[GMS] Major Content KMS-GMS Turnover Time

I refer to the time taken for content for be ported to another service from its service of origin as the “turnover time”. It’s very interesting to see how the turnover time has changed over the years and look more deeply by doing things such as observing the exact months of release. This information can help everyone to predict when upcoming content will hit their service. Here are the KMS-GMS turnover times for major content original to KMS.

Final Job Advancement: 13 months
Pirate Class: 13 months
Family System: 4 months
Time Temple: 11 months
Cygnus Knights: 9 months
Aran Class: 5 months
Evan Class: 3 months
Dual Blade Class: 4 months
Big Bang Update: 5 months
Resistance: 5 months
Von Leon: 6 months
Chaos Update: ~7 months

The pattern of these major releases, especially recent ones, is clear if you follow the months of release.
Cygnus Knights released in KoreaMS during the Winter, GlobalMS during the Summer
Aran in KMS during the Summer, GlobalMS during the Winter
Evan in KMS during the Winter, GlobalMS during the Spring
Dual Blade in KMS during the Winter, GlobalMS during the Summer
Big Bang in KMS during the Summer, GlobalMS during the Winter, and same with Resistance
Chaos in KMS during the Winter, GlobalMS during the Summer

All of the above content has been released at times when the majority of the game’s playerbase will be on break from whatever form of school they attend.

We know that GlobalMS is getting a big content update this Spring, with Chaos over the Summer. If Nexon sticks to the above pattern, I can’t wait to know what KoreaMS will get in the Summer (what GlobalMS will likely get in the Winter),
