Why are you still playing Maplestory?
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.
