    I played both Maple Story and WonderKing for several months and I'd also say that gameplay-wise WonderKing is much better than MapleStory. Alone because of jump, double jump and dash. WonderKing offers ways to actually dodge damage, this isn't really possible in MapleStory. In MS you usually just spam skills so the monsters don't reach you, there is no dodging at all. Also the minigames in WonderKing are really fun and there are plenty. Even though WonderKing is like 10 times smaller than MapleStory it has like 10 times more minigames.

    It isn't better in all aspects, though. MapleStory has more exploration (WonderKing is really linear). MapleStory also has the better OST, but the WK OST isn't bad.

    While I'm happy WonderKing comes back I probably won't give it a second try unless they change the following:
    1. More inventory room for non-paying players (I bought inventory bags back then but I don't want to buy them a second time).
    2. Faster leveling (it really was too grindy back then).
    The root abyss bosses and some others require tactics you can't just stand in one spot or you will die.

    Wat. r u sure u played WK? I had a onrpg guild there and a good portion made it to engame, which is big, since a lot of people here are game hoppers... heres a vid of my warlock getting 1% a min at level 125... get outta here with that.
    Well for me leveling was slow, I did all the quests available and even if I was done with them I still needed to get 40% exp for the next level. Getting the last 40% always took me one or two hours and it was boring because there aren't so many different places to access on the same level. And the death penalty was pretty high I think 3% or 5%?

    Game needs at least 2x exp for me to play it again. Especially now that I know all the content from level 1-50. If I can't rush to 50, no point in playing it again.

    That's the thing, you weren't supposed to do all the quests really. You did the first handful to get geared and early funding, then just went all monster hunter and beat the shit out mobs and bosses to level, only hitting up specific quests for skill points or other special items/abilities/bonuses.

    Obviously that isn't for everyone though, some like questing to level games, some of us like fighting to level games.

    Grats to the dedicated group who are WK loyalists and pushed to get the game back into the english market.

    Looking forward to trying it out.. Looks much more appealing compared to MS tbh.

    Anyways, development has been put on hiatus again.

    Really now...
    "At least LaTale attempts to be different than Maple. Wonderking didn't even try."
    " Wonderking is a worse version of it. Kinda gives a bootleg-vibe, it's sloppier, buggier, Chinese knockoff-ish."
    Both from Retto's post.
    I only quoted his subjective comment on my first post because it was completely unnecessary and kind of rude. Not sure how you deem someone's opinion irrelevant.

    Because the post was about sprites, not about the date it was published? Maybe that's your fault for not putting enough context in your post.

    There were no questions asked. Why are you starting off your comment with "Because"? I explained that the post had more content to it than I quoted. Your post serves no purpose at this point. Either way, Retto's post implied that Wonderking copied Maplestory, which is not true whatsoever and quite frankly impossible.

    Never played Wonderking, it looks more fun than MS, but not as fun as La Tale. . I'll try it out I guess whenever it comes out.

    IF it comes out.This is supposedly "being made" by some small group who has never made a game before and is attempting to bring back a massive online game. They have shown nothing concrete that they are even developing it and currently it just seems like a big troll. All they have shown is a couple of screenshots of a level 1 character that could of been taken years ago. This month they put up a picture of a crying santa saying development is on hold. If you go on the inumedia facebook page you see a post saying "Neat. I have likes now." Seems like a ploy for getting likes as it is linked from the wonderking-us page. They don't even have a website for the game they have a company site that is just a landing page and they have a patreon. Maybe they are just trying for money and likes? I won't be surprised if they try a patreon funding for wonderking to scam the massive wonderking community.

    I may be wrong but I am not holding my breath on it coming back

    For me it was better than LaTale but not maple

    You really think so? It's a shame. I got so hyped up that I never really realized the pieces didn't fit together. Wonderking was by far one of my favorite games. I just hope one day WK will return to us. The G.O.A.T of 2D sidescrollers in my opinion.

    For me WonderKing is basically an improved MapleStory gameplay-wise. Though MapleStory far excels it in terms of content and exploration.

    LaTale is trying to be different, it solves the hacking issues by doing all movements server-sided. It makes it feels much slower and unreactive but in exchange you have no "vacuum hackers" because that's simply not possible. I wouldn't necessarily say it's better or worse than MS, just that it's different and an alternative.

    @Rya.Reisender
    Yup. You nailed it. I've played all three and I like them all. Though I'm not sure why Soul Saver Online hasn't been mentioned by anyone. I do believe Soul Saver Online (previously known as Ghost Online) was the OG 2D sidescroller chibi-type MMO. I've never played much of it because it crashes a lot and I had installation problems. I'm pretty sure Wonderking and Maplestory used Ghost Online as a model or so it seems.

    Edit: Or maybe I'm wrong... I'm really confused as to when Ghost Online was made.

    I think Ghost Online was the first game of this sort but I don't think it ever came out on English (except Malaysian server) until Soul Saver Online which was muuuuch later.

    Ghost Online and Wind Slayer are a bit different again though. They have this "If you hit something you can't hit it again for x seconds" system which makes the gameplay feel quite different.

    Rest in peace, Z9 Star. The game that was supposed to fill Wonderking's role in my life.
