The latest dungeon to arrive in CabalSEA is a force not to be taken lightly of. A party based dungeon for Level 155 and above, the Tower of the Undead B3f is a race against time. Some of the strongest bosses lurk in the dark crevices of this dungeon, waiting to kill intruders in their way and players will need superb teamwork to eliminate them in order to progress.
Given with a time limit of ten minutes upon entry, the party will have to fight against a total of six bosses in the dungeon in order to conquer it, and each eliminated boss will earn them bonus time. Successful parties can look forward to attractive item drops such as new armor sets, new weapons and this extremely rare mount – Astral Bike. These new drops are also exclusive to the dungeon!
The Astral Bike can be upgraded to improve its performance, but being the highest grade among all in Cabal, it rightfully deserves the best resources for its upgrades. It is also an additional storage option for the savvy, and with its impressive design, players will definitely be the envy and the centre of attraction everywhere. Watch out for CabalSEA GMs as they may just zoom into towns on the Astral Bike. To find out when to catch a close-up glimpse with the GMs, visit http://www.CabalSEA.com for more details.
Players can also interact and battle alongside CabalSEA GMs in the new Tower of the Undead B3f by signing up for the Fastest Dungeon Run in-game event.

Last but not the least, new skills await selected classes while adjustments have also been made to other skills to improve the overall gameplay experience.
07 Feb 13: Pieces of Love embrace AuditionSEA in this Season of Romance!

7 February 2013, Singapore and Malaysia – In the month of February where declarations of love and affection, coupled with gift tokens to signify their commitment, takes centrestage all around the world, one cannot help but be surrounded by the air of romance. This is especially so in AuditionSEA, the free-to-play massively multiplayer online dancing game, as it launches the new “Jigsaw Room” mini-game for all AuditionSEA couples today.
The new Jigsaw Room is accessible through the Couple Garden in AuditionSEA and Puzzle Boxes to activate the mini-game can be purchased from the Couple Shop within the game. This is an opportunity for couples to strengthen their relationship by completing jigsaw puzzles together and in return for their efforts, receive attractive in-game rewards.
The jigsaw puzzles come in three different sizes and pieces for the jigsaw puzzle can be obtained as random drops when couples harvest the flowers in their Couple Garden. Hence, if couples have been neglecting their garden, now is the good time for them to spend more time together and rekindle their affection in their Couple Garden.
AuditionSEA has been the hangout place for many of its fans to find great friends and for some, their better halves, as most strut those nifty dance moves in their best fashion attire. Many players will also flock to popular modes such as Club Dance, Boys & Girls and Ballroom Dance, with hopes of finding that special someone while they dance or waltz their way to the top couple in that session.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, many single clubbers may be keen to find someone to celebrate this special occasion with in AuditionSEA, and to finally experience the beauty of the exclusive couple features in the game. Therefore, they will be pleased to know that AuditionSEA will be running a matchmaking event in the month of February, to help these singles connect with other similar individuals within the game. They will need to submit entries of their name, and other required details for AuditionSEA to participate in this session.
Then on 14 February 2013, AuditionSEA GM will conduct a compatibility match and run the event. Winners of this event who becomes a couple eventually and completes the wedding licence within two weeks will be handsomely rewarded with exclusive couple avatars and accessories, and not forgetting the slew of special couple features they get to enjoy as well.
Celebrity GM Couple, GM Wasabi and GM FrenchFry will also be present on 14 February to celebrate the special occasion and perhaps players could invite them to be witnesses to their wedding parties upon successful matchmaking.
“This will be a very exciting Valentine’s Day for us as we can’t wait to complete the first jigsaw puzzle together, except that the question now for us is, which puzzle to start on.”, quips GMFrenchFry. “I haven’t been contributing much to our garden, so for this Valentine’s Day, I’ll roll up my sleeves and harvest some flowers to get the pieces, but that will have to wait after we have finished our duties at the matchmaking party on Valentine’s Day” adds GMWasabi.
AuditionSEA clubbers can also look forward to many other exciting activities during this season of love by visiting AuditionSEA’s website at www.AuditionSEA.com or the Facebook Fan Page at www.facebook.com/AuditionSEA.
06 Feb 13: New Class in MapleSEA: Mihile – The Knight Command of Light!
MapleSEA to celebrate Chinese New Year with an On-Ground event in Singapore
6 February 2013, Singapore and Malaysia - Mihile is the latest warrior class to join the ranks of all other mighty classes of MapleSEA! Many would not be unfamiliar with him as he is a Knight Commander for Empress Cygnus, and players can now have first hand experience of how he rose to that key position.
Mihile was once an overworked stock boy for Mr Limbert’s General Store known as “kiddo”. Little did he knew that Empress Cygnus saw something more in him, and together with her trusted aide, Nineheart, tested him and witnessed the power he has within.
This nameless little “kiddo” then found out from Empress Cygnus that his father was a warrior of great power, a warrior for good and light, and was thus named Mihile, in honor of his fallen father, Chromile. Mihile returned to Ereve with Empress Cygnus and Nineheart and his true calling as the Knight of Light began.
Players can now live the life of Mihile and experience his journey to become a Knight Commander of Light, following in the footsteps of his father. Mihile is melee warrior well-versed in one-handed swords and uses a special growth light shield called the Soul Shield. It also has high mobility which is essential during battles against enemies.
