Hello,

 

after i injoied the santa gifts last year, i wanted to buy some this year too. But it seems that it is  impossible to buy them frome Belgium or Luxembourg (i play on EU-Server).

Can WG explain pls why this is restricted to the belgian playerbase?

Paid lootcrates are considered gambling by the Belgian government, and are thus subject to the laws & regulations of online casino's, which means: "don't promote it to minors, add an age-check to make sure that minors can't participate and have a license for organising gambling". WG chose not to follow the rules and not to request a license, but instead make purchasing of crates impossible when located in Belgium, thus exempting them from having to comply to Belgian law. It's not our government's fault, it's WG who decided they did not want to comply and go for the "we'll ban it ourselves"-route. Probably because that was cheaper & easier than to be compliant, since the Belgian market is marginal at best in terms of gains.

This will be happening in the UK also sometime in 2019. 

If im honest its not before time. Gaming companies have got away with ripping off customers for long enough with Loot boxes so its time they were stopped.

I consider it gambling as well, and hope it gets banned in the whole EU.

 

The UK will probably have to allow it again after Brexit, as part of a trade deal with Belarus or some other place... ;-)
