I'm coming back to Maplestory again and didn't want to go back to reboot, I want to be able to trade, and fund low level characters again. I've noticed that there are botters/hackers everywhere, All the theme dungeons I've gone to have been filled with them, jump around to different channels and 70% of them are occupied by them. I went to spiders and after some hopping found an empty channel long enough to find one familiar card before a hacker started sucking all the mobs and stole my map. I'm not working my way through Temple of Time and I keep seeing them blinking around, though these ones don't seem to attack while other players are around.
Is this normal or is it just aggravated by the Tera burning event? Would switching over to one of the other "normal" servers be an option here or is it just as bad on them?
