Applying Principles and Virtues on Guild Management

I wrote an article "On Guild Management" which I highly recommend to all aspiring Guild Leaders (GL) and those who already are. The first few minutes after I posted it, I've been receiving good feedbacks via YM, mobile, and even landline calls! But the best way to prove that is for you to read it.

To quote one, a GM of Mobius Online Games (mobius.ph): (translated to English) "It is a good read for guild management because it does not have the complexities of the other guild guides, additionally, it is easy to remember and principles kicks-a**."

Audition Philippines 1st Competition

On the 19th of November, 2006, 5 in the afternoon of Sunday, Audition Philippines (AuditionPH) held its first AuditionPH Contest. It was held on the last day of the Hataw! Hanep! HERO! Anime Convention where the game's Philippine publisher is the top sponsor/partner.

There were thirty players who signed up, enough to create five groups for the elimination round (six players each group). The elimination round setup was Normal Individual mode with a Random (Easy) song setting.

The winners for the quick elimination (in the alphabetical order): ayachii, DDRmaniac, Naksyo, orlanix, and Seraphim (yours truly). Then the finals...

The final round was setup in the Choreography mode with the song setting of Random All. Winners are taken if they acquire two wins. After that, all "win" scores are reset and the second winner is again taken with two wins, until there are a total of three winners.

The first winner is ayachii, winning two consecutive wins. It was a tough game as we both beat each other up from the number one spot (in-game), and with the contestants already "stiffy" because of cold hands, not that its so cold in the event area, but the battle is heating that our blood started to cool down, wait that's contradictory, anyway, you get the picture.

The second winner is Seraphim, or me ;) and the third winner is orlanix.

Congratulations to ayachii and orlanix and the rest of the brave AuditionPH contestants, we made one heck of a show that put Audition Philippines quickly to the top.

See you all in-game !!


You can watch the match videos I was able to send to my email, as well as see some pictures my supportive and sweet honey Sherlene took.



(I will be posting the videos tomorrow.)

How to Battle the NPCs?

Here are some of the tricks players have confirmed when having a Battle with the NPCs.

1) Continous misses or if there are two or more players who miss at the same time, the NPC starts to do Perfect Chains, which is deadly to most.

2) The use of "Chance" must yield Perfect combos for it to be effective. Non-perfect Chances are useless.

3) The DJ must not use "Chance" or the NPC will also use "Chance" with a higher percentag of getting Perfect Chains as well.



If you win, the your total score is the Den reward you will get. Competiting with the NPC is very fun and challenging. For one, it requires lots of Perfect Chain combos, and two, it requires a good group of players.

So go login and defeat those NPCs!!

PS. This is the best way to acquire thousands of Dens - if you win that is.

My first Perfect x9 Combo

I am very happy today that I got my first Perfect x9 Combo. Now my next objective is to go x10 or more. Slowly practicing my Perfects, 8k (ie 8keys), and Chance mode.

I also made a lot of Den today because of consecutive Perfects and wins with the NPC Challenge. Now I don't want to leave AuditionSEA but sadly the time is nearing for me to move to AuditionPH.

Anyway, here's the screenshot.

(Note: I posted 2 screenshots, 1 from C|Net's WebShots and the other one from Yahoo!'s Flickr. I am testing out which is better in terms of picture uploading and user interface.)

Launching Dancing to Audition Blog

I am launching this new blog entitled "Dancing to Audition", dedicated to the casual game that is taking away my time from playing World of Warcraft and Guild Wars - yes you read that right.

This blog will concentrate mainly on things related to Audition and 'dancing related to Audition', as well as music! Of course, music is an integral part of this game and of dancing.

So I hope you'll enjoy this blog as much as you enjoy playing Audition Online Dance Battle.

---
Why did I chose blogger.com when I can host my own blog? Well, to test out the new Blogger Beta. And by that, there will be changes from this blog's code as I learn more of the new Blogger template (which is in XML). So far, this is the first skin I converted from the old Blogger template to the new blogger template - not yet complete but it is functional.

And this blog will stay here - even after testing is done with Blogger Beta, so don't fret, I'm not going to move this blog :D
