KMS 1.2.376 – MapleStory’s 20th Anniversary: Mapril Island!

April 21, 2023 24 comments

As Max is still on vacation and Kobe is busy with urgent matters, the author for this week’s blog is I, Sunny. In a reversal of roles from last week I would like to thank Kobe for proofreading this post, and Steve, as usual, for the screenshots provided last week. With that said, I hope you all enjoy the changes this patch has brought, and that when the time comes you all are able to enjoy the this event as much as we are.

MapleStory is now 20 years old! The 20th Anniversary, Mapril Island, takes place over the next seven weeks. This patch includes quality of life changes, changes to spell tracing, improvements to the cubing system, and some balancing!

This update has gone live with some changes, and additions, from the Test Server, these differences will be highlighted in red.

KMST 1.2.153 – Cubing Improvements, Spell Tracing Improvements & Content Reorganization

April 13, 2023 28 comments

I would like to start off this post by saying that I am NOT MAX, this is actually Kobe. Max is currently out on vacation until the beginning of May and will not be writing the posts for the first part of the 20th Anniversary Update. I’ve written this post with help from Steve with images and Giga Sunny with some of the translations and proofreading.

This Test Server Update consists of the 20th Anniversary Event, and it’s definitely one of the biggest events this game has ever received. Event details will be covered in next week’s post when the Official Update is released. Outside of the Anniversary patch, there were some very interesting changes with Cubes and Spell Traces, and some pretty small changes across other parts of the game.

Wonki and Changsup, the current head of planning for Maplestory, went live shortly after the Test Server Update was released. They read through the patch notes and talked about how a lot of the plans they had for game improvements were going to be delayed all the way up until June for the Summer Update. It’s a bold move to raise people’s expectations this high considering the backlash they’ve already received this year. It’s going to take an insane Summer Update for them to be able to redeem themselves in the eyes of the community but we’ll see what happens when that time comes.

MapleStory 20th Anniversary Preview

April 4, 2023 17 comments

A new video was uploaded on the MapleStory YouTube channel where they talked about the upcoming 20th anniversary event, changes coming to the game, and a date for the summer update showcase!

Also, just a heads up that I’m going on vacation from next week until the start of May, so I’ll be missing both the test server and official server patches (April 13 and April 20). Some friends might be helping me out by writing the posts for me but that is TBA lol.
