So, logged in with some mule character, and bam. Got a coin. And it turns out, it's now also the main character for the event.

Great. Punished for not looking at the announcement to AVOID stupidity, again. How stellar.

    i believe you had 36 minutes before getting the coin so can you really blame the event? and they have the event ads on the login launcher too

    Yeah I can. You don't realize BEFORE you get the coin.

    And the ad only appears when you log in to the launcher. It doesn't work if you weren't logged out of the launcher to begin with.
    Besides, the ad usually only shows up MapleStory events.

    If you're talking about the game page info, well. This is all that's it.

    My point is that announcements are meant to bring in news. Not to avoid whatever stupidity the one with the responsibilities managed to whip up.



    Speaking of. I don't think I see the event anywhere on the announcement forum. Was it even part of something else?

    I mean I live alone. Is there any particular reason for me to log off, besides restarting the computer once in a while?

    This is for the best.
    But, what more can Nexon do?
    How would they implement a warning about events where the first character to login will be the main for the event?
    Perhaps players should readjust their login procedures by not logging into their alts first?

    We could do what we've always done. Talk to some Joe. We've had less reasons to spawn more Joes, so this wouldn't do much else.

    Or use the existing Blaanid. She's pretty permanent, ain't she?


    I just don't understand why we went away from that format, and it irritates me.

    I just have developed a habit of always logging into my main first.

    Or you can check the website since they post the announcements there or if you are in the discord you can check there or you could just log into your main first.

    They still do for certain events, but not all.

    She kind of vanishes from Dunbarton when she becomes your partner/pet.

    Since there wasn't a maintenance I never actually got logged off for the event to start, all of a sudden my Alt gets a Blaanid coin, and became the main character for that event without warning. It's not an issue for me since they are on the same server as my main, but I didn't even make the mistake of logging into my alt first, I was just actively playing at the time. (Eu hours means the event started at 3pm for me, which is a perfectly reasonable time to be playing.)

    The lack of a maintenance probably threw a lot of people off for this event tbh.

    Oh no.

    Overly attached.
    (Everyone should gather in one spot and summon all the Blaanids).
    Can she be seen now?

    Yeah, I honestly didn't expect the event. I popped up on the website to go the forums and that's when I saw the notices.

    I want more information on the doll bag, what size is it? Does it just loot gold or does it do other things like the special Ferghus doll. I must know!

    The event lasts a long time. If you can get coins on your main, you'll have enough for the bag and the other thingy for sure.

    You cannot get coins on the character who was not automatically selected as the main character for the event. Only the first character you were logged into when the event started can get the coins.
