Hello everyone,

Being one of those people who have like 3 lines on all my equips already, I actually feel pretty bad about this violet cube thing. Although I personally only have one set of equips (luckily only one main) and nothing really to sell/merchant, I guess my loss is just the equips i currently have. Luckily I only have one 40% drop gear too, but looks like all my gear is going to decrease in price...kind of disappointed, anyone else fall into the same category as me? Sympathy for the well funded please who have been spilling thousands into this game to keep it alive while we can all play it.

Edit: Something to add, nexon had their "largest cubes sale" one week prior to this update...I think generally we've all been played by nexon...

Not really

If you feel bad, you can quit and stop spending more money.
But if you quit, all your money has gone to waste whereas if you still play, the money you spent still is worth something (even though it's worth a little less).
Nexon is still going to make money either way...

You knew when you first started heavily funding you were never going to get a ROI. If you invest in anything you are doing it with the thought in mind that what you are investing in can lose value tomorrow, the day after, or years down the road. You should just have more pride/confidence knowing you perfected your items before an easier method came along. For all of you crying about the cube release aren't mentally mature enough to fund in the first place. Crying over a game you willingly pay to play. Good luck in the real world.

Honestly? Ive never put anything resembling major effort into obtaining equipment.

Power creep in MMORPGs is inevitable, it happens constantly...And indeed, violet cubes are just another form of it. It happens. And really, maplestory has had plenty of power creep before. I expect it to have plenty of power creep in the future.

Tis the price you pay, trying to get valuable gear. It isnt going to remain in value as better options come out, to believe otherwise is just short sighted.

Nah. No sympathy for the well funded. They spent money on red/black cubes by their own choice.

Think about people who had godly Empress gear 3 years back, now they have to trash it for CRA gear. Gear comes and goes, you need to be prepare for that.

The people who pay to win are the people who are the the loss the most, they don't know how to make money other than spending real $$ and when new gear come out they either quit, or are forced to do more paying to win.

Just wait until they decide to not release violet cubes again then decide to release the tms equips that raise the cap to 100mil then do many cube sales then a year later reintroduce violet cubes #skemNexinskem

You choose to spend the money. Nexon did not force you to do that. Like others have stated this is a mmorpg and like all mmos the things you invest in can lose value later on. Reverse/timeless equips were godly back then. Then Empress came out and lowered the value of reverse/timeless. Then cra gear came out and lowered the value of Empress gears. As you play this game you should know that something may come in the future to lower the value of your current gear. It's up to you if you want to make that investment or not. If you make that investment it should be out of pride and enjoyment. It should not be made to profit and to stay the best of the game.
