Cabal Domination – 11th Anniversary of Cabal Philippines – Part 3


This is the 3nd post of the series: Cabal Domination – 11th Anniversary of Cabal Philippines. You can also refer to Part 1 and Part 2.

Domination!

The whole Skydome was DOMINATED by Cabalistas, who came from different places all over the Philippines, or even me – as a foreigner!

I found GM Kiel, sitting at a corner of the stage, scrolling up and down on his phone with the checklist and program flow, ensuring every single thing to be OK as expected.

I’m not sure if my interpretation is correct or not, but I think that the event is Domination is for lots of reasons, one among them is: Domination can be read as Do-mi-nation or Do-my-nation, meant Do it, my nation! Because they know them all that, here we are all together, the whole nation! And together we can overcome all obstacle, heading to the success!

My own thought…

Full of activities!

Lots of activities were held along the event, such as Cosplay contest, Alz-o-Kahon, Mr. & Ms. Nevareth… and more. Luckily, I had chance to participate in 2 events. I prepared 30 different questions for the Alz-o-Kahon game, as I remembered, last year players could pass the 6th question and 9th question for this year. Quite impressive!

Not like the Alz-o-Kahon, which I stayed behind the scene as the question composer; for Mr. & Ms. Nevareth, PlayPark team invited me to be one of 3 judges. I was too much proud and overexcited to be there as judges and even along with Mr. Apol.

Samuel Diana won the title of Mr. Nevareth with a wise answer that, if he won the title of Cabal ambassador, he would try his best to ensure that player would be much more happier with the game. Because he understood that, being an ambassador himself meant he would be the bridge, that connect the PlayPark management team with players!

Ella Park won the title of Ms. Nevareth with her extraordinary confidence and talent! She said, she was very happy as she won the title. As the ambassadress, she would try her best to promote

Mr. Wormy dominated the STAGE!

Once again, I got back to the stage, with the support from hosts, I had around 20 minutes on the stage with all Cabalistas! Sharing my own experience to be there in Philippines, experience regarding the community of Cabal PH, and giving out giveaway; all are now still here in my heart, in my mind.

Last words

I really do appreciate the love from Cabalistas here in Philippines, and also all over the world. We came from different places, with different origins, here we all pour our hearts into the Cabal, to prove that: Together, we can overcome all obstacle to reach the pinnacle! I just quote again my sentence last year:

Because, in our hearts, we have a place for CABAL, it can be small, it can be big. But it will be there, will be something that make us proudly to say: I love CABAL.

Mr. Wormy / 26th June 2018

Thank you, PlayPark team for inviting me again for attending the event. I hope that I would have chance again to attend the 12th, 13th and even 20th anniversary of Cabal PH!

Thank you, Mr. Apol, Mr. Ryan, Mr. Kim (GM. Kiel) and Princess (CM Summer) for spending your precious time for me, supporting me during my trip to Philippines.

Thank you, Angel (dandiely) for being a bridge linking me with this chance (not for the first time, she did the same last year!). Still I haven’t got chance to talk with you much!

Thank you ESTGames for developing a wonder game, a wonder world that can connect us together.

All over, thank you all Cabalistas, Cabalers, Nevarethians, or whatever it is, without you, players, we wouldn’t be able to make these things happen!

Thank you! Yes YOU, no one else, for reading this series, to join the ambiance, to get the feeling of being a Cabalista for celebrating 11th Anniversary of Cabal Philippines!

Cabal Domination – 11th Anniversary of Cabal Philippines – Part 2


This is the 2nd post of the series: Cabal Domination – 11th Anniversary of Cabal Philippines. You can also refer to Part 1 and Part 3.

Open!

At around 9:30 AM, the gate was opened, all Cabalistas rushed in the Dome, each player will get a Door Prize ticket which will be used later for raffle and also for redeeming gifts. All Cabalistas without any hustling, queuing up and getting into the Dome.

At the other corner, Cabalistas were trying to practice for the 5vs5 Carnage final match. I had chance to take picture of them while doing last-minute checkup, right before the incoming match.

Some final touches

Last but not least, PlayPark staff prepared the merchandise booth, with various of things, from extremely cute plush Cabal characters to pillows, lanyard, ballers, T-shirt and more! Had a small chat with Mr. Ryan, he said: “AC is now better right? We experienced the heat from last anniversary, so we already informed SM to arrange extra AC and fans for cooling down the Dome.” and then with a slightly smile, he helped his staff, carrying pillows crossing the Dome.

It was already 10:45 AM, I decided to leave the Dome, went out to check the queue. I found Mr. Apol, standing there observing the queue, with the teary eyes of happiness, because after 11 years, still he and his team were doing good!

Looking down, we saw the queue kept building up, thousands… I did some little chat with them, some came far far away from different island, some were just right from Quezon City or Manila, but all of them were now in the same place, the Nevareth Continent, heading towards the Cabal Domination event…

As mentioned previously, PlayPark gave Door Prize for all of Cabalistas who attended the event, at around 10:50 AM, the Registration Booths were still filled up with lots of people. Crossing by the Registration area, I found Infinity and Dandiely and also CM Summer. All were very much busy for some last final touches, right before the opening at 11:00 AM.

11:00 AM, the event was official started! After the short warming-up welcome from hosts, Mr. Apol took the stage and delivered the opening speech.

Continuing from: Review for Revolut10n: 10th anniversary of CABAL Philippines [Part 3/4]

The blog entry is arranged into 4 parts:

06:10PM: Alz-o-Kahon

The game is like a tournament, you have 3 options A-L-Z, each is attached with an answer, for each question you have to pick A-or-L-or-Z. Winner will stay on the stage, loser will be wrap to Bloody Ice 😉

Right after 4 questions (if I remembered correctly), we found the winner. The task of winner is pick one of these three (03) boxes and do a mind-war with staff if he wants the content inside the box or Alz that staff bid.

Game ended up with the unexpected result, the winner won an UCH [Upgrade Core (High)]

6:50PM: *cry cry* 😦

“Have to leave little bit earlier, although I really really don’t want to do 😭😭😭. Want to put myself in this mood, this ambience, this atmosphere of#CabalOnline of #CabalPH 😍😍😍

Mabuhay #Philippines! Mahal ko kayo! 🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭

See you again!”

I posted my excuse on my page and said “bye-bye” with some special friends and left the room, with teary eyes…

I really, really appreciate the love you all have for CABAL Online, people who play in COPH, people who play in other services. Together, we can create a special community over country borders, over all kind of obstacle. Because, in our hearts, we have a place for CABAL, it can be small, it can be big. But it will be there, will be something that make us proudly to say: I love CABAL.

For me, this is a special oppotunity that I can show up, meet CABAL Online fans, to hear their voices, their dreams and their love!

Thank you, CABAL players all over the world who spend lots of love for me, and especially PH players here for giving me chance to meet, talk and share stuff with you.

Thank you, Asiasoft – PlayPark for inviting me to this event and believing in a person that you never ever seen before (and even don’t know if he exists or not!).

Thank you, Kim (GM Kiel – I believed that it’s correct) for spending your precious time for me and convince the management team so I could get this chance.

Thank you, Flan (CM Winter) for uiding me some tips with Tagalog.

04:15PM: Stage moment

In real life, for me talking with 1000 people or more won’t be a problem. But here, Mr. Wormy who is a Fiction Figure?! How can a Fiction Figure talk with thousands of people?

I discussed with CM Winter and PlayPark team to arrange and assist me, so I could have a short precious moment with fans. There was nothing special for my showing up, most of people knew that I would be there. I answered some questions mostly is to evaluate the strength of Cabal PH community. And then I decided to distribute the rest amount of gifts that I prepared. Out of these gift, I prepared a special gift which was an adventurer hat with some hand writing and signature 😉 All players got hyped up for the hat and the venue was like a club with lots of screaming and fighting :p (I really don’t know who got it yet!).

04:40PM: Cosplayer Contest

One by one, 4 Cosplayers got on the stage for competition, they showed their craftsmanship for making costumes of CABAL.

  • First one was Force Archer with:
    • Gorgeous Servant Costume
    • Light Saber Astral Bow
  • Second one was Blader with
    • Mithril Martialset (or Forcium in Cabal NA)
    • Mithril Weapon (I’m not sure if these weapons are Blade or Katana)
  • Third one was Force Archer
    •  Archridium Battleset (? I’m really not sure, it look like the Force Archer from update Rising Force, but I cannot recall which set was that)
    • Archridium Astral Bow
  • Forth one was Force Blader
    • Archridium Battle Set
    • Archridium Blade
    • Archridium Crystal

06:00PM: Celebrity…

Lots of preparation were made for the next game Alz-o-Kahon, in the mean time, I roamed around the room and got caught again @_@ And guild Triballion gifted me a full giftset and a special T-Shirt with my name!

10AM 24th June 2018: Was SHOCKED!

There are some players who got chance to be inside the venue already. I didn’t reveal my identity yet, there is no reason for bragging that who am I. Because I did these things were not for me. I tried to blend myself into the sea of people in the Skydome… But I’ve heard a lousy scream from the back side, some girl screamed out loud my name “Are you Mr. Wormy?!!!!”. (I was like, “Oh shit got detected!” may be I should put on some disguise like mask or wig next time). She asked for taking photo with me and right after that she called her friends. After the photo shot she still felt abnormal, so I offered a hug for calming down 😉

I decided to get back with my work, capturing the ambiance of the event; people were lining up like thousands outside, although things got warmer and warmer.

The background music was turned on, the rhythm of BGM for dungeon “Forbidden Island” and then “Mission War” kept looping for pumping up the spirits.

First batch of players got inside Skydome, and without any hesitations, they came to where I was being stood and recorded and asked me: “Are you Mr. Wormy?! Can I, can we take a picture with you?!” And then after that all of his guild buddies came and took pictures with me. Two boys from the group also asked me for the gift of the mini event that I made before and they got it (check here for the event information).

Got shocked! Truly shocked! I feel overwhelmed! I decided to leave the venue and get back with the line of players outside. In my mind, I thought it should be cooled down now, because it is 10:40am already…

10:50AM: Yuan!

Planning to leave the room, I found Yuan, we took some pictures with each other and I decided to leave her there for others :p (I meant others to take picture with her)

10:55AM: Back with the line? Will it be there?

I decided to post the first post ever on my page with my face *_* And then going down with the line, I kept wondering if the line was there or not…

I got caught by a fan right at the end of the escalator, took a picture with him and checked the line, OMG it didn’t reduce any feet for the length! I ran along the line and took pictures at some spots (at that time, I doubted that they knew my identity or not, they might thought that must be person from media…)

11AM: It started!

Actually, I didn’t know exactly when it started, but at around 11AM+, I entered the room and heard lots of screaming, cheering for “City Tour” (I have no idea so forgive me, if I note it wrong.) After that Mr. Apol approached the stage for some kicking-off and warming up activities. The ambiance was warmed up second by second!!!

12:10PM NPC Invasion!

Out of no where, Rin, Elena, Arionell and Aizhan invaded the room. Lots of players screaming and asking for taking selfie with these NPCs 🙂 From zero-to-hero, I got dragged into the celebrity club to take pictures with them *_* PlayPark team even prepared for me some props for taking pictures 😉 (thanks CM Winter for these :p )

02:15PM: Impossible things happen!

I didn’t forgot the lines outside, I left the room. Mr. Apol caught me outside and we had a great discussion, he even invited me for the incoming event this August and also for Year-end event (not sure, but I will try my best!).

Let’s get back with the line, so how do you guess about the “status” of the line at 2:15PM? Let’s check the photo by yourself. One was for the line outside with hundreds, sorry thousands of players still lined up (under the extreme heat of Philippines – I would say that I could be fainted under that 34*C heat!). And one was the room atmosphere (from the view of the stage). Yes, thousands of players, everywhere, inside and outside!!!

In my mind, a question was popped up: “Why do they love the game too much like that?” and that question was followed by another one “How can the publisher – Asiasoft / PlayPark – can do it?!!!

02:45PM: Guild Banner Contest

Music is lowered, some staff shown up and called representative of Guilds to the stage, they did some explanation for their Guild Banner.

While walking in the room for capturing photos and videos (I will also prepare a clip for this event, Subscribe to my Youtube to ensure that you won’t miss it 🙂 ) got requests to take selfie with lots of fans. Really, feel proud!
