Also trying to pull off a double flash leap
Prior to going into it. Just an example of one of them. Made a few articles previously about this as others. These Maple M Mesos solutions are used by gamers for the past 2 years in Maplestory. They were just blocked this year on May the 22nd that was when significant DDOS attacks were occurring and Maple had plenty of downtime. When they solved the problems nobody was able to connect with these services. Most likely blocked along with everything else.
Since that time, I and others haven't only made an effort to get in touch with these services about the problem connecting to Global Maplestory, but we have also contacted Nexon about it through support. Both services explained that they might no longer connect either even after running multiple evaluations and trying different things. I've gotten mixed responses from Nexon. I don't think the first one understood what I was asking as he said he would pass it on to the programmers. I tried again a couple months later and was met with another response.
Because you can see them appear to think it is just like any other private network. VPNs are obviously contrary to the TOS and while W[tfast and Battleping are both personal networks that they should not be blocked as they are used by tens of thousands of gamers who suffer from high latency. Battleping even utilizes the users IP address to login before linking through the US server which Nexon will have the ability to see I would assume.
He also states the game should be playable with no services providing you have a broadband connection that's really not true. The delays are clear as day and not everyone lives near the servers in the US. Without these services the general gameplay experience is not smooth. There are noticeable delays in strikes and buffing. Also trying to pull off a double flash leap close to immediately is impossible without those services.
You don't need to have control over these 3rd party services. You merely need to unblock them. I found that this also. Because you can see that this is quite recent. I really don't know whether they're still trying tobuy Maplestory 2 Mesos have it working together with the development group but a phrase on this would be fine.
