In the dev blog by Jungsoo maplestory2.nexon.net/en/news/article/37221/producer-blog-mapleopoly-event-compensation, it is stated that " this event was fully designed and intended for anyone giving enough time to complete before Nov. 8" and "Even without the board completion Maple Coins, the event is still achievable to complete to its end goal, getting the Fluttering Maple Set and Flying Maple Leaf." yet I did not obtain the Flying Maple Leaf even though I have used nearly every coin I obtained on the roulette.

The exploiters get all the rewards and go unpunished, while people like me lose out on an event badge, title and mount. Thanks Nexon for the amazing event!

    Did you log in every day? I got both sets within about 2 weeks playing from launch.

    RNG rewards are fine and literally used in EVERY SINGLE MMO CREATED. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, Still dont have Frost scythe of Ahune or Headless Horseman and Love Rocket mounts from WoW's seasonal events after like 8 years. Sometimes you have to learn to deal with disapointment.

    Event Duration: End of Maintenance, Wednesday, Oct. 10th - Start of Maintenance, Thursday, Nov. 8th. I never missed a single day.

    I am also not a stranger to RNG. if I don't get a drop from a boss then it's fine, I'll just keep trying until I do. However, if I'm TOLD(from the producer blog) that the event is DESIGNED to give enough time to get all the rewards, then that's a completely different story.

    I'm not sure what to tell you. The maple spin event in particular was kind of designed like a gachapon which is a staple in f2p mmos.

    I know how they wrote it wasnt particularly clear. But im pretty sure what they meant was that logging in daily would give you enough coins to complete the 50 trips around the board of mapleopoly to attain the costume. I know they also included the maple leaf mount in their write up, but I believe that was in error as the entire rest of the paragraph they were writing about was about how they were giving bonus coins at lvl 50 to make up for the people that were achieving all the extra coins by making trips around the board before the fix. I think they accidentally mentione the maple leaf in error as a reward from the board.

    I agree with you on this, but that wasn't the problem (I should have worded the title better). The problem was telling us that the event was designed to give us enough time to get all the rewards and not getting said rewards at the end of the event even with 100% participation and attendence.

    When you put it that way, it makes sense. It was just a simple mistake. If we do give them the benefit of the doubt then I'll have to once again, chalk it up to another episode of me having awful luck.

    couldn't say it better myself, i still haven't able to farm those rare mounts that roam open world in past xpacs, but it doesn't get me down. Agree RNG huge thing in rpgs and mmorpgs a like, have people not play RPG before when you kill mobs and get herb or item drop that's RNG. Guys not everyone will get that item to drop in their play through, only if you do ton of grinding.

    I remember in dragon quest 8 was grinding first area near first town for items, what was sad i bought everything then i had fight and boomerang dropped i was "gah" i could of saved gold lmao

    Well this is a bummer. I only got 2 maple leaves and 100+ coins on my 3rd alt saved to roll again today after work. I guess... I won't be rolling for my 3rd leaf.

    Mapleopoly was RNG but the halloween one wasn't, so there's a 50/50 chance the thanksgiving event won't be RNG.

    I did my 50 rounds and got exactly one maple leaf after using every coin since release. The other account I have has 4 or 5 leafs. The wheel was rather harsh.

    So I just read the patch notes and it says you can get a yellow flower glider, which looks similar to the maple leaf. Yay GMS2 Nexon team.

    It was a totally reasonable event. Someone's just mad they weren't lucky enough to get what they wanted.

    That's not even how it worked. The mount wasn't even on the board; it was on the spinner.
