[VINEU] [MSA] [CA] Vindictus Europe CBT Begins + MapleStory Adventures 1.10 + Combat Arms Fusion Stage 2

Nothing annoys me more than when a game publisher says “Close Beta” instead of the correct “Closed Beta”.

Europe’s most anticipated free-to-play MMO ever has finally entered its closed beta! Welcome Europeans to the land of Vindictus! Unfortunately, players of Vindictus live in a less attractive time than that of players of Mabinogi which takes place several hundred years after the events of Vindictus. Less attractive, that is, unless you enjoy endless bloodshed. Vindictus Europe is currently available in English and German.

The Legend

The air is thick with despair, and the battles never cease. Rain falls, yet the land is barren, as if the earth has been drenched in too much bloodshed to bear fruit. Monstrous creatures lurk in every trench, cave, and valley. To survive, people have huddled together, forming ramshackle towns with high walls. Yet, cowering behind those walls does not guarantee safety…

What has become of the outside world? Few people know. Fewer care to find out. As the common folk trudge from one empty day into the next, only one thought keeps them going: the Legend. The Legend will come to pass. The people yearn for it, pray for it. They hope and believe. And because they believe, they know.

One day, they will be in Erinn.

Erinn, The Land of Paradise

In this world, there is but one moon, and it shines upon a wasteland where Fomors and beasts roam, hungry to tear flesh from bone. Not so in Erinn. In Erinn, there will be two moons, Eweca and Lateka, and they will shine with the brightness of the gods. There, no one will age or fall ill, and the land will be rich with bountiful resources.

It is the dream of Erinn, the paradise promised in the Legend, which fuels humanity in these dark times. The people wait, as they have for countless generations, for the black-winged goddess to come and save them.

They wait. Because the Legend is truth. It must be, for it is all they have.

As did the Korean and North American services of Vindictus, Vindictus Europe will start off with only two characters, Lann and Fiona. They are gender locked with Lann being male and Fiona female. Lann uses dual weapons and is usually faster and stronger. Fiona wields a weapon and a shield and excels in defense.

Unlike the other services, however, Vindictus Europe will be launched with the Xtreme Edition of the game which wasn’t added to the Korean service until months after it was launched and still hasn’t made an appearance in the North American service. The Xtreme Edition features additions to the game to make it even more fast paced that the original edition with such new features as unrestrained combat and the ability to jump and perform aerial combos.

Vindictus is a dungeon-running brutally elegant MMORPG which is a prequel to popular and established MMORPG Mabinogi Fantasy Life. The two games have little in common where gameplay and visuals are concerned. Vindictus is currently in closed beta in Europe.

MapleStory Adventures is Nexon’s first move into the space of social network gaming, and so far it has been successful. The game which is the Facebook adaption of the hugely successful 2D side-scrolling MMORPG MapleStory has become the fastest growing Korean social game ever, crossing the 3,000,000 monthly active user mark during its open beta, and it continues to grow. Nexon released an update for MapleStory Adventures, version 1.10.

Included in the latest update are the following:

  1. The chinese version has the XE Version as well.

  2. How do I get a beta key? D:
    I’m dutch.

    • Everywhere I’ve been all beta keys have already been distributed so you’ll have to wait until open beta to play.

      • Thanks for telling it me fast, I just found one and it worked!
        Amazing I love this gam, but only one problem when I change my IP to play it in america it will lag like hell.

        • I’m glad you like it because I do too!
          I don’t quite understand what you said though. If you are residing in America and want to play the European service why don’t you just play the North American service. Or is it that you live in Europe but want to play the North American service? Either way, I implore you not to try to play a service of Vindictus other than the one for your local region. The biggest reason for this is that Vindictus runs on a peer-to-peer system so resources are shared between the members of a party. So if you are in a party and you have a bad connection (live far away from the servers), everyone else in the party will be negatively affected. So please, play your local service.

          • In other more understandable words .. Vindictus’ connection = CoD connection

          • Yeah, i’m from europe, and the vindictus in North america gots a European IP block, so I changed my IP to a North america one, but I lagged alot.
            and whenever I was in a party all the other players did too!
            so you explained to me why that happend, haahha thnx 😀
            I hope I see you in game soon

    when is the game open to everyone ? Since I NEEEEEED to play it, Dragon nest kind of died for me the moment my lil bro got higher level than me … wich has been since the start because he played it before me …. my download speed is so slow -_-
    He is like level 19, I’m only level 9 xD

    • NO ROBBIN. You need to get to AT LEAST level 15 and advance to your 2nd job and start PvPing before you can make a real opinion of Dragon Nest. Don’t give up yet! But Vindictus Europe should launch by the end of the year.

    And you should get married, invite all your “friends” from Nexon, put them in a seperate room where they will be blindfolded and tied on a chair, let me in and be with them for 3 hours…
    Then, and only THEN will we know the truth behind Pirate vs Ninja patch.
    Would be nice if you invite some korea dev’s and some translators as well.. so we can ask them “nicely” about the pirate & thief Jump.
    I mean, come on, A stupid PQ revamp !!@EQ#@E$#Q$()

  5. msupdate :
    LOL. Unfortunately I don’t do illegal things… anymore…

    Then throw a party, with some NA people and Nexon Korea people, give them LOADS of alcohol, and see if they loosen up 😉
    I seriously need Pirate vs Ninja to live 😥

  6. msupdate :
    Something is telling me that it won’t actually be called Pirates vs Ninjas.

    YAAAAAY so your friends DID say something ?? COOL ! So tell me, what else did they say, and what did they say about the name … Pirate vs Ninja would be cool right…
    Why did Korea postpone it ? GIve me their information PLEASE

    • Umm no… I just don’t think that Nexon would really call it Pirates vs Ninjas. O.O. Like I said before, the only real information on this they have given me is that it was postponed because Nexon didn’t feel it was ready for implementation in the game and it is still being worked on. Sorry to disappoint F3.
