In a move that will suprise many, Nexon has decided to give up on hackers and begin offering hacking tools to "level the playing field".

Instead of spending much time patching the game, hackers can compete with each other to gain the best stats.

"Imagine if we could have maxed out stats and level 255!" said AngriBoyz55, magician, "We would have so much more fun."

But others disagree and enjoy the pleasure of hacking the game and getting around gameguard and the autoban system.

"If gameguard is gone, we lose a level of challenge and makes the game too easy to be hacked," said IrTehScriptkidz, spearman.

Nonetheless, Nexon will be going ahead with their plan by turning off gameguard and autoban at tonight's server check.

So guess what? MapleTip will be going through an overhaul this summer! Details coming soon..

So... no more complaining about playing MS in a window? Sounds good to me, not to mention I'll only take 2 weeks to get all my characters to at least L120.
Looking for an alternative to BS/MapleSim, something that includes item stats... you've any leads?

I almost had a heart attack when I read this. Then I realised this was an april fool's joke. Now I'm laughing at myself for actually falling for it for a few seconds. It wouldn't surprise me Nexon actually did it, when I really get to thinking about it.

I liked Flip's joke, where he went to MTDBera and changed the notice to "HAH YOU GUYS GOT PWNED BY NIGHTFLURRY XD". ;D
2 How long, O LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, "Violence!" but you do not save? 3 Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds. 4 Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails. The wicked hem in the righteous, so that justice is perverted. (5 is the Lord replying to Habakkuk)5 "Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told." Habakkuk 1:2-5

4 "See, he is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous will live by his faith. Habakkuk 2:4

Still gone.
