e-Games Evolution in SM Clark Pampanga

Sunday, December 9, 2007 by Bea

Crossposted to: Love Chronicle: Reality in GE's New World
December 7
It was a very hectic day, as I made last check on the items we need to bring in Pampanga; merchandise, the GE boxes, prizes, etc.
We brought two vans since we were: Grandia and Starex.

We got at SM Clark around 10PM, had dinner, and went to Ingress, finished around 2-3AM.

December 8
We had small preparations like the registration booth and tarps, plus checking the computers and Internet.

The registration opened around pass 11AM, and players started to fill in the e-Games pad, and most of them attacked our booth because of the offline passport quest: creating your own emblem. Globe was happy with our challenge, that they contributed & added up more of their merchandise to us for prize purposes (like creating a Globe-inspired emblem/logo). It was really fun. ^^

And then of course, there's freeplay. We gave stubs which serves as their 1-hour freeplay and an entry for our raffle.

For sale: GE Limited Edition box, GE tumbler, and GE pens (we ran out of jackets and shirts).

My trusted Game Assistants and model helped me out during the mini-activities that we conducted in our GE booth.

I also did a presentation on the updates for Granado Espada in behalf of my boss. We had mini-games like trivia after the said presentation. We were also generous and had raffle draw on GE premium merchandise and lots of Divine Angel Wings.
My friend, and a GE player that was featured on my girl gamer article, eLfshimmeR, was also there:

Many thanks again for the faction, FallenAngels, for being present from time-to-time in our events!

I got scared on the big Santa Claus. @_@

e-Games Boys at rest~

We were so tired, but happy on the outcome of the event.

December 9
We're heading home! Buying lots of pasalubong as well. Ate in McDo at our stopover in NLEX.Hope to see everyone at the next event, which is the Intel Machinimasia. ^_~

Aftermath: GE at the Hataw Hanep Hero 3 Convention!

Wednesday, December 5, 2007 by Bea

Crossposted to: Love Chronicle: Reality in GE's New World
One word: cold. @_@

November 30, 2007
I was already at the SMX Convention Center around 8AM for Ingress, but since almost everyone was busy at the Function Room 1 for the Ran GC, I also helped a bit on their preparations, and had to go out around noon to get lunch and buy more stuff for the GE booth.

We did small setups, from the computers and to the booth itself, double-check wirings, etc.

December 1, 2007
Day 1 - H3
Yes! Was there early to setup everything: registration forms, computers, prizes, freebies, etc. It was pretty hectic, since I already saw around 200 people waiting outside the entrance earlier than me. @_@

GE goodies, thanks to IAH. XD~

The booth and the people who supported it. ^_^

There were lots of people who bought the GE Limited Edition Boxes, and asked about the F2P announcement, the conversion of the game time to GPoints, the activities, and the new patch coming this December 20. Needless to say, I talked about it nonstop all day, and made my throat hoarse. @_@
Most players who attended were from Carracci, Pachelbel and Vivaldi, namely Brotherhood, Argonauts, PinoyAllStars, FallenAngels, Ad-Infinitum, and other well-known Pinoy factions.

December 2, 2007
Day 2 - H3
Cosplay galore and more!

Joy (Brunie), me (ETS), DeSanggria (Idge), Caress (Elementalist), Ivee (Scout)

We had major raffles, bring me, and other mini-events that day, and most of the crowd were enjoying it (especially the Do-the-Pose part). ^^
Congrats to the winners of the videocard and the GE Limited Edition Box set that we gave away during the raffle draw.

More pictures and videos soon!
Don't forget to check out your fellow bloggers' entries during the H3Con. ^.^

6th Faction Visitation: BROTHERHOOD

by Bea

Blood is thicker than water.

When was the faction created?
BH was created on the 17th of September.

How did you guys come up with a name?
It was the name of our guild in the last MMORPG we played.

Pioneer players behind creating this faction?
Lucius, Goldeye, Makisig, Uzuki, HeartzAngelz, Victorias are the 1st few members of BH in GE.

How many members? How many are active until now?
We have about 80 members currently and around 40+ active usually.

What's the current level of your faction?
We are a level 52 faction.

How many hours do you guys go on grind leveling / AFK?
Maybe around 8 to 10 hrs a day average grinding mode of members. Most of the time when they are online they are doing boss raids :)

What are you guys into in GE lately?
Boss raids, Colony Wars and PVP :)
(Veya: And Hide & Seek, or hunt me in-game @_@)

Do you often organize eyeballs and gatherings? What are your agenda/activities?
We do sometimes, usually when there is a GE event.

Do you have a message to send out to your fellow servermates?
Level hard, raid hard, ignore whiners! :)

The Family of Lucius

The members are quite very active in-game, has lots of stories to tell, whether it be GE-related, or their love and life problems, experiences, etc. They are also very accommodating, friendly, hyper, and loves in-real-life and in-game events.
I had a blast with these guys. They were active both during the Launch Party (the BH name wasn't even created yet) and Oktoberfest. Makwela sila at sobrang active sa mga events. They're probably hot in their server right now with all of those issues, but hey, I still had fun hanging out with them. Goodluck to all of your endeavors! ^_~

Thanks to Bossing Lucius and Lightbreeze for the info and images.
