"RU disables manual region selection starting May 4th, introduced automatic IP tracking. This measure is introduced as a basis for experiments in  pricing discrimination"

 

Good or bad for our players from other countries that play on our server?

Considering that I'll be in Abu Dhabi over the summer, a move like that might just screw me.

I dunno, seems like something to do with the premium shop more than being able to access servers across the world from a non-native region.

Looks like it could potentially make stuff more expensive or less expensive for some players on the server.

It applies to the Premium shop:

 

1. You can play on any server you want 

2. The Premium Shop you have access to will be determined by the IP you are playing from

3. This is being done so that you see your local currency in the Premium Shop

I think it's irrelevant.

 

From the reddit thread:

You are right. Native russian speaker here. Basically you can play on whatever server you like but your premium shop will be always in currency of the country you live in (they gonna check the IP you are playing from).

 

it just means if we play on SEA server, we will pay NA prices.  Could be a good thing for the more tech savvy.  If you can disguise your IP to look like somewhere with lower prices, you might be able to get ships at a discount.

thats a bad thing for me. everytime i go on the premium shop it tries to tell me things in Zim dollars, nevermind the fact that the zim dollar died 8 years ago and we've been using USD ever since.

Yep also want to stay here. On the other hand: NA shop is the most expensive.

You'd think NA was most expensive but those in the thread argue the EU server is most expensive... if it works as most folks "think" then they'll have to do the appropriate conversion to local funds at the time of purchase. 

 

This could go either way for them... think of tourism... people travel from the US of A to the EU.

 

If the exchange rate favors US of A traveler, they'll spend a bit more freely, do more things. If the exchange rate favors the EU Server - that is it is more expensive to buy something on the EU server than it is on the NA server, the US of A traveler may not travel at all. If they do travel, they will spend less in local funds. 

 

The only reason I can see for implementing something along these lines has to do with the potential levies of governments - taxes.

But I can actually communicate with my team without having seven Dictionaries next to me. I am willing to pay a bit more if it means that my gameplay experience is more enjoyable.

Use a VPN, non-issue.

 

Using this will it now be possible to bargain hunt the best prices, load up VPN, log into my NA account and access the cheapest shops?

Assuming it ever happens to our server, possibly. Right now they're just implementing it on the RU server to test it out. I would assume though that if it goes well in their opinion, that they could implement it across the other servers as well.

The ships usually cost me about 10% less if I could buy them on the EU server. I paid €22.30 for the Duca here but I would have paid €19 at EU.Their bundles offer most of the time more then the NA ones for the same price. When you get 7 days premium here as and extra you get usually 30 days at EU. Same with gold.
