Do you think the controls will be mostly keyboard-based like MapleStory or more mouse-based like most 3D games?

For me, part of the appeal has always been the mainly-keyboard gameplay. It feels more like an action-based RPG, which I suppose in a large sense it is. And I think this is one of the most unique and appealing things about the original MapleStory. But will the MapleStory name alone be enough to win out over all of the other 3D games? Or will the game feature mainly keyboard-based gameplay?

What do you think?

As the title states, what feature would you love to see in MapleStory 2?

Hi icygnic, I personally would love if there was gameplay for soloers as it's not always so easy for some of us to find the time to schedule our gaming and therefore becomes difficult to boss with others regularly.

open world...way too many dungeon orientated games

Open world
Bosses that actually require parties
Good BGM
Good PVP and Guild vs Guild wars
Non-targeting system

i've yet to see any footage of maplestory 2 so I can't say! but from that cinematic trailer it looks amazing. I know it won't look like that in game, but i'm sure it'll be cool

Fighting vs other player... not only with monsters... the mastery books for free... so we can use the real money for other stuffs... PVP should be the best

Anyone else hyped over the fact that they said they're not implementing any P2W transactions?
(yet)
I sincerely hope they keep NX purely cosmetic this time.

Hmm so you can't reply or qoute yet on this forum? Well anyways i highly doubt they will make this game not a p2w game. Maybe for the first year or less but eventually it be p2w. It's nexon we're talking about lol.

To be on topic. I'm just hoping the game will be easy to play as most 3d games can get a bit confusing. Im hoping questing will actually be worthwhile this time around. Just grinding for xp is terrible. There needs to be other ways to level up like most other mmos have.

@Omniscient1: It was mentioned in a thread on Basilmarket that the dev team for MS2 is mostly comprised of pre-bb Wizet employees. I don't know if you're aware but it wasn't until Nexon started to become the main company where Cubes and potential (aka P2W) started to fuel the game.

It's also a fact though that Maplestory's Cash Shop included a statement that said the items purchased with real money would have no affect in-game, but again that was before Nexon's takeover.

Since it's such a glaring issue in Maplestory, I like to assume that in this particular case they're going to stay true to their word but despite that I won't assume anything.

I played back when Wizet controlled the game (non P2W) and it was amazing. Now, I spend way more than I should on MS1. I'd like to see:
-Cosmetic Only Cash Shop
-Open world
-Player interaction required (bossing, quests, etc.)
-More quest focused to avoid less 24/7 grinding
-Free hitting (No targeting system)
-Great BGM like old Maple had!

Hi-ya! It's Reflexes on Basilmarket. Can't wait to see what's on stored soon!

I'm looking forward to PVP or something like a maplestory trade system and classes that are not too OP.

Feb 2014

I'm looking forward to good BGMs and fun mechanics.

And not pay2win, like other Nexon games.

Feb 2014

@thedstar from the games i played hosted by Nexon i.e Vindictus and Dragon Nest. That's just as pay2win as Maple is. Dragon Nest you need to keep buying shop permits or w/e there called in there for a shorter duration. Also 90% of the stuff cost nx to unbind or you need to be lucky on those broken stamps or w/e.

Vindictus I haven't played too much so i can't really say much but from the little I played it was also pay2win. You are forced to buy character slots there and the deletion process is stupid. 1 week waiting before you can fully delete a toon. Maple is very cash heavy but there are far worse games out there that is far more p2w than MS is.

They already confirmed theyre not planning to make it pay2win so thats a +.
I hope ms2 will still have the same maplestory feel and more oldschool feel. PARTYQUESTS!

I would like mounts you can fight with. Like being a lance wielder riding a Wild Kargo. Interact with creatures and the environment in many ways. An underground and sky world.

If the rumor about not being paytowin is true then it make me a happy panda,also how do you quote people,I accidenty click report >_<

Not sure if this would work for their business model,
but the cosmetics should be cheap (or heck, even free)
and should be aesthetically pleasing to the overwhelming majority of us.
I don't want to have to spend gazillions just to get some 'okay' haircut (ahem) and
I would *hate* having a boss character but having to stare at my ugly pixels all day long.
know whatamsayin'?

Other than that, I'm *really* looking forward to the 3D aspect. Contrary to most,
I LOVE 3D gaming because of its immersive, life-like visual.,
I'd really love to have flying mounts and vast, open spaces
with stunning and varied scenery like waterfalls, underwater cities, flying fortresses, and lava pits of doom, I would also also like to have weather play a part in the game, where rain, ice and snow might cause you to slip sometimes heh, and blissful sunlight can boost your skills.

Characters that have dual/switchable job combinations and housing would be nice too.

Better player play, I find that current maplestory (1) is far to solo based now, I would like to see the comeback of a party play system where you depend/need people to help accomplish quests or dungeons. Also a stable economy would be nice, MS1 is filled with money giants that feed on the weak and buff the strong

Mar 2014

Not depend on miracle cube like maplestory is right now.Rumor said MS2 not implementing any P2W transactions,let just hope they can keep that promise this time(I highly doubt it).I don't mind paying for cosmetics item(Cloth,Hair,etc),but potential/cube is the crap that need to stay away from maplestory 2.

I want to see the use of a bigger world and since this is going to be in 3D, I would also like to see maps require you to actually have some difficulty navigating through and create the terrain more 3d like with obstacles,jumps, etc.

I wish weapons/armor to have interesting variations in offensive and defensive capabilities. Not like high numbers (99,999,999), you get around 1-20 bars [][][][][] to determine the stats. Abilities/skills are affected by equips (Power, Defense, Speed, Reach, Skill Boast, Fire Enchanted, Snail Effective). You'll definitely keep your beginning weapon which is the most balanced and can temporary merge it with other stuff for a set time. A fatigue system where your max health/energy will temporary decrease and is restored by being logged off for a period of time. Skill points are acquired the more you use a specific equip/skill. Display the total time you played. Each day you can conveniently free write on your own MS2 journal. More activities that aren't damage based

I would like to see a guild vs guild system and a server political system for the best guilds to control the server by war or voting from the rest of the community. They can collect things such as taxes from trades and the power to shut down, open or upgrade NPC's ( Within reason ) and of course a revolution option for pissed off maplers that don't agree with the law's in place!

Open-World. unlike the shitty game called DragonNest.

THE BGM HAS TO BE GOOD!
This is a personal thought but, No Free Market, fill up the towns instead

@Gevergiz: Based on what we've heard so far, the BGM sounds pretty cool.
Not even sure what the economy is going to look like tho

i hope like dragon nest, but more chibi and OPEN WORLD PLZZZ

A sense of adventure, where going into maps unprepared can get you killed.

I'd like slow beginning levels. MS1 is basically deserted in the early levels, and low-level stuff like some PQs never get used. It is a real sad state.
To offset the slow leveling, more community events and such should help make the game fun and more friendly.

I love open world, but I also love dungeons... Sigh... I love the way Mabinogi did it with the dungeons, the only problem with it though, it's always the same. Change it up a bit. However, what I am anticipating most would have to be: housing. Always been a fan of interior, and even exterior, design. A money dump is always needed when you constantly collect money from monsters. Every time you get money from the server itself, there needs to be a way to dump money back into the server, to control inflation. I hope I can make a mansion and poor millions into it to make it look magnificent.

It's hard to choose just one thing, but I would have to say I'm looking forward to the trophies and achievements, challenges give the player something else to do aside from just grinding and I personally like a good challenge xD
I also think the customization with items/equips and the apartments/houses will help 110% with this as well, lessening the chances of boredom to set in.
