Does anyone know if NCSoft America will block other countries in other regions for Blade and Soul? I haven't played any of their games in the NA server and would want to know if they had any history of blocking/banning those outside NA. I hope they will be open to most countries and not follow the same stupid decisions of EME/Frogster with TERA NA/EU. I definitely don't want to play in the Korean or Chinese servers since I can't read the language and I don't have a KSSN.

Facts about forum...
Someone will correct you over a trivial grammatical error,and it's usually because they're not intelligent enough to actually come up with a smart argument.
All the class are overpowered except the one you using.

I'd appreciate it if you don't reply with a rhetorical question as if I was ignorant of what the word meant. Even some MMOs that are labeled "international" have certain countries or regions blocked if deemed necessary by the publisher/developer. And you didn't answer my question either.

I don't remember the NA server being labeled "international" recently so I wouldn't know

Also I believe there was confirmation on an EU server so...... I would think maybe they would block Romania?

While they don't usually do it with their games.
I feel it is possible with B&S since it's more Action orientated and poor ping can really affect your gameplay and most people don't understand that and will go away bad-mouthing the game about lag and junk.

Maybe.
Tho i preffer it to don't , since it actually has a very big playerbase and not all the people are from the west , which should result in getting rid of half of the players= no profit

Don't worry they'll have their EU servers as well.
That's if NC EU still exists I think I heard that they closed that down....
Maybe they give it to the same people publishing free Aion over there.

While there may not be constrictions, I feel like playing on a NA server when you may not be near it would only hurt you. That ping has got to hurt :P

haters gonna hate that,the only that labeled "international" are the one company that most people hate that company being miss used of the word thinking that the whole world are only them ..I know there are some of them and they don't deserve the word "Global"

- Let's face it, there will be no SA / ME release for B&S.

- CN, JP and KR have their own servers; so I'm guessing that there will be no Excessive load on NA Server.

- If the quality of the server is great which I think it's going to be, there will be less problems with lag.

- The possibility of NA server being IP Locked is like 55 - 60%.

- In my opinion I don't want it to be IP locked, and if they decided too I hope they'd exclude some countries.

*Our opinions may differ !!!

I do hope that the NA server doesn't block Asia where I'm located. Except maybe China since they have their own server (and to block gold farmers and hackers). I'll just have to wait for NCSoft to announce which countries they'll support outside of NA.

To me it makes more sence, you connect to a server closest to youre current location.
Connecting to a server half pass the world, is just asking for lagg and high ping.

I don't think they will block some countries. As i said, their player base isn't just from NA.
And i don't think people will cry about lag. I usually don't care since i'm solo type i'm playing alone mostly , and i don't pvp.

Seeing as it was made in Korea with Korean culture its player base is clearly not just NA. Getting blocked from international server seems dumb and if I lived in such a country I would be pissed but sadly just because it says international does not mean its international, it really means all major countries or at least most of them.

I hate to be the evil one here but...I kind of hope they /do/ IP block due to the nature of the game. However to offset how inconvenient that'd be for a lot of people (Because then they'd have to suffer waiting for their own release or none at all.) I hope their servers will indeed be powerful enough to support enough countries where ideally ping will only become an issue due to the user's connection rather than a fault of the server. I do not however feel NA should be forced to deal in players that should not be playing on the NA server...because whether you think so or not that does hurt the game.

This isn't to say that I don't want to play with people outside of NA---I have a lot of British and Scottish friends for example. As a matter of fact I'm pretty sure most of the Theieves Den isn't even from NA. xD; Yet I'd really rather not hinder the game-play for others especially since from what I've heard BnS is very ping intensive. It requires a level of consideration to understand /why/ IP blocks happen and /why/ they're necessary.

I certainly won't whine if they do IP block. I've been cut off from playing with my friends from EU before--so I know how to adjust.

Also the company likely to get BnS is GamersFordge if I remember correct, ne? The company in EU?

If you meant gameforge , this is the first and the last game i will play with them developing it.
GameForge sucks.
