Hi @TatianaVavi and thank you for the report.

 

We had to restrict/remove MTX items in order to comply with Chinese law. This is the intended behavior and not a bug when you are located in China.

Hello @EA_HighCommand !

Thanks for your reply and concern))) Is there any solution of this problem? And are only mainland China players affected by this law or Hong Kong and Macau players are also affected by this law?

because currently I’m in Hong Kong and I still can’t buy crystals or packs.

We are looking into potential solutions and no, players who created their account outside of China should not be affected.

I am experiencing this "bug"--or a nearly identical bug. I live in the United States, but happened to download Galaxy of Heroes while in China (I was in China when one of the Star Wars movies came out). So my region is the United States, I am currently in the States and not in China, but now I am unable to purchase any packs or crystals, just because I downloaded the game while in China. Is this working as intended?

Same thing as Audscious - I was in China 3 years ago when I downloaded the game but am a US citizen living in the US. Is there any way to change my country code?!
