MMORPG CHALLENGE: FELDA,School And Angry Treant!

The Inn. I Wonder If They Have "Special Room Service"


Once again, our journey continue in the World Of Kung Fu!


But this time we have a slight changes in terms of completing our mission quest. Instead of killing mobs or sending some quest stuff, we are now force to gather material by a more conventional method, farming! Basically we started off as kung fu hero and now we are stuck in gathering materials to complete our quest. We are force to cutting grass for herbs, chopping trees for woods and mining for ore. This game really should be used by FELDA instead to promote agriculture as a legitimate business, which is true! In this game, one of the best earliest way to earn money is to gather raw materials,open your own shop and sell it to other players!

Dont believe we spend our time farming? Check this out:


Warning: Cutting Tress In Real Life Is Hazardous To Environment. Dont Try This At Where Eva U Are




This is definitely not a game for environmentally friendly people. But do not worry, the trees will grow back like mushroom after the rain.


Since Triz a.k.a SinisTers(In game nick) is on SPM period as well as waiting for our new 3 friends who wanted to join our journey lvl up, we decided to just play farmer for awhile as well as forging our weapons and armors to make it stronger. It wasnt that hard to forge it but after +4, the forging item have a tendency to break if fail. So its best we keep it to +4 until we are rich enough to afford to keep on breaking our precious item.

Didnt i mention we have 3 new friends? Yup we manage to get 3 new players to join us after we post our previous article here. Since i got NBTD, better i help them lvl up by killing up quest boss, playing a role as big brother and sifu in WOKF(although im jst lvl 22).

Helping Newbies In Their Quest


We started to notice that lvling is getting harder from lvl 20 onwards. With lots of stronger monster reapppear and harder to kill in a mob. We recommend everyone to have a habit to partying after reaching this lvl.


Oh btw since i got NBTD again, i manage to gather all the materials required to form our own school!(another name for guild/clan). Since we are doing some sort of review, so we definitely need to try all the aspect WOKF offer in the game.Check it out below:



Founder Jali To You!

LOL the nice thing about having a school is as usuall school war! With lots of cool exp and items not to mention bragging rights, its something we definitely must try. Though maybe not now since we definitely gonna be squish like flies.


So thats all folks! I end this week journey with some interesting and amazing pics below. Till then, everybody loves kung fu fighting! Huhhhh!




Some Nice Graphic I Must Say


Ooo My Staff Is Shining~



Mother Nature Respond!


Angry Treant: This Is For My Trees! Jali: This Is For My Life!


If you guys would like to join us and have fun, download World Of Kung Fu Here!

Blizzard releases patch 1.16.0 for Starcraft

I'm writing this article not because there are many Starcraft players who care about the game. Pratically this game is already dead in Malaysia but all I want is to say is that Blizzard is a company who cares about their games, no matter how old and how sucky it is. So Blizzard recently released the new 1.16.0 patch for Starcraft. Many exploits were fixed and most of them concerns Zerg. So here is the changelog:

Feature Changes

- In-game chat is now saved in replays. Note: whispers are not saved.
- Hitting the Escape key while in the chat room will clear your typed text.
- “/reply” (or just “/r”) will send a whisper to person who most recently whispered you.

Bug Fixes

- Fixed localization issues with “from” and “to” in whispers.
- Starcraft now only uses as much CPU as it needs to run smoothly.

Exploits

- Fixed an exploit which allowed Zerg players to gain minerals through mutations.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed Zerg players to recycle an upgrading building.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed Zerg players to extend their creep with a drone.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed Zerg players to move Drones over impassable terrain.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed Terran players to drop a nuke anywhere on the map.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed players to pause the game while in the pre-game lobby.

SGNDT 2008 FINALE


Last weekend, SMM Grand National Dota Tournament(SGNDT) 2008 was held at Berjaya Times Square. The launch was symbolize with ice braking ceremony as well as SMM crew wearing skirts officiated by none other than Dr.Ricky Lim!

As usuall, the tournament has never failed to attract more and more people to either participate or just be a spectators. This year SGNDT has boost its cash prize to up to a total of RM120,000 and more! Not just that, SMM go a lil bit further by inviting 8 international teams to participate in the tournament as well. This is trully a challenge to our local team.

Unfortunately, the results was not sided on our local team. The greatest dissapointment is when Kingsurf who got no.2 in ESWC Grand Final only manage to get 4th place when they lost to CANT and Evo-xtc in the winner and loser bracket respectively. But the WCG Asia 2008 Champion Ehome prove that they are the best team through out the whole tournament and as well as the whole Asia.

The result is as follows:

Champion: Ehome

1st Runner up: Evo-xtc

2nd Runner up: CANT

4th Place: Kingsurf

5th Place: Fnatic

6th Place: Survivor

7th Place: Ucpro- Tbun- W4si

8th Place:- PGA


As far as coverage is concern, there is just plenty to talk about. An event which won 2 Guinness Malaysia Book Of Record for most participants as well as the largest cash prizes is undescribeable. Instead we let the pics below speak for itself how awesome the tournament is. And dont forget to watch some interesting videos that we manage to caught. So enjoy! ^^

MMORPG Challenge:Everyone loves Kung Fu Fighting!!!

Just a few days back, Spotgamers have decided to do our own MMORPG review to support the MMORPG community in Malaysia. Instead of us compiling review base on rating or from other gamers, we play the game in a different way. We gonna select a random MMORPG, doesnt matter new or old, nice or whacky, we will just grind on it. How we judge the MMORPG is nice or not is base on our articles and the time we gonna spend on it. If we stop playing tomorrow, well you get the point. If we still playing after AT LEAST 1 MONTH, then you must try! So as you can see, we cant lie. At the same time we would like to invite all our readers as well to join the fun as well! We know everyone have their own stuff to do so we decided to just play 2 hrs every nite. Even if you miss 1-2 nite its ok we will still play together. Since its the holiday season and if you guys wanna try something new, why not join us?


The Spotgamers duo decided to embark on another path through our gaming journey. Jali and Tris decided to travel into the world of MMORPG. We decided to go into games which are not so popular among the gaming community in Malaysia and we've decide on the game called World of Kung Fu. However, this game was released in Malaysia in chinese and the duo found the US version.

World of Kung Fu is actually the combination of several types of MMORPG's out there such as World of Warcraft, Silkroad Online and ROSE online. The rating from mmorpg.com is also very promising with users rating the game 7.89 over World of Warcraft's 7.78. This was what tempted to duo to try it.

The game has some of the following features such as professions, dungeons, arena PVP and wedding system. Professions like cooking, blacksmithing, making medicine is available for every player to do. Gathering herbs, wood, ores and meat is also available. Dungeon quest are available daily, where players can do the quest 3 times a day. This is similar to the raid of World Of Warcraft. The arena PVP can also involve the clan or school in this particular game. Wedding system, they have totally no comment on this. Ranking is also available in the game. The Silkroad Online system of hunting thiefs is also here. However players can approach the prison guard or Watchmen and check for who is wanted. You can accept the player you want to hunt and go take him down for money.

In World Of Kung Fu, who have no special job but you have different weapons to choose from and master. The sword is a weapon which is easy to handle but difficult to master. It is a hybrid weapon as one can use it to defend and attack. It is the most versatile weapon in the game. The Hook weapon is the Jack-Of -All-Trades. They can attack, defend, de-buff and heal as well. They can fill into any role and assist as well. The Fan are the master of healing. Without one of this, a team will never function well. The Hammer&Axe is the DPS weapon. A strong damage will result in a weaker defence. That is the Hammer&Axe but it is a need when it comes to boss fights. The Broadsword is the weapon that kills with one shot. They can debuff thier opponents and also deal high damage to thier opponents. The Spear is the easiest class to play and also to level up. Being able to deal damage in an area is totally what a solo player wants. Killing a group of mobs is easy for this weapon. The Staff is the best defender in the game.Their weapon can is like the spear but has a weaker attack and stronger defence. This is a wanted tanker. The Bow has super criticals and a high DPS as well. And as usual, range attackers are weak. Lastly, the fist is the hardest weapon class to play.The Fist users use a lot of Damage over Time spells and their ability to weaken opponents. They are however a weak crowd control.

So the duo embarked on their journey today and they played for a time of 12 HOURS. They did many things on their journey and this are some of the photos from the game by Jali and Tris.

Jali (left) and Tris (right) in the game. Tris is a male in real life ok.
