When will maplestory 2 be open beta
Nexon announced today that MapleStory 2 will be running a second closed beta test and will have double the players as the first test. No word on when CBT2 begins yet, but Nexon did tell players in a blog post to keep an eye on their social media channels to catch the start date. The reason behind a second Closed Beta is so that we can really stress test our servers, since we are planning to double the capacity of Maplers we accept to play in Closed Beta 2.

There will be more ways to get accepted into Closed Beta 2 which include: website sign ups, key giveaways, a new web activity event with special rewards, and upcoming Founder's Packs purchases.
