How do you know that?  Did they say it would be in Spanish anywhere?  I didn't see anything of the sort.

More easy to open a server for 5 countries (example) than 1.

Well so oceania was magically allowed in the license, out of nowhere? This is so weird... Or you guys had to contact PA and rearrange the license agreement ? I wish  you could have done the same for South America and South Africa. This is really sad. We DONT have publishers for a game like BDO. This is the only way we'll ever be able to play BDO... Fight for our region , too.

I'm happy for the Oceania people , though xD

And middle east too, PLEASE :D

 

Thanks Hywel :P

Now server is gonna be filled with first world elitistic cunts. Rip 2nd world humble people.

 

My country isn't on that list for the record. I guess i'll be in the minority of humble and nice and cute people and we'll have to deal with swarms of rich aut and elitistic people

Dear players,

Oh my god, you just repeated a broken record.

So who's not in the list is ip blocked, that doesn't make any senses when you guys announce the game going be "buy 2 play" means region free to everyone expect those who got Black Desert in their home land, that's will make a lot of senses to buy the game not feeding fans extra PR bullshit, which clearly in https://www.blackdesertonline.com/en/legal/terms-of-use clearly said there will be region block, now it's more likely seems clear for me at least.

 

I am not a fanboy about this game, only fanboys going be feed be like "oh it make sense because of "ping"", nope you know that most of east europe ping to USA is like 180 ~ 200, but guess what they will be allowed to access your USA server :)

 

Define ping by measuring distances between two continent, basically I do predict for US their host will be in US virginia and EU French or Germany

I can't see any reason to block "ARMENIA, AZERBAIJAN, GEORGIA, KATAKHSTAN, KYRGYZSTAN, MOLDOVA, TAJIKISTAN, TURKMENISTAN, UKRAINE AND UZBEKISTAN, LATVIA, LITHUANIA, ESTONIA, TERRITORIES WITH LIMITED STATUS ABKHAZIA AND SOUTH OSSETIA"

That's doesn't make any sense because these blocked countries are not getting  a home land black desert and their ping is very smooth to French or Germany.

before any fanboy jump here and defend their beloved black desert, you just like sucking their bullshit and swallow it obviously.

Don't say oh they can use "VPN" bla bla bla, that doesn't make any good reason to use a 'free vpn that everyone use' that will be eventually blocked massive banned people with same ip they are going count it as 'boting', because that shows how retards they can be.

I am clearly here trying to say that they should resolve this with Pearl Abyss as they claim about agreement, mostly I know "Developers doesn't want block ip to x country or  what so ever, it's mostly from publisher side who doesn't want x country to play the game they publish"

 

Peace.

Wait, from what I understand, that certain areas will be blocked, since the middle east + African countries weren't mentioned, does that mean that they'll be able to join and will not be blocked?

"All countries not listed above will not be serviced and their IP will be blocked."

This means Africa and the middle-east are currently IP blocked.

Oh really so what did most of the eu FF14 player do to reduce their ping to the server that were located in NA till they finally got one located in EU hm?
Also this game is f2p in 3 other regions call me ignorant but you have the options to NOT buy the game.

Am I the one here that experiences terrible lag with VPNs ? My ping is a much higher with them. I've tried a couple programs, so could you tell me which one you use?

I remember the small paid options for WTFast and Battleping to be rather okay when i played Tera NA for a while there is anothe free one that was pretty amazing forgot what its called will edit when i find it /v/ used it quite a lot.

There are plenty of VPN Providers. Googling helps.

I'm not encouraging you to use VPNs since you might be banned because of it (it is not clear yet at this point), but VyprVPN is a good VPN provider with fast servers.

Any info about south america? This is the only thing left I guess...

You guys should give us some news, there is already a hide PRIVATE SERVER for south america... MANY people will play that when it becomes ''public''...You won't find about the server since is only for a facebook group and its game related not black desert related (About 10k people in the group) I'm thinking about playing aswell, just give south america an answer before we all lose our hopes and play this private server. :)

edit: 16k people not 10k just checked, many people are hyped to play this private server :/

I wish as official

There is no good VPN at all, and I don't think that WTFAST is considered as VPN, but it magically works sometimes with games that were IP-BLOCKED.
My point is VPN= bad bad bad solution 
WTFAST= better than my internet connection when using it with different games I dunno why ?_?, and works with RUSSIAN IP-BLOCK, but it doesn't work for other IP-BLOCKED games such as
Vindictus.
