I'm sure many of us here aren't able to play due to those stupid events. Last weekend was probably the only weekend I was able to play in the past few months.

    I gave up on my level (at 81%) cuz of three GM police DCs that cancelled my 2x drop buffs.

    You know the game is in bad shape when even the players don't want 2x exp and drop...

    They should just issue items that give you 2x Exp and stack with other buffs instead of making the entire server 2x Exp. Let people train and grind when they want to instead of forcing everyone on at once, adding even more lag to the already almost unplayable lag and server stress.

    I was at FES2 in Reboot just a little while ago, and in half the channels there is no activity on the map. From my understanding, that place is usually a total upside down and inside out zoo during 2X. You know there's a huge problem when such popular training areas are having cricket noises.

    Strange, I don't experience much lag during 2x or at anytime for that matter, and my internet is not very good. I'm almost convinced at this point that people just complain and rant about anything, whether it is legitimate or not, because they can get away with it due to the standards we set. Of course it could legitimately be that Nexon is to 100% blame and somehow I am the only one that escaped this whole lag problem, but I highly doubt it and I think it's more like people exaggerating a small issue that is easy to work around into an unsolvable, game breaking issue.

    Do you live right next to Nexon HQ?

    I think you actually are one of the few somehow getting around this, and you're ridiculously lucky. The game is so massively laggy that it makes playing basically impossible during 2x Exp. Think entire screens of monsters basically freezing and refusing to register that they've already been dealt enough damage to die, or the game not recognizing that you've hit the buttons to Pot/Buff/Attack/Etc, and you'll get the idea.

    Lol, we don't even need 2x for the game to lag that bad anymore. The game was super laggy after reset yesterday and 2x wasn't in effect.

    This very last 2x is the worst by far. I wanted to level my kinesis (like 3-4 more levels for lvl 2 link skill) but I gave up after I literally couldn't use a single attacking skill. As I grabbed the mobs it wouldn't register it and rather than hitting, it kept grabbing the same mobs, lmao. I think it's time to just get some break from the game while this 2x event lasts.

    I have the exact same problem on my kinesis during the 2x. I can not use psychic grab AT ALL. Impossibru. I have to hang up and dial again later.

    I honestly thought things would let up after the V hype passed, but people are still turning up in seemingly even larger quantities for these events and training. If it is going to remain this way for good now, they should really consider investing in a second reboot server.

    Too bad that since people keep filling Nexon's coffers constantly by purchasing endless Premium Surprise Style Boxes, no matter how screwed up the one and only ridiculously overpopulated server is, that isn't going to happen because Nexon meets or exceeds quotas = no fks given. They can just continue to pretend like everything is "working as intended"

    Plus, the lag keeps everyone in the game longer. Think about it. Buffs are on a clock that just keep ticking regardless of lag. I think the same happens with the times that players are logged into the game. The longer you stay in the game, they get more traffic and such. Better for them.

    UNPLAYABLE is the only way to describe this game right now. Whatever Nexon is or isn't doing is not working. So frustrating to get disconnected by maple police when its YOUR fault I'm lagging. Fix your game Nexon or GO HOME!

    Why has lag been permitted to last for about 2 months? Like what in the actual is wrong with this company? Are they this money starved to have a goddamn proper working game? Do they even have an inkling of a idea of what's going on; do they think they "yeah, guys we totally fixed the lag the last time we preformed the software updates on our systems! :DDDDD" ? Every time I report this lag to customer support, they just hit me with the "fix your connection" bullshit even though their whole player base is lagging. I bet they wouldn't be able to get a goddamn clue if 70% of the player base spammed them that they were lagging. LIKE HOLY DO I HAVE TO SUCK OFF EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU GODDAMN MONKIES!? I WILL IF IT MEANS THAT I CAN COME HOME FROM A DAY OF WORK AND PLAY THIS STUPID ASS 2D GAME. I WILL SWALLOW GALLONS OF YOUR JUICES, PLEASE!
