It seems that they have compensated for some of those hacking issues the past week, and some are still released into VIP sections of many hacking sites, and there have also been many reports of huge bannings of thousands of players across the servers. Many people that had a lot of hacked items and many people that duped.
Due to an unscheduled server maintenance, MapleStory was unavailable for a large part of Monday. We understand that many Maplers lost the opportunity to play during this time and have suffered from inconsistent service for the past week, so to make it up to you, please enjoy 2x EXP and Drop events this Saturday and Sunday!
When:Saturday, June 11th from 2PM – 4PM Pacific (5 PM – 7PM Eastern) and 6PM – 8PM Pacific (9PM – 11PM Eastern)
Sunday, June 12th from 2PM – 4PM Pacific (5 PM – 7PM Eastern) and 6PM – 8PM Pacific (9PM – 11PM Eastern)
Hope to see you in-game soon and happy Mapling!

It seems that so far the emergency maintenance fixed the channel crashing, but to some sources are saying that there are still VIP methods of the channel crashing. According to several threads on BasilMarket and SouthPerry it seems that duping is still going on, but it isn’t as bad as before this maintenance. Basically, for the most part of the community, it seems that Nexon really took too long to do anything, and that has practically destroyed the economy.
11:02 pm 6/6/11 UPDATE!
2:52 pm 6/6/11 UPDATE!Well, it seems that Nexon has identified the situation, and have called for an unscheduled server maintenance. They did not release a specific time frame the maintenance will be finished in, so we must wait. You will know when we know!**Update** The maintenance is now complete as of 7:30 PM Pacific (10:30 PM Eastern) and all game services are now live. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
Update: The maintenance is estimated to end at 8 PM Pacific (11 PM Eastern). All Cash Shop items will be extended by 24 hours. Thank you for your patience.Hello Maplers,
With the help of the community, we have identified a serious issue involving Cake vs Pie 2 that resulted in channel crashes. MapleStory will be unavailable for the time being as we resolve this issue. We have not yet determined how long this maintenance will be and will make updates when available.
We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused and thank you for your patience.

Hello, MNNians, as I report this(6/5/11, 10:36 pm est) channels are being crashed in several servers. Most servers from Scania to Galicia are being hit. Arcania, El Nido, and Zenith you cannot tell at first, but they have been hit as well. There have been about two explanations to why the channels are crashing.
Explanation 1: Dupers across the servers are beginning to dupe items at a mass pace to cause the server crash, and pump out more and more items.
Explanation 2: On http://w8baby.com, there was a channel crasher that was released earlier today. It utilizes a packet in the Cake vs Pie event, and the packet must be spammed, which afterwards causes the channel to automatically crash!
It is Sunday, so most Nexon America employees are off. Knowing when this problem is resolved will be a while. We will let you know when we know. No news yet on the main site, forums, twitter, or facebook. BasilMarket and many other MapleStory fan sites have several threads of players experiencing problems, and it begins with lag, and ends with a bit fat d/c.
Here are some Screenies of the channels crashing.
Will post, ASAP. Minor Technical Issues.
