The Age of Dekaron

It has been a year since I started working in mobiusgames (DME). From my first day at work, our team was tasked with marketing two new games that will change the playing field of online games for the Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia.

Regardless of other people’s opinions, there are some indubitable facts which the local gaming industry MUST acknowledge: GONG! and Dekaron started the trend that got the competition scrambling for new titles, much like MU Philippines did years ago.

Dekaron – I Will Wait For You

Hahahaha… ang korny nampotah.

Share ko lang tong video ni Kyla singing Wait For You (originally popularized by Elliot Yamin), kasi feeling ko everyone’s singing this song until bumalik ang Dekaron sa September 3. Oo, next week na yun, pero bakit ba, apektado pa rin kami eh. Hahaha…

Parang may withdrawal syndrome nga ata ako eh. Eto, nidodouble click ko ng paulit-ulit ung icon ng Dekaron. Nakasanayan ko na kasi na naka-window mode yung Dekaron ko habang nagtratrabaho. OO, inaamin ko, AFK ang Summoner ko madalas, pero naman di ba, sa dami ng trabahong nailabas ko for the whole week, it’s a wonder talaga how I managed to raise my summoner up to the level of 52.

Medyo nakakalungkot kasi ni-wipe-out ang servers after ng CBT, pero ganun talaga. S.O.P. yun ng industry. Tsaka iniisip ko, para na rin fair sa mga hindi nakasali sa CBT (exclusive kasi ang account keys). Well, if the buzz is any indication, mukhang mapapasubok kami sa Open Beta sa dami ng gustong mag-laro ng Dekaron.

I feel a special connection to the game Dekaron kasi while I was under the process of applying for the current position I have now, the Marketing Director of mobiusgames who was in charge of considering my application made me write several copies for “Dekaron”. And this was LATE NOVEMBER last year pa! Imagine, from late November last year, I’ve been researching na and familiarizing myself with the game. Bad trip pa, the 2Moons people started blocking IP’s outside N.America when I got wind of the game, so di ko na siya nalaro, unlike some people here.

So ayun, o di ba, sharing sharing moments tayo ngayon? Well, bakit ba, blog ko naman to. Hahahha… Ayaw nyo nyan, may personal aspect pa tayo ngayon.

Anyway, so yun, ako naman, si Mr. Eager Applicant, research-con-research talaga. Lahat ata ng videos sa YouTube ng Dekaron, pinanood ko. Pati forum boards ng mga gaming communities sa Europe at United States of America ininvade ko na para lang may matutunan tunkol sa Dekaron.

Back then, purely theoretical ang grasp ko sa game of Dekaron. Base sa videos, pictures, and discussions ng mga tao, mukhang “Dekaron/2Moons” ang pinaka-bayolenteng MMORPG in the whole maderpaking world.

Actually, I was really, really, likeohmygash, curious how mobiusgames would package Dekaron. Base sa pagkakaalam ko sa Dekaron, eh murahan kung murahan talaga ang mga NPC dito. As in todo “Pakshet ka! Wag kang pahara-hara sa daan, ‘ina mo!” pag trinanslate mo sa Tagalog. IN fact, bago magload ng todo ang game, merong warning na “For Mature Gamers Only” ang 2Moons/Dekaron. Eh, hello, retarded pa naman ang ating 3rd World Country of the Pilipins. Kita nyo naman, “entertainment” na pala ang mga ungas na tulad ni moymoy palaboy. So, dun palang, makikita na nating hindi masyadong sophisticated ang tastes ng Pinoy, amiirite? Hahahahaha…

Anyway, thankfully naman, DEKARON SEA is FAITHFUL TO THE ORIGINAL INTENT OF THE KOREAN DEVELOPERS. Medyo controversial ang 2Moons, oo, kasi todo balahuraan talaga kung balahuraan, pero yung essence of hardcore action and extreme gameplay of the original, we managed to translate that into the Dekaron SEA version. Dekaron SEA will definitely make your mommas cringe, pero they wouldn’t thrown a fit naman. OA naman nanay mo kung ganun.

So, ayun nga. Nako, bukas, magbloblog uli ako.

Check this out: doesn’t this remind you of a scene from the movie 300??? Don’t you just love how the blood drips down the cliff, oozing down the face of the ravine?

Tonight, we dine in HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OJT na Cool at Masaya

Naghahanap ka ba ng OJT na cool, at masaya? Meron ba non? Sagabal ba ang pag hahanap mo ng OJT sa paglalaro mo?

Gusto mo bang maging part ng team mobiusgames pero kasalukuyan ka pang nag-aaral?

O baka may kilala kayong naghahanap ng pwedeng pag-OJT-han?

Well, eto ang sagot dyan:

Got Balls, Will Crush

If anyone’s curious, here’s my GONG! schedule:

Monday to Friday, I play GONG! before I doze off to sleep. I usually create a room in the ALL Division. This way, I can get to play with GONG!sters from all levels. I start off with a random map, and then move through the different maps. I usually call it the “Tour of Asia” room, and I encourage GONG!sters who join me to stay for the whole tour. It’s more fun that way, like we’re on a virtual World Cup.

Also, I don’t give away items, and there’s no prize in defeating me (except for that sense of self-worth and smugness that you get for pawning a [GM] character). If you’re playing with me for material gain, please check out this page instead. The GONG!sters team are constantly coming up with events and promos to keep everyone happy, so watch out for those!

What I really like about GONG! is that it’s cleverly designed so that you won’t bother using bots and cheats to play the game. If you try cheating, or using a 3rd party program in GONG!, you miss out on all the fun! So, what’s the point, right? GONG! is a game you play for the LuLz of it.

See you on the field!

Behold!

It’s the upcoming new set of items for the hottest strategic action mmog in the Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia!

So far, the Rakion blog from team mobiusgames hints that the new patch will have themed sets for all character classes. No word yet on their prices, and availability. There are hints that the new set items will come with a new patch that’s going to be called “A Whole New World” or “Aladdin”, they’re still being mysterious about it.

So, Rakionistas, alert. Blurk (blog lurking, hehehe) around the I Hug Noobs blog for more details and updates!

Hmm, any comments on the new set items?
