Aww, the questions about if they had plans to increase max character slots wasn't chosen.
I doubt 9 & 10 will get actual answers.
IMO question 7 will probably have the obvious answer. Nexon didn't like it when players could transfer nx clothes onto their pirates(being the first new job) and probably because of that, Nexon decided to separate cash shops from characters, to increase possible profit as nothing can be shared to new jobs, forcing the player to either charge more or don't charge at all. Only interested in 3 and 4.
Should these ever get answers, we will be getting PR'd. Meaning, they will be very politically correct, which is useless to us. This is not a company that has ever shown initiative to be transparent with its playerbase, I don't think this will change at all. It has gotten a tad better at the BASIC level (ex. day-to-day operations), but in terms of the high-arching questions such as the ones you've chosen, you shouldn't expect any proper answers.
Just to everyone who submitted a question and has commented in this thread: We had a limited amount of questions so we did the best we could to take into account the highest voted questions (I believe 9/10 if not all of them were all questions that received the highest votes, with some slight editing on our part of course). I know everyone is skeptical- and so very, very rightly so.
Whether or not these honest and direct questions receive honest and direct answers is not the entire point of this interview. Yes, in a perfect world we would love for Nexon to be candid with us but that probably will not happen. I think it is important that these questions be asked...that someone at least has the balls in the MapleStory community to ask these questions and to at least give all of you guys who really care about the game a chance to feel like some of the issues with the game are being acknowledged or at the very least brought up directly to Nexon.
I'm a honest guy and anyone who has read Maple-News over the past five years or knows me knows that. I've tried to remain pretty transparent with you all about this whole process and I am hoping that Nexon sees that these questions are not attacks and that by answering them honestly they will not be hurting their business but rather acknowledging that they do care about the future of this game and its community. Do I expect that to happen? The pessimist in me says no. The smart thing would've been to throw softball questions just like Basil Market or any other fan site who would be given this opportunity and I can tell you Im already paying for it. But, I wasn't about to do that and neither were any of you here at Southperry.
I hope we all get the answers we're looking for.
Thanks for everyone's participation and thanks to Eos for making this happen.
These are some great questions. I bet Nexon was expecting questions like: "cake or pie?" and then got hit hard with reality. Nice choices.
Thank you Alloy

I don't think they'll answer the questions and just ignore the email seeing the questions they got.
Bottom line is: you guys can't have it both ways. Everyone wanted a hard-hitting interview and that was what was submitted. If you want a puff-piece then go check out Basil Market. We made judgment calls to the best of our ability and tried to incorporate 90% of the original questions that were submitted while doing our best to squeeze in as much as humanly possible in the limited amount of questions we were allowed to ask. If anyone takes issue with this interview or the questions submitted then you can go and complain to Nexon.
I hope we will see what the ultimate result of this interview is soon and I stand by the questions we submitted whatever the outcome.
Yay I got chosen! I'm interested in 2 in all honesty.
They're going to hear that and disregard the question entirely, that's what was my inquiry. You should have made it a clear cut "Are you going to ever reevaluate the miracle cubes, as the difference of power from the nx benefit has an unreasonable gap that can measure to 100x more than an average player."Originally Posted by you
None the less I don't see most of these questions being answered because I don't think they have the answers.
We will be receiving the answers to our interview questions very soon. I have spoken with Nexon's PR Rep and she apologized saying that the Maple Team has been swamped with all the updates this past month and will get us the interview back as soon as possible.
Given the delay on the answers, it's fairly obvious that the answers, assuming they are all answered, will be fairly PR as said before and not mean much of anything for us. Though I will be more than glad to be completely wrong about that. I love the questions.
