    You can download when name reserve goes up ONLY IF you bought a founder's pack. If so, this will be at 10:00am PST tomorrow.

    Yeah but why would the download come out the same time as the name reserve? If this is true I hope the file isn't big

    As long as you have the initial game installed beforehand, the preliminary version won't take long to download.

    We haven't been told any information about when the preliminary download will be distributed or if it's already been given out. Hopefully this will be resolved by the time reservations come or it could mean trouble for the PR.

    The patch for the updated client is available now. Open up your Nexon launcher to update the game before the servers go live tomorrow for name reservations.

    Thanks, you may tell Cuddles next time that it's not hard to provide an estimate or even just clarify that it would be available prior or even just tell if they have no clue.

    @Akuma524 Website says PDT , not PST. It's an hour difference , don't want anyone getting confused.

    This seems a bit odd. I got an email saying to keep an eye out on the site for when you can download it, but there is no announcement yet saying that you could. Don't you think it would make sense to mention this on the main site? Or even send out another email saying it's now ready?

    I don't know if my client is updated, I've logged out and repaired installation, Is everyone else getting "Maplestory 2 is currently in maint, Please try again later."

    Pretty sure that means it's already updated. It says that because you can't access the game yet. Says the same for me after I updated if I try to click play.

    Indeed, the same issue for me at the moment. There was 42.6 MB patch available in the morning and I've downloaded it early without any issues, it seems like there was additional patch in the meantime since "Play" changed into "Update" button and it's showing "This product cannot be installed." error message. Patience is the key as maybe Nexon Launcher will start working correctly soon before opening of name reservation procedure. Uninstalling or any re-installing process of the game would be the last thing I'd recommend now.
    Kind regards!

    they should definitely release that patch b4 the name reservation comes in to play it won't be really fair for everyone to get names if they have to wait for a patch

    P.S: Least i know i dint break it :D

    That's good to know that this was something they did on purpose instead of thinking I broke the launcher because it's stuck on update now.

    I wish they would've told us about this beforehand or gave us some sort PSA ahead of time instead of having to get it through another fellow forum member. RIP the unknowing people who aren't active on the forums and haven't seen this yet or tried to reinstall the game thinking that it was a bug and have to download the entire game again when it's time.
