    Big bang coming in the 7th

    December has always been a good month for mappling, at least as much as i remember

  2. all the years are crap (updates in december), only 2005 , 2009 and 2010 are good

    • 2006 had Amoria which is GMS original. That automatically makes it a great update.

      • amoria is only for weddings , now unless you are gonna marry in maplestory, then amoria is useless , if GMS made a GMS original content wich only uncluded 1 useless NPC in henesys just to fill up some space, would it still be considered great ?

        • No. Every piece of content in MapleStory is useless unless you use it. Amoria is an entire area with a PQ that thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people use every day. It isn’t useless at all.

          • its only for a special typ of people, those special people are ppl that buy NX, then its for a special group IN that group , the people that marry in a game ….
            so its for like 10% of the whole community.
            the amoria PQ is only for people married, and since you also need to find someone to marry, cause maybe ur GF IRL doesn’t wanna marry in maplestory.
            i walk in AMoria sometimes and i rarely see someone , its only to marry and to have some fun, but overall it was a bad event … like, in EMS they had a EMS exclusive event, and gues what, you could only enter if you used NX, and it wasn’t even a fun event, so are exclusive events still good ?
            no it depents on the content, cause that would say all content is good considered from a korean point of view

            • I’m not saying that all exclusive content is good. I’m saying Amoria is good. It’s used by many, it’s designed extremely well and Amoria and Crimsonwood Keep which are both GMS original are the only two original ares to have a party quest. The fact is that many people use it and love going there. Whether or not you or anybody else thinks it’s not great place, many people do and it’s original. Just a note: MapleSEA, and TaiwanMS had Peach Blossom Island and that Wedding system which is catered towards the Asian culture. When Nexon America released Amoria which was developed for the Western culture, MapleSEA and TaiwanMS, despite being in Asia, switched over. That much say something.

    • updates may not have been good…
      but events in december… thats other thing

    yeah i must have misread, but i like amoria don’t get me wrong, it has a super nice BGM, but its not practical, wich in my eyes makes it crap..
    if the map would have a good PQ for non NX-users, or some good training spots, or even a nice small storyline then it would be fun
