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.

I'd like to see how you'd know that "most" eu FF14 players used a vpn. But I personally had no problems playing FF14 from south africa without any vpn. And also, skull is not complaining about the game having a price; it's the fact that people are expected to accept not being treated like customers after buying the game and paying for that service.

Well, Congz Oceania region, im happy for you guys.

But i hope other regions will be added to the covered regions soon... really hope so.

ye i think it will be a lil harder than Oceania since other regions have diff languages but i think daum could just add 1 langauge to these regions which is ENG since its an international language.

Congz again Oceania region.

Yes exactly, if i buy a game i expect to play it normally, not with vpn. Of course if my region will be blocked and vpn is the only option (if thats an option at all) i will not buy the game, and wait 1-2 year untill i move back to europe. (IF i wont find an other game, or a better mmo is release untill then, so again both me and the company will loose, which is not good for anyone..)

They will never think about "blocked regions" unless every person in this forum go on riot mode at them, then they will consider the decision to unblock x region and do another agreement with Pearl Abyss.

Otherwise it will stay how it is.

Greetings,

 Please remove Baltic states IP block, we are part of the European Union. I know we are under GameNet, but that is because we got Russian speaking citizen here. But what about to majority that has English as 2th language and don't know how to speak Russian. Yes, we can play under GameNet with English patch, but only as SinglePlayer game, because we don't understand anything what others are saying. I personally don't like the Russian community as well so don't force us to play there. 

 I was really looking forward for the EU NA Black Desert, because this game has most of the features in one baggage that I always wanted. So please don't ruin it for us and remove the IP block so we can also enjoy it like the others. Give us a better choice if not I will personally move on because there is no way I'll play the foreign version.

Hope you understand,
Gaa

Lithuania is like 1-2 countries away from EU servers. I know that we are under GameNet (no idea why) but that just makes no sense to block us. Why just don't let to choose where to play Jesus

First things first. They made an agreement for SEA. Be patient, they might be working on more regions.

oceanic is NOT SEA, SEA stands for south east asia, which is still IP blocked

I'm pretty sure that South America started the "Riot" because the one that created the signing for not IP block is a decent Brazilian player so leaving us out is kinda sad.... not to mention that we have more players than Oceania ones but still I'm very happy that Daum made something with PA to add them to their liscense because this means that miracles can happen.

On a side note... I guess I have to stick to either BDO JP or BDO RU until South America gets part of this love that Daum gave to other regions today... of course without forgetting about South African people and Middle-East ones as well!

And I will clarify this to the people that will say "wait for PA to agree something with a publisher from your region"

South America HAS NO PUBLISHER AT ALL

Don't insist on it guys, we DON'T have a decent publisher, as much we have like 2 or maybe 3 (Excluding Riot LA) that failed at everything, 1 running S4 League but is full of hackers because of lack of support and actual service, another one that failed at running an Elsword server that in the end it had to be merged into the NA liscense once again and another random one, pretty much all what I said.

PS: I'm NOT complaining because this is actually an extremely good news from Daum that advanced adding Oceania to their liscense agreement (wich is rare for a publisher to achieve that in so little time) wich it won my sincere Respect for them, I still have hopes that they will add other regions to their liscense but I hope that is rather sooner than later...

Make a mark of our voices together we're gamers not sheeps who will listen to PR bullshit, we can unit together and break their faces down hills and make our history through internet that's connecting us, we're no matter what we're in life we're gamers to play games that we think we like to play a huge riot through social media and etc will remark a history of gamers, we should unit together to never allow other publishers or developers to make the same mistake ever again.

We will never back off or just leave it as it's, we should go into action and make a big list of riot to each of individual plenty of shares to allow these scum-bags hear how we want the game to be or how it will be as.

We're together going take the games we want to be we be the boss of our own not sheeps allowing each company do whatever they want, we're together gonna change gaming history starting from now.

No one mess up with gamers now days, once we hit our goal we achieve something, we will achieve it together.

from kids to teens from teens to adults and from adults to elders. life circle is too short to live, so join me my fellow gamers in journey of riots against gaming companies industry to fix what's missing from x game or what they should change  from x game, we make our voices heard and making sure the game we like isn't going be money grabbed only.

If you're agreeing with me I'll appreciate it, if you're not agreeing with me don't come back crying about it.. because we will be like "We told you so..".

Let the riot beings share through social media and let everyone knows about what's going on, let's be heros to save gaming in general!

 

Your fellow Gamer, Mox.

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

If it's a Black Desert Private Server then I hope they get rid of it. That's basically theft. Why would we pay the game when you guys essentially get it for free?

Thanks for letting us know by the way.

Private Servers ARE theft. If they acquired the server files legally, there would be no need to make it private.

the hell? private server? Do you know that it can just lower the chance to get the game legally for us? I wouldn't play a private server because it won't last long as the actual legal servers because I know that it will just be as p2w as the RU version

Right when I read that post 2 things came to mind...

Huehuehue, and all those Something-Pride guilds from some parts of the world that just like to tell everyone where they're from in every game (filling up most of chat).
