My name is Sam (actually that’s just my nickname). I’m 18 years old and from UAE, but you can always refer to me as ‘Simply’. Just some points on how SimplyBowmen came to the creation.
Actually, I have started playing Maplestory even since I was 15 when I saw a bunch of friends playing the game with very much enthusiasm. I wondered how could a 2D game be so much fun. I gave it a try, and before I knew it, I already was enjoying it.
My first character was a Bowman named ToxicBullets (I guess that explains my Sleepywood ID), I really loved the Bowman class, and I actually made it to level 130 on him. But just to the fact that he was an off-ranker, made it a lost cause leveling him up any further (never let your cheating sibling ever play on your account, trust me).
After reaching 130, my maple career as greatly collapsed, for some reasons I never knew why (could have it possibly been my FA-build, thrust less character or being an off-ranker, or just all of them?) . So I decided to start new and fresh. A clean slate that no one will ever have to judge me upon. So I took all my hard earned equipments and money and transferred all of them to my new account.
Starting fresh had many benefits for me, I’m now very informed regarding where to train, how to train and the hottest training spots for a Bowman. I also saved myself so much money spent on NX just resetting those additional points in STR, and knowing that I have all my equipments and money. I asked myself, why not?
The name ‘SimplyBowmen’ popped in my mind when I went shopping for music records. There was a whole shelf of records named ‘Simply [insert music genre here]‘ I remember getting some of Simply Mozart and Simply Classical Gold. I was like “hmm, why not SimplyBowman?” , but of course, the IGN ‘SimplyBowman’ was taken by a level 14 Archer (Don’t you just hate it when low-levels get the Epic names!), so I just made it from ‘Bowman’ to ‘Bowmen’.
And that is my Story!
