hello,

just curious if there will be an IP ban at your upcoming games RO2, like asiasoft which banned a few country because of developer agreement?

thank you very much

Most likely there will be no IP bans because Gravity LLC is a subsidiary of Gravity Co, and hosts all their games internationally. So far no Gravity LLC game has had an IP ban. The major method used to localize regions from the US servers is purely related to distance. Playing from the Philippines will result in a large ping and difference in currency which could be problematic. In a region like South East Asia where the distance is not so great between Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, China, South Korea, and Japan there might be a need to separate communities with an ip ban in order to deal with that countries business regulations and maintain contract agreements.

From the Ragnarok Online 2 Facebook page. "We won't be able to service players in the South East Asia areas. This is due to territory agreements with the partners that are servicing those territories." This comment was a response to someone asking the same question.

Gravity does not allow some players around the world join in if they are too close to certain local servers.Does sound like IP ban to me.

Not giving a player access to the game based on where they live on a question is not the same as an IP-ban. An IP-ban blocks traffic from a certain range of ports associated to server infrastructure of a certain nation. I don't recommend someone from South East Asia to play on the US servers. The effects of distance will make the gameplay unenjoyable, and the currency differences could pose a problem making full use of a title. In capitalism, there is a way to force bad hosts to do a better job.

would like to talk about the release of Ragnarok 2, so I learned there BLOCK IP for Brazil, but frankly I do not understand is the idea that you try to pass, put the flag of the country of the site you put in time to distribute the game will simply ignore an entire community?, sad to see humans do this kind of discrimination in a nation honestly am disappointed with the company, so why not just make servers comprehensive targeted only to parents in case a server Brazilian, what you are doing and a lack of respect for the parents, I think they really put this block for BR's should take the flag site and you put this block in all the services that you offer. no more.
