#4 – “The Visitors” Event! Part II Post-poned!

Today was the start of “The Visitors” Event’s Part/Stage II!  It seems exciting, but there is some problems today…

The Server Crashed!



The servers of Windia, Broa, Bera, Scania, Mardia, Khaini and others crashed today.  Upon the start of Part II, the majority of the channels on the servers crashed and disconnected many Maplers.  BasilMarket is in a scramble, and there is so much activity that a thread was designated to this issue on this website.  This thread has grown very fast in just a matter of minutes.  The thread is currently growing very fast, and is at 48 pages.  Here is the link to the thread:  link to thread.

Nexon still hasn’t addressed this issue.

Update! Nexon did an unscheduled server maintenance to deal with this problem.  Link to article:  here.

The two pictures above are of Channel 7 and Channel 2.  I have been disconnected several times.  Channel 4 and 7 seemed to be the only ones that didn’t crash.  I connected long enough to get screenshots of both the filled Channel 7 and the empty Channel 2.

What is the cause of this sudden server crash? Was there a rollback?

I’ve been hearing some slight speculation that either hackers are invading MapleStory, the servers are being over-loaded, or that Stages 1 and 2 of this event are going at the same time.  Stage II was supposed to happen in 7 days.  But, the banner’s screen says “Part II” instead of  “Stage II.”

lailaimoon says:  “Maybe these problems are because Nexon is cramming too many contents into patches at a time? -o-“

kikutaiamu (or thetank2 on basil) says: “It’s probably because as of now, stage 1 and stage 2 are happening SIMULTANEOUSLY.

Perhaps, this is happened because of this person?

redlinexd says:  ” every since potential came out, everything is eff’d up, did u guys see the person who potentialed a red craven over 24 times? how on earth does that happen?”

kikutaiamu (or thetank2 on basil) said in response:  “He ENHANCED his craven 24 times, not POTENTIALLED. it happens because of a PACKET EDITOR hack.

Maybe there was, as of this comment on a thread from BasilMarket as proof:

LightAmazigh says: “Because before setting up a shop, I was equipped with a Red Whip, until I decided to remove it. But when I went on again, I saw myself wearing that Red Whip

Everyone seems to be in a scramble. Many people seem to be upset about the server crash.  Many are quoting the end of the world, 2012, and are blaming Nexon for this.  Nexon is currently working on this, and started a server maintenance.

But, they are still angry.  Is there going to be a second major rollback, like the Explorer’s Ring Event?


Yeah, many people are angry.  But, if you were doing the Part II quest, there might be a way to get your Crystanol back:

mintroparan says: “I got d/ced for the maintenance right when I was about to get my Bing Suit.
Heres a tip: Once you get the Crystanol Fragment, go out and get hit by a monster, then cc, you will get your fragment back.
You only get the fragment back, when you are in the room with the quest’s NPC in it.”

Thanks, mintroparan.

Your characters should not be stuck in the event map if it is canceled, delayed, or etc.

wjang59 (BS username) says:  “well pretty much that means alot of characters might be stuck untill next week [including me since i was at the event map]”

Golfek says in response: “Unless you haven’t noticed. If you log out in the Deep Sea, Mine, etc. you get sent back to Henesys when you log in.”

    Great work on this blog but no offense, its god damn useless. All your info comes from people who already know the answers. All you’re doing is trying to get attention. Also, people from basilmarket can ban you for advertising your blog. Just stop trying, there are much MUCH better blogs than this one, from people who are actually good at the game.
