Just thought I noticed something, probably very trivial and obvious, perhaps even counts as toxic to the developers or admins...
What's (the point of) Your Maplestory?
It really is just advertising the game for new players or show the game as much enticing as possible to anyone reading...
the point is then, of course, to ONLY promote the positive things player felt or experienced... that is really horrible in my opinion...
Look, if you have a hard time admitting to the fault or issue inside the game that is fine, but now you are giving false hope to the public...
I am not saying it is wrong or bad wanting the best (profit) out of your business, but please be more honest and considerate (??)

What I see coming is that new players will be attracted into the game only to find out annoyance here and there as they play...
I am not saying Nexon should take down the posts, but I'd rather be reading posts that are more balanced in their feedback on the game...
It is rather just stupid to be reading, or even just expecting to read, stuffs that put NOTHING BUT glory on a game that has its issues...
Issues that others have brought up again and again as they compare the old times to the present times, I won't give examples here to trigger people lol

Just my 2 cents, Nexon, and Maplestory developers. Thanks.

I am sure some people will still rage (be triggered) on this topic, I am still going to say this beforehand, please don't rage, be and speak civilized,
and most importantly, please do not rant but be as much constructive in your response as possible. Much appreciated.

last edit. sorry, I think this would qualify as feedback/ suggestion, please move it there for me if deemed necessary, my bad, thanks!!

    You can't expect a company to promote the negative aspects of their product, can you? That being said I've skimmed a couple of them and literally have never heard of these people.

    My aim in this game is to be the number 1 of my class in my server, luckily i play a class that isnt very common so im almost there alrdy, what motivates me is my guildmates, who are some of the stronguest if not the stronguest people in the server i play and seeing other people of my same job trying to surpass me xD.

    Regarding what you said, thinking that a company would promote their mistakes is plain nonsense. Its a company, ergo they need to make money off the product they advertise, if they advertise the bad things, it wont attract anyone into the game , its just common sense man.

    Like i always say, people tend to forget that Maplestory is run by a company, which means they need to earn profit off it, otherwise the game wouldnt exist.

    I had someone send me one to fill out and I am still considering it. I mean the whole point of it is to tell people stories and bring other people's experiences to light. I say I had both bad and good experiences with the game.

    But the thing is if it should have a purpose I feel unity should be the main focus which isn't the case as a lot of people aren't accepted. But first and foremost I think ms1 should focus on how they treat people, I feel even though ms2 ended early they had a good community and treated people really well.

    But that's my take on it no one has to agree.

    It's mainly just a community spotlight! It doesn't take our community team more than a few hours of work to compile each monthly edition and write up and I think it's a nice digest to read for our players who regularly check the website.

    The same way we provide a spotlight monthly to appreciate fan art, but in this case it's the individual players themselves.

    Maplestory used to be a fun game I used to enjoy with my friends. Now Maplestory is just a place to ponder about my futile existence and to constantly blame myself for my mistakes instead of taking the cowardly way out or snapping.

    Dayum bro thats rough, I say seek counseling talking about it with someone is always helpful ;). But maple is what you make it and what you put in is what you get.

    I say maybe change your outlook and be a voice. Maybe become a revolutionary. Be the change bro ;)
