    Can a player in mainland China play the game without a VPN.
    I'm asking because many cloud services require a server in mainland China (behind the firewall) to work consistently.

    Good question, I'm not sure, it would make sense you need a VPN then but I'll try to have a test done and will let you know the outcome.

    Obviously requiring a VPN is a no go for any Chinese platform

    Hi @spinaljack,
    We conducted a test from Shangai and a VPN is not required to reach our API, so if the game requires it, it is not caused by Unity. You can assume your game will be playable from China while using our API.
