    Just when we got more news about Dead Space 3 and Army of Two 3 from that other document. Well I suppose Nexon might make them a better company or worse.....

    Dear God no....

    I played Maplestory for almost 5 years, and watched Nexon turn the game into an all-out cashgrab. This was all while hackers ran rampant and completely unchecked throughout the game. Add to this the fact that their customer support is entirely non-existant, and you have a recipe for a horrible game.

    I have no love for EA, but if there was ever a company I could be sure I'd hate more, Nexon would be that company.

    This company has enough resources to acquire EA?

    Hey, if that's true, color me impressed.

    LAWL, if there is just one company that sucks worse than EA, it's Nexon. This would be like A turd swallowing a bigger turd.

    Nexon can afford to buy EA? That would be amazing. But I couldn't care less whether Nexon buys EA or not.

    I read the title and couldn't contain my laughter.

    Edit - I'm calling bullshit on this one.

    Not true, nexon support is very good if you place your complaint in the right place. Like if something would normally fall under game glitches it would actually go under customer assistance and not game help. They also check the forums a ton so posting there is also a decent way of getting your problem solved. Usually takes 2-5 days when posted at either place.

    -edit-
    seems everyone has had a horrible experience with nexon :wtf:;

    Maybe Nexon can buy EA, and they will both collapse under the weight of their own shittiness.

    Lolno.

    YEARS ago, I opened MapleStory one time, and upon logging in, was kicked form the game for "Use of hacking tools". What was the only unusual program I was running in the background? DVDDecrypter, ripping a DVD to my hard drive. I opened a support ticket, explaining my concerns of not wanting to get banned especially considering I had just put NX on my account and didn't want that to go to waste, not to mention that I wasn't even hacking. I literally got a "We'll look into it." and no further response.

    That is maple story everyone knows not to play that =o play vindictus, mabinogi, dungeon fighter, or something else. They haven't touched maple story in years, and they never plan on fixing anything inside it because of how broken it is (to many young idiots would cry CHANGE!! booooo). Any other game you will get help on though. :)

    I have a similar story.

    I was helping Chell try to get MapleStory working on the laptop at one point (she wasn't waiting for MapleStory DS to come out in the US, so she demanded to try it on the PC). The problem with it was that at the time, we had no idea how to map the controls to an Xbox 360 controller we borrowed. When we finally got everything set up and working, Chell was banned about 30 minutes in. She didn't get a reason. We email them and open a support ticket, trying to get an answer, and we finally see the equivalent of this: "We did not ban you at [the particular time and date that Chell was banned]. However, we did ban your account at [an hour after Chell was banned] because we found evidence that your account was being used to hack into other users' accounts. This ban will not expire and is non-negotiable."

    Emailing them further and explaining the situation caused them to give us the equivalent of "We'll look into it." Chell is STILL emailing them, trying to get her account unbanned, even though it's been at least a year and a half.

    Origin has better download speeds than Steam, AND uses less memory, Sure, why not.

    Anti EA fanboy gooo!!!.

    In all seriousness, Origin is fine.
