"(Sunnyvale, CA – July 11, 2005) - Shot-Online, the massively multiplayer online golf game developed by OnNet Co, Ltd., has smoothly and successfully launched on June 28th with full commercial features, a new course addition and much more. That success alone would be reason enough for any massively multiplayer online game to rest on its laurels – instead, however, Shot Online is lining up an action-packed season of events, starting with the 3rd Shot-Online Global Championship.
The 3rd Shot-Online Global Championship is set to take place online between July 12, 2005 at midnight to July 15, 2005 11:59 PM (CST). All members of Shot-Online are eligible to participate with their top-level characters per ID. Players have up to 50 chances to score their best rounds. The competition will take place on the dangerously beautiful desert-themed “Rufus Arena” course. For all three skill levels (levels.1 - 20, Level. 21 - 40 and over level 41), the prize for the first place winner is a one month Gold Plus Shot-Online membership; for the second place winner a one month Gold Shot-Online Membership; and for the third place winner a unique, rare in-game item. For all participants, there is a chance to be randomly drawn to win in-game prizes.
Shot-Online is a hybrid persistent online game, a golfing simulation incorporating elements of traditional role-playing, enhanced by a proprietary physics engine for golf ball dynamics and interaction with eight challenging, varied golf courses. Detailed 3D graphics and smooth-as-silk animation enhance the realism of Shot-Online as a simulation. On the role-playing side of Shot-Online, characters can level and grow in skill and capability through training, while team and solo competitions allow players a chance to win game currency to buy skill-enhancing items, and quests and other community events are offered for even more depth.
Shot-Online, for Windows/PC systems, is available online for free download at the official website (http://www.shot-online.com). Shot-Online offers absolutely FREE play without time or play limits; however, with a Gold Membership for the entertainment-packed, high-value rate of $9.99 a month, a 50% discount on the greens fee; a 30% discount on items purchased with in-game currency; the locker fee is free; and trade between users is free, and other benefits are offered. For the Gold Plus Membership of just $14.99 monthly, along with the other benefits of regular membership, the greens fees are free and a friend’s green free can be discounted 50% and a one million monthly allotment of the in-game currency is given to the player, along with other benefits.
