Further IP-Block requested by Tahadi Games | Middle East

Dear Ladies & Gentlemen,

We already addressed IP blockades in the past where we took great care to explain the reason behind it. While we at Frogster Online Gaming do not and will never force an IP block on you, the actual holder of a license is able to do so by right of law.

Therefore we regret to inform players of the Middle East that that following areas have been requested by Tahadi Games to be blocked from our side:

  • Algeria
  • Bahrain
  • Djibouti
  • Egypt
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Jordan
  • Kuwait
  • Lebanon
  • Libya
  • Morocco
  • Oman
  • Palestine
  • Qatar
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Syria
  • Tunisia
  • United Arab Emirates
  • Yemen
  • Sudan
  • Mauritania

Unfortunately we cannot offer any support to transfer characters or accounts from our side to Tahadi Games.

We understand that there are quite some players affected by this blockade. All we can offer you is a suggestion to address your issue on the forums of the respective publisher.

I'm not affected by this, but am still angered by the fact that this wasn't announced earlier. Middle Eastern players have not been able to log in for about a week now, and yet no one seemed to have any clue what was happening.

Didn't you (Frogster/Runewaker etc) learn from the Turkey IP ban that you can't do things this way?

This didn't magically happen with no human intervention; someone would have had to manually edit the files/tables to block ME IP's. Surely the decent thing to do would have been to tell us what was happening.

Not only ME players are affected by this. Anyone with ME guildmembers etc is now affected.

/ending now before I start raging.

it's not the first time... maybe it's time frogster will publish a list of countries they have the publishing rights and which ones they will keep... within a year it now happened more than 4 times that players couldn't play the game they played (and some even spend money on it)
Server: Macantacht - Guild: Acceptance - Character: Flixxxerr - Mage 61 / Priest 56

Wanna join Acceptance? /w Slrig, Peterthethird, Masterable, Phenomx or Flixxxer ingame

An announcement of which countries YOU WILL KEEP would be nice. Too save people from wasting their money and 1 day later you decide to block them.

Hello,

We don't like this situation neither, and like Silberfuchs told it, we have never asked for an IP block.
But spreading false information like you do will not help anyone here.
The only IP blocks affecting the EU servers are Turkey and Middle East, this means only two times and not "more than four times" like you wrote it.

Lol if this was a way to force me play the Lousy Runes of Might, then no I'm going off to either WoW or Allods, at least they are loyal to their gamers.

And I thought that ROM was the best MMO ever >:(

and yeah,

Do you not sell them the rights? Like, when you negotiate, so surely that is part of the process, which you then agree to at that time? Or did you never own the rights to your own game at the start? From what I see you give them this when you sell them the rights, so yes, Frogster does have to accept some fault for this ban..pleas ecorrect me iof I am wrong

Sorry to all my Arab friends in game, we'll miss you :(

I don't really blame Frogster, it is the Tahadi games to be blamed for greed of players, I mean they only got one server, one channel, and around 200 active players. Like I'm going to play Runes of Might.

We can still play ROM with proxy softwares right?

Frogster is the publisher. Runewaker is the Developer. Runewaker owns the game and sells rights to publishers to publish the game in certain countries.

Frogster don't really have any say in what IP bans they have to implement, but they should have told us a week ago when they did implement these bans.

Maybe there is a good idea, as Makkelele said before, just show us a list of the countries u hold the licenses for, so ppl at least know, if they can be sure that they wont get banned

Maybe at least they could let us access US forums, I remember reading some really useful guides there, Tahadi is still new, and their forum is kinda empty :/.

We didn't sell any rights, Runewaker did. We only hold the license in all Europe Countries except Turkey as far as I know.

Ok sorry to Frogster then, my confusion, I'll just stay mad at you for all the bug fails and complete lack of repairs/patches, but that's for other threads. Thanks for the reply Achoore, and the fella up a bit before I saw, forgot name though hehe

There is way to get over IP blocks but to make it nice and clean it costs some money in month :/
Temporarily retired.

Are you sure your account is suspended? A friend's account from Egypt does work logged on from England, so I think it shoudl only be IP issue, not account issue.

Doesn't Frogster own the game servers? Who set the IP ban? Frogster or Runewaker?
