A popular online MMORPG based in Seoul, South Korea. The game has 50 million players worldwide, topping Ragnarok Online and Runescape combined. MapleStory is very unique it its on way. For example, the name of the game represents the fact that the maple tree supposedly disappeared from Korea, and the fact that one can show facial expressions through his/her/its character. The game can also be noted for its quality graphics (can be toggled).

The game has a (relatively) simple user interface that's easy to learn. That's what I found out the second I started playing.

When you crate your new character(s), he/she is automatically level 1. By training or doing quests, you can level up and get stronger. The max level is 200. Nobody in the game ever reached level 200.

Unlike some other MMORPGs, you don't choose your job or path in the beginning. There are five jobs: beginner, warrior, bowman, thief, and magician. You are automatically a beginner when you create your character, and can choose to become any of the other four later on. Some just stay a beginner, who are often called perman00bs.

There are three islands in the world of MapleStory--Maple Island (where you begin), Victoria Island (the island where you make the job advancement), and Ossyria Island (an island designed mainly for mid-high leveled people). On Ossyria, there is sub-continent called Ludibrium (Ludi), which is toy-themed. You can call it a continent of its own if you want.

There are three types of maps--town, field, and dungeon. Town maps often contain NPCs and shops. Field maps and dungeons usually contain monsters, the latter usually with a higher spawn rate and stronger monsters.

Training is basically killing monsters for experience (EXP). You need EXP to level up and get stronger. You can form parties (up to six in one)to help you train. Depending on how you look at it, training can be f-cking boring or very exciting.

This is not all of what MapleStory is and what you need to know about it. If you wanna know more, create an account and play.
(based on statistics, not bias)
A guy distributes a poll to ten online gamers. He wants to know which is the best of the three : MapleStory, Runescape, or Ragnarok Online.

Six say MapleStory.
Three say Ragnarok.
One says Runescape.

A MMORPG that millions of people play, but hate. It's just addictive... No one likes it, but you can't stop playing. It's like they put nicotine in it or something.
(Character around lvl 50): "Maplestory SUCKS!"
(Noob): "Then quit..."
(lvl 50 Character): "I CAN'T IT'S TOO ADDICTING!!!!!"

an addicting game in which you can't quit once you start unless you get hacked. repetetive..but some consider fun if fun is killing snails for the first 8-10 levels.full of names like LiLvIeTbO1 and AzNpRyDe. this game ruins your life. trust me i know. once you start playing, if you go to school, your grades drop down a lot.

- An elaborate chat room, decorated by mushrooms and retards. -

You know those annoying little girls next door that never stop screaming?

You know those spiky haired blonde boys down the street, whose wealthy WASP parents and, far too busy to monitor how big of a fat bastard asswipe, that their kids are turning into, between SUV trips to soccer practice?

You know that group of screeching sixteen year old's who won't shut the fuck up about Naruto?

You know that jail bait whose profile picture is a conveniently faceless, cropped image of her Punky Brewster quality, early bloomer tits but, has a personality attached to a presence that you'd gladly replace with a starving, feral weasel up your own ass?

You know that Azn kid who screams "Pinoy Powa, Kstyle4lyfe!" and totally pwns nubs with broken English, all the time?
The one who wants to grow up to be a professional video game fighter?
The one who can "cancel" and "exploit" his way, out of nine incoming fireballs but, not his parent's basement?

You know that -begging to be punched in the throat-fucker, in the knit cap, and a short sleeve shirt, over a long sleeve shirt, over a short sleeve shirt, with his bangs covering his eyes in all the pouty, poorly angled, slightly out of focus, poorly lit, cel phone shots of himself in the bathroom, on his barely readable due to a shitty font on top of a shittier background-TKO'ed Myspace?

You know that seventeen year old, who spikes his hair like Goku and runs up and down the street, shooting imaginary Kamehameha's at passing cars?

You know that chode, who will be inevitably ganking lowbies in the starter areas of World of Warcraft a few years from now, with seemingly impossible, diminished grammar?

You know the kids that you'd put aside your possible love of children and/or innocence to crush into a ball of dripping flesh and compressed bone, with your bare hands, if it were physically plausible and legally acceptable?

Well guess what Nancyboy, they're all here! Yeehawww!
And you can't touch 'em!

Did I mention the mods are biased shit bags who favor nexon cash users and their own friends?

Do you like the idea of a poorly controlled game of right and left moving, big headed retards, pressing the three attack buttons endlessly to level up with a system that only rewards the lifeless wasted time of a nation of people who have been known to die playing games for too long?

Do you like the idea of getting "pwned" by a fourteen year old boy, who is simultaneously tapping his super attacks while jamming his dick into the face of his little sister's Barbie doll -whose best and, only material, is "lol n00b phayle u mad"?

Do want to hang out with little kids who just discovered 4chan?

Do you want a message board so bad, that viewing it has, more or less, the same affect as opening the Arc of the Covenant with the sole intent on using it as a makeshift toilet?

Do you like the idea of slaughtering the same poorly drawn monkey and his family repeatedly for a month just for half a level?

Do you have absolutely no other responsibilities or activities with which to "dedicate" yourself to? Would you then be interested in dedicating yourself to a video game? How about a really shitty one?

Enjoy crap?

Then sign up for MS today!
Maple Story is awesome, if you really want to know what Hitler is up to right now.

A game with the simplest, yet most addicting objective ever: Leveling up to level up some more.
l337H4x: Yeah I'm almost level 50 in Maplestory!
LegitNub: What're you going to do at level 50?
l337H4x: Get to level 51, duhh
LegitNub: Oh...

Steaming pile of shit. Highly addictive. More so than heroine. It's literally torture. Unfortunately, all the "players" they talk of in their ad's are just depressed children (and some creepy ass adults) who can't get off the drug...
Depressed Kid- "Dad, go to the store and buy me some Nexon cash!"

Dad- "Well son, I've already spend 500 dollars on Nexon cash for you this month. Can't you go without it for a little while?

Depressed Kid- "Dad shut the fuck up or I'll beat your ass again! Now go to the store!"

Dad- "Son, it's just that...well...you seem to have been acting differently since you've been playing that game. You're locked in your room all day. You don't even use the bathroom anymore, you just have a bucket which you empty out the window onto our neighbors car. The family misses you at the dinner table...please...I want my son back....what have you done Maplestory?!?!"

Depressed Kid- "Ok bitch, I fucking warned you" *beats Dad's ass and steals credit card* "Haha now I can have all the Nexon Cash I ever need...God I hate my life..."

An MMORPG game similar to Runescape, but has way more players. Once you start, you cannot stop. Has many differnt servers (e.i Windia, Scania, Bera, Kradia, Bellocan, Mardia, and many more depending on which type of MapleStory you play). Different types for each part of the world; GMS(MapleStory Global), EMS(MapleStory Europe), KMS(Korea),MSEA(South East Asia), and more.

You start out as a beginner in the game and level with ease. Once you get to level 8 you can become an magician, at level 10 you can become a warrior, thief, or archer. If you choose you can stay a beginner. With each level you gain, leveling becomes harder.

You can buy Nexon Cash(NX cash) to "pimp out" your character. You can get married, have a pet, make friends, make enemies, but most of all, make a new life.

You will have two separate lives, but mostly users prefer their maple life.

Pro: nuuuuuuu *gives mesos*
Noob: 1K OMG I R TEH RICHNESS
