Let Iranian Gamers Play Apex Legends

Over the past few weeks, Iranian gamers have been barred from playing Apex Legends, seemingly due to the restrictions. This game is using cloud servers that are not available in Iran and gamers can't connect to these servers. There is a strong demand for playing Apex Legends among Iranian gamers. However, due to the problem mentioned before, playing the game has become excessively hard in the country, if not impossible.Only a few eager Iranian gamers have been able to play the game employing VPN services for getting connected to the servers.VPN and proxy services are not reliable for playing games and increase ping significantly rendering the gaming experience arduous. There are more than 28 million gamers in the country and an estimated 42% of PC gamers and 41% of console gamers play online. We only have one simple request: Let Iranian gamers play Apex Legends along their international peers and be part of the global experience of transcending national boundaries made possible by popular online video games.  EA the publisher and Respawn the developer can use some dedicated servers in Asia, Middle East or even Europe that Iranian gamers can connect to.  #ApexforIran از ابتدای عرضه‌ی بازی ایپکس، این بازی به دلیل تحریم شرکت آمازون در ایران قابل بازی نیست، در حالی که تقاضای بسیار زیادی در بین گیمرهای ایرانی برای انجام این بازی وجود دارد. این کمپین با هدف جمع‌آوری حداقل ۱۰۰۰۰ امضا ایجاد شده است تا بلکه نظر سازنده و ناشر این بازی را نسبت به حجم بازار این بازی در ایران تغییر دهد. برای موفق شدن این کمپین لازم است همه‌ی شما آن را با دوستان خود به اشتراک بگذارید. برای این منظور استفاده از هشتگ زیر را فراموش نکنید: #ApexforIran

Give "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" a 20th Anniversary Remake

In July of 2023, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic will turn 20. Yes, you heard right. Knights of the Old Republic will be celebrating it's 20th Anniversary in just a few years time. The perfect time to release a remake of this classic game. Originally released back in 2003 Knights of the Old Republic went on to win one-hundred-twenty-six awards. Forty-eight of which were various forms of Game of the Year Award, including Game Developers Choice Awards'' best game of the year, BAFTA Games Awards' best Xbox game, and IGN's Best Overall Game of the year. IGN also ranked Knights of the Old Republic 3rd on its list of the best films and video games of the 2000-2009 decade. By the time of 2007, it had sold over 3.2 million units. This game was a big deal when it came out and still is to many.  Most of you already know of the story of Knights of the Old Republic, so it's pretty unnecessary to go over it. You are here because you have played it, you know it's story and would like to see it remade for it's 20th Anniversary. The same story, but built from the ground up using a modern game engine and graphics for the upcoming generation of consoles: Xbox Series X and PS5. And of course PC. I can't stress enough, don't change the story, don't take from the story either. As that will most likely upset and frustrate fans of the original. Please, leave the story as it is. Everything else though, can be built from the ground up. Game engines and graphics have came a long way since the early 2000's. Knights of the Old Republic's game engine was the Odyssey engine, since 2013 all games BioWare have developed made on EA DICE's Frostbite 3 engine. So imagine how a remake might look. EA currently holds the licence to publish Star Wars games from Disney. BioWare developed the original 2003 game and it just so happens that EA is the parent company of BioWare. Which works out quite well for this petition, as we'd like BioWare to develop a remake. To go back to it. That being said. This petition will only be for the first Knights of the Old Republic, not it's sequel The Sith Lords. As that game was developed by Obsidian Entertainment which has been acquired by Microsoft and has become part of Microsoft Studios (now known as Xbox Game Studios). So I do apologise about that. Now some of us are aware of EA's comments on Single Player games back in 2017. This may have changed after the release of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order in 2019. Not only was Jedi Fallen Order the fastest-selling digital launch for any Star Wars game within its first two weeks on sale but also more than 10 million units were sold by March 31, 2020. Exceeding EA's expectations. Showing that there is still a strong market for Single Player games. Something EA will take note on.  To make this a reality, we need to show that there is interest, an audience for a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic for it to be taken seriously. And for it to be taken seriously, that audience needs to be big. Not just hundreds of thousands but millions. Yes millions. Minimum, this petition will need to surpass the units sold of the 2003 original of 3.2 million. Yeah, that's a lot. Perhaps even double. As it will need a massive backing to influence EA/Disney. But we can split this goal into milestones. For example by surpassing EA's Star Wars social media pages. Each one we surpass will show more interest and will gain further notice.  Yes Knights of the Old Republic is set within Legends, that this story is not Canon. But it should still be celebrated. It's an era that fans would like to see adapted to Film/TV. So why not test the waters in a way, to see if there's interest. As long as it has the Legends banner on it, people will understand. Fans will know the difference. Given the reputation of the 2003 original, it will sell and that's what this petition wants to prove. That there IS an audience for a remake. A game like this needs time to developed. So we're giving this petition exactly one year to do so, till July 15th 2021. One year to show that there IS an audience for this. The more supporters we gain, the better our chances. So if your up for the challenge and would like to see Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remade for it's 20th Anniversary, please give this petition a sign and give it a share.  It won't be easy, but never tell a Star Wars fan the odds. May the Force be with us all. #RemakeKOTOR

Re-license The Lord of the Rings & Harry Potter games made by EA and Vivendi

As we all know, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War have been very successful. However, a great deal of fans miss the old LOTR and Harry Potter games that coincided with the release of the movies. In the early 2000s, Electronic Arts made deals with AOL Time Warner (now WarnerMedia) to make and publish video games based on both the Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings franchises. However, the LOTR and Harry Potter games that were made under EA cannot be published due to the licenses having expired years ago. Therefore, if Warner Bros could work out a possible licensing renewal deal with EA so the latter can publish their old Harry Potter and LOTR games, it would mean a great deal to both Wizarding World and Middle-Earth fans alike. The Battle for Middle Earth real-time strategy games are still very popular, and putting it back on the market to websites such as Steam and/or GOG would be a no-brainer. In addition, The Two Towers and The Return of the King games are some of the best film-to-game adaptions ever made, they are fun hack-and-slash games that lets you live the films. Sorcerer's Stone is another classic that I grew up with, it was one of the greatest Harry Potter experiences I remember. Also, Quidditch World Cup did for Harry Potter what Episode I: Racer did for Star Wars by letting you play fictional sports. A secondary goal would be for Middle-earth Enterprises to make a deal with Activision Blizzard to publish the Middle-Earth games that were made under Vivendi from 2002-2004 such as War of the Ring. In the recent years, backward compatibility has had an increase in overall importance with consoles such as the Xbox One and PS4 and Nintendo's Virtual Console service, allowing gamers to buy and download classic games from older consoles. If everyone reading this could give their vote, we might see some possibilities for a publishing license/deal. If The Lord of the Rings Online could get a license renewal, so can the other games.   Games made by EA:Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001 & 2003) The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup (2003)Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (2004) The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth (2004)The Lord of the Rings: Tactics (2005)Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth II (2006)Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)The Lord of the Rings: Conquest (2009)Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) Games made by Vivendi: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2002) The Hobbit (2003) The Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring (2003)
