Can someone explain to me? RMAH and Korea

General Discussion
Why the game would be delayed because of Korea and RMAH? US servers are not in Korea, the only one that would be an issue would be Korea.

I am lost as to why people think this is a reason.
Because...


























...ALIENS.
Blizz has said they want a "Global Release" which means everyone gets it on the same day.

Assume for a minute that the game is DONE, to release a game in SK it has to be approved by the GRB(which is a fact) Since Blizzard wants a "Global Release" they have to wait for SK approval or risk not launching in SK day one. Us playing in the USA depends on all the countries approving the game so it can be "global" on day one.
Because...


























...ALIENS.


this pretty much sums it up
why not just release it with no RMAH in korea.

I think they threatened us with nukes if that happened.

This is probably Blizzard's LAST RESORT, they know that South Koreans are used to micro-transactions games and there is TONS of money to be made.

ya but if the korean government isnt allowing it then in reality there is zero money to be made, and every day it delays launch it is costing blizzard money in RMAH sales throughout the rest of the world. time to cut losses and put RMAH in korea when they vote in a goverment who will allow it
Blizzard wants to do a simultaneous global release.

This is fact.

and every day it delays launch


Which purportedly is zero so far.

While I agree with you, and could care less if SK gets RMAH at launch, Blizzard clearly sees value in it.
