I logged in to my ym account just now and saw primedefender's stat message with a link. I click that link and it lead me to the manila bulletin's website that contain's his article on "The joys of Playing ROSE Online" and I can see in full detail all the good stuff about pROSE, especially the hyperactive community.
It made me think that during the past few months of play in pROSE, I never expected that this small community has done something big, and that is to make a beautiful and hyperactive community out of a game that, some players think is too dull or too boring...
As in it made me think that many of us became active and became helpful to each other, supporting one another and at time compete with one another in friendly competition. I am also awed by primedefender's remarks about LD, there was no foul play, no cheats, just pure sportmanship and competition.
In short, as contrast to what pROSE's "critics" would say, I think pROSE really has a bright future. Despite all the problems, both in game and IRL, I do think that pROSE will really affect our lives, whether directly or indirectly, because, "though the ROSE Online community is small (compared to its elder brother, Ragnarok), we, the players, could definitely do something big." A quote from Ed Gimenez (a.k.a. Montoya), the GCM of UCP.

And primedefender, from the bottom of my heart, thanks. You just made an beautiful statement about pROSE amidst all that criticism. You, really do deserve the name "primedefender". Kudos to thee, Pao Pena (Primedefender)!
