I'm at a middle/highschool level of Japanese and I currently live in America. I want to practice my Japanese through through playing a MMORPG so I was thinking of trying to join a Japan Server for Aion or Tera. The problem is that they IP lock. There's a further difficultly in that Tera is owned by different companies for the American server (En Masse in America and Hangame for Japan I think).
I've considered using a proxy but I was afraid that it would slow my connection. Any suggestions on how to get onto a Japanese server or keep the maximal Japanese exposure as an American player?
