First, i'm going to point to the fact that i'm not defending nexon, so much as the process of troubleshooting issues, as I stated in my later post. If you don't do it, you just won't get it. Theres no nicer way to say it than that. Plus, the easiest card I didn't want to pull but you seem to be missing it, so I will. It's a free game. Cut. Dry. A free game that owes you and everyone else absolutely nothing. Do we like hearing that? No. But that's the way it is. Every single player could never pay a cent again, and the game would run, until it dies (because that's the nature of these things) but you'd never pay a cent.Honestly you people clearly have no concept of what exactly goes into releasing something like this. Maplestory targeted children with it's style so there is bound to be some brats out there but good lord. Many of the remaining players (and players bashing maintenance) really need to grow up. You can check, double check, and triple check every variable, and something can still go wrong. Then you have to set about finding the one random thing that just so happens to be not functioning correctly.Well your "2 cents" needs some reassessment because the maintenances they preform are constantly going overtime and it's not just with a major maintenance like this, the routine sever checks get extended. This is an on going issue and to be honest, I think Nexon has no concept what goes into releasing a major patch like this, because they obviously aren't planning their updates when like I said, a routine server check gets extended. And until people like you stop trying to justify this kind of stuff and defending them, because this is ridiculous for a company to be this sloppy and this will continue to happen, because every time someone tries to bring up issues they get mobbed by 'nexon fangirls' and the issues aren't taken seriously. From what I heard from a former Nexon Employee, you get very limited training on the job and they are severely understaffed and it definitely shows. And I know people hate it when other people compare two companies, but Blizzard has maintenance during the day like Nexon, and from what I heard Blizzard RARELY has to extend their maintenance. Extending the maintenance almost every single time you have one is not something to excuse.
People here have no concept of what goes into a troubleshooting process and cry because they can't play the game. If the initial maintenance had gone this long, the frustration would be warranted. But it wasn't. The game came up, something was wrong, and now they have to fix it. Such is life.
Just my 2 cents.
Never expected this thread to get so long, just checked it.Honestly you people clearly have no concept of what exactly goes into releasing something like this.Then explain to us what it takes to release something like that.
I'm certain you're not one of those reddit users who act smart but in fact dont know anything.
Also, i'd like to ask your profession/job and age.
