    IP block - Racist and politically incorrect move by Daum Games
    Dear Daum Games & Pearl Abyss,
     My South Asian and Indian friends have been awaiting this game for a long time and even after it's limited global release patiently waited for the rest of South Asia (including India) to be included in the supported regions, to buy and play the game, adding to your customer base and revenue. If Daum Games & Pearl Abyss are unable to support additional regions, at the very least there should be no IP block, so people can purchase and play the game legally.

    Unfortunately, all this waiting has been in vain, since Daum Games & Pearl Abyss seem to have something against South Asians and Indians. Daum Games & Pearl Abyss think that South Asians and Indians are pirates / thieves, which is evident by the fact that Daum Games & Pearl Abyss are not allowing South Asians and Indians to play the game. South Asians and Indians are ready to give Daum Games an expanded customer base and revenue, and Daum Games is being racist by accusing them of being thieves / pirates by not letting them play. Actions like these by Daum Games and their likes are what force an incentive for increasing piracy (illegal downloads, vpn usage etc.).
     If Daum games was concerned about raiders (which is understandable), those accounts should be banned and their individual IP addresses should be blocked.
     This just leads me to believe that Daum Games & Pearl Abyss are being managed poorly, since they have missed a huge chunk of revenue (by blocking South Asia and India, half the population of the world) and have failed to be politically correct at the same time. By not following an inclusive global approach, Daum Games & Pearl Abyss have by default created a situation of bias against south Asians and Indians and clearly are being perceived as racists.
     Fellow gamers, please add / comment on this issue - how Daum Games & Pearl Abyss are mistreating half the world's population by excluding them completely and loosing out on revenue and customers. Let's together voice this extremely  poor management decision and racist action by Daum Games & Pearl Abyss.
     Thanks,JW https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/4r51jp/black_desert_online_bdo_ip_block_unfair_trade/?ref=share&ref_source=link https://www.tumblr.com/blog/johnwoodsthegamerworld
