    I have noticed there's actually new questions, which are not in the wiki so I'm just winging it by looking at the Joemeter since if a lot are on the right answer the meter goes down, and when they leave the right answer the meter goes up.
    Well dang, if there's new questions, can't fully rely on the wiki or google D:
    Sounds like a good idea to watch the meter xD

    Why not google? Cuz nexon says Kobe Bryant was born in Los Angeles instead of Philadelphia [noparse]>.<[/noparse]
    Ferghus must've helped make the event, cuz somebody's hand was slippin when they assigned the answer to that question ;)

    Standard Nexon QC Yo!

    some questions REALLY need fixed. I've already seena few questions that are half a question and have (incomplete) at the end.

    there was a question that was literally just "2 hydrogen" .... WTF

    there was another question "President Lincoln appeared on the american [Sic]" ..... WHAT. it was false but how was anyone supposed to know that?

    technically these aren't questions, they're factoids but whatever

    I feel like some of the questions the majority of the mabi population won't know because they are culture references or passing fads (things that are popular for awhile but don't always remain such). Like for example I got a question about the game called Half Life and what the boss's name is...now I have a 50% chance of guessing right, but I never played the game and barely even know of it so it seemed a bit odd that everyone is expected to know this (without using wiki). Mabi uses 100% of my memory and 100% of my CPU to run so I can't open browser and switch back and forth between mabi and wiki without causing one thing to crash or the other.

    As my guildie Sphyra suggested: The quiz should only include mabinogi related questions so that way majority of the players can have a chance at answering. People would learn some interesting facts about the game and maybe some background information, but at the same time I'd say more people could relate to questions being asked about a game they are actively playing rather than something popular awhile back targeting only a small amount of people.

    Make the quiz Mabi trivia not everything else trivia people may or most likey won't know about.

    My suggestion about incomplete questions is maybe post on the announcement page and let them know about it, and what questions it's happening in? If I remember correctly, the last time we got the event they actually were letting players tell them what questions were broken and stuff for that reason, whether they were ever fixed or not, I can't say :/

    Also @Samuelalex do you have a phone or tablet you can use to open the wiki on? That's what I do is just keep the wiki open on my phone instead of switching back and forth on my laptop. Seems a lot quicker this way tbh.

    It's always been like that though, previous OX Quizzes had questions not pertaining to Mabinogi whatsoever. It's been that way for so long, sigh. At the very least you're getting 1-5 coupons per question rather than 1 per question in those previous events.

    I do agree though that some questions need to be fixed. Example would be, "The Onion Knight is a character class in Final Fantasy Tactics." That one is true, but turns out to be false. Others such as "There have been six NASA lunar landings" is also true, but in-game it is false. O_O That annoys me.

    So even the answers we do know are wrong mabi please....... pl e a s e.........
    Either there was a problem in creating the event and lining up questions/answers or they're just very confused.

    To fix this issue, because we all know they're not gonna fix the questions any time soon, we should lessen he cost of boxes. 5 coupons for normal and 10 for the bonus.

    Yup lost to that one



    I think some Nexon employees need to learn how to use google
    Also hit one saying apollo 11 was the 1st NASA mission to land on the moon, and the answer was false even though even Nasa says it is true. Now if they had go to the moon then yes it would have been false(and what I assume they wanted) as there were a few missions to the moon prior to test the equipment.

    There's a thread in B&G section about these issues with the T/F questions. If you guy can get screenies of the wrong ones, then you can post them to that thread and state what the wrong answer is so hopefully it can get corrected. Idk if I want to try the event now lol.

    My friend and somebody recently had a heated argument over triangles always being 180°.
    It was false. Not all triangles are 180° because there are wacky shaped triangles. Apparently.
    I just followed everyone else, I suck at geometry. I answered Illuminati.

    what they call "spherical triangles" which IMO are not really triangles as they don't have 3 straight sides, and are not considered triangles in Euclidean geometry which is what pretty much everyone is thought in school, and virtually everything is designed around.

    I am so tired of all of these broken events. This O-X event has got to be the absolute worst with how many incorrect answers there are to the questions. And not only do questions not match up with the answers, but they always pop up as question 2-3 so I wind up getting about 4 tickets max. This has been the 6th time today this has happened. Why even run an event if it's going to be this bad?

    So who else thinks this is the most broken event yet? Out of 10 runs yesterday I had 7 where a question was incorrect either on Mabi or the Wiki.

    I just lost some coupons because Nexon thinks that water does not freeze at 0 Celsius. Everyone was kicked out from there and only 1 guy got lucky for deciding to go against herd lol. That was funny.

    I also get really annoyed when people start to massively hit Joe's.... It really messes up meter and i sometimes can't tell which square is correct plus it makes us get mostly 1-2 coupons when people start doing that.
