In an interview last year was carried out to the Nexon group. One of the highlighted questions is as below.
Lastly, how do you top this update? What can players expect in 2011?
Looking ahead to 2011, we have some very exciting updates for MapleStory. Some new zones and Party Quests are scheduled for this spring as well as some exclusive new content to celebrate GlobalMapleStory‘s sixth anniversary. And this summer we are looking forward to bringing Chaos to the Maple World with even more class refinements and the long awaited addition of PvP. Of course, it’s too early to give dates or details, but Big Bang is by no means the last big addition to MapleStory.

I’m jealous. At this rate, we MSEAers wont be getting Chaos 6-9months after GMS which is in 2012 because Asiasoft (AS) just loves to launch patches during the holidays to “promote higher frequency of players”. Right. So i’m going to estimate that we (MSEAers) will only get the Chaos patch March 2012. 🙂 Thanks AS, you’re the best.
I mean if they REALLY want to increase the “frequency” of players in-game, launch the bloody patches or updates not in conjunction with the holidays. The kids will play regardless of when they release the patch and the adults would spend more NOT in conjunction with the school holidays. That way, the stream of frequency of players would be constant and the occasional hike during school holidays.
I may not be a marketer or a manager but from a consumers point of view, just launch the bloody patches instead of making us wait 6 months. For heavens sake.
That was me ranting.
On a different note, AS is trying to promote their @Key again.
From 1st April 2011 to 30th April 2011, players can purchase ONE @Key device for a promotion price of 15,000 @Cash!
That’s not all, you will be able to purchase TWO @Key devices for a promotion price of 28,000 @Cash!
Free delivery worth 3,500 @Cash included as well!
Want to know more about @Key? Check out the details below!
I may purchase it next week just to see how effective and convenient this is. But the thought of “What if i lose my @Key device” wonders in my mind.
Happy Mapling guys.
Though theres not much to do in-game anyway.
