(Source) Another piece of bad news following the lawsuit between NCsoft and En Masse Entertainment, all Asian IPs will be blocked from the official North American servers. Yes, it means that even English-speaking nations such as my country will be blocked. Why does En Masse sees all Asian countries as hackers’ haven? Ain’t there hacking contests held in the Western world as well? I was actually going to get the game since the launch falls on my birthday, but I guess it is a good thing now. Asian players, time to look for another game!
To keep the quality of service high for players within North America we have decided to disable IP addresses from which fraudulent traffic originates. We encourage players in these regions to participate on servers specifically designated for their area.
En Masse will block IPs based on region. Asia, Africa, Russia, and the Middle East are included on the block list. While we appreciate that there are players in these regions who would enjoy playing on En Masse servers, it’s unfortunate that the vast majority of Internet traffic we see from these regions are from cyber-criminals relating to account theft, gold-farming and other hacking behavior.
Services that promise to improve your ping and decrease lag may sound promising, but they are frequently used by hackers and criminals who want to remain anonymous. Although we do not block them by default, a proxy or server host will be blocked if it becomes a popular tool for criminal behavior.
En Masse has a license to operate TERA game servers in North America. This means that if you are in North America, South America, Europe (excluding Russia), and Oceania (Australia, New Zealand, Micronesia, Melanesia, and Polynesia) you can play on En Masse Servers.
