    Hi, I would like to create this poll to gauge feedback around the recent change to reduce the number of in game channels from 8 to 6.

    I can understand the perspective of making a server feel more populated during a phase of decreased activity, but in my opinion, this comes at a massive consequence to the players and will only lead to further decline in server population.

    This recent event has introduced a raffle, where you can either kill 100 mobs or 1 boss. However, trying to find a channel to actually do this is becoming exceedingly difficult. There are 1hr+ wait times for some popular bosses on every channel and people are logging off unhappy without completing the boss or the event.

    For a game that has players from a wide variety of different time zones, this causes schedule conflicts where some people are not able to wait an hour or more for a channel to open up so that they can play with their friends at a time close to what they agreed upon the day before.

    The end result is that, because they are not able to successfully group with friends to do in game content, people will stop logging in altogether because the game is not providing the same satisfaction that it once was, thanks to a nerf in the amount of playable channels.

    This is just my opinion though, and I encourage you to share your own.
    Do you agree or disagree? Has this affected the way that you play?
    Has this made it easier or harder to play the game the way that you prefer?

    It is actually noticeable how suddenly people are "sniping" channels from each other after the reduction.
    While I do agree that it made random interactions increase between people, I feel that this negatively affected bossing as a whole.

    I'm wondering if it's possible to make multiple instances in channels. Like make 2 parties able to boss on the same channel?
    Or just increase the channel count by 1 to 7 channels.

    Edit: This is channel 2 by the way. It is locked even though nobody's inside.

    I can't say I've enjoyed it. A few of our popular maps (ulu2, skeles) are getting quite cramped. It would be nice if we re-added the mini-dungeon experience as to allow more players access to those maps.

    I've noticed one of my Horntail groups moved their start time 3 hours later. A few groups I participate in had to cancel because they couldn't get a channel. I haven't really noticed this happen before. Seems like the channel changes should have been made after the event when the server isn't at it's peak.

    Decrease it even more, 4 maybe.
    Lower area boss spawn timers across the board and also increase the time variance.
    Then have multiple same channel instanced boss runs.
    I'm drunk but I'm right

    Also maybe this will create more metas since leech map and multimage spots have more competition

    I don’t boss so don’t know about bossing part. With daily play I feel more joyful than before. Like every where I go has some people around. I think this is what maplestory attracted me when I was a kid. Making more friend and gathering.

    I wouldnt mind if bossing was instanced. I think it's lame that people can't get into HT when server is popping.
