    I personally like having fewer channels to make the game more social, I don't think having to wait to PQ is worth sacrificing that but I can understand if you disagree

    PQs became instanced in a later version, though I'm not sure if it can be back-ported into v62. I think it's worth doing if it's possible. I also think thre shouldn't be more channels, as it builds community if players encounter each other more, but waiting to do a common activity isn't the way forward either. At levels 21-30 and again at 35-50 there really isn't an alternative to PQing unless you can afford to buy leech, since grinding is much slower.

    I do not assume that as a positive nostalgia among the majority of the players. I see no gain in waiting for 20 minutes (or more) for each run in LPQ and that was the reason I ditched LPQ so fast, despite it being my favorite.

    I do think that allowing multiple runs in PQs similar to how GMS did eventually will increase the number of participants in PQs and thus create more social opportunities.

    I'd like that.

    Grinding is definitely not much slower. I started a new page recently and ended up at teddies from 22-35 and was leveling once every 10-30 minutes. Genins are probably even faster and drop mithril ores for some potion money but the map layout is a little worse I think. After teddies I went to straw target dummies (STDs) from 35-46 and leveled once every 30-45 minutes. This was on a character with 40 base int, clean weapon (until lvl 35), and no attack glove. The only item I had on that wasn't clean was a scrolled blue wisconsin for some accuracy which could easily be made up by adding base dex instead of base int. To 100% hit these mob you need 58 accuracy at lvl 22 for brown teddies and 88 accuracy at lvl 35 for STD. STD might be a little harder for most people but even staying at teddies for a few extra levels isn't that bad. I saw people as high as 45-50 training on teddies because they mob really well and the exp is solid. There's also this guide on the forums for getting from 1-36 in 6 hours through questing so there definitely are alternatives to PQing.

    https://forum.maplelegends.com/inde...-for-1-35-in-under-6-hours.29751/#post-207948

    Meanwhile there are times where I've had 1 LPQ take 30 minutes and gain only 20-30%. Now it's probably even worse because it's so congested you have to wait to find a channel.

    I do like the nostalgia of tracking, spamming click for pq.
    This opportunity might not come again, because ml may not have this much concurrent players anymore after the end of covid season (of course I hope covid ends fast though).
    So appreciate this nostalgia while it last.

    Yeah I see your point.
    I also think there's an up side for the current situation as it forces people to do more stuff rather than sitting in floor 101 and this contributes for more social opportunities.

    I like to camp at the mushroom place but the thought of holding 1 out of 7 possible channels to PQ forces me to go out and do the PQ again out of guilt. IMO, It's a zero-sum system that shouldn't be encouraged in the first place as the 'competitiveness' is quite out of place. Maple should first and foremost be a PVE game where people can just chill, not a bunny race to get a PQ slot. Why would I play maple if I want that then? I can just go to the many PVP FPS, MOBA or Battle Royale games. The only nostalgic part I can remember is of camping and stealing spots, spying, typing /find and a general sense of frustration.
