Malzahar bundle is out, morgana skin sale is out and a big amount of Europeans are blocked in the store, as we are for some stupid reason not permitted to that action. This bug/problem has existed for quite a while already without any fix or attention, maybe my chances are bigger here.I hope this is not some stupid buisness plan by Riot to leech off money from us as we have to buy stuff raw, without bundles or sales.

I'm from Europe, and have never had any problems buying IP, with neither credit card nor Paypal. I'm not sure why you're having trouble, unless specific countries are blocked? I'm in Denmark.

AFAIK some counties from the Balkans are blocked.
Not sure why.

@Skjald: all baltic countries are BLOCKED from buying RP, for about 2 or 3 weeks already. Now they release bundles and we are harassed because we can't buy anything.

Uh, ok, so it' the "other Bal" countries.. :d
Perhaps some new publishing deal coming in? (which geographically would probably be with.... tjadaaaaaa, your best friend Russia)
Or some legal trouble in these countries preventing Riot from operating store for these IPs?

It may simply be that Riot does not accept the business of people in certain countries because of a history of fraudulent activity involving those countries. It is not at all unusual to see country-specific limitations on stuff in Europe. I once rented a car for a week, where I had to sign a document stating that I was not allowed to drive it into Eastern Europe.

I understand that, but since this is e-business where you only get your stuff once the transaction has been made I'm not sure what fraudulent activity you could see there.

I'd like to see a red post about me not being able to buy RP on the european servers just because I live in Estonia, it's as good as Estonia banning all americans from using Skype, you wouln't like that, right?
