THE Philippines again sets its sights on conquering one of the most prestigious international gaming competitions—the Ragnarok World Championships.
A new team has been crowned last weeked during the RWC Philippine Leg Finals held at the SM North Edsa Skydome and after months of intense competition, they have proven themselves worthy to represent the country.
The team of Bernabe Orbeso, Marion Louise Carlos, Ron Aldwin Silvestre, Cris Elmar Barroquiña, Von Ryan Castillo, Lorenzo Canlas and Mark Edizon Clemente, collectively known as Team Naked Nanaman, bested seven other finalists from all over the country to become this year’s champs. They faced stiff competition as former RWC Philippine Leg champions—Team Suspects and Team Naked Babies—were among those vying for the top prize.
The final match came down to Team Naked Nanaman and Team Suspects. It was a back and forth battle as both teams tried to finish each other off in the best-of-five final match. In the end, Naked Nanaman defeated Team Suspects 3-2 to win the P120,000 cash prize and the title of Team Philippines.
Naked Nanaman will head to Seoul, South Korea on October where they will attempt to do what no other Philippine team has accomplished: bring home the coveted Ragnarok World Championship crown.
“We’re very confident about our chances right now,” says Team Captain Ron Silvestre. “After all that we’ve been through, we’re confident we will win this thing. We just need to stay focused. We’re thirsty for victory, so we hope you guys support us till the end. We won’t let you down.”
Besides the exciting tournament action, hundreds of RWC event attendees also got to take home MyPhone mobile units, No Fear shirts, BitDefender anti-virus licenses and shirts, Cheesecake, Etc. gift cards, gadgets from PC Express and lots of rare in-game items from Ragnarok Online.
The Ragnarok World Championships is one the longest running and most prestigious online gaming tournaments in the world. This annual competition brings together the best Ragnarok Online players from across the globe to engage in epic online battles in a bid to become the world’s best. RWC 2011 will see countries fighting for cash prizes totaling $26,000 and the Ragnark World Championship crown.

Nokia brings out two feature-rich Dual SIM phones
Since today is Father’s Day, allow me to give you a couple of gift suggestions you might want to give your dear old Dad.
Most dads love gadgets, and who doesn’t want to have a new mobile phone? Buying him a new phone can be a bit tricky though especially if your dad is still among those who’d rather just call than waste their time texting. Dad’s usually don’t have time to fiddle with all those uneccessary features and reading those tiny texts can be quite eye-straining, and if your family members are using different kinds of providers you might want to get him one with a dual sim feature so that he doesn’t have to carry around several phones.
Nokia, still one of the most user-friendly phones, has recently released two new Dual SIM models the Nokia X1-01 and Nokia C2-00. Both models offer the most convenient and intuitive experience available for switching between SIM cards—without compromising on features and fun.
If your dad loves music then the Nokia X1-01 is the perfect one for him. The X1-01 can store and shuffle THOUSANDS of songs as it supports up to 16GB of memory support, create playlists, and play music back over a loudspeaker that is the loudest and clearest ever produced by Nokia. The phone also features dedicated music side keys and a battery that will last for up to 36 hours of continued music playback! The Nokia X1-01 is available in colors Dark Grey, Red, Ocean Blue and Orange.
The Nokia C2-00 on the other hand is the first Dual SIM phone to have Easy Swap, which offers the convenience of changing SIM cards without the need to turn off the phone or remove the battery. This is especially good if he has 3 sim cards and would want to swap in his third sim. Just open the SIM door at the side of the phone and swap your SIMs. No more waiting for the phone to reboot.
With the Nokia C2-00 you can also browse the internet, read emails and enjoy instant messaging with either SIM card. Not only is the internet browsing experience far superior than that available on competing Dual SIM products, but it also supports up to a whopping 32GB memory card.
The Nokia C2-00 will let him keep thousands of photos, videos and music files with him all the time. The Nokia C2-00 is available in colors Dynamic Grey, Jet Black, Magenta, and Snow White.
And the best thing about this two dual sim phones is its price! The Nokia X1-01 sells for just PhP1,990 while the Nokia C2-00 is priced at PhP2,990.
