My first experience with Maple Story was in October 2007 when I was addicted for about a month before the difficulty in gaining levels started frustrating me (I am the casualest of casual gamers, heh) and I gave up at about level 32. I lost the log in for that character and forgot all about the game.
For whatever reason a few weeks back I got an itch to play again, and while the game obviously still has issues I was pleasantly surprised to find leveling up had become easier. I've also dragged an online friend of mine into the game and we're having fun. I like that there's a MMO in 2D and the graphics remind of Super Nintendo, haha.
I came across Southperry because it's one of the only MS forums not blocked by my company (in an effort to stop people from playing java games anything involving games whatsoever triggers the filter) and made for some interesting reading during slow periods. I like the maturity level here compared to other forums I've come across, so decided it's a nice place to lurk for updates.
And now, since who can resist filling out a form:
