Cabal Domination – 11th Anniversary of Cabal Philippines – Part 1


Got the invitation from the management board of PlayPark by early of April. I was too much eager to visit Philippines again for attending the 11th anniversary of Cabal Philippines. All I can remember about Philippines that they had a huge, strong and united Cabal Community ever all over the world.

Buckle up and Fly

It wasn’t a pleasant flight for me this year, I had to flight from the place where I’m working, transited at Singapore for more than 3 hours then flew to Philippines. The whole journey took me more than 14 hours.

14 hours journey drained my energy…

Arrival

I arrived at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) at around 2PM (GMT +8) June 21st. As discussed with PlayPark management team, CM Summer would pick me up at the airport. I had no clue that how would she look like. Just went out of the immigration counter, picked my luggage and CM Summer was already there with Fenix.

Right after they picked me up, they brought me to the PlayPark head office. Here, I got chance to meet other influencers. We had a meeting together on the schedule of the event, all were excited to discuss on the topic.

With Cabal PH influencers

At the end of the day, together, we had a dinner, tried to discuss some more on the tasks during the event. Together, we wanted to try our best for the event, because we all know how was it important to us, to the Cabal Community!

Preparation!

Just like last year, I tried to be at the SM Skydome on the night before. At 00:00 AM of June 23rd, everything were still under construction state. At this corner, people were trying to prepare the guild booths; at another corner, others were hanging banners, fixing light system, sound system… All were in rush, but they did with all of their heart, carefully and enthusiastically, just because their heart beat with the same pulse, towards the event, towards the Cabal PH Community!

SM Skydome at 0:12 AM June 23rd

I tried to go back and forth, capture the different angles of the preparation, but tried not to disturb them; because we all knew that, it was too much late!

SM Skydome at 2:06 AM June 23rd

Beat the Heat!

At 8:00 AM, I got into the Dome, collected my wristband from organiser so I could get in and out of the Dome easier.

I knew that Cabalista were hyped, over-excited and ready at all time to get inside the Dome. Decided to check out for the queue, at 9:00 AM, under the 35*C heat of Quezon City, the queue was long long long… I decided to run along the queue til the end!

Queue was extremely long!

As per unofficial source, last year we had thousands of Cabalistas, no idea about this year; but I could tell you, it wouldn’t be lesser than last year!

The blog entry was written based on my subjective view as a Cabal player, as a Community Manager for my own blog and as an invited guest of the program. This is multi-post entry, it will be spanned into 3 posts:

Lots of photos were uploaded into this Album on my Facebook page. Check it out, and if you find yourself or your buddies, tag them all!

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.

Thank you, Angel (dandiely) for being a bridge linking me with this chance!

After all, thank you ESTSoft (now is ESTGames) for developing a wonder game, a wonder world that can connect us together.

Thank you,

Mr. Wormy / Trung Nguyen Tri

End!

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!
