MapleStory 2’s launch did well on Steam, but the Mapleopoly event was a problem

Good news, MapleStory 2 fans, the game did well after its first day on Steam! The chart for the game is obviously not indicative of everyone playing the game (since there are other ways to play the title), but it attracted solid numbers with more than 26,000 playing at launch. Respectable! Pity it then went on to have some notable trouble with one of its launch events, the Mapleopoly game.

What happened was that the reward for fully clearing the board one time was 15 MapleCoins, which was fine in and of itself… except that a trip around the board usually cost that much or less. Thus, to keep things balanced, it was necessary to change that reward to 3 Maple Mushroom potions… which left those who hadn’t yet been clearing the board left out. So everyone who hits level 50 before the event is over will receive 150 MapleCoins for free, thus preserving the experience without leaving things in an unbalanced state. If you’re curious about what has people playing the game at this point, you can check out MJ’s launch-day stream below.

I want to enjoy this game… but my gawd the controls are freaking AWFUL. Another example of devs who have NEVER seen another control setup for another game in their entire life time. Standards exist for a reason.

Same. I quit before the tutorial was finished, only to find out after the tutorial there are keybinding to change. Most of them anyway. My problem is the lack of font and UI scaling. It scales, but not everything.

I know they’ve had problems with steam and people getting an account blocked message. You need to contact support to get it fixed until they can patch it. I didnt have an issue though

Where are you trying to play it through? Steam right?

You can always just play through Nexon. You can link your accounts later once their Steam issues are worked out. Most people are actually playing through Nexon right now.

I can’t create an account on nexon.net either.
