Probably in the wake of the buy-to-play announcement of Black Desert Online NA and EU, Daum is now beginning to IP block the Korean version of this MMORPG. The idea seems to be blocking players from regions that are already running their own version of Black Desert or may be in the near future, such as North America, Europe, Japan and Russia. In fact, Russia is also blocking foreign IPs now, something that wasn’t planned just a while ago.
This move makes sense as a purely business oriented decision, as Black Desert Online needs to be profitable in every region to keep the servers running. Will this make you wait for the B2P western version or will you still try to keep playing in other regions?
