23 thoughts to “PSO2 JP: Extended Maintenance and Patch (04/24/2019)”

  1. Hmm~ maintenance is earlier this week.
    I hope it will not be extended because the server down time is pretty long.
    Well, then again there is a reallife too. XD

    1. I’m going to recover my friend.

      Maybe.

      PSO2 HYPE, nothing more and nothing to worry about.

    1. 5:00 and 17:00 are literally the same time
      One is less confusing to the part of the world who dont use AM PM standard

    2. Let us thank the OP for this empirical demonstration of why the AM/PM notation is stupid and the military etc. just go with 24.

      And bad maths.

  2. I’m thankful that the maintenance started early it gives those who have weaker internet signals plenty of time to download the patch before servers are up

    here’s hoping SEGA doesn’t **** it up, who am I kidding of course they will

  3. What do you want?
    A short maintenance, and a bug? Bug on phantom? Bug on balances? Bug on story? Bug on Wild Easter? (look on what happened with the last Chocolate event)
    Or a longer maintenance, without bugs?

    To me, it’s the second one I want. We all have all the time after the maintenance to enjoy the game, so wait the end of maintenance and enjoy without bugs.
    That kids, these days…

    1. Too bad you get a long maintenance and bugs!
      Though, maint time has nothing to do with bugs. Maint is to turn off the servers, change the files, make backups and updates, check the hardware to make sure it’s all working, and then start the servers up. Most of that time is probably turning off, backup, and turning back on. bugs come from development on beta testing servers you don’t have any access too anyway.

  4. These posts keep mentioning that Rockbear is being replaced by Fang Banther for Forest Exploration, which is incorrect, since it’s being replaced by Fang Banshee.

  5. Does changing my existing 35+ 13* wep into the one needed for phantom lvl 80 unlock work ? if not i seriously played myself

    1. It’ll be put up on the Bingo page tonight (You can find the Arks Bingo page on the sidebar)

      Sorry for the delay, phantom has been too fun.
