    Default Is Maplestory still worth playing?

    I played Maplestory a few years ago, when you only had the base classes, and i found the game quite enjoyable. now with the addition of all of the new classes, is it still worth playing?

    I hear work is being done on MS2, although that might be years away from release.

    I enjoyed it way back when, although with the cash shop I never really got that much into it. All the cool stuff seemed to be in there. (Also, the EU version was way behind the other versions which sucked)

    If its worth playing now, I might give it another go.

    the game now is a spam fest you just spam abilities everyone dies you dont even have to dodge attacks or aim is just throwing huge attacks and killing everyone. you can get level 100 in a week but is way too easy .

    Certain bosses require you to dodge, yes getting to 100 is easy but 250 is not no one has reached it yet. Leveling past 200 is a challenge and if your not funded or certain jobs you have more challenge in leveling up. The game is worth playing I play it daily on G.A.Z.E.D and have my own alliance on there for levels 100+ I am just waiting for the Beast Tamer class to come out on the 22nd really. More classes just means more fun in my view and the original explorers have just been overhauled so it is a good time to come back. Pre Big bang was just to slow and it isn't as fast as it used to be with the removal of party play at lion kings castle,nerfing of jesters and aliens and nerfing of stronghold exp also.

    If you enjoyed the gameplay before and they've added new content since then, only you can decide if it's worth playing again.

    The general discussion forums make it look like the game is in a state of chaos or something.

    Well, based on the posts it does look like it's still worth playing. Go for it!

    this piece of shit is always in a state of chaos. nexon can't deal with the bots/hackers so they just roll back if something happens and instead of dealing with problems they just release a new class with a slew of new events that get hacked or exploited. the game is also p2w in "end game" cause u need hammers/boxes to make the best equipment so u can get into parties for bosses and such.

    no company can deal with botters if they just keep coming back. even in korea they can't do a thing about it because botters make a living out of selling mesos/game gold for real cash having their accounts banned or ip blocked only slows it down a tiny bit.

    i just think its sad that their way of dealing with an exploit or a hack or bots is just rolling back. i have never played a game that has roll backed so many times. in fact maple might be the only game i have played that has rolled back.

    One of the major problems with the game is the economy and how it's gets worse with every patch.

    Okay OP I haven't played Maple Story in a number of years but I decided to give it a go for you.

    No. It's not worth playing.

    Maplestory was always a horrible game...we were just too stupid to realise it when we were 12 years old. :P

    I reached MapleStory endgame in 15 minutes. Because in 15 minutes I ended the client and uninstalled it.

    I don't think the game is boring, but it really is badly managed and maintained.
    Which is a shame because I think I'd love this game if not for those issues.

    I may consider giving it another go eventually, probably not til the Global server gets the 6th hero though.

    I was recently thinking the same thing. I came back to Ms about a month ago and im loving it. Only reason im on this website again is because there is a patch tonite for a new class. Beast Tamer

    I gave the game another go. I'm using a Xenon on the Windia server and I think it's a really fun class with a lot of depth to it. The Beast Tamer just seemed stupid, and they shouldn't release dumb shit like that just for the sake of releasing another new class.
