Yah but have they made the game fun? I mean with games like Free Realms showing how a cheaper game can run ... does MapleStory even matter anymore? I know people love it but time to move on....there are so many better choices.

Does that graph make ANY sense at all to anyone out there? Or is it just me, and I have lost all sense of math analysis?

That graph says, to me, that experience is reduced at higher levels. Coming later and slower.

Eh, never been a fan of graphs, but I think I understand it.

The dependent is level, while independent is exp.
The old curve is steeper than the newer one, and goes up further as well. This means that the amount of exp needed in the older one goes up much faster. The new one reduces the necessary amount while softening that curve so its more rounded out.

Least that's how I interpret it. What's being said though seems to go against what the graph shows, since it only says xp gain is being boosted, and not the needed amount. The end still matches to me, but the means seem different.

(Of course I could just be misreading it while still grasping the basic concept XD)

The weird thing about the graph is actually the ridiculously long tail, which seems to imply that the curve is only changing for the final 20 levels or so. It's possible that the change is difficult to visualize, but more likely this graph is just a fanciful illustration.

Yes, I see it now. The graph is saying that it now takes less exp to gain the final levels.
