Just curious since the game is pretty old now, but I first made my account in 2008, and made my first character a Magician. What year did everyone else start playing?

    Either late 2005, or early 2006. Made a ton of characters.

    EDIT:Nope. Cause when I joined, Thieves were released. So... maybe in early 2006? 2005 might have been Maple's beta. And I never got near the beta.

    2012, after Big Bang happened. I never got to see why a lot of people are obsessed with pre-BB Maple.

    But Big Bang happened in 2010...

    Also I started in 2008, but stopped playing for a while until May-ish 2010.

    2008

    Made a warrior, messed it up by giving it "balanced" stats, gave up on it at level 17.
    Made another warrior, it's my main to this day.

    2005! My accounts kept getting haxed though (probably had to do with the internet cafe I'd play at...) Finally got a decent PC at home in '07 and made an account that DIDN'T get hacked as soon as I hit second job. '09-'10ish was my favorite era though.

    lol I did the same thing with my very first character. I had just come from RuneScape, where they sorta encourage you to be at least somewhat proficient in all three combat styles. I also didn't get my first job advancement til like lvl 12 cuz the game didn't explain what job advancements were at all to me.

    Early 2006. Quit around 2009/2010 for a longer period of time though, but still logged on once or twice a year. Came back in full force 2014 during the 9th anniversary.

    I started a bit before September 2005 (before the NPC Cody was a thing). I started off as a Warrior that got stuck in El Nath for a week as Lv.25.

    I made a new character that became a Magician and took the Fire/Poison Route. That was the start of my 5 year journey, with many different other side characters including my re-made Warrior that went Spearman.

    I eventually created a Dual Blade on it's release just before Big Bang and snagging a Time Traveler Medal and Permanent Lucky Visitor Boots. After that... this is where I am today.

    Started in 2009 or 2010... either way it was a few weeks before Aran came out, and that ended up being my main for the next few years until I quit.
    I came back for reboot though.

    Came to the game in 2013, I actually knew about it for a long time but just never played it up until that point. First made an Aran...forgot what server it was on and made a Kanna on Renegades and she eventually became my first level 100 character. Took quite a long hiatus from the game this year (around 3-4 months) before finally coming back Halloween and onwards. Also like Kami I'm glad to see people coming back to the game!

    started in 2003. Played beta version, even had this mark of the beta hat on my cleric. stopped playing in 2005? Then started back again in 2007 for another year and stopped a little before pirates class release.

    came back at again near end of 2015.

    the reason ppl miss pre-bigbang was because the game was still very party based then, like kerning, ludi pq and magatia pq. The PQs were a lot more rewarding than regular mobs grinding, so we would party together and end up being friends with other players.

    all other job classes were really sweet on cleric units because heal was spamable and apart from healing and buffs, the cleric/bishops had no other use due to shitty dmg.

    Wait a minute, there's no censor on the forums!? I am pretty sure there were in the older forums.
    NOTE:Mods don't like vulgar words. That's why I bypass the censor with accepted and non-offensive words. And so they can't hammer ban me... hahaha...ahahahah! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAhaHAhAHA! You can't do anything against me mods, for I am politically correct MUAHAHAHAHAhahahah!! *Gets banned*

    Originally started with my sister back in 2007, but we never left maple island. I returned back in 2012 and I mained aran. I got turned off by having to buy spellbooks in order to use some of my abilities, so i quit. I came back for kaiser, played around for a bit, left. Then I came back along with the release of zero, and ever since then I've played maple on and off. I've tried other games, but somehow this game keeps drawing me back.

    I've been playing on and off since the game was in beta, though I didn't own a beta account, I first played on a friend's beta account then created my own.

    i don't remember the exact year but i do remember the minor details.
    I joined during the last week of the 7th Anniversary. the first class i played was a dual blade that i named NikSephiroth (since I could use my minecraft name of KidSephiroth) i worked hard and got the class to level 80 without using RNJ and left for a year due to awful lag in rnj (legit crash level lag that the screen would freeze for 8 or more minutes before visuals would change) i managed to get my mighty dual blade to 130. and trying to do rnj (while the cap was still high) i got the same issue i had that long year. i had made so much on the character i got to the sengoku temple before the update i even found it was either the recipe or a drooped Infinite throwing knives. but i wanted to get the class to at least 150 but it wouldn't happen i had to delete everything and start over. now i'm more experienced and i plan on never trying the dual blade class unless its revamped to be less squishy.
