  1. Hello, since few weeks i have a login problem. I checked my account at my friend's PC and it had work. But when I'm trying to connect to play at home I have a communicate:
    "Your country is restricted from accessing our service.
    Please check the Terms of Service for the details about our Service Territory. If you live within our Service Territory but you are blocked, please contact our Customer Support. Thank you for your understanding."
    I checked all of possible features. I had a conversation with my internet operator. 
    I am from Poland but my IP is signed on the Equator. What THE F...? He explaned me that he's firm bought some IP adresses and I have one of them, so "it's FRESH" and you have to update your geolocation IP database because all of my friend's who have internet connection from that network provider has the same problem with log in to game and the website. I don't using VPN's because I know it's inhibited. So please update your IP database. We bought that game for play and we can't do this without your help.
    Please repair that problem fast. I have no play a long time... 
    Please response me back...
    Kind regards,
    (Waha) - Jordine server
  2. Hi. I don't know if this is the right place to post this...
    I bought the game while I was in the UK thinking that I will play it as soon as I get back home to my gaming PC (one of my friends there hyped me up to play with him) to my surprise my country is blocked from accessing the game.
    anyway from snooping around the forum and the internet I noticed that my issue isn't going to be solved anytime soon, so seeing that I already bought it without research because I thought in 2016 and for a 29 pounds video game why bother, I didn't even think this was an issue.. but it was my fault none the less.
    but I digress, what I'm asking is if there are any VPN software to get around that? I would also be thankful if it has a guide to activate it with the game. I use Battleping quite regularly but don't know how to activate it for the game, I also tried WTFast but both couldn't pass the IP block as it comes up in the launcher and both those app's detect games after they launch.
    please note that I don't care about the possibility of being blocked for using a VPN, at this point I just want to at least try the game that I bought.. 
    one last thing... please please please only comment if you have something useful to say. thank you
  3. 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.

  9. Post on Possible LA Release in Suggestions

    By Miyh0, posted
    Good Afternoon everyone.

    As many of you can probably guess, i am from Brazil. And i understand why BDO would ip-block the LA Players as i know very well how many of us can behave. I do wish to respect the company's decision so i will not be using a VPN in order to bypass the block. But i would still love to play the game all the same. As many of my friends, who are willing to pay, but not to pay and risk being banned by the sole reason of our ip-location.

    Since i could not find a better place to ask, i thought here was apropriate as this is also a sugestion to open a server for LA Players, as there is demand from what i see. But is there any plans to either open a server that LA Players can enjoy the game or lift the block?

    Thanks in advance.
  10. Dear Angry Ones
    There are plenty of people swearing up and down that they will just not play BDO in NA/EU and stick with KR.  KR is kicking you out...welcome home

  11. There is not much to say really , i am just sitting in south Africa with a 100mb uncapped line and the only reason i cant play is because i am ip blocked . so please just let me and the many like me play on the EU servers ,that is all
  12. Hey guys , I'm one click away from pre -ordering and i was wondering if any of the officials could answer my query about ip blocking ? Is India still IP blocked? Previously i wasn't able to access the website without proxy but now it lets me , so i was wondering if the block has been removed. Thanks, jag
  13. Edit: Update in my next post probably making this whole thread irrelevant.
     
    Fellow angry Balts, please post here.
    Because I can, I have made a thread on the Russian forums on the same topic. So for consistency, and to inform both communities, I'll make a 'twin' thread on these forums too.
    According to this support page, as well as this forum post by PM_Belsazar, the countries within the service area of Gamenet, the Russian publisher for BDO, will not be allowed to access the game on the EU/NA servers. Not only is this unfair for the majority of the population of the Baltic countries, I must also point out that it is unreasonable for the western publishers to miss out on our patronage. I propose that an exception be made for Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, so that these countries would belong to both service areas.
    Financially, my reasoning is that all parties would benefit from this compromise. The Russian publishers would lose virtually no income and the western publishers would only gain from this.
    Language, age and culture. The majority of the target audience speak English a lot better than Russian, and identify with western culture rather than Russian. People under 24 (an incredibly large portion of an MMO playerbase) who were born in the Baltics, were born in an independent country, with their own culture, and their own language, where Russian was not forced upon them.
    Location. It goes without saying that Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania belong in the European Union, and are close to both the European and Russian servers.
    Thanks for your attention.
  14. Hi everyone, feel free to rage or chop my head off as this is my first post. I am really excited for BDO! But like most people who like to know what they're getting into I try to see what there is to know about the game before I buy. It's time to start asking questions. First, I would like to start out by saying imo that the game looks like a real triumph, a true experience envisioned and designed by some of the best out there, and I don't think there's anything about the game that would make me regret anything about it's playable content, but something concerns me about the lack of official/stable info about the game for it's release and the restrictions that there might be.
    My concerns, on the announcements page there are very few posts made to officially state info about anything, the only thing that is really mentioned is something vague about ip blocks and territory restrictions for Europe and North America, my problem with that is it makes it sound like I won't be able to play with my best friend who lives in Japan simply because of his nation IP jurisdiction, I'm hoping that's not the case. Another important concern is dropping 99$ on a Conquerors package when the bulk of the package beyond the Explorer's package is 2,500 pearls for in game currency cosmetics, an additional day of CBT and the rest of the incentive is simply for an increased amount of items also received under the Explorer's package and a higher Tier horse mount for an additional 50$ price increase. To me that's fine so far as the "In Game Title" reflects my dedication as a supporter, but this is not clear to me if it is or not. With out a official release date I feel like it's dangerous to consider purchase at this time simply because of the lack of info there seems to be for the release of this game. A lot of what is generally known also just seems to be hearsay so I'm not quite ready to pull the trigger on this one, I'm not that lucky when it comes to gambling, lol.
    Are my concerns valid or am I just being a worry wart? Anybody else feel the same?

    Sorry This is duplicate thread

  16. Hello Guys,
    I was following Black Desert for the past 2 years, I just read the news that they have restricted access to outside Territories. I find this silly because people throughout the world have been waiting for a Western Release. I can understand Free2Play games doing this because it brings lot of cheaters/hackers etc. But if someone is paying 30 Euros or more for it, why not just let them play? I am so disappointed with this IP block thing, lot of MMOS have done this in the past, I was hoping BDO wouldn't do this. Using VPNs might be an option but its not a fair one for those who want to try out this game so badly and willing to pay for the service.
    I hope you guys remove the IP Block thing, its really silly.
    Best Regards,
    MassaX
  17. Hello everybody! I just wanted to say we are SO MANY South Americans who really want to play this game... Its not fair... There is a BIG gaming community here, and developers underestimate us.
    Just PLEASE consider making South America available!
    I've seen there is no IP block for the Falkland Islands, wich are literally a few miles away from Argentina.
    If you wanna help, please make some noise!
    Thank you!!
    (that's me in the pictures ^.^)

  19. Post on Why IP block? in General

    By Jaad, posted
    I am from India and  a lot of Indian play MMORPG, I am confused about Daum Europe act like where they get License they allow to play and rest countries are IP block but why? I can understand RU, cause they already have their own Game, but why All the world. There is a lot of countries, they don't even care about license system. Like in India if you are selling Physical copy or setting up a server then you need an approval from authorities for sale. Another thing why Daum block IP by their own when they are not installing servers in every country, this is a nation's headache what to allow or not to their citizen, if content are not allowed in specific country then country restrict access not company.
    *** Sorry abt my English
  20. I formatted my computer a few weeks ago and at this moment I'm reinstalling the Korean Black Desert Online and for some reason the downloader is working without a VPN being used.
    Makes me wonder. Has the Ip Block been taken down or something? It'll take a few hours for me to finish the download and finally find out if I can play it without a VPN or not.

  22. 1. DEFINITIONS “Territory” means in the United States of America, Mexico, Canada and all European countries, except Turkey and Russia.
    3. TERRITORIAL RESTRICTIONS The Game is licensed by Daum Games Europe only for the Territory. The User may create an Account, access the Website and the Forums from anywhere in the world. However, the User may only access the Shop and the Game from the Territory. In the event the User acquired the Game from the Territory and then relocated outside of the Territory, the User will no longer be able to access the Game.
    Is this means that is gonna be an IP BLOCK for all the rest of the world?
    The Middle Eastern players are not going to be able to play Black Desert?
    We need a proper answer before we get to pre-order the game for nothing.

    The hype is gone Can we restore it? can the rest of the world restore the HOPE? The Shining HOPE... The European server...
    The Shining Light is slowly gone...
    OMG... Can't believe this...
  23. Hey Everybody :3
    Super excited about the release of the website and the forum I've been following the development of the game since 2012 and I'm hoping I'll get a chance to play it here in Australia with the upcoming western release.
    I don't know too many other MMO fans so if you're close to my timezone (UTC/GMT +11) and looking for a BDO buddy hit me up on Skype: tullyrobertson
    I've been a solo player in too many MMORPGs and I think BDO is the perfect game to turn that around.


    All aboard the hype train  
    Hope to chat with you guys soon.
