Reflecting about “the scouts”.

A week of application, 3 days of intensive training and a day for evaluation. 15 people managed to reached the final spot!

The team have decided the final verdict:

Some people might know the people who will use any of the name listed on the image above. So congratulations to those who passed the training period and i hope there will be no hard feelings for those who didn’t make into the final cut.

Attention players from Poland! i am still accepting CS application from your country so for those who have the guts to what it takes to be. kindly submit your application to wyd_cm@gamenetworks.com and make sure that you follow my instruction carefully.

Reflecting about “+1 to age!”

Looks like my blog is crying for update! Did anyone miss me and I am asking for apologies for the lack of updated in this pretty little world. Anyway so here are some head ups about the latest “this and that’s while I am away from the blogosphere…

The Reasons to Celebrate.

Give your self a pat in the head for  being a part of creating a milestone by reaching 100,000+ Unique visitors in the CM;s blog!

And of course i express my gratitude for all those who remember and greet me thru the forums… +1 to my age! The celebration can be found here.

The Forum  Community.

Another reason to celebrate in the Game Networks Forum.

I can never explain the happiness that I felt when I see the Game Networks forum alive. As you know it used to be a “dump site” and people are not even aware of its existence. But look at it now! It is like a phoenix rising from its ashes. Wydian’s are continuously joining and participating in online discussion and sometimes e-drama which are quite essential for the forum community.

So let me express my gratitude to the players/forum users who keeps on inviting their friends to make our forum alive.


The New CM.

rawr

Meet CM Mickey my lovely assistant in handling our beloved community. If I am not around in-game they she will be there. Just be nice to her ok and don’t give her a headache! She’s still on the process of learning how to become one!


The Scouts

So who wants to be my assistant (beside CM Mickey of course)? First of all guys and dolls the job of a Community Scout is not a games we are doing some serious business here. Imagine you will act as some sort of a Community Manager of the person who speaks your common language or residing in your respective continent?

With great power comes great responsibility… and also great rewards that can be doubled! You heard it right doubled depends on the circumstances.

Anyway I already observed those applicants who applies just for the “rewards”.. . (The reward is really tempting but hey although it’s a part of our objective there is still a price to pay.)

I just noticed that some applicants didn’t even bother to read the instruction on the event page and that will result on either a bad impression from me of course or totally rejecting their applications.

Most of you guys received my email reply right? And I’m serious about it. Consider interacting in our forums a part of the screening process.

So for now good luck future scouts I wish you all the best.

The Updates.

Getting bored with the current game play? Well here is something to look forward to. Somewhat big is coming to town?  Talk about the Spanish word “Quatro”? Ring a bell guys and dolls or you still don’t have a clue? We already received the patches from the developers and the team is currently busy on the localization and testing of the Episode 4 Patch aka 7.53.

There is no tentative date for its release but if ever we finished the localization process earlier as expected then it will be good!

I will post some “what to expect” stuff in this blog soon…

So better watch out and better not cry because episode 4 is coming to town! Hopefully by Christmas (or earlier!).

Reflecting about “Community Scouts”

WYD Global Launches Community Scout System.

They will become the assistants of the community managers and they will handle some task such as community coordinators, feedback gathering and forum moderation.

The recruitment period will start on Nov.4 and will end on Nov 18, 2008.

Reflecting about Battle Dungeons!

Because of our high registration this month WYD Global Team is proud to announce the addition of a new system update, the Battle Dungeons as sign of our warm appreciation to the continuous support of our gamers.

Trailer:

Risking your life while killing mobs in the outside world is not the only way to level up or gain items in WYD Global. There are also alternatives we call “Battle Dungeons”

Battle Dungeons are PvE dungeons that Wydians can jump into. Battle Dungeon keys can be bought from NPC Aki merchant in Armia Town. However, there are 3 different variations of the Battle Dungeon to try, and all are available through NPC Aki. Each of these BDs also comes with a character class restriction that must be respected and some are only available to Guild Zone owners.

Battle Dungeon Key (Normal) – Mortals (Guild membership is required on using the key.)
Battle Dungeon Key (Mystic) – Gods (Needs to own a Guild Zone on the server you are trying to use the key)
Battle Dungeon Key (Arcane) – Celestials / Soul (Needs to own a Guild Zone on the server you are trying to use the key)

To use a Battle Dungeon Key you need to be in a town and if you are trying to use a Battle Dungeon Key (Mystic and Arcane) you need to be a member of the guild that owns a guild zone in the server you are trying to use the Battle Dungeon Key on (except for Mortal Characters ) .

Battle Dungeons (Normal)

Battle Dungeon (Normal) is the easiest among the three kinds. This can be bought from the NPC Aki in Armia Town. Only mortals are allowed inside the Battle Dungeons (Normal) and they need to be a member of a guild that owns a guild zone.

Battle Dungeon (Mystic)

Battle Dungeon (Mystic) This can be bought from the NPC Aki in Armia Town. Only Gods are allowed inside the Battle Dungeons (Mystic) and they need to be a member of a guild that owns a guild zone.

Battle Dungeon (Arcane)

Battle Dungeons (Arcane) is the hardest among the three. High level equipments and some of the most coveted item are dropped here. The ticket can be bought from the NPC Aki in Armia Town. Only Celestial Gods and Soul character are allowed inside the Battle Dungeons (Arcane). You need to be a part of a guild who owns a guild zone to be able to enter the realm.

When will it be? Of course TODAY!

Reflecting about “October Insights”

Wake up guys and dolls because it is already October! Do you remember my event highlights last September? I bet you did! Anyway let me give you my opening salvo for this month because we will make you feel busy this month!

Battle of the Noobs!

I know you guys are craving for an event that will boost the newbies so our team decided to conduct a special event just for our beloved mortal and for the reward it is something that you can’t even imagine.
I won’t spoil most of the details because it will be up on Tuesday! So better watch out and better not cry if ever you are still a newbie up to now!

Fill me in!

And of probably this is another event named after a song! Got entertained by newbcaKes funny comics strip? WYDian’s its now your time to create your very own comics strip. So keep that creative juiced flowing and win tons of exciting prizes!

Catch an Angel!

And oh we are not talking about Kafma IV most popularly known as Kephra’s best friend forever but this time but we are talking about another angel. Imagine an super easy hide and seek that involves active participation even if your outside the game or inside. Just make sure that those “Print Screen Button” is working!

Shout for Joy extreme changes!

Instead of 2 laks you will win 3 laks permanently! But the catch is you need to answer our question within 3 minutes or else. The questions will be changed. Good News! We will be removing the “guess the server on where the cm is” because I know that you guys feel that it is a waste of shouts and the implementation? This Tuesday!

That’s not all stay tuned for more updates here in the CM’s blog
So prepare yourself because it will be a bumpy ride this October!

Reflecting about the Pig Race!

NOTE: This is the first ever V-Log  (Video Log or Video Blog ) that i will post in my blog. So watching streaming videos are required. I may post lots of Vlog soon.

GM Loki got it and I also have it? Who think that Pigs or Wild Boar mounts are one of the not so popular or even useless mounts in-game! Well we will prove you wrong guys and dolls since from this day onwards we will appreciate the importance of our shiny little yellow creature.

The Race Car!


It all started out of boredom when I decided to held an unofficial mini event called the Pigs race. Certainly it was unofficial and as I supposed it is a surprise as a result the players are expecting nothing from us. But as a Good Samaritan we gave a little bit of appreciation trophy to the player who lends some of their time to have fun with us.

Originally the event materialized because of the request of the gamers in the past. They want a race event but as we all know it is a little bit impossible because some characters have a movement speed advantage by default compared to other characters especially Foema’s. Presenting the test run!

The Course : GM LAND

So Loki and and I decided to make a test run in the famous GM landia. Which is a graphically suitable for a race track but technicaly none because the  problem is some of the red tiles are not acessible but hey no one can stop this event so we give it a go.

Loki win the race and at the end we ended up PK’ing each other and it even involves CM T and claire whose in the GM land for the spotlight interview.

The Real Deal

More than 15 players participated in this event casual players to prominent players alike. Some are riding wild boars and some comes with their trusty little pig while some become the pigs or wild boar itself. As I said during the event “Ride a pig or be a Pig!” and I mean it literally. Special thanks to the MountCaptor who sells a transformation scroll that can turn you to a monster of your choice. There are even some spectators who arrive at the event just to watch.

The Course : FROM AZRAN to ARMIA TOWN


So here is the real course from Azran to Armia the first one to arrive at the armia bridge or pass Alia and KawaiiSan ( The Goal ) will win the trophy ( 1 Laktorerium Powder ).

Image from Alia

At the end of the race players hanged out inside armia town to show of their pigs as well as too cheer off and motivate each other and of course the much awaited second course.

The Final Course: Armia Town to Azran Town Ship (thyrene)

In this course we need to race from Armia Town up to the ship in Azran where thyrene is waiting; thyrene will record the first 10 races who arrives and they will win the prize.

The players arrived safely in the destination and the suprise event has ended. In the end most of the players enjoyed and appreciated it and they are requesting for it to be an official event,  An an event is not an event without your traditional picture taking so before we bid goodbye to each other we capture our kodak moments in this memorable event.

Till then ^^
