Hey guys,

I was thinking to play maple again after leaving like 2-3 years ago.
I downloaded the game and their were barely any people, even in free market channel 1 (scania)
Did so many people quit maple or did something else happen?

People need to remove their nostalgia goggles and realize games progress, and they're not supposed to be what they were in the early years. If you don't like it, quit and stop complaining. Don't ramble about the game not being a place where you just get on to chat..

It's no longer the thieves who has flash jump
A classes end up with nearly the same mobility
Your going to want to change the damage animation off default
It's harder to make money without nx[/quote]

It's a lot easier to make money now, even without nx. The only ways money making were really even possible back then were through merching (still needed nx) and bossing, which was something only high leveled people could do, but now that it's easier to get to 200, bossing is a lot easier.

Now we have superior crystals, elite bosses and all of their drops, craftable cubes, gollux, and other things you can make money from

@IceManNL Night Lord still is truly the cool class but it's "hard to fund", aka low damage to meso ratio. But I would come back just to try new classes and content, cause you know how much content MapleStory adds (and gets rid of...)

@bugbean maybe easier to gain mesos, but the prices of everything has gone up overall too, so it doesn't really matter.

True, but it's still easier to get decent equips now. Emp sets are extremely cheap, and starforce is a good way to make your equips stronger without needing a lot off money.

not to mention there are a lot more options for accessory items. remember when the only pot/scroll-able rings were wedding rings?

@bugbean: back in the day, if you were a dexless sin and you wanted to be good, you wanted a sauna robe with 30 LUK and Ilbis and Shinobi bracer that was scrolled for like 25 more ATT...and a few other things. That costed maybe like 40-60mil?

Now you need all the empress stuff to be BELOW average and it costs like 1bil all together, if you actually get the full set, which is still below average. Then spell tracing and star force costs another 500mil for all the equips.

I guess it was just more simple back then.

As you can see from all the threads that have been posted today Maplestory is still a wonderful game to play.

Not that it's important, but I'm positive those items costed way more than that.
Considering how rare LUK overall scrolls were, claw and dagger attack scrolls being the most expensive, and having to pass 10~30% scrolls?

I remember paying 15mil for a +6 (+12 attack) Deadly Fin back then, better believe another +13 attack would cost a pretty penny considering that's almost perfected.

@MeerCats: I just know I had that stuff but I never had more than 50mil at once.
