I'll say anecdotally that I was ambuscade actuality if anarchy ascent was released, and there was a huge beating over the 300 actor in bankrupt beta to 800 actor bloom access for anarchy devorak and whether it was even attainable for a +12 weapon to do the appropriate damage, as able-bodied as several bluster posts about how important rolling able stats are. I will not hotlink any aback I'm not abiding if that counts for witch hunting, but they aren't harder to acquisition just by analytic "chaos devorak" on the subreddit.
I accede myself a accidental player. I plan 60h a anniversary amid three jobs (~30 ~20 ~10) and I still REALLY adore this bold and acquisition 1~2h accustomed to play.
As abundant as our progression is slowed down by Maple Story M Mesos these time-gated systems, it's candidly authoritative me acknowledge the bullwork and to bethink to adore the JOURNEY as abundant as the destination I'm aggravating to get to.
I've been arena aback arch alpha and I don't cap my dungeons every week, but bygone I just hit 7600 GS, and acquisitive to hit 7800 by the end of the anniversary attainable for my Charlatan ass to be agitated and flamed in CPAP.
I've been arid alive on factions quests (seriously, I just do what I can and I about accept the Maple Accord unlocked), and arid architecture up my bays and appellation count.
Some humans play for the fortune. Some for the fame. Some just wish to play the Buy MaplestoryM Mesos game. Aggregate doesn't accept to be a chore. It doesn't accept to feel like a grind. A lot of it is in your mentality.
BIGGEST affair for me is that 60 dungeons a anniversary is not traveling hard. It's actually grinding, but traveling harder is accomplishing 60 dungeons in a day. Humans wish to do agreeable if they wish to, not if they accept to. In added MMORPGs i can mindlessly bullwork for hours for a brace of days, afresh arctic for a anniversary or two afore hitting the bullwork again. This lets me play the bold at my clip depending on if I'm activity motivated.
With MS2, I accept to play because I'm agreeable capped daily. It's not that "I NEED TO PROGRESS TO STAY IN THE TOP 1%" it's added forth the curve of "If I abatement abaft my guild, there's in actuality no way to bolt up." In added games, I can skip a anniversary of play, and bolt up by traveling harder the next week. In MS2, if I skip a day, I'm abaft (and break behind) in pet fusions, crafting levels, accord reputation, etc.
