Here’s What Has Happened to MapleStory Now

Remember MapleStory? It was the game most, if not all, kids played back then. And it was all we could talk and think about. 

We bragged about our levels, made our first boyfriend/girlfriend in the game and made plans to hang out with friends within the game. It was like Facebook, just more fun.

So it’s 2016 now and I can’t help but wonder, what happened to MapleStory? Is it still alive? Read on to find out more about what happened to our favourite game.


MapleStory is still alive and kicking

YES! That’s the golden question answered: the game is still alive! In fact, your cute chibi character still exists! Time to log in and relive some childhood memories, if you still remember your password, that is.

Even better call up some of your childhood buddies and ask if they’re interested in a game of MapleStory or two over the weekends. Grab a few cans of beer and set things up in a person’s house.

But don’t be shocked because just like you, the game has changed over the years. 


The most important aspect of the game disappeared

The part that made the game so fun for us back then was the social aspect of the game. People just logged into the game and hung around places like Henesys to chat with online friends. Sometimes, people played together so much they decided to meet IRL too.

People said MSN took over from mIRC but I prefer to think it’s MapleStory. But not anymore. In 2016, the hangout spot at Henesys was so empty you’d think everyone has quitted the game. 

According to people who has kept up with the game since 2007, MapleStory seemed to have abandoned the social factor and focused on the solo aspects of the game. Party play at various places like Stronghold, Monster Park and Crimsonwood were removed, together with the family/mentor system.
