    Suggestion: Event Hall fix = Evict Cassandra, Gaga, and Maple Admin to a room of thier own or just in the Event notifier. Just get those Lag Monsters Out of the Event Hall Please.

    I agree with just adding Cassandra and Maple Admin quests to the lightbulb/star icons... Who needs them as npc's...?
    Would cause less lag! :3

    The lag seems relevant to the video card (nvidia or ati) and software version used.

    My 'shop' laptop (HP elitebook 8440p) with i5 core and nvidia 3100 mobile graphics card using the 186.x software, win7 pro x64, has no issues in the event hall.

    My bedroom laptop (HP elitebook 8530p) with amd core duo and ati mobile graphics *edit-insert info-->* radeon hd 3650 (most recent drivers), vista pro x64, totally locks (goes to about 1 frame per 5-10 seconds if I can't leave immediately) in event hall.

    My house pc (custom build) with amd fx-4150 and ati r7 280 graphics (latest driver), win7 pro x86, struggles a bit in the event hall but, with an overclock on the cpu and pci slot, I can at least move around with a mid/heavy frame drop.

    The event hall... maybe game itself seems to be favouring nVidia graphics and built 'optimized' to out of date drivers.

    My 'shop' laptop seems to run the game the best despite being the mid powered computer, compared to my other two.

    I do not own anything that runs the intel integrated graphics... so I cannot speak for that.

    ***strike edit... very sorry, I remembered wrong... I was running the 186 nVida software when my shop laptop was running vista pro x64 (newer software versions would not work properly on my tv).
    I am currently running nVidia 341.96 software on my current win7 OS.

    Just to add... the bigger problem with all my computers is the game randomly crashes/closes regardless of platfom/internet speed

    Crashing/being able to even get to start playing the game is a much bigger issue IMO... if the game doesn't start... the event hall issue is a moot point....

    Why is the NPC for the Sengoku event in the Event Hall to begin with? For the longest time the NPC was in Leafre and Henesys. It's ridiculous to put it in a place that some users can't access.

    I think this is the first Sengoku event I can't participate in, either due to the NPC being located elsewhere, or the lag in the Event Hall being only moderately miserable. But now that it's impossible, I'm out. I'm seriously getting annoyed with this. The last several events I've been unable to participate in because of it.


    And just checked out the Event Hall on my brand new laptop. Still lagged to death. What a joke. Is $800 not good enough for this lousy game? Did I need to spend a grand? FIX YOUR GARBAGE CODING! Thanks.

    Just for posture... this is my shop laptop (HP 8440) attached to my tv to show that at least one of my computers can survive the Event Hall programming/coding ? issue...

    Nexon you need to fix this event hall lag ASAP or just put the Sengoku High NPC back in Henesys and Leafre like you always have! Dunno why you decided to put her in the death trap event hall and don't give us the "the issue is being investigated" line cause we know you're not doing it! I was looking forward to Sengoku High too...so disappointed that I can't participate due to the NPC being in the "Lag Hall" Event Hall. So disappointed...

    This event hall lag is unacceptable. This has been going on for months and months and it seems like the more events Nexon has and the more complaints they get about this issue, the more event NPCs get put INTO the event hall, despite never having been in there before. I don't see why Nexon can't put the current event NPC in a location that people can access, like Henesys, rather than put it in a place half the players can't reach and then blame the player base (just had a GM in customer support live chat tell me it was on my end since "many" players don't have this problem, even though many players do.) There have been so many complaints about this for months and months and rather than accommodating the players that can't reach this map, you keep telling them it is on their end.

    The problem seems that US Nexon cannot really do much to change the core problems of the game (functionality/coding). They seem to just be a bug reporting service and typo editor for the game. Hence, all core functionality of the game goes unfixed until it affects the true Nexon income.

    The other problem seems that there is a 'works on my computer' mentality. Just because the game functions properly with the testing bubble of Nexon, does no equate the game working in real world application. So, as people complain the 'X' doesn't work... when a US bug reporter looks at it and it is found within the PC in the Nexon corperation to be 'just fine'... it is not a problem.

    The thing is.. just because a game works mostly for a majority (51%)... that doesn't mean there isn't a fundamental problem with the game working correctly.

    A simple game (graphics/core... this isn't a hardcore 3D, super resolution texture game with tons of AI) such as this should work for ALL people, easily and shouldn't require a 50+mb internet connection, and 8 core 4ghz+ cpu, 16g+b RAM super gaming setup.

    Prior to Big Bang, Maple could run on my (now well retired) Dell 2.6ghz celeron with 2gb RAM and integrated intel graphics. Every since... every update slows the game down and nudges you closer to needing the computer the runs the NSA.

    It's a bit absurd. IMO
