Seriously this has to be some kind of a joke. It has been well over a month since the lag has been more than usual and Nexon is not even trying to do anything about it anymore. They haven't had a maintenance to improve server stability or anything!

@OneLetter , do you just plan on letting players quit to decrease the amount of players? Is THAT how you plan to fix the lag issue? If it is PLEASE ANSWER US. Im sick of this false hope and waiting for the game to be playable. Not to mention, here come even more 2x events that make the lag UNBEARABLE! We. Do not. Want. 2x events. What's the point of having these dam forums if you don't listen to us or our opinions/input? So frustrating!

    They will NEVER fix it.
    I wish that its gone too but it seems they are not able to.
    Seriously I got kicked two times because of the lag.
    Also i couldnt fight bosses with my ice lightning mage cause the lag delays my teleport and I die.

    FIX IT NEXON

    WE ARE IN THE 21 CENTURY.
    IF OTHER MMOS HAVE MOSTLY STABLE SERVER WHY CAN'T MAPLESTORY HAVE THEM TOO.

    I don't really see what they're excuse could possibly be. They've known the migration + 5th job patch would have A LOT more people. They should've anticipated this would happen and have properly fixed it by now. The migration was announced over 6 months ago!

    Yeah seriously. We've been complaining about the event hall for over a month as well. If you can't fix the lag, at least get the moon bunny out >_>

    I stopped playing ever since the lag began which is well before I made my lagonball thread which was back in October. I haven't played since October. Nexon can take that as they will. I can easily continue not playing so long as the lag persists.

    im confident in their ability to fix the server issues, a little bit of patience from all of us will go a long way.

    It's the new community forums. If you don't demand fixes at an unreasonable time frame or don't call Nexon incompetent of some sort then people won't like you here.

    As for the lag. I'm sure it will be fixed. Seems it's very much playable judging from how the server populations look.

    I still just play during the slower times outside of 2x events. I'd also rather just not have them going on, but it looks like they have no intentions of getting rid of timed 2x events. So the best we can do right now is to just play during 1x. I don't even know how some people can run a group of 6 in populous areas during those events, but I still see it happening and somehow they still stay connected and can actually see their skills enough to mob. Maybe they know something we don't.

    @Booberpuppy They don't need to see anything if they have transparency options set for graphics. In terms of connection though that's a completely different story. Although I do know that one of my friends that went on a vacation was pretty close to their headquarters and had little to no lag during 2x. While me in Canada had to suffer an unholy amount of lag that I've never seen in the past decade.

    During 1x it is a little less laggy and I start to notice some channels are better for me than some others. One thing is certain, something must have been changed that started all this lag. As if the anti-hack disconnection, bugs, and unstable client wasn't already a problem itself. It's quite a headache to deal with since we players can't just "fix it". We have to rely on the devs and publishers to get things done.

    While I'm not optimistic that they'll get down to it, I just really hope they do, eventually.

    Even major games like World of Warcraft have that issue with their games. When you don't live close to the primary servers you play on then it will cause lag of some sort. Countless mmo's have this problem.

    I would advise you to not play during 2x EXP and DROP because Reboot's lag skyrockets during those times. I'm not sure if that affects server lag, but boy.. is it laggy during 2x in Reboot.

    Personally I don't think the server can handle that many people. Even I had a hard time coming to terms with how many people returned for ReBoot and 5th job.

    Fix is coming. It's called when all the returning players who came back for 5th job hype quit again near when the holidays end.

    : "@Booberpuppy They don't need to see anything if they have transparency options set for graphics."
    Does the graphics setting make a difference with lag during busy times with groups? I haven't noticed any difference, personally. I like to keep the player graphic set to opaque so I can see if I need to thump some kishin caster's head for slacking off.

    Honestly, most of the time i don't see much diference with or without the graphics in low in my computer, mosf of the lag is either the server/their connection or my internet, so i don't think that really helps the lag, overall seens to be the amount of new players and the v patch with new stuff, all we have to do is wait now.

    The tendency is that more people play in relation to before so if it would be connection issue they should upgrade it(i think it's more the codes tought).

    too be honest it seems like the server spikes the moment the 2x exp begins, it's rather odd.

    @Ivangold Yeah I would doubt upgrading would do anything if a majority of my alliance complains about random disconnections, lag, bugs, etc. Can't really fix something that isn't the problem of the players.

    @bumbertyr So I'm not the only one who experiences this strange phenomenon of 2x EXP/DROP Event causing more lag the moment it starts, and halts when it's over.

    @its2sharp4u no you're not, they're definitely connected.
