Reflecting about “a blind person”

Have you ever experience being nervous at a time of your life. Do you remember your very first job interview or school interview with your headmaster? Those times that your body shivers, hands trembling and blurry visions. I bet you did because I know they did!

After a week of intensive filtering of the applicants we decided to meet those who applied in-game. Most of the applicant we meet feels nervous at first which is quite inevitable especially if you are applying for a job.

A common conversation during the interview….

So when an applicant faces the interviewers namely (tabbed) “Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and even Ryan Seacrest ( Me of course , CM Mickey, GM Stark, CM Taiga with special appearance of GM Helius, Scary and Evil Ghost ) they can’t help themselves but to sing at the same time.

Association of Interrogators.

We asked the applicants questions ranging from their personal life, Situational, 10 seconds drill as well as some top and difficult beauty pageant our personal favorite…

“How can you describe WYD to a blind person since birth”?

Let me share you some memorable lines from the scout applicants during that “stage”…

To see is to believe…

Now that the interview phase has already ended. All i can say is that you guys did well and good luck to your application. So the next step will be the “Examination” so do your best!

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 “Cat Fights”

Hello Guys and Dolls looks who’s back on track. First of all I would like to apologize for the lack of blog updates in the past few weeks for the reason that I’ve been busy on informing online communities about the latest updates and development of you know what.

Talking about “Guys and Dolls”.

Many of the WYDian’s are wondering why i greeted them with “Hello Guys and Dolls” and not just the Usual Hello or Hi? Well its kind of boring if i just say the usual so i have to think of a different way.

Anyway just to clarify something for those poor souls who who misunderstood the text that i encode. I do refer girls as dolls in my greeting context but it doesn’t mean that i treat them like one.

My greeting came from a musical as well as a movie.

Talking about other Community Manager’s.

Officially i am the only Community Manager that you can find in game. I know that we used to have 4 CM’s who handles the community. So where are the other CM’s? The answer will be Its either they resigned or got transffered to “Another Job that is much SUITABLE for them.”

Since the Halloween is a few sleeps to go our team decided to release a new costume to be added to your dress up collection. For screen shot and PR purposes I asked my team for those costumes  so if ever you want to have the form  of the macho cat man or do you miss my first form the “big bad cat” ( Also the form of GM Fury and Hyperion) .  Then this costume is a must-have!

Making Fun of it!

A while ago I’ve lend my other costume a “Kalintz Cat Woman Costume” which I cannot wear obviously to GM Freya for the sake of taking screen shot

When Freya finally wears the costume the playful me strikes back and attacked her to show a literal “CAT FIGHT”.  And here’s what I got!

Freya’s creative juices is overflowing making her role play a role of a Cat Wife beating his Cat Husband for coming home late!

Don’t “Meow Meow” to me! We really portrayed a literal cat fight aren’t we?

pr0n Power Works?…

I am really a fun of guild wars myself and i never fail to watch exciting fights between guilds and what amuses me today is the fight between AUTHORITY and EXTERMINO..

Let this random quotes from players explain to you why i got amused.

Talking about putting spice to a sleeping competitiveness of guilds?

That’s all for now and make sure that you check my post below about the upcoming “Whats hot and Whats Not?” this season.

Shout Event.

This ultra cool event will unfortunately end in tuesday but! If you want this event to get extended the Vote for it now! The outcome will depend your vote so call your friends and vote!

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

Image from Alia

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 ^^

Reflecting about the “hide and seek twist”

We have already heard the singing Tax Collectors..

The most popular B.F.F in the WYD world …

and gossiping NPC’s

But what i did a while ago amused me so much and i cant recover about it and probably calls for a sequel . Anyway i performed my daily job of conducting my precious event the “where am i” also known as the hide and seek.

Instead of doing the usal 3 listed things  above i realized that i created a whole story divided into three parts and every part means a new hideout so for those who miss the story of Kephra about the Lonely King! let me share it with you…

Kephra: Want to hear a very lonely story WYDIANS?

Kephra: This story is about a lonely king…

Once upon a time there was a lonely king
Living in the DARKest place of his lonely kingdom
Together with his lonely GOLDEN royal lonely servants
Sitting on his SKELETON THRONE all day makes him feel EMO.
But everytime he saw his 2 SKELETON PETS..
A smile will mark on his face.
i hope that our lonely king will be happy someday

Can someone find him and makes him happy?

The lonely king made a very terrible mistake!
His standing on the SHIPS deck and he jumped over the cold WATER
He probably wants to end his life by DROWNING himself..
into a RIVER full of AQUATIC animals.
Its not to late to save him


Please save the lonely king!

The lonely king realized that there is no point for being lonely
And he decided to view things differently
To be able to divert his attention from loneliness
He started a new hobby. A hobby that makes him happy
At the same time it brings life to the wonderful world
So he decided to go to AZRAN and find the person who will help him
the GODS GARDENER!
You heard it right guys and dolls. The king started a GARDENING hobby
and implemented a Khersup Reforestation program…
And they plant happily ever after!

The End….

Some said that the story is so emo while some said its just a waste of time but i said i enjoyed it rather than the  usual First Clue… Second Clue  bore  i mean sequence of giving clues.

Talk about giving a twist on simple events such as this…

In my opinion the Lonely King Deserves a sequel and who will be watching about his life story? You!
