People take the internet too serious...go out get some sun and cool off
the term you are seeking is Regional IP block. not IP... as 90% of the net used today is dynamic meaning today i have IP 18.104.22.168.1.1 tomorrow i might have it or it might change to 22.214.171.124.1.1.1 so blocking 126.96.36.199.1.1 wont stop me connecting lol.
regional means no one in my area/country can connect regardless of dynamic ip..
and to be honest why would you want that? does someone from tim buck too really effect your game at all??

i hope it doesnt, but its a two way line. both IP block and IP unblocked have pros and cons.
My main con with IP block is the lack of players. You can guess the pros
I dislike region locking because I am in multi gaming guilds that have players in other countries. Thus, we stay away from region locked games.

there are scammers in the US too. IP block cant stop that. And if thats the best the company can do to keep scammers out of their game then poor company..... tsk tsk tsk

Should of been a bit more explanatory with your reasons in the OP.
Personally, I think locking regions goes against what the internet is about.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCyZYhobvc4
Keep living in your fantasy world man.If they implement Regional IP blocking this game won't last long.It's funny that you specified 'Asian' and as someone who is in an international(all continents) Guild I can tell you that all the cheaters.botters that we caught were from US.

your sig says you're waiting for ArcheAge, and Blade and Soul. You also are a fan of Trion who recently purchased the rights to run the NA version of ArcheAge, a game made in Korea.
A suggestion for you...look up the word 'hypocrite', then look in the mirror.
Otherwise, I am sincerely hoping you are being a troll and not being serious, for there is so much wrong in your statement. Like for one, gold sellers and farmers are now based in NA itself.

Well, as long as you put it back, when you are done with it, thats ok... ^^ It depends on what the purpose of the lock out is. Its usually, so that the regional publisher gets those players. In other words money. But it can be, because players outside of that region may have much worse ping, and that can really impact some types of games.

It's not about scammers, it's about farmers, who will sell an hours worth of currency gains for like 2 dollars. Only US botters would do anything nearly so cheap, and botters can be combatted in smaller numbers, whereas a large chinese contigent can plague a game to the point of ruin.
