Why IP block?


39 posts in this topic

Posted

I am from India and  a lot of Indian play MMORPG, I am confused about Daum Europe act like where they get License they allow to play and rest countries are IP block but why? I can understand RU, cause they already have their own Game, but why All the world. There is a lot of countries, they don't even care about license system. Like in India if you are selling Physical copy or setting up a server then you need an approval from authorities for sale. Another thing why Daum block IP by their own when they are not installing servers in every country, this is a nation's headache what to allow or not to their citizen, if content are not allowed in specific country then country restrict access not company.

*** Sorry abt my English

As you said yourself. YOU are from India! the reason for ip block is because this is eu/na  is India located there? no. why people from different continents take the resources that can support the eu/na?  why not join the jp/kr servers or idk

In every online games (except dedicated server) we use EU server. I am not saying open IP for India, I am just stating license process and like here other country also treat online service same.

Because most other online games don't have IP blocks. The IP block id due to Pearl Abyss not wanting to sell/rent the required licences to DAUM.

As ggeorgg said, NA/EU is for NA/EU. Oceania has recently been allowed to play, while Turkey and ex-USSR countries don't have access.

dont look at this with the license phrase. Look at this logical. India has one billion people in population. more than eu! and probably na itself. so u guy would need a whole new banch of servers just for u. how would india fit into our servers? i wont speak about maintenance and costs. just with simplicity and logic

jaad i am not mad O.o and the ip block isnt because the world hates you. i try to explain to you their logic behind the ip block. server traffic? lag? bad connections? look it up (latin america wants to join in as well) so you will have at least half the world in eu/na servers. i dont want this. not because i hate you but because too much lag and traffic.

From a decade we sharing EU server for almost all online game and according to you BDO Server become unstable when we join in. My recent MMO was Elder Scroll Online and they have only 2 Servers NA and EU and Their EU server cover whole Europe and  Asia (including Russia, Korea and Japan in BDO they have their own server )

Elder Scrolls Online was one of the worst MMOs with one of the worst launches in gaming history. I have never seen a game fail and under-deliver so hard, only Watchdogs comes close but we're comparing apples and oranges. ESO launch had constant server overload, downtime and queues. IN comparison I have been on the BDO RU server since its launch and I haven't seen a more smoother start. Given than Russia is not that much smaller than India i think its a big achievement, given that the MMO and overall gaming community in Russia is huge

They might accept other payment methods other than just credit card.

I don't know for PayPal, but Skrill and Paysafecard both contain information about the owners country. I know ways in which you might be able to bypass this, but it would be better to not give people wierd ideas.

I can not understand, why you block Ukraine?

I have many friends in Europe, but there is none in Russia, no one in Armenia, Kazakhstan, etc, so i want play with my friends. In addition, my connection on the Russian server 2 times worse than on any gaming servers in Europe, since I'm much closer to Amsterdam than to Moscow. Besides, you said that based on the geographical position, so you need to know that Ukraine is located in the central part of Eastern Europe at the crossroads of transport routes from Europe to Asia and from the Scandinavian countries in the Mediterranean region - you can read it anywhere, on ever geographical site, in every book! So why!?, why do we have to go to the Russian server !?

In any case, I'd better forget about the Black Desert, than go play on Russian server, seem Daum is not interested in the opinion of the fans of the game. It's a pity...

im confused. i thought the reason DAUM are IP blocking because ITS NOT UP TO THEM. "All territories above are in accordance with the agreement with the developer Pearl Abyss." So are they just only complaining and not even reading any of the reasons why?

Butthurt people being stupid and blind is why they can't seem to understand that it's NOT up to Daum. But hey... apparently this is what we get as a BDO community.. 
I vote for an IQ test when purchasing!

paypal safest way and it automatically converts currencies and sends to the person your buying from. but paypal isnt avalaible in some countires.

People should stop being so rude, maybe for some people it's the first time they are having IP block so they  don't understand why they are blocked + many are feeling down cuz of the IP block so.. just let them be, if you see thread with "IP block" and u don't like it just ignore or wait till they close the thread  (dunno if they will but yeah).
