Thread: TERA to IP Ban entire Africa - a worrying trend?

  1. #1

    Default TERA to IP Ban entire Africa - a worrying trend?

    MMO Tera announced they're banning Russia, Africa, and all other commonwealth second class species from playing their game via IP due to fears of account fraud and tampering. Is this the start of yet another dark age for the empire of ZA's gaming community?

    I suggest you tweet as much hate as you can to these bastards, their game sucks ass, but that's not the point, my worry is that it catches on..

    If you look at the twitter links in the first post, you'll see that they are no longer restricting IP's

    Their NA servers aren't. Do they have servers in the EU that might?

    First of all that post is 3 months old, pre game release and you got to remember that En Masse handles US and Frogster handles EU.

    When I signed up Frogster stated that members who were members of or currently are members of the commonwealth of nations (Used to be called British Commonwealth) will be the ones with access to their servers. South Africa is a ex member so we fall into their statement.

    We'll be fine.

    Has anyone recently been able to connect to the Tera servers, US or UK.

    I have given up recently - Using Unotelly also doesn't allow me to connect.

    Thoughts?

    Use UnoVPN, not the DNS service. Unotelly is meant for services like Netflix, Hulu, iPlayer etc.

    Should work. I've circumvented IP restrictions many times with VPN's just fine.
