Nexon launcher is the worst launcher i've ever used, trying to play maple story 3 times and still gets crashing at the start ! And it's not the thing i'm getting in a week, it's happening EVERY SINGLE DAY ! Why we can't just open Maple Story without launcher ?
Another day: 1st time turning on maple: CRASH

    Another day: 1st time turning on maple: CRASH, THAT'S BULLSHIT

    Haha, welcome to MapleStory 2018.

    Every time I log into MapleStory, I always, always crash at least 1-2 times.

    Update after Update and game is getting unstable more ! I can bet that i'm not first person that is saying that nexon launcher is really bad and they still didn't do anything about it.

    The launcher shouldn't have any affect on the number of times you crash. I realize someone's going to say "you don't think it would but but but GameLauncher.exe didn't" but that's actually not true at all; unless the crash is occurring during the launcher there is no relation between the launcher and the game itself. I'll say that as someone who has basically 9/10ths of a degree in computer science; there shouldn't be a difference. The launcher is built to launch the game, in essence feeding a command into the command prompt to launch a new instance of the program. It does this all pretty and includes a lot of bells and whistles like options, automatic updates, and other such stuff common to game launchers, but the launch part is the same.
    Typically I'd also say that I can't replicate the issue, but I've found that unless the issue has specific steps to reproduce people simply reject this answer instead of clarifying anything. But for what it's worth, I cannot replicate the issue and have had no problems crashing when using the launcher.

    There are currently stability issues, however, which are affecting a number of players and include high latency and crashing. If you really believe it's the launcher causing these issues, there is an alternative via Steam, but as I stated, I cannot guarantee this will fix anything.
    These latency issues I can confirm, especially during peak hours, like when I crashed after getting 3/4ths of the way through Chaos Von Bon. Again, for whatever that's worth.

    You should be able to link your Steam account to your Nexon account, even if they use different emails. The Steam launcher should do so automatically if you try to launch through there.

    As far as why crashes are happening, I do not know. There are a variety of reasons why crashes occur.
    I'm just saying that as far as my experience working with various launchers and programs goes, if there was an issue with the launcher itself then the game likely wouldn't launch at all. If you're crashing during startup, my best guess is that the game is simply failing to connect to the server. Since I haven't experienced the issue, I can't offer any tips, but Nexon is aware of the various latency issues currently affecting the game.

    I (probably) can't play MS via steam cuz when i launch maple there is small window with loggin to nexon account, there is email already writing and i can't change it ! Even if that email wasn't a nexon account email.
    EDIT: i'm not fully sure about that email i will check it after maintence.

    For now, i'm playing via steam for like 3-4 days, and i have to say : Yes steam can crash but it's happening to me max. 2 times a day, nexon launcher could crash 2 times per hour so it's still better for me....
