Every town packed other than Maplestory Henesys
Every town packed other than Henesys. Perion Ch 1. was the Free Market before Free Market came out. There were actually areas to explore between each town in Victoria such as Pig Beach, and all the surrounding areas including Henesys Hunting Grounds. The EXP required to level was literally double what it is now, not to mention the only EXP upgrades were 2x coupons and Holy Symbol. And monsters gave less than half the EXP they did now. When only Wizet was in charge, an unfortunate situation they were in however cared more about the community than any GM system I’ve witnessed. A game where I would come home from school and talk to my friends, and train, and a goal would be set in mind. “Can I level today?” “I wonder if I can make 100k today?” Heh, even the hackers were nice. A challenge. Pure and simple. All challenges to the game of which would be swept away with time. Pre Big Bang was the start of it, as everyone says. However I believe it was the Tempest Update that officially stripped Maple of it’s last true challenge: Travel. Kaiser and Angelic Buster brought about Pantheon, as we all know: A portal to go wherever you want. I think the thing that saddens me most about the traveling is the fact that the Orbis boat (and all other boats) can still be used, despite it being cut in half the travel time. Yet no one uses them.
While Pantheon is out, I do not see the point in having these old travel methods, sad to say. It’s for sure that Nexon, while I thank it for the 11 years I’ve fully played this game (Beta), has officially made this game pay-to-win. I do not have regrets playing this game, nor am I complaining. In fact, I’ve even met my girlfriend who I am now with in real life due to this game. I live in New Hampshire and she lives in California. As funny as it is, we have MapleStory to thank for us. And we will be living together next year. I have met so many nice and kind people, the friends that I’ve made are people that I could never replace with people I know in my real life. This game has given me a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience of which I’m grateful. I hope in honor of our old version that the game of course does bring back some old maps and removes functions such as Pantheon and Event Hall, forcing people to collide in a positive arrangement and create friends, just like the old days. I truly hope this happens, but beggars can’t be choosers. So I digress, thank you Nexon, and thank you to the friends I’ve made, and the friends that are no longer with me.
