This is not the decision made in one day, SG already knew about this but waited to the last moment to pronounce, I know some Vn fellows who just spent to summon in costume right before got the news. Just wow.
Does anyone know when this will take place? Many Alli members in a friend’s alliance looking for answers, as is everyone else I’m sure - I feel terrible for anyone in this situation. I am just sorry anyone has to lose something they’ve invested so much time, effort and resources into. They need to be more transparent and actually give people some real info so they at least know when it’s going into effect.
Countries make and change laws regarding what services can’t or can’t be done in them all the time.
I work for a global company and we forever get notifications about a change in this one or that one.
Usually local lawyers on the ground will be engaged to see what the scope of the changes are and what you can do to mitigate them. There’s usually lead in times as well whilst resolutions are sought.
But it happens that we get told that’s it on the day and we were dealing with stuff the day before. Really it’s a case of trying our best to keep operating as long as possible.
But once a law becomes solidified and you know you have no way around it you just shut the door and walk away. I don’t blame SGG for this, from what I’ve read Vietnam were requesting some big slices of the pie for a lot of foreign game companies to carry on. But you try and keep going as long as practically possible, usually whilst the laws are being challenged etc etc.
But we own nothing and if it happened in my country then that would be that. Such is life.
Online game like Empires and Puzzles or Puzzles Combat is categorized as G1 and required a license to work in Vietnam but SG refused to ask for one. There are thousands online game out there so it’s hard for the authority to notice and take action, until a large amount of money go in their pocket.
What SG doing about Puzzles Combat?
Nothing. They still available, unlicensed, and innocent players still playing and spending.
The same thing will happen when the authority notice and ask them to make a license. SG then will refuse to do that, and then will apologize to players because they “force to leave due to local regulatory”.
And what, exactly, is involved in “asking for one”?
Based on other links in this discussion, it appears that you have to turn over a majority control of in country operations to a local company. Quite frankly, that’s not worth it to many companies with a wide customer base, and it’s easier/cheaper to just cease operations.
Based on the wording of the article (“we hope to return…”), it sounds like they won’t do anything unless the law changes. But that may just be a pessimistic reading on my part.
for players who are continuing to play this game vietnam . something is not right. is the price to buy in-game items. for android is too high compared to ios. 24 for ios and 30 for android. what’s the reason. Do you want Android players to stop buying items?
You don’t even look at the picture. that I sent to you. You guys have underestimated the players. In the same country, the currency will be the same. all in d. Can you distinguish the similarities and the differences? i think you are blind
