    Default Confessions of a Ragnarok Online Addict



    Back in 2003, during my college years, I got addicted to what was then one of the most popular MMORPG: Ragnarok Online. In an age where most of my peers were thinking of who to date and where to fuck, I was more concerned then of what monster to kill and where to boost up my character's level. I would skip classes or lunch---more often both---just so I could have an extra hour of playing time. I would even spend thousands of pesos to buy godly items and rare cards in the game. I recall one time when I spent PhP15,000 in just one transaction to buy a few billions of zennies (Ragnarok currency), a couple of extremely rare cards and some powerful items. I was that passionate a player.

    To some---okay, to many---it would seem to be an awfully stupid waste of money. And time. And effort. After all, what does one get out of playing an online game? Eyebags, you might say. A gaping hole in your pocket, you hasten to add. Oh, and don't forget low---no, failing---grades.

    Well, to be honest, I got all that. But then I got something more. Something quite unexpected. Something incredible and fantastic that until now, I still find it hard to believe I've found it. And in Ragnarok, to boot.

    I found love.

    My name is Paopao and this is my story.

    very funny almost ridiculous..

    But I knew two people..

    Boy meets girl
    Girl meets boy
    And somehow
    Somewhere
    Through late night gaming grind
    Through their funny misadventures
    In a peculiar but undiscountable way
    They met
    And they fell in love.

    And since they were physically longing for one another
    Somehow.. this game bridged that gap a little.
    Made a way for two people to bond beyond distance.

    CHEERS sa mga nagtagumpay sa pag ibig
    Lalo na sa mga nakahanap sa lugar
    Na madalas ay hindi aakalain ng kung sino
    Na matatagpuan ang kanyang pag ibig :cheers:



    I want to know how your story went.

    wala akong sariling pc that time kaya rent lang ang mahal pa ng rent sa shop dati 30php per
    hr -_- tapos bibili ka pa ng RO card na 100 for 8hrs then 50 for 4 hrs nakalimutan ko ung mas
    mataas na hrs if magkano.. usually kasi yan lang kaya ng budget ko hahaha
    dati kahit stop dance pa ung chaos noon masayang masaya ka. okay lang ang lag..


    pero sa panahon ng mga kabataan ngayon konting spike lang hahambalusin na nila ung keyboard at mouse

    Same here sa akin. Inubos ko ang college tuition fee for this game. nasira ang career ko noon. Electrical Engineering ako sa isang School in manila. Kalakasan ng server na Chaos halos bumibigay ang server noon at nagsshut down pa ng 1 hour. Nasira ang buhay ko noon atleast nakabalik ako sa tamang landas ngayon, BS in Electrical Engineering with PRC license. Registered Electrical Engineer at Registered Master Electrician.

    Magsisisi ka sa huli pero mas nakakapang hinayang yung di mo masubukan.
