I posted the following on the Maplers of Tria Contest, but I know it'll get buried, and I have even more screenshots I didn't get to include in that entry.
I'm really posting this more for posterity than for the contest. I'm extremely proud of my Yoshi. I'm proud of how strong he is, how awesome his gear is, how badass his house is, and how sick his clothing looks. I spent hours throwing houses around in Perion to unlock the hammocks, I got a Priest all the way to level 50 just for the Sanctified Purple dye, and I did the Fire Dragon raid fifteen times to afford all of the best items in the game. I mastered fishing, mastered piano playing, and got every life skill as high as I could in the week I had. I found a bunch of penguin friends, earned almost 450 trophies, explored every corner of Victoria Island, and I even met some really cool people that I know I'll keep in touch with when the game launches.

I don't know how long it'll be before I get to play him again, and I know that the next time I see him, he won't be quite the same. Maybe it's weird, but I really will miss him, even after just a week of playing. I can't help but get a lump in my throat thinking about the fact that he's going to be wiped with all the other CBT characters and sent to MapleStory heaven.

I played the original MapleStory for a really long time, and it was a huge part of my childhood. I wish I had screenshots of those days, but I don't. I decided not to make the same mistake again, so here I am, taking screenshots of my very first character in GMS2. Screenshots that will live in this thread, if not elsewhere, forever. May his memory never die.

I implore everyone to take some screenshots of their CBT Archers for posterity and post them here where the characters memories will survive long past their deletion.

    Your dedication is stunning as always. You'll remain my spiritual role model for sure! I'm glad you managed to live and capture all those moments despite the fact that they completely screwed over OCE with the servers. I'm curious, which server did you end up playing on? Would be cool to meet you sometime.
    May 11 This is going to be my new favourite MS2 beta moment. I love how they kept this map perfectly in sync with the old game and visiting there with my old friend was amazing.

    May 12 Randomly caught a pet when passing by Tria after we'd been fishing with no results the day before. After I advised her to do auto-fishing though, she got a few :p

    As soon as I started wearing this pink costume I immediately won my first OX quiz and then after that I won Spring Beach. :D

    Hunting world bosses with good high positioning. (Yes I recoloured the set. Mostly for the trophies though!)

    What does a dedicated Archer play for his alt? Another Archer, of course! This character was for rushing content on whenever my friend wasn't available. Doesn't mean I couldn't also win another minigame or ten on the way! Crazy Runners is definitely my favourite.

    May 16 My friend didn't make it for the closing, so I donned my Day 8 costume to show off my attendance and played a little song near my plot in Ellinia.

    Ended up with almost 300 screenshots over 7 days! I better start being careful again... or not... may the memories live on!

    <3 I played on NA. That's usually the lowest ping.

    Aw, that's a shame. I'm glad I can still follow your adventures across the forums. Looking forward to the next update of your skill guide as well~
