Campaign for New Content
Ok, I’ve been asked by a few people to put this together:
1) We will be holding a protest on Sunday 15th Feb @ 9:15pm (GMT+1) at the Mushroom Shrine on EU1. This will be fraps'ed and sent to nexon.
2) Between myself and felix we have composed a message that we want everybody to send to nexon on Saturday 14th Feb, feel free to make whatever changes you would like to letter, however a consistent voice is more likely to get through to them. The Letter:
Open Letter To Nexon Regarding Europe MapleStory (EMS)
We write this, not because we want to hurt EMS, but because we love it and have been pushed too far.
As a community we have repeatedly been told to not compare Global MapleStory (GMS) content, to that of EMS, as GMS has been in existence for longer. With the latest patch notice for Hong Kong MapleStory (HKMS) we can no longer remain silent on this issue.
Even though HKMS has less overall players, and less high level players (on the 19th January HKMS had 559 players level 100 and above, EMS had 971) they have content which is far in excess of that which is available on EMS. We have been told we will not receive the 4th job advancement, because there are too few people in EMS to take advantage of it; however 189 level 120+ players appears to be the requirement for HKMS to have 4th job.
We have not received ANY maps that are good for higher level characters. All we have received are 2 bosses; Papulatus and Zakum, which can be defeated within 1minute and 20minutes respectively. There has not been a single release where people over level 100 can improve their training and/or their training speed.
Trying to communicate with Nexon has become almost impossible. Outside of the game Emails Of Inquiry (EOI) have remained unanswered for months, and the responses we do receive rarely make sense. Inside of the game, Game Masters (GM’s) are almost never present during the times European players play, and in the very unlikely event that you manage to talk to one, there is often difficulty communicating with them
Game Masters (GM’s) have consistently lied and misled us regarding the future content of EMS (we have numerous screenshots of this).
In summary we are requesting two things:
1. The same content as HKMS which has been around for less time than EMS
2. An open and honest dialog with Nexon staff regarding the progression and development of EMS
As a community we have progressively been squeezed onto fewer and fewer maps as we progress through the game. We feel entirely neglected by Nexon; we have no open dialog with anyone inside Nexon. There are currently just over 1000 ranked level 100 or above players, whilst this is not a huge proportion over the other 500,000 characters created in EMS, we account for large proportion of the income Nexon receives from EMS.
People within this community have already started to quit EMS because of the complete disregard Nexon has shown us. If this attitude is to continue, we appear to have no recourse but to encourage others to stop playing and stop paying.
