New burning characters?

How is it fair that the people that "Hurt" by the packet hack, get a new burning character AND get to keep the old ones. (The might be just doing it to themselves to get a boost on another account).

And why do the people, like me, that play legitimatly not get another burning character. Wouldn't it be fair to just give everyone another one? Because now it feels like people that tried to cheat their way through leveling get perks over people that played fair.

I don't know if it's just me but I think this is a weird solution. NOT SAYING THAT PEOPLE AFFECTED BY THE HACK WE'RE DOING IT THEMSELVES, but they do get an advantage now which is kind of unfair.

    Everyone does gets another burning character. You'll notice a prompt to create another burning character at the selection screen.

    The real question should be, why did they take away my burning when I've never used any hacks for anything. I now have a 110 non burning, when I did nothing wrong. I've invested too much time to recreate her.....

    Because the hack messed up the burning system and caused you (and many others) to have multiple burning characters.
    It would have taken far too long for Nexon to figure out which burning characters were "real", so they chose to removing burning from all characters on accounts that had multiple burning chars.
    So you'll have to level that char from 110 to 150 the slow way. But on the plus side, you get to burn another character to 150, if you wish.

    i have to delete the same character i deleted to remake as burning, to re burn after this little stunt. 24 hours waiting. they shouldve at least removed the restriction that it has to be a newly created character, so we can burn the same one we had burned.

    If they must have removed all burning from all characters then they should allow you to delete that old burning character with out that 24 hr wait on it. It wouldn't be a huge issue if they just removed that wait time or shorten to something more reasonable than a day. Most burning characters are used for link mules or legion mules anyway. So it would only be fair to allow us to remake it with out any negative affects against us.

    Then why have a burning event at all then? Yes, one could just grind as it's not really that hard to lvl in this game anymore. However, it's just annoying since it's an unnecessary fix that Nexon chose to do bc they decided to half ass and be lazy about it. it would be like if they decided to just roll back the game due to a bug that happened instead of taking time to find a legit fix to the problem. An easy fix would have either be allow to reburn that character in game. Such as give a pop up that says do you want to reburn this character as it has been unburn due to a recent exploit? or just remove that awful 24 hr cool down and allow us to delete that character and remake it from scratch. Most of time these burn characters are just mules anyway. No need for us to waste time grinding the long way when we have our mains to play.
