Coming from the land down under I would like the opportunity to be involved in such competitons yet it is always by far applicable to the US only. When I just read the codes are based only on the North American servers I am thinking, heck I am playing on these North American Serversn, why am I being told I have to dip out..
Sure the EQII game is based there, yet Curse wishes us to go Premium to have a chance at these offers. I was Premium for a fair while, was considering renewing as I just picked up an all station pass for Sony games, but have let it lapse as really the opportunities are not beneficial unless you live with the US borders.I have enjoyed the services provided over time, but I also like the little promotions that come along and, again more so, the Oceanic Pacific areas just don't get a look in.
It would be interesting to see how the promos balance out for being in US and outside.
Unfortunately, it is up to these companies, not Curse, to provide keys that can be used for non US people or non NA based clients. You don't see this on the front end but often companies set up IP blocks to force you into certain clients. For example-there is an F2P sci-fi based MMO called Bounty Hounds. If you google it, one big hit takes you to a Euro site, the other takes you to an NA site. The first one I did was the Euro one, downloaded it and found out I was IP blocked coming from the US. I won an auction for an expansion pack to LOTRO a few years ago and that wound up being a British expansion and I couldn't use it. Curse is only capable of dealing the cards being handed to us. Too often people eye us as being the problem but unfortunately, it's actually these software houses that are the problem.
Ok not sure if this is the right spot or not but i actually am in the US. Alabaster Alabama to be exact and i cannot see any of the contests i have already signed up for the 2 (D3 mouse and headset and MC model) is this some mess up on my part or a website glitch
