I mean to be quite fair, Maplestory ~v.4 is a completely different game to the latest Maplestory patch

where it took months to get to second job, it took like a week to cap out at 200

I mean, it is part of cosmetics. If you've played original Maplestory, you shouldn't be surprised it's going to cost a little.

Bleh, I just can't get back into those games.

Here is just some notes on some things I've observed while playing so far. A little bit of the good and the bad.

Pros
1) Leveling up characters is actually pretty easy. Takes little to no effort, and makes it easy for the casual player.
2) Lots of party play is involved. This is kind of nice because it avoids the "ima solo all teh bosses with my range" play from Maplestory 1.
3) Guild system is pretty nice.
4) Premium membership does not give you a huge advantage over players who decide not to spend money.
5) Lots of free items and maple coins are given to you just for being logged in.

Cons
1) Camera angles - it would be nice if you could rotate the camera while bossing. Stationary view gets a little annoying at times.
2) 10 runs per day - this seems a little ridiculous for such and early start of the game. I feel like this number should be higher.

I've watched several videos and livestreams before deciding whether or not to drop the cash to play. So I have not played, but am familiar with the game.

I'm still tinkering on the idea if I really do like the game. That's why I'm giving it about a month and see where my head is at.

I've played normal MS1 since 04 - with that being said, I think I'm just burnt out with it. No matter what Nexon does with the game, it's still Maplestory 1 to me.

MS1 is a very burnoutable game, but always fun when I return to it.

Yeah it is.

But knowing it's Maplestory, I can't help but to purchase cosmetics.

Pretty hype about the Chaos Raids coming out soon~

I'm pretty much just waiting for it to get released at this point.

Anyone still playing? It's already changed a lot from when I started to subvert meso selling bots and I can't be entirely sure it's working. Kreij on NA East though, I pretty much just do instrument stuff now v:

Woah woah woah, wait; HOLD UP! There's a MS 2? I've been playing off and on since it was still a English Beta out of Korea. Been playing that game since probably before this game, or around the same time. I remember when Orbis and Ludibrim were new. Haha. I'm old... (I was there when players were grinding levels and mining stars at pig beach...using dex and skill builds.)

Is it any good? I was kinda turned off by MS, after some of the updates a long time ago. The last update when I was still a serious grinder and power leveler was when the pirates were new. Last time I started a new character it was the ninja with dual swords, nothing is like it used to be.

It's also comparatively dead now four months after opening to all players. I mostly play FFXIV now and it's worth it to pay for a game over hoping they balance memory leaks and fair fight (though to their credit they mostly did away with it now and nerfed all world bosses, where they didn't remove fair fight).

bleh, i wish i could have back the money I threw at this game for dumb ass cosmetics and the premium account. I maxed out so quickly and there was no end-game content other than to grind dungeons to enhant/combine equipment and try and get max attributes, which is a whole lot of RNG, which I was hoping the series would be getting away from. I ended up quitting cold turkey. My guild would pester me to come on for a while but I eventually just left the discord cause I didn't see myself playing it any longer.
