The Big Bang patch has been confirmed to be on the 18th of May 2011 announced by a GMD in-game and on the facebook page of MapleSEA.
The countdown starts now. 😀
MapleSEA is organising a donation drive for the earthquake/tsunami that happened in Japan. Let’s help them out. 2k@cash is not a lot for those of you who buy @cash. Yes, you may think “moneysoft” but by advertising such a donation drive with the name of the Japanese Red Cross Society it is an infringement of rights if they don’t donate proceeds to the Japanese Red Cross Society and would be using that oraganisations’ name in vain. I myself am going to donate and i’ll post up the SS soon.
Here’s the message from the AS Admins:
The recent unfortunate incidents happened in Japan have caused the whole world’s attention and concern on the people of Japan, as well as the situation the citizens of Japan are facing.
The world has been ignited with a mass outpouring of sympathy and support for Japan, and we Maplers can now be a part of this global expression of love to help rally some donations to support the tsunami and earthquake relief efforts. Let us all lend a helping hand for these victims.
From 18th March 2011, 1500hrs till 15th April 2011, 2359 hrs (+8 GMT), ALL amount received from the purchase of the Heart-Shaped Chocolate from MapleSEA Cash Shop will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society, in aid of their rescue efforts for those affected by the tragic disasters in Japan.
Donation Drive Duration
Start of Campaign:18th March 2011, 1500hrs (+8 GMT)
End of Campaign:15th April 2011, 2359hrs (+8 GMT)
By purchasing the Heart-Shaped Chocolate which retails for 2,000 Maple Cash in the MapleSEA Cash Shop, you will be making a small but yet significant donation to the Japanese Red Cross Society.
The more hearts you buy, the bigger your heart will be!
• Purchase them for yourself or gift them to your loved ones and do your part for the victims of earthquake and tsunami!
• When in possession in your inventory, a Small Heart will appear above your head which will last for 45 days upon purchased.
• When you have 10 Heart-Shaped Chocolates in your inventory, a Big Heart will appear above your head!
• Every character can hold a maximum of 96 Heart-Shaped Chocolates under Cash Inventory.
So let’s not just pray for Japan, but take this chance to help her and her people! Your kind and generous support will go a very long way. Thank you!

Here’s a reply by one of the MapleSEA Forum Admins regarding the legitimacy of this donation drive:
So guys, donate if you can. We are Asians and we should give aid to our fellow Asians regardless of your race. If you use the word lah in your sentences, to me, you’re SEAsian.
Facing a natural disaster is not a simple feat. There are many obstacles to overcome and with this small donation (Just $2 SGD) it can make a difference to the living conditions of one Japanese citizen.
Lets help them.
Yep. Those two tiny hearts above our heads. We each bought 1 heart shaped chocolate. At least we’re doing our part. What about you?
Don’t forget next week is Earth Hour (26th March 2011) where you should switch off your lights from 8:30pm – 9:30pm wherever you’re living at. Its just ONE HOUR. Show that you care about the earth by saving some energy and watch which of your neighbours don’t.
More updates soon.
