MapleStory Reboot

You all remember that one 2D side scrolling game name MapleStory? YEAH, I’m back to it again. My friend Jin told me about the reboot server during winter
break so I thought I’d check it out.. Now I’m hooked! I’ve been playing MapleStory since summer of 7-8th grade so I was around 12 years old when I started. Then there was leading a guild in Broa name TrueMagic and making life time friends from it. I quit MapleStory back in 2010 after the BigBang patch game out. Being banned by Nexon for 3 months was pretty much the last of me logging on actively onto MS until recently. I found out later I was banned for naming a character ButtFaceKoC in a server I didn’t even played in. Thanks Nexon, you da best.

What attracted me the most about the Reboot server is Nexon advertising it as “bringing the old times back”, which is some what true. The different thing about the server is that it is not as pay to win anymore. Items such as Teleport Rocks, Miracle Cubes, and Safety Charms are all purchasable by mesos. I really like that idea because I was never really the type of person who would want to spend thousands just to be strong in the game. When I started playing I was not disappointed.

As I logged on to try out the reboot server, it bought back a lot of memories of interacting with them online strangers. I would party up with people with the same objective, have small talk, some people stuck as friends, some remain by passers.

Making a new Chara

I originally made a adventurer warrior when I tried the server out alone, I didn’t really get far with that character. I invited Arthur to try reboot with me and he decided to making one of the Sengoku class Hayato. I wanted to match him so I picked Kanna without knowing what I was getting myself into. I really had no idea what I wanted to name my Kanna. I’m a little obsessed with my hamsters so I picked HamsterHat. Why HamsterHat? I don’t know… guess I just wanted something the flows well with the word hamster, haha.

HamsterHat today!

Picking Kanna turned out really well. The class was unique to my perspective. They didn’t really feel like a copy of other classes (which I really hated about a lot of the recent classes.) I later on found out about the fact that everyone wants me in their party for my Kishin skill.  Not to mention Kannas are a boss at farming mesos so I’m probably going to stick with HamsterHat for as long as I play reboot.

Sizzling Santa

I was never really an event person on MapleStory but for some reason I became really obsessed with finishing this year’s Christmas event. It was a long confusing journey, many Maplers gave up in the end but I made to the end! I was very happy. The rewards include the Master Santa medal and the Chair. It is kinda nice to have something to show off for finishing the event quest line. Haha.

I got into the event mostly for the medal but the story really got to me. It was actually a cute story. The story started out with Santa injuring himself by crashing his sled so now you are stuck playing the role of Santa to win the Master Santa contest (or whatever it was called). During the quest line you are to recruit elves and reindeer to join the Santa team. All of the members you approach ask for a favor before agreeing to join.

A lot of the favors are some what ridiculously tedious, especially having to clear a PQ 30 times. I can see why people gave up on it. I went for it anyways. While a lot of people were busy trying to gain range and level, I was just obsessing over finishing this quest line. The ending result was unexpected. All the hard work kinda built up to the climax cut scene when they announced the winner of the Santa contest. I was actually super excited at the announcement (even though I knew we were supposed to be the winners? lol)

It was all good fun for a Christmas Event. I never knew I would tear up from a MapleStory quest line lol

The Guild: Motive

I have always been a guild person on MapleStory. I was kinda happy when Arthur decided that he wanted to make a guild and got serious with recruiting. The guild originally consist of a lot of Arthur’s old friends from Bera. Then Ryan, my first Reboot friend, joined and a lot of other reboot friends join as well. I was surprise on how much guild pride a lot of our members had. It made me really happy to have a family on the reboot server. I remember playing on Bera and joining a guild I never felt like I belonged to. I would always get mad at guild leaders that did not know how to be guild leaders. Guild leaders that did not bother creating a guild culture, or did not even try to get to know the guild members or try to keep the guild together. I guess most people start guilds because they wanted to put all their friends in the same guild but to me, I’d like to be in a guild that actually cares about the fact that we’re in a guild, its like being a family and looking after each other!

We grew a lot as a guild and currently we’re standing at rank 32 (02/05/2016). Plan on climbing that guild ladder higher!

——————————————————-

I slowed down a little on playing MapleStory. I mostly go on there just to do dailies but I still enjoy chatting with guild mates and from time to time doing random boss runs and leveling. I’m level 211 now so, it’s a little demotivating to level unless there is a 2x event.

Victoria planned a training session this weekend at Scrapyeard. Looking forward to that 😀

Blogging about Maple Story… how Hondai-like. Well, anyway, TrueMagic generation 3 broke apart somewhat. Well, 2 significant members left the guild to make their own and asked to alliance with us. Well, I don’t really mind that but, they’re stealing members! So far 3 other significant members quitted the guild to join them.

And now we’re alliance so they can talk to our guild members. Do you think that’s fair? I felt like it wasn’t… It took Stan and I so much effort recruiting people. Seems like Stan is taking it harder than I am though… He’s totally ignoring them in Alliance Chat. Stan said he’d never leave TrueMagic, that makes me very happy. 🙂 Though, never say never! You never know, but thanks anyway Stanley and your manliness.

How many more weeks of school for you? Counting from today, I have exactly 2 weeks of school left! OH SUMMER COME TO ME~!!! <33 I really need a 2 month chillax time! But these 2 weeks I’ll be hanging on a strong before I drop into the dead den. Next week’s schedule is jam pack!.

Monday – Group Meeting/presentation in Public Speaking
Tuesday – Japanese Class/Chemistry test/Chemistry Group meeting
Wednesday – Chemistry Group meeting/Registration crap!
Thursday – Chemistry Presentation/commemorative speech stuff
Friday – Work

I love being college yet hate it at the same time. Every time I walk into the highschool I feel so… unwelcomed?? Whatever 😛 I’m typing this entry at my highschool library. Hahaha~! No one will bring the Hondai of TrueMagic down!!!

Ps. I have plans for a new website during summer! I shall work on it once summer comes along :)|||||

Haha, I’ve done it this time. Here’s the scoop, nearly 10 hours of Maple Story on Sunday after noon and 5 hours last night. Whoa there whoa! Well now Hondai, you have just earned yourself a suspension from Maple Story until Friday. Well in 14 hours, I leveled my Fighter from level 64-69cleric from 31-36, and my sin from 50-51. Maple Anniversary is so addicting! Hahaha… If you think that’s a lot my friend Stan who was 75 is now 86. Hmm probably 90 already by now?

Anyway, it’s time to smack back into reality. I’m busy this week and I haven’t realized that I missed my orthodontist appointment yesterday. I studied so hard for my Chemistry test but in the test, I couldn’t do much. I didn’t study my kanji, so I forgot how to write the Kanji for name -> 名前(namae) so I ended up writing 名舞(namai) on the test. Epic Fails. DX

First of all, Happy New Year! to Thai, Cambodians and Laotians around the world! 🙂 I think I mentioned this many times but, I love new years! Though, right now Thailand is a huge mess. It’s so scary, I don’t even want to talk about it. So much for ไทยนี้รักสงบ (Us Thai love peace). I love Thailand, but why do we turn out like this right now? How crazy is that?! I love how Thai people have strong sense of pride, but sometimes the this strong pride just goes wrong 🙁

So spring quarter started and I’m much happier about things now, I wonder why. Maybe it’s Maple Story? Is this happiness temporary or is it real? Is what I’m doing right??? I hope I’m not too addicted. I’ll admit I play around 1-3 hours a day now >_< but I do get everything in school done. Well, if things get out of control, I’m sure I can handle it this time. Unlike the past. 🙂 Only thing that sucks now is that I’m not keeping some promises!!! *cough cough*Art trades and True Magic. I’m sorry! I did discover one thing though~ Before you want to make someone else happy, make yourself happy first.

Well, I hope I get my lazy butt out soon and update the graphics I have onto True Magic!|||||
