First off, sorry if this doesn't belong here! I was debating between this section and some others to post it and was pretty indecisive about it in the end. I'm also new to Maplestory (I played a bit in 2005 but that's it) and Southperry, so forgive me if I'm being dumb about something considered obvious. Only 8x ish right now. I do have experience with Nexon as a company, though.
I've been thinking about charging some NX to buy some cash shop items, most notably some of the permanent event items that are out right now. But the problem is that I hear people talk about getting hacked left and right whenever I browse through Maple fansites or the official forums. This, of course, has made me think twice about spending... it seems like most of the Maple population has been hacked at least once, and I almost feel like it's inevitable that I'll experience it sometime soon, too. >:
Anyways, my question is, how often would you say people get hacked in this game? I'm a soloer (I really only play with my boyfriend) and never really communicate with anyone ingame. Would this help minimize my chances? Do any of you guys continue to buy NX even if you've been hacked? :X
I'm honestly really stuck lol. I'd like to get some items from the shop but at the same time it seems like there's a high chance I'll lose my stuff and get nothing but a mediocre (if that) compensation package to make up for it.
