, but it's better than being stuck with something you don't like. But again, no one's forcing you to stay.
