I know a lot of people who get angry at private servers, saying “screw private servers!”
Well, You know what I’ll say to you people?
Screw you and your ball-sucking Nexon Corporation, the pricks who ruined my favorite online game.
When I started GMS in beta, MapleStory had a certain feel to it. People were nice. There was no rush to grind and level. No preassure to purchase overpriced pixels from an online shop. Playing the game was actually FUN, like a game should be. I had a ton of friends who I got along great with. It was amazing.
And then came along Nexon, with their “because we can, and it’s free.”
Let me do some more translating. “Because we can BS, and we get paid to do it.“
After playing SMS, the private MapleStory server, I’ll never be able to look at Nexon’s MapleStory the same way again. I can never, ever go back to it.
The members of SMS are just like what MapleStory used to be. Everyone had bonds. Everyone (mostly) was cheerful. Noobs were scarce. NX was free, like it should be.
Well, today, Nexon sent those who run SMS a cease and desist letter. For “making profit off the game”. Not surprising, Nexon is all about profit.
But I’ll really miss SMS. I’d never have gotten to level 118 in GMS, even if I spent my entire life. I’m just a slow leveler like that. It was the best two weeks of my summer.
Screenshot #1. Smega spam about Pokemon with GM input. So much fun.
Screenshot #2. Just today, the last day of SMS, thanks to Nexon’s C&D. GM’s summoned Zakum in the FM. I only died about ten times!
Screenshot #3. My extremely annoying stalker, Daniel123, being banned. PRAISE THA LAWD.
Screenshot #4. This is how badly he annoyed me. It was pathetic.
R.I.P., SMS. And go to hell, Nexon.
Private servers are illegal, yes. They are wrong, they are stealing, they are able to be sued. Yes.
But they are a game. They are not a grind-fest.
When I played SMS, I never felt pressured to level. Never felt bored by it.
When I played SMS, I never was kill stolen. Never had to deal with any ‘noobs.’
When I played SMS, I had everything I wanted. If I needed anything, I could get it.
When I played SMS, I had fun. I did things how I wanted.
And now Nexon’s saying I can’t.
Who’s the bad guy again?”
C’mon . If I like grinding to level 100 in an hour and you prefer to take a month , go ahead . What do we have to do with you ? It’s not as though the private server people can go into the game of yours . And the thing about CS is that . It’s like a hack . x2 exp = getting more exp than others . If you didn’t use the cash item , that itself would be a hack . There’s still the meso magnet and item pouch . Isn’t that looting ? A supposed to be hack ? Monster magnet , attracts monsters , vack hack if I’m not wrong ? Really , the thing about maple is that , you have to be at a moderate level . Yes , you can and could if you want , make as many friends at level 40 as a level 80 . But , the skills and stuff . Many people will choose level over friends . Trust me I know . I have this friend who’s a biatch on maple , but really nice in RL . Maple changes people . They want to be the good , better and best . They make use of people , use their trust and break it . Greed for leveling , fame and stuff . In private servers , hardly anyone does that . Why ? Because , they can achieve it w/o much help . I know people who have lost friends in RL due to online games . It sucks badly , but hey , that’s life .
I don’t want to sound so harsh on you , but this comment is for all who think that private servers suck just because we level up faster than you . I am really getting sick of you people just posting your thoughts everywhere and any way you want . I mean sure , you dislike private servers , fine , go ahead and let us know . But no , you’re not allowed to condeem people just because they do that . It’s like what someone ( forgot who >< ) said , private servers are like downloading free songs off the net when others pay for it . I doubt you have never ever done that . Supposedly , even getting your friends to send you songs or ripping the songs from discs they bought is wrong .”
Within Global, there is absolutely no point to play (At least from my view). Go ahead, say that you’re “legit,” but that doesn’t mean anything. A game that is made to maximize profit, as is the view of all corporations, sacrifices its soul to do so. Because those without money feel out in the dirt, abandoned for those who can pay. Parity disappears. And when that happens, the whole game goes to shambles, because the richest look the best and are the best and no amount of skill or luck will change that.”
And now, copypasta-ing myself.
Playing on a private server with free NX cash and enhanced rates is my way of coping with this knowledge. I’m satisfied knowing that I don’t have to spend my hard-earned money on luxuries with a time-limit. I’m satisfied that I can now play my favorite game and attain reachable goals which won’t suck up all of my free time. And I’m happy to know that no one is profiting from it. If you have a problem with that, then piss off.
