I made a thread a while back about Nexon removing Protection Scrolls and White Scrolls from the game, see thread here www.basilmarket.com/forum/2413768.

Now read this from the official Maplestory website. Secure your equipment with Shielding Wards and Shield Scrolls that are up to 50% off! A Shielding Ward used on a piece of equipment will protect it from being destroyed by scrolls, while a Shield Scroll will protect it from having its available upgrade count reduced by a failed scroll. Check it out!

So it was as I thought in my last thread. Nexon didn't remove these items for the better of the game but they removed them just to make a few bucks.

I don't know why Nexon had to screw over so many people removing these items, their net income was up 60% year to year. Found here I tired to put the link but basil wouldn't allow me to post that type of URL. If you are wondering where I got this info go to your facebook and look at Maplestory's recent post

People argued that Nexon removed them because they were slowly removing all items, but they have been saying that since September 2011 and all the duped SCG, VSS, 10atks, 15atks, Godlies, Empress, Atk Scrolls, and etc. have been around much longer than the duped Protects and WS AND since the easy way of duping is patched the scrolls would of eventually ran out in the economy while these duped equips will continue to stay.

Alright I'm done ranting. I have not played in three weeks now and I don't really care about this anymore. I just think Nexon needs to spot being selfish and do acts that better the game. Thanks guys

Edit: For everyone telling me Nexon is a business and need to make money then please read the whole thread. Nexon is making more money now than they ever had, check their recent facebook post for proof, the link was not accepted by basil policy. And you need to know I am all for deleting duped items, Nexon just did it in the wrong way, see my old thread that I posted up top for more details.

People like you piss me off.

"Nexon is trying to take measures against hackers," let's all QQ.
"Nexon is having a **sale** so you can try to play legitimately," let's all QQ still.

Nexon is a company. THEY WANT MONEY, YES. This is not news. You go run a business.

What tot said, I can guarantee thi sale would ahve been happening wether or not they removed the scrolls. I'm glad they removed them.[/quote]

I doubt it. Nexon removed them from the game and then waited a few week so people started to notice and now they are having the most convenient sell. Sorry this wasn't happening if protects were still in game.

@TheTot What you say really makes no sense. Removing three items from the game is not taking action against hackers. This was a selfish act that wasn't necessary. If you read my post you would know that Nexon's net income was up 60% last year so they are making more than enough money.

Yeah but when Nexon deletes protections and innocents and the whole bunch only to make sales of their own with NX cash, then yes the TS has more than enough right to complain. They are essentially exploiting their customers.

The scrolls were duplicated. Hacked. There were NOT intended to be that many scrolls in this game when the developers tried to add them. In fact, this is just proof to them that we can't have items like that.

Developers: "Let's be nice and try to add a few in-game items that have NX-like effects so that it's another reason people don't have to buy money."
MS Community: "Let's duplicate these things to all hell and exploit them!"

It may not be fair to all of us, no. It certainly isn't. But they ruined it for all of us.

@simplyjordanv2 (above), you're a cynic and looking at the entire situation backwards. Exploiting customers would be if they took those actions against duplicated items, then **marked up** their cash shop items. THEY'RE HAVING A **SALE**. They're LOSING potential money.

They're supposed to get money from the game, so what do you expect.[/quote]

If you read the thread your argument is invalid. I clearly added in that Nexon made over 60% of their net profit last year just for people like you who say "Nexon needs to make money."

@HiImCyrus I quit Maplestory. Maplestory=/=Basil, and I made this thread because people need to know about the corruption. People think Nexon is doing it for the good but their not going that at all. I am not offensive, you just think your right when it's obvious what Nexon did.

So thieves were stealing profits from Nexon, and they took action. This surprises you? Why?

Wow, shocking. Someone call CNN and let them know that a company wanted to protect it's intellectual property against online thieves!

They need to **keep** making money. Again, they are a business. You seem to lack a basic understanding of exactly what the goals of a business are.
