How to Play Black Desert EU/NA in the Regions It's Not Released in
Black Desert Online EU/NA got the attention of many players around the world, but sadly a huge fan-base was kinda betrayed when BDO team announced that there will be an IP-block for any player outside EU & NA regions.
Actually the fans from outside EU/NA didn't really give up, they wanted to play using a VPN, but they were afraid of using such a method, because it may result in a ban. Others were afriad of the VPN lags, but today i wanna introduce how to play BDO from a blocked region without being banned or getting VPN lags.
The method for sure requires a VPN, but this method has been used since the launch phase and there was no such a BAN or a LAG "unless the server was lagging hehe".
And that's maybe because their ToU doesn't really include something related to using a VPN or whatever.
So anyway just follow the steps below and you will be fine.
1- Download a VPN
You can download any VPN you want, but i recommend HIDE.ME VPN, because it's easy to use, you just press "connect".
For sure you have to choose EU country if you are living close to EU region or NA if you are living close to NA region.
To download HIDE.ME VPN, just go to the website, download it and create a free plan account.
Just open the game launcher and login to your account, then press "PLAY" button.
Note that the VPN should be connected while doing this process.
Disconnect your VPN after pressing "PLAY" button, yes don't worry the client wont get disconnected, just choose the server and play.
Well, that's it, you are now playing without a VPN which means u wont get VPN lags, also many players were using this method since the launch phase and they are just fine till now.
Here's an experience from Egypt to EU servers, you will find a comparison of the ping with and without VPN below.
- With VPN:
- Without VPN:
Keep in mind you have to repeat the 3 steps everytime you login to the game.
GOOD LUCK !
