    Is everything that occurs and involves the cash shop viewed as a conspiracy or something?

    Not only that, but Violet Cubes are making an appearance alongside DMT. Doesn't everyone spend half the year begging for and speculating on when DMT is coming up anyway?

    Never mind that, but you're not being forced to partake in any of this.

    Yes, Nexon purposely jammed all these NX sales and events before giving out the 100k MP for the World Record winners (which they will be giving out on the 15th). It's Nexon playing strategic, but the player's aren't dumb and can clearly see this.

    While these events and contents are a major draw for the purchasing of NX, I do not see how this indicates as you've said. It has been a reasonable time since the last Miracle Time and Philosopher's Book release, so I'd see it more as a coincidence that their releases overlapped. Just because of this happening in no way indicates internal activity toward the players, improving and adding upon the game has stopped. And as already noted and should be remembered, participation with these is optional.

    I don't see this as a coincidence at all. It's been about 3 months since the last MT. Correct me if I'm wrong, but back then there would only be 2 or 3 MT per YEAR and it's been 3 months since the last MT. And while I'm not complaining about the frequency in which it occurs, you cannot say that these NX-only events are a coincidence. Especially since the release of the MVP system. I would not be surprised, not a single grain of sand, if Marvel comes next week or sometime this month.

    It's like AKRadian said "They're just giving you a chance to earn Diamond rank quickly." But you're right Mega, participation is optional.

    What does that mean? And also what do you mean by "improving and adding upon the game has stopped"?

    If I recall correctly, while there was a relatively long period without a Double Miracle Time last year, otherwise the spacing between them has been around 3 months. And that statement was noting that there is more going on with the game than Philosopher's Books and Double Miracle Times, as the use of "only" in the topic post felt to be influenced by a relatively narrow view of the game activities.

    It's also still too early to get the Unique scrolls from attendance, which is just an odd decision to me. Surely more people would be willing to cube stuff that's already Unique right? Why not wait til after, when people have more stuff that they're tempted to cube?

    I couldn't even login till this morning duo to the problems we had with Nexon Launcher. Couldn't even participate in the double miracle time event while i was planning to finally cube my additional potentials.

    Thanks a lot Nexon.
