Pre Big Bang Server Ideas

Hey guys! I joined maplestory a while back around 2008 and in my opinion, pre big bang was the best. Even though the grind was real, the community was strong, people didnt really worry about equips too much, and party quests actually met something. Lately I've been thinking if maplestory would surge in popularity again if Nexon released a separate server that runs patches before the big bang. I know for a fact I would join again. Now I know that there are a lot of technical aspects as to why this is probably extremely difficult, if not impossible. I'm just wondering if that sounds like a cool idea to you guys. And if not 100% pre big bang, what era would you revert the game back to? Or maybe a combination of pre big bang with LHC and pvp, maybe potential system included? What would you guys revert to or add? Also what job would you choose if the pirate class was the last addition to this server?
Side note: If you like maplestory as is, this thread isnt for you

I dunno if you knew this but potential was a pre-big bang thing.

If they made a server without potentials and pre-bang stuff... I'd come back out of retirement for that.

Dude first of all damage has always been a factor in MS. What are you talking about that the community did not care for better equips or damage? I remember all the time people asking what's your damage range, people discussing the most dps class in the game, asking what attack pac/wg/FS/etc you had. It's always been about damage it's just more so now due to the fact that more things involve damage.

Also pre-bb was only good due to the community it had in it. That community is long gone due to multiple factors. Either they are too old and grew out of the game, moved on to other better mmos, or learned to adjust to the current MS and would not want to revert back to pre-bb era. Lastly, if they made a pre-bb server it's guaranteed that it won't last longer than maybe 6 months tops. People would get bored of having a server that did not update all. People would get tired of the long grinds to reach lvl 30.

Everyone is so use to the current MS now that if they suddenly changed the game backwards they would hate it. You say you would rejoin for pre-bb but I can guarantee you that you would find it boring eventually. If you don't have that same exact community in the game you won't like pre-bb. That was made pre-bb special. It wasn't about the long grinds, the harder bosses, or anything else. It was all the community.

My final advice on this topic is please learn to adjust or just not play MS anymore. Trying to force your nostalgia down everyone throats or begging for Nexon to make a pre-bb server won't do anything. It's already been stated that there will never be a pre-bb server. You need to learn to adjust to change as mmos is meant to update and upgrade. That is why they are mmos. If you want a stand alone game that does not update all then stick with console games or steam games that have only story line to go with. MMOS are meant to change that's why mmos differ so much than regular console/pc games.

+1 You can't get a community like that anymore, because

1. You're older and have a different mind than you did in the past as a child or teen.

2. People your age typically don't play free2play MMORPGs anymore, they moved on to paid content because they can afford to.

3. The age group that most F2P MMORPGs are aimed at now look at survival or fps online games. most MMORPGs like maple are way past their prime.

4. People are more aware of the free-to-play and freemium models, and are beginning to frown upon it. I believe this is why Maple has eased up on the pay-to-win and made things easier for free players.

Pre Big Bang Maple World was also smaller, it was crowded, less good maps to train in. So we went to popular maps.

Of course you will create some community.

I'm sure you can't get the same community now as back then.

We know the population isn't high anymore and it's less crowded but we also got more and better maps.

Although the game improved and simplified in some way it's still not really easy or welcoming new players at all. Some of these changes just give the existing players faster way to go through the game because they already know the game and any changes that may help them to get faster to their destiny is always nice.

Prebigbang is fine even without the old community imo. I just hate up washing. Besides, I was always a solo player who looked down on moons and ignored them.

@agcorsair12: Easy. Dexless assassin, brother. Can still get high damange with extremely low funding. With high funding you were a effing legend.

Also, potentials didn't come until after big bang.. I believe.
