Steam in Vietnam

Though i’m not using Steam, i have just heard something news from Vietnam Community, which i can see that this is very seriously for anyone who are using Steam for playing CIU in Vietnam.

According to anything i knew, Steam has been banned in Vietnam due to the VTC block Steam. And i know that CIU players from Vietnam is very crown. Hmm… what should i say continue. I’ll let everyone discuss about this. Can player continue to play CIU by Steam or something else?

One could use the standalone client, just log in and you should be fine.

This is a major Reddit thread talking about how Steam is blocked in Vietnam.

I don’t know. Some players have already made deals for CIU. If Steam is banned, you know what will they lose, right? I just guess this.

Blame the taxes.
Some distributors considered that as illegal active because Steam doesn’t have a local office in our country, which cause loss on taxes.

somehow i was able to access steam with no problem

though it probably will be blocked for me in a few hours

I tried, on mobile platform with cellular data as well. And the web works, the app doesn’t nope, it worked again, odd.

Yes, but inconvenience started when people wanna buy key packs or CHL.
Because standalone only supports payments using PayPal, which… Not many people used it.

Google knows how to make their surprise, huh.

Only appears if you have 100+ Chrome tabs open.

It’s not just the base game itself, They meant a steam games was blocked in Vietnam

now every isp block accessing steam in web (client still work somehow)

i can still access the store pages


From what I have heard, some of Vietnam’s ISPs is having trouble trying to connect through Steam, which affects some Vietnamese users and NOT Total Ban from Vietnamese regions. This will eventually be fixed but might take a while.

EDIT (CONFLICTIONS): Some sources say Steam is being reported by Vietnamese game publishers, reporting Steam for “evildoing”, causing the government to block Vietnam from accessing Steam
