Dekaron SEA New Event

Glorious new promo from the guys of Team Dekaron. Check it out.

It’s all about EXP Boost this Lenten Season. Boom, baby.

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.

Post Departure Post

Ok, so this feels a little awkward.

This is my first post after my departure from mobiusgames.

I’ve decided to continue keeping this blog. I guess, on the upside, I can now blog about games outside of mobiusgames, now that I’m technically an impartial (ha!) game blogger. Previously, to avoid getting the company in trouble, I refrained from blogging anything against (or in favor of) games under other publishers.

But, hey, chumps, no one can hold me down now… hehehehe!

Ok, first casualty: Grand Chase from LevelUp. Is it just me or is this just like Rakion watered down for kids? Apparently, its selling points are:

  • it’s a fighting game
  • it’s free to play
  • you can play as a team fighting against another team (a.k.a. Team Deathmatch in Rakion)
  • you can play on “Survival” mode, which is a free-for-all last-man-standing mode (or “Solo Deathmatch” as it’s known in Rakion).

Now, isn’t that everything you love about Rakion in the first place? Except Rakion‘s in full 3D, and the maps are fully rotating. PLUS, Rakion’s got more modes: there’s Golem War, Boss War, Stage, Team Deathmatch, and Solo Deathmatch. [1]

Why go for something safe, when you can go all the way in the most extreme online brawling game?

Also, show some love, chumps: check out the Rakion GM’s blog!

Dekaron SEA on OPEN BETA


Dekaron SEA now on Open Beta beginning September 3, 10AM (Philippine Time) – That means 10 AM in the Philippines, not 10 AM “Filipino Time” hahaha…

That’s less than a day away, chumps. Maybe you think you’re ready for this, but nothing can prepare you for the most motherfucking bad-ass awesome gaming experience you can have online.

BTW, you’d have to pardon me whenever I get too excited and I start cursing out expletives. I’ll censor myself, don’t worry. Like fuck, yeah.

I’ll answer some frequently asked questions, that’ll put my job at risk. Hahaha…

Will there be a server wipe-out after the OBT? NO. I’ve told you before, THERE’S GOING TO BE NO SERVER WIPEOUT after the OBT.

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.

Dekaron OBT – It’s a date!

I was with Arnold, our Project Manager for Dekaron, on my way up to the office this morning, and I asked him if I can start announcing when the OBT’s for The Most Motherfuckin’ Bad-Ass Anticipated MMORPG of the Year starting, and he said, “Why not?”

So, ladies and gentlemen, if you had been reading The Dekaron Blog for quite some time, let me just confirm to you that YES, the OBT’s going to start this September 3 (well, if things go as planned, of course. I’ll tell you IN ADVANCE if there’s any change in this).

And NO, there will be no character wipe after the OBT.

Mark your calendars, kids. Mark it with your own blood. Coz Dekaron‘s comin’ back, and this time there’ll be hell to pay.

Dekaron is The Most Anticipated MMORPG of the Year, and has been hailed all over the world as an international bestselling game title for its visually stunning graphics and extreme action gameplay.

Dekaron is FREE for the Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia courtesy of mobiusgames, and GameHi.

Dekaron on Open Beta begins September 3, 2008.
