Following up on the “League of Legends Southeast Asia” news, my sister reported today that she can (finally) not access the North America League of Legends server now. Yes, it meant that while the official news and email from Riot Games said that the IP block will be in place sometime late February, my sister (and a number of players, according to the LOL forum) was still able to access the server, until today.
I still think that blocking the SEA players now is a bad decision, no matter how small the percentage of them are playing on the North America server. I have read in some forums of players switching over to Heroes of Newerth. My sister has already joined me for Prius Online. I truly wonder how much of those who played on the NA server will play in the SEA servers when they are up.
