Also, there’s not a difference. Direct quote was " it’s terrible spending money to get nothing " and that’s what yoz jar was canned. So if that’s the case, what about buying pheons to fail stones and having nothing? Its the exact same thing.
Again both Techtus and Sogeki have to admit to their ignorance about gaming
Players from Belgium/Netherlands can’t buy Crown boxes since 2020 in ESO, but they can still play the game itself, and in case other countries come up with similar laws, they’ll just disable loot boxes in those countries as well.
Netherlands actually gave a green light on Lost Ark AFTER the game decided to not include Yoz Jar in the game. Until then - the game was banned in both Netherlands and Belgium. More countries in EU are taking up same laws against loot boxes now and all games including such boxes will be banned.
AGS have clearly stated they are not ready to have different versions of the game in the same regions. Including South America and EU. Simply because the auction house AND ingame store work region-wide. Not country-wide.
Secondly - Games such as ESO were forced to change their original policies of having loot boxes in the game where such practices were not allowed. And AGS can not do that in EU/NA/SA version because they are only publishers of the game. Not developing the game. They can’t change the coding even if they wanted since the game is created by a Korean developer that created region-wide service for just one country to start with.
Card Packs can be gained ingame by playing and are therefor not ingame store only items.
Yoz Jar can ONLY be bought through ingame store and therefor falls under laws of loot boxes in some EU countries. Ofc this can be changed in EU/NA by allowing it to drop ingame. But the Korean players would go crazy since they did not have that feature. So SG will not accept that.
