Just like many others, I’m still region blocked, even though I’m located in eastern Canada. I live in an apartment complex, so getting a new IP is not going to fly.
My current workaround is to use Geforce Now, which I’ve paid $10 USD to get the 6-hour play session instead of 1 hour. My static Valtan Hard raid is coming up soon, and I do not want to miss it. This effectively made Lost Ark a subscription-based game for me. Paying for Geforce Now was my choice, so I’m not very salty about it. At least I can play the game.
What I’m salty about, is the fact that these region blocks are doing NOTHING to bots, but it’s only hurting real legitimate players. Why do AGS and SGR continue to ban IPs when it’s clearly not working? Both companies refuse to implement such a low-hanging fruit solution of hiring temporary in-game GMs to ban bots. I do understand that a scalable solution is required in the long run, but continuing to enforce these blocks in the mean time isn’t the right way. Especially when this solution is only hurting real players.
It’s been 3 days now, and I hope to god this doesn’t turn into months.
GeForce Now is my next step, especially the longer this remains an issue. It’s very concerning that these problems started back in late-April/early-May, and are ongoing, for some. I’m here freaking out over a couple days, so I can only imagine their frustration. Ohh wait, they probably quit the game because there was no other option provided by AGS. NICE JOB Amazon!
Trolling? I’ve already flagged this to the mods. How is ban evasion trolling? Is it any different from the in-game version of fleeing a warrant? The guys IP is banned and instead of talking to support he’s in the forum’s professing his innocence
Its funny, you’re the only one throwing around insults so I do have to wonder which of us is the insecure one.
Anyway, people only come to the forums for sympathy but if this guy wants a fix then he’s going to have to contact Support at some point. If he has nothing to fear then I’m sure he’ll be playing again soon.
