Servers are actually probably this dead because people can't even stay logged in you know or even log in.... but they do need merging like what KMS did. No world leaps should be allowed in my view. If the game functioned and nexon actively communicated with us ect , then the game population would rise up again and the need for world transfers/merges wouldn't need to happen.. it's just a waste of resources , those resources are better used fixing things. They should cancel it.
MapleStory isn't their only game.
There are enough folks on Mabinogi to pick up the slack that Maplers leave. They just need to release an anime collab outfit in gacha, and BAM! Whales ahoy.
They just need to fix bugs , optimize, start communicating, ban hackers plaguing specific areas(Better yet patch out those hacks which have not been patched out in a long time)start giving us what we want... oh wait I was dreaming again.
