    He meant P2W because people just started buying NX and then trading it for mesos to get the best gear for the most damage and I believe pvp was supposed to come out in Maplestory, not sure what happened to that idea though.

    I have also made a twitter account if you would like to follow, I will note any major changes there as well. Follow me @MapleTogether

    I found the secret to legitimately enjoying maple. Take a sip of an adult beverage for every 5%. Roughly 3 beers per level. By 75% you enjoy it a lot.

    Love the skills change too.

    I dunno. I don't pq and I like to play casually, so they tailored it perfectly for me.
    Just saying, I would be very careful to get into MS at this moment. There's a reason why the populations are currently 5% the numbers they used to be.

    Nexon cust**** service will just ignore you, there is no GMs, hackers run the servers, hackers can literally block you, crashing your client whenever they want or set up a bot to crash your client repeatedly every time you try to log in. Btw you don't have to start anything or do anything to have this happen to you. You could just look at someone funny.

    Even if you pay tons of money, Live Chat supports will just close the chat/hang up on you, there's only 1 GM for all of GMS.

    Some kid recently started slashing his wrists because he was getting bullied every day by hackers and the GMs ignored him for like 6 months. Not sure if he's ok

    They regularly do these "Second Chance" event things, where they unban all the hackers, including perm banned hackers, dupers and so on. They just open the flood gates and let them back in. after they started doing that, hackers got even more cocky because they rightly figured that their bans can never be permanent so why bother following the rules


    also even if you get banned for hacking or botting you don't get removed from the rankings anymore so almost the whole top 10 is illegit

    basically the game has more hackers than GunZ or some other random F2P shooting/room based game, it's nuts

    oh yeah and they made it so you have to pay like $1000 worth of NX to even have a chance at a lot of the bosses

    if you still want to play despite this then rock on I quit recently btw

    Cust**** service does suck, but there aren't many hackers all. If you find one, its typically an out of way area no one really bothers with anyways. The botting thing is pretty bullshit from like years ago, no one does that anymore.

    I haven't bothered with live support but I do agree GM spottings are rare.

    There are stories about gamers being retarded all the time, the more extreme ones.

    They regularly do these "Second Chance" event things, where they unban all the hackers, including perm banned hackers, dupers and so on.

    False.

    False.

    basically the game has more hackers than GunZ or some other random F2P shooting/room based game, it's nuts
    You're comparing games with extremely low populations compared to maplestory. Its like saying a game with 1000 players will have more hackers then a game with 100 players. Its likely to have more hackers yes.

    oh yeah and they made it so you have to pay like $1000 worth of NX to even have a chance at a lot of the bosses
    False.

    tl;dr don't take this guys word, he is just a single person with a vendetta that spews incorrect statements

    I bet this guy hasn't played at all recently, or in the past few years for that matter.

    I haven't played in the past week but I'm on the top 30 players in GMS.

    As for your answers saying that my statements are false (I'm gonna go backwards) -

    1. it's literally impossible to fight the end-game bosses unless you're not just a paying cust****, but a VERY VERY HIGH paying cust****. Tons and tons of potential cubes, buying the TIMED extra pendant slots, character slots, etc. You need to buy about $500+ worth of Cash shop miracle circulators to get your inner potential to Legendary... etc., This is just stuff to PARTICIPATE in end game. Not sure why you're just saying FALSE! without explaining why it's false. Good luck fighting Hard/Chaos anything without dropping a few thousand

    2. --Maple Story IS one of those games with an extremely low population--, first of all

    Also, when I say that has more hackers than a random shooting game or GunZ, etc., I'm talking % wise.

    3. You do get put back on the rankings now after a botting or hacking ban actually

    4. Actually they have had several Second Chance events where they unbanned all the perm banned hackers, not sure why you'd say it's false.

    btw if you don't believe that I'm a top player in the GMS rankings I will go on and whisper you because * I LOVE OnRPG!!! * but honestly it's not something to brag about, all your stats & skills cap at 200 and it's a pointless achievement

    1. Indeed for end-game bosses its difficult especially them constantly releasing things that can push your stats harder at a cost, but you can handle most of the regular ones just fine.

    2. Spread thinly across servers, but has more active players then the average game.

    3. Yes you're correct, I just looked up some random characters I knew were banned 100%.

    yep, maplestory is rather pointless once you hit a certain threshold ill agree. you can still get everything provided you have time to grind for mesos or specific items, but no one has that kind of time anyways

    However, you can still enjoy the game for a period of time as a returnee or new player.

    I agree and for someone like the dude I Was replying to, he'll definitely have a lot of fun - for a while. Until you run into these kinds of issues. Hackers who would want to do you harm, progression blocks that demand you to empty your wallet & go into debt to play a 2d free MMORPG, and other such nonsense. God forbid you need to contact Nexon America for some reason.

    It's really strange because you hear these rumors of Nexon America being bad but you don't really acknowledge it until it happens to you specifically. I mean their updates are still pretty frequent, they have nice looking home pages, everything looks squeaky from the outside, but as soon as you have a problem that requires cust**** support...God help you....you'll be waiting years, dealing with GMs who can't speak English/don't even know what department they're working for/will just close your ticket or hang up your chat if they don't "feel like" dealing with you. It's just offensively bad.

    Honestly I liked it more from when Wizet handled Maplestory, that was when it was at its peak. Even when hackers were running amok, GMs were plentiful and actively communicated with its players. Support was good and events were plentiful.

    Lol, thanks for the concern. I used to play, I played beta and for years after. I don't even understand the new crap going on. I just like farming for my new equips and grinding a few levels.

    Well my main server is GAZED , I do have chars in scania,bera,broa,khani though but I barely play them all my link skills/card effects are in GAZED. I guess I can hop on scania though for the 27th or if someone wants me to come play with them. I don't really know anyone outside GAZED.

    back in the day when leveling actually felt accomplishment

    really sucks that they killed the grind, i loved grinding with my friends and also doing party quests

    i really loved completing the quests in ludibrium and that alien map because it felt like there was a lore in it.

    Very nicely done Oisterboy

    It'll be a fun day on the 27th and I'm sure you'll be able to meet some new people for some fun Chaoscauser

    Ryukiri, I know what you mean. It used to be so much of fun back in the day and it was so easy to make friends too, I miss that.

    Only four more days, who's excited?
