First off, I’d like to ask that no one post a welcome or anything, I always find that annoying for some reason. I’ve been on MMOT and have played Maplestory for a very long time, I just left for about a year, though.
And sorry if this kinda crappy, I tried to write it right before going to bed and it was kinda rushed, if I saved it to work on later I never would have gotten around to posting it.
I started playing Maplestory around 2005, but after giant waves of hackers came and Maplestory started advertising like crazy (which attracted honey bunches of annoying people), I started absolutely hating the game and quit in early 2007. I started playing World of Warcraft during the summer, but couldn’t afford to pay during the entire school year; plus, I wouldn’t be able to keep my grades up which are slipping anyways. I’ve been on Basilmarket this entire time, which has kept me away from going back to Maplestory because all that’s on Basilmarket are pretty much all the negative things.
Recently I’ve had this random urge to go back to Maplestory, and what was even weird was that it was right after I posted this giant reply to a thread about ‘Maplestory itself’.
I remember when Maplestory was just about fun and making friends, not about leveling up or making money. I never did explore all of Ludibrium, and the newest place I had ever been to was Omega Sector. After that, new items and places came out, and I had absolutely no knowledge of any of these things because I was trying to play it the old way, sticking around the old hang out spots like Henesys and Kerning City. I actually got made fun of and called a ‘noob’ once because I didn’t know what wand a magician was carrying around (it was a Phoenix Wand or something like that). I started absolutely hating Maplestory more and more everytime a new item came out, everytime a new build was thought up, because I couldn’t keep up with everything.
I actually never got past level 45, because I started socializing more at that level, and completely gave up on training. I was made fun of by higher levels, and never given any respect. I would always think to myself that I’d been playing Maplestory much longer than any of them, knew more about it, and how dare they disrespect me. Maplestory started seeming less like a game for me, and I absolutely hated it now. It was mostly the community, and I’m not really sure about why everyone just got all..blah.
Anyways, I remember the good ol’ days, when people were nice, and there weren’t hackers behind every corner. I feel so old now.
If anything was inaccurate, sue me, it’s been almost three years since that time.
And if anyone says tl;dr, I’ll slap them.”
Some of it seems kinda weird to me now, it was probably because I might have kinda been replying to someone’s post or something. Anyways, it probably got me thinking of how much fun I had with Maplestory, because I decided to make another account and start anew. I went back to my old server, Bera, for two reasons: A little bit funding from my old accounts (it’s kinda sad, I thought I had like 6M but it turned out it was only like 1.5, I was always poor >_>;; ), and I never liked the new servers for some reason.
I’m not really sure why I’m writing this, but I guess it’s because I’ll be probably be posting about my experiences with the ‘new’ Maplestory, and kinda wanted people to just not be clueless about whatever the hell I was talking about if I did. I’m desperate for friends and people to talk to as well, plus people I can ask for help with new stuff and other crud with, so feel free to contact me in game.
Thanks for reading, and have a nice life as it’s likely you’ll never read another one of my blogs again.
