    I almost missed this, as for some reason its not an official post but is put as a header item on the forum page(s).


    "On Thursday, March 16, 2017, Bossland GmbH, and its directors Mr Zwetan Letschew and Mr Patrick Kirk admitted, in and for the purposes of proceedings before the High Court of England and Wales, that the sale of its software which it sells as Honorbuddy, Gatherbuddy, Demonbuddy, Hearthbuddy, Stormbuddy and Watchover Tyrant, to any person resident in the United Kingdom, constitutes an infringement of Blizzard’s intellectual property rights and an inducement to players of Blizzard’s games to breach their agreements with Blizzard. Accordingly, Bossland and its directors are no longer permitted to advertise or offer for sale such software to UK residents."

    I have an interesting question, since I reside in Scotland where there is a different legal system and courts should this affect us? As it was a ruling by an England and Wales court. Not the entire of the UK.

    LOL we have had Devolution for quite a while mate.

    History of Scottish Devolution

    As for your mention of Scotland using the English Legal system See here

    In future, please do your research before blindly posting completely incorrect information on forums.

    I stand corrected....funny we just had the discussion on discord about ireland too

    but due to the UK Parliament at Westminster can pass laws on reserved matters – in general, those with a UK-wide or international impact still apply to scotland, so your not out the woods :D

    reserved matters include :-

    benefits and social security
    immigration
    defence
    foreign policy
    employment
    broadcasting
    trade and industry
    nuclear energy, oil, coal, gas and electricity
    consumer rights
    data protection
    the Constitution


    so consumer rights and data protection

    Yeah, that is unfortunate... I really don't want to play by hand... So lazy! So yeah, on discord Bossland said the UK auth servers have been shut down, does that mean that we cannot even use the bot now? I purchased a 1 year sub on the 11th of this month. I believe it might be too late to get a refund... :(

    Hmm, what VPN are you using? I normally use Cyberghost. Remember, if it is a Europe key your VPN will need to be within europe. I normally just place my VPN to France or Poland lol
