Hey MS forums.
So recently looked at the MVP rewards and just wow. I don't feel like nexon is actually giving us anything for spending so much nx. I mean seriously.
no disclaimer, i know everyone is going to post, well they didn't have to give us MVP rewards in the first place. Well they did and the rewards are insanley cheap. Especially Diamond reward. 900$ for it.
mv1dgh34.jpg
Okay now here are the requirements if you did not see them.
MVP Bronze Tier Lifetime Amount of NX Spent
I 10,000 NX – 99,999 NX
II 100,000 NX – 199,999 NX
III 200,000 – 299,999 NX
IV 300,000 or more NX
MVP Special Tier Amount of NX Spent Within the Last 3 Months
Silver 300,000 – 599,999 NX
Gold 600,000 – 899,999 NX
Diamond 900,000 or more NX
Now listen the tier I Through IV is Lifetime amount spent. Not bad but not good since the rewards expire.
Here is a little reward we get.
MVP Special members receive a discount when enhancing items using Star Force. Discounts are given to enhancements for 1 -17 stars. Superior-ranked items are excluded from the discount.
MVP Special Silver: 3% discount
MVP Special Gold: 5% discount
MVP Special Diamond: 10% discount
Why are Super Ranked items excluded???
Also this isn't anything just a tiny discount probably 300k or 1mil. It costs like 45m to Star Force a tyrant cape. Anyway not worth it.
MVP Special members receive benefits when using the Auction House (in non-Reboot worlds only). All MVP Special members will automatically receive 10 additional Listing and Purchase slots, allowing them to buy and sell more items at a time. The sales fee will also be reduced to only 3% of the final auction amount
This isn't bad but a lot of people don't even know about the Auction house or know how to use it. When i mean a lot. i mean about 50% of Population.
All MVP members receive a daily gift package containing one to four random items depending on your MVP level. The gifts can be claimed on one character per account. To receive the gifts, click the ‘Daily Pack’ button on the MVP Service UI within the Cash Shop.
No clue on what the rewards are for this. Also probably expire like everything else.
Now lets get into the Tier Rewards...

    Now listen, Again they didn't have to create these Maple Value Points Rewards. The fact is that they did. it's not to give the players an advantage at the game more like take advantage of their money. 900$ for everything expiring. A couple discounts on Star force and more slots for auction house which a lot of players still don't know about.
    Wow nexon seriously showing your players some love.
    Make most of those items Perm and i will seriously go to the store and buy 900$ worth of nx.
    The chair, Medals, Maybe the shop, Damage Skin, Chat & Quote rings.. Like cmon. Nothing IS PERM! not even the crappy potions like WHAT?? POTIONS EXPIRE?

    It's not a scam since everything is spelled out for you, including the expirations.

    Also, it's not that you pay $900 for the crappy expiring rewards. You pay $900 for whatever you wanted to buy with that money: cubes, surprise boxes, philosopher's books, etc. The rewards are in addition to that.

    I agree it's very greedy of Nexon to make everything expire. They're basically saying that, while they appreciate you for spending a lot on them, they will instantly stop appreciating you if you don't keep spending at the same rate.


    As always, caveat emptor.

    Before this people who spent money on nx got only reward points.. so its much better than before..

    I personally don't care about add-ons they do for p2w.. and if they do we should thank them.

    The reality is, that everyone will eventually be silver the minute they spend any money of the bronze tiers.

    Also, the exp buff stacks with other exp system, so that is pretty nice.
    Did not know this but thanks. Also that's like the only good item tbh.

    Well it is a scam in my case, they want you to spend NX on flashy rewards but if you don't read everything you won't notice they all expire. Even the potions like cmmon....
    Also 900$ for whatever i want. I don't need anything. I'm an Item collector, Chair collector, & Title collector. I need those but cannot recieve them because they all expire. Spending 900$ on about 5 things is cool if they were perm. I want the chair title and those chat rings.
    I would spend 900$ right now if they changed those to perm. No problem.

    That is true but still like can you just make one thing perm? Diamond maybe. 900$ for un perm items and expires in 1 month for a 3 month Spend 900$ on the game is stupid.

    Wow all this for only $900 a mo. OMG! Where is my wallet?
    Who comes up with these ideas? Who comes up with these ideas, presents it to their boss/ think tank then their boss/think tank signs off on the idea and they spend time coding this in game.

    I'm so salty right now.

    I mean, personally I'd just say don't spend that. They're extra rewards for spending, not mandatory.

    The only scam is that hey decided to release this when the game has already began to wither away. I guess they think more people will spend NX now that the MVP system has been added.

    Think of the rewards as more of an addition to what you're already purchasing, If you're spending nx for the sole purpose of the title of diamond then you're missing the point of the mvp system (though i still do think the money required is too high).

    Yeah exactly, since the bronze tiers are never expiring. The minute you are the final Bronze tier. Spending just 1cent more than 300 makes you silver. So it's not too bad to get the first tier. Getting more then that is just extra.

    That is incorrect.
    If you spend $300 over the course of a year, for example, that will make you Bronze IV but won't bring you any closer to Silver.
    Even if you do spend $300 in one month, 3 months later you will no longer be Silver, and spending one more cent - or anything less than $300 - won't make you Silver.
    Hell, even if you spend $1000000 in one month, 3 months later you will no longer be Diamond, or Gold, or even Silver, and spending anything less than $300 again won't give you any Special rank.

    So basically, as pretty much everyone has already surmised, if you already spend that kind of money on a monthly basis, then these are some extras for you alongside what you normally spend your money on. This isn't something you should start sinking shitheaps of money into the game for.

    exactly, the OP is an OCD collector though from what it looks like. it's not a scam and it's not giving any crazy advantages that would make things more P2W

    Yeah i know its just more rewards for buying nx. That's not the point im going to though. Everything expires.. Why? I am a CHAIR, Item, NX, and Title collector. I need those items to be perm. I don't spend nx other than anvils. Other than that i don't purchase nx. If those items were perm. I would literally spend 900$ on it just to get those few items.

    Exactly. Like i think thats a total ripoff. 300$ a month just to get silver for a month.
    Not worth it.

    That's the point though. I would sink shitton of heaps of money to get the Chair, Title, and Nx items perm. Also maybe the Mushy and damage skin lol.

    Reminds me of the game, pre-big bang when it was a lot more social and there'd be a group hanging out in HHG or in Kerning and then there'd always be that fool that wanted to brag about how much money he had or spent and would do stupid stuff like smega'ing the alphabet one letter at a time.

    Yeah motivate players to drop NINEHUNDRED USD for a shop that STILL expires. best promotion i've ever heard of
