Unblock tunneling services for Maplestory Global.
Continuing from the thread on old forums- http://maplestory.nexon.net/community#/showthread.php?1551835-Unblock-tunneling-services-for-Maplestory-Global-Ping-is-ridiculous&nxid=6
As the title says. These were blocked for god knows what reason back in May 22nd 2015 following the major DDOS attacks that were happening around that time. Whether or not it was a mistake is unknown but many threads have been made in the past and all of them have gone unnoticed and have received no response from any official. Contacting live support about this issue was pointless as they don't seem to understand what it is even after linking the website and provide no useful answer to resolving this issue.
This post best describes a tunneling service.
"It's like... your normal connection to the game is a bus - it makes all sorts of unnecessary stops on it's way to your destination, so it takes longer to get there, resulting in a high ping. A program like Battleping or Mudfish or Pingzapper is like a personal car. It can take the most direct route, so it reduces travel time (ping)."
Currently this is what ping looks like if you aren't situated near the servers. Although it's more like 350ms standard. Would most likely be 150-200+ for people in EC or EU. People from East coast US, EU, Australia and other far areas in the service regions are all affected. A tunneling service would effectively bring the latency down to the correct values. Australia ping to the West Coast US should be 180-200 max yet it's 350? This is due to the horrible routes to your servers which can easily be fixed with a tunneling service. I know this because everyone who had high ping was using them before you randomly decided to block them.http://www.basilmarket.com/Hey-has-a...Thread-b551J-1

I have no idea why they were blocked since they pose no threat. Perhaps they were mistaken for VPNs that mask your IP and are used by botters. These services however do not mask your IP. They login with the player IP first. I'd also like to mention most of these services are used in more than 100 MMO games globally and while the publishers/devs do not support it personally they allow the use of these services in their game.
