Tunneling solutions to lower latency

    Prior to entering it. Just an example of one of these. Made a few articles in the past about this as others. These solutions have been used by gamers for the previous 2 years in  buy maplestory mobile mesos. They were only blocked this year on May the 22nd which was when major DDOS attacks were happening and Maple had lots of downtime. When they solved the problems no one was able to connect with these services anymore. Most probably blocked alongside everything else.

    Since then, others and I have not only made an effort to contact these services concerning the issue connecting to Global Maplestory, but we also have contacted Nexon about it through support. Both services told me they might no longer join either even after running multiple tests and trying different things. I have gotten mixed responses from Nexon. I don't believe the first one understood what I was asking as he just said he'd pass it on to the programmers. I tried again a few months later and was met with a different reaction.

    As you can view them appear to think it's just Maplestory2 Mesos as any other private network. VPNs are clearly contrary to the TOS and while W[tfast and Battleping are equally personal networks that they alone should not be blocked as they're utilized 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 that Nexon would have the ability to see I'd assume.

    He also states the game should be playable with no services that you have a broadband connection that's really not true. With no solutions the general gameplay experience isn't wiki smooth. There are noticeable flaws in attacks and buffing. Also trying to pull off a dual flash leap close to instantly is impossible without these solutions.

    You simply must unblock them. I found that this too. Because you can see that this is quite recent. I don't know whether they're still trying to get it working together with the development team but a word on this could be nice.

    Finally these solutions are a NEED, not a want for maplestory discussion MMO gaming and online gambling in general. They encourage 80+ MMO games and if you go to any of their forums and ask whether the use of these services like Battleping is allowed they'll all tell you that it is. There's absolutely no reason why these ought to be blocked. Not everyone who's in GMS service place is on 20-50ms ping. Some of us have 200+ms ping particularly from Australia.Please do something about it. Maybe touch base with these and see if you're able to restrict access to such services only.
