It was a difficult problem to find, the thing that happened was that initial packets were being sent over and over to the server.

I made the server to validate all incoming data against server data and logical user/connection state and on fails just kill the connection. It's because of that the other 500 employees could continue to work.

In the end it was a virus on that system that did some wacked stuff, it would even autokill the malware bytes process which was the visual queue of something being dirty on that system.

For all the people hating on MapleStory, remember, its better than WoW in the fact that you don't have to pay, you can get cash shop, but you don't have to, and every since the Big Bang patch, its much much easier to level. Before I had to grind grind grind for awhile and I just got bored, afterwards I went from level 40 to 50 in a couple days on my dual blader and training at hectors at level 55 I get around 0.08% exp a kill, before I would train and it would be around 0.03% a kill, it is a HUGE increase. MapleStory isn't a grindfest anymore. The economy in Global MapleStory is flourishing because it is really easy to get mesos now, all you have to do is loot or have a pet that has a meso magnet and you are all set, I don't merchant at all and I can usually get 10 mill pretty easy if I need it.

In other words, easy is good.

I think you need to go play some Project 1999 to learn what a real MMO should be.

To all the haters, you seem to forget the userbase in MS is mostly 8-16yrs old.

I would be ashamed simply because mana pots are unaffordable.
