Hey guys , I'm one click away from pre -ordering and i was wondering if any of the officials could answer my query about ip blocking ? Is India still IP blocked? Previously i wasn't able to access the website without proxy but now it lets me , so i was wondering if the block has been removed. Thanks, jag

Yep, it isn't. And that's just the thing they needed to know... when it's not in the list, it's most likely not going to be in the service area for Daum EU. Which means, they won't be able to play here sadly

Again, Google search is your friend. People have been playing the RU/KR versions via proxies for a long-time now. See no reason for that to change for NA/EU. There's not a LOT the devs can do about it from an IP-level perspective.

Do anyone tried playing japanese version from india using vpn and does it work?

Yep, it isn't. And that's just the thing they needed to know... when it's not in the list, it's most likely not going to be in the service area for Daum EU. Which means, they won't be able to play here sadly

I never said you can't play in the near future, i said they won't be able to play now because it's simply not in Daum EU's service area. As the post i linked the first time already said: "For any territory not mentioned above there may be different channels offered in the future". The only thing i can say is, hope for the best and wait for someone to expand their service area to india, or some publisher to release the game into india.

No you're not allowed to play from India. NA ip blocks everyone but Canada

I'm sincerely hoping you're just trolling right now... if not, you might wanna read the service area post again >.>

Meh you'd have to use a VPN service anyway. The data center they chose is on the west coat. In the mid west I can only get around 80 ping to it. It won't make a difference where you live.

That's why EU players have servers in EU and NA players in NA. But EU players can still connect to NA and vise versa if they want to, as long as they are in the service area of Daum that is... Indian players will have to rely on VPNs and hope for the best that their ping isn't killing them.

....Or wait for another publisher :c

So i know im replying to this thread very late, but i bought this game from India via VPN (Used Opera Browser) (,hrough the normal credit card option), While entering the credit card details make sure to enter the billing address as the same one stated in your credit card.  Paypal didn't work for some reason. Once i successfully bought it downloading the application was a breeze. Though downloading the in game data took a lot of time. Once everything was downloaded you can't just launch it because it would show you an error that you are living outside the marked regions of the game (Namely the EU and NA) so luckily i had a few VPN codes i managed to snatch from a VPN company give away and i used the VPN Application (Okay Freedom VPN) servers are pretty fast and ping is relatively low as well. So launched the VPN application and choose the server region as America and then i managed to log in and play. No issues after that. I am living in Delhi and can confirm this works pretty well. But keep in mind you need to find a good VPN application or the lag would be tooo horrible
