VPN is it allowed ?

Just because there have never been a publisher for an MMO in my region I don't expect someone other than Daum would get the rights to publish the game here,or at least I hope they do.

anyway , I'd really love to play the game with my friends from the EU region and wanted to ask if using the VPN is tolerated ? and what's the risk that comes with it ?

 I want to buy the Conquers Package because I believe that no one other than Daum would come forward to publish the game here and didn't want to miss this chance of getting some unique armor and other things that comes with the launch of the game .

This was brought up before and another user shared his/her support ticket experience with this same question.

They did not say you can or cannot use vpn. BUT if their gameguard type things / anticheat stuff pick it up and it auto bans you for it there is nothing they can do for you.

So use at your own risk type thing... but like Jumanji said they wont hunt vpn users down xD.

I doubt that Daum will spend their resources to track down vpn players. If they did, then I can only see the shit storm flying through the forums the moment it does happen.

Pretty much what people said. Doubt they will take any actions against it.

Keep in mind that their website also has IP block. So even to create an account or to contact them you have to use a VPN. I tried accesing my bdo account on the website with a Russian IP and it didn't let me. Good thing is if it's like RU, you can disconnect the VPN once you are in channel selection avoiding lags or high ping if your VPN isn't good enough. 

Now let's see if i get a warning/ban for saying this.

In our community we have friends from turkey to russia.

We have been gaming with each other since 2003 and a publisher aint going to stop that.

Its wrong in so many ways for those guys but hey a VPN does the trick.

If they get banned then so be it, but they sure as hell aint going to stop uf from playing a game with each other.

Doin this disconnects me right away... :D Even if VPN crashes during my play i get dc... Have to run it whole time..

But most of the time i have no problems with ping... Just yesterday, whole RU server was full AF, outside of premium channels, so it lagged for the first time, since i remember... (even with different VPNs)

You have to disconnect VPN right IN channel selection before picking any channel, not after on character selection, not before when inputing the personal code.

it would be nice if the NA release was for all us NA who havnt played the game and to get a new start on a new game, unfortunately alot of us, (not me) have already played KR version or RU version, and again alot of people will come over here from KR or RU using VPNs and blow the "fresh" start mmo experience right out the water because they already know the game inside and out.

not if you use WTFast or some sort, one of my friend are playing Russian BDO with VPN + WTFast and he still does pvp with 109ms, which is pretty good

you just need a good paid VPN, free VPN will of course, f**k u up

you most likly never reduce ping with VPN. also i was playing on the RU BDO and i used VPN and all the pay versons gave me 300+ ping.

when i used a free VPN i got 60 ping.

also the free never made me reboot my PC/network card when i dc'ed from the VPN
