    Hey guys, do you play MapleStory?I find this game very addicting and fun. I had a level 120 Bishop but for some reason MS says it does not exist 5 years later. Oh well.

    My new main is a level 46 Ice/Lightning mage, and seriously i hate my decision choosing to be one.
    I got a level 41 Demon Slayer fun too..





    I'm just wondering, what levels of accounts do you guys have?


    Level 46 = DoctorNewbie (Bera)
    Level 82 = RejectaCouch (Bera)

    No, I do not, nor does anyone I know. The game is terrible, in every regard. Graphics, gameplay, "story", technical problems, animations, etc. Ontop of that, it's nothing more than a grindfest.

    Anyone that plays World of Warcraft and/or Maplestory so passionately is just someone that doesn't know that there are MUCH MUCH MUCH better mmorpg's out there, in literally every single term a game can be better. If you like action side-scroller RPG's, that's fine, there's plenty other and better MMO's of that style too.

    @basher11 you mean that flash game if so then yea I've played a little and @Xuphor yes there is better games but the community of MS is what drew me into the game in the first place not the graphics or animations, yes there is alot of updates and it's a pain to wait for it to update but it's still a fun game to play once in a while especially with some friends.

    PS @xAC3L3G3NDx hope to see ya online

    It was alright like 8 years ago. I didn't know people still played it today, but it is free so I can see the attraction.

    Not really, the graphics are good and also it improved so much with now a "story". Plus technical problems? What problems? No problem w me. If you have hispeed internet (Fast) its gonna run good for you.



    People In Scania are so mean. They only love people for NX.

    I used to played that game a few years ago, but I quited. Due to it forcing you you to like literally spam only one skill for dozens of levels, the repetitiveness, boring events, and also hardcore grinding.

    I heard it change everything about it, but I still found it boring after a few tries. The community from a few years ago was WAY better than the community now. And the community from a few years ago was only so-so to begin with.

    Edit: Used to have a level 76 pirate, you know the one who uses his fist.

    I randomly wander back to MS every now and again. It's just fun for a non-typical breather.
    120 mercedes, 71ish Crusader, 40 ish Dual Blade. Buncha other crap I dabbled with and don't remember.
    Mercedes quickly and easily became my favorite class. They're so damn fun to play.

    The graphics are fine. It has its own style, and follows it quite nicely.
    The gameplay is entirely unique and any MMO to try mimic it has failed miserably
    MMOs don't have story
    There aren't any more technical problems than a typical MMO.
    Animations are fine
    Grinding was eliminated like 2-3 years ago. Getting to 120 takes a week. Getting 121-200 is more grindy, though. Still doesn't take that long.

    Weren't you the person going to be playing Aion? I can't remember, but if you were, your opinion is completely invalid when trying to diss another MMO.

    I've got a few friends and myself that are at all stages of the game (low level, mid level and high level characters). In Scania.

    But I've reached the point where I've lost any and all interest in MS. And that was before they dropped the experience curve to make it much easier to level.

    You're wrong about MMOs not having story. The bad ones don't. The good ones do. Granted the story usually just involves a set of quests you have to complete in order, but it adds a lot of fun to a game and makes it less about grinding and fetch quests.

    MMOs have story the same way those goosebump books had gameplay.
    No MMO to date has had a good story, thus I disregard them as having any.

    I liked the story for Guild Wars. I refute your claim!

    I'm sure any LotR fan would enjoy the story in Lord of the Rings Online, as it's parallel to the storyline in the books and you get to do quests with/for the main characters from the books. It also seems like they put a lot of work into the storyline in order to make it tie in with the storyline in the books well.

    One question though. What is the red arrow that faces down, and what is the blue arrow that faces up?
