^ ‘Elsword’ 5th anniversary party was held at Seoul Chung-dam-dong in Song-Un art space

‘Elsword’, a game Developed by KOG and produced by Nexon, held a user event in anniversary of its 5th year service today (December 8).  Many different Elsword related events caught the attention of around 200 ‘VIP attendees’ and hot-blooded users that attended the party.

KOG’s development team Gun-Ho-Juung that was present at the party expressed his thoughts by saying “Although Elsword wasn’t a very popular game from the launch.  We were able to continue our services for 5 years so far by providing materials to be enjoyed by users constantly and also with lots of love and support from the users. Although there are parts in the game that aren’t satisfactory yet, I want to work hard so the game users wouldn’t feel lonely.”

‘Elsword’ isn’t a well known game and if you had to describe the game with just one word, you could say that it is a ‘Bizarre’ game. Bizarrely there are large amount of female users despite the key characteristics of this game being a zesty ‘Action’ that is filled with KOG’s unique sense and know-how.  Even today’s birthday party felt diverse from other game events due to the fact that male and female user ratios attending the party were roughly 50%.

On this topic dev. team Gun-Ho-Daang explained it like this. First of all, Elsword is a game mainly targeted towards users that are minors(less than 18 year old). Our action sequences are focus on flashy visual effects and are great at catching the interest of many male users.  ‘fast paced competition that is centered on quick reaction speed is really fun’  ‘Hero’s Tournament’ today receiving enormous audience response stands true to this statement.

< KOG ‘Elsword’ Development Team Gun-Ho-Daang

Opposite from this, the ‘Pretty Characters’ of ‘Elsword’ became the driving force for the female user populations. This is not just a result of ‘Pretty Characters’ but the result of heartwarming artwork that leaves an impression on the female users. Adding to this popularity, there are abundant aesthetic contents like clothes and accessories that are available in-game which users can decorate their characters with.  Fact that there were female users cosplaying in today’s  event and the fact that the fanart gallery being catching lots of attention supports this.



For ‘Elsword’ that’s been bizarrely gaining popularity, today’s event was a very loud one. Because there were lots of female users even a simple quiz events had many explosive responses and the heated ‘Hero’s Tournament’ competition held by the male users were so filled with reactions and cheers that it resembled the past ‘Starcraft’ tournament finals. In addition, promotion models APink attended the event site for the finale creating a thrilling atmosphere as the event ended.

Today’s event revealed for the first time Elsword’s 7th character ‘Ara Han’, which is planned for implementation in December 20th followed by stages of ‘Winter updates’.

Pet Personality Guide

July 31st, 2012 | Posted by 2nafishisgood in Guides - (0 Comments)

Babel has begun its ambitious translation project of the guides from some of the top pros in Korea.  We begin by introducing a Pet Personality Guide from 행운의2달러, the top Void Princess in Korea. We specifically begun with this guide as it is quite appealing to all audiences, and as it is information that has never been introduced in North America before. One of the strengths that Korea has over North America is that its players really understand how to test in-game ideas and develop new techniques: we will endeavor to bring these techniques to NA through their guides.

These guides can also be found in the new “Guides” section. Keep your eyes peeled for more!
