[NXNA] Servers Getting Ready for the Summer

Things are getting VERY interesting around here.

Greetings Nexon gamers,

Summer of 2011 is set to be the biggest ever for Nexon. We are planning for the launch of Dragon Nest, social games, and BIG changes to the Nexon website. And of course, we’re also planning for fantastic updates to our current lineup of games. In anticipation of these additions, we’ll be performing a lot of preparation on the back end to ensure that our servers and hardware are ready for the expected increase in the number of people playing our games. Below is how maintenances will shape up in our build up to the summer months.

Maintenance Plans:

1. Sporadic maintenances occurring outside of the weekly maintenances (usually late Tuesday evenings).
2. Longer downtimes during weekly maintenances.
3. Possible downtime for websites as well as games.

We’re hoping to get a lot of the work done early so that the summer season goes smoothly. We’ll do our best to provide as much prior announcement as possible before maintenances occur. In the meantime, we are extremely grateful to our players for your patience. Here’s to a great summer, and thank you for playing Nexon’s games!

-The Nexon Team-


We all know about Dragon Nest. I’m very happy to hear about new social games being launched in America as I think that Nexon America only servicing eight after all of six years in an industry that they dominate and a business model that they pioneered is quite unsatisfactory. It’s likely that MapleStory Adventures for Facebook will be one of these social games. The BIG changes to the website, I assume, will be the long awaited launch of game portal and social network service BlockParty. And then we have the big updates to the games. The only update I would know of right now would be MapleStory Chaos. Will we see a new game mode hitting Combat Arms, new dungeons being added to DFO, new maps coming to PopTag? Maybe a new region in Atlantica or a new character in Vindictus, or even the launch of Vindictus Xtreme Edition?

I hope that these maintenances pay off.

[BPBB] [Kart] Masteria and Kart Rider Hints in Blabber Box?

This has to be one of the most interesting days I’ve had in a while when it comes to Nexon. The BlockParty Blabber Box was great, but what secrets did it hold within? Let’s take a look at any hints that the Blabber Box may have revealed…

[BPBB] BlockParty Blabber Box is Here!

Nexon America has today released Episode 1 in their brand new web show, BlockParty Blabber Box. In my opinion this is Nexon’s best idea since Vindictus. It’s funny, entertaining, informative and finally gives Nexon a way to communicate with us a slightly less than professional and more comical way which in some cases (like this one) is a good thing. Blabber Box will feature updates on all of Nexon’s games from the producers themselves, sketches, animated shorts and a whole lot more.

Great job here, Luis and… uhh… hmm NICE shirt. I can’t wait for next month’s episode!

Oh, and another thing people. During the interview with Daniel China there was one of those old Kart Rider teaser playing the background. Could the most fun online game ever created finally be coming back to America after more than 2 and a half years? Let’s hope…
