Maple, Felt, Told

About to come back to Maple.
I was checking out the website when a friend of mine told me she was coming back, so I felt like fate was telling me to return to Maple.
Anything I need to know about? It's been about 6 months since I quit.

The only notable thing is the monster collection rewards are much better, I usually get 3 occult cubes daily on average (only accepting 2-3 boxes a day). This means getting epic potential is pretty easy now especially with every event selling epic scrolls.

Legion replaces card system, if you care about the card system, you should level your mules to 140 because that's the new S tier.

@Beefly Level all my mules to 140 huh? I guess I've found my purpose.

Game is Pay-to-Win, why come back there? Me? I am never coming-back nor will I play any MMO from Nexon, one of the worst-reputed-MMO-Publisher. Try anything else, anything, just one that doesn't have a bad business-model, actually, most of them have flawed business-model, but not to the extent of this one. You might enjoy those better than this. If it is for the nostalgia, this game is far from being the same as it used to be long before, there is no nostalgia to get here! Game is dead and connection is really bad, almost everyday the game lags and DCs. If the population does not speak for itself, you are better-off not coming back. And I doubt population is any good! Who do you think can tolerate these? Gears are still Pay-to-Win because you have to Enhance and Cube them. If you will keep riding these scam, they will never learn! Company is now doing poorly, I just hope they sink to the level of Aeria Games now, or better yet, they shut-down completely. They have a very poor reputation, no fking way I will support a company like this one.
You are better off with something else if it's not for your friend.

@syrup Even if the population is dead and the game have unfair mechanics, and talk about the business-model that is completely ruining the game. All my friends in that game could not tolerate these and have left that game and they have no intention to come-back. People like Spadebunny and even @RTYU, hell, even 2nga have broke-down and left this game. There is nothing nostalgic about this. And seriously, they replaced the Character-Card-System? I fking died for those Character-Cards! Talk about the unfairness that they keep removing systems. I bet you they even removed the Trait-System that I died-for to MAX-out. How unfair is that!

@syrup Company only cares about cash-grab and how to squeeze this game of milk to the last before this game shuts-down. Why should we even bother?

Quality of gameplay is not here. MMO is a competitive-business. Do you think that they will get Players if the game is like this? Like I said, it's a competition, so why not look beyond this game and find what you will enjoy better?

@EternalMemory HEY RELAX GUY. The Legion System is an improvement to character cards, No longer are you limited to just 9 cards. It's possible to have all 40 character effects + the bonus occupation effects from Synergy Grid. Personally, I'm going to end up with 36 character effects.

@EternalMemory You have a bunch of valid points, so I won't try to disagree, but having said that, I'd like to give an explaination.

I think mainly it's the ability to not care about games, my gears are outdated, I share my meso's with whoever needs it, I've never played to win.
Being godly doesn't do anything for me, I don't have a goal I want to achieve, I don't feel the need to prove myself, there are no people I need to beat.

I think it's the difference between playing by yourself versus playing with a friend.
Since I have someone to share experiences and stories with I don't need a perfect game to have fun.
Just jumping around is fine. half the time we just end up talking anyways.

@EternalMemory Yes, even if the population is dead and systems get changed and etc etc etc. Given the way you talk about games, you of all people should understand the role of passion. People love the hell out of MS because it evokes a certain set of aesthetics that other games do not. Your stories are mildly entertaining because you're so impassioned. But honestly, the negative portion of posts, where you're being racist or using such foul language towards people who play - games - is becoming tiresome. It honestly sounds like you need to take a break. Take up chess or something. Relax. Please,

@syrup Yes, you also made some valid-points. If his friends are here and he just want a place to hang-out(with his friends. since this game is dead), this can do, and so does any game. You can have passion for anything, no matter what it is, I wouldn't disagree with that. But I also made my points, which are valid as well, and I will state it again, and all of us have agreed.; "This is not a game where you wanna take it to progress. For non-P2W, this is a game to hang-out. The point of the game is Cap-Damage and solo-ing Bosses the fastest as possible. This is not possible for non-P2W. If you don't care about all of that, and all of you stated you do not, so I know where you are coming from. then you can play this game however you want."

What I stated are facts. It can be of 2 state, negative or positive. If it's negative, why get offended when it's the truth?

Kerning Square thing came back as Kerning Tower, but it's not really that good in my opinion.
Omega Sector is returning soon, or is it already available? I don't know.
Character cards got replaced by Legion System.
I read about this new area place thing called Eluna which can help with leveling, but we won't get that until a month later.
Ravana, the boss at Golden Temple, now only requires 1 party member. Do people even kill this thing?
The second wave of new Vth job skills and a new area for Arcane River thing in August.
There's probably a lot more stuff I forgot about.
Oh yeah, Jett has 0 cooldown Starfall (their ultimate).
