Welp, This is interesting.
Welp, This is interesting.
I saw that edit. And my retort to your "inb4 everyone quits GMS for KMS" is....
Inb4 KMS actually puts in an IP ban on non-korean IPs.
Aren't you a quick one. I edited it out due to it saying phone verification which I missed while reading. There won't be any IP ban.
The article linked from there is actually pretty interesting.
Does the US already have a similar law?
That was already common knowledge, atleast to me and most Korean gamers. But as of right now, no I'm pretty sure the US doesn't have that law.
Why would American law makers ever bother with passing laws about botting in RPGs when a lot of them think that RPGs are just "that pokemon thing on the nintendo"?
You can't stop botting, passing a law regarding it would be one of the most retarded things they would pass.
6 million dollars is now "hefty" for a company that makes hundreds of millions of dollars every year?
~Quitting GMS for KMS
Nexon Korea doesn't store your social security number anymore with their new ''Nexon Email ID''. But there is still an amount of users with the old account type.
Why? It will practically impossible for you to signup for a Korean game id if companies cannot accept social security numbers anymore. The new law will force everyone to identify by: i-Pin, birth documents, credit card or phone. Four things foreigners cannot simply easy get compared to a social security number. But there are already companies who offer these kind of options.

Question: Did they asked for mobile identification before?
If they did not, how will this change make it easier for foreigns to get a kMS account?
Nevermind, ^ answered my questions.
@Spadow; According to you, isn't KMS just as bad as GMS in terms of botting/hacking?
Idk why people would want to play KMS when they have to go through all the hurdles just to have the same service but earlier content.
Even if there wasn't a law that forbids companies from requiring SSNs for registration or w/e, I still don't think any company is willing to take that risk. Most companies can't even keep credit card information safe <_<.
We might be seeing the end of foriegners getting into KMS?
But in GMS it's out of control with dupe, item generator and what else. Many people can get access to it.
In KMS you can find a lot of multiple botters in one channel. Nexon has tried many ways to get rid of botters but...
Dupe and item generation have been fixed for a relative eternity at this point.
I really doubt that. With every patch for said hacks, there's a new one right around the corner.
Crashless dupe was patched /* and hasn't made a comeback */ , but server/channel crashes still create rollbacks. But the servers have been surprisingly stable recently, so not much duping as been going on as far as I know (which isn't much, but whatever).
Idk can you throw around 6 million dollars a day?
but can a big company throw 6 million dollars once?
not the same thing
It is the same thing.
6 million dollars is 6 million dollars.
Your logic is broken.
$1 is still a $1. I would rather have the dollar than lose it.
You make, oh let's say $20,000 a year.
Go get a ticket for $100, it's only a 100 out of 20,000, right?
