Anyone else out there feel my pain? I want to play, but can't... I get why certain countries are locked, but i am from South Africa, dnt see the point of locking us out, I can play any other mmo published in EU, why!?!

    I was in your shoes. Then I decided to move to NZ and all my problems along with 3rd world ones got solved.
    It has to do something with publishing and stuff, but it is almost too intentionally coincidential that only "3rd world countries" got this region lock. Not that I support the idea of it, but it is what it is.

    I'm pretty sure they would love to have half of the world's money.

    There are many reasons why a product is not available in a specific region. Yeah, I get it, it can suck (I have this problem buying movies in foreign markets though Amazon UK private sellers don't care and will send a product if you buy it) but don't think for one minute that any company "wants" to have their product limited.

    Many people played the KR and RU versions through VPN, but I have no idea about the NA/EU ones.

    @DMKano might know, since he plays games from other regions all the time.

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    How you tried to invest in a good VPN with a monthly sub?

    There you go:

    South America is launching in 1 month time, 2 weeks time if you buy Early Access.
