I understand all that, and the purpose seems to be clear. But still, the description in the event page info is kinda misleading. It makes things appear as if you are supposed to receive a new Burninator somewhere, and be able to use it along with the Mega burning event.They said that so we could see that, even if we have a burning character from the Burninator item that was given some days ago, through the Ark micro-site event, we could participate anyways in the Mega Burning Character event that's going on now. There was a lot of doubts whether or not you could get the second burninator they were going to give on Sunday while the first one still was active, if we could participate in the Mega Burning Character Event that started now while having the other one still active and stuff like that, so I guess they wanted to make sure you COULD use both things. I don't think they meant you would be able to get another Burninator item.
So, here's like it is:
1. At the beginning of June, the reward for sharing the Ark micro-site first page was an item called Burninator that allowed you to use it on 1 existing character and make it burn from level 10 to 149.
2. That Burninator's duration was extended due to issues with it. So, if you used it, the character still counts as "burning" until the end of June, more or less.
3. They were planning on giving out a 2nd Burninator item last Sunday, as part of the Sunny Sunday prizes, but since the 1st Burninator is still active in the accounts that got it and used it, they decided to not give out that 2nd item for the time being, so it wouldn't conflict with the one that was already at work and it wouldn't expire either.
4. Then this Ark Update came and, with it, came the Mega Burning Character event, which allows you to make one newly created character "burn". This only can be done from the character creation screen and doesn't apply to already existing characters. Also, it doesn't conflict with the already "burning character" that you may have in your account if you received and used the 1st Burninator item.
I don't think they have considered to give out the 2nd Burninator item yet and, instead, they made this other event, which allows you to burn a new character anyways.
I was hoping someone like Neospector, who is apparently a pseudo-spokesperson for Nexon, would be able to give a less vague explanation to this issue. Instead, I was given a response that makes no sense, and doesn't explain why the event page clearly states you can use a Burninator, without explaining where you can get one or which Burninator the reference is to.
Also, I haven't heard it anywhere officially announced on the website that the second Burninator was cancelled. Unless you've got a link to provide.
The Mega Character Burninator perk has been removed from the Sunny Sunday event on June 17 to avoid overlapping with the upcoming Mega Burning events. We will be moving this Sunny Sunday event perk to a future Sunny Sunday event to space out the Mega Burning events. This will avoid issues where players are not able to use the Mega Character Burninator due to having too many active Mega Burning events.
AS AN ARTIST IM PISSED OFF BY THAT:
THIS Eligibility: The Promotion is open only to: (a) legal residents of: (i) the United States of America (including all territories and possessions thereof); Canada (excluding Quebec);
" The Promotion is open only to current registered users of nexon.net (registration is free)
and players of MapleStory (“Game”) (playing MapleStory is also free) who: (a) are at least thirteen (13) years of age as of the start of the Promotion Period (defined below); "
ARE SERIOUSLY OPPOSE EACH OTHER.
FIRST U SAID THAT EVERY MAPLE PLAYER IN NEXON CAN ARTICIPATE AND THAN U SAY ONLY AMERICA AND CANDA// t_t
THIS CONTEST SHOULD BE FOR EVERY PLAYER OF GMS AND NOT ONLY AMERICA & CANADA... I GET THAT THE SHIPPED PRIZE IS SOMETHING ELSE BUT U CAN OFFER ANOTHER PRIZE FOR NON AMERICAN- CANADA CITIZEN.
ITS REALLY NOT FAIR. ITS MEANS THAT NEXON/MAPLE CARE NOTHING ABOUT GLOBAL PLAYERS WHO I THINK IS LARGER UN NUMBERS THAN AMERICA-CANADA PLAYERS.
I HAD SUCH A COOL DEAIGN IN MY HEAD.. GOOD THING THAT I HAVENT STARTED TO WORK IT CUZ IT WOULD BE A WASTE OF TIME <_<</blockquote>
First of all, turn your caps lock off you child.
Second, you got the order of edits wrong. Yes, initially the contest was slated for residents of the US and Canada (excluding Quebec). They have since changed the rules to include all regions by removing a physical prize which, as a US resident I am bummed about, but am more glad that I get to see the talents of others.
Third, if you took the time to read the official rules at all found here then you would see absolutely NO mention of it being region locked at all.
Lastly, even if you couldn't win you could still draw and share an idea. People like you are toxic and are the source of misinformation being spread on online forums.
Have a nice day, and hopefully you'll submit your idea now.
