Well, first thing is first, which are the positives.
I'm pretty happy with seeing some more of an inside look of the content that is to come. I'm also happy with some of the confirmations they gave us about the big problems going on right now, such as the extreme lag issues, which are apparently being addressed as we speak. Things look promising on that front after what was said, and I am being hopeful about it.
Also, I really long to see Gollux return, and I'm sure I am not alone with that sentiment. I'm glad they acknowledged that they are working on fixing that boss.
However, let me get right to this- I am NOT happy AT ALL with the dodgy answer given about the unreasonable limit on V coins from the Santa boxes. A lot of people, in fact most every one I know and have seen on these forums, felt extremely cheated because of the change they put in place, and I felt we deserved a better answer than the "because reasons" answer we were given. One of the main reasons I felt compelled to watch the stream was to see if they would have the balls to address that problem.
After a bit of obvious mental fishing for *something/anything* to throw out there, we were given this- that it was put in place so that we, as players, "would focus on other events instead of just that one" in so many words. But, over the last few days, the Santa boxes/V coin shop WAS THE MAIN EVENT THAT EVERY ONE CARED GREATLY ABOUT AND WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO THE MOST! The annual traditional Maplemas content is the sole reason I returned, and I did not even know about the fifth job 'till I re-installed and logged in, only to be met with this big "V" flashy video in my face. Again, I do not think the whole unlimited coins thing was really a great option, but the 10 coins a day thing was a very insulting nerf that had a huge backlash and was quite unreasonable.
I just do not get it, guys. Even when the majority of players are severely discontent with such a nerf and have endlessly voiced it, why is Nexon still not willing to give players what they want during these sort of special events, or at least given an honest straight-forward answer as to why they don't want to give something back to their loyal players for even bothering to still log in? Between last year and now, the only thing I can deduce right now is resent toward players for something that was THEIR FAULT in the first place. If they mean otherwise, they need to do much better with their justification of such changes and quit giving us the silent treatment and these crappy invalid excuses.
EDIT: INB4 "there are more V coin events coming, so chill T F out" I get that and I truly hope they redeem us for the mistake they made. I still just wanted to see a better PR type response from Nexon's representatives than what we were given!
