I was feeling like trying something a little different, and since Black Prophecy was Free To Play, I decided to give that a go.
After looking around the website for a registration link, I lodged a support ticket. The response came back pretty quickly:
unfortunately an IP Block has been added to our games due to license rights limitations.
This means that our servers will only accept players from within the European Union and North America.

Thank you for your understanding.
So the game isn’t available to Australian players who have traditionally been included in the North America region because of licence restrictions. Is Oz even in line for licencing this game? In a so called global economy, how messed up is that?
