Fresh and New Server?
Hi so im wondering if I should return back to this game. I havent played in years
but I dont just want to start on a server with rich maxed level players.
Im looking to level and compete with players that do not have multiple years of gametime
headstart from me. I know of other sidescroller mmos that release new servers every few months
or so which is what i like as it keeps new players on a somewhat fair level.
Does this ever happen with this game, is it rare when it does?
A maplestory player discuss:
I know it's your personal preference but, maple is not the kind of game to be competing with other (random) players on. Even if a new server were made, there are people who can get to lv200 in like a day. Their experience in other servers would also already put them at such an advantage over actually new players that it wouldn't be a competition. Continually releasing new servers is terrible for a game's social health. It divides the players too much and with a game like maple, where you can't really see how many people exist on that world, it just makes it that much harder for new players to choose where to go. GMS had to combine many servers because of this and they don't even have as many as KMS.
I hope Maple never releases a new server again. There is, however, a different kind of server in KMS which may arrive in GMS relatively soon. iirc it'll start just like a normal new server meaning everyone creating new chars. If you want to stick around, learn the game, and wait for "reboot world" to come out then you'll be able to gain the knowledge of the game needed to somewhat compete when it comes out. Other than that, your best bet is to find friends that have also just started and race with them.
