This Month in Our Past: February

It’s February! The month of the Lunar New Year, small updates and disappointing content. A new world, innovative cooperative quest and more were added to the game in this month in past years.

February 2006

GlobalMS received two updates in February 2006, the PIN reset function, Valentine’s Day events and the 5th world, Khaini.

February 2007

Client Version Update: 0.34
Game Update Name: –
Game Update Date: Wednesday, February 7, 2007

-Guild Quest
-Valentine’s Day Event
-Lunar New Year’s Event

In February 2007 the awaited guild quest finally made it to Global MapleStory. The guild quest was one of the biggest additions to MapleStory at the time as it provided in-game entertainment other than the constant grind that players were subjected to at the time. This was also one of the first ways (and first official way) for guilds to be ranked against each other.

February 2008

Client Version Update: 0.51
Game Update Name: –
Game Update Date: Thursday, February 14, 2008

-Valentine’s Day
-Lunar New Year’s Event

Just after the addition of what I believe is the most innovative update in Global MapleStory history, the 4th job advancement, and while preparing for the addition of Horntail and Monster Carnival, Nexon took a break. February 2008 saw only the activation of (boring) Valentine’s Day and Lunar New Year events.

February 2009

Nexon took another break in February 2009 when they skipped the month. The January update was on January 22 and the March update was on March 5.

February 2010

Client Version Update: 0.83
Game Update Name: “Year of the Tiger”
Game Update Date: Monday, February 22, 2010

-Kerning Square Mall
-Neo City
-Website Launch
-Improved Quick Slot
-Dimensional Mirror
-Improved Inventory UI
-Episode One: Now Open to Everyone!
-Episode One: Change level to start quests, added Astaroth’s Polearm
-New MTS’able Items
-Hunter’s Luck Event
-Bug Fix

This was the biggest February update to ever hit Global MapleStory. Although it had some unwanted content, it was still big and its content had provided entertainment for many maplers since it went live. The Hunter’s Luck event gave trainer a big EXP boost which training too.

The Golden Temple is making its return on February 2011. We should also spend February 2011 preparing for the big update coming this Spring.
