The system is supposed to be a "Thank you" for players who help keep the game running, and it's pretty irritating that past patronage apparently means diddly-squat. Why aren't you counting the past 3 months? If you can set an arbitrary date (March 1st) then you can set an arbitrary date 3 months in the past (December 1st).
"Fresh start" doesn't even really make sense, and it makes even less sense as a "Thank you"
I didn't mean for my statement to come out as aggressive. It was more of a "shoulder shrug" type of deal. Yes, even I want 2x but sometimes we cant get what we want. They put up the servers because it was time to release, but it is hard to estimate how many players will actually play when there is no "computer count" when you are not on maple.
To be fair, SEA and KMS had this exact same problem when they did their V updates. I'm frustrated too about the compensation because my schedule prevents me from using most of it. I appreciate the thought, but I'd rather play than have 2x at a time when I can't. I was lucky I could come home early today.
