Happy to be Alive.

Glory be to God.

4:30 AM, March 23 of 2009, early Monday morning. Back from our meetup with charles/joseph @ makati, in a cab with Justin and Jarbs.

After dropping Jarbs off at their village gate, we proceed to the next stop which is Justin's place. As he was signalling for the driver to stop near at the safe side, we were going straight aimlessly at the road islands/gutters at the middle of the road @ 90 KPH.

The driver fell asleep.

Our screams of terror woke him up just in time, as we collided front tire first on the middle island, bouncing off violently as he tried to avoid more damage, from the left side of the road straight to the right in an ugly manner. With me in front, I could only wish that in that spur of the moment that there was no car behind us in that other side of the road or simply put, it will crash straight to us full speed, right into my seat.

A speeding pick up truck passed by and stopped cautiously at the side where we originally hit. If it was in the other side, I would be mincemeat by now. 

If the driver didn't wake up in time to break and stop us from crashing full speed at the middle island, our cab would have flipped 360 or straight to the other side of the road where other cars are speeding full ahead from another direction.

He was all apologies. He's been driving for 23 hours with no sleep and he wanted to earn enough for his kid's tuition fees. I asked him to park first near my usual drop point and made him drink coffee. There will be no us to scream at him if he falls asleep in the middle of the road again.

He was thankful and apologetic. I was just happy to see no one hurt. I did hurt my left hand but I'd lose it any day over my life. The listeners over at the food stall where he drank coffee was urging me to file a complaint for his recklessness. I call it human error or perhaps, just plain fatigue. We all get tired after all. He is a nice man as I see it so I let it go, wishing him a safe trip home as he kept apologizing as I boarded my next ride home.

One last look on the badly bruised tire that saved our lives reminded me of how God does his wonders, no matter what, who, where or how you've been.

Learn to value what you have. My life surely didn't flash right in front of me in this nearest death experience I ever had, but it made me realize that in a flicker of an eye, everything we all worked for could be gone.

Gone for good. Thank you Lord. Thank you for saving us.

Still here

Haha.. Blog dead? Almost died completely. But nah.. Still here.

So what has happened to me? Hella lot my friends. Haha.

Personal life aside, GE has changed an awful lot from the time I was last here in my dear blog..

The elemental gates (fire,lightning) were somehow explored already, vergo dies in under a minute (given that we camp 2 hours for it sometimes), diablo and gerero looked like cockatrices to the experts, CW resets monthly, baron quests and the arrival of 92 elite weapons, new RNPCs.

The rise of power by some factions and the fall of some. Hella lot.

I would like to catch up with all the events going on lately but I still havent recovered from my injury fully. I will when I get back. Can't fill this blog with emo stuff. NOOOOOOOOOOO...


Thanks to my friends and family in AF for hanging around still. I appreciate everything you give and for staying despite all the issues lately. I'll be back and we'll be back.

Love and peace everyone.

MAJOR UPDATE: POGS 2008, Colony Wars, Item Updates and err.. LIFE :D

AHHHHHHHH YESSSSSSSSSS! Finally an update! LOL. Yes yes, Mr. Welling has been very busy lately with life, both IG and IRL. Mom's gone into rehab for a possible slip disc and aunt's been in the hospital because of DHF and I've been busy a bit. Yes yes. Thanks to my friends and my darling though, I kept my sanity amidst the times of chaos.

Chaos, bloody perfect word.
Chaos Leader! Yes that bonehead moron from the secret temple. He sure is tough but worth the wait somehow. Why? You go figure!

This past CW saw the shift of power in caravaggio from the mighty hands of Reconquista into the 4 other major factions in the map. For a quick recap on how the maps were distributed, take a peek:

The Colony Holders:

AF - 4

Supper - 2

Reconquista - 5

Eclipse - 5

Eden - 5

Our last minute conquest of Feruccio junction was a super buzzer beater. Too bad no one took a screenie. We got FJ and a split second later, "Colony War is Now Over" Notice Appeared. Broad was buzzing because of the feat. Ahh.. Sweet.

What to expect for this week's CW? Recon's comeback and Our mighty stand to try beat them. It has always been a pleasure playing with them on CW. Mighty indeed.

Stay tuned this week for more action in caravaggio!


Earlier that day before the colony wars, we formed a small AF group to attend the POGS 2008 event at Trinoma for the 2 v 2 PVP event. Basically, I only attend gaming events for GE stuff so whatever gimmick was going on there that was not GE related, I didn't quite notice (what a snob!). Here are some of the pictures taken:

From Left: Hudiciaro (holding mommy barbie's baby gal), ·™, BaRbIeDoLLs, Riskbearer ( in orange), Pinkzy (Behind Riskbearer), CM veya, moi and Vmos.

Me and Philippine CM Veya

Maki (·™ Family) and Rob (Welling Family) Of AdeptasFraternas Caravaggio : Champs of POGS 2008 GE 2v2 PVP Tourney =D

We had fun at the event, thanks to the live bands and the pretty girls (according to my factionmates.. my eyes are set on one girl only and she wasn't in the event =p ) that staved off out boredom while waiting for the actual start. It was a single round sudden death type so that meant one loss and you're out. We beat the Reclusion brothers, Nate and Darrick of Caracci on round one of the tourney and met our AF Faction mates Riskbearer and Vmos in the semis. Luckily, we beat them and faced of against our AF buddies Pinkzy and Hudiciaro in the finals which we won in a nicely fought friendly game. YEY.. Champs.. HAHA.

We hurriedly went out of trinoma and headed back to our base LAN to prepare for CW. Whew! Just in the nick of time. ~_~

A Record

well sadly, I don't have a screenshot of our attendance for CW night because I was at lan.... and I forgot.. zz... But yes! For the first time in AF history, our attendance went past the 50 people online marked! yes.. it was 69 at 1 point but I was pretty much not used to giving commands to that many people. Previous wars for AF has seen around 20-30 families playing CW and it has been just that for around 4 months. The defunct faction Revolution got its members looking for a new home and I hope they found one here in AF. We'll just have to get used to that many people playing war now. 2 colonies isn't bad after all!
Welcome to AF (this goes to the new members) . Hope you find a new home in here. Hi baby~ :P

AF: The Rising

Ahh... It has been a while. First of all, a happy new year to everyone!

A lot has transpired within the last month of 2007. The experience has been amazing and the changes that happened has brought a lot of excitement to the remaining AF loyalists. With the disbandment of Revolution due to Tine's retirement from GE, AF has acquired around 30+ new players. At least now, more numbers to go out there in cwar and try our luck. It will be the first time possible I'll see 40 people online on war! WOOOOOT!! Haha I sound excited. Because contrary to what people believe about our attendance in the war, it has always been 15-20 people playing war out of about 30 online. Pretty cool eh? And since the colony reset will implement after this maintenance (I suppose?), everyone has a chance to prove their worth on Sunday when it's the start of the party elections (another assumption).

So basically, this is a fresh start of Adeptas. New Look. New people. New energy. A lot of new things to look forward to in the coming year.

It’s been one hell of a ride trust me..

Adeptas has been through hell and back trying to stand firm and doing our best to stay steady for this faction we treat us our home and our faction mates who we call family already. From the full cast of 100 people that included people from PasawayProphecy, Unholy, VietnamIdols and few foreign friends from Luminaire and UK, our roster count is down to 70 whereas, only 30-50 people are left active and 35 being the max number of attendants on colony wars and it has been the same scene for the past 3 months. We’ve been the whipping boys, the bad asses, was stepped on, loved, hated, been blanked thrice on CW and even got my personal life hooked into it. It was hard; so hard that at times, I felt like quitting but ended up staying because of friends. For those times I felt like leaving the community and the game, I felt the heavy pressure of being a leader despite the fact that yes; it’s only a game. But friendships won me over and I ended up staying. I was dubbed attention seeker, quitter, whiner and even a backstabber on those times that I was so vulnerable.

This last Sunday, we were wiped off again from the map and reality bit me. I was so hellbent on revenge and getting back at the personal assaults thrown at me and my faction that I lost my cool for a while and thought of merging with eclipse. But my friends didn’t welcome the idea that well so to clear things up, I asked them:

Moments before their answers, I felt like the biggest loser of them all because I can’t do anything about being blanked in CW. But upon thinking and being reassured by my friends that win or lose we’ll stay one. I thought that pleasing everybody should be my main goal but I was wrong I told myself. I was spanked by reality when my friends responded this way despite the insurmountable odds we’ve faced for days, weeks and months in the game. I am very much proud that I stood for something I should have said and done earlier. Adeptas is staying for good like it or not. And we maybe down and out when you thought we are.. But trust me we’ll be back better, badder and stronger from these setbacks.


Side note:

CW breaks friendships, keeps you wondering what went wrong and raises our blood pressures out of nowhere that we never we thought we’ll have. If any of you are reading this (Fellow faction leaders), you very well know what I mean. You may have loved me, or hated me or didn’t even care at all at what I’ve done for my faction. You as leaders very well know your duties for you people. GG to you. Had so much fun. Peace out to EsBell, DoraemonX, Tine, Century, IceFox and thanks so much to AzureRain for being such a great sport, RedstarAvengers for the support and ETS (wuhoo) and buddies Swish and Wooot. Goodluck to my pal IsDope on NS. You guys are great. J
