[GMS] This Month in Our Past: October

October has been a very eventful month for GlobalMS in the past. From the opening of the cash shop, to the NXGames (Nexon) takeover, to the release of Singapore and Malaysia. Excluding Halloween events, here are the highlights of the updates of Octobers past.

October 2005

The GlobalMS 0.08 update took place on Wednesday, October 19, 2005.

  • Nexon logo placed in the game
  • Opening of the thing that keeps the game alive, the cash shop
  • Publishing service taken over by Nexon under the name NXGames
  • Critical purple damage numbers

October 2006

October 2006 saw GlobalMS 0.30 on Wednesday, October 18, 2006 and was quite boring.

  • Halloween events, had to say it or I wouldn’t say anything

October 2007

Back to a good October with GlobalMS 0.44 on Thursday, October 11, 2007

  • Opening of new game server – Kradia
  • Original Haunted House (original content)

October 2008

October 2008 added one of my favorite training areas ever, MP3 in GlobalMS 0.61 on Wednesday, October 18, 2008.

  • Singapore
  • Pirate class prevents and prequests
  • Guest Login (RIP)

October 2009

October 2009 held one of the biggest updates GlobalMS has ever seen. GlobalMS 0.77 was released on Thursday, October 22, 2010.

  • Malaysia (TZM, Kampung Village, Malaysia Theme Park, Targa and Scarlion Bosses)
  • Balrog Boss
  • Haunted House II (original content)
  • Gold Richie
  • Witch’s Tower
  • Level Up Event
  • Cygnus Knights Tutorial
  • New Party Searching Window
  • Drake and Pirate Minidungeons
  • New medals

I can’t wait to see what we’ll get for Halloween events this year. It’s likely that we won’t get a major content for October 2010 since the v91 update is on November 3 (very early in the month) and the September update was on September 28 (very late in the month).

  1. Been here since ’05!

    I joined almost exactly 5 years ago- somethime in October.

    I hope we get good events this month (ulu! But that’s not an event). Open up the haunted house quests and do something cool.

    Is it just me or has GMS been getting much worse events than we used to?

  2. Woah 5 years since they put in the nexon logo, times flown by Q_Q.

    • hehe, agreed … i can remember me playing maplestory as a noob as if it was yesterday ….. or was it yesterday … hmmmm
