  1. 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.
