Heres the reason behind Maple Story and their "50 million unofficial players", this game is free, hacks galore to the max. I wouldn't say more popular, I'd just say people don't feel like forking over 18$ a month to play a game.

My little brother has been on this for about 1 year now and loves the game. Pretty simple hack and slash formula with thing to tinker with on the side. But it can get very addicting. About time they get some sort of coverage. I just hope this doesn't mean monthly charges now :(
