It's so obviously clear now that this game is a shell of what it used to be, even if they merged all servers into 1 it still wouldn't compare to before. The game's infrastructure itself is in shambles - why use the train, boats, planes, even VIP teleport rock, when you can teleport anywhere you want from that neat little pantheon portal, or even from the Maple Guide that teleports you to training spots. I was surprised when I saw that they still use actual NPCs in this game instead of just cramming them all into a little window just like they did with bosses and party quests. Maplestory has had a very long life but this story has a sad ending.

I trying to get rest of characters to 200, I want all of those SS ranks and Grand Master Union 1 rank thing, dood. I won't ever have to level up ever again. Holy fat lard, they take so damn long to bring Maple Union over here, dood.
I just want to experience Maple Union and be done with this game, I was disappointed for a very long time about having 9 character cards only. I'm also curious about Swordmaster's 2nd Vth job skill, dood.

I don't play as much anymore. Have other things to do and already did everything what I wanted in Maplestory. Only purpose for logging in was to simply chat with maple buds, or maybe for the 5th job skill. Not even gonna bother doing the Union system and leveling up more characters as I felt it's really just another "thing" to do, rather than something I would actually be interested in doing.

Been fun during my time in Maplestory(I actually started from mid-2012?), but I think it's a good time to leave.

I pretty much have the same goal as deeemon. Gotta get all those characters to 200!

@piana: To be fair, though, historically they kill off the fun aspects in favor of money-grab RNG items and many people are opposed, so it may be a legitimate logical thinking. Like, they did pqs and party play wrong. So I guess some people like to grind the RNG items? -shrugs shoulders-

Also, do people really "enjoy" grinding? Killing thousands of the same monsters with few change in scenery to level up seems kind of absurd when you're doing it for days or weeks. It seems like something a very small amount of people would enjoy.

@piana: I see. Well, I accept your feelings. It is late and that was a pre-planned neutral response. People do enjoy questing. It's the closest thing to something casual like the earliest arcade and console games that first mystified humans and is what leads to a generally successful game. I'm not sure why those sports games are popular, though. Same concept? -shrugs-

@piana: I'm not a normal person. You will only find 1% type of me in this world. Or I just have an identity crisis. But you did well to legitimize my response.

I don't try hard. I do what a normal person do, what comes naturally. But maybe it's normal to act unlike yourself? I guess I do that a little, too. Total honesty/naturalness leaves room for weaknesses to be exploited, I guess. -shrugs shoulders-

Then again, if I were to do everything exactly as I wanted, my responses may be succinct/curt.

School brainwashed me a little I think.
