    It will probably be ages before we see widespread change from this.
    Per the law, up to three months to conform. After that, they can and will be fined if they continue to offer said service to Belgian customers.

    As laws like this are spreading - with lawmakers finally catching up - it'll be interesting to see how the industry as a whole react. At the same time, there was already a massive backlash from customers against Loot Boxes in general and I think most studios will simply phase them out.

    simple server for euro will have no loot boxes available, IE Korean server has different aspects then any other server for the game ,,,, USA servers will have loot boxes as will all other servers,,

    Lets not get confused,, any Law in the USA does not pertain outside its borders, thus every local law in any country does not pertain to any other country,, only international law pertains to everyone on the planet,, thus India gets away with USA FCC laws for telemarketing when your phone number is on the USA do not call list, it means squat to anyone else outside the country..

    Belgium laws do not apply as long as the server is not located in Belgium. Come on people do some research into internet law.

    Because all topic relating to the gaming industry as a whole are moved here. To which the new EU laws effect all and not just Archeage.

    Trion has already been pro-active in the possibility of loot box removal since they moved some charms to the honor shop.

    Im guessing what they might do is remove gambling boxes and just put up items straight up on the cash shop, like SWTOR and a few others are trying to do for example. Downside is that items that would be put on cash shop separatly will likely cost more credits however a good side is that you can target what you want to buy without having to resort to RNG which is good

    Charms in honor shop is simple "taunt the players" like many of old changes. (example: you can craft it = nobody will craft it because it will cost 3x more than rm item in AH -*old building management titles). You will never use this charms because low quality items have 100% success rate, better quality regrades require too many honor. When you get this honor you will not need this charms anymore. And you can't buy superior charms in honor shop. This is simple placebo. (15k-50k honor /regrade in unique level? lol)

    +we got less gamble regrade and crates-packs because other country ruled games better than EU-NA regions. If XLgames have to change something it's easier to change in all versions.
