MapleStory 2 is getting really close to launch, you guys

THE HEAD

With its second closed beta run and done, MapleStory 2 is turning its sights to something bigger. Something grander. Something… launch-ier.

Nexon said that it’s going to announce the launch date for this 3-D sequel to the hit MapleStory on August 21st. “Not only will we reveal the official release date, but our team will also discuss the future content schedule of the game,” the developer said.

In the meantime, players can start reserving their names and even create their first character so that they can hit the ground running when MapleStory 2 launches. You’ll need to buy a founder’s pack to access this perk, however. It’s probably a good thing that Nexon has made these packs available for purchase again!

Oh, and MapleStory 2 will be at Pax West:

Already confirmed to be P2W by a poster that played in Korea. It has a Nexon Logo on it. Why are people doing this to themselves? You’ve already seen how this movie ends.

At this point name reservation has been open since yesterday – and names go *fast* so I wouldn’t really expect your name to still be there. Especially the way they did it here. You can register a single name on each server – including servers overseas. So there are people who register the name they like on two US Servers, Europe, Oceania, South America, basically all across the entire world even though they’ll only be playing in one (or maybe two) areas.

So people in Europe and Brazil who got on first blocked names on the US server they felt like blocking, and people in the US who got on first blocked names in all these other countries on the other side of the world as well – just “because”.

And that basically is their excuse. “Because so many other people are doing it”, “Because we can”, “just because” – and not because they might want to play there. If you’re not sure which of a few servers you’re going to play on, that’s an entirely different story – but a lot of the people registered on all the servers despite knowing they’d never play on most of the overseas ones.

If you’re the one doing it, I guess you feel justified somehow. If your name is taken by a player on the other side of the world who will never log onto the server ever after that (and never intended to, and knew that they wouldn’t), that’s not such a great feeling.

If I could, I would transport the hair options from this game into every other game ever.

To me it was not that puzzling why the Founder Packs were taken down for a while. They felt that their CB phase at that time was full up and didn’t want to add any more people to it – and those Founder Packs all came with CB access, so they took them down a bit until that CB phase ended.

Obviously you can’t run out of digital founder packs, but they didn’t want many more people joining the beta phase for some reason (maybe the server structure just really wasn’t in place yet for how many people they let in added together with how many people were buying Founder Packs). That’s the entire reason they went down, and they have been back up since directly after that beta phase ended.

This going to be one of those insanely popular world wide things that will puzzle and bewilder me, isn’t it…..

…I was under the impression that 2 wasn’t doing all that well. And this is likely forcing the game to branch out to other markets. Hence, the West!

Personally though, I awaiting to see if I have to jump through multiple Steam based hoops before before I bother looking into this game. But when I do, I am expecting to be stuck in the character creator poking at all those pigtail sliders…leaving me with the hunch that this may be the best part of the game. o.O

Hmm. I’ll have to check into it. I just assumed it would be a huge hit.
