Europe IP block!

Greetings European WonderKing players,

First of all, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone for displaying your continuous support and affection to WonderKing. Your feedback was imperative in our efforts to develop and improve the game for better service and we would like to thank all the European players who helped to make WonderKing the great experience that it is.

Although we would like to continue to share all our success with everyone, we’re gravely disheartened to inform you that contractual obligations are forcing our hand with another publisher in the *European Territories. We have been notified that we are no longer allowed to service WonderKing to players in Europe. Starting on January 28, 2010 12PM (PST), existing and newly incoming WonderKing players from Europe will not be eligible to play on our servers and will subsequently be IP-blocked from Ndoors’ WonderKing servers. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you during this change.

We will sorely miss everyone that was part of our great community, especially the players we had personal relationships with. We hope to see you again in one of our existing titles, Atlantica and Luminary: Rise of the Goonzu, along with additional titles on the way as we’re scheduled to release this year, so please continue to stay tuned for Ndoors news. Thank you again for your support and understanding.

WonderKing Team

*European Territories shall mean all countries of Europe, e.g. including, but not limited to, countries belonging to the European Union (in particular Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, ) as well as Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, Switzerland and Turkey.

This doesn't effect me, but it sucks for European people since the only European version is German WK which is only in German. :py06:

Wtf, this is crap, my only friend is European T_T

What the hell is this.
Letting us play all cbt's and obt, and suddenly announcing this. ;_;

This is extremely lame, I wish they wouldn't do this. :/

Globalastro 01-27-2010 11:53 PM

They dont have a choice in the matter. The publisher of the German wonderking waited until shortly before nDoors would go into full release to take advantage of this part of the contract.

In all honesty, I feel that the german WK has no right to claim non german speaking countries, but dont hold it against nDoors. nDoors staff had been constantly negotiating with seveinone to try to get this to not happen.

Very disappointing, I'm glad I'm not living in Europe anymore. The GMs tried hard to stop this though, but like Globalastro said, it wasn't possible with their situation. :/

Wonderking Germany is appearently making an English version for non German speaking people

Dear European players,

welcome to the European Version of Wonderking. We have had several questions about an English Version of the game, and here is your answer:

We will be releasing an English Client within the next 2 months and are working hard to deliver it as soon as possible.

We understand your eagerness and we are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Your Wonderking Team

At least it's better then not having an English version but still, it's 2 months for others :py22:

Exactly, It would have been much more professional if they had waited until the english server was at least in beta.

But at the same time, i guess that maybe they were trying to keep eu players on the NA server from leveling too high? who knows.
