I've been playing this game on and off for about a decade now and I just have to know if anyone else is in the same boat. Are there any other 20-something's out there that are playing because they've also lost control of their life? Am I just a creep playing an online game with a bunch of twelve year olds?

Please tell me what you think, I need to know if it's time to just let it go or if I'm doing a totally healthy and normal thing like "surrounding myself with an online community of my peers"? :#

    I'm 47. So I guess I'm probably one of the oldest active Maple players.

    I don't think I've met anyone under 18 on Maple in a long time.
    I'm sure that the vast majority of Maplers are in their 20's.

    ^Agreed, especially looking at how some people throw around money/nx.
    Started playing on KMS probably around the time GMS came out. Been on and off. Usually come back whenever there's a major update (like the Override).

    I'm almost 25 and still play a little in my free time, since being at this age it is sometimes hard to play duo life.
    But to be honest i didnt see any 12years old people in ages, maybe in Luna we are just a bunch of old players. :D

    Started playing maple and started posting on the old forums when I was 14.

    Now I'm 18 and I feel old as hell.

    20 yrs here, I've been playing since 2012, I can't say I have the knowledge of a veteran, but I've seen my fair share of updates change things drastically since then.

    I've been playing for at least 10yrs and I'm 53. My husband also plays and he's 63 so old is a state of mind, we're seasoned vets and fine like wine, lol.
