Don't get sucked into this violet cube gimmick!
This clearly shows Nexon hasn't change. They're still the same old greedy company they've always been.
This my opinion but; this gives me a feeling the reason Nexon is releasing this is because MapleStory probably won't have that long to last. Who's to say this game wont be shut down in like 3 or 4 years?
It's a fact that Nexon is trying to milk this game for all it's worth before going out with a bang. Notice how it took them YEARS to BARELY solve the pay2win issue this game have been suffering from since 2010.
I don't see this game holding up and lasting for the years to come. This is a 2005 game. It's so outdated compared to today's standards of gaming, especially in mmo's. It's a huge surprise this game lasted 10 years. But I can guarantee it won't last other decade. Especially with MapleStory 2 coming out. There's only so many things Nexon could do to MapleStory until it just becomes, repetitive, bland, boring and simply uninspiring.

Also, if Nexon was really serious about solving the pay2win issue it would of been done long ago. It's not hard nor complex to just make in-game FUN ways to fund yourself. There goes to show you that this game is intentionally pay2win and Nexon plans to keep it that way to some degree until this game gets shut down. The fact that violet cubes are cash-shop only items and cost 2 dollars and 50 cents per try supports my argument. That's just enough for an entire meal at McDonalds for Pete's sake. Nexon has a problem with there being in-game, free and REASONABLY time-consuming ways to get yourself to a level someone could get from spending $500 regularly.

And again guys, keep in mind. THIS IS JUST A GAME. An online mmo at that. Remember, all the money/time you invested in this game could be taken away from you at anytime PERMANENTLY and you'd be left with just air and the memories you had with it.(Whether it be you being falsely perma-banned, hacked, or simply the game shutting down eventually) You won't be refunded nor compensated. Seeing as how i see SOME of you reacting to this game, it gives me the feeling i should make yet other thread explaining this. Some of you guys come off as a heroin addict when it comes to MapleStory. Acting all jittery and such. Nexon is exploiting you guys and you don't even see it.

There feels like there's so many other details I'm missing, but i might just save them for other thread.

Now this isn't a troll or bashing Nexon thread. So for the love of gawd don't give me posts saying otherwise. I made this thread to get you guys to WAKE UP and realize the reality of this situation.
I'm probably going to receive a lot of crap in for making this thread anyway, so bash away. It seems the only people who'd truly understanding what I'm saying are the casuals or people whom already quit but still linger around.

"Pay2Win" and "Nexon making profit" are NOT synonymous.
This is making it LESS pay2win since violet cubes are 20x better deals than red cubes probability wise. Also high %stat items will become cheaper in the market.
And Nexon profitting is probably a good thing for all of us players since that means maplestory is not going to die.

"THIS IS JUST A GAME" Then don't play it. No one forcing you, no one probably wants you too and trust me people stupid their money on stupid stuff all the time. I personally spend hundreds on Esty because why not? I have job and you don't tell me on how to spend my money or live my life.

Most players aren't spending their money other games anyways so why is it okay someone go spends hundreds on steam now with incoming paid mods and dlcs no complains.

People have been saying this for years. Nexon and Maplestory will continue on for years to come. All this thread does is cause unnessesary fear

Saying this right here, im really hoping you are agianst vacations as well, considering those two work the same way.

EDIT: Vacation is just one of many examples where this applies. Temporary happiness is something you will find everywhere, it doesnt mean the memories of that joy wont last out your lifetime.

The pay2win was what honestly kept a lot of players playing the game in my opinion.
The fact they're handing out cubes and constantly 2x exp's and free cash shop scrolls is what's going to kill it.

Just let people spend whatever they want. If that's how they enjoy the game, then so be it.
