My Thoughts on Step Up Event

Well, Step up is quite an event...but there are a few things Id like to note.
Step Up VS V Tracker
- These two events are similar in a variety of ways. (and if I might add...their goals/quests)
1. Why isn't step up account wide? You can only get the title once per account, right? Why not allow people to do stuff as long as their character meets level requirement for that step...(I.e. my Cadena does step up to say....the level 120 step, then my illium does the 120 step, and I keep going on the cadena to 205 step)
2. 999 Mobs? Why nexon...just why. Star Force mobs and burning mobs (especially with the maintenance lately) aren't the easiest things to go after, so why not put a little bit better of a goal like 300 mobs? It seems more fitting for a newbie (as the step up event is implied to help new players)
3. Kritias Invasion, the V tracker just made us do the prequests, why add on invasion...especially with the bad timing it tends to have on some players schedules?

While i understand trying to get players to try out a variety of content, some of it seems unnecessary to tack on (Dojo...I'm looking at you.)
if this event comes back in the future, Id suggest going more to the V Tracker or Pink bean tracker type of quest style. it's not as heavy a burden on players and still gives a lot of variety in content you experience.

-hope you like my feedback and suggestion.

    i would honestly doubt that the step up was meant for newbies. The title you get upon completion says it all. ”Maple specialist” title is, by my own opinion, definetly, completly, in no way at all, meant to be for newbies. i honestly thought this was for veterans, and i still do. i eoudnt make sense to have such an event for newbies, its way too difficult. you would lose your sanity

    I'm 106, been playing since beta, and I am stuck on the netts pyramid one, because literally there is no one to play with, let alone three other people.

    so the event officially is useless past this point.

    It would have been better if we didn't have to do the requirements in order.

    Aside from that the only thing that has annoyed me is how we got something that takes between 4 and infinite days (collect 10 ra soul shards and make a soul) in place of a kms requirement that took a second (reset additional options once).
