One Fine Day?



I want to believe that Pangya Global's time is not up. But the old saying rings true: all good things must come to an end. I recently heard the news that Pangya Korea's server will be closing down in late August, on approximately the Chuseok holiday. But what is not clear is whether or not Global's server will have to change hands or if it will also be shut down as well.



At the time of this live blog, I am convinced that the admins at Smilegate West already got the news from Smilegate Megaport that the Korea server is closing down. Knowing that the players on Global don't want the server to close, he/she is negotiating with GMO, the owners of the Japan server, to come up with an agreement to save the Global server and keep it running. Details and fine print are being ironed out, I would imagine, and something official will be coming in the days ahead.


As a Pangyateer of three years with two accounts, it would be terrible timing to have the Global server shut down. These three years of playing the world's best online golf game have been fun, and I believe that Japan owning Global will allow its content to arrive to an audience hungry for new stuff.

It's definitely a sad day for golfers in Korea, I would imagine. Pangya Korea is where it all started. Alternately, I am a believer in rebirth, and even if Pangya Korea gets shut down, if Pangya Japan is robust and strong in its aims, it will find a way to revive the Korea server some time down the road. As for Thailand, they are not affected either, they will keep going.


Before I received this news, I had knocked down a few achievements, won some new rare items, got a couple of club sets ranked up. I had to come back to the game because of the surrealness of real world events taking shape. I did not think that the bad news would carry over into Pangya. Boy. You talk about changes coming in my life, and this is one of them. I am hopeful that Global's future is safe and that GMO takes over and keeps the server alive.

However, I am ready to see it off if Pangya Global cannot be saved. Steve Jablonsky, send help.

ISML 2016: Madoka Shocks The World, But Comes Up Short

ISML 2016: Madoka Shocks The World, But Comes Up Short

By JR Salazar
The Bedlam on Baltic Avenue
July 23, 2016

When it comes to proving people wrong, no one does it better than Madoka Kaname. A one-time Saimoe Prime Minister of Japan, the concept of hope and the dedicated partner of Homura Akemi delivered a shocking Upset of the Round after Match Day 6 in the 2016 International Saimoe League Aquamarine Period. She defeated Iroha Isshiki 1371-1344, defying the expectations set by the Bedlam on Baltic Avenue and finishing a respectable third. Despite the victory, a huge difference is vote differential means that Isshiki advance to the next round alongside Shirayuki, who defeated Urara Shiraishi 1338-1075.

"I was not sure that I would be able to top the group but to back my way into advancing and finish first after losing is against my precepts," said Isshiki. "I want to move on a winner, not finish first after a loss. Because of this, I am going to head into the next round with a clear conscience and with no set expectations.

"It is not fair that Madoka defeated me and yet she did not advance. I believe there has to be a change to the way this competition is run and return to the format from 2015. This format gave my opponent her first real regular season matches but I felt that she should have gone through in my place.

"At the same time, I also am disappointed with my performance in this match. I see myself as someone that can become consistent and I should have swept my own group. This is a flawed system and I unfortunately benefited from this. I can only hope that I can make up for it by making a deep Tiara run."

In other Female Division results, Shirayuki defeated Urara Shiraishi 1338-1075, Taiga Aisaka roared past Nagisa Furukawa 1445-1153, Kuroko Shirai defeated Kurousagi 1359-1257, Chiyo Sakura routed Kotori Minami 1771-903, Rize Tedeza stormed past Nagi Sanzen'in 1434-1015, Maki Nishikino rolled past Ayase Aragaki 1843-894 and Erina Nakiri delivered a 1586-1005 hammering on Nozomi Toujou.

When asked of Isshiki's remarks, Tedeza took a dim view of it.

"I clearly do not agree with the notion that the system is unfair," said Tedeza. "I am one of a few lucky faces to swept my group and I had never been a prime player in this competition until now. In fact, my party, the Gochiusa Party, has been severely underrespected, and there have been too many veterans that have had a stranglehold on this competition.

"You look at people like Shirayuki, Shinoa (Hiiragi), Mitsuki (Nase) Iroha, Yuudachi...these are opponents I have respect for that have the potential to be longtime veterans in this tournament. There are a number of faces that have been in this circuit that have fallen out of favor because the voters I talk to want change. They want new faces. Ayase has been doing this for years and she lost to Maki. You can't call that an upset because she is the head of the Love Live Party and is their strongest candidate so she has leverage.

"While I understand Iroha's choice of words, the fact is, Madoka has been in this Saimoe circuit too long and her loss to Shirayuki means that her time is nearly up as well. We'll see what happens in the other groups, and I am personally looking forward to seeing how Chino-chan does, but the voters want new people headlining this competition. You look at a number of faces in the Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall diadem competitions to come. They are the next ones to follow us and challenge us. Saimoe is changing."

In the Male Division, Saitama defeated Bell Cranel 1088-837, Shintarou Kisaragi whipped past Yashiro Isana 1389-810, Rintarou Okabe prevailed over Ryuunosuke Akasaka 1010-976, Yukine demolished Leonardo Watch 987-669, Tomoya Okazaki leveled Zen Wistalia 1030-784, Ayato Amagiri cruised past Ichimatsu Matsuno 1120-834, Ken Kaneki scored a rare win over Kousei Arima 1504-969 and Iskandar thumped Youji Itami 943-747.

"I feel bad for Nagisa, my wife," said Okazaki, "because she never stood a chance against the newer opposition in this competition. She's one of the older faces and had this Male Division been created years ago, I would have met a similar fate. So, in a massive irony, I may be the only one holding the fort for Clannad. You can make up your mind as to what that means. In the meantime, I want to congratulate everyone that finished top two in their respective groups."

Finally, in Winter Diadem action, Mary defeated Saya Endo 1298-785 and Mai Kawakami, a favorite to win the Winter Diadem for Musaigen no Phantom World, got off to a flier in hammering Chie Satonaka 1579-519.

In this edition of the International Saimoe League, there are no necklace matches after a round-robin period ends. We go straight to the next period.

One of the unique dynamics of the International Saimoe League is that any competitor can bounce back from a setback with a win, and any competitor with a big win can follow it up with a loss.

In the Male Division, Saitama won a 1152-1135 thriller over Yashiro Isana, Shintarou Kisaragi defeated Bell Cranel 1184-912, Rintarou Okabe rolled past Yukine 1060-889, Ryuunosuke Akasaka crushed Leonardo Watch 1134-855, Tomoya Okazaki leveled Ayato Amagiri 1080-943, Zen Wistalia scored the closest victory of the round: a 998-986 nailbiter over Ichimatsu Matsuno, Iskandar punched Ken Kaneki 1409-1224 and Kousei Arima flattened Youji Itami 1576-684.

In Winter Diadem action, Yumi burned Irisdina Bernhard 944-794 and Sayuki Kuroda defeated Clarion 984-893.

I Believe...


Walk blindly to the light and reach out for his hand
Don't ask any questions and don't try to understand
Open up your mind and then open up your heart
And you will see that you and me aren't very far apart

'Cause I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way

Violence is spread worldwide and there are families on the street
And we sell drugs to children now oh why can't we just see
That all we do is eliminate our future with the things we do today
Money is our incentive now so that makes it okay


But I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way
I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way

I've been seeing Lisa now for a little over a year
She said she's never been so happy but Lisa lives in fear
That one day daddy's gonna find out she's in love
With a nigger from the streets
Oh how he would lose it then but she's still here with me
'Cause she believes that love will see it through
And one day he'll understand
And he'll see me as a person not just a black man

'Cause I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way
I believe I believe I believe I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way
Love will find the way
Love will find the way
Love will find the way
Please love find the way
Please love find the way...
