    OP, if you haven't been tracked down and imprisoned for expressing dissent yet, I hope you stay safe.

    Extremists are never a good thing. I would in all honesty move out of the contry that banned stuff like that if I had the possibility.

    This is truly horrible... Not just bnet but all of it really, I hope you can use some proxy and bypass this
    Yeah, we can use VPNs but I think it's in violation of some sort with BNet's ToS or something, but regardless, not many people here have access to authenticators. Without one, your sudden IP change results in account lock.

    Look at how moronic the reasons for this act are:

    1. Promotion of superstition and mythology
    2. Promotion of violence due to too much violence (I'm not exaggerating this is exactly what they wrote).
    3. Abolishing the deformation in sin.
    4. Demonstration of inappropriate clothing and slutty outfits for female avatars.

    The day that an Islamic regime bans something for promotion of superstition and mythology is the day that I want to burn myself alive. I mean. COME. ON! Your entire existence is based on myth and superstition and you ban World of Warcraft for that?!?!?!?!?!

    And it's not just WoW or D3 or StarCraft.. There's GuildWars and tons of other titles. This government is hell bent against people having fun. We don't have bars, discos obviously because we live under God's holy vicegerent, Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader. About 90% of the internet is already blocked, fantasy books are banned. Basically anything with reference to magic and high fantasy is banned. I'm not kidding, they have been pulling books from an already dead book market for exact same reasons. Movies and TV shows based on fantasy and mythology and magic is also banned from national television. Everything in this fucking country is now illegal, I have no idea what would it take for people to grow a pair and stand up for themselves now. I really, really don't know.

    I'm so frustrated right now I can punch pigeon, or a very cute dog.
    well your Government is Shi'ai
    no offense i know im off topic but Iran as Muslim country ? your problems with islamic countries are more than any other side come to think of it Iran never been in a war with countries other than Muslim (Sunni)
    had throw it there , think of the WOW ban as in the good of the youth with the Economic problems

    So basically, it's kind of like.. in WoW you go around killing people/critters and stealing loot, and that is basically the essence of the game - killing things. Since that is the core of the game, it is "okay", and that is sinful? I'm not sure how to say it properly. I guess, there's no negative repercussions for killing things all day long?

    Edit: Nevermind, Sackman cleared it up.

    How would they know what goes on unless they've played, hm, hm? They must be upset about pandas, too?! :x

    Seriously though it IS ridiculous, I wonder how much longer people can deal with the oppression..

    What's funnier is that it's not even an original fantasy book, it's a rewrite of a piece of fiction that already existed.

    I... I better just not say anything or I will get an infraction... but lets just say that i find it very stupid.

    I feel for you dude. I can't imagine what it would be like having to live under constant threat of the whims of what is pretty much a dictatorship with questionable moral laws. I hope you can find a way around it and still enjoy WoW without running the risk of getting into serious trouble with the law.

    Not a change , they have been the same for the past 1k years . And this is why I hate religion so much (I believe in God and try to act in a good way , but I won't shove my beliefs onto someone else) .
    And I thought that islamic countries couldn't get any worst than they were .

    Let's refrain from insulting or generalizing based on people's religious beliefs.

    I honestly think they'll let it slide in this case. It's absolutely insane. I wish you the best of luck in that messed up country.

    Such a statement deems how you are indifferent from the people going the extremes of which you seem to speak of.

    To shed more light on the issue and to inform the OP. The Iran is Shiite and rather forms of minority of the Islamic community/people in the planet, having to credit "Islam" for their actions is not appropriate.

    Regarding Iran, banning of WoW is rather a first world problem as the state those people are far from pleasant and if asked, probably B.Net IP access freedom would be far down their list of human rights they are banned from.
