If you have a plan to have a booth at G-Star 2012, your chance is not left. According to G-Star organization, B2B registration has been closed due to the exceeded requests.
99% of B2C booth was reserved already while 105% booth was reserved for B2B. The notable companies that will be presented at B2C are Joymax, Blizzard, Neowiz, Wemade, NHN, Nexon, Neople, Wargaming etc. Especially, there will be typical domestic mobile game companies such as SK Planet, Com2uS, Gamevil etc. B2B booth area has been increased about 30% compared to the last year.
The pre-registration for buyers will be started from the end of September through the official G-Star homepage – www.gstar.or.kr
At G-Star 2012, there will be 2 big e-sports events as well – <League of Legends> opening event for the Champions Winter and GNGWC finals.
A staff from Neople, the developer of Dungeon&Fighter, leaked the security technology of Dungeon&Fighter.
The key security technology for Dungeon&Fighter called ‘Hacktype’ could indicate bot programs and shut down accounts that are using bots. ‘Ms.A’ joined Neople in 2005 and has worked at the operating team since the launch of Dungeon&Fighter. Mr.B from a virtual item factory approached her through her brother in 2010 and asked her for the information of Hacktype. In return, he offered a good amount of money.
From April, 2010 to July, 2011, she provided various information of Harcktype and update schedule, log files for more than 10,000 accounts etc to him. Mr.B wired money to Ms.A 21 times. The total amount of money he wired is US$106,140. She spent the money to pay her debts and buy a car.
Neople asked the investigative agency to investigate the security issue because even though they update the security program several times, it was breached. Ms.A was asked for 1 year in prison and charged an additional fee of US$71,590. Her brother was asked for 10 months in prison and charged an additional fee of US$34,550.
Neople announced that its MMROPG Dungeon & Fighter (던전앤파이터: Kor) operated by Samsung reached 200,000 CCUs in Korea. The company found that the event that gave away a jumping character which normally can be played up from level 40 was one of main reasons behind such surge in CCUs.
Neople announced that Dungeon & Fighter (DNF) reached 2,100,000 CCUs. The game have been operated by its local partner Tencent since last year.

Last May I posted a news that Neople is going to publish Dungeon Figther in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao in 3Q with the local publishing partner, Gamania. Now they set up an official launch date for DNF as July 16th.
Gamania had a CBT from June and used up 60,000 beta keys right after they became available to gamers.
