    This is my first event with a global boss in maple legends and i cant stop thinking why cant we make something like this permanent!

    The idea of having to farm items from normal monsters to summon a global boss that everyone is interested in doing because of "ap resets" and "rare gachapons" sounds very healthy to the game.

    Of course the rewards would have to change, but i wouldnt mind doing it for just one ap reset or maybe like 2 rare gachapons... maybe a special chair if you killed the boss for 100+ times?

    Also the number of "cakes" to be collected could be increased so it would be summoned with less frequency, and the monster could be changed to match a current season of the game.

    Whats your opinion?

    That could be fun!

    I like the idea.

    Even if the reward is a single gacha ticket.

    Seeing everyone comes together at one time in one place really makes the game feel alive.

    You've got my vote for this at least. A world boss that everyone can do, on a regular basis. The rewards will need to be enough to justify doing that over what they're currently doing though.

    Like currently people straight up ditch zaks or pqs whenever they see the announcement. If the reward is reworked into a gacha ticket or two, it probably won't be any different from just another random, dead and quiet piece of content in maple.

    I think it'd take the hype away from when we do have an event that includes a global boss, which I consider a bad thing :v

    I'd vote no, not without significant restructuring of the game. As much as I think Puff Daddy-like events are good for the community aspect and spectacle for the new player, they tend to overstay their welcome by the end of events.
    I think this year's puff daddy did a pretty decent job of highlighting its strengths as a side event, while simultaneously balancing being lucrative enough to entice players while not creating too much FOMO for missing out. Keeping it around outside of event periods will get old fast, however, and I additionally think it'd be much harder to "balance" it in a non-event setting.

    I think it might be a good idea, but in a way that everyone has similar damage if it is rewarded for damage, to be in a normal boss, that "green list" thing is bad

    They could replace the global boss with the event boss for the duration of the event no? Would add some variety too.

    Great suggestion, the standard global boss could give like 1 coupon that could be traded for one ap reset / gacha / apple... The event global boss would give better rewards like the current ones.

    I liked the idea!
    I also trust that the Balance Team can make it not so OP.

    And then keep the throw axe skill because the main characters doing that boss would probably be the ones going to hp wash. Would make an awesome way to make additional Apr that's not too excessive too, the chars now don't need to just save NX.

    I also think this could be fun! But I would be worried about it losing its appeal / becoming another piece of content that is largely ignored. Maybe if it were similar to Monster Park in GMS where the rewards change every day it would be a little more interesting. IE: Monday could be AP resets, Tuesday could be gach tickets, maybe Saturday/Sunday could pull from the whole pool randomly, etc.

    I proposed the idea that way so that they could adopt current infrastructure basically wholesale. Changing the drop like that might require additional work from the team.

    These are pretty much our concerns with a permanent community-wide boss. It's a type of content that we would rather keep as a special occurrence, to maintain its novelty factor and the appeal it adds to the event it's part of.

    On the other hand, as it's finally been upgraded to our new scripting standards, this type of "community collecting" content will see more usage in future events. The current version is still not perfect (mostly because we've been experimenting with multiple Cake instances in the same channel, which makes it easier for players to quickly pick a free slot, but apparently also brings a few unexpected glitches with it), but it will be corrected.
