Seoul, Korea – February 18th, 2010 – Zemi Interactive’s Free to play MMORPG 4Story’s (www.global.4story.com) Rock-Paper-Scissors Machine is whole loads of fun and popular amongst the players. The game works like this. First, a player must buy the item called crystals from an NPC. They are divided into low, medium, and high levels. The level meaning for the crystals itself and the Rock Paper Scissors machine is not the player levels. The crystals are somewhat like tokens for the Rock Paper Scissors machine. There are 3 different machines (low, medium, and high level machines) and the higher the level of the machine the harder and more rewarding the gift will be if a player wins. The machines are all around the major cities and starting villages.

This allows for the players to interact within each other within the starting zones and major cities making the community more live. Also gives them something to do when they are tired out from killing monsters, leveling up, or PvP-ing with other players. This is a great way to meet other players, a great way to kill time, and great way to get great rewards. All gamers are being invited and Zemi is waiting all to come and join the fun in the continent of Iveria, in the fantasy world of 4STORY.

Woo, three breasts three times fun! Oops, sorry, this news is about the interesting “Lucky 3s Event” in Dragon’s Call, while this photo was submitted by a player for this event. This enticing event aroused many players’ creativity. It was held before the Dragon’s Call Server 3 was launched and surely had brought luck to this new server. The daily new registration once reached over 10k during the first week after launch.

“We didn’t expect that the players were so excited and rushed in, so our Server 4’s launch was pretty like an emergency.” said Torrez, the Chief Marketing Officer, “But it is definitely more stable than Server 3 still. And the Server 5 is a branch server that we’d like to use to split out the Asian players, so that both players in NA and SEA have their own regional server to play.”

Before I keep my mouth shut and let you enjoy those funny photos in the “Lucky 3s Event”, one more leaked out info from the official that might interest you – server 1 and server 2 might possibly be going to merge soon. So for those players and guilds on the two servers, get ready for a larger battle on Stilland!

Seoul, Korea – February 11th, 2010 – Zemi Interactive’s 4Story Team (www.global.4story.com) has been running events after events, always trying to come up with new ideas for fun activities for the players to experience in-game.

What is most intriguing and unique about 4Story Events are that most of the time it is run by GMs, and players can see and interact with the GMs in game, making the community more lively and user friendly. There has been many different variety of events has been running throughout 4Story. Events like, racing events, quiz and trivia events, PvP 1 vs 1, 3 vs 3, or even 7 vs 7. However, the most exciting events can be the events where GMs actually participates in the event themselves, for instance there was an event called “GM Killer” Event, giving the players a chance to kill the GM to get rewards or “Hit the GM” giving gifts to players who has the highest damage point hitting the GMs. Events like “Who is the Spy?” event also had gotten lots of interests from players, making the players finding the GM in the opposing faction’s City, and lots more!

Aside from the Events that is run by the GMs and daily and weekly events, the 4Story Team also accepts player ideas for events as well. In the 4Story forums there is a section for players to send in their own ideas for events giving Zemi Inc. fresh new ideas and at the same time giving the players satisfactory experience within the game.

Currently the events within the game just got better, ever since the Broa update, the final 3rd faction that everyone has been waiting for. Since Broa kingdom is neutral grounds, both players from the opposing factions Defugel and Craxion can participate in the events together. The best part about the events are everyone has a chance to win something, and It’s level friendly, so even the low level players and new players have a chance to win. Also, since GMs are personally attending to the events new players have a higher chance to know what is going on in-game, getting tips and helps from the GMs on how the events are held and how it is proceeded.

So with 4Story’s endless events with endless rewards the game itself makes it more interesting for players letting them having something to do rather than the contents that is already implemented in the game. Also very user friendly giving all level players a chance to win, not to mention further improving the in-game community allowing players to interact with the GMs and of different factions within Broa. With many different types of events being held and giving players rewards for doing them has

heighten the 4Story community.
