I’m sick and tired of op players especially during 2x events ks other players. Nexon this is ridiculous and it’s your fault this is happening. You don’t do nothing!

    What exactly do you propose?
    Maps now belong to the player that's been there the longest? Attacking a monster first makes it so that only you can kill it?

    This is why I play on 'dead' servers. Hardly any KS'ing.

    If Nexon knew how to properly design maps and didn't always have 1 map being 10x better than every other one in the area then it wouldn't be a problem.

    It's probably not that they don't know how to properly design maps. It's more as if it was intentional, but of course it needs to change. One map being largely more significant than others will result in toxicity.

    On the other hand, we've seen changes towards training areas for the worse. Some examples such as Lion King's Castle, Knight Stronghold, Alien Base, Haunted House, Blackgate (this is more mesos farming, but still a good example), Twilight Perion. The list keeps going on.

    That rule doesn't always apply.
    I grinded with my dawn warrior at drakes for 2 hours.
    Suddenly a hayato comes and ks me even though he exactly knew it was my map.

    You're misreading my post.
    'I was here first, CC' is a rule/agreement made by the players themselves, not Nexon, so of course it would have no real binding power to enforce.

    My post was asking if TC would be happy if Nexon did make it a feature of the game, but that shares its own problems like disconnections making you lose your map or afk'ers hogging them. Seeing as TC never gave a suggestion as to how Nexon should go about to fix it, Nexon probably sees this much like how the government sees people who claim 'We need to end homelessness' without having a plan in mind: Something that doesn't seem dire enought to be touched on atm.

    My class isn't that great at mobbing, so I have no problem sharing a map as long as the other person let's me have a tiny corner somewhere. People prefer to KS, though, which is annoying.

    I dont know what sever you are playing, but you should be thankful there's people that exist to ks you. I don't know about anyone else, but I actually miss people telling me to cc, or lagging out of the fm because it was too crowded

    wow
    if only they had real dev team that could make actions on the spot or even listen-ask community things can be far better

    i seen many effective methods around that deal with this so eazy and nice but again not going to happend

    there is things that tracks your activity on the map and lets you claim the map with your name on it once you start be activ and hit and once you done no space for afk hold (like 1min maybe or so)
    a bit of work and improve it will fit our needs such as going to portal(frito etc etc )

    this issue its years old and was never ever lookd in to improve so i dont see any change sooon to this
    i can name and show exact how such soulution works and how effective it is


    they can even go far and make all the maps a bit larger and inforce teamplay but still to be nice if they solo half the map if no party at that moment etc etc but its other story

    What point are you trying to make here? You're just blaming a company who had no involvement in any of this because some immature person came in and ksed you.

    Yeah, I hate KSing, but I don't know what Nexon can really do about it. Bigger maps might help, but that would take time and resources. A LOT of time and resources.

    are you suggesting to make all maps the same? isn't that boring as hell? why not just deleted all maps and make a single map with 1000 channel? is that sounds good? Same exp more maps LMAO.
    Making a Vareity of maps is what makes this game not boring.You can always go to any other maps to avoid ksing. but unfortunately everyone fighting over the best. Ksing is part of the game. Something that we always remember about Maplestory. No Ksing = Not Maplestory ;p

    (Wait I'm confused I read and re-read all the posts and didn't see anyone who wanted to make all maps the same.)
    What I've seen people suggesting/hinting at, is that it'd be pretty swell if there was more than one "really great map" in each area. Also, I'm not sure how to respond to the end of your post. How does that defend or justify KS-ing? Because it's "part of the game"? Botters are a part of the game, does that mean it's desirable?

    The ultimate cure to this problem is to play a different game, or play in private instances. Multi-Player Games are played by Multiples of People (that's kind of the point). ~ Yeah. I get it. You want a map all to yourself, all of the time (without any interruption ever); and so does the other 6 million plus people playing MapleStory.
