I know there has been lots of topics about it but i just had to be %100 sure about it as no one could really give an answer to it. I just want to know if i use vpn programs like SoftEther VPN  or wtfast anything like it to just bypass the ip block would that be a reason to be banned? I had to be sure as i'm going to spend 30 bucks in this game.

People reported that VPNs don't work with this game. WTFast didn't work for people that tried it even in the US.

EDIT: referring to tests people did during closed beta 2

Well in this case it's really sad. Is there anyone else to confirm it

There is always a risk to get banned when using public VPNs, because Daum does not support them.

If someone uses the VPN to hack/exploit or bot/spam the game they have to ban the ip address and accounts.

Wouldn't it be a no reason ban and reverseable? I mean if i get banned that way can't i just simply explain them and get my account back? Just curious

I managed to play CB 2 with SoftEther, given my region was IP locked from the game.

Terms of use state that you have to be of a supported region. You break those terms by playing from a different location so they can ban you.

 

It isnt like they want to do and enforce it but i am pretty sure that it is some kind of buisiness agreement so that one region cannot steal the players, by lowering prices n stuff, from the other companys.

 

So really i don´t expect them to ban you neither here nor korea but if u are form a foreign region maybe ru, japan or korea fit you better and i cannot give you any support on cheating the TOS in here.

VPNs to by pass an IP block is grounds to get banned. 

They don't want you here because of licensing reasons. This is common sense, every MMO with IP blocks bans anyone that tries to by pass them.

In my case it's totally diffrent i live in turkey and there is nowhere that it's not blocked to us. Can't play in ru ko jp in this case vpn is inevitable thus baning makes no sense at all but i don't know...

A lot of people are using WTFast since launch with no issues. Even in the US it still can improve your connection the further you are from the game servers. Even if you have really good internet/hardware you can still have game connection issues etc. Taking the fastest route to the server does and will save a small % of ping spikes etc etc.

Best of luck.

VPN's working perfectly fine.

They won't ban you unless you somehow get a spotlight on your case, they legally have to say they do not allow VPNS and will ban you BECAUSE of the regional license agreement.This game is Licensed ONLY to EU/NA to Daum, other regions are not included for whatever legal reasons, they will definitely not actively hunt down vpn users and ban them unless legally obligated to do it under some kind of license dispute that ends up in a court order for Duam to do so.

 

So it could be possible but highly unlikely, because VPN users from other countrys are huge revenue for DAUM, they would never chase them away unless legally obligated to do so from an external entity.

Does wtfast work period? Never understood how it could possibly work knowing exactly what it should theoretically be attempting.

Popular VPN services are easily banned because the IP's used are common knowledge and built into many frameworks that autoban VPN's. More obscure VPN's and private VPN's make it impossible for them to know you're using a VPN at all.
