    They probably don't understand Korean or Chinese language tho and prefer a language they can understand like English etc. They need to make some good game publishing companies for North and West Asia (aka Russia+ and Middle East Countries). They seem like an untapped market.

    There are english patches available for those, I'm pretty sure.

    I'm not sure if this discussion is allowed here, though. VPNs and getting a Korean/Chinese account are pretty involved and usually official sites are against this topic.

    I have no information regarding Nexon's plans to add more service regions in the future, but please do not consider using a VPN to bypass region blocks as this is a violation of the Terms of Service.

    I find this hilarious... what is Nexon going to do? Block them from the game if they find out? Lmao what a joke.

    It's considered tampering with the game. AKA hacking. Most games that are in certain regions only do not allow vpns. Another reason they do this is so they cater to the audiences they have selected to cater to. They are not meant to be played outside the area. Just like how NA played KMS2 it isn't allowed to be played there. The only ways to get inside where through ways that were against the rules. To answer your question though then yes they would just block them from the game from further playing it.

    It's considered a third party program, so yeah VFM are kind of obligated to advise against it.

    From Maplestory Tech Q&A:


    A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a method used to add security and privacy to private and public networks, like WiFi Hotspots and the Internet.

    VPN is considered a third party program, therefore, it is a violation of our Terms of Use. We suggest refraining from using VPN to play our games. Using a VPN may lead to the following consequences:

    Permanent Ban
    Unable to assist with item recovery
    Unable to connect to our games

    To answer your question though

    It was rhetorical, pointing out the alternative to maybe getting blocked is already being blocked.
