I purchased this game 2 years ago when i was on a trip. since then steam rules changed and i couldnt refresh my location. i purchased last 2 DLC without any problem but now i cant access DLC page it seems it is unavailable for steam users with Russian region in their steam settings. (at least for now)
You are basically asking us to help you somehow get past the sanctions placed on your country. You’re probably going to have to wait several years or decades before it’s released legally when the sanctions are lifted.
Its not just Russia, people in Iran, Syria and North Korea also can’t buy the game legally. I mean you might think its unfair but the way I see it its a small price to pay for perpetrating war crimes and rape and mass murder of civilians in neighbouring countries. If OP has any issues maybe they can write a letter complaining to the Kremlin who are responsible for their gaming rights being taken away.
The guy who spoke in Spanish has adressed this - he claims that it’s stupid to justify the punishment enforced on the people for the war crimes commited by the government. In that bit about writing a letter to the Kremlin you are realling taking the ■■■■ on the original poster.
I’m russian and never support Putin and war. When we got unfair election I went on the protest.
This game and this community is much more than a simple game for me. I start playing Age of empires in 1999 when i was a school boy. The Conquerors expansion release make me so hyped. I was hoping someday we get another one expansion. I always played Age of empires 2 next 10 years. And start following all esports scene in 2014, right before the African Kingdoms release. And every DLC, every good news about our beloved game makes me so happy.
Last two month I live in Georgia…
(In this post I would not say how much I want the next DLC to be a Caucasus one, because Georgians and Armenians had very cool architecture and intresting middle age history, oops I just did it)
So I can switch my steam account to georgian, cause in Russia you can’t buy Age of Empires games anymore. But now I can’t pay because I only have russian bank card. It’s sad that I have a base game, all Dlcs and can’t buy a new one.
It’s just a old time Age fan thouths with the love letter to our community from all around the world, really happy to be a part of it.
Once again: it’s not comparebale to what suffering brings the war and I don’t support it in anyway.
