  • Content or Destruction

    Bosses are very entertaining, the new bosses mechanics makes it really nice,lucid,will, verus hilla darknell, the huge stone and BM are all very challenging , requires a party of 6 on discord to talk and are fun.
    Events some are fun,like dmt which motivates me to grind and farm hose mesos as well as sf events, coin farming is ok, a bit slow these days but fine.
    My issue is with the other events, i barelly do them because dailies and coin capping takes all my time and energy.
    After doing dailies on 2 characters and coin farming on 2 characters minimun i feel so tired that i dont feel like playing anymore so i just afk for relay.
    Btw i have to admit that new maple relay is awesome, lots of reward points to get fury totems and u only need to stay logged in. Old relay was a huge pain and i didnt bother at all, having all those requirements to simply claim the daily boxes omg... . Im really happy they changed it.

  • Watch me predict the holiday patch notes

    Coin shop is good this year, we just need more restocked nodes and symbols that plus a few other events like capping coins and some storyline is fine to me.
    What else do u want? Holidays are a ver bussy time both for students cuz they have exams after and for ppl with a job that it usually increases and its a time to br eith familly and such , so u dont have much time left to play maplestory.
    To me im fine with just a few events and game improvements and some dmt cube sale or 2x meso and exp.

  • Is Maplestory ever going to get optimized?

    I just wanted to put that question out there. Optimization is key in any good game, even someone who doesn't understand a thing about technology or programming would agree that fast + efficient = good. Yet, I'm not seeing a single thing about Maplestory done right in terms of performance. I just don't get it, do the developers even care? I don't have the greatest PC system, but it IS capable of running 3D games perfectly fine.

    In case you didn't realize (sarcasm), Maplestory is a 2D game. Not a single bit of 3D modeling involved in the gameplay. It's completely flat. You can pretty much make an exact copy of Maplestory on C#. It'll be a large file, but I'm pretty sure it's completely doable. I just find it completely ridiculous that this game has hardly changed in the performance department for how old it is. They should be releasing patches every week, at the least, in order to ensure optimal performance. They might do some bug fixes, or release new characters, or make new maps- but honestly, as a player, I WANT OPTIMIZATION. I would rather they do that than anything else.

    It's incredibly frustrating when you buy a new keyboard because you thought that your old one had broken when some of your key presses weren't registering at a very frequent rate- only to realize that it's just because of garbage programming. There is nothing more frustrating than dying to mobs 10+ levels below you just because your character wasn't responding for however many seconds it took for you to run out of potions and then watch your health bar slowly chip away until it hits 0. By "you" I mean "me."

    I entirely believe that Maplestory is a decent game (performance aside) because it's quite unique. I think that if Maplestory started small advertisements on Youtube or some sort of social media platform, they'd easily rake in a few thousand new players. BUT. If that's every going to happen, they've first got to fix their bloody code. No new player is going to want to play a wreck of a game like this. Why would they? There's tons of other games out there that have the latest and greatest in terms of tech and software. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Maplestory needs 4k graphics- in fact, I'd rather they kept it the way it looks now. It's a part of Maplestory's appeal and I like it. BUTT. They need to optimize, like seriously optimize. Right now, the game rolls just about as smoothly as a cube downhill. It's terrible. Please, for the love of God and ice cream, fix the game.

    Funny thing is i can run a much more complex 3d game like rainbow 6 but everytime i play kanna i constantly get lag spikes that the anti hack system thinks its a hack and disconnects me , which is super annoying specially when ure using exp/meso/item drop coupons.
    Also i constantly get lag spikes and my screen gets frozen for a few seconds for up to a minute that ive never had when playing games like world of warcraft, rainbow 6 or guild wars.
