Most any exploit hurts the foundation of the game. That isn't necessarily bad, but it does hurt the players in the short and long term.

Usually Nexon just stops the exploit and doesn't do anything to the offending players who get to keep the profits, but they do end up banning players who buy those duped items. So it's like everything is going their [the hackers] way.

"if you can't beat them, join them"

says botters, hackers, and their consumers. Or they just don't play and get a slice of pizza.

@beefly: Gotta love the Report button. It's baned sooooo many botters. lmfao But really though I've reported the same player numerous times in a week and still see them and or others hacking in the same map for hours.

I think they can do something about since they can track down and ban people with the items. So that brings the question to the table, how will the punish and discourage hackers in the future?

+3 Nexon is too scared to address it seriously because the community is so used to it at this point.
If they actually enforced it more seriously, they'd get tons of people on the forums rioting.
Dealing with the community of this game is like dealing with a spoiled little king. You can't say yes to his every whim, but you can't say no either.

+5 I'd rather they ban actual hackers than people who take advantage of their own faulty event. There's still 1000 people with hacked skills and hacked hyper stats hitting 10b on everything and openly botting in Lach. I've reported at least 3 people with video evidence 4 times each and Nexon refuses to do anything about it.

That to me is way more inexcusable than something like this. The fact that so many hackers are free to run around with possibly the most game breaking hack ever, soloing Lucid, Hard Damien, Hard Lotus, openly botting and reaching lv245+, and even with 6 videos of evidence Nexon still doesn't bother.

They patched the hack 2.5 weeks ago and never bothered to ban anyone who used it so now every bot who was fast enough has a free frenzy totem, free 10b damage on everything, and free full map attack.

+1 @littletlk: Also, hacks may be the only reason those people can stomach the game.
@nitsua2789: I don't think the company is in a good place right now, evidenced by the current state and from what I've seen on glassdoor. A Maplestory close may not be too far away.
@deeemon: It could be their coders aren't up to par when it comes to spotting details, and often their bug team is slow on fixing things. I think they have downsized or cannot put money into new hires due to lack of funds, and also because of reputation.
@beefly: Since I don't care to play the game normally, I might just decide to play just to exploit and gain massive funds and damage in a day. That could bring players to the game, but I think Nexon just isn't putting the effort into their dying game.
@smexiininja: I don't know why they aren't doing stuff. I can only guess it may be related to resources, eventual closing, noncaring, etc. We know something is wrong, though.

@nitsua2789:
Amen. Also submitted video evidence of these guys several times. Nothing seems to get done.
@wellness:
I seriously doubt a game closure is coming any time soon.
Maplestory is Nexon America's biggest moneymaker. They also recently published some new games. There's no logical reason to close it down.

@littletlk: I can't see the future -- I think -- but I don't doubt a sudden closure, given the state of the game as I am being told.
