Real life/blog-related

Hi there! My name is Sietse, I’m currently 19 years old and I live in Groningen, The Netherlands. I’m attending the University of Groningen for the study Information Science.

Back in July of 2011, after being inspired by popular MapleStory-related blogs, I decided to create my own blog about the North American version of MapleStory (GMS), since I used to play on that version a lot more often than on the European version.

During the years 2011-2014 I was actively writing posts about MapleStory updates, while my life was getting busier and busier. At some point I was in my last year of high school, when I could not combine writing posts and studying for my exams any longer. I also started losing interest in the game. This was in 2014, when I wrote my last post for a long time.

In 2016, just after the fifth job update was released, I kind of got my interest for this game back. For now, there still isn’t much to see on this blog, but who knows, maybe I’ll return in the future!


MapleStory-related

I started playing Global MapleStory somewhere back in 2006. Being a 9/10-year old, my English was very bad, so I switched over to EMS fairly quickly after it was released. I would play with my brother and friends all the time, and I remember hitting level 20, the required level for Kerning PQ, used to be a huge achievement for me…

Unfortunately, good things can’t continue forever, and my brother quit MapleStory after a few years, and so did a lot of friends. I didn’t want to play alone, so I quit as well… Only to return some time later, somewhere in 2010, after the Big Bang update. This time, however, I chose to play on GMS again, as this version of the game had more content, and I didn’t have friends that played on EMS anyway. I made a lot of online friends, and really enjoyed the game. I played regularly until 2013/14, which was the point that I started losing interest in the game.

Right now, I play MapleStory every now and then, just to check out new content that gets released. Most of the characters that I created over the years are on Windia, while I created my first ever character on Scania. My highest-leveled character is a Kaiser, which I usually play to check out new content.
