When the Sizzling Santa event was first released with the Reboot patch many people, like me, had an issue with completing certain quests that were a part of the event. Not everyone was affected, but a good number of people could not complete the quests given by the elves and/or reindeer. The quests were bugged and simply could not be completed.
This bug would not be fixed for me until the Kinesis patch 4 days ago, over 2 weeks after the release of the event. I have no idea if the Kinesis patch fixed these issues for everyone or not, but it was fixed for me at least. I was finally able to progress through the event.
Unfortunately the event only lasts for the month until the 30th. After completing all of the tedious and difficult tasks of collecting items from boss monsters and collecting 900 items for a single NPC quest I finally unlocked the ability to do the Santa Missions required for the event medal rewards. However this came with another problem. As of today, the 19th, there are 11 days left before the event is over. The Santa Missions are time-gated and you can only complete 3 a day. As 30 missions are required for the Master Santa medal, this means it takes a minimum of 11 days to obtain the medal after unlocking the Santa Missions. Why 11? 3 Santa Missions for 10 days straight and an extra day because the quest given to you after 30 Santa Missions, which is required for the Master Santa Medal, requires you to collect items within the Santa Missions themselves. Assuming it's even possible to collect all of the MapleStory 2 items required in a single day of 3 missions, this all totals to a minimum of 11 days required for the final reward.
In my opinion this is infuriating. I have to frantically complete these dailies every single day for the next 11 days with no room for error whatsoever for the faint hope of obtaining the final reward that I'm honestly not even sure I'm able to obtain at this point because I'm working off assumptions. All because of a bug that I had no control over and took over two weeks to fix. This is incredibly unfair.
So I'm asking for an extension of the event. Please extend the event by at least an extra week for the people affected by this bug that took so long to fix.
