Now I know what you guys are thinking...
"NERF REWARDS? WHY?! ARE YOU STUPID?! I MAKE MONEY OFF THESE BOSSES."
Yea so do I..
Problem is it's becoming a huge annoyance and affecting my and many others' gameplay due to ksers, map crashers, and even just people crowding the map to get a reward box from an Elite Boss. I would try to train at a Drakes map or even in super deserted maps but people would come and lag the place with their skills and even attempt to ks to make us kill faster.
Despite asking these people to not kill steal our mobs or spam their skills that induce lag, many of these players do not and will not listen 90% of the time.
Previously, elite bosses were only available to those of the same level range including rewards. Even though there were kill stealers trying to hunt the Elite boss, there wasn't half the server coming over and causing the lag. The new method of recieving rewards from Elite bossing have created a huge problem with kill stealing and too much lag with the person who is trying to train their character in peace.
I suggest that we bring back the old method of level range only characters, that are allowed to receive the rewards instead of "whoever hits the elite boss, gets at least 1 reward" method.
I understand people depend on these Elite Bosses to make maplestory mesos out of them but they shouldn't have to ks the player or cause the player to lag by disturbing their gameplay. If the community cannot learn to respect others, then I believe they will have to follow a new set of rules in order to get what they want.
This issue has been becoming a huge issue in my server and it's keeping me and a few of my friends from creating any more characters due to the lack of respect people are giving. I understand "this is the internet, we cannot control people on the internet" but whats the point of playing the game if people scare the players away from the game?
