Controversial Dragonica Hydra Server

It was almost 2 weeks ago since we start to experienced difficulty in entering into Dragonica Online PH Client. Lots of us wasn't able to login our accounts no matter how many times we try it. (some said they tried to login for almost an hour, but nothing happened) This is due to increasing number of gamers playing Dragonica Online on Philippine Server. That is why, E-Games annouced that they are going to open a new server hopefully by the end of September, 2010. Some find it exciting, many find it irritating. Lots of players said that E-Games should open new channels instead of a new server. But E-Games didn't do it.

Why E-Games decided to launch a new server instead of adding new channels? I think it is because the current Dragonica Online PH server (Wyvern Server) already reached its maximum limit. Even if they add new channels at Wyvern Server, it will not increase the number of players' capacity that the game server can hold; instead, it will just divided the gamers into smaller playing groups.

Let us assume that Dragonica Server is a Family Sized Pizza which is good for 16 persons only. If the pizza is divided for 16 persons or less, each will recieve a fair share of pizza, and everyone will be satisfy, right? Now, Let's divided the pizza for 32 or 48 persons, do you think anyone will be satisfy on what he will recieve? No. The best thing to do there is to buy another Family Sized Pizza so that there will be ample or fair share of pizza for everyone.

Same thing goes to game servers. We can't force Wyvern Server to accomodate 16,000 gamers if it can only holds 12,000 players. That is why E-Games dicided to open up the new Hydra Server for them to accomodate the increasing number of gamers playing Dragonica Online. They are doing it because they want to satisfy us to the best that they can.

For now, while there are single server available for us, I'm asking my fellow Dragonicans to be patient as E-Games doing their best to launch the new server as soon as possible. =)

Don't hesitate to cast your vote here whether you agree with my opinion or not because all comments are appreciated.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 Movie Trailer

It was no more than two months to go before the release of the last sequel of Harry Potter series: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; which was divided into two parts. The first part will be release by November, 2010 while the 2nd part will be release by July, 2011. Here are the excerpt of the movie synopsis of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1:
Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction— the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart. Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort…alive. Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale— the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks. Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “The Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.

I was so surprised that time that I wasn't able to took a video of their performance. Only pictures is what I got from them. Anyway, take a look of some of the pictures taken during the live performance of Morningside:

Successful Dragonica Grand Commercial Launching

September 11, 2010 was a remarkable day for E-Games as they launched they most awaited game of the year: Dragonica Online. Attended by lots of Dragonica Online Players (or Dragonicans for short), the 4th floor of SM North EDSA Annex was filled with fun and excitement.

As early as 8:00 A.M., there are already some Dragonicans waiting for the opening of the mall entrance. Most of them are joining the 4 vs 4 Slayers’ Showdown and the 1 vs 1 Trial of Heroes Tournament. After waiting for a few hours; as the mall entrance opened at exactly 10:00 A.M.; Dragonicans swiftly rushed to the event area for early bird (or should I say, “slayer”) registrations. Gamers got free E-Games Domination IV baller and RanGirls 2010 Calendar.

Free to Play Treat for Dragonicans!

There are lots of things that happened that day. There is a whole day free-to-play treat for Dragonicans. There is also a LIVE! Big Wheel Bonanza wherein Gamers have spun the Big Wheel and won some cool in-game stuffs like Lavalon Heart, Lvl. 30 Pet Egg, Gada Coins, and many other items that can use in the game. There is also a Choose-a-Chest Booth wherein Dragonicans tried their luck as they opened a box and won the prize inside it.

The event was hosted by Dianne Sison (RanGirl Calendar 2010 Model for the Month of September) and Miss Jane (PM Steffy). They conducted the “Bring-Me” and “Name-That-Mob” Games. Dragonicans really enjoy a lot more; not only because of the prizes given away; but also because of the beautiful ladies that giving the prizes.
