I'm currently in singapore for a couple weeks and I've got some downtime during the day here and I want to play league of legends. But when I try to log in it says Server Status: BLOCKED. Does the riot servers currently block IPs from singapore/other asian countries due to copyright issues or is this something I can fix? I am about 80% sure that I have played against someone from singapore before but I cannot confirm it.

All SEA countries have the IPs blocked due to LoL SEA.

Ahh..okay. That's pretty lame. BTW what does SEA stand for? South East Asian is what comes to mind? Is there a reason why they are all banned?

Glad I seen this thread, headed to Japan tomorrow. I guess no LoL for me for 2 weeks.

I think they block the IPs so you don't end up with communication issues/issues with the different character set on a Asian keyboard

It might work in Japan. I'm in South Asia (Bangladesh) and it works great. Its just Singapore, etc that is IP blocked.

I can't buy RP over here though, which sucks.
