Dope looking forward to playing it.

Strange hatred against the game.
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).
Currently playing :Grand Fantasia(yet again...)
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%?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.
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.
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.
