Well, I am going to do an essay about Maplestory(more specific about the hacks and how they affect the economy in it and things around that) and I need some help finding and looking for information so, if there is anyone that can help me answering the questions below for my field research, it's really appreciated, you can also PM me...
(sorry if my english it's bad by the way ._.)
1.- How the economy in maplestory and other games works? How it's regulated?
2.- What it's nexon doing to fight hackers and how?
(for these questions if you got a link please post it)
As a player...
3.- How the hacks(especially botters) affects you in general? Does it influence you in anyway the neccesity of buying nx or mesos from them for real money?
4.- Do you spend real money in Maplestory? if so...
-How much NX/mesos you have buyed and how much real money you have spended on them?(Aprox.)
-After how much time playing you started buying?(Ex. I started buying NX/mesos after x years playing maple)
5.- (Refering to to question 2)What do you think about Nexon actions against hackers?
