Entropia News: Strongbox announcement

Discussion in 'Entropia News' started by EP-Newsbot, Dec 12, 2018.

  1. Strongbox announcement


    On the first of January 2019 a new Swedish law which affects lootbox systems that is used in many computer, mobile, and console games will go into effect. MindArk’s legal representatives has advised us on this new law and therefore we need to take the necessary steps outlined below to comply with this new regulation.

    The consequences of the new law will be that users located in Sweden (or with a Swedish IP) will no longer be allowed to purchase Strongboxes or Strongbox keys in the Entropia Universe Webshop from this date. It will still be possible for anyone in Entropia Universe to find boxes within Entropia Universe, but users located in Sweden (or with a Swedish IP) will not be able to open them unless they have Strongbox Keys acquired prior to January 1, 2019. Strongbox Keys acquired prior to January 1, 2019 will continue to function even for users in Sweden, but they will not be able to purchase new Strongbox Keys from this date.

    If you do not reside in Sweden or use a Swedish IP Strongboxes and Strongbox Keys will continue to work like previously, this change only affect users in Sweden or with a Swedish IP.

  2. OMG, I love the openness towards the community for a change. x'D

    Next, Explosive Blueprints !

    Dont be swedish...danish...belgian...

    These boxes are nothing but a clever scam anyway, in any game beeing out there using these.
    I freaking dislike authorities, but if they are the only ones who are able to swing the banhammer on scammy online activities...be my guest.

  3. Mindark is not allowed to scam people in sweden, but they will continue in the rest of the world. (Nothing new).

    If you are swedish, please use a program to make sure your IP is located elsewhere than in sweden.
    So if you still want to be rewarded like we always did, you know what to do !

    "Did we mention about the IP address? oh, we did? Three times in fact? oh right thanks. So yeh if you have a Swedish IP you understand, you won't be able to buy keys for strongboxe... what? I did it again? Ah well it was only once too many right? What? I mentioned the fact that only Swedish IP addresses won't work 4 times?! Man what is with my memory? Anyhow yes so sorry, as I was saying, IP addresses located in Sweden won't be able to buy strong boxe... what's that? We could do it on registered credit card address as without that being correct transactions won't go through? Well that's a nice idea but no I think we know what we are doing pal and we're going to block IP addresses in Sweden. IN SWEDEN GOT IT? (other IP addresses are available)"
