    Keep in mind people are replying to DarkPassenger too. I bring this up because you've replied to people as if they are solely talking to you, which isn't the case.

    This post of mine is not an argument, so please don't take it as one. I'm just bringing this up.
  • Remove the "gender" attribute from the game

    Guys, stop with the politics. This has absolutely nothing to do with them and would not be making a statement or whatever if they went through with this.
    Also, suggestions are suggestions. Even if to you it doesn't seem like they should be putting effort into implementing it and putting the effort elsewhere, people are still allowed to suggest it and hope they do take it into account.
  • Even cosmetics are P2W

    It's not pay to win. Pay to win implies you gain an advantage, cosmetics do not give you an advantage unless they have stats on them.

    Don't get me wrong, I still think it's stupid most of the good stuff is hidden behind an RNG cash wall, but I wouldn't say it's pay to win.

    I cannot agree at all.

    Gender is not just a "social norm" or "politics", it's something scientifically unchangeable. To suggest otherwise WOULD be political, and is blatantly absurd. We have more than enough evidence that gender changes the way you think, the way you act, the way your body is, the choices you make... I could go on and on.

    The entire purpose of MapleStory is not to drown yourself in as much customizability as possible. The very nature of games is not to make a hiding place from the real world so you never have to go there anymore. Gender is something you will have to live with. Dropping it from the game just for the purpose of being "socially acceptable" would kill Nexon. We've already seen it happen to Target - why would Nexon go there? Corporations who simply go along with cultural norms aren't praised - they're scoffed at. No one applauds companies who accepted slave trade, accepted Nazism, taught "duck and cover" during the Cold War, or praised the Vietnam War just because they were socially acceptable at the time.

    Nexon has a chance to stand out from the rest of the corporations who just cater to whatever society thinks is right at the time. Don't judge them negatively just because of where they stand. You may find that they were right all along.

    But what does gender contribute to in MapleStory? Are female characters really that different from male characters when you can do everything they can do, with the singular exception of marrying another female character?

    All the characters look the same anyway and they usually get eyes and hairs that are exactly the same to one another (Bright eyes for male and females only changes very slightly, and metrosexual is the caspia hairstyle for men) and with the added bonus of april fools day allow females to get male styles and vice versa, nothing would change and Nexon would not be making a statement by removing the gender attribute for the game. I mean, men can already wear dresses in this game. Is that a statement?

    It'd actually make their job easier, they wouldn't need to worry about male or female counterparts to items anymore.

    This suggestion isn't what you think it is, it's obviously a neutral viewpoint saying "gender blocking in MapleStory is pointless and only makes things annoying" and in that sense, I agree. What's the point of blocking a guy from wearing one dress when he can wear a different one?

    Also the Target situation is a whole different story from what we're asking for here...
  • Marvel Sale ??

    While your definition is not incorrect, this is another definition for sale:
    So it isn't wrong to say "sale price"
