Pb is a test to separate the good players from the bad
A lot of funded or experienced players are annoyed with nexon for making this event next to unbearable and not fun with this stupid book to complete. Yet on the other hand a lot of players who aren't funded are happy that everyone is on the same playing field no matter how much money you've spent or how long you've been playing (aside from link skills) you have to rough it out. Remember guys look at it from this point of view. If you are experienced/funded player who already been through the trials of hell of getting to where you are now, this is only a reminder of what it use to be and if you can get pink bean to level 200 or whatever reward you want this only proves again that you deserve to be where are and being unfunded who can't even access your own storage. For the unfunded players who complain about this game is pay2win going on basil and have a blast at us "pay2win players" they probably can't even get pink bean to level 200 heck probably won't get him pass level 150 much less. Those players will always be noobs who will complain no matter what and this is the true test to see when everyone is on the same playing field that they don't have what it takes to reach that level. So pro/funded/experienced players don't take in the salt too much and laugh when you reach level 150 and those guys who claim this game is pay2win still can't even reach high level status. We're all the same now, and you have nothing to say anymore when that pay2win player reaches level 200 while you're still at level 70.
At the end of the day again like I said over and over, those who make it far in maple are the ones who try and the ones who don't. Just like life.
