also communcation nexon -> players -> nexon still poor ( might even say not existent ) we still dont know why they reverted the extra 10ch and so many other things
Suicide kanna was not a healthy meta, it was a glaring problem in Reboot that you had to stay below level 150 to make progress and imitate hacker behavior in doing so. So, arguably, the nerfs to every non-KMS map's droptable is Reboot's fault. Not regular servers'.
Gollux revamp is Nexon's reply specifically to Reboot's woes of not being able to starforce the accessories out of fear that they'd boom and never be replaceable. The huge mark-up in the coin shop reflects that. So, arguably, it's Reboot's fault that Gollux is now more restrictive. Not regular servers'.
We can play the blame game all day and not get anywhere, but AaronHusky is on the right track. Everyone is affected by any change made in the game, for better or for worse. Every change lately, to every server, has been to slow progress in one way or another. Keep players online, keep them on the grind. It's to be expected of a F2P MMO.
Nexon does not give half a crap about the market in regular servers or any temporary "flood" of items (ahem, Marvel, Philo, etc etc), that is not the reason for the coin exchange. It's to keep people online and actively using the content.
The 30 channels were never meant to be permanent, they were added as an effort to mitigate the insane lag in Bera and Reboot during the Black Mage update and in the following months Nexon made significant efforts in banning more bots, and felt confident enough to remove the extra channels. Kishin was a scapegoat. Bots were the real problem, and newsflash, bots exist in Reboot too.
