    Easy . From the ip you can find the isp.
    An isp in greece is outside north america.

    Such technology is already used by the porn industry and by the goverment to stop you from getting files that you should not get.

    An easier example is neotrace.

    What will happen is .
    You pay everywhere for the game but it is free to play online only in north america.

    This actually makes sense in a perverted way liked it made sense when interplay canceled fallout3 to publish fobos 1 and fobos2 faster.
    Meaning :
    Its all for the money


    They do not have the infastucture to support it outside north america.

    By the way, the GameBanshee interview answers your question pertaining to the subscription. Moral of the story? Learn to read.

    There you go.

    Their website has since been updated and reads as follows:

    Thank you . I was kind of hungry.

    By the way Exitium pray that Guild Wards dont have the same protection that Sacret has ( Vob + Custom) that forces you to uninstall cd software.

    Because if it does then we may not play it after all.

    It'll probably have the regular copy protection that goes with most games (e.g. DIablo 2) but I doubt they'll be dumb enough to use something like Vob for a 100% multiplayer game like Ascaron did.

    Is it actually an MMO?

    It sounds from what i've read in this thread like the players themselves will act as servers for small parties, just like diablo 2.

    Doesn't mean an MMO can't be player server driven. MMO just means there should be alot of people on the servers. Maybe they're going to come up with some way for even lower bandwidth servers to host hundreds of players.

    There isn't much to cover at the moment - the only currentr Guild Wars news is the 2x screenshots they put up each week and you guys don't report media. If you're going to cover one MMO, might as well cover others - there's already a few people in this thread interested in World of Smurfs.

    World of Smurfs? Are you referring to Warcraft, Dhruin? Do I sense a certain dislike here?

    WoW might be the best MMO ever -- I wouldn't know because I only follow them as much as needed for our newsposting -- but WoW's uber-colourful smurfy graphics aren't my taste. Probably doesn't help that Blizzard's stuff hasn't ever grabbed me (other than original Diablo). I *nearly* worked up some enthusiasm about UXO but those cartoonish grahpics look silly. Take a look at a Phoda fighting and try not to laugh.

    I like a sense of "realism" and grandeur - Dark and Light or Dragon Empires looks nice.

    You are talking about a game that hasn't been released yet, right?

    The reason I'm gonna be playing World of Warcraft is pretty simple: Blizzard's making it. I can expect not to get a horrible "SOE-esque" experience with those guys, at least. From what little I've heard about the beta, they've got some pretty nifty team-based gameplay going on, and that's a huge plus especially since I''m not willing to dole out 10 dollars a month for some crappy other mmorpg with too few players online, and zero tech support.

    I'm surprised you even considered it worthy of any attention to begin with. It's like Asheron's Call 2, only more pathetic.

    UXO looks pretty bad. I don't know why that game is getting any attention at all considering how similar it's going to be to, as Rosh said, Asheron's Call 2 (which is completely inferior to the original, from what I've seen). It'd be one thing to give attention to a game like World of Warcraft, which has a ton of trade skills and the fact that it's being made by Blizzard, but UXO looks to me like another one of EA's failed attempts into the mmorpg scene.

    UO was their only success and it all went downhill from there.
