Is anyone happy with how much nexon has changed?

I love the complaining that everyone does here, but seriously do you guys realize what it used to be like?

In the past pets were anywhere from 4.9k NX to 12k nx, and thats all they came with, no item loot or anything. If you wanted item pick up? 2.4k, mesos? 2.4k as well. HP and MP pots? 2.5k each.
Now all pets are 4.9, come with item/meso looting for free, and HP/MP pots are 1k each.

In the past perm NX was totally unheard of, there we cosmetics worth 5k for 90 days.
Now for only 3.4k you can get TRADEABLE, PERMANENTnx items.

Just small examples, there are a ton more ways nexon has made maple a much less 'pay to win' game. I love what they've done and hope they continue down this path.

This isn't going to change complaining, but just be thankful you aren't wasting as much as you used too.

You could also argue that the introduction of the % system, and the cubing system is what made the game pay 2 win-ish to begin with.
So to go and say that they "kind of" made things better after screwing things up entirely isn't really that great reconciliation.

That's like stabbing someone in the gut, but then saying it's ok because you gave them a band-aid.

Gachapon and to lesser extents iTCG and MTS also had a critical role in pushing the game towards p2w.

I think nexon does a good job balancing P2W and F2P i think the ability to make meso from scratch i a lot easier to get strong in the game without paying there is just a few things that bug me

When servers have issues like these nexon doesnt do enough, they dont fix it fast enough and they dont compensate even a little bit for lost time
Make the survey easier to get some NX credit on do just so people can get a store permit, no luxurys just a store permit people NEED a permit to start making meso

Other than that nexon is a company that hosts F2P game they need to make money some how, yes cubes cost a lot but we get reward points so we can cube a little bit, bosses drop cubes there is only so much they can give F2P people before making the P2W componant on par with F2P so you cant hate on them for selling cubes and pets for that much.

You don't need to buy nx anymore you can make cubes, and buy nx items without even wasteing a doller.[/quote]
True, but it takes foreverrrrr compared to just buying NX. Plus you need NX for a shop to make mesos.

If you think nexon have done enough to not be a terrible company, I suggest you try one of the big MMOs like wow or GW2 and see how the customer service is there.

Additionally the pay to win is still extremely strong here. Double quest/monster exp, drop, cubes (though granted they are very rare drops too) scissors, hammers, item guards... there's a ton more they can do before they steer MS away from pay to win.

good changes ? how about from no cubes to 2,2k per black cube?
how about white scrolls removed and now ... shield scrolls ? nx only? dont mention slates
taking out MTS , how is that good?
and how they eff'ed azwan up so yuo have to buy those circulators now ?

i always disliked nexon and i dont think they have made any improvement at all
not in their service , not in fixing the p2w , not in nothing
