  1. "Sega is implementing two measures in response to their investigation into the server load."

    I wonder how these could possibly be causing any noticeable amount of lag for the whole servers…

    1. Yes its great news but i really doubt that is the issue, If it fixes the server Load i will be very surprised. But i do kinda remember that a while back before free NPCs where added, the lag wasn't as bad, but still doubt it will fix it. Good on SEGA for taking some action finally.

  2. Something I don't understand: I did the two parts of the pre-patch (So if it can answer previous question too, yes you could download two pre-patches between last wednesday and yesterday), and just finished the final part of the patch. It's said 221Mo here but the Tweaker made me downoad 412.95/413.11Mo to totally end it. Why? I guess I have an idea about that but no clue knowing if it's the right reason or not.
    I keep this question in mind since a long time because it's not the first time at all.

    1. Just a bit of advice, 😛 Its better to wait for maint day and download the patch in full, There have been some issues in the past SEGA managed to rectify, but its always better to wait if an issue like yours has arisen. I personally had the same problem, then all of a sudden i had to redownload the patches all over again. xD

    2. I don't know, honestly the only pre-patch I didn't do was the first one, but nothing was different, nothing to re-download with pre-patches… My thoughts were just that some files are certainly just updated, so for exemple this 221Mo this time is the total size of new content, the rest are old files updated so it wasn't count, but I'm really curious to know some other ideas about that.

    3. did you remove the opening video files and forgot to put them back before patching?

    4. If you were talking to me, I didn't change anything about these videos. I read somewherer that sometimes, the game wouldn't react after lauching and stays on a black screen so I didn't change anything.

  3. I hope it don't have anything to do with someone stealing information from SEGA servers to do their own private server. Hacking surely lags stuff and it will be probably illegal.

    Also it's possible that SEGA's server routing is finally taking it's toll. Yahoo of Japan's fault for not announcing the routes to the world.

    1. "I hope it don’t have anything to do with someone stealing information from SEGA servers to do their own private server. Hacking surely lags stuff and it will be probably illegal."

      For the record all of the data that is being used to work on the private server is all done on the clientside, not PSO2Proxy, not PSO2, I'm doing nothing to their servers. c:

      Just clearing that up~

  4. S Roll JA Bonus falling to 10% only
    now thinking where that 9 SP will goes to…
    Celestial bullet Potential only gave maximum 50 HP

    that`s some BIG Downgrade

    1. ok, time for gunners to feel the nostalgia train like Gunner were on EP1 TwT bye-bye cool 3k-4k damage per hit and hello 1k damage per hit TwT /

    2. yeap, back then, I had to compensate the gunner's lack of firepower with my skill, so I invested a lot of hours just experimenting and practicing techniques on how to be a good tmg user.

      but, enemies back then were a lot easier compared to now, gunners like me…we're gonna need to step up our game again xD
      gotta admit though, the JA roll bonus made me sort of lazy when it comes to using gunner… I still do comboes but most of the time, it's just JA > infi fire…

  5. I think it's good… I'm a gunner for years and love it not because it's Guld Milla's OP or Stylish Roll OP… But I really love tmg and that kicks :3 as Bouncer Jet boots failed to impress me so I keep playing as gunner…

    I JA-Sroll much with it, because it is the only way to get maximum damage with gunner… but sometime I do normal JA combo just too rare, and I hope this balancing could lessened how many times I need to Sroll… But actually it's already a habit for me X_x…

    Guld Milla? I'm graduated from Guld Milla long ago, as I found it's too OP and make everything way too easy, I dare I can even Solo loser if I want but that's just a waste of time because I can't Record it o_O… H44 Missouri T is my favorite for now in term of design and elegance… not to mention it has good potential (atleast for yesterday, before the nerf)… And of course I want that Fubuki Rinka :3 so cute…

    Sorry this is just my rants :3 I hope most (true) gunner have the same Idea as me…

    1. guld mila reduced my expenses on mates to zero (not to mention, it keeps the perfect keeper skill active) xD
      I only buy monomates to feed my mag, hehe

      I also keep a "main tmg," (presently, it's the H44 or pandora extreme) guld mila is just sorta like a sidearm when I need hp restoration.

  6. If they have so many issues with ja s-roll, why not remove it and give gunners a new ability? The pre-requisites are shit anyway.

  7. >clusterbullet nerfed

    ah, just as I was starting to get used to how to aim it. though I will admit that pulling 20k+ with properly aimed shots when not being particularly tricked out was kinda crazy. for something that comes out that quick.

    > s-roll JAB 110%

    chain, you gunners! CHAAAAAAAIN!

    >•The color changing entry in the Beauty Salon has changed to only be selectable for a costume that supports it, even when you do not possess a color changing pass. (Though you won’t be able to access that menu without the pass.)

    …wasn't it that way already, sega?

    1. I don't think it let you, or I wasn't able to. I know for cast the color change options are all greyed out, so this would be nice if it lets you preview it with casts. 😀

    2. @ -Z- and Kouki, it's nothing exciting. All that happened was, they made the menu no longer grey out if you have an outfit that can change colors. However, you still can't access the menu without the pass, so it's basically just a pop-up ad for the color changing pass.

  8. Dunno what page you put the balance adjustments on, but the development team says the changed Panic so enemies will no longer attack the towers during Mine Defense. I feel like that's pretty huge, before panicked enemies would target the closest thing (including, and often especially, the towers), but now Panic is actually useful defensively.
