One of the best way to test your ability and knowledge in-game is by joining Players VS Players is PVP. Sadly, the PVP BET assistance was closed due to the risk of getting scammed or being cheated. But because of the complaints of players who loves this service wanting it back and since issues on third party programs and other cheats has been "slightly" resolved, a decision was made and on the 2nd of January 2015. Our very own Head Game Master Hestia announced the official re-opening of PVP BET.
The safest way to have a great and clean duel with bet is to have an assistance from trusted people which is no other than our game masters. PVP BET has been reopened for the sake of loyal and new players who wanted to experience such. The revised rules can also help reduce the numbers of players who are getting scammed by their opponents. It can also help distinguish swindlers who ruin the world of dueling.
This is just really great news for PVP Lovers as they can now feel safe and have peace of mind during their battle. What do you think is the reason why this very wonderful service was closed before? Well the reason is because of the loads of reports the community has received. There were lots of bet runners and scammers that time. Because of these issues, PVP Bet was closed. Although there were too many complaints that time, several players still do not agree on closing PVP bet and the reactions on their faces cannot be painted. Now, since PVP Bet was officially re-opened, let's make the most out of it and just assume that at the meantime bet runners and scammers have learned their lessons. Thanks to HGM Hestia for this cool new year's gift. Cheers!
This month of January, our game master team came up with great events.
GrudgeMU Gang Wars is an event for guilds to show how mighty, how strong and how ferocious they are.. This is also a test of teamwork, social skills, man power, unity and prowess. This is somewhat similar to the Guild Wars which was hosted live last grand tournament. During the war, I remember "we" grouped ourselves into 5 ad we're only allowed to use NPC sets and weapons. The event requirements are: Only NPC sets should be worn, NPC Sets can be upgraded to +9, NPC Sets can have yellow options, weapons of their choice: [+15+FO+...]Accessories of their choice [+15+FO+...]. It has 3 stages (elimination, semi-finals, and finals). Prize for this event is 20 cash points for each member. Registration is still open for interested players.
The Grudgemazing Race is an event derived from the famous "Amazing Race" hosted by GM Desiderata where participants will work hard to accomplish all the tasks given by the game masters. Luckily, Hossy nailed it! He was given 30 cash points as reward. Congratulations!
Slamming Down the Hooves is an event just like sumo wrestling. But in this case, only STOMP skill of dark lords will be used. Both players will try to "stomp-out" the opposing parties. The player that remains in the circle is the winner. Prize for this event is 20 cash points. Congratulations to AzurA9 for winning this event!
GrudgeMU Vote Marathon is an event for our voters. Players will submit 1 newly made account with 0 [zero] votes / resets on it. Only 1 character is allowed inside this account. If the player wins and is later found out that there are other characters in the account, the prize will be forfeited. Open to all players with 2 requirements: [must have 1 Full stat character and with minimum of 1000 cp on his account] Player must also provide SS of character showing maxed stats. He must also provide SS of current number of credit points.
Super Potter is a PK event open for everyone. This event will determine GrudgeMU's best and fastest potion user. In order to win this event, players will have to keep on attacking a participant and if he survives in the given time while being attacked, he wins, and if not the players who are attacking will get the prize. Prize for this event is 30 cash points.-=dangerous=- won this event. Congratulations!
Find the Princess is an event wherein there will be 2 GM's included, one as the Prince and one as the Princess.You have to find the Princess in a certain map and party her. If you are on party with her you will be branded as the "knight" and the Princess will follow you anywhere. The rest of the aspirants who are aiming for the princess could kill the player who is already in a party with the princess. The princess will leave the party and will accept party invites of another player if the "knight" dies. Hossy won the event and was given 20 cash points plus marriage to the host for one month. Congratulations! More events to come! :)
I can say that Castle Siege event nowadays has improved a lot unlike before when we hear a lot of complaints regarding cheats and third party programs and non-stop reports everywhere. Thanks to our GM observers who records and watches the event. Indeed having these observers will give players peace of mind.
The famous grand castle siege which was supposed to be hosted last December was moved to January. It's a battle of guilds where the winners will bear the title Grand Castle Lords and win cash points. From January 17, it was again moved to January 24, 2015. The castle holder at that time was XTREMES guild but was not able to maintain its stand. The crown was then seized by NATION guild and that's how it ended. The prize of 1000 cash points was divided equally among those members who attended CS. This is a once in a lifetime event really for it only happens once a year.
Looking back before the Grand Castle Siege, the first week's winner of January CS is no other than NATION which was followed by KAWATAN, then XTREMES, and the GCS week which was won by NATION. They were able to defend the crown until present. For pictures, just visit the screenshots thread/section and you'll see the winners' characters in-game selfies.
Congratulations to all the winners and to NATION for winning Grand Castle Siege Event! Cheers!
We have finally added another Lead Moderator on forums to take TheReality's spot. This guy has been the Ace Moderator and is a Game Master. You must be wondering how he managed to do both jobs (not to mention his real-life work), let's get to know him more with our little chit-chat:
Quibbler Z: Personal questions first (I hope you don't mind ^^). What do usually do when you're online? Do you still go to school? What are you taking up?
LMod Desi: My GMU life is 90% forum 10% ingame ^^ so I'm just in forum most of the time. Nah, I stopped going to school since 2002 :( I'm an undergraduate of BSBA-Major in Management.
Quibbler Z: How old are you now and what was your age when you started playing GMU?
LMod Desi: Next question please nyahahahahaha, seriously I'm 35 years old now but still 16 at heart^^ I can't remember how old I am when I started playing GMU, all I remember is Diurnal is the Admin when I started playing GMU.
Quibber Z: Being the new Lead Moderator requires more time, how do you manage your time on forums?
LMod Desi: I just keep on doing what I need to do. I have work from 9am - 6pm, so I can only online at night around 7pm. I can do lmod job maybe 3-4 hours,sometimes if not dead tired from work, I can also do ingame event (GM).
Quibbler Z: What motivated you to work hard and put a lot of effort on Mod Team?
LMod Desi: Before we really lack in manpower, we only have 2 mod and 1 FR sometimes no FR at all. but now, I'm lucky to have 3 active mods, and as what I've told them, "We should work as a team, I don't want a team that works individually".
Quibbler Z: Any message to the GMU community?
LMod Desi: To my co-staff/co-players, just keep on playing and supporting our beloved server GMU. I'm encouraging those players who want to help our server, not just only for the "benefit of being a staff" but to really help improve our server.
I also want to share some of the lines from Desiderata(desired things) by Max Ehrmann..
"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember
what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time."
One of the friendliest players I've known in-game is now under this guild, STRBOYS. They're everywhere and I mean everywhere. We've conducted a short get-to-know-you interview with their Guild Master and here's what he has to share:
Quibber Z: Good evening, can you tell us your in-game name and what character you are using?
GodSpeed: "GodSpeed" is my character name, i use Blade master in game.
Quibber Z: What made you choose this character class?
GodSpeed: I chose this character class coz its awesome and it gives me challenge in every duel i encounter.
Quibber Z: In what aspect do think made you unique among other players?
GodSpeed: I'm a friendly player, my friends and guild members are my greatest treasure in the game.
Quibber Z: What do you always do when youre online? How do you manage your time?
GodSpeed: when i'm not online, i design a few things, after that i play GMU at night to relax.
Quibber Z: Tips on how to be a top player:
GodSpeed: If you want to be one of the strongest player always challenge yourself and learn to accept your mistakes.
Last 11th, 21st and 28th of January 2015 at the GrudgeMU Community Forum there were updates that were really sad and some that were extremely marvelous for the community.
It started off with a sad update where former forum responder Yasma resigned from the Moderator team due to a family issues that occured unexpectedly which requires his full attention. He also resigned from the Quibbler team but then after a while, he returned to continue what he has started. Another sad update for the team was announced. It was regarding the removal of jomarcalicdan due to lack of activity which is one of the requirements and priorities of Moderator Team. He was just recently added as a Forum Responder but since his promotion he was not able to do the assigned tasks therefore as a consequence he was removed.
All of a sudden big updates regarding the Moderator Team status were announced by Forum Director TheReality last January 21st of 2014. These updates were great as this added up new and great deeds not just for the team but also for the community and members who are still supporting it. It was regarding the promotion of Desiderata, Maica and Katalyst who were working really hard.
Desiderata, was promoted as the new Lead Moderator due to his outstanding performances as a moderator. He worked hard enough to receive this promotion under his name. He is currently a Game Master as well which seems to be working really good for him. He is such a role model for the community who manages to handle a senior position and do game master job inspite of his busy work schedule.
There was also another great update which regards to Maica and Katalyst who was just added a month ago in the team. They received promotion as full moderators. They will now have to work real hard as everyone knows that being a moderator you've got loads of responsibilities on your shoulders.
There were good and sad updates but the community should always be ready to accept them. Forum jobs such as being a moderator is not as easy as answering questions, assisting players and cleaning threads. These guys promote discipline as well which is pretty hard. For the ones who parted with the staff team, let us thank them for the services and time that they have rendered to the community. Best of luck guys!
On The 5th, 7th and the 21st of January 2015 at GrudgeMU Community, great updates and sad updates were announced and started by our handsome Community Manager Slay3r who seems to be perfectly handling the community and our staff crew.
It hasn't been long since the community have had a wonderful update where none of the members resigned but instead loads of the community members were actually assigned to take on the job but as usual there will always be that "time" where the hard working members of them team had no choice but to leave for good. However, when there is bad news there will always be good news that follows which will basically lead the community to be served by some deserving staffs who are really willing to give assistance.
What those updates point our is that there were some big bros who resigned and got removed. Jizelle who was once handling 3 positions has decided to resigned from The big Brother Team and Quibbler Team. He was indeed a great staff as he managed to achieved 4 positions at the same time but it looks like he could no longer be part of the team and needed to let go of the other teams to focus on his job. He's been part of the team staff for atleast 3 months and achieving 4 positions on a short time is really good.
HiProfile was a member who were recruited bu Slay3r to take on with the Big Bro task but since in a short period of time serving as a big bro he decided to leave the team and pursue another career. although it was a short time of serving it will always be big for the community.
There was x4KINGDOMx who got removed due to his undesirable character. He must reflect on what he's done wrong. Until then he's still not deserving to be part of the team. This shallow knowledge is way too far for him to be a legend but the decision was made therefore his legend tag remains.
On the other hand there was shabupa69 was assigned for the task of big bro. Hopefully his promotion will be the one to cover up those people who leave and hopefully that he will do great for his tasks.
On behalf of the GrudgeMU Community staff team and players they were thanked and wished a goodluck on their real life and as for our new Big Brothers, congratulations as well and goodluck on your job!
Captured Memories Last a Lifetime
I'm now signing off....
I will miss you all.
The GMU world was shattered as we read the thread posted by the game's one and only SIOPAO (steamed meat bun) vendor. We often see her "noobie" looking Summoner roaming around server 3. She takes pictures of people she knows and hates. "You're not famous if you haven't had a snapshot with Ms. SIOPAO", says the people who have known this bubbly little pal.
She's the face of the PK server. She was there whenever a "Big Event" is on. Snapping pictures of important personalities, flashing happy smiles to acquaintances, taking pictures of rare and happy events. She was there when guilds battle against other guilds. She was there when great allies unite. She was there to cheer someone up with a smile on an impromptu photo shoot as if she's your number 1 fan. She was there even if you didn't see her around.
We may have lost one of the best in-game photographer our server ever had, but into our hearts (and on our FB walls) she will remain. Thank you for the captured memories, thank you for the best times, MS. SIOPAO.
"Items please!" newbie players in-game usually say this to my face. Instead of avoiding them, I just share to them the events that we have. Well I believe not only me, but everyone should encourage them to join forum events. We have moderator events such as Halloween Costume2k14 and Where is Freddy???? GFX events such as Ghost on Photo, Halloween Signature, and Zombie Face. These events are easy because they do not require FO gears which makes them very suitable for newbies. The prizes will be good enough for starters. Well if you will notice, most of the events I've mentioned are related to Halloween. It's almost November that's why. Our beloved Game masters have also prepared in-game events such as Swimming Marathon Event, Spiders Run, So Fast! So Good!, Devias Throne Owner, and the famous Last Man Standing Event. Only 3 of these events are open for registration. They are as follows: Devias Throne Owner is a PK Event and will be hosted in Server 12. This is a RIOT Team Battle composed of 3 members per team and it is mixed Class of Choice. Each team will have to provide a team name that will be posted in their STORES when the event starts. This is a Battle Royale to know who will acquire the Throne of Devias Castle. The prize for this event is 9,000 Credit Points + 900 VIP Points (3,000 Credit Points+300 VIP Points each party member). So Fast So Good is a Non-PK Event and will be hosted in Server 1 composed of 2 daily events before the Main Custom Event. Everyone may join the Custom Event and the GM Host will be pick 8 players from the winners of minor events. Prize for this event is 3,000 Credit Points + 300 VIP Points. For the Last Man Standing event, here are the mechanics as enumerated by our HGM Cyde:
*Event compose of 10 Rounds
*Every winner of each round gets score
*Every loser of each round gets score
*All Scores from Round 1 to 10 are going to merged, win or lose.
*These points will be posted to Hall of Fame LMST Thread.
*Highest Points of the whole month will receive champion prize.
From 100 cash points, the prize for this event was reduced to 50 cash points. For the past 2 months, our last man standing winner is no other than xJHoNGx. Congratulations!

Long time ago, when I was new, here in the world of GrudgeMU, I aspired to travel the entire land. I seek for adventure and fun, and wanted to wander around. But the desire to explore for such came out to be a haunting journey.
It all started during a cold midnight. I can’t sleep and decided to prepare and start my expedition early, so I can witness the dawn and the rising sun. And be able to appreciate the beauty and wonders of the land. I traveled starting from Lorencia, where I met many people selling stuffs. I had fun and made some friends.
It took me a quite some time to stroll around the place. Until mid noon came and I decided to continue and transfer to another place, so by the end of the day I can visit few more places.
So, I went to Noria, and saw the beauty of nature. I was pleased with what I saw.
Green is very pleasing to the eyes of a tired traveler like me. And because of the pleasing atmosphere,I made up my mind to take some rest. Unknowingly, it was already Evening. I slept too much and didn’t noticed that I wasted so much time in putting my feet up.
I got up, and wanted to travel one last place, before I end the expedition for that day.
My next stop was supposed to be Atlans, I wanted to go there and witness uncommon sea creatures. But to my surprise, I landed in an unknown place. I was warped in a place accidentally, and upon viewing the map I cannot locate the exact area I am in.
Due to my curiosity, I continued to discover the place, and at the same time,
I wanted to meet other people who can tell me my way back home.
Upon roving around, I noticed the place was eerie. Then I realized the place I’m in, was like a grave yard. And I haven’t seen any living person roaming around not even one. There was a disturbing sound whispering in my ear that I can't get rid of.
Green fog wrapped the entire place, I can hardly see my way.
Then I stepped on something with a cracking sound, so I took a closer look, and found out I stepped on a human bone. I freaked out. My knees where shaking, and I wanted to scream but I can’t. All I can do was to run. I wanted to get out of the place. While i was running, I felt like someone is following me. So I ran faster, not knowing exactly where to go, and what to do, and who is following me.
Then someone was calling my name. "Eugeni0"... "Eugeni0"....The voice becomes louder and louder, and suddenly I woke up. I realized that it was just a dream, and I’ was still stocked at Noria. The Elf Soldier who woke me up, and questioned why I was panting and sweating while I was asleep. I told her everything.
To my surprise it wasn’t a dream after all. People can enter to that place while asleep, and must wake up to get back, or else, the soul of travelers will remain in that spine-cracking place, which they call Swamp of Calmness.
What happen to me in that untold place, didn't stop me from traveling. But I learned my lesson. To be brave and not to give up any of your aspiration. As long as you have faith, in times of trouble, someone will be there to help and save you.

L3MONAD3 : Good day Mr. lmbaIance! Can you tell us your ingame name and what character you are using?
Imbalance : Hi Grudgers, My name is Jon aka Imbalance (RF), lmbaIance (BM) it's easy to impersonate please don’t do that. I'm friendly, loyal and gentleman. I've been a player since Season 3 in GrudgeMU using a blade knight character namely penalosa (BM), and ,Trice01 (SM) TrueArch (BM).
L3MONAD3 : What made you to choose this character class?
Imbalance : I chose this character class because many player using this class and they got great skills for damage and defense.
L3MONAD3 : I see, in what aspect do think made you unique among other players?
Imbalance : I think I have little potential in different aspect of life, I'm a serious guy in the real world and have a little and talent but I'm also a stubborn and love to joke around in game. I am an athlete, coach, commissioned officer in Philippine Navy Marines and a begree holder in BS Electronics
L3MONAD3 : I can see you online and posting actively, when your not online what do you usually do? And how can you manage your time?
Imbalance : Yes, I do love GrudgeMU, I think it became and part of my life now. I love to PK, interact with other players, in guilds especially hostility guilds.
When I'm not online, I am busy working as a private security officer or I'm hanging out with my girlfriend. I love to eat, playing guitar and reading watt-pad. I am also a ROTC reservist in case of disaster and calamities. I can manage all of those by simply keeping a To-Do list.
L3MONAD3 : Is there any suggestion you want to tell us?
Imbalance : I suggest to bring back the free resets in voting, it is helpful especially to a newbie and have a WIKI guide in GrudgeMU.
L3MONAD3 : Thank you Mr. lmbaIance !!!
A castle siege is usually held online. It is a challenging game because in order for a guild to win, they must come up with the better strategy. To be able to keep the throne and guild standing, defending guild should eliminate their opponents and keep them from holding the switches. The reason why we see players near switches is because it is a must to get hold of them prior to sealing. If the crown is sealed, then the defender becomes the challenger vice versa. Defending however is not easy because it only takes a minute to seal.
For the month of October we had 4 castle siege events. As far as I can remember, CS participants were STR4NGER, KICKASS, KAWATAN and HIDEOUT. While strolling around Valley of Loren, I have seen players laughing when they are able to kill somebody, players accusing one another using cheats, all forms of trash talk and guild clashes, worse that what I see during a normal PK day. I realized, maybe castle siege is really a big deal. Well honestly when I join CS, I feel the need to win. My heart says "you have to win, it's for the guild" repeatedly. So "YES! it is a big deal" especially to those players who work hard like me. Winning makes you more confident, proud, and popular. Losing on the other hand pushes you to do better. For the first week of October, HIDEOUT guild won the siege while on the second week, KAWATAN guild won over its opponents. Sadly they were not able to defend the castle longer. HIDEOUT was successful in taking the crown. From 3rd week of October until present, HIDEOUT remains the castle lord.
GrudgeMU and Quibbler team congratulates our Castle Lords!
Happy gaming everyone!
The administration is busy these days trying to re-build the once most active and alive community. New faces and new names are rising, but just because the server is looking toward the future, that doesn't mean it should totally ignore the past. One of the best administrator the game ever had has come back to render her unparalleled loyalty and good service to the community. Former admin, Hestia who have been deeply involved with the server's online and even offline community has came back after two and a half years of hibernation.
While the server obviously has some established veterans who are helping carry the game and some up-and-coming individuals looking do the same, it can still look back in its history to find some major names that could do their job once more. Now, I'm not saying that the server should bring in a boatload of old staff to try to improve the community. But bringing in a handful to help turn the server's future around certainly couldn't hurt. So with open arms and open hearts, we welcome you back to our humble home. Welcome home, Hestia.
Hello everybody. Have you ever joined a castle siege? Well I rarely skip CS. It's fun and you'll feel the lag hahaha. You will see complaints here and there and everywhere. Nah that's part of the game and even if you won't admit, I know you complain at times too not only in CS but also in other forms of pk. Everyone does even me LOL. During CS, usually you will see players complaining about single hits and shouting at their enemies (through chat) "Cheater!", "Surrender that program", "1 hitter!", and "I know where you live" LOL. That's not new anyway. To keep you updated on our CS Diaries, let's have a flashback on our September sieges.
I think I was not able to attend some of these sieges because of hectic schedule yet I have chitchat with my friends who are die hard CS addicts and asked them some of the details. On the first week of September, HIDEOUT was victorious. Pressure was there of course because CS is not easy to win. On the 2nd week, KICKASS won. It is not unknown to everyone that these two guilds are big rivals. Well, I'll save some of their love stories for the next month so don't miss it! Alright so let me continue my story. On the 3rd week, HIDEOUT was able to seize the throne and keep it until the 4th week and until present. Pentagrams are very helpful to players nowadays unlike before when there was still no update. If you are very unlucky hunting your 4 slots pentagram, there is another alternative. Donate for it and your sleepless nights are over! Pentagrams have decrease buffs that can be activated when you hit a player. In this way, that player's defense will weaken and you can own him easily. See, you will no longer need a summoner to put innovation or weakness to your enemies because pentagram can do it per se. I haven't tried a perfect pentagram yet I am excited to get one. I'll just wait for another promo.
If you're curious as to why CS seems to be a very important event for all active guilds, I suggest you join. Don't forget to follow your heart when choosing your guild. Feel the heat and enjoy all forms of trash talk and lastly play clean, fair and square.
Quibbler Team, in behalf of the community, extends sincere congratulations to the winners of September castle siege.
May all guilds have a peaceful relationship with one another.
I rant around mentally whenever i see the "villain" and his group chatting, selling, hanging out in the market. "There's the douche! How can he still be having a good time?!", i kept exclaiming to myself. He's often seen around with a fellow, "hmm.. must be gay! xD", i assumed. I continued my daily routine, mastering the art of Business in Lorencia. To my dismay, i kept seeing more of him in my zone (the market). Leaning against the wall like a real BOSS. Still, he's with another BK, though sometimes, there's 3 or 4 of them chatting. "YEP! he's gay. Definitely." i concluded, still trying to erase the bad and humiliating past. xD
Months passed, with my own sweat and blood, i managed to complete my very first FO set. I've never felt so happy! I walked around with bragging rights that every piece of my hard-earned jewels of souls i saved daily, i got me an FO set!, "Who's your daddeh?:D", i said, patting my self on the back. I started to lessen my marketing career and shifted to a whole new level. PVP! A very good friend of mine volunteered to be my test dummy and we head on to train on pvp servers, with good practice and perseverance, we managed to take down a few goons ("villain" not included, unfortunately). I kept on plotting my "revenge" with him but one day, i heard that he got banned. Ironic, isn't it? =/...
Well, to make the story short, more good things followed. I was invited to join a guild, met my other half and went on "owning" a bunch of "haters", all of which i'm very much looking forward to share in the future.

Our server conducts special events in forum like Shutterbug of the month where players' creativity and uniqueness are being tested. This event is hosted by the moderator team. For weekly winners, they will receive 500 VIP points. Shutterbug of the month will also be chosen from the weekly winners. The winner will receive 1200 VIP points plus a Shutterbug of the Month plate. Consolation prize is 200 VIP points. For the Shutterbug of the Year, the winner will receive a season 1-4 item with full options and a tag. Consolation prize would be 10 winning stars.
Desiderata, one of our active moderators hosted another forum event and that is the Big 3 Lucky Number Event. Luckily, Mang.Tasio won the event on the first draw. The rest is history (just kidding). What I mean is that there's no lucky winner next to him yet.
GFX Tournament was hosted last month of August. BRAINWASH was the champion of the event. Next to him was Healthcliff, followed by Dous and Choshiro. Winners have received Fo weapon of choice + 10 cash points + tag, 30 cash points, 15 cash points and another 15 cash points respectively. I'm actually used to seeing these guys' names everywhere and anywhere in forum and you guys really deserve it. Congratulations although late! :D Just recently, GFX chenelle posted a DoodleArt Event. If you are interested to join, this is your chance! Join now while the thread is still open :)
Last July, HGM Cyde launched the Last Man Standing Tournament. July LMST resulted a tie and the winners were Lemures and aLeiHsx. For the month of August and September, this event is active but winners are not yet announced. FYI the prize for this event was changed from 100 cash points to 50 cash points. For those interested to join this event, visit Admin/Game Master Events Section and be updated for more upcoming events.
Congratulations to the winners and keep the events coming! #ILOVEGMU
Joining war by yourself and no buffs on is like an intentional dive down the cliff head first. A guild can only conquer a castle if they have all the best mercenaries and manpower they need. It's success is measured by the strong bond of friendship and the toughness of the alliance. We are, biology speaking, pack animals and feel the safest in groups, this pretty much explains why the masters of the biggest guilds are doing everything they can to gather as much army as possible. If you have been playing alone and guildless, you're missing half of your life (your ingame life, to be precise). Just like in real life, where you need someone to live and enjoy life, you'll enjoy a richer, more complete game experience if you play with other players as intended.
Having a guild in-game is like living in comfy home, in a community, with your family, and friendly neighborhood. The benefits of having a guild are mostly that you have help when you need it, emotional, sometimes even financial support, basically it helps you feel less alone. So all of you who have been guildless for too long, try having a guild or simply join one.. days from now, your solo "dive on a cliff" during wars will be over..this time, you're diving with the whole clan (hehe) Happy gaming! =)
I have played GMU a bit longer, but I have never once taken part in PvP. I knew nothing about it. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fun person and I do love adrenalin-yanking activities (i.e, marketing) Yes, I have been addicted to selling and buying and haggling in-game. From Scrolls to Jewels to sets, I have tried to sell almost everything I have. But not everyday is a good-market day, sometimes it was just too slow, nothing bought, nothing sold. So I decided to go to PVP server to snoop around.
P.V.P.--- Player(s) versus player(s), or PvP, is a type of multiplayer interactive conflict within a game between two or more live participants.
With no help from anyone or anything, I geared up with the items, for me was the best (I was wearing Grand soul+13 set with FO 2nd wing of soul). "I am strong!" I had to convince myself I was, or I'll never get the courage to come out of the safe zones. As I set foot to the spot known for players with homicidal thoughts and murderous instincts, one twisting skill from a BK wearing DK set and a very very shiny and sparkling 3rd wing (that time was the newest item) He looked pretty frikkn cool! like meeting superman who just swoop you away with one blow unaware that you were paper-thin. And then.. I died..
"NOOB!" yelled the BK. "I know, right?", i answered mentally. Murderers. Really? Does a good combo come with a good heaping side dish of very harsh word now? Players have their own way of playing a game, maybe this time, I play the hero, while he's really really good at playing the villain and it's how you deal with people who swears a lot that matters. Pay no attention to what the attacker is saying. You get affected, you lose. Don't get me wrong I can understand the occasional use of profanity. They often go really brutal with words and my answer will always be "thank you" but when i get more than what I can handle, Alt+F4 is always ready.
So ^-Merlin-^ the wiz woke up in a safe zone with partially depleted hope. "I'll get you next time." says my noobie wiz.
-to be continued.
Compared to the previous castle siege events, this month's full of thrill. Two of the most famous guilds now in one alliance, new guilds joining CS, famous guilds with new alliance, return of old players.. It's more fun, isn't it? These changes made CS more challenging and breath-taking. I can't wait for the next month!
Looking back, we had 5 castle siege events last month which is August. Off topic: According to some sort of article which I happen to read in my news feed, August was a lucky month because it has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays, and you'll be lucky if you saved money. Back to the topic: Did you know that whining and other form of reactions cannot be avoided? I kinda react too especially if I get killed many times in a single blow. At the end of the day, I realize that this is just a game and a game must be enjoyed. We had 5 CS events. KICKASS guild owned the castle for 2 weeks. Next to that we have HIDEOUT guild who took over. KICKASS won the next siege after that but then HIDEOUT owned it again for the 5th week. Like twitter, gaming gadgets are also trending nowadays. In just one click, the most common "123Q" combination will be clicked continuously. BK's love it. For elves like me, nah we don't need it haha.. Castle siege is held every Saturday from 8PM-10PM GMT+8. Guilds must collect Sign of lords and register them to join.
GrudgeMU and Quibbler team congratulates the winners!
