MapleStory Private Servers


I don’t know how popular this is in other MapleStory versions, but it seems that there seems to be a lot of English MapleStory Private Servers coming out. It seems quite stupid that they purposely put YouTube videos announcing the release and game-play video. The real question is: Why hasn’t Nexon done anything about it?

Maybe Nexon doesn’t have the rights to do anything? I highly doubt that. Maybe they’re just hoping these people will go away. But if MapleStory private servers become a trend like hacking, Nexon will have no choice but to act. I’m sure that everyone involved in MapleStory private servers will dread that day. There are already many private servers said to come out, Odin MS which is the current closed beta one and MapleGeek is one rumored to come out in March of 2008.

Because we respect Nexon’s TOS and the ability to have copyrighted works Maple-News encourages you to stay away from MapleStory private servers.

  1. (Insert Name Here)

    thanks i never thought of joining a private server =)

  2. On my iPod Touch

    Who would ever want to join a private Maple Story server? It would be a complete waste of time! There would be what… 3 people on per server? And then who could you talk to and train with? Also even if you got to a high level really quickly with like, 300 exp per kill, it wouldn’t be very fun to take on Zakum or Pap alone…

  3. Because there is practically nothing NEXON USA can do, note NEXON USA. Koreans don’t care because they get enough $$$, and as long as the private servers don’t gain money, they aren’t violating any laws that I know of in Korea.

  4. Well, all of the servers coming out are false scams to get your password. Seriously, none of them are real, and after making a new account and using that to register, I found it was hacked within a day. Do not sign up for any private server. Nexon isn’t doing anything because they know they aren’t real, and that copyright laws will protect the game. If anyone tries to profit from it, they can immediately sue, but until then, it’s just considered a fansite.

  5. First, OdinMS IS real, and a number of my friend’s have played it. Its hardly a hack/scam. It also has a large player base. The server can hold a max of 200 I think and the majority of the time, it is full and you have to wait in line to get online.

    Second, what makes you think Nexon would EVER respond to this? Go to xtremetop100.com or a site like that and you will see hundred and hundreds of private servers! MU, WoW, Rag, etc…ALL private servers.

    There is really no reason to believe Nexon would be one of the first companies to ever take action against these servers.

    I also think .wind is right when he says these servers aren’t breaking any laws unless they make money off it selling the game’s coding and stuff. I know some private servers make money off them, but thats because they have people pay to be a mod and for CUSTOM items the makers of the servers made themselves.

    No law against selling your own coding.

  6. i hope they dont bann the private servers because that’ll be g@y and the original maple story is abusif because they take away people’s lives and make them poor

  7. Ernn…

    theres a REAL private server released…
    Its not fake

    True……

    not all private servers are scams…

    Better yet, install keylogger detector

    OdinMS is real though..

    They dont actually sell their Servers, they give it for free
    Second, they dont ask for your accounts
    OdinMS GM’s bans people who scams in their site such as “Matze will ban you if you dont give your GMS acc to me”

  8. First of all OMS can hold up to 1500.
    Countless people have already been playing (excluding me).

    From what I’ve heard the reason for not joining includes a few:
    1. Limited amount people
    2. Lacks fun when it comes to taking time to actually work hard and train, so forth.

    However the have they have the following:
    1. 8x exp

  9. really now, so you would rather play the real server, where there’s tons of assassins Ksing you.

    a shit load of Ice lightning Lukless mages assuming their the best.

    Nexon, taking away the money that you rightfully spent on mere pixels, because they want more.

    oh I get it, you must love the game because of the community, if not that you must love the game because the fast leveling process. no that can’t be it, It definately has to be the fact that the game is held by such a totally awesome very honest company -_- /Sarcasm

    I would rather play a private server so I can enjoy the Maplestory game, and not deal with the assholes in GMS, not have to spend my real money to make my character’s appearance more attractive, and to not deal with Nexon’s bullshit.

    go cry about it, Private servers aren’t illegal, they made their own coding to develop the game, it’s not like they hacked into Nexon and copy and pasted their own server, they made their whole game from scratch.

    I personally would rather see the downfall of Nexon, they do nothing but make people upset. need I remind you the incident where they banned all the European players without any prior notice?

    In private servers you at least have active GMs that help with problems. Where was Nexon for the past year and a half when all the hackers started up? Obviously not fixing the issue, it took them over a year to even start to do the mass banning, they should of been on top of it the moment it started, not jacking off in their leather chairs.

    for those of you naive enough to believe that the game is a scam, just go ahead and spend your mothers money on Nexon, because we don’t want unintelligent people like you in a private server.

    they’re better end of story.

  11. Private servers are way better than the real ones.. You can actually find a map to train in rather than go through the 19 channels spending hours trying to find a map to train in for a little while before getting KSed out

    no thanks, private server anyday

  12. ok all u guys who think its fake ur WRONG i play on the very first private maplestory server and there are ALOT more then just 3 ppl on there is at least 1500 on each day if u guys think im lieing go to http://www.odinms.de the registration are closed for now reason is becuz there abou to release 3rd job and they dont need a bunch of noobs asking wen 3rd is coming out

  13. Darkfuzz, you oviously havn’t looked into the private servers that are legit and currently up and running. private servers is NOT A SCAM. they DO NOT HACK UR REAL MS ACCOUNTS. for proof, take FIVE SECCONDS and go to google.com and type in “localMS” (one of the 2 most acknowledged ms private servers) literally the first website you’ll see is the home page, click on it and go to sign up, it will probably say (if ur reading this on 4/2/08 and around that date) that the user capacity is FULL, wich means there is currently 8000+ players signed up and active AND it gives you a live update on how many people are CURRENTLY online and actually playing the game. btw, if you havn’t already left this page because you were gulible enough to believe that private servers are scams, and ur still interested in a private server account, you can be patient and wait untill theres an inactive account wipe on local MS and sign up for an account, or you can see if Orbin ms has put it’s servers up yet. i’m pretty sure you can find the links for both these sites through google. Oh, and its IMPOSIBLE for these sites to hack your real ms (real ms as in official ms client account) account because you have to sign up for brand new accounts on their websites in order to play their private servers. Now, to contrast, darkfuzz isn’t completlywhen he says private servers can be scams, SOME, i repeat, *SOME* private servers can be scams, just make sure you dont give your real ms account info out to anyone, even if you trust them, it even says not to on the official ms website, and just to be on the safe side, its best not to sign up for private servers using the same login info you use for your real ms account. LocalMS and OdinMS, i believe, are the most popular of the private servers, and i’ve heard alot of people say (not only real MS palyers, but private server players too) that they’re the only 2 working private servers that are CURENTLY up and running, however i have seen alot of real ms, localms, and obinms players coming out with new private servers very soon in order to increase the limited capacity of private servers and private server players, such as: FrostMS, MapleGeek, etc. Now, if i havn’t drawled on and ur still reading :-D then we can discuss whether private servers are actually a waste of time. for one thing, it all depends on what your definition of “a waste of time” is. If you think leveling up super fast with no one to keep you company and little interaction is a waste of time, then yes you might find that private servers are boring, BUT if you’re just looking to get away from hackers and the increasingly crowded and laggy servers of real ms, and wish to level faster with an equaly increased exp and drop rate, then you might find private servers the answer to your prayers ^_^. most private servers offer increased exp and drop rates (such as exp X20 mesos X20) therefore it is very easy to get to higher levels and explore the benefits that come with “proness” (skills, nicer equips, higher level monsters you may have liked to fight) not to mention, if you’re like me you’ve been experiencing an increase in population and lagyness in real maplestory and more ksers and hackers you have to try to avoid. there are some downsides though, if you’re one of those people who aren’t interested in leveling up fast, and like levleing with other people, then you may find private servers a bit uninteresting. when you’re leveling you may (if you wish to) be alone. the benefit is that you have not only increased exp and drop from monsters, but the fact that theres no1 else there to ks you or hack. but you won’t have anyone to talk to, not a problem if you want to levle fast, talking only slows you down, right? you also wont exactly be able to do pqs, however i’m not even sure is private servers like localms and obinms even have this feature, given the obviouspaly of words: PRIVATE server, BUT i’ve never tried the party quests on either of these private servers, so they may have it, i’m not sure. anyway, private servers aren’t completely anti-social, most of them, for sure (localms and obinms) have active servers that even people who don’t play the private servers can acess, and i think the world servers are multiplayer servers where you can interect with other private server players in-game.

    don’t listen to that bullcrap that it’s pulling money from nexon, you can still play the official ms while playing private servers, if people dont feel like spending real money on pixels that exiper in a month, let nexon deal with that problem, if they can’t keep people in their game, then it’s probably not that great a gameto begin with. if it was that big a problem, they would have done something about it by now. they may not even be aware of private servers, in which case, they’re pretty far behind on thehacks and cheats era of the internet.

    my point is that not all private servers are boring or non-legit. like i said, it all depends on what your definition or ‘boring’ is. if you ever find an open registration and running private server, i encourage you to at least TRY it, if you dont like it, simply go back to playing real(official) ms, don’t come back with bull$h!t comments that deter curious gamers. if you do like the idea of private servers but, like me, are torn between to desire to level and the desire to socialize, then don’t worry private servers can be played while your real(official) maplestory client can still be executed, so you can play one when you feel like it and the other whenever you want.

    i hope i steered you in the right direction with this. btw, i reailzed i reffered to local ms and obinms alot, under NO circumstances am i trying to encourage you to join those private servers, i’m jsut trying to give you the pros and cons on private servers. the ONLY reason i kept reffering to those sites is because there are the only running private servers that i’m aware of AT THE MOMMENT. i believe localms’s user registration capacity is is currently full, and obin is adding some stuff to their server so its down at the momment.
    ~Happy Mapling or Private Servering XD

  14. ^^*i know i went on and on, but please,PLEASE read^^ at least the first paragraph* of the above comment i made, i dont want innocent gamers become hateful of private servers because of bull$h1ters that say they’re scams

  15. Server located in Canada,Montreal

    http://k3ims.ath.cx to register

    Join the fun !

  16. the reason is that nexon is not going to waste money and time to sue private servers… they said that they wont do nothing unless private servers sell nx or something like that

  17. can give mi maple story website?

  18. Private de*

  19. Lol, morons… Private servers with only a couple people? More couple thousand..

    The rates arn’t THAT high… And imagine being able to use all NX items without paying cash money… Nexon couldn’t stop them even if they tried, there is NOTHING that will stop them…

    On the official MS there are thousands upon thousands of DUMBASS people who ruin the gameplay… Private servers don’t tolerate BS… Idiots are banned.

    Nexon doesnt even follow its own rules, Maybe when it starts banning these immature children who do nothing but bother other players, then maybe… JUST maybe the official MS server will start to become worthy.

    Until the GMs start doing what hey are suppose to do, I think I’ll stick with private servers where I don’t have to deal with bullshit and I can actually have fun.

  20. I have my OWN private server.
    it has custom exp rates x30 drop rate 1000x meso rate
    i can change exp rate ingame by typing exprate (number)
    for now it’s 1750x

  21. omfg u guys r retarded

    roflmfao.
    u guys r completelyy retarded.
    i play on MapleCrusade.. its not at all a scam.. The rates for exp/meso/drop are 100x/100x/100x.
    that means u get 100 exp for a green snail rofl.
    i really hate that all of u r sayin that they r scams and i appreciate ms and privat ms player taking the time to explalin all of that to u. ur all noobs. lol.. most of the private servers let u register with a new account and just log into the game on that account instead of ur GMS account. i still wouldnt trust any of them enough to put in a GMS ID password or PIN. Just sayin. but really, google the $h1+ and i guarantee u will find the truth quickly…
    Happy maplin. :D

  22. MapleStory private servers suck so much. My brother has been trying them for so long and none work, lol. The people who run the servers keep putting them under closed beta like they’re going to get anywhere with it…-__- Seriously, do not join a private MS server.

  23. well umPRIVATE SERVERS ARE NOT A WASTE OF TIME
    MAPLESTORY IS A WASTE OF TIME GOD AND MS PSERVERS THEY WILL HAVE OVER 9000 PEOPLE ONLINE NOT 3
    AND NEXON CAN’T DO MU8CH CAUSE NOT CHANGING THERE STUFF IN ANYWAY
    TO CONNECT ALL YOU DO I CHANGE STUFF IN YORU COMP NOT THE CLIENT SO NEXON CAN’T DO ANYTHIGN ABOUT IT
    HA BEAT THAT!!

  24. dont sign up for x1000exp private servers…
    1 snail gives u 3000 exp, enough to get you to lvl 9.
    kill another one and u will go over lvl 10, which is bad if u want to get a 1st job

  25. i think it’s enough to get u over lvl 10… LOL

    .

  26. stupid newbs and your private servers.. whats the point of 1750x EXP? people level quick, and get bored, and then quit. If you did download a private server source, keep the EXP rates reasonable.

    And yes, private servers are real. The only ones which AREN’T REAL ARE THE ONES BEING ADVERTISED IN GMS in FM. THOSE ARE AN ATTEMPT TO STEAL YOUR ACCOUNT INFO. IF ANY SITE ASKS FOR YOU YOUR gMS ACCOUNT USERNAME AND PASSWORD AND PIN, AND YOU FILL IT OUT, THEN YOU ARE THE IDIOT. Private servers will NOT SPECIFICALLY ASK FOR YOUR GMS ACCOUNT INFO they dont need it PERIOD. They WILL need a login/username/password/pin to connect to the private server though. (Just use something DIFFERENT than that of your gMS account.)

    As far as private servers goes, it’s NOT illegal, as the server portion is coded completely from scratch to mimic that of Nexon’s servers. It only becomes illegal when you (1) modify the game client (2) profit off hosting the game.
    The programmers who wrote the private server code, theoretically CAN sell the program, as it is their own work. It’s not like we hacked into Nexon, and stole a copy of their code.

    @Moo – Private servers are very illegal. You don’t know anything about anything. Go read up on something called Copyright Law.

  28. Personally, I dont care if MS Private Servers are out there or not, its not like there profiting money maybe donations to run the server..So I really dont think its a problem with MS Official and Private Servers. It really depends on the person you know.

    Maybe players want to try out a different rate gaming experience who knows.

  29. is v54 came out already it’sreally stupid that we have been waiting for almost a week and still have ti wait f2

  30. MS Private Server Player

    MS Private servers are 100% legit. Why do you think they have a sign up button on thier homepage? If you go on a private server, use your REAL MS User and Pass… IT WONT WORK. You have to sign up and use that account.. Also real MS is stupid… THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PLAYERS ON AT A TIME not just 3… its just like regular MS except that you have dfferent rates and npcs sell different things and stuff like nx is from events and monsters and smegas are 1.5m and the effect ones, the ones in the corner, are from 6.5-8.5mill o.O
    YOU SUCK YOU HATER IF MS P SERVERS HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER HATER

  31. okay, private servers are worth it….

    so fuck u haters

    if anyone has a high rate server with nx items u can buy with mesos

    email me please at excalabur382@yahoo.com

    and send me a link, i just got done playing ancientms, its alright, but u want more…

    rates were 500/500/500
    i had a lvl 148 Ice Lighting Mage, couldnt find anything above lvl 100 items so i was new private

    its fun, not like normal maplestory where they make u poor

  32. Private servers are not a waste of time but normal maple story is. It takes forever to level on normal maple story its frustrating and not really fun. On a private server you can level faster and you can have crazy events that normal maple GMs would never do.

  33. I LOVE PRIVATE SERVERS :D ARBER MS FTW :D 500x exp 500x drop, NX , mostly 1200 players online in 2 channels, each day events, much fun :D les lagg then the official server , people that can be trusted (almost no scams , even with drop trading nx and zakum helms) helpfull GM’s and ofcourse its free :D:D:D no nexon ripping u off to buy nx but pianus that drops nx and nx slimes :P u can also win by events

  34. I have been playing private server for 3 weeks and in fact, have been quite an experience. At first i thought that it would be boring becuz of little players then i met a lot of ppl that was just as fun as in GMS. It was just less laggy. Although, a lot of you have not tried private servers, it’s just that a lot of them did nothing wrong. Sure you will find a scam here and there but the private servers that are recommended by friends are just as safe as GMS.

  35. Okay, okay, okay! I was reading this entire forum actually laughing at how much of a dumbass you people really can be, the people who think private servers are stupid anyway. Private servers ARENT illedal or companies like Blizzard, and Nexon would have taken action like, 4 years ago! And whoever said there’s like ‘3 people on’ is retarted also, you obviously know NOTHING because theres up to like 2000 people on some of these things, you never see 3 on…retard. And for you people who claim to be okay with it, and just think drop rates and exp rates arent reasonable, you need to open your eyes. I played the real Maple Story not to long ago, boring as hell once I hit level 8. I had no money because drop rate was pathetic, so I had to run ALL the way to ellina getting my assed kicked to become a mage. Leveling up once you hit level 8 takes YEARS! I think the best private server needs exp rate of around 1000, because then the game is FUN! I had a lot more fun playing on TeslaMS, because first kill got me to lvl 11, and after that, it slowed down, but I still got a lot of exp, its day 2 and im a lvl 90 ice/lightning wizard! day 2 on the real MS is level 11 nothing. Private servers are awesome, and all you people thinking theyre gay probbably havent even tried one, or even KNOW how to! So shut up, you dont know what your talking about.

  36. In response to Haggard, everyone is entitled to their opinion…but you don’t have to insult others while you’re at it.

    Please have the brains to actually spell correctly like you can actually read English and when you call others “dumb asses,” be advised that this isn’t a forum, it is a news article posted on a website run by WordPress where comments are posted via a form. If you’re too lazy to level, then go whine to NEXON or quit MapleStory. We don’t need to hear your bitching.

    If anyone is the dumb ass, it’s you. We don’t need yet another example of where MapleGlobal is heading. You’re the epitome of why Private Servers were created in the first place: to shut people like you up.

    I’m usually very lenient when it comes to idiotic comments, but enough is enough guys. Most of you have brains (I would hope), so please use them.

  37. You might as well stop, because your getting nowhere for stating your opinion. Nexon has every single right to sue and have the servers shut down…Haven’t you ever heard of copyright infringement? So before you write a post that has totally no meaning to it, I’d think you better do your reasearch. BTW report this poster just recieved a notice from a multinatinal law firm called Allen & Overy telling report this poster they have 14 days to “Cease and Disist” which means “stop” all illegal conduct in regard’s to Nexon’s intellectual property. In other words, if report this poster doesn’t stop and shut down, Nexon will probably sue and then have the server shut down as well.

  38. Itachikatana, I’ve deleted several of your posts because of your rude attitude and disrespectful comments.

    If you have an opinion, share it kindly and do not insult other posters. You’re entitled to your opinion, but if you expect us to respect yours, then respect ours and our posters.

  39. private server are worth it cos u get to do many better things inside but in the real maple which is maplesea for me in singapore u need money to get cash items which is not fun and not worth it and they are just earning tooooooo much money from other people and private servers are not illegal cos they dun earn money if u dun donate, so they r not forcing u to donate either so wats wrong with that and maplesea is not so fun after all cos the UPDATE PATCH IS WASTiNG MY HARD DISK SPACE AND EVERY PATCH MAKES THE MAPLESTORY FILE BIGGER!!!!!!!!

  40. Hey, for everyone of you you CANT get sued if your not gaining money, thats the truth, if you have a private server as long as you dont get any financial good for it ur fine!

  41. Dude are you fricking kidding me…Normal maplestory is just a struggle to get to lvl 30,while on your average private server it could take just a couple minutes.One Normal maplestory can you talk to a npc to go ANYWHERE.on normal maplestory can you talk to an npc to see a shop that has nearly every existing item in maplestory,INCLUDING items that hasnt even been released yet.On normal maplestory can you rebirth multiple times to become even a begginer that hits like 50 thousands…HELL NO YOU FRICKING CANT!SO STFU AND KICK NORMAL MAPLESTORY IN THE ASS FOR BEING SO RETARDED!

  42. And if you think im wrong then you can go F**k yourself :D

  43. actually the real maple should put meso rate higher because its too low that people hardly survive the exp rate can be like double?

  44. Ok can some one tell me a private server that works has over these 10010010 as in exp,mesos and drop rate? i really want to do a private server

    Dumb Nexon. Wanna stop me? Too bad! I pledge the fifth amendment in my right to say whatever I want without a pursue of hidden saying hurting the nation’s laws and/or rights of federal constitution. F off!

  47. Well I play both that’s right. After Maplestory with Big Bang it has much more reasonable exp rates. I agree that Private Servers are fun I meant i love RydahMS and Nexon has shut it down. Maplestory(Normal)Is fun too because of my friends playing it, so as private servers. The Private Servers are not ILLEGAL because-The Creators-Started from a stupid file to ONE whole part of the game client, they did not just waste their time, i mean you cant create a private server just by downloading the gms client and say MUAHHAHAHHAA I CREATED GLOBAL MAPLESTORY No..it takes time, effort and skill. They created nexons crap and created it there crap so I shall claim that is NOT illegal
