    That is a very likely scenario, considering the way most contracts and companies work.

    As was I!  
     
    One can only hope there may be options. But glad the community is good enough to assist and communicate together. Really hoping to be apart of building this up together with everyone.

    I'd like to think companies in the past have tried to accommodate their customers, as I've played games with SoE, Blizzard, and a few others. And there are certain companies that are obviously less interested in assisting. But some that really shined in trying to find the best way for you to enjoy the game.
     
    There are always attempts for a peaceful solution  Haha.

    Not to derail the post, but I'd say PvPers do like fighting some of the same people day in and out, with some variety of others. But rivalries especially between guilds can really get a community going. Look at EVE, Everquest, and so on. Plenty of examples of games where the consistency of rivalries created more opportunity for the PvPers. At least in my observation
     
    But yes, I agree, people should keep an open mind and try to back up sources based on why they think a certain aspect of the game would cause a snowball effect. Which can happen, we've seen games fail for many reasons, just need to identify why and try to help the best we can as a community.

    So, If I'm understanding your post correctly, there may not be an option for us at all? Surely as quite a number of consumers we would like at least some options given to us by Daum hopefully. Or in someway make it possible for us to enjoy the game should we choose to invest our money into it. 
    Unless I'm wrong and they don't plan to have any options for us whatsoever.

    U.S. Service member Overseas Question
    Hello to the forum members!
    So, to start out, I recently wanted to pre-order my copy of Black desert, to show my dedication to a game I've followed for a long time now. Followed updates, Overseas betas, etc. But I realized the restriction of the IP service areas would not apply to me due to my job overseas as a USAF Airman, stationed within Japan. 
    Now, on our base I use a U.S. router that I purchased with a modem given to me by the local internet supplier, unfortunately it does still read us as located in Japan. I was curious if there were any options for us servicemen and women that show interest in this game but are stuck unfortunately overseas. I would obviously rather avoid playing on the Japanese servers, as my friends and family will be on the U.S. version.
    I'm going to assume the best option would be to use VPNs, if anyone has a certain recommendation, please let me know on that subject.
     
    But again, I ask if Daum has any plans to assist with the military members and their station, along with the inability to even purchase the pre-order due to our location. Would appreciate any thoughts or assistance on the topic!
     
    Thank you!
