WHEN DRAGON NEST was introduced in the Philippines last year, it not only made waves among the local gaming community but it also created shockwaves among its competitors.
It quickly became the Philippines’ fastest rising online game and also made it into Google’s annual Zeitgeist as the Philippines’ top 4 most searched online game. Dragon Nest has also become a phenomenon in events, as evidenced in its co-hosting the 2012 Pinoy Gaming Festival, where in its first day, so many people were disenfranchised.
Today, Cherry Credits, the Distributor of the game in the Philippines and across the Southeast Asian region, is thanking all of its Pinoy gaming fans with an event that will surely mark the annals of Pinoy gaming history. This event is Cherry Convention 2013.
We will bring you the ins and outs of this monumental event as ZENhonbu brings you again an unprecedented look inside the upcoming Cherry Convention as we feature them in Before Events.
Details were given in their official event site, but here are the gist of it. Cherry Convention will surely be a blast among Dragon Nest gamers and fans (and even non-fans as well). There is the Speed Match PVP game for Dragon Nest and Avatar Star, where you could win prizes like an iPad Mini and other exciting prizes, A Stick-on event will also be held where you could also win plushies and pre-paid internet sticks.
The main highlights of the event will be The Cherry Cosplay Concerto and Alodia’s Birthday Bash. Cosplay Concerto promises to be the grandest cosplay event in the country with total prizes amounting to PHP 75,000. There will be two categories, one for the Open Category, where the winner can win up to PHP 5000 pesos, and the Dragon Nest Category, where the winner will win up to PHP 35,000 in cash!. Those registering for the event will have two channels to choose, either they register online or on-site.
Alodia’s Birthday Bash, on the other hand, will happen on the first day of the event where Popular cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao will delight her fans with performances, She will even choose a choice cosplayer who will win PHP 1000 and other prizes.
Dragon Nest Game Producer Addison Kang, GM Adriano and other guests complete this very special event.
Tickets for the event costs PHP 250 and is available at all SM Tickets outlets across the country, The tickets are valid for one day but those tickets can be used on both days. As an added treat for those who were disenfranchised during the Pinoy Gaming Fiesta 2012, Those who had their tickets but were never used will be given free entry!
Below is the complete details for those who will buy the presold tickets, tickets sold during the event and those who held their unused PGF 2012 Tickets.
In addition, those who registered online for the Cosplay Concerto will also be given free entrance to the event provided that they paid the 7200 CC (PHP 250) registration fee. And also, free Slurpee drinks will also be given to those gamers and people who will attend to refresh and replenish your inner gamer energy!
Again, it’s the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 1 and 2 that we are talking about, so do expect long lines, queues of people and tighter security measures to be implemented as well.
From Here now, See you at the Event!
