MEDIA ALERT: ARGO Online Adds New Ranking Ladder System, Month-Long Contest Offers $500 in Prizes for Top Rankers

MUNICH - July 28, 2011

alaplaya, the leading international free-to-play gaming portal, today announced that Steampunk-themed MMORPG ARGO Online now features a new experience ranking system that tallies total EXP earned and ranks each character versus all characters in-game. In addition, a second RTS ranking ladder has been made available, showing which characters in the post-apocalyptic world have the most wins and fewest losses.

To commemorate the new feature, alaplaya will be holding a month-long event that will give players the chance to win fantastic prizes. Starting today, players will be placed into“winnings” levels, based on their character’s level, with the task of amassing as many EXP points as possible. At the end of the contest period, the character with the most EXP earned in each“winnings” category will win a designated amount of AP for that level, with the grand prize in the highest category equaling $150 worth of AP.
