First off, the name is pretty dumb. But who cares about the name?

I used to play this when my Wc3 didn't work. Its a pretty simple yet fun 2D side scrolling MMORPG.

Some annoyances/cons are: (no particular order)

- newly added "cash shop", which lets you buy items for real money (cosmetic/apperance changing only items)
- Small, child-like character/enemy models
- Long time to level up
- NO PVP!
- Cartoony graphics
- somethimes there are crappy Korean to English translations (rarely though)
- quite long download (204mb) and installation. (it is definatly worth the wait though)


Some pro's are: (no particular order)

- Supports up to lv 120+
- 5 Classes, and 2 sub classes to each one.
- 2D
- "cash shop" items are only cosmetic.
- thousands of items to collect
- well-balanced, solid MMORPG
-seems to have more serious players than other games (ei Runescape), not as much spam and begging.
- thousands of enemies
- new and different kind of RPG
- downloadable client (full screen, small loads)
- funny sounds/music ( I love them)
-frequent updates
- three worlds to explore (1 1/2 worlds finished, third world still under construction)
- alot less (none?) hackers than other games because of the watchdog program called NGuard that is built in.
-3 servers (and counting) with 20 realms in each one, so you can choose to go to a crowded realm to trade, or a quite realm to level without interuption.

Worth a try if you're bored of WC and you want to play something for free.

That is total BS. Well mabye for the BETA test it worked like that. No way for the latest game that's out now.

WARNING! Furry alert!

At Maple World, hunting and engaging in battles are not the only options you'll have.
You can explore a totally new and unknown world you have never been to, put on beautiful clothes and gorgeous accessories, and even attract other users in the process. You may begin the journey to explore the world of unknown alone, but you may come out on the other end with numerous new friends through hunting and chatting. If you're tired of hunting and competition, how about playing minigames with a friend for a change?
lololololololol

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
