      BB didn't ruin the game, it made it better.

      It actually made the game better in a lot of ways and brought a much needed fresh outlook to the game.

      One of the bad things it did do though was revamp the Victoria Island map. They streamlined and simplified everything. It was no longer a world to be explored, it became a series of linear, flat-platorm maps optimized for grinding and progressing. They also moved the travel station from Ellinia to the middle (where the dungeon entrance is), got rid of the boat and replaced it with either instant travel or these stupid planes you have to rent.

      Big Bang made the game objectively better.
      It was everything that came AFTER that ruined it.
      >Nexon claims it will no longer be pay-to-win
      >managerial paradigm shift shortly after
      >game becomes more and more pay-to-win with every patch

      Imagine right after bb (when Hero got Intrepid Slash) but with prebb maps.
      Soul overload. Hoping somewhat makes that in MSW.
      Personally I think like every class post Cygnus feel too different from the default classes so they shouldn't be included but battle mage can come.

        What was wrong with Wild Hunter?

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          I said "different," not wrong.
          Bam is pretty close in gameplay with the explorers while Aran, Evan, DB, Wild Hunter and Mech all have their own unique systems that felt experimental for the time. Nothing wrong with this, but if we're going for the classic style I just think it's offputting to have like 15 classes who are pretty close in style then have like 2 or 3 who play completely different.

    Back in MapleStory's beta, I remember doing this shit for hours in Perion or Henesys or Kerning. I remember the autoclicker spam required to get into party quests. I remember how fricking long it took to grind. Being level 40 or 50 mean you were in the top 1%

    I didn't play very much when it went live, but I did get the name "Jesus", which I gave to an old in game friend, and I heard later that it was sold for $200, so you live and you learn I guess

      Dude, I was the fricking clicking boss, even when everyone else was using autoclickers.

      I used to get angry whispers because I would get my party in 4+ times in a row.

      I remember one time I was running a train on KPQ, at least 5 times in a row. We were losing a guy, though, and I sent one of my party members out to grab someone. Turns out the guy he grabbed was actually in another party and was tricking us into coming out without a full party.

      I got right back in on the next run, and his entire party defamed me the next time we came out.

      It was a fricking blast.

      I fricking remember this place, training with the yellow eyes, before it was way longer and took more time to go trough it because you didn't had the ability to flight trough the screen in seconds like you do now.
      Resting in the sauna, normal bathrobes were popular as frick so were the premium ones talking with other people, etc.
      Scared how big the place was, etc.

      Also the 100 floor towers when you had to go trough them instead paying 5k mesos to skip all the traveling, the path towards the mine from el nath was amazing, now is just linear climbing or use teleporters to teleporters, going deep and farming those fricking gold teeth, also the fricking zakum jump quest took me months.
      Glitching fishes in the top of the map, etc.

      Also the whole ludibrium clock tower was amazing.

      Everything pre-BB was really amazing to explore, they fricked up all the feelings the maps gave with BB. also removed most of the hidden streets and made them visible.

        Yeah, there aren't many maps off the beaten path. All of the areas in the game got significantly reduced to make travel time smaller.

        Crimsonwood Keep PQ was my favorite content they added to the game. My guild was one of the first to do runs and sell Marks of Naricain to the public. The PQ itself was fun and managing the bosses in the final stage was enjoyable.

            NTA but they streamlined the maps because 99.99999% of Maplestory players do NOT walk anywhere. They buy Hyper Teleport Stones since those can be picked up with reward points or meso which allows them to teleport anywhere they want.
            PIc related is how ALL maplestory maps look like now with their pathing. Notice the one main path with small branches sticking out. There is no more exploration.

          Nobody liked the platforming.
          And not a single boss pre big bang incorporated the movement/platforming. It was all a matter of "just have enough HP to tank bro", which prevented half the classes from ever taking on Horntail or Pink Bean without either overleveling or abusing exploits requiring real, actual cash, and a lot of it. The redesign was fine, you just hate it because it's different. It's objectively less tedious to get around, especially for lower mobility classes (before ever single class ended up getting flash jump).
          Fricking up the boats was a mistake, I'll give you that.

      The only "bad" thing it did was revamp Victoria Island by removing a few maps that were only used as AFK spots by people who never left the island to explore other continents (i.e. henehoes)

    I tried playing Maple again when Demon slayer dude came out.
    Holy shit that was some broken shit. What even happened to the class system? They want full moronic with all those named hero classes and shit.
    Also the map design is shit now in the name of streamlining, the shit killing MMOs.
    Also they removed HHG1, and that us a fricking criminal offense.
    Aran is pretty fun though I'll admit, his combo mechanic should be how all melee classes work.

      There was just something special about seeing higher levelled characters showing off/chilling there and seeing what you could be when you were a newbie

      and going there to flaunt your dick when you reached a high level.

            Obviously people took the chance and made prebb servers with it, although a bit jank in terms of UI and updates.
            You can still play the Korean one with a vpn, but I think most are blocked because you need to verify now. When I played it the gameplay itself was pretty close.
            Also iirc the prebb servers are now even more popular than the retail Maplestory in Korea which I thought was funny.

        Nexon rescued mabinogi out the market crash after hackers ruined it IIRC, but like always it was too late.

        Im still angry how they killed combat arms too.
        >Lets remove all the ways to become p2w
        >Lets give the players permanent weapons for free and the ability to get every paid weapon for ingame currency for any duration they want!
        They removed everything, every single way that a penny affected your gameplay, and ofcourse people who spent $1000 every week on the game got pissed as frick because all they paid for years was worth nothing now and quit, game literally died and closed in months because they forgot that they had to make money somehow.

          That sucks

          The game really got as close as I've ever seen to being that mmo that sucks you in and feels like a world.
          The combat was unique and attacks had weight to them
          and you could do so much different shit

          I still remember shortly after it released, doing ciar dungeon runs and having everyone sit down around a fire infront of the boss door while people chatted, shared food, played shit on musical instruments, bandaged each other, and just talked.

          That was all I ever wanted from an mmo.

          Then once ready we would go in and get murdered horribly by a golem and some skeletons.

They did all these secretely and no one knew because the rates were only disclosed after a major scandal that happened recently. After disclosing the rate as 1% the same director then said he will increase the rate to to 1.2% then eventually to 1.4% which people cheered for because they didn't know anything

      I remember the guild leader was called SwiftTachi and he typed like a moron. I was still an impressionable noob moron though and it felt really cool being in a guild with all these high levels.
      Then one day, this guild leader SwiftTachi tells me to come to the free market and asks me to give him 1.5m as guild taxes. Not only that but he asks that I drop it in 50k bags to avoid the trade tax. I actually fricking did it because I was moronic and thought this was normal for guilds for some reason. Literally one of the stupidest things I have ever done in my life.

I think that's why he made a black character. I don't remember him ever getting past level 30 so I guess he must've started playing the game again at some point.

    Maple had such a broken fricking economy.

    Maple didnt even have an item that could act as a substitute currency like PSO with Photon Drops.
    Why dont MMOs do shit like PDs on purpose? It worked so fricking well. Literally everyone has the same chance of finding them regardless of level, they drop one at a time so even one drop has value, and they have a in game use people want that consumes them keeping the number of them on the market down.

      Modern Maplestory has too much shit, and a lot of it has been made obsolete by powercreep anyway. Too many classes, all with the same linear progression, and they all feel samey. Back in the old days, being a warrior or a mage actually meant something.

      there's now pets with item vac, which having one is practically mandatory if you want to farm moronic amounts of meso while grinding
      in reality you can get by just on boss crystals and maple tour for meso and just save while using normal pets just fine

        That figures, I sorta recall them changing the items that pets needed into skills they had, it's been a few years since I've last logged in, I think back in 2018 or 2019 or so.

          i guess the bonus with vac pets is you dont need to buy skills for them

        The first few jump quests were really fun, things like Shumi's Lost Coin and the first Sleepywood JQ
        Then you get to later JQs like Ninja Castle and it's just fricking awful because it comes down to knowing exactly how to utilize hit knockback and i-frames and even then it still feels random because the client is so fricking janky
        Zakum was pretty piss easy though, sure the first time you do it it's gonna make you rage but eventually you realize ZJQ is one of the easier ones, and you only needed to do it once

    Maplestory is way better now than it was back then.
    The problem with "modern Maplestory" is simple: Legacy quests and content confuse new players.
    EVERYTHING that those crying for a "Classic Maplestory" server want is actually available later in the game (think level 235+). This is because the content focus has been shifting farther and farther, resulting in reaching level 200 becoming easier and easier JUST to get people to the content being focused.
    The only valid complaint is the flashiness of skills. Modern jobs are definitely unique, but it's just far too much going on.

        I started then stopped playing Reboot after a few months in 2018 in the Gankervg/ guild Page10(now called Archived I think).
        Got to around level 221 but then it hit me that this game was literally designed to trap you into logging in every day to complete your dailies and everything, and make it feel like you wasted a day if you didn't. If you ever wanted to take a break for a few days, you couldn't, because that's delaying the completion of your absolab set for a few more days. At some point you just gotta clear your mind, realize it's all pointless and break free from the mind control spell.

    Why were korean games from the early to mid 2000s so soulful? Why were they all hacked to shit? Did koreans just cannot into security?

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      While North Korea is a communist dystopia, South Korea is a capitalist one unironically. Shit is ingrained in their culture, they view all of their games as "investments" which is why P2W is so obscene over there and why the games eventually lost all their soul.

      As for cybersecurity, well that somewhat ties in with the above. You could make quite a bit of money hacking/selling hacks.

    Pig Beach and Slime tree aint ever coming back. It takes a fricking week to get to 100. And hackers plauge every fricking LHC in every server and nobody gives a frick. All you have to do is have NX or mesos to pay off hackers to leech and you're golden.

            I'm sure you can find someone else IRL no problem. For me, it's actually harder to meet women online, there are way too many simps online and face to face you instead hold her entire attention when interacting.

                But I never said I felt the need to play. It's just that the only thing that "requires" playing daily are the "dailies" which basically take minutes to do. They're not even that useful considering events can give you the same rewards months of dailies give in less than a week.
                Hopefully this cynical worldview you have improves and you learn how to enjoy things again anon. This can't be healthy for you.

                But I literally just said you don't need to, just that it's the only thing that would "require" you to play the game daily. With that lack of comprehension it's no wonder you hate games.

                Grinding mobs is still king. Reboot has the bonus of 500% meso base and 5x boss crystal price. It beats out having a market and trading fast.

    Im currently playing and leveling an Aran on reboot, currently 191 and still in level 130 set armor with SW weapon and some boos accessories. Should i keep going?

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Aran is one of the best low-legion jobs to play since it has high damage and survivability. If you like the playstyle then keep at it until 210. If you don't, then just drop it now and raise another job.
      The event going on currently is one of the best for leveling so you can try out different jobs to find out one you like, and the more you level up the stronger everyone becomes thanks to legion grindan.

        i like Aran, fun command skills and nice survivability/damage. I did look at the legion stuff and level an Evan as well to 140 for the free mana on hit... How impactful is legion shit?

          >How impactful is legion shit?
          It's both the most important thing on your account and also something you shouldn't really rush. It'll be one of the largest sources of damage you'll get and also make every subsequent character you level easier to play, but you shouldn't grind it out.
          Instead just focus on a main and then whenever you get a burn, get a new character to 141 and park their ass there. Then, whenever an event pops up, have your 141 characters gorge on the inevitable wave of bonk pots you'll get to get them to 200.

    Current Maplestory is the most fun it's ever been if you're into grindy arpg but it's really sad that can't even bring up the game since there's a chance the game might be killed for literally no reason.
    Personally I think there's 70%-80% chance it'll be fine but still absurd. I heard there's gonna be a roadmap this week so hoping for a good news.
    Nevertheless to say I hate the direction of 6th job being another dumb grindfest and the new kns director seems absolutely shameless to drain the wallet of any remaining mushroom devotees. Hopefully gms just doesn't bring even more p2w garbage since $15 every week and $100 each pass season is pathetic even for this game.

        Besides the game really is fun but as always it's the garbage direction that hurts it massively. It's just that they do make good changes that make the game better then proceed to add new changes that actively make it worse, sometimes even conflicting with what they were trying to improve in the first place

          watch it, unlike most of the posers in this thread, I actually played maplestory up to endgame (twice). I know what I am talking about. I can have fun while seeing the negatives, but as you said, they keep doing it and never improve, and for how long I was playing, I just couldn't take it anymore. The garbage direction is something that will never change, despite the great potential it had, and arguable still has.

            The game does get better overall though. Does the moronic and greedy shit Nexon do leave a shit taste in your mouth? Yes, but at the same time you can't deny thay the game has been steadily been improving since the flame scandal. Even in New Age with the massively flawed 6th job, the game has become much easier with the exp changes and 6th job powercreep.
            I absolutely despise how nexon treats the game like a cattle to be milked instead of a respectable game(unless another game-ending scandal #2148 happened and they need to please the players), but the game will still become better and more fun over time with the increased access and quantity of content, unless they judt decide to kill Heroic of course.

              I ain't coming back but if what you are saying is true, at least the game will be alive and fun for its new audience. I'm part of the oldgays, and for me personally, I just can't let go of pqs, exploration, and when damage wasn't everything. When that changes I'll take a look, but no farther than that. Unlike other oldgays though, I also think old maple kinda sucked, but it had the ability to be something greater. I just don't see it now, not for me.

      Of course, this would also require either revamping all of the old party quests or making entirely new ones.
