    Hello Legends,

    Boat rides have been a feature on our server since 2014, basically the beta of our server. At the very beginning, we've always had the full timed GMS-like durations applied without any form of skips.

    For many years, we've never done really anything regarding boat rides. Some praise that, some think it takes way too long, and some just wish you could skip it altogether.

    As much as 2 years ago we've made a community poll about boat rides found by clicking here.

    While this isn't about boat ride durations, it's about a skipping option. Back then about 50% of the poll was for it and 50% were not. Due to giving priority to nostalgia, we went against it.

    Two years later now and you may have noticed we started to do a few events where the duration is shortened by 50%. Not just for boat rides, but all transportations.

    Pretty much everyone either praises it or don't mind the times being shortened by 50%.

    MapleLegends made over the years many evolution and changes. This is either to keep push the server forward or because my general opinion of things has changed. Furthermore, we keep looking over what makes users stay in our server and what makes them leave.

    On top of that, we have noticed other servers trying to be harder and more difficult than we are, and they got 100% transportation times as well, so it's also more likely for users favoring the full duration that they are already playing these kinds of servers anyway, or are a very old user on this server and got tired of the non-stop waiting between rides.

    After a discussion, we've decided to keep the transportation rides, at least for now, permanently cut by 50%. That means that Orbis rides are now 5 minutes and not 10, and so on. The waiting time 'in-between' is cut by 50% as well.

    We hope by this change users are less waiting and more enjoying MapleLegends. While the option of skipping the ride is not really on my (or our) radar right now, we hope this change is seen as a positive one for current and new users to enjoy.

    Do note we have the rights at any time to reverse the time back to full 100% if we see any reasons to do so.

    If you have any feedback regarding this change, please let us know~
