Announced at the Korean G*star conference in Seoul, GamesRouter is giving players of its R.O.S.E. MMORPG the chance to bag some fantastic prizes by defeating selected monsters and redeeming the tickets they leave behind.
Beginning January 2006 and ending at the end of November, players who sign up and play R.O.S.E. (Rush On Seven Episodes) will have the chance to level up and take on fierce monsters for the chance to win in-game items and game time, electronic gadgets and PCs, as well as a range of one-off cash prizes.
Selected in-game monsters will drop bronze, silver or gold tickets upon defeat. Bronze tickets can be redeemed against game time and R.O.S.E. merchandise. Silver tickets offer portable music players and a series of electronic gadgets, but it's the Gold tickets that everyone will be after.
Up to 50 gold ticket winners will be taken on an all expenses paid trip to an undisclosed location, where they can battle it out in a live tournament for the chance to pick up the ultimate prize of 1 million Euro in cash. GamesRouter has confirmed that each of the 50 ticket holders will receive a prize, ranging from humorous 'booby prizes' to laptops, gadgets, 50,000 Euro and, of course, the grand prize.
R.O.S.E. Online is the first MMORPG to feature seven distinct planets, each with its own unique set of environments, laws and inhabitants. Players can use force or subterfuge to invade and dominate planets as they gain skills and experience throughout the game.

The company hopes to achieve this by building a diverse portfolio of titles across multiple genres and utilising direct marketing and community initiatives such as the R.O.S.E. competition
