I think that would be awesome since everyone can play as pink bean without missing out on it.

    Do you think all events should be permanent, so everyone can participate without missing out on them?

    You were on a break when this event was released. Deal with it. Move on.

    It's a class though..... not like every event.

    For me I would like to see it permanent I reached 200 on mine. But I would like to see more character slots first.

    Yeah me too. It's a class, not an event. Why not make it permanent?

    It's a toy class.
    Its appearance is fixed, you can't see what equips you're wearing and you can't use any cosmetics.
    It has maybe half a dozen skills all told, no job advancements as such, can't learn professions, and of course no 5th job.
    It can't use storage or Cash Shop.
    It's completely unbalanced, with artificial damage and exp multipliers to make it not too grindy to level up.

    It's fun to play for a month, but it's nowhere near usable as a real class.

    Then fix it nexon. Change it into a permanent class. Add job advancements to it. Or are they too lazy to even do that?

    Face it nexon. You're finished.......

    It doesn't need fixing, it's not broken.
    It was intended as a toy, as a fun event for enjoyment and for rewards for your other characters. And for that purpose, it was perfect.
    Just because you'd like it to be something else doesn't make it broken, nor does it make Nexon lazy if they don't want to change it.

    Pink Bean is certainly one of the more quirky playable characters to play as with funny-cutesy skill animations. That having been said, there really is no general value in keeping the little guy around. PB provides no real innovations in MS game mechanics, and his playstyle tends to grow stale rather quickly.

    Having PB around as an event is perfectly fine, but let's not have the little guy overstay his welcome.

    This guy gets it. It was fun while it lasted, but was otherwise horribly boring to play. I've never seen a single person who hit 200 on their PB during the event who said "wow that was fun I hope they make these permanent". Rather, most of what I saw was "OH GOD I'M FINALLY DONE WITH THIS NIGHTMARE"

    So? Make it better. Classes can be changed to be made into a better more fun class. Pink bean can have job advancements too. This sways away from the typical legends or tempest classes.

    They actually added more skills in the second coming of pink bean in KMS which we never received . Sure it wasn't the most fun class but not all classes are fun, It could always be improved upon if it was made permanent.

    Exactly. Too bad nexon is too lazy making money instead of fixing things.

    It was a pretty fun event. I don't see why it shouldn't be re released.

    As an event? Sure! As permanent content? No.

    What makes you believe that event content should be added to the game as permanent content?

    It's a class made for the purposes of being an event.

    they wanted to have an event that wasnt just "kill 500 this" or "collect 3000 of that" the Pinkbean event makes a really good contrast to the bland kill and collect events we constantly have, just because it's a playable character doen't mean it needs to be permanent content.

    it's like saying we need this valentines day events to become permanent cause they give useful buffs, or we need maplehood watch to become permanent content because it gives us things that we may want.

    I don't want Pink Bean as permanent content. It was no fun to play (and everyone who got it to level 200 kept megaphoning that they were GLAD to be done), it was OP, and really adds nothing to the world of Maplestory. It didn't even have a story past level 10. As an event, it's an OK distraction. But as a class, NO. The resources used to develop a monster into a class that adds nothing to the story could be used to make another class that adds something to the game. Not just some LOL class. It can stay an event class.
