Is Pearl Abyss realy that stupid?

How hard is it for them to understand that south american players DO NOT want to play on south american servers!!!!!!

There are valid OBVIOUS reasons why a HUGE part of them play in NA servers.

Its like who ever is making these decisions is totaly clueless.

Same thing with IP locking Baltic states (which are a part of EU and EU union) and selling the publishing rights to some shady Russian company. Still shocked though nobody has filed a lawsuit from Baltics against this bs by Pearl Abyss-

How hard is it for YOU to understand that some people don't want them playing on our servers? The last thing this game needs is a bunch of people who will have a terrible connection "hue"-ing all about the place. The stigma that comes with South American players is there for a reason, they ruin games that they play due to their inability/refusal to speak the main language and their lag.

I don't think you're getting it, language isn't the issue at all, it's the fact they're IP BLOCKED in the first place, by-passes that with VPNs (which is against the TOS and is bannable anyway) and then want to complain when they GET THEIR OWN SERVERS. Players ON THEIR OWN SERVERS shouldn't have to use the "Filter option" (What do you think that the filter is going to cover a whole other language? wtf?) because players that shouldn't even BE on this server are here.

Since we have no license for countries outside of the territory we cover, we had to IP Block those countries. Players using a VPN should understand that we may be required to implement further mechanisms in the future that may prevent them from accessing the game even with a VPN. In such cases, they should not expect any support from us, including the reimbursement of the game, pursuant to the provisions of article 3 of the Terms of Use.

Please note that a VPN is a means to circumvent a license restriction. We do not, under any circumstances, encourage the violation of our licensing agreement with Pearl Abyss (the developers of the game) and of article 8.2 of our Terms of Service. As such we do not provide any information on the use of VPN.

We understand the disappointment of players who are unable to play and hope we may be able to provide them with Black Desert Online in the future

We thank you for your understanding.

That's a good thing in the way that it will let most VPN users go to their respective regions. This will relieve some stress on the servers from those horrible connections. The down side might be a small percentage of the population leaving. We will be alright I guess.

Oh no I completely understand that 100%, I was commentating on the "hue-ing" and somewhat negative prior remark about Portuguese and other languages in general.....I'm not a fan of anything derogatory against persons based on criteria relating to their ethnicity, race, religion, etc etc etc etc.  Especially not in a gaming zone.  I saw a lot of "brazilian bashing" go on in a prior community, and it took a lot of ban-hammer to get the original community to stop being asses to others in that particular fashion.

 It doesnt' work the way you may think. Many of us tried this at launch to find out its not really a filter, but puts you on a different exclusive channel. So you wont see any of the chat from the international group.

Don't think of it as a filter, its a channel. Its the easiest way to not have anyone at all to talk to.

Just leech of the NA servers. That is What NA stands for after all. NA = entire world leech off our servers making the entire gameplay experience more laggy and less enjoyable for North Americans because of a bunch of foreigners running around with 200 ping speaking 30+ different languages. In fact, anyone from any region of the world that don't have servers, you can always play the North American ones. These ARE your servers. That's why they put the NA servers in the most retarded spot EVER, San Jose California, so people from Australia and Antarctica can have a better connection to leech off the US playerbase easier. This is why they sometimes call them the "global" servers. They couldn't be bothered to make more servers fore the rest of the world so they just dump them all in NA because...of course they do. Even though these companies will sometimes host up to 6 different regions on the same continent (KR, JP, TW, CN, SEA, RU...) They couldn't be bothered to do that for the western hemisphere.

So don't be silly OP, you already have a server for South Americans. A server for All

 

Silly OP.

I'd prefer them to be able to join the NA servers so we can all play together, what's the problem with that?

Licensing. Pearl Abyss has the right to distribute the game as they feel, and they believe they will be able to make more money by servicing each market separately. They probably are not wrong for a variety of reasons.

Not sure if joking or not, but they picked the server location before they even have rights to serve Australia. Australia was added after players here threw their arms up on the forums. So it was an after thought.

So if the game really starts to die can they merge EU/NA with South America and RU? Kappa

My point was pretty clear though. Someone will read your post and take it for gospel and repeat it. Joking or not you aren't the first person to make that statement. And its false, so just pointing it out for any random folks that may read the thread.

Cheers!
