This week’s blog will be a bit different from the previous ones. MapleStory 2 would like to take time to discuss their journey to launch, the Skybound Expansion and share their plans for moving forward. Today MmoGah (a Golden Brand seller in the game market, ranking No.1 during searching “MapleStory 2 Mesos” in Google) will share the details with you Maplers.
Both the development studio and MapleStory 2 team at Nexon have worked non-stop for the last year to launch and update the game. Starting at the end of last year, they discussed all the changes they hoped to make for the global version to cater to their community, and made countless changes, including the following:
Enchantment system change
Removal of weapons breaking if they fail to enchant
The inclusion of fail stack when players fail to enchant
Dungeon reward structure change
Removal of Lumistones
Removal of outfits with stats
Removal of purchase options relating to gear progression
Improvements in the weekly cap system
Addition of Normal Mode Chaos Raids
Improved Sky Fortress reward structure
Addition of Exploration Goals and World Quests
Change in reward rates and Style Coin price reduction for the Style Crate
More UGC weapon templates based on community feedback
Double drop weeks for the dungeons to support the community to progress faster
Toad Toolkit experiment to smooth out gear progression
Changes to combat meso sellers, including some system requirement changes and over 100 rules to block and ban them
And many more...
This journey has been very exciting, but when they look back, they see that they’ve learned a few things about what they could have done better, or wish they had done differently. They have been spending a lot of time discussing how they should move forward based on what they have learned, and I would like to discuss their high-level direction going forward.
When they were making the above changes to create a better MapleStory 2 for the global audience, there were a few areas they felt could do better. As they have discussed, they are always reviewing feedback and constructive discussions that players share with us. They want to tell you that they recognize that there is feedback around the random aspect of progression combined with the content cap, and they have an opportunity here to improve the game.
MS 2 are not guaranteeing any action at this time, meaning this blog is not meant to say they are removing random aspect or removing the content cap. However they want to share with everyone that they understand this feedback, and they are discussing different ideas to ensure players are always making progress when they invest time into the game.
Another thing they have learned is that they must be more thorough. Speed is very important, and during the first two months the team here was focused on making changes with a fast turnaround. But some of the solutions were not permanent fixes, and were closer to a Band-Aid solution, and sometimes these temporary fixes had unexpected side effects. Thus, going forward their philosophy will be to take more time to thoroughly review their options and come up with better solutions.
Plans for 2019
MS 2 believe it’s important and necessary to adjust existing game systems as they add more content. MS 2 have a massive update plan in the works, but they are also checking to see where they can make adjustments to content already in the game. MS 2 want to focus on key improvements that provide a better you with a better experience.
To summarize the plan for 2019:
• Content they have prepared for their early January update will be released as scheduled. Look out for more information on this during the first week of January.
• MS 2 will be discussing key improvement ideas starting in January. A few ideas are getting locked in now, but they require more review to ensure the changes will be effective.
• While they are working on the changes, they will also be running events to help players make faster progress with the current systems and structures.
• MS 2 are going to have their next expansion next summer, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be making smaller updates before then. MS 2 will continue to add content and make improvements to MapleStory 2 throughout the year.
You will get more detailed information before they make any final decisions and move forward with changes. Please, stay tuned in 2019 for more!
