Hello everyone,

The issue with European IPs not being able to login to MapleStory has been addressed. European players playing prior to the patch should be able to login normally from this point forward. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Well, now we can all look back and laugh at our frustration. While we plunge a knife deeply into Nexon. hahahaha.

Blocking a whole continent's IP addresses takes some big love codes. That wasn't a technical difficulty. Nexon just realised they were losing WAY too much.

Technical difficulties?

MY love IT IS!

They just got there plan to block Europeans backfired HARD ... If Nexon pulls this one again ... I'm sure we'll see something about a blown up Nexon office on the news.

If they would have put all Euro accounts on MapleEurope ... then it would be fine! But not without any damn announcement!

I think they just did it to show Korean Nexon (The one that controls eMS) what would happen.

How silly of us, of course, it was just a technical error all along!

Cover up much?

No matter if it was an error or not, you guys can have your accounts back. I'm glad it didn't take too much to make them change their decision/fix their "problem".

Happy Global Mapling from now on!

Yeah, I'm just glad that I can have my account back. But I still secretly hate Nexon. ^__^

Oh yah, and let's not flame each other for about nexon's purpose for this sudden change or "technical difficulty".

They just said that cause they received so many complaints.
Their hideous plan got backfired. ;o
They didn't have the guts to even apologize lmao.
Nexon and their issues. Psh.

But if this is true and is not a lie after all, I'm really glad! :3

I know their idea now.

they will slowly 1 by 1 DELETE (yes, delete) all the european accounts so it would go unnoticed.
after a while, all the eruopean accounts are banned and deleted and Nexon will have victory, cause you can't post with a deleted account and since europeans can't register on GMS anymore they would never be able to post anymore.

just take this as a warning. Cause i'm sure nexon will try and do this.

As much as I doubt it was a 'technical error', I'm still happy I don't loose friends.

@ Stormpike, one at a time? I seriously doubt they'll do that, and it wouldn't go unnoticed.

Why do people find it so hard to believe that Nexon has a little red button that says "Ban Europe", and that someone accidently pushed it?

As much as I'd hate to say it, since part of their code involved blocking European IP addresses from having new accounts.. I would not be suprised if they screwed up with the code.

I mean for craps sake, they don't even have customErrors enabled in their web.config, and they publish all project files (which can be a security risk), so I think it's proper to have doubts about their Developers.

It wasn't technical. How do you accidently ban a whole continents IP and create a message saying "sign up at mapleeurope.com plx"?

Of course it was technical.

CODE
If user is from europe:
Deny login


They had to add another if statement to fix it.

CODE
If user is from europe:
If user account is NOT created before xxxx:
Deny login
