Nexon has announced that the first Chaos update of MapleStory has topped around 280,000 concurrent users. That is less than the Big Bang update… Big Bang topped around 416,000 concurrent users making it a personal best record for MapleStory in Korea.
The chief who’s in charge of the overall development of MapleStory, Oh Han Byul, said in an interview that he would like to break the record of the Big Bang update. Unfortunately, Big Bang is still number 1. However, 280,000 is still a very good achievement.
Do you know why this update only topped less than Big Bang? Because it’s winter. There’s always competition in the winter because of the large updates and many people have a long break.
It’s a perfect time for games to release their large updates like MapleStory, Dungeon & Fighter etc.
The last term of 2010 for the test server will end very soon… It was a pretty fun term and I liked the new content.
I hope I will be selected again in 2011~
Next week the second update of the Chaos update will be released and the third (PvP!) in January.
I’m anticipating for the new profession skill system and the new high-leveled area.
