So today, Nexon released another GM blog with more details on Big Bang.
There’s not too much that was new, but some key points were:
-Big Bang WILL be released by the end of this year
-The coding structure of Maplestory will be changed
-The game will be very, very different.
-Tespia will be open again this fall to test out Big Bang (good luck on getting chosen!)
-Some of the KMS updates WILL NOT be put on GMS
What I think will be best is the coding changes. Depending on how much they redo the coding, Maplestory may have a much smaller memory footprint and run more efficiently than before. It will also (probably) no longer require elevated privileges (run as admin) to play, only to patch–just like Vindictus.
I hope I can get into Tespia… although I probably shouldn’t… finals will screw me over if I play too much. It would be awesome though. :]
Most of what they said sounded similar to KMS’s update, but there is one significant choice in the current Big Bang poll that I believe was not mentioned in KMS–Improved Quest-driven leveling. This sounds interesting, and could make Maplestory less grind-based and shift it towards a storyline.
There’s little to nothing out about GMS’s Big Bang update, but I’ll post whatever I can.
On a completely different note, I can equip my last unwelcome guest dagger/kataras now and Royal Guard/Spear Pepes drop Enhancement scrolls.
I blew up my Dragon’s Tail so I had to get a new Blood Dagger -_-‘
It’s 111 attack now with 5 more from potential, I think that’s pretty decent.
