    Hello,

    Do NOT do this s**t as you did with BDO. Players, located around Russia do NOT want to play with Russian players, simply because Russia has a very bad relationship with another countries around, especially Ukraine and Georgia. These countries are still having wars to Russia and nobody wants to play on Russian community from these countries. I don't care who is going to purchase licenses to host in that region, but before you will give a license, take a look around and make sure, you are doing well. Game seems very promising and I'm pretty sure, from these 2 countries, you will have a lot of players, but if you will do region lock again, you will lose that region and only Russian players will play.

    Good lucks!

    If I'm not mistaken, PA were actually the ones who decided on the region lock. Hence, why Kakao was only allowed to publish in certain places, and other publishers handled other regions.

    I dont care, if you will lock for russians. I only want to Ukraine and Georgia were allowed to play on EU servers.
    and I want to Georgia and Ukraine were taking in under EU region, not under CIS. we're NOT member of CIS!! we don't want to play with CIS players!

    It's not a ****, it's just reality with agreements including exploitations rights obviously more expansive if you add more regions in which you can legally publish the game.

    Prettymuch this. They find a publisher (who does translation and things like that) who can publish in a region, and to ensure that the devs can't just go "Actually we're going to have someone else publish the game in that area too", they sign an agreement. If the devs and publishers were a part of the same company it'd be one thing, but in the cases that they aren't, region locks are understandable.

    I guess, its normal to pay money for your costumers comfort. I'm not only me, many of us want to avoid russian community.

    While I would like to not see region lock, its a possibility. As both Laguna and Maevynn have said, because of how the publishing and developing is separate region lock is understandable.

    yeah,but imo such things developers have to ask to publishers to not do. in my situation, this game loses 2 very active countries, where mmorpg games are very popular.

    I'm against region lock as I'm against any form of censorship. However ... everyone who writes in Cyrillic should be insta banned.

    Not a fan of region locking but it usually has very good reasons if it is in place and it's less about preference of publishers.

    There should be english-only restriction for global, trade etc. chat. Russians are not the only problem... even my countrymen (im from Poland) can be annoying AF!

    in my case, being annoying isnt a big deal. there is a bigger problem, then this. I don't want to play or spend time with people, being racist and calling my people bad. Georgia, same as Ukraine is part of Europe and NOT Russia. why should I not be able to play on EU?

    I know region-lock may have a bad connotation but it's atleast minimizing the phenomenon where players arrived in mass and usually speak in their native language leading to a chain reaction. Without region-lock, people will often talk in their own language and others will simply follow until we enter some form of anarchy. I'm not saying this could not happen with region-lock but I'm pretty sure the impact would be smaller and more controllable.

    I believe that it's not possible to smoothly regulate a channel, in fact if we get a closer look at BDO we can pretty much see how untamable the Roleplay channel has become, how many announces we have in multiple languages outside of NA/EU ones. Assuming we're going to have the same server shape including one NA and one EU, I don't think that it's something we can truely fix but only an issue that we can reduce.

    But I can read it (don't talking about understanding) and type it on Google translate.

    I don't know if there should be region lock or not, because i can't say wether is good or not...

    Problems with Chat Speech could be easily solved if there would be chat channels for Countries (example: German Chat automatically joined if you are from Germnay, French Chat Channel auto-join if you are from France and so on - with the option to join every Country Chat, because some people speaks more than one language or has another native language and live in another country) and in other public/global Channels should english be the language which is spoken - Every Player should get a Message with the Terms of Chat Restriction the first Time he/she opens the Chat (and then find it in Options), which has to be confirmed from the player (if you not confirm, you can't write in public Chats - only in the Country Chats - till you Confirm the Restriction) - Problem solved.

    I can see both sides of this, but personally I don't want there to be a region-lock, just because I have a really good friend that lives in Indonesia and has been playing on NA servers in other games for a long time and speaks English well.

    I will understand if the game is region locked though. There seems to be a lot of international fans for the game already though.

    Well, right below where we're typing we know that it may be the case already:
