Gpotato has announced that after tonight’s maintance, all Aika Online players outside North American will be prohibited from playing the game. Anyone outside of North America attempting to access the game afterwards will find out their account has been terminated and their access – ip-blocked. Nobody knows for sure why Gpotato have taken such drastic measures, but the decision has not come directly from Gpotato. The decision was instead made by Gala-Net, owners of Gpotato. The Aika Game Restriction will not affect any other Gpotato games.
The full announcement:
Dear Aika players,
We have an important announcement to bring you tonight. Starting tomorrow night after our weekly scheduled maintenance, we will be restricting our area of service for Aika Online to North America, given Gala-Net’s status as the North American publisher for Aika Online. This decision may result in gPotato blocking IP addresses which originate outside of North America (for Aika only – other gPotato games will not be affected). We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this action causes, and we encourage you to email us at aika_support[at]gala-net.com with any comments or concerns you may have.
-The Aika Team-
