MapleStory Hi-Five!

Nexon e-Sports Stadium

Today’s the day!! In just a few hours, the MapleStory private showcase: Hi-Five will begin! It will take place from 3:30 PM – 4:45 PM KST. We will almost certainly get a good look at this year’s summer update, and probably a preview of 5th job.

I will be updating this post as news is released, so keep checking back~ All of my information/pictures will be from users posting on Insoya so a big thanks to them for sharing!


Hi-Five Itinerary

Here is the itinerary for the event!

Section Time Program
Part 1 3:30 ~ 3:35 (5 minutes) Opening Greetings
3:35 ~ 3:55 (20 minutes) Hi-Five Quiz
3:55 ~ 4:15 (20 minutes) Maple Voice Show
Part 2 4:15 ~ 4:35 (20 minutes) Launchpad Performance
4:35 ~ 4:45 (10 minutes) Closing Remarks

I feel like the big part of it is going to be in the ‘Maple Voice Show’?

Showcase Screen

They’re finally letting everyone in! A little more than half an hour left until it starts.

They’re giving out little goodie bags including a fill in the blank 4-panel manhwa, a clapper, a pen, and some cute MapleStory candies.

Pink Bean will be patiently watching as well haha.

They started off with the quiz show, with a few larger questions followed by 8 quicker questions like: “How many fingers does Zakum have in total?” haha.

Now the Maple Voice Show is going to begin. From left to right, you can see the host of the event and then the voices of Phantom, Cygnus, and Luminous respectively.

Phantom's Past

They’re live voicing the ‘Phantom’s Past’ video! They even did a take where the VA of Luminous spoke instead of Phantom haha.

4 Panel

And now they’re reading out some of the manhwas that people have filled out.

They did the launchpad performance where a DJ remixed some MapleStory music.

MapleStory V

    Hi max. A Launchpad is basically a musical instrument that functions like a soundboard! You may have even heard a pretty popular song made using one of these neat little devices, called Pop Culture by Madeon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTx3G6h2xyA

    I’d reckon it’ll be a medley of maple music and I REALLY hope it’s recorded cause i’ll have to kick someone’s ass if they play leafre and Raindrop flower in the same medley and it’s not recorded.

    Also you can mess with the lights and have certain keys set to play certain light patterns, and i’m sure they’ll ham that up.

      Ohhhh that’s what those things are called. That’s pretty cool. Nexon is pretty great with the music, like that live orchestra thing last time they had a conference like this, it’ll probably be awesome!

        Yeah nobody really gave them a name until more recently. a couple years ago I think, till then most people I know just called them musical soundboards.

        Shhhh, keep this a secret.

    Does anyone know if 5th job is just one skill or is it multiple?

    • Max
      June 26, 2016 at 5:22 am

      I think it is just 1 skill + the V Matrix system

    Do you have any idea what the “Mega Burning Project” is that was mentioned in the video? It seems to imply that you’ll get 3 levels per level up up to 130, and doesn’t say event anywhere near it? Is that going to be permanent?

    • Max
      June 26, 2016 at 5:23 am

      It is an event, and it’s the same as previous Burning events except it goes up to level 130 this time.

    • Anonymous

      Seems like it’s the take V event, and it’s a normal burning event but to 130 instead of 100 (link skill farming, hoooooo), cause this is the 13th year.

    Why there’s no Kanna, Hayato, Beast Tamer and Jett/Zen?

      They don’t exist on KMS. Wait for JMS to get the patch, or GMS, and you’ll get what you seek.

    • Maplestory
      June 26, 2016 at 5:21 am

      That’s because those classes do not exist in KMS (Korea Maplestory)

      GMS has a lot of things which KMS does not.

      North American’s and their funny ways of writing dates.

      Why not make it logical with either DD/MM/YYYY or YYYY/MM/DD lol

      I was like, theres a 14th month at the start?

        Whatever your country use to write dates, may not be what other countries use. On the other hand, maybe it’s your country that is illogical in using a different sequence from Korea?
