Hi RainbowYarn. Most of our players prefer to use the official Discord or the unofficial Reddit for discussion, especially these kinds of returning player questions.
NA East and NA West are populated. Europe is less than them, and OCE/SA are less than Europe. I would still generally advise that you pick the server closest to your location though for ping-related reasons. Depending on when you stopped playing, you may have missed out on a great deal of changes, both in content and QOL. Why you stopped playing in the first place is also an important factor.
Bug Type: Combat
Summary: Other wizards can stack each other's Hurricane Warnings with their Ice spears/Ice Bombs, causing significant rotation issues when more than 1 I/L wizard is in a party. It is expected that only the wizard that casted their hurricane warning be able to stack only their own.
Steps to Reproduce: Have 1 wizard cast Hurricane Warning on a dummy, and have the other stack it with ice spear or ice bomb.
This is intended behavior for this skill and won't be adjusted.
Every day, the Escaped Moon Bunny world boss appears at 7:30 PM, 8:30 PM, 9:30 PM, and 10:30 PM (UTC) at Boulderwhite Mountain on each channel! Defeat it with your fellow Maplers to receive the goodies it drops!Loot can include Onyx Crystals, Crystal Fragments, Lapis Master Snare, Metacells, Colorful Crystal Boxes, a low chance of a Lapenshard Selection Box, and a guaranteed Pumpkin Jewel to spend at the Witchling Shop!
Regarding the Oceania Server
Is the Moon Bunny Run intended to only be for Oceania players who don’t sleep/work/go to school? Some example time zone conversions:
- AWST (e.g., Perth): 3:30am - 6:30am
- AEST (e.g., Brisbane): 5:30am - 8:30am
- ACDT (e.g., Adelaide): 6:00am - 9:00am
- AEDT (e.g., Sydney): 6:30am - 9:30am
- NZDT (e.g., Auckland): 8:30am - 11:30am
- etc. etc.
Additionally, as there are now only 4 Oceania channels, even players who are able to play at those VERY off-peak hours are only going to be able to gain a fraction of the event rewards that players on the European and US servers can (e.g., a maximum of 16 pumpkin jewels a day versus 28 to 36).
Witchling's Shop: It takes approximately 17 days of event participation to purchase everything!
Is this taking into account the considerably lower number of jewels that the Oceania players can obtain (due to the poor timing of the Moon Bunny Run and much reduced number of channels)?
I am sure that the intent behind this isn’t to exclude or disadvantage Oceania players in any way, so I am hoping that there might be some consideration given to:
- Swapping the Moon Bunny Run to a time more accessible to the bulk of the Oceania population, and
- Doubling the Moon Bunny Run drop rate so that Oceania players can gain a similar number of rewards as our 9-channel US and 7-channel European brethren.
We'll be discussing the event times internally today to see if there's something we can do, but I cannot guarantee anything (this is the first time there's a time-specific event in GMS2 and it appears to have been designed around UTC-0 being the prime hours, which may be an oversight). When I have news to share on this, I will share it immediately.
The 17 day expectation is in belief that players defeat the Escaped Moon Bunny four times every day (once per hour), and it includes being able to buy everything, including items players may have little care for pending on their wants and needs (in reality, you or someone else may need much less coins if you don't want, for example, the furniture box).
Customer support closes my ticket before it's fixed.
Just so unfair, the only reason for buying from the style coin shop is to buy the cosmetic but the badge I purchased was not what was represented in the store. I'm unable to dismantle for coins so I'm stuck with a broken item and a customer support team who doesn't know how to help.
Why can't someone just fix the broken animation on it?
On second inspection, on our testing we have the fishies.
Are you 100% sure it's not your graphics settings? I'll have someone go test on OCE specifically.
Edit: We had our QA test on OCE specifically, and the sharks were appearing for them. Please check your graphical settings.
