  • Merge all reg servers

    AKradian wrote: »
    From what I've seen, this request always comes from people who took a long break from the game, missed the World Leap event, and came back recently to find their world emptier and lonelier than they liked.
    The people who have actually been playing continuously all this time, chose to stay in their worlds during the World Leap, and generally prefer the peace and quiet of those worlds.

    What would happen if the worlds were merged?
    The people who returned from hiatus will discover that the game has changed. Even in a more crowded world, nobody ever trains together, does PQs, or even talks in-game. All socializing is done in Discords. So these people will either learn the new way of socializing - which they could have done in "empty" worlds too, we have guilds and the guilds have Discords - or they'll decide the new Maplestory is not fun and quit.
    Meanwhile, the people who've played continuously, and liked being able to easily find burning maps and not have to fight botters for good maps, will suffer the ills of overcrowded servers that they tried so hard to avoid. Maybe they'll continue playing, despite being less happy, and maybe they'll quit too.
    All in all, doesn't sound like a good move.

    I think there's a lot of things incorrect about this post.. You're making a huge generalization that people who want a merge are all people who took a break from the game.. I get that you believe that is your anecdotal experience, but I'm reluctant to believe you are aware of the cadence of gameplay each player complaining of low populated servers has had with maplestory.. And what would that even imply? If someone took a break 5 years ago and missed the transfer event but has been playing for 4 years since, does that negate their opinion? (PS. this is the story of pretty much all maplers plus or minus a few years )

    Also, when the transfer event happened in 2017, most players that chose to stay were the ones already in Bera, as they already had a well populated server and it was banned as a transfer option, and iirc, there was a mass-migration to Windia which gutted Khaini/Broa.. Are you really advocating for Elysiums population size?

    It also isn't all about socialization for the merge. The main difference for non-reboot servers is the economy. having minimal players in 4 different servers= all of them have minimal items for sale.. This isn't just a problem for convenience, but also the perceived 'resale' value of items is diminished, which will encourage players to jump ship to minimize losses (which is already very obvious looking at some of the non-reboot discord servers)..

    Mainly, I agree with the above poster that you can't bring up a transfer event from 5 years ago as a rationale that the 'consistent' players will be punished for this.. someone playing since 2018, or even 2020 doing their dailies is a 'consistent' player. And the complaint about finding burning maps/fighting botters is an argument you've brought up 3-4 years ago. the population of these servers has since decreased so significantly since then that even with a full merge, the difference would be minimal compared to Windia in 2017 for example..

  • option to 'never ask again' for PIC reset

    That goes against the basic premise of account security. You'd never see a bank website give you a "do not ask again" option on an expired password prompt.

    That makes no sense. You are very well capable of changing your PIC yourself by resetting it while logged into your account on the Maplestory website, the same way you reset your password. By your logic, why don't I get a message prompt on Nexon Launcher to change my password everytime as well?

    This would not be voiding the ability to change your pic, it would only allow PIC resets to happen when you opt in to do that, I shouldn't have to opt out of doing that on every log in.

    Even my bank doesn't interrupt my login flow with this request , since you made the comparison..
    It's also not expired, its just 'been awhile since I changed it'.. The PIC still works after declining this pop up, this is not analogous to an expired bank password, as you would not be able to complete a login process with an expired password.

  • option to 'never ask again' for PIC reset

    'You have not changed your PIC in a while. Would you like to now?' - I am asked this every time I want to log in, and eveytime I click no.. Just please include a tick box option for 'Do not ask again'. It interrupts the flow of the login process for every character you want to log into and nearly every player is experiencing this (aside from people who recently changed their pic).

    A good analogy is it's like going to watch a stream and the first click of the play button initiates a pop up instead of playing the video. It still works after one more click, but it's very annoying.

    You seem to be under the impression that bots didn't make use of those as well. Simple enough matter to transfer things to a more "legit-sounding" character name and then sell them like that. I'll give you, though, that it's become far more blatant with the auction house.

    You are mistaken - that's not my impression. What I am suggesting is that if other people want to buy from botters that's there perogative to roll the dice, but I would prefer I have the option of knowing the in game name before I do these expensive transactions (and again, asking for vouches/references).

    Yes, there are ways to get around that. just like there would be in any context of this trade, but it would certainly help mitigate it (I.e 'reputable' sellers, aka the vouch system blackmarket maple runs on, or if you're buying end gear in a lower populated server there's a decent probability you would know the seller).

    Anyway, I didn't make too strong of an assertion in that regard for a reason, the main issue being resolved is negotiating price, a pretty fundamental aspect to every economy (online or not).

    I know it's been brought up before, but it's just pathetic it got swept under the rug.

  • get rid of anonymity in Auction House

    It seems unecessary to not mention the in game name of people selling items in the Auction House. Providing the character name would allow people to make offers on items, and would at least help mitigate the purchasing of illegal items (i.e. don't buy from the ign 'VwVWV356G'). It is the replacement for Free Market stores after all, which had transparency in who you were transacting with.
