Now that the second half of the Skybound Expansion is out, the MapleStory 2 devs would like to get to work making improvements to the game. And to do that, they’re looking to work with the game’s community.
In a Producer Blog published today, the MapleStory 2 team revealed a 3-month project in which they’ll use a five-step cycle to implement changes. This process is designed to gather as much feedback as possible from the community and is as follows.
- We will share with you full details of our proposed solution to an issue and why we believe that solution is the most viable one available.
- At that time, we will gather your feedback regarding the proposed solution to see if there are any further adjustments to include with the update.
- We will share the final decision after all feedback from the community has been reviewed, prior to the changes being released.
- We will update the game with the solution that’s been reviewed by the community.
- Rinse and repeat!
To provide players with an easy way to be involved in this process, Nexon will open a dedicated microsite next month. Players will be able to use this site to participate in all discussions related to game improvements.
The post also outlines what the devs plan to improve — at least starting out. This includes everything from Enchanting to Epic Pets. A list is available on the site, and more information will be provided at a later date.
Finally, there’s a timeline available in the post as well. It runs from February to June and effectively outlines what players can expect in the discussion cycle. It’s pretty safe to say that the calendar is pretty likely to change as time goes on — depending on how much discussion any particular improvement takes, and how long it takes to implement it.
