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.
You don't have to spend money to be "competitive" with other players on reg servers. I can solo Lotus on my Hoyoung and most of my progression on him came from just playing the game. I know F2P players at Willcid level too. There's no actual competition between players either. This is a silly mindset tbh. Play the game at your own pace.
This game is most definitely "free to play" too. Ironically, I'm pretty sure the "free to get carried" line applies to reboot more because of the lack of trading between players. Lotta people asking for carries on reboot.
Damn i like the feedback, really well written and touching crucial points. If anything to add would be the prices of gollux items, they are way too high in my opinion, it takes way too long to get 750 coins, i understand its end game, but theres other end game content that can be achieved/obtained faster, so why make gollux items so hard to obtain?
IDK, a month for a guaranteed piece vs 1 year+ if you're lucky for an Arcane drop in Reboot, Gollux seems pretty generous especially when people party up for coin leeching.
If anything, Hell mode Gollux should have all the drops instead of just locked down on Earrings and Belt
