RF Online Philippines – The only true MMORPG locally published that has a futuristic setting, PVP battles, and robots/mecha will be giving gamers Free to Play access once Episode 2 launches on August 28, 2007. Cafe Owners and Local MMO Player better take a good look at this game especially if you haven’t played it before due to having a subscription fee.
Here’s one interesting insight from a cafe owner’s perspective regarding our free to play games:
I am shop owner here in Paranaqueâ€¦ I have been reading lahat ng comments nila about RF going F2P. Actually ako kasama ako dun, pero sa ngayun, on the contrary, I noticed that everyone here are anticipating the Episode2.. why? because of the coming F2P of RF in August 28â€¦Madami na daw silang babalikâ€¦ Everyday, this has been the topic here, and im expecting that the coming Episode2 will once again dominate the world of MMORPG here in the Philippines.
If you could remember, the once failing internet cafe business was saved by the arrival of MMORPG especially Ragnarok Philippines by LevelUp games. No game has ever dominated pRO, there was always a comparison, mas cute ang graphics, mas maraming players, mas sikat, and so on and so onâ€¦ then came RF Onlineâ€¦ Most of the time, lahat ng naglalaro sa shop naming RF langâ€¦ Solid Graphics, better gameplayâ€¦ yan ang feedback lagi ditoâ€¦ nakahanap na sila ng bagong game na kakaadikanâ€¦ then nung ngkaron na ng bayad, lalo naâ€™t mas mataas ang rates compared sa iba, most of them looked for another game, couple of them stayedâ€¦ some have gone back playing pROâ€¦ since then, wala nang dominating game na nilalaro sa shop, halo halo na, sabog sabog, sa dami ba naman ng mga games na naglipanaâ€¦
THEN, another company introduced the F2P system in MMORPG, actually I was hesitant to install it, ang pangit kasi ng graphicsâ€¦ (oops sori ,), syang lang effort ko sa paginstall, walang maglalaro nito, YUCK (oops sori ulit). Pero sige pagbigyan ang ahente, dami nilang mga abubot, poster at kung anu anong ka ekekan na bibigay sa amin eh, aba grasya din yunâ€¦ To my SURPRISE, (totoo at alam nyo un), IT DOMINATED the shop, as in DOMINATED, taob lahat ng games., maski sa mga kabilang shops, para silang nagdive sa chipwar (hehehe). RAGASAâ€¦ (no offense LU ha, pero ito talaga story dito sa shop namin), hmmm bakit kaya pumatok, Free dw kasi..simple as that, then I NOTICED, parang mas magastos ata ah, hmmm, pero patok pa din ehâ€¦ di nila narerealize na mas magastos na nilalaro nila, ang swanget pa ng graphicsâ€¦ pero tuloy pa rin sila, kasi ang RF dw may bayad.. WAAAHâ€¦ Pilit kong pinaparealize sa kanila na mas makakatipid sila sa RF mas maganda pa ang graphics at gameplay..
PERO, my bagong salta na namn, Tatluhan ang playersâ€¦ (ehem ehem) ang ganda ng graphics (pero no match pa din sa RF), at eto malupit, FREE dinâ€¦ so to cut the short story long, este long story short, KABOOM, nalusaw ang mga nglalaro ng mga @#$, syempre, etong bagong laro na to, maganda na graphics, Free pa, LUMIPAT silaâ€¦ hmmmm
NGUNIT, datapwat, subalit, ang bida daw laging pabugbog sa una, sa huli, sya rin ang panalo. Nung dumating ang balita na F2P na RF, everone was excited, and I predict, with the coming of Episode 2, this is the game that will once again DOMINATE the world of MMORPG here in the Philippines.. Free parekoy, at ang graphics, unparalledâ€¦
Well, lets see na lang this AUG 28, I think this will be a WARâ€¦
