Nothing special to talk about today (5-hour site maintenance, and NO updates) so I’ll just briefly guide you on how you can apply to KMST. This term will be very exciting because it includes many summer updates (Return of the Legends for sure, perhaps even PVP revamp, and so on) which, as we know, are much more exciting than any other update. The term will run from May 1st until summer, they didn’t really specify when. Applications are due by the 24th.
Requirements: A KMS account with a level 10+ character. You must also set your main character (which is straightforward).
Step 1: Open up Internet Explorer and navigate to http://maplestory.nexon.com/MapleStory/Page/Gnx.aspx?URL=News/NoticeBoard&maskPageType=2&oidArticle=87627.
Click on this button at the bottom:
Step 2: Input your e-mail address (any e-mail address, doesn’t necessarily have to be the one you used to register) and click on the left button (신청하기):
Step 3: You’re done! Now just wait till the results are up which will be, whenever.
Good luck everyone! Hopefully this term will be actually exciting.
P.S. – I’m kind of late (I was actually not going to talk about it, but the lack of rages/cries in popular MapleStory forums forced me to) but Thailand MapleStory is about to shut down. If you recall, Brazil MapleStory shut down not too long ago because Level Up! Games didn’t really love the game’s performance (1 update in 6 months, yeah what did you expect?). Now, AsiaSoft is also leaving Taiwan MapleStory. You can read more about it here.
What does this mean? End of KMS/GMS? No, Nexon still holds strong. However, MSEA is also kind of in trouble. I fear that, if the economic crisis continues, MSEA will be shut down as well.
