    Still the strongest part of MS2 tbh, it does something that no other MMO does this well.

    Only gripe is that minigames should give more EXP for the rounds, it kinda feels like nothing and you kinda feel bad if you get eliminated in the last round & miss out on a Kay coin, better EXP gains would be a good consolation prize. Or maybe like a 15 min exp buff for grinding out mobs (which needs better exp gains too)
    just for participating or like getting past round 1.

    Best music system in the genre, love the concert hall. Love socializing while fishing.

    Add more minigames/multiplayer events
    and maybe add a timer telling you how long until the next event starts

    also maybe there can be a radio item where you can play music from youtube/downloaded on your computer and you can place it in ur home to have parties or chill with ur freinds listening to music. and you can use it in cities and stuff to play music

    Mini games seem to have not been adjusted since CBT1, some of them are still buggy and much harder than others. You should do a balance check to ensure that rewards all line up with the difficulty of each minigame. Also, it looks like we are still missing minigames that exist in other regional versions, meaning that the minigame rotation becomes very stale. In fact, the minigame rotation always pits the same modes against each other which is pretty lame. Just select them completely randomly?

    I haven't had the time to try Music yet but I expect it to go well. I expect you will add more instruments over time and support synced tempo shift across harmonies because the current system is really messed up with the independent tempo definitions.

    Socializing is supposed to be the strongest part of MS2 and so far it seems that way.

    I'm kinda sad that the Slime event rewards don't carry over, lots of people visiting eachothers houses and chit-chatting and stuff.

    There's an incorrect answer in the OX Quiz. The internationally recognized capital of Israel is Tel Aviv, not Jerusalem. Honestly, I'd pick another country to ask about, since the issue is controversial.

    They still don't know their target audience for OX Quiz, there's still some specific knowledge that only those in that area/field/age would know. Can't they just stick to thinks Mapplestory 2 related.

    lmfao @ the OX Israel question. I'd love to see data on the response rate for the NA servers vs. the EU ones. There's no way to approach such a controversial topic correctly in an environment like this; it should just get removed.

    The bomberman clone is still extremely buggy with movement and projectiles. It's incredibly frustrating to play. Simian Sea works, but the rewards should be adjusted. Currently, the XP rate decreases the farther you go. The most efficient way to level up is to suicide around 200k which feels really disappointing. It should be more efficient to try and push for as high of a score as possible.

    The mini games are fantastic! Please have more of them or make them a bit more concurrent. Always have extra OPTIONS to level up, but don't make one way almost mandatory to level up like how leveling is with the changes since there are gaps. The housing is fun if you are into it. The exploration side events are kind of cool, but maybe take out the ones that require instruments or make it something where you can get the same star by doing an instrument OR by sitting on a ladder for a minute.

    Unfortunately I didn't have access to cbt1 so I'm not sure what has and has not changed with side activities, however, I will provide some feedback from what I've gathered from them so far:

    Mini games - I enjoy them. It's a chance where everyone can get together, be a lil competitive, converse and have a good time. However, there isn't much of a variety of them. And while I do enjoy them, none of them really stand out to me. Not sure how easy/difficult it is to add new minigame content, so having more exp/rewards would also suffice.

    Music - LOVE

    Socializing - You guys have provided so many things that will require us to actually interact with one another so that helps less talkative players actually want to interact. I also think we have a pretty good community so far who want to social, interact, and be friends/friendly. So LOVE iT!

    I believe that there should be more minigames due to there being some missing in this specific version of MapleStory 2 compared to other regional versions, and it should be balanced even more because right now the difficulty to rewards ratio is not the best, at this point the games are quite difficult while not having much of a reward, making them almost seem pointless to level progression.

    Great addition to the game!

    I just played Spring Beach with tons of other people. But it was impossible to play because of the many players with nametags. You couldnt see any blocks moving. So 95% of the players were kicked out in the first round. Maybe you can make the players transparent

    For the racing mini game, I find it extremely hard to see my character especially in the beginning. It would be nice if everyone else was slightly more transparent or if there was some way to make your own character stand out more (yellow rim around your character or your character's name). I still want to see everyone else and their names, just make mine more visible.

    The only thing I actually want added in maplestory 2 is the buddy chat from maplestory 1. I want to actually be able to easily talk to the friends I make in game. As it is now the only way you ever actually socialise with friends is if you are in the same guild or meet each other in the game. I'm not gonna whisper someone, or use the chatroom stuff, but I'll talk to them in a buddy chat that sends messages to all of my friends.

    I think the autofishing duration should only decrease while you're actually fishing.

    Also, if you lose this minigame, you can't leave the area until the game is finished. You can leave other minigames if you lose.

    Not sure where Race Against Time activities really fit... I love the idea of Race Against Time giving you little daily challenges to complete. I think I saw someone mention that they wished the rewards were a little more worthwhile to get, and I agree with that. Not anything as drastic as a special mount or pet but maybe one rarer item that can be used to enchant gear or something. Also, I don't really like how it's forcing me to add random people as friends and to join a guild. I know you don't need to complete all the previous days objectives until the final 24 hour slot, but I want to complete all the challenges before I receive my next one, but those types of activities are ones that I'd like to do on my own time rather than being pushed to do it. That's just a personal opinion and may not apply to the majority of people in this game. :)

    That's an idea that won't be of any use to most people, but for the few of us that are musicians, adding a MIDI support to the game for the "Improvisation" mode of the music system could be really nice. Playing the piano on a keyboard computer is nowhere near the real thing, and some players may have a MIDI-compatible keyboard lying around. But it would probably be a pretty niche feature, and might open the game to some exploits, such as using virtual MIDI drivers to play live a MIDI loop from any audio software, therefore bypassing the whole music sheet system.

    Also, adding support for localized keyboard layouts in thisimprovization system (example : the french AZERTY keyboard) would be nice too.
