Upon login today I noticed a number of players talking about getting a GM box in the mail, matched almost equally by players wondering why they haven't received one. As part of the latter group I'm curious as to why it's AWOL for me, and whether I should be putting in a support ticket.

Only NA are getting the boxes it seems. Sorry to the EU guys and all, but please try keep the salt to a minimum in this thread, I'm mainly interested in metrics here.

 

Some notes:

I'm playing from Australia, using a VPN to San Jose.

I have a lvl 37 Warrior, lvl 33 Musa and lvl 6 Sorc, all on the Edan server.

 

EDIT: In case it wasn't hilariously obvious enough already, I play on NA.

EDIT2: Looking through the thread, this seems to be affecting players exclusively on the Edan server.

EDIT3: Jouska replies

"Alright, I will be passing this on to the rest of the Team so they can figure out what happened.

Thank you for the replies, I will update once I know more."

Why are you using a vpn? Aussie players can connect freely.

Just wondering.

While it doesn't change the ping at all, game servers tend to be set up to prioritise lower ping connections in their server response times, using a VPN can shave 100ms off of the server response. Typically server response is not factored into a ping display, but on some games in the past such as Wildstar using a VPN made a noticable difference.

Fair enough, I was asking because I was just curious if there was a reason since usually people use VPN's to get around IP restrictions.

Two black stone (weapon) :P

I was hopeful for better, but still totally awesome. Yes, the lag was awful, even d/ced for the first time due to lag, but this gesture of understanding and appreciation completely makes up for it! Thank you!

I don't think I received mine.

 

I thought I deleted it but I'm pretty sure it was a market messaged since I sold something since I've logged off.

Nothing is obvious, hence the thread. You seem to be making a few logical leaps here with very little concrete info to go on, I'd like to find out for sure.

Thanks for your opinion and all but

Homie you answered your own question multiple times. 

You said ''Only NA people seem to be getting it''

So obviously something happened in NA in which people needed to be compensated. 

And maybe people would be nicer if it wasent for your biased poll

 

''I play on EU and it sucks''.  Wtf does that even mean how does it suck to play on EU?
