Producer Blog - Project New Leaf

Dear Maplers,

Welcome to Project New Leaf! Project New Leaf is our initiative to make MapleStory 2 a better game by addressing your concerns and feedback.

With our Project New Leaf site, we will be sharing in-game changes that we’d like to propose based on your comments, and will provide the earliest timeline we expect to implement such changes. Once this happens, we will set phases to go through each of the topics in order and take in additional feedback from players like you. Generally, each proposal will go through the following phases:

  1. Present achievable, in-game changes through a proposal blog based on initial player feedback
  2. Begin working on the changes while simultaneously gathering additional feedback through the links provided in each blog post
  3. Make any necessary changes to the initial proposal and share the updates through the blog
  4. Roll out the live update in-game including any new changes
  5. Close the topic once relevant changes have been made to the game

In most cases, we expect it will take about a week for us to report back the finalized details based on any additional feedback we receive from you after posting the initial proposal blogs. Please know that this timeline could differ depending on the topics under review. To help expedite this, we would like to ask that any feedback you provide through links on a proposal blog be limited just to the topic(s) being discussed within that specific blog.

We absolutely do want to hear your voice on all topics, because this project is all about listening carefully and making the changes players want! It’s true that not everything can happen at once, given the limitations of managing a live game. It’s also true that not every request can be granted, because we have values for MapleStory 2 that we truly believe in. However, this doesn’t mean we aren’t aware of other issues, and we do actively discuss if there’s anything we can still change to make the overall gameplay experience better for you. At the end of the day, your satisfaction playing MapleStory 2 is the utmost goal for us to achieve.

To that end, we are opening our first Project New Leaf thread that will function as a location where you can bring in your suggestions on the topic(s) of your choice. This space will serve as a catch-all for us so that important key topics you have will not be missed and will be discussed in future iterations throughout Project New Leaf.

Thank you for being patient with us. We’re excited about this opportunity to work with you to come up with the best direction for the game. Let’s change MapleStory 2 together!
