On behalf of the players, mods did check with the maple admins on the issue of having BBP (Big Bang Patch) asap for everyone.
Having BBP (Big Bang Patch) is not as easy as it seems as the patch preparation will take MUCH longer than a normal patch with events or a patch with new class, example Evan or Dual Blade.
A normal patch with events or new maps/new boss will take 4-8 weeks of preparation.
A patch with new class (including maps, boss, etc) will take 6-12 weeks of preparation.BBP consist of:
- Overall change of most maps
- Modify of all exsisting classes (adventurers, KOC, Aran, Evan, Dual Blade)
- Modify of all mobs
- Change of Interface
- New Classes (Not only 1 class…well…you all should know how many are there)
- New quests and maps
As you all know, BBP is the most complicated and the patch with the most changes EVER.
The Admins are unable to reveal how long the preparation will takes, but they are already working on it for some time. Right after DB patch.
Some of you may think MapleSEA can just port the data over from other services which already released BBP.
But in actual fact, each MapleStory service is unique in serveral or many ways which make it near to impossible to simply “Copy and Paste” BBP over.
The above stated points are only in-game contents and not including serveral technical problems like for example, OS compatibility issues which they are trying to solve as well. Like what one of you commented, its more of a global issue happening to other services as well.
Hope this will clear some doubts and please give the team that is working on MapleSEA BBP some moral support and some time to provide a BBP with the best satisfactory results to everyone.
There you have it.
There’s no point in rushing because results would normally be under par if rushed. So just sit down, relax, and we shall wait for the Big Bang Patch to arrive, fully ready, fully complete so that we can all enjoy it without a glitch.
PS: I think you’ve noticed the theme change of my blog. I thought I’d change things up since the Gregorian Calander New Year and since Chinese New Year is approaching. How time flies. Hope you all like it. 🙂
