What do you think of US sanctions lock Iranian gamers out of World of Warcraft?

Aug 29, 2012 2:53 am
I just read the news that US govenment locked the players in Iran and then they can't enter WoW anymore. Because United States trade restrictions and economic sanction laws prohibit Blizzard from doing business with residents of certain nations, including Iran.

Blizzard could do nothing about it and then can't even send the money back the the Iranian gamers bcz of the economic sanction.

I think IP block is annoying enough and this news sounds unfair for the gamers. They love to play WoW but are forced to quit it. Why should govenment decisions affect the gamers?

I feel that it is quite unfortunate for those players that are affected. However, at this point there isn't much that can be done.

    Well, like Aquaman47 said...not much can be done. Blizzard is a US based company, so I assume they have to abide by US sanctions. It is sad for Iranians, but it is more because of their government than anything. Too bad the citizens have to suffer for it.

    Well i thin that this would bi a discrimination... You can't have all the Asian guys playing wow and no Iranians. Just because of a simple misunderstanding
