    Thanks god

    Ive always play in N.A or Oceanic servers, as  most players here prefer to be in an English language speaking servers. 

     

    So now players from Singapore , Malaysia etc have to play in China server?

    Not to be negative, but Tera with is Asianic and non-tab targeting most likely wouldnt get as many subs like Tor or Wow.

    So what happens if the pop drops and need a merger? We merge with Koreans or Jap?

    How does me an english speaking North American find any value playing a game with somebody from the other side of world, in a different time zone  that I cant communicate with in an MMO.  Ill answer for you, none, no value to me what so ever.  Unless maybe I needed a couple thousand gold.......

    Account theft, gold-farming and other hacking behavior? Thier just being racist and ignorant just like SOPA. Without global players, TERA would die as quick as Vindictus and any other ip blocked games did due to the lack of players. O well, seems like we gotta use proxy again.

    There are plenty of people who speak perfect english even if thier not from America. For example, people from Singapore. Your statement is seriously ignorant. In the first place, how could a person even play the game if he cant understand its language let alone communicate ingame.

    I think it's ironic, to the point of lunacy, that a company convicted of software piracy, copyright violations, and IP theft are going to block portions of the world because they're afraid of the same to their game and their customers.

    IP blocking, yech. Not a big fan of that on principle. Although, I can understand why they'd want to do it, but sucks if you live in those regions and just wanna play the game.

    I missed this post when I read the thread.

    You are way off base. You don't need to speak the same language, or have both players speak the same language fluently to communicate.  Yeah, you can't have deep conversations, but you can have communication and game together.

    When I played Lineage on the NA servers there were Korean, TW, Chinese, US, Singapore, and players from Central and South America along with players from all over Europe, India, Aussies, and the rest of the world.  There were emotes and actions in game that we used to communicate.  We sort of developed our own language bridges despite the fact we didn't speak the same language.  We all gamed together and had a great time.  It was one of the most interesting game communites I've ever belonged to.

    Don't blame the rest of the world if you're not clever enough to cross language barriers.  This English Speaking North American has no problems gaming like that what so ever.

    If this is the case Koreans should be banned from KTERA

    I like how the kids (or the adults with non-developed intelligence) read the news and say "ah I'm not affected and thus I shall not care" but when they are the ones afflicted all hell breaks lose, selfish and narrow minded people who dont understand that something that affects people negatively can one day also affect them.

     

    People who seem to think that doing this will actually stop hackers from playing the game can add "ignorance" to the list of things that they excel within.

    This does not affect me btw as I dont live in any of the mentioned countries, just thought the level of stupidity from the comments was slightly frustrating even if its not suprising.

    what about military gamers stationed in those areas with blocked IPs or come down on orders to get stationed in those regions after they already subscribed???

    Call be cynical but it wont affect me so I have no reason to be biased

    I hear this complaint and then I see things like Square Enix aquiring Edios and making Laura Croft Asian knowing shes an American. Then I see things like The US trying to make a Akira movie they legally obtained rights to then getting protested against and being forced to stop production on said movie for making Akira american.  It seems to me that your logic is flawed and that "The Western " has let other countries topple over it so much they're tired of all the problems they are getting from certain contries Gold Farming and are putting up IP blocks to insure these certain contires no longer drag the "Money Grubbers" cash from there pockets illegally.

    Good move! Blocking 1/3 of your potential player base!

    Thats always good for the buisness.

     But than again, there will be no buisness because they never going to launch anyway. Due to lawsuit with NCsoft.

    Yes, But we all know That 1/3rd is the one eberyone complains about Spamming general,world,lfg,or the main towns going SELLING GOLD 100k FOR 22$ USD SPECIAL RATE!!!!, Or the ones in PVP that has a ping of 300 plus when they know anything above 100 is lagging bragiing about there mad skills when they teleport around you because there lag is so bad that it ruins the pvp exp like Gunz,Exteel,Dragon Nest,C21-Online,Cosmic Break, American Army, The list can go on but does it need to.

    I'm personally all for getting along with other countries where ping isn't important in games for pvp FF11,FF14,Lineage2,Ragnarok Online, like the list at the top could go on forever. The problem that I find thou is that when another country blocks us were supposed to go we understand South Korea=All games(Cause it's only greedy Westerners) If we do it however we are scum and deserve to die.

    Thank you for blocking other contries so we can stop being abused and being discriminated against. I support this 100%!!!!!

    Explanation is plain stupid. There is no hacker that will be discouraged by this measure. There are always proxies and they are cheap and numerous. And that's only one way to evade ip block.

    Most people who will be discouraged are probably decent players from regions named. So if it's for security it solves nada. To think this whole endeavor stinks.

  • TylonTylon Member UncommonPosts: 51

    This will not stop 1 single hacker or gold farmer. That is a fact.

    It is trivial for people who know anything about the internet to use a proxy. It will stop genuine players who are not as internet savvy however.

    Again, a lot of people is being hurt by the actions of a few. I'm sad, but even sadder by the reactions of the other members of these forums: no compassion to your fellow Human.

    Saying that people from that part of the world cannot speak English is not correct. Are you aware that India, Malaysia and Singapore while it was part of Malaysia were all former British colonies. Most of us speak fluent English.

    That is just so wrong, I'm from the Middle East, and I know for a fact that there is a huge amount of honest MMO gamers from here. I was honastly thinking of trying this game out when it's launched but sadly now it seems I will be IP blocked AND be labeled as an offender!

    I just hope that other gaming companies don't go that route, otherwise all of us honest middle eastern gamers will not be able to play MMOs at all.
