Hey Blizzard, you have customers in the Middle East!

This is frustrating for Blizzard customers in Saudi Arabia. I’ve been a World of Warcraft subscriber for a few years and now I want to buy the Authenticator from the Blizzard store but I can’t because they do not ship to Saudi Arabia. Seriously Blizzard?? You can ship to India (and others listed on their site) but nothing for customers in the Middle East?

And don’t get me started on Starcraft 2, if I wanted to play at crap lag I need to play on EU servers and buy the EU game and if I want to play with people I know in the US (and crappier lag) I need to pay AGAIN. Seriously? What part of INTERNET do you not get Blizzard?
