We announced on January 28 that MapleStory will be changing the method
for starting the game (click here for more info). To prepare for this
change, MapleStory will have an update this week that will make a change
to the login procedure for the game.
When you log into MapleStory for the first time after 2/10/2010, you
will be prompted to create a PIC (Personal Identification Code) on the
Character Select screen. After you have a PIC you will no longer need to
enter your old PIN at login.
A few notes on PICs:
1. PICs can be 6 to 16 characters long.
2. PICs can use letters and numbers and are case sensitive.
3. PICs are entered on the Character Select screen.
