Thanks for the visits to my site tho its been vacant. i've uninstalled my WYD, deleted everything cept the favorites in my IE (soon will tho lol) but i will never abandon this blog and its achievement! :D
WYD Journal Event
Yea, so it is finalised, the Event's Grand Prize been changed to Ancient God weap with no stats. LOL really laughable. Thank goodness i left early. :P
Can see many up and coming new bloggers tho, keep it up :D
Imbalances in the Game.
Lol. they wanna tell us how imbalanced it was to have perfect stats weaps given to bloggers who blog everyday and crack their nuts, i mean brain to conjure up wonderful entries. Now look at this Update link.
They're giving away wonderful prizes, and TONNES of them to people who spend on Wcoins during the month of September. They just made the saying, "The rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer" so freaking true.
Lol. well i dont know man just my 2 cents gotta let it out. Hope this game's management wont go bad the same way in SD.
No offence tho! peace out :P

Goodbye my friends.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for~ me.
I'm not gonna post today's topic as a summission in CM Lair as i dont intend to get prizes for this anymore. This will be my last and final entry and its gonna be lengthy, so spare some time for me wont ya?
Before i start, i wanna thank all you readers for the 1,000 hits at this blog. Its an amazing feat for me and i really appreciate you guys reading. really.
I'm the first blogger to post my picture up and many of you guys share your comments and even SultanJohor edited my picture which i really liked. None but one said i needed a makeover lol, i cant be fcuked bout what you think really. Dont hafta mention the name you can find it for yourself. (:
I'm famous and have reputation as a blogger in WYD now. People want me to use my blog to continue blogging for the Ancient Weap, but sorry guys, no can do. My style of writing is very distinctive and i would like to leave this blog clean and not abuse it.
I made this WYD Magazine coverpage and intended to summit it for the fan art event but since im leaving i'd share with you guys.
Its a sudden and swift change i know you guys may feel. One moment i just won Season 1 and the 1st weekly prize for Season 2 and now im leaving. Well, im just so disappointed in my luck in this game. Therefore this entry will be full of my opinions, opinions that i didnt voice out due to the backlash i might receive if i let it out.
You ready? Here we go.
Reason i left.
Firstly, what are you reasons for gaming? No matter what your reasons might be, it all boils down to this final point; to have fun. If you read my post in August i was hooked to the money cube and i still am.
From 150mil which i scrimped and save by joining leagues, making sub accounts for free hp pots and whatever a dedicated gamer will do, i made it to 400mil. The greed in me persisted and eventually i got it to 1 billion.
Only way to win in gambling is to know when to stop like i mentioned before and i didnt. i kept on trying and proceeded to lose it all. From the heavens i fell down to hell, so fast that i skipped Earth.
Im having fun playing this game really. But the disappointment i receive is far far greater. I even sold the 10 Laks you see for 45mil and played the cube; wanting to make a comeback and made it to 85mil and lost it all again :D
Logged my sub account which had 16mil made it to 30mil and lost it all again :D
The disappointment and sadness i felt was contradicting my reasons to play on, and read on to know what are the other factors.
Golden tip for you: If you made a 100% profit, its time to stop really. You see the pattern around here?
Regarding the Ancient Weapon Hoo-ha
So i know there was this guild gathering where all leaders and OPs attended with GM Helius and they were briefed on the oncoming events and stuff.
Many of them complained that the WYD Journal Event prizes of giving Ancient Weapon was too unfair, imbalanced and what not. Well, i agree but to a certain extent.
You see, i too feel that increasing the total winners from 3 to 10 was a terrible mistake made by the team. It will spoil the balance of the game tremendously.
A simple and shallow example will be that 6 winners outta the 10 were in blue guilds. 1 in red, thats me. and the rest pending. Imba? go figure.
I felt that at most CMs should do was to increase it to FIVE (5) at most. But oh well the decision is final so now people are complaining bout Season 2.
It was supposedly decided that GM Helius that the prize will become a +9 God Weapon, no ancient. Well, who the hell will put in so much effort to blog for a month for that? Well maybe some of you but definitely not me.
Whats worse? you break your god weap when you ancient and there goes 1 month of hard work down the drain :) so, if you really wanna change it to +9 god weap, prepare for junk blogs.
Well, i audaciously say i deserve a 72dmg/32map +9 Ancient Weap as i really put in my 101% into my blog and if you think blogging is easy, think again. Everyday i hafta rack my brains for new topics to write on, i go in-game find and create nice screenies and then edit it and again with research and readings i try to conjure up my masterpiece.
If you think im being haughty, proud and disrespectful, sorry to say i wouldnt be saying this if i do not have confidence and backup. :D
Alright enough bout the sad and controversies already, lets move on to the bright side of life. Writing is an enjoyment to me and i win all writing competitions held even in the old SD where i won all 3 Destiny Stories Untold Events either 1st or 2nd place. For those SD mates you would get what i mean.
This game has allowed me to meet many many friends globally and the management team is really competent. I enjoyed most of the events created and have had great fun since 19 April 2008.
Sorry i cant possibly mention all the names out but you guys know who you are. Really thank you guys if you have talked to me, pk-ed me, and what not, you guys are part of my Destiny here in WYD Global. However, one really deserve to be singled out.
CM Dhar is really an important figure in WYD now and as well as the rest of the CM team whether you are behind the stage doing technical stuff or paper works, you guys rock really.
Since the introduction of CMs i think around 6 August 2008, gaming has never been better. CMs will always be there to create the mood and mingle around with you guys. They organize and brainstorm events every month to cater to players who dont just wanna do pure grinding in game.
CM Dhar was more of just a CM to player relationship to me, we kinda develop into friends as we speak mainly about events and feelings. Perhaps it was his job well done that i feel this way as thats what a Community Manager is supposed to do; mingle with the community and make them feel happy and welcomed. Well Dhar im sure you're doing a fantastic job.
Even tho i left this game perhaps maybe we could still keep in touch either via your blogsite, friendster or even my email which i sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (new email for events and community questions to the CMs)
I'm really proud and satisfied of what i am today ingame and even tho im just a puny lv 312 newb God Hunter, i truly enjoyed the process of getting my perfect E grade set with Anct PD God Bow together on a lv 71 Fenrir. With high potential of getting a +10 set of God Armors perfect stats if i stay on.
I achieved all this without spending a single cent and i nurtured it from level 1 with my old hands. I didnt share accounts, didnt trade accounts and didnt use spirit seals to get a Celestial to where i am now. Therefore i feel all the more contented.
However i invested lotsa time as i spend at least 15 hours (WTF? i know LOL) ever since i started my holidays when im not going out. Of cos the 15 hours were not just pure grinding etc but also chatting with the wonderful community we have there. I even continued blogging when i have my final and major exams and on the 15 Sept i would get my results.
Dont know if i will flunk any, but really bear in mind, i spend lotsa effort in this blog event and i feel i truly deserve it (:
Last look of Coolio
Alright i really loved this event and i really treasure the process of my Destiny in this game but i'm leaving now, particially because im gonna serve National Service (aka Army) soon for 2 years so i cant game much anyway.
My account has been passed (lol go figure) to one of my bestest mate since SD and so will all my sub accounts too. Hes matured and wont tarnish my reputation but do take note it aint the Royal Coolness anymore.
Alright adios amigos. Peace out.
For the final time,
Your Royal Coolness,

Welcome to my life.
His comments matched my aim perfectly. Magazines come in different kinds, but i guess mine was more of the Entertainment and Variety kind; ironically i rarely read magazines haha.
So expect more constant variety and entertaining content here at my blog.
Secondly, i'm gonna try my hands on stuff i already touched, but did not majorly cover on. Something that could get me far ahead and would welcome lotsa commotion. It starts with C, no prizes got getting it right tho lol.
Yes, i'm gonna try my hands at trying to make Comic Strips too, or maybe even Cartoon drawings. So stick around if you want more of that (:
Thirdly, you guys are in for something really really different. How different you would ask. You guys ever heard of Vlog? It means video logging, meaning you blog with a video instead of writing words. I'm gonna try my hands on it i hope it'll go smooth cos i dont know if my handphone-taken video will be too big to upload. >_<
No, not purely only on what is going on in-game but also you get to see more of me; in the flesh. Haha. Lol i've been notified many times by CM Dhar that my face will be visible and available to all WYD players as it will be posted up on the site.
But i am ready. Lol. Perhaps many of you are wondering how Coolio really looks like in reality. Therefore i decided to post a picture of myself right here to let you readers have a brief idea of how i look like before i scare you guys with my video lol.
Narcissism aint a crime. :P
Hehe hope i didnt scare you guys off. Fourthly, expect more rewarding activities organized by me. I organized a trivia in my blog in Season 1 which sadly only 1 person took part that is my bud MSTR-FOEMA. haha. I gave away my daily award of 3 Laks to him.
So i hope more people will participate in my activities in Season 2. Ideas are gushing through my mind and some of these activities are going to be held in-game so if you see me spamming like a madman, why not head down and join my games and of cos, there will be rewards :D
If you missed them, dont worry i'll blog bout it and give you guys a brief idea of what has happened.
Thrilled enough i hope? haha. So this is a brief summary of what to expect right here. Hope it makes you interested and remember to check back tomorrow for a new entry! (:

If youre sick of Coolio's wordy entries and cant be bothered reading, today's post is just for you! full of Pictures :D
Anyways Academy League Results for Day 2.
- Beginner Division: Malaysia Academy
- Advance Division: Malaysia Academy
- Hardcore Division: Malaysia Academy
- OP Division: Germany Academy
No, your eyes arent playing tricks with you. Its a Malaysia Hat Trick. HAHAHA lol. Malaysia has too much in numbers so much so they fill almost half the Armia Arena.
There were so many Lalaland members it scares me, of cos no prize for guessing it all started with -Carbuncle- the Lalaland Princess. Lol. Finally i broke free from the evil Lalaland.
Picture a man who escaped from a Mall of Living Zombies in the twilight sky.
There was Guild War today and battle for Armia S1 where taxes are tempting and rewarding. However there was a man called Balmus, the tax keeper who was spamming non-stop!
I tried to contact Alia to help me teach this broke a lesson, alas, he aint online :( LOL. So pissed off with his spamming, i tried to do all i could to shut his gap.
Yes i tried all methods, from begging him to STFU to giving him a super KUNGFU KICK! but it all went to nought as he still spams like an arse. ARGHHHH really driving me crazy!
Even Balmus is affected by today's GW for taxes!
Left with Hudson's choice, you know what they always say. "If you cant beat them, join them" LOL. So i became Balmus II lol, in the sub conscious mind i heard myself spamming too. OMG!
What a fun-filled day and i hope you enjoyed it as much i did. I dont know who won Armia but we'll find out in tomorrow's post wont we? (:
Stick around then! :D
Your Royal Coolness,

So it was Friday's Academy League and an event i look forward to join and fight for our academies. One of the best ingame event i would say.
Btw if youre curious for results here you go.
- Beginner: Singapore Academy
- Advance: Malaysia Academy
- Hardcore: Malaysia Academy
- OP League: HongKong Academy
And GM Helius was riding a Fire Tiger, a God Mount and boy was it a drop-dead gorgeous sight! Think it could be level 120 or something. Back in SD it was called Kirin. Again, due to the chaotic spamming of "GM Summon me please i could not take a decent screenie. lol.
Thursday, September 4, 2008
Met up with CM Aruman over the incident and boy was he a really nice and suportive CM. He was the one who took over Archimaster as the hippest and most fashionable WYDian alive. Lol if you refer to this entry you know more.
Now boosted with two Giantic tree logs as his weapons, speak an ill-advised word and you'd be bashed to death lol.
Yes a friend who i recommended to bout WYD Journal, i always share good stuff with my friends. SultanJohor was my guildmate from Malaysia Academy and we had much fun and he often gave tips to make a good TK. Since, he has moved on to become OP of Global Academy and i wish him success :D
SultanJohor's weblog holds many of his funny thinking and his love for Transknight and gore. Edited pictures like him holding a +11 Ancient Machine Gun never fails to tickle me LOL. Tho he entered late he still managed to win the grand prize kudos to you Apis bro. :)
Puppy's Lair, one of the most unrelated names to WYD but still packs a punch about WYD. He was MIA most of the time but his entries tho short, were entertaining. Entries like his suggestions for Olympics sports in WYD and useless items sold in WYD really made me chuckle.
wickedness is a foema and is a fan of the black foema as her blog name suggests. Not a very close friend and i have not the chance to speak to him at all. Hope to look forward to meeting u in game. (:
the blog was helpful and in his recent post, he showed a kind gesture by showing how the disqualified bloggers how to add stuff in their blogroll or bloglist. Now, aint that sweet?
Alia, someone in Shield guild which i barely had the chance to talk to. Even tho i tried talking to him in-game he just seemed so busy lol.
In and Out of the Game is his blog's name and he is famous for his motivational posters which has some really creative work. Then he made a gore-filled (Im sure u love it SultanJohor hehe) comic about the tax saga.
newbcaKe is not really a newb, hehe he merely uses the hunter for this event from what i know. till now his main character remains a mystery and i hope we have the chance to converse in-game my friend. (:
Newbcake's Nooblog is a blog full of comic strips and is really entertaining. If you have a tiring day of just wanna relax and not think too much, check this blog out for a laugh. Recently he posted a post on how to photoshop with GIMP. Tho i tried it out im still really newb at using it. hehe.
And that sums up the past 10 winners of Season 1 and now Season 2 has been trimmed down to only 5 monthly weapons! How challenging and tight the race will be now.
Oh and btw, special thanks to SuperHighMe my guildmate for selling me a Removal Enamel that removed the red in my breastplate. Now i look gorgeous and heres a screenie to prove that. :P
I thought i saw a coin lying around here somewhere...
Alright its time for me to tackle the second weekly topic and i have something to work on but im not sure if it would work out. Curious? Stay tuned here at Old School's Cooldude! :D
Your Royal Coolness,

Looking back on the things i've done,
i was trying to be someone.
i played my part,
and left you in the dark.
now let you show you the shape of my heart. <3
Shape of my Heart - BackStreet Boys.
Told you it'd be a week of reflecting on Season 1. Season 1 lasted one whole month, surely it could not be that easy to forget it totally? Season 1's prizes overall paled in comparison with Season 2's. So i shall dedicate this 1 week to the poor o underrated Season 1. (:
Season 1 was supposed to have only 3 winners. However due to increasing amount of quality entries, the WYD team has increased to 10. Imho, 5 would be sufficient and 10 too many, and might spoil the balance and economy of the game. However i believe in CMs' decision and they shall have the final say.
I shall go over my opinions of the first 5 winners not in any specific order but according to the post in the CM Lair. Links are provided so feel free to click and visit their blogs :)
Lol. Hope you enjoy my work. Thanks for the support :D

Guess who's back...
Firstly, a big WELCOME to my faithful readers lol. During the past 5 days tho i havent been posting, still my blog counter went up. My poll showed that 7 readers were here on a daily basis and 2 were not. Thank you guys for all the support you've shown, i really appreciate it deeply.
Yes i took a hiatus a day before Season 1 ended, but fret not this hiatus will not last, cos im back! :D
So, before i officially start, lemme give u a slight flashback to 7th August 08 when i first started this blog. I had my qualms about starting a blog as you can read on the 8th August 08.
After that, with the words of encouragement from fellow WYDians and nice CMs, the next 20 posts all come to place naturally. You see, i was a newb at blogging. I didnt know how to add a counter to my blog, didnt know the features well and all i did was to meddle around and try my luck.
Old School Cooldude! is my first ever blog and boy has it been a wonderful experience. I learnt a couple of things and it has been summarised to these few points.
I have learnt...
- to dare to try out new things and not fret over the outcome too much; thus creating this blog.
- to utilize my creative brain juices to entertain my readers with trivia contests, creative unedited screenies and some food for thought.
- to manage my time better for gaming, blogging, studies and my lifestyle as well; thus you see my 22 consecutive winning entries in a row.
- to interact better with my readers and fellow WYDians as they mentioned they could easily relate and my entries kept them entertained.
- to improve my already huge liking for writing and connect to people's mind and hearts.
- Well, thats all i could think of for now. hehehehh.
Alright am gonna hand out a tip for you to be successful in blogging. You ready?
Yes, releasing your inner soul and let go with the flow. Thats what i did to get what i gotten today. Let the unidentified inner self show itself and you'd be amazed by it.
Be original and not plagarize your entries. Copying + Pasting won't win you the daily prizes. Blog bout what you hafta say bout something and start inducing your readers. Of cos, you gotta be careful about their feelings and not flame others or write stuff that might offend your readers.
I always believe in consistency coupled with variety, they might contradict each other in a way but if done well, will cater to many of your audience.
Therefore some entries i wrote novel-like stuff like Coolio's Adventures.
Informative and sometimes helpful posts like the Academy League.
Entries that combine real-life and in-game like the Beijing Olympics 2008 fever.
Pictorial and colourful entries like Meeting My Other Half of Me.
And many many more.
This could be a winning formula, i feel. Thereafter i received a comment from CM Dhar that i truly agree upon which will be covered next post. :D
Alright enough bout my personal opinions and stuff i've learnt. Let me highlight some major happenings during my 5 day hiatus.
So it was the official end of Season 1 and i am honoured to be one of the 10 who won the grand prize of an ancient god weapon of our choice. Im a hunter and therefore i picked a PD 63dmg Isis if youre wondering what i chose.
CM Dhar was very thoughtful and appeared ingame to congratulate the winners "personally" (well behind the monitor but oh well whatever LOL). So i took my +9 statless Isis and with the Hunter's skill, Illusion, i teleported next to CM Dhar and held her hostage! WAHAHAHAHAHHHAHA. :D
SultanJohor and claire were there too when CM Dhar was kidnapped but they were too happy to help free her LOL. So i suggest we took a screenie together! Was such a joyous occasion that i really felt my hard work and efforts paid off well.
