Many people are waiting for an English Patch or an NA/EU Release.
English Patch:EDIT May 2018: There is a Vietnamese patch that is currently functional, showing that a patch is possible. However, no English patch exists and there is no team working on an English patch.
NA/EU Release: Tencent made a new announcement (January 2017) confirming they plan to release NA/EU servers, but did not indicate when this would happen or any details whatsoever. The video with the announcement is below (video is in Chinese).
still no patch has been attempted; i'm sure its not impossible, but the tech hurdles are somewhat discouraging (from what I understand, a hash check is done everytime you launch the game, so its hard to replace files without getting caught; the alternative would be to code an overlay for the game but I am not at all sure about how effective that would be. plus tencent is pretty sensitive about what programs are running alongside the game, so running an overlay app would increase the possibilities of getting banned)
No official news sorry, like I said in my last post here, nothing was mentioned this year's "annual outlook" vid (they mention the words international version, but all references went to the new KR version, nothing about NA/EU).
Hopefully after KR settles down they will finally announce something next year. Let's hope for the best.
No news sorry. We last heard rumors in December 2017 that they were recruiting for overseas testing, but that's it. No English patch either. There is a Vietnamese patch floating around on the internet for those interested though.
Mostly the latter lol, no announcement yet on who will be bringing it to the West. Nexon has done all the localization work so far (Korea and Taiwan) so they may be the ones to do so, but again, nothing official has come out. Personally I'm hopeful that Tencent is working on their WeGame International Edition (basically Chinese Steam) and that they will localize MBO on their own.

dimechime: the mmos.com link that tells you how to get a qq account is not 110% accurate, tencent changed the interface for registering a number

dimechime: in addition, QQ International has been removed from the Google Play Store, so if you want to use the phone app method you must use the Chinese app that is still alive on the Play Store

dimechime: to my understanding everything else should still be up to date though!

dimechime: Hi, if you take a look at the installation guide, that page is for the "Real ID Verification" system. You'll need to either get your hands on a valid Chinese ID, or talk to Tencent customer service (they'll ask for a pic of your passport/other gov't ID).
