  1. El Nido Bandana
    Zenith Bandana
    Arcania Bandana
    Aster Bandana
    Where added to Tespia means, this will be the 4 new world’s just telling you.

    • just 1 word, LAGG new worlds = alot of lagg to all servers i gues since the whole maple engine or w/e now needs to run 4 more servers, okay there wil be the same amount of people that play the game, but all the maps need to be loaded 4 more times

    • Edit: Now that I extract I notice that there is a good chance of 4 new worlds coming to GMS.
      I really doubt that we’ll be getting all of those servers in Big Bang. I would those as the next four worlds though.

      • i got a question for you zach, uhm … why 4 worlds, what in the world (lol) could is NA thinking !
        i mean, 1 world is enough, but why do they expect that almost all the players will start a new world, why so much worlds, its not like we NEED to start over since our max char slot is 12 (or 15) and i don’t expect anyone to have those maxed out yet, so who would wanna start in a new world when they can play in a world without money problems…
        okay it is FUN to play the first few weeks when everyone is noob and there are no DMG noobs, but still, 4 worlds !! do they plan on making those worlds job exclusive worlds (lol im just joking)….
        i bet these worlds wil be even more dead than deme… or galicia… OR they are adding 4 worlds, so that during another patch they wil fuse these 4 “dead” worlds with some other “dead” worlds like deme, yellone, galicia

        • It’s not confirmed that 4 new worlds are actually coming. But the data states that quest opening quests for Zenith, Arcania, Nova and Aster are currently scheduled to begin on the 6th. This can be changed at any time. I’m not sure if we’ll get 4 new worlds but there is a chance.

          • The thing about Bigbang coming 1dec, I geuss that’s impossible because GMS always tell’s us a month before it arrives a Release date like aran and evan.
            But still you could be right.

            • It’s definitely December 1 or December 6. We actually didn’t get an Evan release dates until a week before the class was released. The Aran release date of December 9, however, was revealed nearly a month before the class was released, which is why I can remember it so easily.
