    I found Mabi through a sidebar ad. I think it was maybe 2009. They had just released iria and i remember going through all the video trailers for the game. I was like whoa, this is the most advanced .

    Yep, same.

    Was playing Maple and saw the Announcement of the coming of Mabinogi. The Lorna and pan trailers made me really want to see what else it had. She was hitting a tree to lose weight, what other games have such a thing! xD

    After beta testing maple story Nexon advertised Mabinogi beta testing and so i joined within the first wave. Then I beta tested Dragon Nest and Vindictus, Dungeon Fighter Online and Riders of Icarus....I stopped since most games started getting redundant in their game-play and story-lines. Probably wont beta test til something more revolutionary will come out.

    Someone I was buddies with in college who I met playing arcade games that I am one of the people who helped push him down the rabbit hole of anime. Eventually we started playing RO, and few years after college was talking to him, and he got me into mabi (a few months prior to Gen 3 being released)

    Some years later he just quit, and hasn't been back as he got fed up with Nexon's business practices with gachas in the game. Unfortunately I lost track of him as the IM we used to keep in touch shut down too.

    I joined around January 2013 at the insistence of a player whom isn't here anymore, I managed to be here such that I actually experienced the old-system of only being able to rebirth once every three weeks. Since then I've gone over Level 9000, mastered a ton of talents, and I'm currently unlikely to stop anytime soon. I'm much happier with Mabinogi now, with all the additions/changes they've added, than I was when I first joined.

    I was playing maplestory with my boyfriend(at the time, and husband now) and he saw an add. We decided to check it out, and have played since 2008 or so.

    I joined around roughly at Oct 4th (few days after my birthday) in 2013. I was bored that time in another MMORPG game called Grand Chase and i had a dutch friend which i met from there. So yeah, i was very bored one day and i was chatting to him in Skype, so i went at him and asked to suggest me any good games and he said "try Mabinogi". At first, i was unsure and didn't know if i wanted to try it, so i watched some few, silly, very old/outdated videos of Lorna and Pan's journey (which i found in official Mabinogi page??? I think) and thought that the game looks very lame, so i decided to ignore it. After few months later, i was bored again and finally decided to download Mabinogi anyway. I created account, downloaded Mabinogi, made a character in Alexina server (joined Alexina just because it had "New" tag on it and i assumed that's where most fresh people must be gathered so i won't be that behind and such), and THEN decided to meet my friend, but actually forgot to ask in which server he was LOL. Apparently he was in Tarlach server (R.I.P) and i was like "Meh, gonna create another account and go to Tarlach server", but THANK GOD i didn't since i was too lazy that time. Would have regretted a lot. :trollface:

    The Lorna and Pan video's are what lured people because people wanted to have fun just like the way the video showed. It was more fitting for that time frame when it was released. It's more of a simple general tutorial for the game without actually going into the game. Only Tir was open at the time and later on in the video's Dunbarton and Bangor was open. Not many skills were available only bolt magic and the basic melee( smash, windmill, defense and counter), range only had magnum shot.

    I can't imagine what people would think if they went into the game with only the basic skills...and your highest melee weapon was a mace and kite shield until Bangor was accessible. And grinding all the in-game gold doing mostly Ciar dungeon just to buy those items. Oh, and no re-births for a few years.

    I hope this isn't considered necroing but this was on the first page and I wanted to say how I joined, too! ; w ;
    It was two years ago. I used to roleplay as some character from Katekyo Hitman Reborn and I finished season 2 of SAO, and I wanted to play an mmorpg. A friend told me to play Maplestory, so I downloaded the nexon launcher and was checking out Maplestory when I clicked on 'All Games' or something, and seen Mabinogi. I seen the gameplay, and I seen that it was a "Do anything you want" type of game (WHICH I LOVE) so, I scrapped MS and downloaded mabi instead. I was actually about to quit mabi because it was too tough, and a bit boring until I met my group of friends. As the years went on, I had lost contact with them but I have also made new friends. I had a mentor during the early years, and he still teaches me things to this day. I have learned that the best gift to give is a helping hand, so I do my part and help in any way I can.

    It makes me glad that I met who I did, and gotten this far in only two years.

    Oh, and I probably will never quit mabi because I spent $1k in a single year, nearing 2k now this year. /shrug emoji Might be one of Nexon's favorite cash cow BUT I CANT HELP IT, THE GACHAS MAN. (:

    $1-$2k is nothing for a large corporation.
    I haven't quit and spent a total of around $100 over the years. xD

    I feel you dude. My husband found out that I spent over 700 bucks this year. He was pretty pissed. But what he doesn't know is that it's actually way higher than what he found. Way higher.

    We have too many guns in the house. >_>

    Whatever you do, I advise you not to anywhere near half of your paycheck on gaming.
    In the end, it's all about discipline.

    Oh man D:. Kensamaofmari is right. It is all about discipline. It is also a good rule of thumb to spend no more than 20-25% of your paycheck every month. The gatchas are pure gotcha baits.

    I think I just stumbled onto Mabi while I playing MS.
