    Hey, nice to meet you, i was wondering who that kthxbyenao on reddit with a big smile was. I'm Galathea from maple europe, 204 merc playing maple since 2007, used to main a paladin before bigbang, "souleater142". I'm from the european guild Aeon.
    Nice to see you are an esports fan, Starcraft is indeed a difficult , yet passionating game. I have played for a team and travelled to events between 2013-2015 and it was so exciting, I am a french protoss player named "NalrA" ( was trying to be the successor of kang min well, I tried )
    The whole guild is happy to be there, see everyone soon on the forums.

    Hey there!

    Started playing Maplestory a long time ago. The time where the only classes were the regular adventurers, not even including the pirate class (don't know when that was). The time where it took me months to get to lvl 30 on my bowman and where people who could slay the Balrogs on the ship to Orbis were heroes.

    I'm a 21 year-old male born and raised in The Netherlands.

    Favorite class? Dunno, I always change my mind about this, but my highest leveled are Demon Slayer and Wild Hunter.

    Other games that I like? I've always been a huge fan of Rollercoaster Tycoon and Age of Empires. And finally after 12 years, a true sequal to RCT has arrived, Planet Coaster! I've also been playing League of Legends for the past 5 years and I'm currently Platinum 1. Also been spending quite some hours on Overwatch since it got released. Oh forget to mention, Pokemon! Getting Pokemon Sun/Moon on the first day of release, which is in 2 weeks.

    I'm looking very much forward to finally be playing GMS again (My first ever account was on GMS, but I lost it unfortunately). See you soon, only a few hours left!

    Hey, thanks for the warm welcome :-)

    Where should I start. Well my name is Xu and I am from the Netherlands and currently 19 years old (turning 20, 30 november). Will be most likely go on Khaini since a lot of my friends are playing on that server and I shall be a mercedes :)

    Hello fellow Europeans and welcome (back) to global maple. Sad to hear about your buddylists and guilds being wiped, truly, but hopefully it won't take too long to rebuild.

    Hello all!

    I'm Emma-Lina (Emma for short), aka tinypaws the lvl222 blaze wizard from (former) EMS Demethos.
    20 years old, swedish, played maple since before EMS was even released and well, now we're back to GMS again which i'm excited about!
    I'm also very happy about the Kradia+Demethos = Luna merge seeing as i come from a server that housed about a handful of people and a completely empty free market (as in, we were lucky if there was a single shop up). It'll be fun to actually meet some people again!

    Hey everyone,
    I'm Kas or Kassy if you prefer. I'm a 26 year old Brit. I've been playing Kradia EMS since it went into beta in 2006 and also played global for about a year before that. Windia was my eventual home on GMS(anyone remember Pemmican from there? I miss the guy xD). I play two mains on EMS, a bishop, Kasumarae, and a hero named Kassy and far too many mules. I usually stick out like a sore thumb due to my lurking set in game so feel free to give me a poke. I'm a part of the Labyrinth alliance currently and was in a guild called Seasons many years ago.
    Can't wait to see some new faces in the Luna community when the servers are up.

    Hey everyone!

    I used to play EMS since around 2011, quitted and restarted many times.
    I'm gonna try to come back and play on the Reboot server, it sounds very appealing!

    A little about myself:
    My name is Mauro (pronounced maw-ro) and I am 17 years old, living in Belgium.
    Currently I'm studying Digital Arts & Entertainment (Game design basically).

    I don't know what else to say, but thank you Nexon for deciding to merge EMS and GMS!
