Hi Maplers!

For those who haven't heard, Nexon America will be hosting an event in April centered around MapleStory. We're looking forward to meeting hundreds of you guys and we have a lot of activities planned for this one day event!

Check out the details on our main website and don't forget to send in an application if you're interested:

Feel free to discuss here and I'll try my best to go through and answer questions that I can.

    Hi Arwoo!!

    Are you able to disclose the capacity for the event? How many people will be accepted to come?

    Can we submit more than one artwork in our applications? Or are we limited to one?

    Questions from my Father:
    Where in LA is this taking place?
    When do we need to be there?

    And hopefully we get to meet that cutie Min Kim.

    Hi Ludus! We're looking at potentially inviting around 400 from those that apply.
    Can we submit more than one artwork in our applications? Or are we limited to one?

    You're more than welcomed to submit more than one!

    The exact location will be delivered to those that are selected from the applications. This will also include the details such as when the doors will be open.
    Hopefully, the convention center, I live near it.

    And hopefully we get to meet that cutie Min Kim.

    I'm hoping to have everyone get the chance to meet the devs outside of the Q&A, but we'll see!

    Well then... I'll see about repairing, rebuilding, and refreshing my costume I wore at Anime LA and bringing it with me!

    Y.K.

    I was among those falsely banned since January. Activity seems to be one of the criteria so will this adversely affect me?

    If you were falsely banned and released then that should have no effect on your application.
    Activity is also not a determining factor as we'd like to invite both existing fans and our fans of the past!

    Also, I was updated that we'd be inviting more along the lines of 450 Maplers.

    I hope whoever goes to the Q&A session has their questions prepared and written down ahead of time. Come up with 5 or 6 questions and then cross them off your list if someone else asks it, or ask for further clarification on topics where you think something was missed.

    Speak loudly and clearly.

    This one of the best opportunities to try and get answers. Even if we don't necessarily like the response it would still be somewhat preferable to the months of silence we normally get.

    What are the restrictions for my guest as a +1? I recall the application saying that +1's don't get the special gifts.
    Basically, what are the differences between the guest and the people directly invited- and what can they take part in?
