What's best? MS or WK? I've heard you can do more things in WK and.. you can also double jump!!
EDIT: I don't know if i should have posted this in the Free MMORPG request section or not.
MapleStory has developed very little since I started playing it years ago. The only thing to do in the game that yields any character advancement is grinding and buying stuff with real money; quests are pretty much obsolete. Everything that provides any other game with depth (A good crafting system, varied stat builds, challenging monsters, complex instances, etc.) is absent in MS, save the few exceptions. I've looked into WonderKing and already noticed that it provides a good crafting system and mining.
I don't have any intention of playing WKO (since I'm too sentimentally attached to MS) and I really doubt that I'll come back to MS, but if I had to pick I'd honestly say Wonderking.
So, I played WK to give it a try, It's actually pretty fast paced; I find myself bashing the keys and watching numbers (and monsters) fly across the screen.
I actually like the quest system in WK over the one on MS.
Thing is, WK was JUST released in the US. It has room for improvement and of course it has its set of hackers. (i've only seen one hacker so far but i've only played for about 10 hours)
Remember V.36 of GMS? It was hacker-galore!
WK is being a bit laggy since the sudden uproar of new players but surely it will die down in a bit.
(To MS' defense I've played MS since BETA and i CANNOT let go of it. I see myself trying to level a bit a few years from now. WK still has to earn the LOVE that I have for MS.)

Feel free to add me in Broa.
They're both alright, I play WK because its less grindy.
Wonderking definitely Maplestory has a lot of egoers from what I've seen...also a lot of hackers which makes the game way to easy >_>
Play MS because of it's graphic? hope you understand WK has "slightly" better graphic then MS. Other reasons are valid though.
Maplestory is crap... END OF! You cannot get anywhere without NX! Levels 1-30 are easy as heck with grinding or 'Party quests' but by the time you get to 30... To umm.. Let's say 30-200 What is the point! Grinding it pretty much time consuming taking 12983712983 years to get to 200 which is pretty much why there are MILLIONS OF HACKERS.
Money? Mesos? That's pretty much the hardest part of the game and that's why you can't get anywhere without NX if you don't wanna waste money on this game. People who have bought NX via SMS Codes sell them for mesos, probably 5 Millions mesos per SMS Code. I don't know I have played this game for ages. SMS Codes are worth 4750 NX? correct me if I am wrong.
If you've never heard of Maplestory and you think that 5 million is A LOT? *Facepalm* I'm sorry to say but items that are sold by other people are over well over priced which can range to 1 mesos (Ah! So happy so happy!)to... 2 BILLION? I'm sorry but did I just say 2 BILLION?!?! (Trust me i've seen items like that >.>) By the high demand of NX (Real money) in exchange of mesos it has caused a hyper super ultra inflation in maplestory. When you're at level 10 and you've got around 10k? *Tinkles down the drain* Buying potions and armour consumes it like acid on ice! Sorry but you're broke and you're only level 10... Fail
*Sighs* Let's get back to leveling up! As I already said leveling is as hard as BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. The only way to level up quite decently and quickly are part quests. What's that you say? Well it's a group of strangers who meet up usually 6 of them who do a quests which you need a party to complete it with... A 'Party'quest I should of just typed that. There are many party quests but if you're at the lower level end of the level range i'm sorry but they won't accept you and call you a 'noob' (Jeez that's harsh... I know).
Ohh man... So much more to talk about! But i'll just leave it as there. If you decide to play Maplestory despite the things i've just said.. Good luck!
However, I hate to say it but it's actually quite fun! It's like heaven and in your dreams where the girl of your dreams and you kiss.. kiss... =D Well for the first months of playing it, but then it starts to get quite repetitive and boring. But if you're strong enough with enough time, then you're sure to get to level 200... Whilst playing in your grave. *Facepalm* ARGH! I just can't say good things about this game! It just fails! But if you really want to check out this game? Go ahead! Just don't expect too much from this game and you will 100% get addicted!
Well maplestory was my first and it was pretty fun and all. I like the huge and i mean hugeeeee community. Made lots of friends in parties and stuff. After lvl 30 it got kinda boring with all the pq and stuff. And after lvl 40 u cant buy armour u have to make it -.- or go to Free Market and pay 10 mil for one hat don't even get me started on scrolled weapons -.-. Without NX this game really sux and since i dont live in NA it pretty hard to get NX. I love the level cap though 200 one of the highest . I came back for big bang but that disappointed me seeing that they just switched lvling from pqs to really heavier grinding. Maplestory has plenty of varieties in class and skills are pretty awsome.
Wonderking main difference is actual PvP and not Pqs which are PvP replacements which as stated are not even used any more because of big bang.
I like the graphics i think its much crisper. Also WK has wayyyyy better questing than maplestory i dont even know the point of maple questing. The skill animations are supreme.
I think Wonderking is just as equal as maplestory just depending on how you look on it. Of course most people will defend Maplestory because it was probably their first game and is so popular they don't even give a second thought about other games, but you should try both and decide which you think is better.:3
