Compensation for down time on Event?

I was wondering if we could possibly get some form of Compensation on events since Nexon updated during Reset...

Only had to do 3 more boxes for the OverRide Event for the absolab weapon per day until the last day and Nexon updates and causes everyone to lose a day of progress because they want to *Update during Reset and take 9hrs extra*. This is annoying since I have to work at 3PM and reset is at 6PM and I sleep from 5am-12PM.

My only time to play is during the night so now I won't have time to do my boxes for Tonight since the game is down...

This update basically wasted an entire day for most people with normal schedules also that either Work or have School. The minute they got home the game was down and they couldn't do the Daily Boxes. It seems like every event that gives something good in the end becomes 5x harder than it already is because of an Update... or some other random reason, Glitch/Server crashes/ect.


P.S. I don't normally make posts about compensation because I feel like an ass doing it and I don't feel like Compensation is ever needed for most of the small issues they stem from. But this is utter bull, I just got done wasting hrs of my time daily for like almost a full month and right when I'm about 4 days from completion Nexon pulls this crap where they *Have to* update during Reset. If you take into account the 3-4hrs of time needed for the boxes to be Completed and the amount of days needed you can see that I and many others have wasted over 90hrs+ doing this event and now Nexon is going to screw us out of a full day of progress, which for some people could leave them a full day short thus wasting 90hrs+ on nothing.

    [Update] 2:20 AM PDT: MapleStory is still undergoing maintenance and we still do not have an ETA. Fortunately, we were able to resolve one of the major issues we encountered. Please bear with us as we proceed to address the remaining issues. Thank you for your patience!

    We're probably going to get safety charms, buff freezers and power elixirs, 2x exp/drop coupons, coins and the like just as every other compensation goes during an event. I can't recall the last time I ever felt genuinely compensated for Nexon's incompetence.

    So long as part of the compensation is 4 boxes checked off the current Takeover event and not the next one, I'm good with whatever they think is enough.

    We usually get compensation for prolonged inconvinient downtime.

    What do you guys think would be fitting as compensation?

    I love how people are crying over compensation... You guys know you had over half a day to complete yesterdays, as well as (probably) at least half a day to complete today's yet! For those complaining about being busy, you still have ample time to complete any of the events going on. Nothing (Aside from MAYBE Sengoku) takes every day to complete, there are always extra "padding" days. So the ONLY reason you wouldn't be able to complete something is either due to procrastination (Your OWN fault) or a vacation (which you should be grateful for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I honestly don't understand all this entitled whining xD That being said, I would never turn down compensation, but I feel like 2x cards / override coins, are PERFECT forms of compensation if they decide to give us some, because realistically that's the only thing you are truly missing out on.

    I honestly dont care about how long the servers are down or if i miss dailies or anything. What frustrates me trough the roof is that they dont share ANY information, they update us every few HOURS, and finally, this delay on patches/updates happens nearly EVERY time.

    Same. This is one thing I can definitely agree with. I don't enjoy being in the dark. But I guess if they truly don't know, giving out an estimate will only make people further whine when that time comes to pass with no up-time xD

    Like I said... I never whine or complain about compensation. But this is different, I spend 100hrs to get those boxes to be fked out of the end goal. That is s**** on Nexons end. Both as a Bussiness Strategy and way to treat players. You can shut down the servers and make me lose time training and i'm fine, But if you are going to create an Event that is beyond retarded in the way of time needed to complete it and how long it takes then the least you can do is let the players ACTUALLY do the Event rather than wait until the end and rip it from them after so much hard work.

    Further more... we didn't have all of yesterday. Maintenance was meant for 5am... they changed that but the Game still went offline for a bunch of players. So, in fact, Maplestory was DOWN all day yesterday besides like 2 or so Hours for a lot of people (The Events takes about 4Hrs+). So no we didn't have time to finish crap.

    They did it once and they can do it again. I expect to see 4 more boxes ticked off when I log in tomorrow morning.

    Update to my original post. The event is removed in-game, Wonderful... also the recent patch notes are saying the OverRide TakeOver Event now starts July 26th - Aug 29th.

    That... that is a thing now. Would really love some new Info on what is going on Nexon, I figured it being taken out was either a Glitch or they were fixing it for compensation. But that Patch Note bit has now confused me beyond anything.

    My face if the event truly is being *Restarted* and i just wasted 100+ hrs of my time on seemingly a Practice Event http://imgur.com/a/m30u8

    3 extra sengoku passes
    3 2x drop
    3 2x exp

    4 TakeOver boxes

    I think this would be fine.

    tbh... i'd be fine with the 3 passes and boxes. Chances are were getting 2x for weekends as is because of overide. We can wait a day
