Notification icons

New measures in response to the server load. (Update)

Notification icons and numbers will no longer update when logging into the game during an Emergency Quest. As illustrated by the screenshot above, this measure affects the notifications that display in the "Community" section of the Main Menu.

This change will target the following situations:

  • Mail
  • Friend Requests
  • Team Invites
  • Campaign Reward notifications. (The [!] icon above the Visiphone.)

Please note that this change merely affects the notification number and icon that displays on the main menu. These will display normally when the character logs into the game when an Emergency Quest is not occurring. The notification icon can also display when something new arrives during an Emergency Quest.

Sega stated there were mistakes in the original content of this message that was posted on November 10th.

  1. I'm starting to think that sega needs to just buy better servers already. disabling features one by one untill the server software is lightweight to run is going to end up making a huge mess and it doesn't seem to have made a difference yet.

    I think it's bloody hilarious that they're now going to make notifications fail to update during EQs and force people to relog after an EQ stops in order to get them to update while next week they're going to be adding in yet another thing that spits notifications at people. (notifications for every GJ you get with a comment on it)

  2. Oh yes Sega please remove more features to 'help' with the server load. Like it wasn't annoying enough when you removed being able to use free partners which left me to relying on my friends to use it and the last time that happened was around the middle of October T_T. I mean come on it is a TERA and casts buffs, heals, and WB quite often :'(.

    And unless you a replacing those triggers with any of the Falz bosses you are seriously messed up in the head. I've never heard one person do a trigger party for anything besides for Gunne, obviously for those sweet sweet units XD.

  3. SEGA is so stubborn! All they need to do is fix the routing of their server and of course upgrade their server with more ECC memory or something.

    1. though it can be done with the server upgrades, i doubt they'd fix the routing of their server. they basically did that to stop the DDoS, and probably wont fix it since everyone in japan has no problems.

    2. they didn't do anything with the routing. yahoo japan did. sega can't do a thing about it because it's not their hardware and software that's the problem.

      it's like yelling at a taxi driver because the city demolished a bridge.

    3. They did as requested by SEGA JP yes?

      The relationship of that type of costumer is different from the normal guy who gets a internet service so they can demand more than a regular costumer can.

    4. i dont think it's such a coincidence that, by themselves only, did the routing changes when the server came back from DDoS. the coincidence is too good to be true.

      i dont know, if that were true, then there should be other websites hosted by which is now unreachable to outsiders as well. at the very least, i havent seen any reports of it. just pso2

    5. I think that the few routes of japan are getting congested by people who use alternate means to access the game *ahem*

  4. so sega haven't noticed eh? I've been playing in some shitty private server (other MMO) before and it crashed 8 out of 10 times when any whole-server notice occurred.

  5. I don`t know its valid or not but
    i think its because of the lobby video in-game download
    i realize that while downloading the video the download often failed and then it reconnect again and again even if the game itself not Disconnected, the problem here is once the download failed the next attempt of download will start from "0 bytes" again, as the download getting failed and failed my PC getting slow and slow, so i assume that the game not releasing the resource it used for the failed download and keep communicating to server while starting a new download and make a heavy server load.

    note: there is a time when i epic failed to download the video
