MapleRoyals — The Nostalgic MapleStory

As some of you may alrdy know through my Facebook, Twitter & Snapchat, I started playing Maple again since early June. The gap between the first time I played Maple until now? 2006~2015; 9 long years (o__o)

Mom asked, “you rewind time back to high school?” Lawl.

Reminds me so much of the days I used to just camp in front of my desktop after school either chatting in fm, slacking around or training hard (o__o) I would also play till it's super late & can't get up the next morning, hence skipping school happily & continued playing, lolol. It was just so addictive & many of my rl friends were playing too. Literally everyone was into it & was such a hot topic.

******

Few months ago, my friends & I downloaded the original MapleSEA due to nostalgic feeling but to my unexpected disappointment, I disliked it due to the huge change. What's the point playing when basically everyone's lvl is so high cos of the new super easy exp? NO CHALLENGE. Even if you make it to lvl 200 (it's the max), so what? EVERYONE is lvl 200. Ntg special.

Get the drift?

& thr were so many other new n different jobs, I wasn't used to that at all. Although the new skills are really godlike & must be fun lol. But like I said what's the point when the players in the whole server are just as good? :/

I still miss the old nostalgic times. Old maps, old jobs, the party quests. So, I decided to ditch & uninstall. I admit that I also sulked a bit to my boyfriend like a little girl (´・_・`) Lol shhh.

Then, bbCherry told me that her brother found a server called MapleRoyals. I asked her if it's the same as the 2006 server aka my memories (much exaggeration right me hahahaha) & she said YES so I was like, IS THIS REAL (O__O) Downloaded it right away & have been playing ever since.

Non stop....

I started off w 7 friends (bf, Mabel, Jack, Cherry, Villi, Nana, Akem) but I'm the only one who survived this until today, lol. At lvl 2X/4X/5X they sort of gave up & gone inactive. Oh my heart it breaks~~ I was left alone (much exaggeration again)

******

Check out some of my screenshots!!

WARNING: These might make you miss Maple too if you played before, haha.

Got my Zhelm :D INT 17. Thankyou, le guildies ♥

4th job adv, which I never managed to reach before. Officially a Bishop! :D And no doubt, my choice is the Magician > Cleric > Priest again. Just like the old times (: My char is in all PINK ♥♥♥

In 2006 I only got to 3rd job. & this is bcos now in Royals it's 4X exp. I think it's perfect; not too slow & not too fast. The old SEA's exp slowly crawled by like a tortoise. No, wait, even a tortoise is faster than that, believe me. F3 it was so suffering.

Untitled

Whoa & what is this?!

I could actually transform into a Green Cornian (never even gotten the chance to know what this is last time) to trick the Gatekeeper into letting me enter HTPQ. On a quest to getting bishop's genesis skill btw. Which is so awesome.

Untitled

W a random stranger next to me who asked a favor fr us to help him get in too. & thankyou SK fr helping me throughout the ENTIRE process from A to Z. Couldn't have done it without you.

Untitled

Kerning PQ, anyone? Such reminiscence ♥ When so many ppl used to camp outside next to the NPC on every channel waiting to go in. Auto clickers were also used fr higher chances lol.

Untitled

The above is Stage 1. Killing crocos & getting tix! In this server, any lvl can still enter lol & my guildies and I were bored at that time so we picked one lucky low lvl to help him just fr fun.

  1. Really, a great story. I've been quitting and playing and quitting and playingi Maple Royals haha.. Now I made a big quit and had given ALL my stuff (worth2bill+) and my 1bill to a guild mate. But I feel I MUST become lvl 200 with Maple Story, only then my mind will be at peace.

    I've been playing since 2006 until 2011/12 Then me and my good friend quit maple because of the big changes that were coming in, all the time. It sucked.

    So I know Maple Royals for 2-3 years now and like it a lot. Can't believe so many people still play it (even more than before).

    I will be starting at Christmass again, after my exams and everything. + I'm voting every day so it'll be some gachaing that I will be doing :D - just to have a good start.

    Wish you the best xx
