Iran blocks Guild Wars, World of Warcraft

Reports are coming in that Iran is moving to block access to several MMOs, including World of Warcraft and Guild Wars. This comes following a conference by the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance earlier this month. At the conference, the Islamic Revolution Game Designers Community was formed and decided to ban games that promote superstition, mythology, violence, and revealing clothing.
Following the decision, the government started cracking down on various services and MMOs, such as Battle.net's library and ArenaNet's Guild Wars series. Other games targeted include RuneScape, Second Life, Dofus, Evony, and Entropia Universe.
It's unclear to what extent the government is attempting to enforce these bans, and Iranian players are looking into workaround solutions to access their MMOs. It's interesting to note that Blizzard does not authorize downloads of its products or services in Iran.

What else did you expect from religious fanatics?
Just remember those christian extremists burning Harry Potter books because they promoted witchcraft. I mean, seriously, how retarded can you be :D


I think it's time we stop giving religion so many privileges and reclassify it as a hobby. No more public funding of their "staff", no more free property for churches, and if you want to force your religious BS on others you can kindly piss off to Antarctica and preach to the penguins.

Blocking WoW? Great move!
Blocking GW? Bitch move! I dont like MMORPGS anymore but GW is the best among them.

It's sad, but not unexpected. Organized religion often considers entertainment as one of its many enemies.

Judging by this "...promote superstition, mythology, violence, and revealing clothing..." they wont.

Even violence isnt very present in WoT, your just shooting steel with steel. There are crewmembers in the tanks but you never see them.
I think its very unlikely that they will ever touch WoT. CoD or Battlefield however have a big change of getting banned.
