General MapleStory Forum Talk about MapleStory in general

When i check Basil today my eye fell directly on two very negative posts. One with the depressing title "why are you still playing mapestory", the other with the corny thread title "Everything feels so depressed when i logon to maplestory".
Its time for some positiveness, i still love maple, after more then 10 years, i love the retro look, i love it that i am never so strong as i want to be. There will always remain goals for me in this game. I love the visuals, i love the game play. Some times our game is incredible cute (the KFT storyline !)Most folks i meet ingame are friendly and helpfull and when i have problems the games helpdesk can be very usefull.
If you think maple is not your game just stop playing it and dont post about it. Why should anybody be interested in negative stories ?
Real life is filled with negativity, let this game be a positive realm ! An escape from misery

Hope you all have a terrific day !

Maplestory is a source of depression for many people. It is difficult to escape this fact.

+4 @wellness: if people feel that way they should just stop playing maple. Dont post about it, why should they ? Sharing should be a positive thing.

+1 I've always loved this game for the aesthetics and the sheer amount of content it has. I've never been more than a casual player (don't spend that much on cubes, gear, etc.), yet I always turn to this game whenever I just need to wind down.

The community is also great. Lots of like-minded, friendly folks you can just chat up with anytime.

The game is fun, especially slowly working on gearing your characters in Reboot like how Diablo 3 does it.

+3 @gekkegerrit: People are free to share about their troubles and opinions here. I'm not sure I want to see the day that isn't allowed on a forum.

Sharing both positive and negative things helps build self-awareness.

Do you really want them to stop so you can protect your fake positive reality?

The game depresses people and ropes people into gambling their money.

Life and society can be depressing and disillusions people.

@wellness: oiffcourse is everybody entitled 2 their own opinion. But there is a lot off crap going on in the world. Let this game be a aof fun and happyness. I play because it makes me feel good, if i wouldnt like maple anymore, i would simply stop playing. Whats the use off sharing negative thoughts ?

+1 @wellness: Firstly, this is a thread that's asking to post positive aspects of the game. The reason being is that there are a number of other threads that already do the opposite, so there's really no reason to go against the OP's wishes.

And what you call a source of depression is not exactly the sole contributor to the problems you describe. If the game really brings you that much trouble, then there should be no reason for you to play any further. I won't deny that there's a lot of cash grabs and gambling in this game, but if you let those take control of your life, then there are more problems that need to be addressed. In the end, it's just a game after all. Can't find any joy in it? Find something else to fulfill that part of your life or seek help if it comes to that.

This is coming from someone with clinical depression.

@gekkegerrit: I think we need to share both the positive and negative aspects of maple so maybe it can improve and so that people can be aware before they jump in. Nexon ignores a lot of things, so the game doesn't improve much. They think there's something only wrong with the players instead of their game, even though they have the power to drastically improve the structure.

People can also find it calming to share their negative thoughts. They can be awakened to new ideas and determination.

@peachtime: Op also states people shouldn't post negative things.
