[ThMS] Thailand MapleStory Is Closing

After a lack of game updates since June 2011, AsiaSoft has announced that they have chosen not to renew their license with Nexon for the Thai service of MapleStory. The game will close on June 29, 2012.

The AsiaSoft team has been negotiating with Nexon since the Birth of the Mechanic update in June 2011 but could not agree to the terms of renewal set by Nexon. These terms included a fully English game client (instead of Thai) and a general increase in cash prices to match the prices in other services globally. Another condition put forward by Nexon for the renewal of the game was that all character data must be wiped and players start over from scratch. Interesting…

[MS] “Fastest Updating” and “Most Updated” Rankings: Q3 2011

It’s the final week of the final month of the quarter and that means it’s time for Msupdate’s “Fastest Updating” and “Most Updated” Rankings.

This project started in April when I compared the content of all the services, but specifically KoreaMS, GlobalMS, MapleSEA and EuropeMS, in Content Speed Comparisons: KMS, GMS, MSEA, EMS . The last rankings were “Fastest Updating” and “Most Updated” Rankings: Q2 2011 .

Due to its closure on October 31 and the lack of updates since December 2010, BrazilMS has been removed from the rankings.

To quite understand what I mean by “fastest updating” and “most updated”, why I feel that EuropeMS remains the fastest updating service and why additional, original and exclusive content cannot be counted in how fast a MapleStory service updates (*cough* JapanMS), please read Content Speed Comparisons: KMS, GMS, MSEA, EMS.

Fastest Updating

Current Rank Service Move Since April 2011
1 Europe MapleStory
2 Global MapleStory
3 MapleStory South East Asia +5
4* China MapleStory +1
4* Taiwan MapleStory +1
6 Korea MapleStory -2
7 Japan MapleStory -4
8 Thailand MapleStory -1

*China MapleStory and Taiwan MapleStory are tied. This is not a mistake.

There has been a pretty major shakeup in the Fastest Updating rankings with JapanMS falling 4 places and MapleSEA rising 5.
