Tartaros to ban foreigners.

I got an email this morning about MK changing their “privacy policy” and game policy. I mean usually the first thing I do when this happens is see if there’s any information regarding a foreigner block. Lo and behold:

海外からの接続に対する方針
当社は、「ライセンス会社名」より日本国内のみでのサービスのライセンスを受けているため、海外からの接続は禁止させていただいております。

Translation:

Regarding foreign connections:
Based on the license for this game, which is meant for Japan only, foreign connections are restricted.

Now it’s possible that this will be on a basis of “if someone complains about gaijins we will ban them” sort of deal rather than doing what Gamepot did with Pangya Japan….but this is basically what Prius Online did. This means that at any time, they can block foreigners. I guess I might as well uninstall the client now. At this point even if I come back, the fact that we can be banned at anytime it feels like a waste to even hope to continue to play in the future.

  1. Because the China-Japan relationship worsen? Or because a certain US company got the license? Or they found the hackers/gold-farmers use non-JP IP?

  2. Bell> Indeed 🙄

    Ham> Could be all 3! I mean a ton of hackers/bots have been appearing for all we know they could be using chinese vpns or whatever to do their RMTing. I highly doubt a US company will pick up tartaros. I’ll probably login within the next couple days, take some memorable photos and uninstall the game.

  3. Indeed, if they ban non-JP IPs. That would would leave very less options for those bots. But maybe they can still use the local DSL with dynamic IP.

    I doubt they would use Chinese VPNs, since it’s not free. They would use the free VPNs first.

  4. honestly it’s not sweat off my back considering the crashing still hasn’t been fixed and doesn’t seem like MK has it on the top of their priority list 🙄
