    Default Wonderking coming back to NA/EU

    https://www.facebook.com/WonderKing

    We know some of you are on the edge of your seats awaiting info, and we have some updates to announce. Currently translation is in progress for Korean to English, so it is confirmed we will be using the new v2 Clients for those familiar.

    Next is to answer a big question many are unaware of: "Will we have our previous account info?"

    The answer to this sadly is no. Given that IG has dropped out of the picture this will be a new Publisher so they do not have access to the data that IG holds which is IG's property. So no you will have to start over however for many veterans this may be good news as there won't be worries of who had hacked or duped items etc.

    Security wise: Things are being redesigned from the inside and out as security is a BIG concern due to the previous issues seen with the previous publisher. Actions are being taken to prevent this and by prevent we don't mean IP block we mean blocking exploits and improving security. Yes there will always be a way around something however part of the agreement with the developers is to ensure that when something comes up that it is quickly patched or the source found and fixed.

    Server locations: They will be hosting both NA and EU and have provisioned hardware to support this via both sides to minimize/eliminate lag for either party ( NA or EU ) this will introduce a larger community, giving more room for parties, items, sales ( Ira's Market) and guild's.

    The Publisher will announce themselves shortly so stay tuned. Keep spreading the word as we'll be booming once things are announced officially. Currently their Goal for opening is sometime in May so we're a little more than a month out, though once active they will be taking questions and providing as much feedback as allowed.

    Stay tuned and keep up with us at http://www.ClubWK.com/ the official fansite for information and updates. You can also come chat with us at http://clubwk.chatango.com/ Hope to see all of you there! Stay tuned!

    Awesome, though WK2 is certainly playable on the asian servers their rates are quite low and fairly mind numbing at times.

    Never had the chance to try it, so I'm actually pretty excited about it.

    I think they're private publishing it actually.

    Similar to latale it implements more active/dynamic combat than Maple but still has a fun, somewhat casual aura to it if you will.

    No publisher has been announced yet. All that's been said is that they have a publisher and the English translation of the game is under way. The publisher is set to make an announcement before the month's end.

    I'm all down for Wonderking back in my hands... I had a blast with the community and made many friends.
    But.. yes there's a but..
    I heard that the other 2 versions of WK2, Japan and Thailand, I think those were the 2, are now shutting down.
    If those 2 are shutting down, then won't the NA Version soon go down as well?
    Or can, whoever publishes this, keep the game up and running with their own updates, etc.?

    I just loudly cackled in real life. Please tell me you're kidding.

    The controls are abysmal, the skill animations are significantly worse than anything on the current version of Maple Story (keep in mind that all old classes have been revamped, visually and technically).

    If you think Wonderking has better sprites than Maple Story your opinion is pretty much invalid and you need to get your eyes checked. They both have pretty bad art direction but at least I can enjoy Maple Story on an ironic level. Wonderking just looks like ass.

    This game is pretty much the same as Maple Story in every way, except significantly worse. There's even mining in Maple Story now. At least LaTale attempts to be different than Maple. Wonderking didn't even try. There's a reason it keeps getting shut down and it's not because it's amazing.

    Just to clarify, I'm not saying that Maple Story is the most awesome game ever and you should all play it. It is what it is. Wonderking is a worse version of it. Kinda gives a bootleg-vibe, it's sloppier, buggier, Chinese knockoff-ish.

    @Retto
    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).
