About Wizet and Nexon
Wizet is a game development studio located in Seoul,South Korea, and is popular for its hit game Maplestory. Wizet developed a franchise system and expanded its services to Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, USA and Europe. Eventually, Wizet reached the global world after having finished developing key features of MapleStory.
Wizet started as a small company with ideas to create yet another Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. With the financial resources from their parent company Nexon, Wizet was capable of developing and even selling merchandise of their popular game, Maplestory. In the end, Wizet merged with Nexon.
So for now, Wizet = Nexon. Nexon is also a publisher but not for Maplesea. However, Nexon is the game creator. Thus, Nexon’s role is to fix bugs, create maps, create items(be it cash or non-cash). Anything in game is done by Nexon. All Maps belong to Nexon. The patch timings,patches and server checks are all done by Nexon. Nexon modifies the in game contents.

The Game Masters in Maplestory acts as in game “police”. Their role is to catch hackers or scammers. They are not suppose to fix bugs or create maps. In future, please avoid posting for GMs to fix bugs or create a new map.
