    Well, it's going to be 3D, and less button holding than MS1.
    Housing system, better PvP system, and overall combat system.
    I'm not quite sure what else you really expected to hear.

    Hello Zyoomstryker,

    It's going to be an awesome videogame.

    - Role Play at it's finest, 100% customization character. Length of your hair, able to design your own clothes.
    - Housing System (IMO is stupid but you may like it) you can rent/buy a property, design it from bottom to the top, have all kinds of things on it who people may or may not give a damn about. They can visit your house and people will like it or hate it. You have to pay high amount of Mesos for it which more likely will expire in 30 days (depends on where it is that you buy it) and all your Mesos will be in vain, unless people did actually like you have, so at least you have that.
    - PvP There isn't much info about it but it's confirmed there are going to be 3 modes, which they didn't say but for what I can see in the footage released so far it's going to be a 1v1, team (4v4-like) and something that looks like MOBA? "Mages calling Mid, Warriors go off-tank Top" if you play League of Legends. But makes me wonder is there really not going to be a Free-For-All? Those seemed to be extremely popular if no one likes you, like myself.
    - 3D Regardless of what A LOT of people is saying about 3D being bad. It's awesome, it's a HUGE change and makes it look WAY better, in 5-10 years you will look at MS1 and you're going to be all like "Still 2D? I mean... everything else is 3D or better nowdays".
    - Interactive, Did you know that every NPC has it's own artwork? their own voice? Is not only text now (visual), but also audio.
    - Entertaining, MS2 is not only about Leveling, there are TONS of fun-looking Mini Games and quests.
    - Improvement Every boss has their own patterns so there is not the old same thing of predicting what a boss is going to do next or think ahead but live the moment.
    - Classes Even though there are pretty much the same classes in any other videogame but they kept them stylish, each of them is unique and has their on things. We have only seen the 1st Job, do you imagine 2nd and 3rd! HFS! pure awesomeness, man!
    - Leveling This is something that it could more likely get boring at a certain point but in MS2 (it will also get boring, though) it's more entertaining since there is no MP but SP. It makes the training for difficult, more interactive, you can't sit and spam spells, you have to move around to avoid AoE attacks and stuff, you can to do basics in order to gain SP back, etc.

    I could go on if you want ~

    You make it sound absolutely amazing! Haha, you're getting me hyped for it so much that I really can't wait. Mostly, I am a PvP centered person so it sounds great on how they are planning this system. I'm really glad with what they did for MP, before I could literally walk around and just hold down 1 key but to be honest this sounds absolutely great! Please go on if you would like, i'm all ears~

    Hello Zyoomstryker,

    I'm glad you liked it.

    PvP It's VERY interactive, I noticed that on the footage it was like a street-like-map where you could (Besides your skills) take stuff from the street and use them as weapons, such as an electricity pole and use it to hit enemies. Imagine if you could move around cars and more stuff, that makes it extremely original. What about other maps? what if there is an ice map where you could get stunned by a Yeti and enemies could take advantage and hit you in that moment. Who knows? I'm pretty sure they will surprise us.
    Fun fact, since you are interested on it: PvP will be released when the game is officially released. It was not included in Alpha Test; Closed Beta is in a month, probably will get to play it there, even if not... it's confirmed that it will come out the same date the game is out.

    Training You are right. In my opinion MS1 is a broken game and there is nothing to be done anymore. I played during 2006 to 2012, been almost 3 years since I quit. What I did notice in the footage and is that it's quite difficult to train and gain levels, lots of pots, move around, you got to be quick. Regarding SP, yeah Skills seems to consume A LOT of it and it's hard to gain back. Keep in mind that this is 1st. Job, perhaps by 2nd. and 3rd. Job we'll get more Skills that can gain SP back, not as powerful as a high level Skill but stronger than a Basic Attack, right? Imagine a 4th. Job doing basics in order to gain SP. Anyway, that is just what I think.

    Time MapleStory 2 was first announced in 2008. A year after-- the idea and concept was approved and they started development in 2009. It's been 5-6 years since it's been in development. To be honest this is too much time, way too much. At first I was upset but after seeing the results-- what they have come with? Oh man, it's worth it. When I heard about the Mini-Games I was like "meh same boring stuff like MS1" God, I was so wrong. The graphics are just way too good. Both cinematics released so far are AWESOME!!

    Housing System Yeah, well I don't see myself spending time on creating a house so my friends can go and check it out but I'm sure there are thousands that will like it. A video released 2 weeks ago shows a lot of content of it, how and what you are able to change such as windows, stairs, floor, ceiling, bed, chair, tv, table, etc... I guess the 'hene hoes' will like this addition. I am sure the development team took literally months to create this feature and I'm sure they thought it through and know it will not be a failure feature. Who knows, perhaps I will end up liking it.

    Nostalgia We got our old and loved Victoria Island back! I'm so happy about it (Maple Island, too) the concept and graphics OMG! Brings me A LOT of memories back. We got some bosses (so far) Mushmom, Zombie Mushmom, Crimson Balrog, Mano and even though there is not the official Artwork yet but they comfiremd that Papulatus and Zakum are coming back!. There are quite some new bosses too but we are about old-school right now. Some Skills, too! For example Magicians can get SP back by using the old and beloved Magic Claw.

    Storyline MS2 takes places quite some time back before MS1 (it's a prequel) and the Black Mage is not in it. That would be why Pirates are not in it. I have all Pirate classes in level 200 in MS1 so I know A LOT about this, though in their storyline says that Pirates used to be one of the first classes to defend the Maple World but they went on a mission to stop the Black Mage on their own on the Nautilus. Anyway, we don't have Pirates yet, but hopefully we'll get to see some other Characters to play! How about Aran? I remember in Aran's storyline that he used to be the shit back in the day but he got frozen? I'm sure they will surprise us with future content, and a lot of nostalgia for old-school Maplers. Some Items are back, too! It's a big list so I rather don't mention one by one.

    Design If you took a picture with your girlfriend last night, you can use it as a Cape display. You can upload pictures and use them as your equipment, you can use Paint and draw a happy face and use it as Gloves. Personally I am not creative whatsoever but I know TONS of Graphic Designers and creative people will put this feature into use.

    Money MS1 is 100% Pay-To-Win, broken-bad game. So far what only has NX charges are Avatar Items designed by developers. Nexon realized they screwed up and they don't want to take the P2W route for MS2.

    Release There are rumors about being a Worldwide release, nothing confirmed by Nexon. Some people say that the English translation is already finished. Who knows, IMO these are only rumors and nothing confirmed by Nexon so I rather don't get my hopes up. At least we have CBT in a month, so that's something. Hopefully OBT around March-April? and release (at least in Korea) around July-September. I will have an extremely hard time because I don't speak Korean but I will definitely try to get to CBT if possible.

    Any thoughts?

    If it's a worldwide release, i'm wondering if everything is going to be run from the koreans such as holiday events or if it's going to be like different versions for each country.

    I also agree that MS1 was a Pay-To-Win, it was really hard to get far or look really cool accesorized without spending money on the game which eventually pushed out a lot of the free players imo.

    I absolutely LOVE when new games put in nostalgia from the old ones, it's new and improved with that really nice feeling of comfort.

    I have a feeling that the design could be misused but still be awesome for basically the whole community which fixes a lot of need for fashion in the game, seeing as you can customize yourself. I'm also hoping that the raid gear won't be extremely stronger then the rest of the other items but I hope they've already put in a solution for this.

    For the housing, it seems like a nice place to chill and I think it would be nice if your friends could also hang out in your house.

    I like how they also included the map into their thoughts when making it, it seems cool how you can attack people with the actual map xD

    These are my thoughts so far from what you've told me haha

    You are right, that is something I didn't think about before. I can only assume that Nexon Korea would sell the game to different Publishers such as Shanda for ChinaMS, AsiaSoft for SingaporeMS, Nexon of course will own most of it, North America, Korea, Europe and Japan (at least). And they would take care of their own holiday Events(?) or maybe only the more popular ones such as: Christmas, Summer, Halloween, Valentine's Day, New Year.

    Yeah, Nexon fucked up big time. I spend at least $3,000 USD in the 6 years that I played MS1. Though, I did play a lot lol I got Buccaneer, Corsair, Mechanic, Canoneer and Jett in Level 200 and I had OP equipment back in the day. After Big Bang update everything went down to Hell, awful changes. I do understand that as a company they need to make money, it's their job but come on...

    For the design yeah there are A LOT of comments regarding it'll be misused for sure, I can only assume the more popular would be uploading nudity and/or pornographic images as equipment (I forgot to mention, you can change your Face. You could take a picture of your face and upload it as your Character's face) but I can only guess that Nexon would have a 100% no tolerance for this. As soon as they upload certain images and it's reported, that'll be perma ban.
    I don't know much about equipment stats so I rather don't give my opinion on it just yet. But I highly doubt there is going to be much difference, like any other game they have to keep it simple. At least for the first months.

    Yeah I guess it'll be fun to go over a friend's house and check it out. Maybe talk about future boss runs and whatnot, it is definitely a cool addition but not something I'd do every day or have my own house. Rather just AFK on a rope lol!
