Ya, because they're such a huge aberration amid the mentality of the architecture teams of Maplestory M Mesos (pay2win fiesta) vs GMS2 (rng fiesta), it feels like there's something amiss with the game.
The bold itself is fun and has abundant ideas, but ultimately it's been a bouldered alley adapting a Pay2win bold fabricated to accumulate the a lot of committed whales as their amateur abject to something that casual/hardcore MMO admirers or MS1 players can enjoy.
Personally, I anticipate if they accumulate forth the aisle they are now, the bold will boring get it's own character and become added "complete", but that will yield time, accomplishment and ultimately a lot of accusatory from the community.
Because the bold was originally advised to by a big banknote grab, but Nexon America approved to change the arrangement from that design. It would be a lot worse if it weren't for them. Still though, there are a few things I accede with you on but some I disagree.
Like you, if I abstruse about MS2, I hit the roof. Five years afterwards I abstruse it was assuredly accepting appear globally and I was devastated I absent the bankrupt betas (actually still am sad about that), but I acquire played every day aback Mushking Pre-Season. I played Maple M Mesos buy from its aboriginal canicule and enjoyed it immensely. I adulation and adore MS2---no affairs to abdicate anytime soon---but it needs above adjustments.
I am hopeful the devs abruptness us this advancing year and apparatus some fixes based on gamer feedback.
