    1. If they're working on the server hardware, that's going to add quite a bit of time to the maintenance. They may be changing out servers or replacing faulty hardware.

  1. It probably takes 10 hours just to get of that horrible song off the servers that they play over and over and over again. Can't get out of my head.

    1. You mean the Sonic Adventure 2 remix theme or something like that? Talk about a pain. I can't stop putting off my headphones when I'm on lobby just no to ear it. That's the first time I do it since I began playing… But I believe it's not the first time it was put as the Lobby theme.

  2. Good they are working on server equipment , perhaps after the update it will be less laggy..well done sega, actually got your priorities straight for once.

  3. Maybe to clean the hacker mess that used to say "Test <3" on the chat and make everyone die on the lobby the a message with (-_-) appears etc. A damn website that wants to sell PSO2 hacks…

    If I get IP banned and unable to stay logged with a VPN because of them then this will be my last online game.

    1. That happened to you, too? I was doing the limited quest and got the pm from "" with "test." Then I died, and my client crashed. Didn't have a problem since, but glad it wasn't just me.

    2. Honestly, I haven't been paying too much attention to the block I am on. I just search for party on current block, and then other blocks if there aren't any. I was in a Hard instance of the limited quest, though.

    3. the blocks are set up so you can party with people near your ability lvl. 04 and 05 for hard – 06 and 07 for VH – and 10-19 for SH. doing an eq in b20 is not advised – that's pretty much a social only block unfortunately.

    4. Just curiosity, what is your Ship, guys? I never saw that on mine… (And I'm happy it didn't happen too)

    5. i got that too but didnt died, just… got the PM, i was on a mission, maybe was it.
      never saw that again…and i hope that i dont see it anymore.
      but was creepy, i mean, a hack on PSO2 servers,at last i congrats the guy who made it for making such thing, and i thank him for showing the exploit that is probably fixed now =P

  4. Can't stick around, hafta keep movin' on! Guess what lies ahead, only one way to find out!
    I'll just keep movin ahead! No time for guessing, follow my plan instead! Trusting in what you can see, take my lead I'll set you free
    Follow me
    Set me free
    Trust me and we will
    I'll make it through, prove it to you!

  5. Interesting to see that there's actually a sizeable amount of main hunters. I thought the previous released statistics were only so high due to everyone subbing the class.

    1. Yeah but most of those are using a multiclass weapon from sub and pretending they are a hunter 😉

  6. Humans as most popular race…
    then Deumen
    and finally Newman

    The statistics puzzle me (why so many humans?), but at least we can say so much for Cast Supremacy eh? And at least more people are making men now.

    1. Because female humans.

      They're the best, and have the greatest AC outfits~!

      All other races can go home, no contest.

  7. Are English Vita user SOL with the "Happy Birthday" promotion because we can't use Japanese Kana?

    1. You can. Go to the Vita settings and add the japanese keyboard from the languages option.

  8. I heard that the server will still be down until further notice on twitter which is 25. And may still be delayed again like 23 (which is today)

    1. I think you read it wrong. Twitter says that the update for June 25 will be postponed until further notice and Sega will release a follow up this June 24 1500 JST. It is still unclear when the servers will resume its service again.
