Please give us your ideas in order to enlarge our community in this part of the world. We would also like you to help us identify new payment providers, potential communication partners (game websites, blogs, ...)
We are also looking for motivated players who could help us getting Urban Rivals known (by presenting the game in blogs for instance).
Im not sure if making a tagalog version of this game will help. Most filipinos can understand english very well. Knowing how most filipinos from the Philippines would react to a tagalog game on the internet, I would say it would drive away a chunk of the potential new players.
One way to get more filipinos into this game is by making a partnership with one of the big online gaming companies here in the Philippines, those companies has a huge crowd already playing their games, and has the resources to advertise nationwide. Those companies are:
Level Up Games PH - http://www.levelupgames.ph/
Mobius Online - http://www.mobiusgames.net/
E-games Philippines - http://portal.e-games.com.ph/
Out of the 3, I would say Levelup games is the best choice, their top-up cards are the easiest to find and they have the best track record.
@bazookajoe: I understand that Filipinos can speak/understand english quite well but building a filipino forums will create this sense of community amongst us. As it stands, there is no sense of togetherness from what I can see as a lot of filipinos are scattered in the english communtiy rather than working together to promote our own community
I dont get it...why Asia only means Philipines,Sinagapore,Malaysia or other south eastern countries to the admins?thers many other countries in Asia which is still missing from the country list.suppose Bangladesh.ya,its a small country,but its much bigger than Nepal(on the list),and got a population about 140 milion.so why its skipped?we cant represent our country,instead we have carry a world flag,which means nothing.morever we also cant buy credits from this part of the world.if this problem is solved,UR fans in this side will increase greatly.
