Within 5 days of the 5th job patch, there have been a total of 5 server maintenances and 2 patches because of the immense lag and disconnections taking place in the game.
The first patch was just some bug fixes and some compensation but the one yesterday brought something I don’t think has ever been added before, additional channels!
Maple Inven published a new interview today, with the director of the MapleStory V update! There was a lot of interesting information and I won’t be translating it completely but I will post the big tidbits!
A new patch has been released to the official servers! This one, although it does not contain the 5th job content or changes from the last test server patch, does include many events to prepare everyone for July 14.
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!
5TH JOB TEASER AND HUGE PATCH INFORMATION INSIDE!! THIS WILL BE OUR SUMMER UPDATE AND IT WILL BE COMING TO THE TEST SERVERS RIGHT NOW!!
This patch actually came out a few days ago but honestly MapleStory is really boring right now so I missed it haha. They didn’t even make one of those information center videos this time. Anyways, it’s basically the last test server patch + a couple of events.
On the bright side, only one more week until the Hi-Five showcase!
EDIT: Someone has brought to my attention that Star Planet will be closing! I’ve added a bit more information about this to the post.
On June 26 from 3pm to 5pm at Nexon Arena, Nexon will be hosting a MapleStory private showcase titled Hi-Five! Only 150 people will receive an invitation to the event.
This will probably be our first look at the summer update and maybe even a 5th job teaser? I don’t think it will be released in the summer because it’s going to be a ton of work and they probably will need to test it for a while (I think 4th job was in Tespia for like 6 months?).
