    Lightbulb Iranian Players Blocked From World of Warcraft Due To Trade Sanctions [Slashdot]



    cold fjord writes "Is this the end of the world . . . of Warcraft? Maybe for Iranian gamers who are undergoing a forced morale check due to tightening sanctions cutting access to their game of choice. From the article: 'Iranian players of "World of Warcraft" ... have found themselves frozen out by Blizzard Activision Inc., the American company behind the game. Iranian role playing enthusiasts have spent much of the past week peppering Blizzard's message board with complaints about how they weren't able to log on to the service — only to be told recently that U.S. law was to blame. "United States trade restrictions and economic sanction laws prohibit Blizzard from doing business with residents of certain nations, including Iran," the company said in an email sent to players last week...'" Thanks to the sanctions, they can't get refunds either.

    Maybe we should think about switching the bot to posting from a different site. This is week and a half old news. This has been happening a lot lately.

    Maybe the bot should use Digital Press as a source?

    Wonder if they could play on the EU servers or one of the others?
