Ragnarok Online 2 IP Restriction Imposed on the Eve of Open Beta
Were you one of the many fans waiting to jump into Ragnarok Online 2 when it hits open beta tomorrow? If so, thereÂs a bit of bad news about that from Asiasoft today. A recent announcement from the publisher revealed that due to licensing agreements with developer Gravity, only players in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam will be able to take part.
We are happy to announce that OBT will start tomorrow, 3rd January 2013, at 1300 HRS (+8 GMT)! That is less than 19 hours from now!
However, it's with our deepest apologies that we announce we will not be able to provide the RO2 game service to players outside of our optimised countries - Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam - due to our licence agreement with the game's developer, Gravity Co., Ltd.
These aforementioned licence terms will take full effect from the start of OBT tomorrow and we deeply apologise for any inconvenience caused to players. We are extremely grateful for the support you have shown RO2 so far and we thank you again for being a part of this journey. Thank you all!
Needless to say the masses on Facebook are not happy about the decision.
Stay tuned and weÂll update you with additional news on availability in other regions as it becomes available. In the meantime, tell us what you think below.
