I wish they would go after Google next and its region blocked vids next.

Region blocked vids, 100% would love that fixed. I mean its not often I get region blocked vids. But when it does happen, its super annoying.

You guys know that's not Google, right?

In this case, the EU is taking action because one corporate entity is doing this.
With what you're complaining about, Google literally only has the rights to the content in one geography. Someone entirely different owns it in another. Google cannot legally show it in the region you're in. They'd prefer to, but someone else has the rights to it.

You're angry at the wrong entity. Which, actually, is pretty common. Again, I'm sometimes really taken aback by how little some posters here understand things like this, despite some of those people posting about it endlessly. We're all near our 40s, shouldn't we know how businesses work? It's only a small percentage - most here either do know or simply ask questions, but unsurprisingly, the angriest always seem the least informed.

Wow good way to talk down to me unsuccessfully. I had ZERO reference as to blaming the Google for it. Jonjonz had the original blame for google. I was referencing Region locking vids in General the practice of it happening at all regardless of reasoning.

Its so amazing how often you have dippy posters who like to act like they know more then others. So uninformed! I'm taken aback myself at how little people understand things like this.

The EU is such a Bittersweet thing when it swings its weight around.You get downsides like the recent Article 11 and 13's with copyright "protections"

And sometimes you get positive things, like then taking a hammer to the wild west style US corporations and forcing them into some sort of regulation regardless of US laws.

Take the good with thew bad long as something gets done, I guess.

They probably have a shoe string IT budget like most companies. They just hope this stuff never happens instead of being ready for it, on some level. IE: backups

And their IT guy is probably some low wage guy's on contract who really could care less if the company was all burned down the next day. Capitalistic employment and security, at its finest.

The only reason why I'm ok with that is that it counters the Lib propaganda. None of them are good of course. It just keeps some of the sheep voters in check.

What you call "lib propaganda" the rest of us call science.

That raises a point though, what exactly is "lib" propaganda? I mean like what, legitimate news? legitimate accredited science sources? Or the more fanciful things like socialism ideas?

You know the same type of thing the US is founded on, Government by the people, for the people. Damn socialists, rewriting history.

Maybe we should look at some of these countries and see if some of their ideas could improve things in the US.

Having left the US after 35 years living and working in NY, moving to Europe was... man life feels much better. Sure it has its faults. But I do not have to fear for my medical, retirement, or security. All of which I feared for in the US.

And yeah the US is quickly becoming a laughing stock here. I rarely say where I come from, I'm not proud of it at all. Still stuck paying the IRS for the time being. So I have every right to complain.

Well, he is not totally wrong. The few that are being silenced such as Alex Jones and the like, are being silenced because the kind of racist, homophobic, hate speech they post a ton of. He can sit their and think its singling them out specifically... because, well, that kind of crap they spew out on Breitbart and other sources are so very much hate speech they tend to get banned/booted out of other places.

IE: They really cannot function in a normal society, they need their safe spaces.

And yeah they do not have much in the way of problems. They are not being muted. They are being ignored though. Turns out normal people do not really want to surround themselves with garbage talk.

Or everyone could just accept Female gender in a combat role... If your worried about genitalia so much there is enough porn for whatever suits your fancy.

Yeah I'm getting more on board with buying the game. So many whiny people it will make upset, its starting to be worth the cost. And if all the gender whiner's decide not to buy the game... hell maybe the community will improve? Still a BF game though, probably not.

So much whining about nothing. Seriously guys, the hell is wrong with you lot?

Different setting? What? futuristic. ok you have Call of Duty with wall running, Titanfall with giant robots, frigging Overwatch with special future tech abilities. Other Games and options are available.

Girls in combat? it happened it happened throughout history, in happened during WW2, Women were fighting. Let it be represented here. If your worried about whats between someones legs during combat your honestly just dumb.

Fortnite? How? This game at least keeps it logical. Is the dumb looking structures in Fortnite somehow better? And believe me they look pretty f-in stupid.

>>I'm actually interested in the game. Customizing my Matilda Tank with a Union Jack? count me in for at least that. Skeptical though, it is DICE and its a new BF. Going to be alot of bugs that will probably never get fixed. As per usual.

But whatever keeps your hate kindling is up to you.

Can't wait to see what that memo says, though. Pretty shocking that the Dems haven't leaked it yet. I wonder why.

Ohh knock it off, its annoying to watch people hold Democrats to higher standards but lower them to underneath the basement levels of standards for the Republican side. Useless hypocrites.

I like how people say immigrants want to sponge off the system. The American system might be better then some countries but its trash and inhuman in some other countries by comparison. Mostly they go to the US cause they have Family their and they want to live the American dream. Or at least the lies and crap movies tell them is the dream.

Also I like the Norway thing. Norway is like one of the best countries to live in. They would need massive incentive to go to give that up and go to the US. So Trump might tout that idea as getting better people. But the better people know better then to immigrate to the US already.

Couldn't they just tell them to go fuck themselves? Its a company you access on the internet that you choose to use from any location in the world. I just don't understand the mechanics of how they are held to Austrialian law when they don't have a footprint there. Can someone explain this?

Not every country forces its citizenry to take it up the ass from Companies... like the U.S. enjoys. Nearly exclusively.

Alot of uninformed here, Its blocked by default on the store page country wide. Based off a user's preference, IE telling steam I'm in Germany blocks content.
Isn't it a little more in depth than just telling steam your location, because if that was the case than it would be easy to circumvent.

I would think it would at least be by ip (internet protocol).
My steam profile says I'm from Timor-Leste

I could not give you details as to the how or why. I know my US account can see games for sale a German based account cannot. While physically being on the same router in Germany for several years.

The Humvee is just automatically connected to the US military. Just like M4's, and the Abrams tanks.

Do the makers of Abrams tanks get upset when their designs end up in games?

Am general is probably just mad cause only a few Rich countries want to buy that gas guzzling thing and has limited world wide appeal military wise anymore as its outdated. So the CEO takes Activision to court for royalties to pay for enough money to buy his new house somewhere.

This game shows you do not need Anti-Cheats. You just take a Hero and smash the enemy team anyway. And you can just crush people with your wallet by buying loot boxes. Why bother with Anti-cheat when your selling the cheats?

Having lived near Albany, and closer to Troy, having a game studio in the area would be amazing. And totally out of place in that area of New York.

But as John Oliver has exposed, doing Tax incentives is basically a waste of time and money and does not work. Wish it would.
