Welcome to September’s edition of This Month in Our Past.
Two new worlds, two new PQs, Cody’s promise that he has yet to fulfill, an aggressive clock (of all things…), a poorly implemented but great idea, one of the most disappointing updates ever and Shammos’ moment of glory. September has been an average month.
Client Version Update: 0.07
Game Update Name: –
Game Update Date: Thursday, September 8, 2005
– New World – Broa
– Cody and the Theme Park quest
-End of the Mark of the Beta giveaway
It was GlobalMS’s third world, Broa, added in September 2005. This came along with Cody’s promise of a great theme park that the players are still waiting for six years later and the end of the Mark of the Beta giveaway.
For the third time this Summer, MapleStory’s Korean service has eclipsed its own industry-leading peak concurrent user mark. After the Cannon Shooter update, KoreaMS hit 620,000 simultaneous users, less than a month after it hit 588,000 concurrent users and less than two months after it hit 417,000 concurrent users. After the Big Bang update last Summer KoreaMS hit 410,000 concurrent users.
These PCCU records are unbelievable. I would expect this out of a game service in China, where the population of gamers exceeds 500 million with a population of well over one billion, but not in Korea where the country’s total population is less than 48 million.
It’s hilarious, unless you don’t understand what the heck is going on.
I love this episode of Testers, and the future reports on their games. So funny… Happy Nexon gaming!
