I’ve been receiving a lot of questions and requests about when Philippine Ragnarok Online will finally join almost all the MMORPGs here and go Free to Play.

Players have been asking, our sales people have been bugging me and even people here at the office have pointed this to me a lot of times.

And yes, there ARE rumors out there about pRO going F2P. This post is both a “yes and a no” and hopefully, clarify everything at the end of the day.

Let me give you an inside scoop about the top secret “Valkyrie Project”.

It’s undeniable. There really is a huge secondary market (read: RMT or Real Money Trading) in the online gaming industry. I have heard stories about huge amounts of money being spent for in-game items here and abroad.

MMOs to Replace Singles Bars?

In my job, it’s normal to hear reports and stories about players trying to pick-up other players inside the game. It’s natural - boy meets girl in-game and then wants to see each other iRL (in Real Life). There are risks of course, such running into a female avatar being played by a boy

But risks or not, this still keeps on happening. In fact, if we skip to the good side of the fence, I am witness to a lot of marriages and relationships which wouldn’t have happened if it were not for the game. Case in point is a wedding founded on RF Online which I wrote about a couple of weeks ago.

In any case, I think that online games and MMORPGs are just one of the many means to find true love. Eversince the Internet gods gave us chat and friendster, the opposite sex is on the lookout for an avenue to replace the singles bar.
