I don't see why everyone has such a problem with BB. The rearrangement of maps and readjustment of monsters and such was a bit of an annoyance, I admit, but I do not want the old maple back, frankly. Not if it means boring, meaningless grind all the sooner again. And indeed, the lower exp is the main complaint I've seen from people against BB. Really, the only people who may really see the difference are those who were able to constantly churn out lv 140-160+ chars like nothing. There is still grind in the game. I guess we're just lazier than the Easterners and don't appreciate a mindless grindfest in an mmo nearly as much.
I know grind is your thing, Step. In the end, content has to change somehow to keep things fresh, that much is undeniable |:
Also, there is still skill nerfing/buffing coming for all classes later in the year.
