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 :)

◈ Notice

[Regarding the Foreign IP Block]

 

Dear explorers,

An additional set of certain foreign IP addresses will be added to our foreign IP block pool in order to provide seamless gaming experience for the global users of Black Desert. Players with blocked IP addresses will not be able to launch the game through the Korean website.

(You will not be able to start the Korean client when clicking the "Game Start" button.)

Our apologies if you are currently enjoying Black Desert from outside Korea.

■ Foreign IP Restriction

Date: Thursday, March 3, 2016

Measure: Certain foreign IP addresses will be banned from launching the Korean version of Black Desert.

This measure is based on Article 1, Act 6 of Daum Game's Terms of Service.

※  Daum Games Terms of Service (Modified August 1, 2014)

 

6. Approval and Disapproval of Service

(1) The company reserves the right to approve or revoke the service in one of the following cases.

4. If the user is using the service outside of Republic of Korea, and the restriction of the service is required due to a service 

contract between the Company and an overseas service agency, or when restricting users from certain regions is necessary for 

administrative reasons.

 

 

>> Read Full Terms of Service Here's Daum Games

We apologize for any inconveniences it may cause, and we deeply appreciate your understanding..

Regards,

The Black Desert Team

That really has to suck for those who have invested tons of hours in KR. I can understand WHY they did this...but there will be some backlash.

Considering you needed to buy a KR I-Pin verified account anyway, the risk was always there.

At least they let them all know and hell, are keeping it accessible until the release. That's pretty cool of them.

FTW for vpns?? But still never intended to play there if there is an European/North  American community.

Kinda great of them to let people from all over play anyways, as most korean mmo's I know are strictly IP blocked anyway.

Yeah I know. I never really understood the draw in that. I played RU for a minute but the translation drove me nuts. Even still there is nothing attractive about having to start over.
