2nd anniversary~!

22 September 2010 – Happy 2nd anniversary to me!! Wow~~~
I can’t believe that I’m still blogging for 2 years mostly about MapleStory.

It all started with this post back in 2008. Some of you have been following me since the beginning and I’m thankful for that. I always have a smile on my face when I see people supporting me. It’s motivation that keeps me writing. If I read my old posts… At this point I consider myself a better writer.

In 2 years:

– I created around 292 posts, 14 categories and 456 tags.
– I received more than 11,043 comments. (spammers excluded)
– I received more than 4,000,000 total views.
– I have uploaded more than 3,094 images. 337.7 MB used, 2.7 GB (89.0%) upload space remaining!


Thanks to everyone reading my blog and supporting me and what-not over the years.
좋은 추석 보내세요! Happy Chuseok everyone! ^^

    Happy anniversary :3
    Your work is awesome.

  65. Pow says:

    Spadow, you’re a great writer and a great guy in general from what I’ve been reading the past 2 years.
    Maplers couldn’t get a better guy to do all the amazing work you’re doing and everyone here appreciate what you’re doing if it’s extracting data, informing us about the ongoing events in KMS, sharing experience and opinions on all the different things in Maplestory.
    Keep up the good work and good luck in advance!

  66. Megabine says:

    Il continue viewing them until you stop making.
    Wich will never happen xD

  69. Spadower says:

    CONGRATULATIONS, SPADOW! I’ve been following you since I started MapleStory (One year?), and you’ve always helped us be prepared for what’s coming up. Thanks for keeping us updated!

  70. FlashinBucc says:

    Late Gratz!

  71. andrew says:

    I haven’t been with you from the start, or really, I’ve found your site rather late. But you are the one that gives me the information that makes me try to predict certain things happening (Like weapon scrolls going up because of new classes), and I will check out your blogs daily because of that. I’m hoping you keep updating, we’re hungry for information here in GMS.

    I would like to thank you for all the information you post up here, it’s helpful and I hope you keep updating. Please and thank you, oh great spadow. :D

  72. Spadow says:

    Thank you all for the lovely messages. ^^


  73. msupdate says:

    Grats!! You’re awesome.

  74. Alilatias says:

    lol Spadow. I -STILL- remember how you’re a Golden Sun fan.

    I just bought Golden Sun: The Lost Age from someone at the college anime club for $5. Quite an interesting game. Too bad buying and playing through the first game isn’t an option for me at the moment, but at least TLA’s intro brought me up to speed.

    • Spadow says:

      Yes!! I cannot wait for Dark Dawn this year. I’m glad I kept my DS Lite.

      • Alilatias says:

        I just cleared the game today. I think I have about 30 hours invested in it so far. Spent almost the whole weekend playing it, hahaha.

        But HOLY [CENSORED], you guys weren’t kidding when you said the puzzles were tough. I feel like I can survive puzzles in any game now.


      • Alilatias says:

        That said, you can consider me a converted Golden Sun fan now. I can’t wait for Dark Dawn now too. Why did my brother have to go out and sell my DS…

        The 3DS better have backwards compatability.

  75. Hanabira.Kage says:

    It’s funny how more than half of the threads in that first entry of yours were written due to you posting a link to the post. :x

  76. tori says:

  78. frank says:

  79. Kype says:

    Congratulation, Spadow :).
    A well deserved remark!

    I hope you’ll keep writing. And, yes, I too believe you’ve become a better writer.
    I found your blog through google a long time ago, but it isn’t until recently that I became a fan of it. I enjoy reading it regardless of the scope of the news. Keep writing, bud :)

  80. Alex says:

    Which class do you recomend in GMS once the big bang comes (sept 29) gunnslinger, brawler, or aran. Thanks!

    • somenoob says:

      dude its not comin out september 29… what kind of misguided answer is that?
      they need to promote it #1
      and its not all one patch #2
      plus renaiming it doesnt count as a promo so dont try and tell meh that
      but i recommend pirates:D corsair has highest dpm but mechanic is hihg up there to
      buccanears are kewl looking but low down on dpm
      btw hope u dont think im being rude if so sorry bout that

  84. LynjanDakari says:

    Gratz Spadow! You’re the most in-depth blogger about Maplestory, far better than Nexon (Have you seen “Acornstory?” Oh gosh.). Well Nexon America, anyway. Keep blogging :D

  85. dLeet says:

    100th! Grats again Spadow xDD

  86. Kio says:

    Always great to see you digging through what's coming out, give us something to get excited about, and hope that Nexon isn't out to ruin our gaming lives… -_-

    Keep it up!

  87. LycanRage says:

    Hey! Gratz on your anniversary! Sorry I’m late. Dual Blade is finally coming out in maplesea in our November (diff. time zone, right?). Should I be a pure LUK one or a LUK and DEX one?

  88. mazaranshak says:
