    I'm gonna skip, a single hour of school is pointless. MS2 beta however, is crucial to your future.

    Well.. You dont have to skip school

    If you have a smartphone, just access the website on your phone and do the quiz under your table.

    Just hope that you don't get caught by the teachers

    My school confiscates phone at the start of the school day then gives them back at the end of the day.

    Obviously it's not worth skipping school for. Shame on you who voted Yes!

    First off, you're not even guaranteed a spot even if you make it. You can't ensure that you're one of the first 10,000, the site will get spammed.
    Second, you are probably going to get invited anyway. There are still 2 rounds left of invites and almost everyone is guaranteed to get in one way or another. Nexon is creating meaningless hype for the time being. They aren't interested in omitting people that are genuinely interested.
    Third, it's not even that important. The closed beta lasts for a week. You'll get all other rewards anyway and everything will be wiped. You aren't missing out on much should worst come to worst.

    Putting a game over school is a dangerous path to walk. As most people in this forum are actually 20+ as I understand it, I think you should show our youth a bit more responsibility. Sure, it doesn't hurt to skip half a school day for this, but seriously, it's not worth it. Focus on your education; it's important!!

    @Nimero Do you have to give out your phone or can you claim that you forgot it at home?

    I really hope the people who said yes were joking. :/ Real life is always more important than gaming. Take care of your responsibilities first. Even if you don't get into the closed beta, open beta won't be that much more of a wait.

    If you just can't resist, at least go for part of the day. The quiz'll only take a couple minutes.

    I'll just say self-control :D
    but it's your life, you do whatever you feel like doing, but be ready to deal with the consequences *dramatic*

    Skipping school for a game is a very slippery slope that you don't want to fall down. Once you've set the precedent for yourself, it's only going to get worse from there.

    I think there can be a healthy balance between gaming and school/real life responsibilities. If you guys decide to skip just one day or even just like 1 hour of school for it, I don't think it's such a huge deal as long as you know there isn't something super important happening on that day. Just don't make it a habit, and you'll be fine.

    I know I've skipped classes and stuff back in the day anyway so I have no room to judge people who skip class for this tomorrow morning.

    School more important mang. Don't let a game ruin your education.

    Education is far more important because there is only one chance at a lifetime to become something that you desire to be.
    Besides MapleStory 2 is just there for rightful distraction at times and the game itself is not going anywhere for you to miss out the chance to play it.

    If you're capable of balancing school and your gaming life you should not be punished for it. Tell them you need your phone today to sign up for CBT.

    Or maybe you can get someone to do it for you at home where you can login for them.
