I'm rather surprised that Square Enix is willing to put up with that legislative mess.

Hopefully this means banning chinese IPs from the international servers (I know it won't stop gold sellers, but one more wall is better than nothing), and more revenue for the game, that will bring around more content.

Producer Hiromichi Tanaka tweeted about this yesterday. As a term of service, Chinese sourced IPs will be subject to a regional IP block, due to regional service being offered. Granted, there will always be proxies as a workaround, but that's the long and short of it.

Oh that's awesome, noticed that tweet, but looks like I translated it incorrectly. Good to hear :D

But yeah, unfortunately every chinese gamer learns to use a proxy before he learns to use a keyboard... Still. One block is better than none.

Of course they're willing to go through the legislative mess, they need to look everywhere to find people willing to pay for this terrible game.

So, the fatigue system wasn't just targeted at the Korean gamers after all. No surprise there.
