To whom it may concern,
Hello, My name is Andy and I've been playing Maplestory since it's early years. I was there for the very first Maple Anniversary, and I've been playing on/off every since. This game is a wonderfully addictive way to spend time with friends and every time I come back I find myself more and more drawn in with all the new features an updates. Between nostalgia and just pure excitement and fun times, I will forever hold this game close to my heart.
That being said, in light of recent events, thing's are changing for the worse. I think I speak for many a Mapler when I say that we, as a whole community, are extremely disheartened and upset at the recent behaviors and outcomes of these past few weeks. We have had unstable servers, game breaking lag, countless glitches, day long maintenance's, multiple unscheduled maintenance, hacking, and much more. We have posted out strife on the forums, reached out and encouraged others to do the same. We have tried to come together as a true community to try and work together with you(Nexon) and alleviate these issues. Sadly, our efforts are for naught. After all of these maintenance, the number of glitches and bugs seem to stay the same, hacker's are still going seemingly unpunished, bosses are continuously breaking. The only thing we've seemed to accomplish is an end to this miserable lag. But was it because of community backlash, or simply just an excuse to get us to keep playing, regardless of ALL inconveniences, and keep filling your wallets.
On-top of all this, you have now placed the final straw of these event's on our back, and we are outraged at the sheer lack of empathy with your player base. The addition of adding a 10(Ten) coin limit to the Santa box's, has been a huge slap in the face to us. Through all of this turmoil, our only saving grace with these event's was being able to endlessly farm in peace, and receive the items we wanted. That's all gone to waste. The most sought after prize of this event, the 1200(One Thousand two hundred) V coin ring, is now unobtainable without sheer luck of glitching out the seemingly spaghetti code of these boxes. It goes without saying that this is extremely disheartening to a vast majority of players.
This is the Holiday season, where EVERY SINGLE PERSON should be filled with joy, love, and care. Filled with the spirit of giving and spreading happiness among everyone they meet. We should be excited to log in, and play. We should be excited to be able to get cool and unique items from these events. We shouldn't have to complain and be upset that we have to give up these events because of limits and restrictions. We as a community should ENJOY PLAYING THIS GAME.
I hope reading this sparks a passion within not just Nexon, but within our Maplers as well. We need to come together, as ONE community and make this game, the greatest it can be. And I know that we can achieve these goals TOGETHER.
I thank you all for your time, and I wish you the happiest of holidays.
(I'm attaching a pole this post. Voting yes show's you agree and "sign" this letter with your Mapler stamp of approval. Let's all show Nexon our dedication and love for this game!)
