The silence and boredom we are feeling in-game on June 21, 2014 was broken when GMs reminded everyone to log off by 10:00 PM of GMT+8 for the server upgrade to ex700. I didn't exactly got that at first so i had to ask my via guild chat, "@excuse me guys, did she just say ex700?", and then it was confirmed, the news just removed all the drowsiness in me and the players got surges of excitement, everyone got anxious about the new bugs it will bring but truly excited about the new items, we can't even take a seat at the famous Noria mushrooms to chat anymore!
Everybody started to talk about the ex700's new interface, new sets and new weapons, new map, and the ever-so-awaited, Pentagram and elements system. The guild took Screenshots of the last interface, lined up in Devias' gate and waved "Goodbye" like retards to the screenshot. We are all feeling the kind of excitement and anxiety that was impossible to define.
At last, after nearly a year of waiting, staring all day at the threads of ex700 teaser, Nocturnal updated the Downloads section at the main website and announced the arrival of the new season. With all trembling and shaking hands, players clicked on the DOWNLOAD link with hopes of a better and more exciting episode.

Hacking has always been the number 1 problem we've had ever since the game was born, we're actually not alone with this. Hacking is present in each and every online game. Above all the information needed for a hack case's investigation, IP's are the best lead that's needed to solve the case. This gives the staff the headache. Just before the month ended, Nocturnal gave out the best announcement I have ever heard in my entire MU life. The IP Logging System on website.
Now we can literally see all logged IP Address for our account on website. This is not only a big help for us, users, to determine who else logged our accounts, we can also see their geographic locations, where they are from and their IPs, respectively. Now seniors can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel and lightened up their burden by a lot.
On the other hand, the complete players rankings and castle siege are added back on the website's index which sure will spice up our gaming more than ever!
Castle Siege is an event held during Saturdays from 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM GMT+8. Prior to this much awaited moment, guilds who wanted to challenge the Castle Defender will have to register Sign of Lords to be able to participate. Some fail and some succeed; we can never be too complacent with our victories. Castle siege gives unlimited chances for those who really wanted to take it.
This month of June, main siege participants were the HiDeOuTs and 3KINGS together with their mercenaries. Sadly there only few guilds who joined. HiDeOuT was able to defend it's stand then after a week, 3KINGS was able to grab the castle from them. Again, HiDeOuT guild owned the castle and never let go of it until present. This month has been very fascinating because Ex700+ was launched and new character sets and skills were showed off. Summoner's reflect buff has been enabled as well as the other character skills. Sign of Lord drops increased for castle holders hunting in Land of Trials. They will also have the advantage of getting season 7 items at a higher rate.
Quibbler Team congratulates the CS winners for this month. For those who wanted to join Castle Siege, this is the best time to show everyone what you've got. Let's rock !

If you know Christmas Eve of Avenue Q probably you'll know what she meant by singing a line that goes like this. "The more you ruv someone the more he makes you crazy. The more you ruv someone the more you wishing him dead". She's a Japanese working at a Korean Deli because she needs money to pay for her bills.
Admit it. We go crazy in love. Boys court girls but for some, it's the other way around. Nowadays, unexpected things as such happens because people don't know how to control their emotions. There is a time for everything. Meaning we don't have to hurry love; we should wait instead. Oh trust me... True love generates respect. Some people get married at an early age. Others may be against it but I'm not because marriage is a choice. The secret of a strong relationship is when partners choose to love each other forever though it is not perfect as it sounds.
Love yourself, treat yourself. Love will come unexpectedly. Enjoy being free from heartaches and headaches. My dad used to tell me these things. Marriage is not a joke. You'll realize it when you're in the situation. Now that you still have plenty of time, don't rush things. Think.
