For those that acquired or purchased have a 10 days head start Bravo.

But I will say this sucks really bad in many levels you can reach max level very quickly and u can do it in multiple alts which is going to leave the rest in the trail dust.

Then again if the focus was not to create Pay to Win advantage you should have considered your founders pack not been mixed winners vs buyers.

    If you want to play 10 days before everyone else all you need to do is buy the cheapest founder pack :)

    Indeed, if the OP want's the privilege of playing the game early all they need to do is buy in like everyone else.

    I never really understand this"absolute need" to race through content. Everything will still be there when you finally get a chance to play.

    It's to lock in dominance more or less
    10 days early means 10 days to farm and 10 days for the auction hall meaning to gather enough gold to control the flow of resources. Your max level you can farm items they may need they'll have to buy from you and you'll be the one with the gold needed to flip the items they start to post. Maybe even buy them all up and reprice them.

    Basic point 10 days is overkill and there is no playing catchup with that sort of financial lead from not only the meso standpoint but the merit shop as well. On Oct 10th it will be the founders who control the market and they'll be the one to lock in designs in the merit shop as well.

    If I recall you can't resell stuff you've bought off the black market.

    I have a 10 day headstart and haven't downloaded the game yet. To be honest, I simply forgot it was today until I saw a twich streamer start playing it. I'll give it a go tonight, but I don't think the headstart a big deal. The only competitive advantage is a good housing spot, and those are taken quickly from hardcore guilds.

    Maplestory 2 is a game you cap out on quickly. The grind is $$$ when trying to get past +10, just like Vindictus.

    Ya this isn't true. A lot of the gear that puts you into level 50 dungeons are already dropping in price fast. Same with gathering mats. No one controls the AH and no one will. That is the wonderful thing we call a "free market".
