Will this be the final trick nexon pulls us ? The games most anticipated boss finally comes to life. Knowing Nexon only players with a zillion range will stand a change against him/her, so for me that will be watching youtube. And after that nexon will pull the plug out off maplestory and put its money on maplestory 2.

I sincerly hope i am wrong.....

Yes, I believe this is the case. It's only natural for the second version of a game to overtake the first and seeing how the population for ms1 has been low for years, we can say the time has come. I doubt they will close the game completely (yet) as there's still a small market for the people who prefer 2d, but new players will automatically go to ms2 and they won't be attracting any old players to ms1 for that matter either. So they will release the mage, drain every last inch of the players money and shift its money/focus onto ms2, and thus ms1 will eventually die for good.

I doubt it. Kms2 is dead overseas by korean standards, and it seems like they are still pushing hard as ever on Ms1 content. So I dont see them shooting themselves in the foot by cutting off ms1 entirely at all.

+1 It won't, they are finishing Black Mage storyline so they can start with the next one which is Darmoor, the real "bad boy" which is the "same" as the Black Mage in Maple World but in Nova dimension, we already have seen some of the storyline doing the quests with Ark and Illium. So probably more content will be released after Black Mage.
And no, Black Mage's fight it's a 1v1, as you, the player, are the "hero" of the world by killing him. All the alliance helping with the global fight but you are the only one fighting him.
So you won't need a stupid amount of damage to kill him, the hard part will be to do all the prequests to get to him.

Has the MS1 population been dwindling? Why aren't more people playing this game? I swear years back there were a boat load of people. I don't think MS1 is dying anyway so I do not see them closing the game down in the near future.

@forgottenjellal: I hope you're righty. i for one will stay aty MS1. Its the game i know and love. MS2 looks like a strange gimmick to me.

The main reason I quit MS1 and moved to MS2 is because of the lag/disconnect issues that plague the game. They really need to fix all of its problems if they want people to come back and play again. For me it got to the point where I couldn't even stay logged in for more than 10 minutes without d/cing. That's if I manage to log on, usually after about 5 to 20 tries.

@bleute: BERA en REBOOT go from 20 to 30 channels, a big effort to reduce lag and disconnect issues. It shows MS1 will be with us for some time.
