This is a silly move on Riot's part. SEAsians are more than happy to play on NA's servers, even with potential lag.

I should add that stopping people from connecting to the NA servers is just discouraging people from playing the game altogether. If the local providers offer a better alternative, players from that region would naturally gravitate to them. Artificially creating these barriers just frustrate the playerbase.

I'm from Philippines it's fine for me to have SEA servers because of lower latency and better playing. the only thing bothers me is the rune and ip i have spent. i hope i will get refund of it. not in for my riot points that i have spent for bundles and skins. you know i'm so addicted to this game including my cousins and brothers. so please riot give us consideration pls make those heroes rune that we have unlock in NA to be also available in SEA servers. Happy gaming to all and more power Riot! This is really better than DOTA. We even quit playing DOta because of this game.

So many questions need answers....
Most importantly with such a huge deal being done here why not tell people when they are receiving the emails, or even list what countries you classify as South East Asia because that region has alot of half n half countries.

Taking a hole account away from someone is like saying you dont give a rats ass, you should atleast transfer the details over. Funny story, if you did that to someone in your own country for no reason they could Sue you and win.

I'm sure I speak for a lot of people when I say that this is a very poorly thought out move. There is a huge number of players in North America and South East Asian who are friends and relatives with each other. Riot is going to lose a lot of players with this move to other games with better business decisions (such as HoN, sadly).

Please do not repeat the same mistakes several other game companies have made. There is still time for you to rethink banning SEA IPs.

P.S. For whatever it's worth, I'm a NA player.

We all like LOL very much and have lot of friends in NA like americans and canadians,so if u do this,we have to say goodbye to them.GJ RIOT
