Hello MTA community,
I am not sure if you are aware about this but UAE players will no longer be able to play on MTA servers unless VPN is used. (some different cities in UAE are able to play but after 10min of waiting or so however with noticeable timeouts and teleports).
After extensive research and discussing with my ISP (Etisalat) on phone, the conclusion is that any games that has VOIP will be banned (port 80 is banned as well) and we will not be able to play it.However there's a chance in which a game developer/owner has to agree to certain conditions of UAE in order to attain the license from TRA than we can play without VPN!
Similar cases:1. Skype was banned before however later on unbanned because they got TRA license.2. Rocket League is banned. (Thankfully they talked with TRA and got license a great thanks to all gamers who supported us on this thread) We can't play on Europe servers, only UAE servers but np.3. Paladins is banned. (nothing happened here so we gotta use VPN).Recent cases:https://www.reddit.com/r/dubai/comme...banning_games/https://www.reddit.com/r/dubai/comme...at_gaming_ban/
*With all humbleness I request the MTA developers or owner to talk to TRA (LIVE CHAT) and somehow find a solution and get TRA license.
Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) in UAE said "You have to take licenses to allow the VOIP in your app".
