Official read on the website here.

 

Can you guys believe Maplestory is already 8 years old?

 

At what year did you come in? I've been there since beta so it's been really fun seeing all the changes that have happened.

 

Nexon has a bad rep from the past, but I've been really excited for a lot of their stuff within the last year or so and it's pretty much brought me back (at least part time as time allows).

 

So this patch!

 

Love the maple gear this year! I still have my complete collection from last year and wear most of it since the set bonuses are just too pro for other gear to replace for me yet. I'm excited to see how much better this year's is (hoping it is anyway).

 

Main problem: I play so many friggin characters right now I may lost out on a social life for a bit. D=

I came in around November 2006. Took me two weeks just to get to level 30. Page with something like 9 int and 6 luk because it was as close as I could get to pure warrior stats with the old Dice Roll.

Oh man, the old dice rolling...that drove me nuts! I was glad when they did away with it, lol.

 

My first (technically second but my first first was like a level 8 magician on an account I forgot about long ago) was a Fighter (Axe to be unique!) and she is still in her 60s, never went far haha.

 

Kind of tempted to pull her out again :)

Started in Novenber 2006 as well. Damn turkeys.

Reached the end of the Temple of Time and deleted on Christmas 2012 at 155.

 

There was nobody I knew left on Windia, and I finally finished the last of my old ambitions.

I had also been broken into in July, and I'd basically had enough of Nexon before that.

I started in around September 2005, didn't have my own computer until summer the year after though  :P 


It's strange to think that I've been playing for so long... the game has come a very long way indeed. I do miss how MapleStory used to be, and it's a totally different game now but I just can't shake the habit. I'm starting university in 4 months though so perhaps this summer will be my last. 

 

I wish I still had all my old screenshots. When I stopped playing for my last year of high school I deleted everything MapleStory related on my old external hard drive. Would have been nice to look at them again.

@Lugin Most of the people I used to play on Windia have left as well. Right now the only 'oldie' is my husband, but members of a cult I am in on Subeta have joined with me and we've met some new people along the way. I don't really go out of my way to introduce myself though so that is detrimental in regards to meeting new people. :P I mostly stick to myself and quest or train. I've had issues with Nexon as well, but I go back and forth on that.

 

@Mazz I hear you! I used to take screenshots like crazy...seriously has at least one thousand of them then my computer died and I lost them ALL. After that I only began taking them as I levelled or during special events and even then...they come and go since I tend to delete/reinstall maplestory every few months or so, haha. I don't play it hardcore at all, but during special events I pop in to check things out and sometimes float around longer. I like seeing actual progress on my Bishop and I've had fun with some of the newer classes. I am trying my best to avoid levelling them up too much though since I REALLY want to get at least one character to 200...primarily my Bishop. I bought a perm teleport rock on her too so I don't want to use another character yet for that reason as well. xD

 

I am sad they separated the cash shops between classes...that is one thing which really bugs me. :( So as a result I only buy NX pertaining to keeping my pet(s) alive and my potion pots active. Saves me from having to buy new outfits etc on every character.

I've been playing pretty actively lately, mostly because I've only been able to find a part time job so I have a lot of free time, and I'm not in school. I'm impressed with the events for the anniversary! I especially love the 8th Anniversary equips, they're really good for secondary/lower level characters :) Thankfully it doesn't take too much time to get to 200 now, if you can be online to train during the 2x events (which annoyingly for me are usually on Friday/Saturday at 10pm-midnight, so I'm often not home) it'll fly past, especially with a 2x EXP card :P

 

I agree 100% with the shared Cash Shop inventory. Japan MS has a linked Cash inventory I believe, which seems to work fine for them, but sadly we're still stuck with class specific ones. I'd love to be able to transfer some of the NX items from my Explorer (Shadower) inventory to my Dual Blade. I have one of the really cool permanent name tag rings (Ink Wash I think it's called) and it sucks that it's just going to waste :(

A thousand? Please, I think I have like 6 thousand?

 

Pretty sure I have some incriminating stuff for people on bera, if I look closely enough...

@Theshinji The 1,000 were from roughly 6 months of playing and then I lost them. So imagine after 8 years what I would have had, haha! 

 

@Mazz Yeah, I am very happy with the equips. I haven't opened my boxes yet though since I want to wait until the Empress items come from the boxes. I need new gear badly. I've been basically using last year's maple items, hehe.
