Thus the duping argument is irrelevant in this discussion, it’s a matter for nexon’s security team to tackle not their game designers. You also haven’t addressed the point about how duping can regulate the power gap, since you worry so much about it in your first argument. You can’t have your cake and eat it.
But lets assume that doesn’t happen. What difference does it make if a hacker can dupe 50 A rank nebs instead of 10 S rank nebs and thus yield the same profit? None at all, they’ll keep matching the same yield even if the S ranks weren’t here because duping has no limits. And were not even sure if they’ll cost as much if we’re just speculating about demand and supply.
Stop spouting off nonsense. Nebs were released far more than 2-3 years ago and yet we still haven’t seen S nebs introduced despite a 50x increase to the damage cap in Unleashed, back in 2013. Furthermore, Nexon has massively slowed down the amount of OP items entering the game. We got Tyrant gloves back in RED, and no other superior equipment in the past 2 years. NexonNA has refused to allow MEEs to enter the game, as well as kept the 15 star cap on equipment for enhancements. On top of that, they have also steadfastly refused to introduce AO, even despite many users wanting it to come to the game.
Nexon is not following the pattern that you claim they are. There is no reason for S nebs to ever enter the game, stop pushing it.Firstly S rank nebs aren’t comparable in power to MapleStory Mesos MEEs. Secondly Nexon korea immediately acknowledged that MEEs were a mistake, that’s why they changed it to time limited scrolls and removed the event quest following the patch. This is probably what nexon thought when they designed those S nebs at the time, that they were too OP. But it’s different when nexon (in korea) releases something previously unknown to players in a short amount of time before the test servers were closed and releasing something that’s already known for years and should be given be the green light in contemporary maple.
