    we already screwed up the big update with our sh!tty server, constant d/c, lag, Burning event bug etc, we also shut down Gollux to fix it and now we put a limit on your vcoin cap per day to 10 so you can have fun time with our event. Do you know why it's 10, because we like it that way. You players might hate us whatever but hey, we still update our cash shop items weekly, dont forget to check them out and buy, we have massive discount sure you will like it, that will be our compensation

    Not all of Nexon's customer support staff play MapleStory or are actively aware of every single event going on. That's why is very helpful to them to be as clear as possible.

    I love how Nexon thinks....
    Hackers everywhere? Nah... no problem.
    Bots everywhere? Just chill.
    Bugs that can ruin the experience? We got time to fix this.
    Lag issues? Just DC everyone in every 10 minutes and everything will be fine.

    Players getting benefits from an event? *NEXON TRIGGERED*
    -Phew guys today's maintenance went pretty well. We managed to finish everything by 7:00PM lest put the servers back on
    -WAIT!!! We forgot to ruin the holiday events
    -Oh thank god you mentioned that. The players almost had a nice Maple Christmas.

    This was the Merry Xmas message to all players from Nexon! Which translates into we have your money morons! Keep spending while we don't give a damn!

    It almost seams like Nexon NA is a huge social experiment which is testing how bad a service can be and still give profit from exploiting gambling addiction and taking advantage of the fragile personality of some players that need to use this game to boost their poor self-esteem by flaunting their dmg. A perfect portrait of modern society , people are treated like crap and even want to pay to be treated like crap in exchange for things that have no real value.

    To be honest, I wish I didn't care about any of this and I could just walk away from the years I have invested in this game...but it's just such a huge shame to see an otherwise extremely fun and great game (which could easily be the best most successful game in the MMO world, if things were run correctly) circling the toilet because of an apathetic and disconnected team at the helm.

    It's not the game itself, but the people in charge of it, making these absolutely asinine changes, that are wrecking the experience for us players. It's one thing to adjust things and completely another to nerf things TO THE DAMN GROUND with an event like they just did. It's insulting and confusing that they haven't even given a peep of a good and insightful response as to why they are doing this to us.

    Note that I pointed to the company, not the game itself. Nexon NA is a despicable company, doesn't show any respect by their player base. Do not expect a response because we aren't going to get one. They are sadistic to the point of only mentioning the coin cap in the notes after the maintenance was done, plus they didn't even mention that the drop rate of the boxes was cut by 1/4. The major bugs weren't fixed, but they made sure of spending their time programming a way to poop on the players enjoyment of the event.
    Like I said Nexon NA= huge social experiment, you can have a company run by psicological unbalanced people and still have profit.

    I only got my ring because I read reddit and the forums about the previous years nerfs.

    Cannot agree more with bold. Game is really good, but there are design flaws introduced by the people in charge.

    I only got my ring because I read reddit and the forums about the previous years nerfs.
    I did also get the ring because of this knowledge, which is not even how it should be. I felt a dismal sense of melancholy while farming the boxes, knowing what was more than likely coming next, and that I could not possibly later complete the task of getting the ring or some damage skins on other characters. Also preemptively feeling the pain to come from countless others who would suffer as a result.. A lot of new and uninformed people didn't see this coming and are experiencing the same shock we did last year with the reboot coin event.

    At 40 V Coins a day it will take 3 days to upgrade Vengeful Ring 2 times when you are able to buy 3 a day. Plus the prices in the shop are just crazy, like the 1,300 V Coins for Hall of Maple Warriors. Also the 27th is last day to get anything you want from the shop because the 28th V Coin Shop 2 opens. So as it is right now you can get about 680 - 720 more coins before the 2nd coin shop opens if you don't miss a single day.

    Edit: Forgot the V Boxes leave is 5 days so you can only get about 300 coins before the new shop opens
    Edit: It's Party Time starts when the V Boxes leave and you can get more coins that way

    It turns out I am still lagging and disconnecting non stop today.

    I wonder what they actually fixed with the extended patch yesterday.... Well, other than stirring up this epic poop storm.

    I saw some one sitting on the "Hall of Maple Warriors" chair in Henesys, and a group of players standing around, pining over the fact that they didn't have it yet and how at this rate, they'd have to log in for weeks before they could get one. Yet this fella got it in one day, because he knew what Nexon was going to do ahead of time.

    "A better Maple" they said....
    "Hear directly from you what changes or improvements you’d like to see" they said...

    Well, now you're hearing it directly from us, Nexon. Don't do this to your players.

    I am not going to lie, coming back as a lvl 222 player, I had fun collecting boxes, seeing actual upgrade process. Try out the new ring. The limit killed all my joy. Dont get me wrong sure have a limit, but make it reasonable..with the 10 coins..why even open a shop to display the other things? people will just opt towards the best anyway, And plus they messed up the coding in the first place so people can still bypass the limit. Honestly I usually dont comment on the issues that arise on big content update, but they have been botching it up from what I see. And PLEASE can we actually get some answers or a communication? It is so childish to phantom nerf the limit and update it on the site hours later, like really now?

    I would really like for Nexon to explain what the significance of 10 for the cap is. They could have just put a character cap of say 1000 from the shining boxes instead of making it so ridiculously low per day.

    tbh, 100 coins per day from santa boxes would be reasonable like how they always did. 10 coins is probably a mistake.... I HOPE IT IS !!!

    Nexon failed with maintenances in a very hardcore-fail-manner, and once maplers get a taste of pure joy of unlimited V Coins, Nexon absolutely MUST fail some more and nerf it down to a rather ridiculous number that most people can count with their fingers.
    Failure after failure has made me feel reluctant and unwilling to even play MapleStory. Fun was withdrawn in one maintenance.
    I guess it's about time I invest less money on RNG things in the cash shop. It's a waste of cash anyways.
    I will still be playing MapleStory, but the amount of disappintment Nexon has caused to me with their foolishness is undescribable. I will not forgive it.

    Tip for Nexon: more carrots, less sticks.
