This is just happened. “California passes strictest online privacy law in the country”
Will take effect in 2020
Does it mean we are doomed?

:p_cry:  Camp / Vmod , should have post something here and claim , there no plan of closing the server or something ...   

:p_swt: You cant really blame others , if you didn't even give us the answer ...    :hmm:  so i just wait   :yawn: and wait .... 

:p_sick: Im the type of people who doesn't gamble on a losing game , but if this really true ? 2 years later then the game bye x2 ?

:p_sleep: Then im just become even more .... casual then before lol (ranking = from hardcore drop to casual gamer)  sad right ?

:p_conf: Without an answer ? is everyone guess ....   Is better to let them explain this to us (please dont said you dunno)  

:p_smile: Would be nice if the server last till 2200 , anyway dont just lock or delete the thread ? peoples deserve to know the truth. 

:p_love: If you tell me a good news ?  then i can spent ''meow'' money freely ....   :ani_meow:

You do know what happen with euro right ?
We never know why WP can’t comply with euro regulation
We don’t know if wp using our data or resell them. So this will affect us indirectly you should read more news instead of iro forum everyday lol

Their stocks have been going up pre-2006 since the introduction of OCP. I would imagine they will cash out once the gravy train runs out.

They can change their policies according to the new law.

Problem with GDPR was that WP did not have offices in EU to comply with said regulations (iirc), not that they were unwilling to update terms of service.

vMods cannot speak for the company on this issue. We are not employees and this is a WP situation far above us. I've brought this up to staff members but they have not spoken here yet so there is probably a reason.

Please be aware spreading fear and doom and gloom about topics such as WP closing or servers shutting down without evidence is not allowed. There is no immediate expectation of servers closing and there should be no panic of fear. Continued fear mongering will result in post deletions and if the same players keep at it there will be temporary suspensions from the forums.

 

Below is me as a Player talking about this issue, not vmod voice.
I'm sure the company will need to review the law and see what's up before any comments, and those will probably need to be reviewed by Korea Gravity and the great wait of information while we all sit here twiddling our thumbs begins.

But this does NOT look like a new GDPR situation to me. I think iRO will be fine.

Well that law just passed like couple hours after I posted in this forum so GM probably still reviewing this matter. Gonna take time.
I guess one of benefits of keep reading news everyday.
Also is there a reason to move this to off topic since this is kinda game related issue?

I did not move it, it may have been moved because it was about the law and which may not mean anything about RO.

I moved the topic because it is off-topic content unrelated to iRO.

Should there be changes to WP policies in that regards it will be announced through the appropriate channels. As mentioned by fellow Coconut, we cannot have a say in this, logically speaking, the law was passed really recently. Law matters take months, if not years to settle. FYI, GMs do not handle law related content.

I don’t see why this is unrelated to iro? Iro is online game and that law is about online privacy where wp have our data. So this is really related with our game. This is some kind of regulation where in the future estimated around 2020 will be take place. I just don’t want we ended up with euro GPDR lol

There shouldn't be any issue here, its a ffing online game...they just need to edit their policy and disclose where they share our information (if they are sharing it and want to continue to do so) you and me just have to be notified where and to whom they share it.

 

So the main issue here is that upon knowing how WP uses our information, is if your still willing to play the game or not. Simple as that...

 

They can't shutdown online services(games...etc.) there's a significant amount of tax dollars from that sector....
