I remember when I was in middle school, first starting out in Galicia, I was on my Evan (at that time, Evans were just released) questing in Magatia. There were these pink boxes that dropped from mobs, and in those boxes you were able to obtain a chair (the one with the wooden spa tub and the adorable rubber ducky). I was near the general store merchant in the town, opening these boxes.

I was able to get a Chaos Scroll 60%. Nowadays, these are ridiculously cheap and accessible (at least in Scania anyway) but man, in those days I easily sold that scroll in the FM entrance for maybe 60-70m. I didn't know if I was getting ripped off or not, but with that "wealth," that honestly hyped me up and began my addiction to log in every day after school.

  • EDIT: I don't really actively play anymore, but it's nice to log into nostalgia.

What was your turning point?

When they announced Hayato was coming over here after they killed my Shadower. And then the whole Legion thing, which was hella better than the previous character card system, made me want to get every character to at least level 200 for those SS rank effects.

Now that I'm done with Legion, and after nexon killed my Hayato, I don't even play anymore.
Too bad nexon America can't grow a brain and give us 44 character slots instead of 42 with this Nova update, I still don't have a Bishop yet. Why do we always have to delete a character to participate in those Pink Bean events? Because nexon America is dumb, that's why. /endrant

I will play again when chain lady and crystal mage guy is available, but I'll get them to 200 as fast as frick because I definitely don't want to waste my winter break with that garbage company.

Legion kept me playing for a while, but like deeemon, I got to Leg 1 and don't intend to do the absurd amount of leveling required for Leg 2. More recently I've just been logging on for events, most notably Dark lords of Darkness, and I'm currently taking a break from training my Aran to 210 with the free 2x coupons.

I don't think I ever had to get something to get me logging in more frequently. MS was my first MMO and I was pretty much a lonely high school student, like I hardly ever hung out with my friends after school and didn't even really have friends til mid-Sophomore year or so. By that point I couldn't stop, it was partially a sunk cost fallacy and partially an unwillingness to potentially miss events.

Yep, Maplestory can definitely become a "drug." I'm glad I moved past that phase a long time ago.

Legion is meh for meh for me. I also log on just for events that maybe take like 15-30min to complete, like Dark Lords or attendances. I don't even run the daily bosses anymore because of time constraints.

Speaking of high school, that's where I found a friend that also played MS (still my best friend since then, been like 6+ years now). Although he doesn't play anymore in Windia, RIP Enakyu sometimes you have to geek out to find people that will mean a lot to you in life, especially in high school where there are a lot of cliques, which tend to be artificial. If you can/could/were able to move past that, then you'll definitely find the right people.

+1 I don't play a lot of MH or Diablo (I have seen gameplay, pretty gnarly!) but I'm stoked for USUM. Don't think I'll get to play the night of though ):

Had a few people I actively talked to a bunch in my 8th grade and early years of high school. Ontop of that, I had a neighbor that played too and we'd play together pretty often.
