Playing From China?Follow

I really enjoyed FFXI "back in the day", but didn't even realize that FFXIV had been released until a few days ago. Unfortunately, I've been relocated to China for a year. China seems hit and miss with MMOs as I can play WAR, but not EQ2. Can play EQ1 but not Vanguard. So I was wondering if anyone knows if FFXIV can be played from a Chinese IP? I made the mistake of reactivating EQ2 and not being allowed to play and don't want to fork over even more money for nothing. Thanks to anyone who knows!

SE Dev stated that they block all Chinese IPs from the NA/EU/JP servers, but will release the game in China and have Chinese specific servers.

You can only play if you can set up a proxy, or similar work around, to get in using a non-chinese IP. This should not be hard to find out how to do, as tons of people have to do this in China to get around the great Chinese firewall anyway, etc.
