The truth behind the Mts removal

General MapleStory Forum Talk about MapleStory in general

After seeing this thread, and a few others, I decided I would come all the way back here from Mabinogi, and make a thread to clear up some confusion.
I realize not all of you are for keeping the MTS. I will be addressing those people specifically in this thread.

The reason they're removing the MTS is not because of people using it (dupers can just use other methods of selling crap, amirite?). The reason they are removing it is because it was damaging players in other games. Yes, you heard right. Hackers had been finding ways to get into the accounts of players from other Nexon games, and would use the MTS to steal their NX. This has been a significant issue for a while now, and our pleas for Nexon to do something have [i]finally[/i] gotten their attention.

[i]Here's a novel idea:[/i] Nexon is a business. They (usually) don't do something unless they believe there is a good reason to do it. They don't just up and decide to screw everyone over for the giggles. I don't know why Nexon didn't give specific reasons for why they're removing it. My guess is because they're trying to protect some kind of image they think they have. Regardless, now you know.

Still whining about the MTS removal? Two things. First, you're incredibly selfish. Second, it's not even planned to be permanently removed. That's right. If you had actually read the notice instead of immediately raging when they said it was being removed, you would have actually noticed this.

Still complaining, even now? Shut up and do something better with your time, then. The temporary removal of the MTS is [i]"for" the good of many[/i].

Sincerely,
Mabinogi Alexina's Master of Magic, Azareel

Edit: For those questioning whether this has any grounds, I quote to you Nexon's post:
"In our continuing efforts to protect the security of our players and integrity of the game economy, we had to remove these systems due to the malicious activity on the part of some users, which was unfortunately affecting the service as a whole in a very negative way. We shall be working on improving these systems, and hope to return them to the game at a later point in time."

And you know this because you have information made privy to you that is not available to anyone else? Are you Nexon's confidant? Or as 'Master of Magic' do your mystical abilities allow you to see into the motives of others?

Yea...... No. Your theory is just as good as anybody's. As for 'the good of many' - that's bureaucratic garbage. Nexon doesn't act for the utilitarian 'good', if anything, experience tells us that their course of action befits their [i]own[/i] agenda, not their customers' needs.

Thank you for clearing that up, I though it was to help stop the spread of duped items. No world transfers and no MTS to bring them to different worlds.

Sorry, try again. I know this because it actually happens. Friends and guildies of mine, even people I know just from the general communities, were victimized by this. It was an issue people had to be constantly concerned about. It's by no means a [i]theory[/i], and the fact that you like to pretend it is makes me sick.
As for the "good of many" bit, that was in response to the thread I linked to.

Next time, think about what you're saying.

I think that Nexon should have implemented a PIC system for each person's Nexon account as a whole, and not specifically for MapleStory. That would prevent hackers from stealing NX from players of other games. This, along with an MTS system limited to intra-world trading and removal of world transfers might have been a better solution for all?

as privaron said: "[i]where's the proof?[/i][/quote]

Well, I don't know, maybe the rejoicing of players from the other Nexon games?
It's not like it's out of your power to go check its validity out for yourself instead of just pretending to be smart. [i]It's not even like this is impossible to happen, as it's exactly what the MTS is designed to do: moving NX between accounts.[/i]
I'm just informing you guys about the primary reason behind this, and why it's not going to change because of complaining.
