Featured Pinoy Online Gamer: Kent Cebedo

“Family comes first no matter what.”

- Adam Sandler

(From Movie, “Click”)

Last time, we get to know “TULISan” guy of Wasak Guild, Josh Regondola (a.k.a. Batotoy). Now, let us get to know another “TULISan” guy; but this time; he came from my very own guild: Hellios Infinitium. As an introduction to our next Featured Pinoy Online Gamer, let me tell some things about him.

I’ve been with the group for a couple of weeks (or months, I think); and he is one of the guys whom warmly welcome me in the group. The first time I’ve interacted with him thru our guild’s facebook group, to be honest, “nayabangan ako sa kanya.” It’s true. Tipong di ko yata makakasundo. Tipong mamba badtrip sa akin palagi. But, I’m wrong. As days passed by, I get to know him more. He thought me lots of things, lalo na sa in-game; despite of the fact that we have different jobs (he is a Shadow; while I’m on my way on being a Guardian). Nakakabiruan ko din sya. And now, he is my MOST TRUSTED FRIEND in Dragonica PH. Well, I will not make this longer; let’s get to know Hellios Infinitium Vice Guild Master, Spakiki; known as Kent Cebedo in real life:

Kent Cebedo; together with Vice Guild Master Gemeleigh and Guild Leader lLucifer; is helping his guildmates to the best that he can. Hmm. I wonder what his guildmates can say about him. Well, let us hear some of their comments about Spakiki:

Si Ginoong Spakiki… Siya ay isang napakahusay na NINJA, ay hindi isa na pala siya ngayong shadow. Pero paminsan-minsan ay ginagamit pa rin niya ang kanyang mga NINJA moves. ^.^

Sabi ng iba siya raw ay isang matulis na nilalang. Tingin ko hindi naman talaga siya ganoon katulis. Siguro sadya lamang siyang mapalakaibigan lalo na sa mga babae. Siya ay nasa ibang bansa. Ibig sabihin siya ay mayaman, ALAM NIYO NA. Sa sobrang yaman nga niya siya ay namimigay siya ng mga gamit sa mga kapos-palad at nagpa-tournament din siya na ang kasali ay kaming magkaka-guild at ang premyo ay tumataginting na 3K gold.

SunnySide Said:

BASTOS, SINUNGALING, TAMAD at TRASHTALKER . Ilan lang sa mga katangian na HINDI mo makikita kay Kent. Sa katunayan isa siyang mabuti, masipag, mapagbigay at responsableng gamer. Bilang forumer, maituturing siya na NPA dahil makikita mong pakalat-kalat sa kung saan-saang thread na nagbibigay ng tips sa kapwa forumer but mostly for the sake na may makitang matutulis. Bilang kaguild, isa saya sa mga taong nagbibigay buhay dito at emotero din yan paminsan-minsan.

May balak din yata siya na maging stunt man.

mabait cguro… demanding :)

That was Spakiki in the eyes of his guildmates. Let’s get to know him more as he share himself to us:

Real Life Name: Kent Cebedo (Spakiki weeee ^_^ )

Birthday: July 2, 1989

Birthplace: Ozamiz City (oh yeah! certified bisaya )

Some Info About You: Well I was a former varsity player in high school(basketball) and I played in Ireland as well in the Filipino tournaments.. Certified game addict. I’m not a nerd. Some guys are good at sports, some are good at games. I just didn’t set a limit to things that I wanted to do. All I can say is, I can be the best guy or friend you can ever have as long as you stay true to me. I’ll always have on your back no matter what. Proven and tested na po yan =)

I’m not really like most of the guys, I know this is commonly said by people but if only u take time to know me, then you’ll see what kind of human being I am. When it comes to family and people that I love, I’d sacrifice everything for them. Believe it or not, when I was working here in Ireland (di ko ma remember yung sweldo ko sa 1st job) I was earning around €350 per week on my 2nd job.. I always give the €300 to my mom w/out hesitation or her asking for anything, cause I know what our situation is. I even help 1 of my cousin in the Philippines on her tuition and now her mom as in Ireland because we were able to help her and it felt really good to see the result of your hard work and help especially now that they are having a good life.

Mataas po pasensya ko, pero yung ugali ko namana talaga sa mom ko. If love ko yung tao, ibibigay ko ang makakaya ko. Pag oras naman na gaguhin nyo ako, don’t expect me to pretend that nothing happened because surely you’ll realize the way that I will threat you. Dun ko siguro nakuha yung ugali ko na kahit wala ako mabili sa sarili ko, as long as may tao akong natutulungan, happy na ako dun. I even manage to save some of the remaining sa sweldo ko para maka bili ng X-Box sa sarili ko at para sa family ko naman, nood kami ng sine, kakain sa labas or order ng pizza. Simple but quality family time. =)

List of Online Games Played and Currently Playing: Started with Counter Strike (oh yeah! I’m sure miss nyo yan! :P), then comes Ragnarok (short time on PH) then after 5yrs I played in EURO server until it closes, thank God we got a transfer so I will be in fRO (French^^) , Gun Bound , O2 Jam(Malaysia),Maple Story , KOS,DOTA (imba support..Need nyo ako sa tournament?sure..haha) and Dragonica.

In-game names:

  • DGN – spakiki(6x Shadow), bLdyKillah(2x knight)
  • KOS – spakiki, SweetestSin(ANYA char wohoo!!)
  • DOTA – spakiki, bLdyBabyKillah
  • RO - -crystal05- (94 sniper) , ,.,Crystal,.,(85 assassin cross) , DaRk_AnG3L(9x Gunny) , **SweetestSin**(95 bard)
Kiko: How do make your characters so strong like that?
Kent: Sa DGN (1500) at KOS (500) lng talaga ako nka spend ng money to be honest..well we all know that in DGN u need to buy recipe via cash item and I have trust issues on people that I don’t know so I bought my own recipe^^ . Keep this in mind; I’m really not the type of gamer who likes RMT, maybe buy some cash items but not buying things from other players using real money.

My RO char’s are the best examples, I just look for parties and play every day whenever I can. My assassin-cross is only level 85, but I can break almost any guild solo and I give big guilds a hard time.. I have saved my RO guild many times and given them many castles from last minute breaks on the Emperium despite being outnumbered^^

My characters are not really that strong, I’m not even one of the top players in my class sa DGN. I just enjoy playing and I think that’s more important that trying to become one of the elite. I’d rather have fun than become one of the best at di nag eenjoy. =)

Kiko: How do you manage and balance your in-game and real-world life?
Kent: If ever I’m not doing something then that’s the time I play up to sawa but at the same time if ever may utos or need ko na gawin , I really set my priorities first . I can still play after I’ve done things that are needed to be done. As I grow older I was able to realize. “Family comes first no matter what”- Adam Sandler from the movie “Click”.

Kiko: Have you come to the point that your gaming life affected your real life? Especially with your family and friends?
Kent: Yeah it did. I started cutting classes or missing classes cause I was playing.. hehe .. When I started playing ragnarok again here in Ireland, I always try not to miss War of the Emperium! Oh yeah! I have always been and will be a guild wars addict. hehe. It was really hard cause almost the whole day I would spend almost all of my time in my room in front of the computer, kahit di ako nagpapa level kausap ko yung mga friends ko na mga international sa RO.. It almost like yung world ko sa RO was becoming more real than the real world. I don’t think u can blame me, most of the time real world gives you real problem. haha.

But, I later realize that I was becoming less social in the real world. I have change and I had a hard time approaching people I just met. That’s the time I realize that I needed to cut off my game time. I was depressed kasi that time. I lost my job kasi recession, ang hirap mka hanap ng work. For one year wala akong work, kaya umuwi ako ng Pilipinas at nagpalipas ng oras dun. And here I am, back in Ireland doing my best to find a new job. I don’t care what kind of job, as long as I can save up for the future this time. =)

Kiko: There are lots on Pinay Online Gamers nowadays. Do you (by any chance) seek some proof to prove that the one who you're playing is a real girl? If so, WHY?
Kent: Is that a big deal? – Well I do. like I stated earlier; I have trust issues with online gamers =) I don’t mind playing with a girl character and the owner is a guy as long as I knew it. It’s not that big of a deal to others but for me, knowing people in game and in real life is important for me.

It would be kinda weird kasi in a game like dragonica or ragnarok na may marriage system. What if u were married to a cross-dresser? Don’t you think it would be weird? I know papasok agad sa isip nyo na nakikipag flirt lang yung tao, HALLER! Wag lang po taung maging assumera/assumero para walang issue. Haha. Besides decision nyo na din naman yan kung gusto nyo magpakilala sa tao o hindi. =)

Kiko: Bakit ang TULIS nyo kapag nalaman nyo na "real "girl ung player?
Kent: Well we’re boys aren’t we? It’s in our nature naman siguro yan na medyo flirt. Pero at least di ko binabastos yung tao, I know my limitations. =)

Kiko: What do you exactly feel when you are 'constantly' pawned or owned by a girl in-game?
Kent: I don’t really mind. As long as she doesn’t have a foul mouth. The only time I ever trash talk is if that person said and used dirty or bad words against me. I mean di naman sa lahat ng panahon maiiwasan mo talaga,lalo na pag bad trip ka o mainit lang talaga ang ulo. I do tend to avoid these things whenever I can and besides; DGN is not a game of sexes isn’t it? May mga girls lang talaga that are hardcore gamers talaga. =)

Kiko: Have you fall in love in-game?
Kent: Oh well di naman talaga ma iwasan na ma develop yung mga gamers especially if that particular person makakalaro mo halos everyday tapos nag uusap pa kayo. The feeling is mutual I guess^^

But seriously, NOPE. Maybe if na chat ko sya with cam so at least alam ko na tunay sya na girl because it’s easy to make and fake a Facebook account or other social networks account xP

Kiko: If you need to choose only one between two things: girlfriend or game; which one you'll choose?
Kent: Girlfriend.. it’s a no brainer =)

Kiko: Do you prefer your girlfriends to be gamers as well, or not? WHY?
Kent: Does it matter? I don’t think it does really. I met my EX-GF outside any game and we were together for 5 long years and now here I am, single ulit haha. Don’t worry; games had nothing to do with our break-up. Not even a game in life =)

Kiko: Any tips for your fellow gamers in your current games?
Kent: Wag po masyadong ambisyo on becoming the best in that particular game , it will become a deadly obsession and baka mawala yung joy and fun mo cause sometimes if a better player is going to beat you , it sometimes eat you up inside. Masisira yung pride mo at mawawalan ka ng gana^^ .

Respect nyo nlng po kapwa gamer nyo, based on experience yung mga nakakalaro ko in game, nagtutulongan din kami in real life kahit as simple thing as talking to them on FB when you really need somebody to talk to. My guild leader in RO (german pa nga to eh :P) and DGN (also the VGM) are now 1 of my top friends in real life and they earned my respect.

Kiko: Anything else you want to say?
Kent: Well like I stated on this interview, I always like to know the people I played with in game. So feel free to add me up on Facebook: Kent Cebedo search nyo lang po ako.

Hellios Infinitium Family hello to all especially to Lucifer (boss tulis ^_^),Gemeleigh (It's JE - MI - LEY not GAME - LEIGH ^_^ haha) , fortress ( cno kaya to? o.O haha) , Kaximira (hi sis^^), Louelle (best couple ever, now my ex couple xD) and sa mga di ko na mention ma kakulitan in game at sa forums.

Lesson learned in game. Not all people are trustworthy, even if u knows them outside the game. You know who you are! ^_^

Thanks Kent for sharing yourself to us! By the way, some of his guildmates have a personal wish for him. Let us hear it from them:

Good Luck sa iyong daan patungo sa iyong target na maging isa sa pinaka-IMBANG shadow sa mundo ng Dragonica PH.
– PahNexT

Hiling ko lang sau.. :) BUUUHHHAAAYYIIINN mo ang HELLIOS INFINITIUM guild gaya ng dati :) (I believe you, idiot :D)

Para sa HELLIOS shout out ko..

That’s all about for our Featured Pinoy Online Gamer! Until next time, guys!
