It was! I've made a game for my students every year, and last year I'd made English Warrior. I was going to focus on other things, but once MV came out, I felt inspired to make it.
MV is a pretty sweet thing I must say. Even though bringing VX Ace projects to MV can be tricky, but it's so worth it in the end.
Definitely agree. Once MV came out, I had no intention of going back to VX Ace.
I only use VX Ace for porting processing.
