A Message from CM Astrea : Regarding Attack Speed Limit

Dearest Maplers,

Over the course of the past several weeks, we have received many reports of an alleged attack speed limit bug, where attack speeds were rendered noticeably slower and speed boosters seemed not to take any effect.

We would like to explain that this was regrettably an inevitable result from a new bot detection mechanism that was implemented in our V183 patch.

I'd like to firstly apologize for not being able to attend to all of your individual messages on Facebook immediately, as we were also verifying the issue on our end. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience and worry that the above incident may have caused you.

We are aware that many of you have spent a tremendous effort in farming honor points and rolling inner ability to achieve your preferred stats. We definitely do not want all these to be wasted.

As such, we would like to inform everyone that the attack speed limit and related mechanics will be reverted to the previous status during our upcoming patch Version 184, and that we will continue our best to find alternative measures to combat the bots infestation that has been crippling our game.

Thank you for your continuous love and support!

Sincerely yours,
