Joymax Begins Hosting Daily In-Game Events for Silkroad Online

SEOUL - Nov. 19, 2010

Joymax, a developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced that they have begun hosting daily Game Master (GM) events in fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online.

Over the years, Joymax has run a wide variety of GM events in Silkroad Online. Past popular events include the“Finding GM” event, where players hunt down a GM hidden in a given zone with spoils promised for the winner, and“Rise of the Uniques,” an event that features a GM spawning a random creature at will for players to battle. These fan favorites are just two examples of some of the successful GM events Joymax has hosted and a testament to what players can now look forward to all year round. Joymax is also looking to continually support the avid SRO community by providing other fun and exciting events for its users.

“I love seeing the virtual smiles on players’ faces as they run up to me to start an event. I’m glad to help bring in some additional fun for the community,” said Tarky, a popular Game Master in Silkroad Online.“Admittedly, when I see a monster I’ve summoned beat up a whole group of players at once, it does bring a smile to my face as well.”
