These VIP packages differ slightly from the packages you would get on the US servers. One noticeable difference is the price. These are half the price since the economy in South East Asia is different. For example, the minimum wage in the Philippines is less than $1 an hour, and in places like Thailand, the minimum wage is about $10 a day.
So for us to have a realistic chance of enabling the Asian players to support and help finance the server, the prices have been lowered. Yes, before you ask. Only South East Asian players can play on the Asian server. Since players with high ping can affect the server's performance, we have blocked all countries not in SEA from connecting.
