Vietnam suspends Ragnarok; Baldr lives! In your face Loki!

Ragnarok Online, the MMO famous for somehow having less sex appeal than Maple Story, has been suspended by the HCM Department of Post and Telecommunications (HCMDoPaT). The HCMDoPaT is Vietnam's national association responsible for setting limits on game sales and, as far as I can tell, they're the people behind all those rules stating that people can only play for twenty minutes at a time, and only once they have finished their state mandated homework.

Shades of China, you say? I concur. Vietnam has certainly taken a cue from its giant red brother in the Oppress Your People Until They Can No Longer Remember Freedom Department (OYPUTCNLRFD).

VinaGame, the company responsible for sales and server maintenance for RO, apparently hadn't been adhering to the limits placed on its game, and have since run afoul of the HCMDoPaT. I'm sure someone lost a family member over the incident, as they have promised to fix the problem as soon as the Ministy of Post and Telecommunications (MoPaT) can standardize its regulations regarding online gaming. For its insolence, VinaGame had its skin flayed off in a public humiliation ceremony, but they have filed a proper Return of Skin form with the Judiciary of Government Remanded Organs and Lymphatic Systems (JoGROaLS), and hope to have a proper body covering by Tet.
