After a server-breaking Beta Test, Cabal Mobile is finally live!


Cabal Mobile: Heroes of Nevareth, the much-awaited mobile version of the beloved MMORPG franchise, is now live for the Philippines and Vietnam. Still beaming from a successful and server-breaking Closed Beta Test (CBT), gamers and mobile gaming enthusiasts can now download and play the full version of the game on their Android and iOS devices.

During CBT, over 542,000 mobile game enthusiasts rushed to try and enjoy the game, during the limited testing period. The overwhelming support from fans needed a second server to handle the load and prevent the initial CBT server from crashing.

With more than 45,000 concurrent players storming the gates of Nevareth in the opening minutes of the official launch, Cabal Mobile has proved its strong presence in the hearts of gamers throughout the years.

To celebrate the game’s release, the Cabal Mobile Team has organized Livestream events featuring well-known streamers and content creators to join players as they make their way once again to the land of Nevareth. The Cabal Mobile Charity Stream aims to raise funds for the benefit of the Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation Inc. and other charity partners to support our country’s fight against Covid19.

As one of the biggest MMORPGs in the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries, the Cabal franchise aims to provide the gaming community with a blend of unique combat mechanics, an assortment of character classes, and diverse PvP modes to maximize the enjoyment and competitive spirit of  MMORPG aficionados.

Mobile MMORPG enthusiasts can expect fast-paced, skill-based combat from Cabal Mobile, and can make use of the Combo mechanic system to increase damage to enemies. This unique game mechanic adds another layer of complexity when combined with the different classes in the game, and is now optimized for mobile smartphone touchscreens.

To satisfy the competitive nature of Cabal fans and gamers in general, the Nevareth League 2021 tournament is coming soon, featuring the biggest prize pool for a mobile MMORPG in the Philippines and Vietnam. With 1v1, Team Deathmatch, and 5v5 modes, players of different disciplines and backgrounds will have an arena to showcase their perfectly honed skills in Cabal Mobile. Watch out for more announcements in the coming days.

Conquer the Battlefield with Seven Superior Gaming Boosts from the latest #OPPOReno6 Series

Every Filipino gamer knows that mobile gaming, whether it’s a friendly match-up or a full-blown tournament, requires handsets with the best capabilities since speed and focus are key. Your reaction speed and reflexes are crucial to get an upper hand against opponents so it is essential to have a gaming device that not only complements your strategies, but also prevents annoying distractions, pop-ups, and technical slowdowns.

OPPO’s newest innovation, the Reno6 Series, is designed with a flurry of gaming features that will help unleash the champion in you. Fasten your seatbelts and gear up for the best mobile gaming experience ever with these powerful features!

Fast Forward into the Game

OPPO Ambassador Gloco Gaming shared that one of his pet peeves is the waiting time at the start of every game. “I’m sure everyone can relate to the feeling when you’re so excited to play, especially with your friends, but it literally takes a while for the game to load. So when I’m looking for my gaming device, I really prefer one that allows me to skip through the trailers and head on straight to the game itself,” Gloco said.

OPPO has created a specialized mode just for this, called Quick Startup! Available on selected games, this mode intelligently analyzes the game and fast forwards through the loading screen, studio logo, healthy game advice, and advertisements - getting you right back in the game without wasting precious time!

Feel the Pain, Feel the Gain

Unlike a Dualshock controller, most mobile games only trigger standard vibrations, due to the basic vibration motors found in most phones. Eric “Eruption” Tai shared, “When you play a game on your mobile phone for the first time, you still feel excited and you even find yourself surprised when there’s actual vibration. But sadly, overtime it becomes more superficial, and eventually uncomfortable so you just turn it off.”

The Reno6 Series comes with a specialized Z and X axis motor, which can produce extremely minute and specialized vibration waveforms – 4D vibration! This allows you to feel all the different effects of a game, for instance, an immersive-feeling ‘hit’ to your hands if you get shot in PUBG. Don’t just play the game - feel the game!

90Hz of Pure Fluidity

For Ashley Gosiengfiao, what makes a game extra enjoyable is the smooth game display. Most screen refresh rates (number of times a new image is drawn on the screen) are capped at 60Hz and this is okay for movies, but not really ideal for games. Ashley shared, “The best display is key to appreciating the overall aesthetic of any game. But for games like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), low refresh rates sometimes cause screen tears for other devices, which can lead to headaches after long periods of gameplay.”

This is where the Reno6 Series shines. With a refresh rate of 90Hz, everything just looks smoother. Animations execute flawlessly and playing action games will be a breeze from now on. Never suffer distortion and keep yourself aligned!

Bring the Game into Focus - Literally

Every gamer knows that when it comes to battle, you need laser focus. The same goes for one of the members of Philippine Champs Blacklist International. “What shakes off our focus in the middle of a game is when we’re about to launch a crucial attack, annoying pop-up notifications suddenly appear on our screens. Of course, we would try to swipe them away, but what happens at times is that the phone misinterprets it as a tap and exits our game,” shared ohmyV33nus.

Never again, with the Reno6 Series’ Game Focus Mode. Innovatively designed by OPPO, this mode locks your phone down to nothing but your game, leaving you to focus only on your moves - nothing more, nothing less.

Keep Your Head High, Keep Your Ping Low

The Reno6 Series is equipped with 5G modems. 5G, a technology which offers internet speeds almost double that of 4G, will ensure that you have stable and worry-free connection, especially during the heat of battle or in the last few minutes of a MLBB match as the circle closes in on you.

Gone are the days of lag and high latency. Keep your ping ultra-low as you march your way into victory!

Push Your Phone to the Max

For Liyab Esports member MoraytaBoy, storage is vital to their gaming device. He explained, “Competitive mobile games usually challenge the capabilities of any phone because they eat up significant amounts of RAM, CPU and GPU cycles. With increased power draw and temperature, phones just heat up and the battery drains a lot faster than usual.”

Hyperboost 4.0, a special technology exclusive to OPPO, balances your power consumption and temperature while intelligently maintaining your game performance and framerate, allowing you to push your phone to the max! This works especially well on long sessions whether it’s just one game all throughout or multiple titles in succession.

Power Up for Your Next Game

All of OPPO’s Ambassadors agree that playing games on a mobile device for extended periods of time inevitably drains battery levels. While plugging a cable in may solve the problem, it can be counterintuitive for their hands just like other gamers since they are holding their phones in landscape mode.

Cue in SuperVOOC 2.0, OPPO’s proprietary technology which can charge your phone from 0-100 in slightly over half an hour. Finish the round, plug the phone in, grab a drink, and come back for the next one. Game on and push yourself into Elo Heaven!

The Reno6 Series is expertly designed to have truly innovative gaming capabilities. Own one now and you will never feel the pain of a slow device, not just for gaming, but for everything else, too.

OPPO Reno6 Z 5G is now officially available in the Philippines via OPPO Brand and online stores nationwide, partner dealers, Shopee, and Lazada for only PHP19,999. While OPPO Reno6 5G will be available starting August 28 via aforementioned sales channels for only PHP26,999.

Huawei sees bright future for Thomasian scholars


Huawei Philippines organized a virtual event to warmly welcome its first batch of scholars from the University of Santo Tomas (UST), the oldest existing university in Asia.

Thomasian students Hermil Gerard Calasang, Jia Anette Phi, Kryzha Lei Aguilar, Maricar Auditor and Matthew Gabriel Rabanes joined the Huawei family as scholars with a bright future ahead of them.

In her speech, Dean Jerralyn Padua of the UST College of Information and Computing Sciences shared how the pandemic has affected all families in terms of their financial capabilities to support the education of their children. "This opportunity given by the Huawei team is really very helpful for them to be able to continue their education despite the current situation in the country."

Dr. Angelo Dela Cruz, Dean of College of Engineering, considered the scholarship program as "very timely" given the financial difficulties faced by many students amid the pandemic. "Actually, I have just received at least 20 promissory notes last week during our enrollment. We hope the scholarship program will be the beginning of many more activities and programs between Huawei and UST that will ultimately benefit our students."

Prof. Cheryl Peralta, Vice Rector for Academic Affairs, said the program is "a great blessing and a beacon of hope in this very challenging time." "We believe that effective and productive collaborations help enrich the experience of students and university staff and allow them to do their best in the Now Normal, not only to survive but to thrive in the new opportunities brought about by the rapidly changing world of technology."

Meanwhile, Asst. Prof. Maria Cecilia Tio Cuison, Director of the Office of Student Affairs, expressed her gratitude to Huawei for the opportunity to help Thomasian students realize their dreams. "We owe it to you as a solid partner in the educative mission. You have widened our doors for far-reaching opportunities that pave the way for us to fulfill our envisioned goals, especially to sustain our strong linkage with the industry to expand educational opportunities," Tio Cuison added.

For his part, Huawei Philippines Human Resources Director Peter Zhang congratulated the five scholars, saying they are bound for great things and that they play a key role in helping the society through ICT. Zhang also thanked UST for the partnership: "We look forward to having a continuous cooperation with UST in the coming years and supporting more deserving students as well as the talent ecosystem for the ICT industry."

The scholars are in their fourth and final year in their respective programs. With their passion for technology, they hope to continue their education despite hardships, with the goal of starting a career in the ICT industry soon and being one of those who drive innovation in the country.

At present, Huawei Philippines has 19 scholars from local universities. As a company that values education and talents, Huawei Philippines has been partnering with local universities and colleges to support Filipino students in various ways and help them achieve their aspirations. Huawei advocates for Education4All by providing educational institutions with digital skills workshops and scholarships, among other initiatives.
