I feel like it's worth mentioning that Reboot was never officially the "f2p" server. It only got that branding because of the cubes for meso plus no trading aspects.
All due respect I don't really think that's worth mentioning.. Reboot is the 'f2p' server because of the obvious stark contrast in spending requirements to be competitive relative to non-reboot servers. Imagine this - Nexon still calls Maplestory 'Free to Play!'.. More like 'free to get carried through the game by people spending $10,000 to be sorta competitive'.
I would rather reference the consumer spending behavior from the players than what Nexon 'officially' labels as free or not.. Better to trust your experience and observations over a company's PR team.
Yeah? Well it was 2019, 2018 2017 and probably 2016 at some point. Why's it matter?
This remains the single worst reasoning for doing something that has ever been. So what if it's 2020? "It's <current year>" has absolutely no meaning or merit to it. It's a hand-wave, a cop-out. It shows that you can't come up with a single compelling argument in favor of a change being made.
And before anyone decides to open their mouths about it, I have no issue with same-sex marriage. I take issue with the argument of "it's <current year> already, just do it". It's devoid of any substance or merit, it's low-effort. If you really care about something, put up an actual argument instead of pointing at the calendar.
Actually the year in which an argument is being made can be an significant component to said arguments validity. A year provides context for the social setting/values of that time - If you continued down your line of condescending thinking, you would get to a year after 2016 in which the issue of providing gay representation in a video game wasn't something being vocalized by a large group, either because of social pressure or lack of open mindedness. So you can see how stating 'because it's <current year>' after your 'feedback' can very well explain the discrepancy between widespread social values and how a company is reflecting those values. If you don't understand the correlation made you are not climatized to western culture.
- also, 'this remains the single worst reasoning for doing something that has ever been'... Why are you discrediting all of your decently valid pessimistic feedback with this unsubstantiated statement?
title says it all. With the mesos rate so inflated it essentially costs 3-4knx (i.e. $3-4usd) per attempt after 15 stars @ a 30% success rate. Which means essentially, a lot less people are making 20+ star equips. The mesos rate has gone up significantly since the pricing for this was determined, and at this price point it just isn't realistic.
A ) Lower the price per attempt
B ) significantly increase the success rate for star enhancing in general.
nah, nx perms have already plummeted in price and buying scissors for most items would be like 50-100% of the meso cost of the perm. this would also really put a huge dent in the price of super rare perms
nx should be cash shop shareable across all classes tho, nexon putting this restriction is my only reason for not really playing any class out side of my mains class group
god no... karma needs to not even be a thing. this is a step in wrong direction.
tradeable until equipped is fine. na you prob just broke af rn and want to liberate some meso from your NX stash lol.
A ) This game is already super expensive for the smallest things. Why would tanking the price of nx items that cost excessive amounts (i.e. 5b = 100 usd right now) be a reason to not have this item? wouldn't it make nx items more accessible? There are some items so rare they haven't been in cycle for 6+ years, and with the smaller population of this game, that means they'll virtually never be on the market again - what a wasted opportunity considering how huge the nx suggestion thread is.
B ) I agree karma scissors shouldn't be a thing, but I know there is no way Nexon would make equipped nx tradeable for free, so i'm being realistic. - There is an entire pinned thread of people begging (requesting) for perm NX to be put back into cycle, this would alleviate most of their requests by putting old items back into the market..
And I wouldn't be selling my nx perms, I would be buying some oldies, as that was my incentive to make this thread- I don't have a need to sell my goods for mesos.. but with that being said you bring up a good point, I'm sure there are A LOT of broke players right now that could benefit from this situation. Again - why is this a bad thing?
