For me, I'm not sure about MS2, but my love for Maplestory circa 2004-2007 demands that I give it a try and keep an open mind. What about you all?

    I have never played Maplestory 1, but this game here looks right up my alley. It reminds me of some older games I use to play, but it has some features Im very excited about. I need a new game to pass the time. It looks so pretty and fun ! ^^

    I played the Korean version 3 years ago and really enjoyed the game. The game was so good that the high ping and language barrier wasn't a big problem

    Maplestory was my first MMO, so I'll give it's legacy a try for sure.
    The other half is that I'm looking for a unique game experience, and I've never tried a game that was made like MS2.

    Skeptical for sure, but ive been anticipating this game since the rumors way back when. Maybe it'll peak my interest for a week or a month, maybe longer. If it doesnt fail me completely then i'll be happy with it.

    I really love the low-polyish look to the game, and as a kid, I had fun trying to model some of the classic Maple mobs in 3D. Also I'm quite nostalgic for all things MS, as it was a big part of my early teenage years back in 2006-2007.

    I played KMS2 for a bit and it was one of the funnest games that I played. I'm sure there were a lot of issues with the game but I was just too excited to experience it for the first time, and now I'm feeling like I was years ago on KMS2 launch day. The hype is too real.

    I never had the chance to play the first Maplestory. When i saw the gamplays of Maplestory 2 i was quite excited. We could say that is a little whim that my inner youth wants to fulfill.

    I adored the art style when I first laid my eyes on it: It is just so expressive! Plus It just looks to be so much fun to play!

    The art has definitely grown on me in just the past couple days of watching videos. I could get used to it. Also excited for the PvP

    I'm at a mix. I'll play any Nexon game once, basically, and I played MapleStory back in 2006 or so.

    I just want to socialize and this looks like a game to do just that. I love the artstyle and the endless possibilities. I hope the global launch is really successful. Need a place to call home.

    I've been playing MS on and off for so many years now, it just seems natural to give it a shot. And really I like the style of the game, Portal Knights which I also play is similarly styled but MS has a lot of unique things going on.

    I enjoyed MS and love the way MS2 looks so that's more than enough to have me hooked on the wait for the game.

    Yeah that's one thing that MS has over any game. The social aspect is just so unique.
