Aeria Seeks to Un-Block Euro IPs

Aeria Seeks to Un-Block Euro IPs - MMORPG.com

Aeria Games is currently leading a campaign to unblock European IPs for their Beta test of Dream of Mirror Online.  Originally, they allowed Europeans into the beta but were asked to block the IPs by GameTribe, DOMO's European publisher, and SoftStar, the game's developer, upsetting some European players.  IP blocking is not an uncommon feature in regional publishing deals.

Aeria Games has and will always strive to build an open community for all of our members. We do not believe in or support IP blocking for any of our games (except to protect against hacking or for other security precautions).

During the past few weeks, we have heard many of your concerns and have held intense discussions with SoftStar, the developer of DOMO, and GameTribe, the European publisher, regarding our philosophy of open access to all and our opposition to any IP blocking. Unfortunately, despite our strong protest, GameTribe has requested (and SoftStar has agreed) that we start blocking certain European IPs prior to the start of our Open Beta.

We regretfully inform you that we will be forced to start blocking the European IPs below at the start of our Open Beta. This policy is only for DOMO and does not affect other games. We are very disappointed with this outcome, and will continue to convince GameTribe and Softstar of the need for an open DOMO community. We do not have a choice in this matter and the only course of action is for us, with your support, to persuade GameTribe and SoftStar to reverse their policy.
