Nail in NeverWinter's Coffin

From the looks of it, and by my best guesses, this seems to be a really heavy-handed reaction to hacking attempts. 

http://map.ipviking.com/ shows one company's stats on tracking hacking.  As you can see, the list of blocked areas roughly corresponds to the banned areas.  The US generates a lot of attacks, but Americans are probably also sinking in more money overall, making the hacked/profit tradeoff still in the favor of profits. 

While I understand this reaction to some degree, Perfect World, Neverwinter's parent company, is Chinese!  We also have Ghostenberg, who is in Thailand (correct me if I'm wrong, Ghost).  So, I think I'm officially FULLY out of Neverwinter, as not all of us even have the ability to play anymore.

Thoughts, conspiracy theories?

Edit, I'm tired and confused Thailand, and Taiwan... My apologies.

Good grief, that's massively heavy-handed.  I've never seen a company do anything like that before....
