[GMS] Breaking News: 136,000 Concurrent Users
Unbelievable. Global MapleStory hit an internal record of 136,000 concurrent users yesterday (December 22, 2010), demolishing the previous record of 70,000 set after the release of the Cygnus Knights in July 2009. Such a number of users playing at the same is likely a result of the Big Bang and Rise of the Resistance updates along with 2xEXP, 2xDrop and a hot time event. Global MapleStory has a total of over 7 million players and MapleStory has over 95 million worldwide. When Big Bang hit the Korean shores, 410,000 concurrent users were recorded which isn’t just an internal record, but an all time Korean record for simultaneous users. Korea MapleStory hit 280,000 concurrent users recently after the Chaos update. Still, MapleStory is far off from Dungeon & Fighter (Dungeon Fighter Online) and its world record 2.2 million concurrent user mark.
