How many of you Maplers destroyed your wallet?

I remember when I started playing MS, I spent so much cash it completely dried up my wallet.
I don't know how to describe how addicted I was with the cash pixels. I still don't regret it... perhaps slightly.
But, I was a dumb kid back then. I'll still probably make the same mistake depending on how addicted I get with this game again. Sob.

    I didn't really have much of a wallet to spend the first time around. Even when they released the NX marketplace and I made a bunch of money off other people's wallets getting destroyed, it was limited what I spent on. But I guess it did add up to a little bit. Never going to understand people buying megaphones to spam the alphabet one letter at a time, for instance, but I did invest in some permanent attire and pets when they came around. Also, Safety Charm MVP for high level grinding.

    True, I've spent most of my cash on surgeries and cute attires. But, it's been adding up over the years of playing Maplestory. :(

    Don't remind me... but I've spent so much over the course of 8 years. Sometimes I look back and regret it, but sometimes I don't. I get how you feel.

    I just hope this game doesn't become some cash cow. I don't want the flashbacks to trigger me again. Lol

    Back then I was addicted to too many games at once, so my money was spread pretty thin.

    This time it's not so complicated, and more money to use. So farewell wallet..

    Looks like I'm the only one so far who voted for #2. Feel like a stingy outsider now :p

    I was still somewhat young when MapleStory first came out, so destroying my wallet wasn't really an option until way later on when it turned into a game I hardly recognize.
    I'm looking forward to MapleStory 2 because at least then I'll have a fresh start of things, won't feel so lost with tons of overwhelming amounts of content, and I have a job to fill my wallet that will immediately get thrown at my computer screen.

    It's pretty nice that we have a job for us to be able to support a game we enjoy playing as well as dressing our cute avatars. Let us all hope that we will have enough to support our own life as well. Sob.

    I did buy NX in advance though, I have 19k atm so I'll be good once the game comes out

    I spent some money back in my Maple days, but money was always tight as a teen.
    If i'd guesstimate how much I spent on just Maple I'd say a couple hundred just for some fashion.

    Never really destroyed my own wallet since I was 12 or so at the time. My mom, though...? Yeah, her wallet didn't stand a chance.

    That's the perk of having a parent that loves the game more than you do. XD

    I spent little by little in MS1 looking for royal hairs and possibly some permanent NX, otherwise I'm not a huge money spender on the game.

    Same I use to spend a lot when I was younger. Now that i'm older and have cash i'll be a bit more generous spending money as long as it isn't P2W. I have no problem paying money for cosmetics and stuff but we'll see.

    Didn't spend much on ms1. I just waited for perma items or grinded events for perma items. Only thing I really bought were the odd merchants for the fm (or whatever they were called) to merch :)

    ALSO that red envelope event they had where you got random hair/face. Ahh that was so much fun and so satisfying when you got something you liked

    I'm just going to treat it like a subscription based mmo and use that as my baseline for spending, seems reasonable i reckon

    The way I feel about mmos is as long as your having fun doesn’t matter how much you spend

    I still remember being too young to have a card to use or any way to get a prepaid card. But I'm ready to break my wallet this time around! ^_^
