After playing for 4 months and getting two chars to level 195+, it is time for my review of the game.
For everyone who was disapointed by Maplestroy Europe, Latale is the way to go. In comparsion to Maplestory, the grapics are better, i load the game faster, the gameplay is much less "mash one button", the classes are much better balanced, i level MUCH more quickly (if you know what your doing, you can get to level 195 in three weeks), and most importantly:
A LOT LESS PAY-TO-WIN THEN MAPLESTORY. Endgame is VERY achivable with low budget. Really, you only really need a Warpcrystal (which needs recharge, which however can be bought ingame) for teleporting around (i got mine from an event even !) and maybe a syringe for healing potless - everything else can be got for ingame currency!
The controls can be annoying in the beginning (double tap to run) but nothing that will be a problem after a week of play.
I should note that i had an massive game breaking bug with the steam version (Game crashes by pressing any keyboard button, though gamepad works(though not advisable)), BUT playing Latale through the OGP Launcher did not cause any problems.
