  1. Why don’t they just say ‘PSO2 is offline on the 4th of April while we turn the cloud service on?’

    1. Because it’s also part of their regular scheduled maintenance? It’s not like they specifically chose a maintenance day to bring down PSO2 JUST to integrate the cloud.

  2. lmao it’s not like the only update is the cloud service implementation. Maybe you need to take a breather from PSO2 if extended maintenance is enough to make you this salty.

    1. I’m more salty about the fact that they clearly needed to do a server test on Cloud, since I’ve passed every test except getting the console online. meaning it’s bugging out purely due to ‘network congestion’.

    1. Since the reward isn’t instantly delivered there’s a chance it will be the same like how skill reset pass delivered. You might need the qualifying characters still exist at the moment of delivery.

  3. Unable to connect from US despite very fast internet and a great 5ghz router. Looks like this will not be a way we can play this game.

  4. in Canada only a bit of time that my switch got auto disconnect and i’m Connected to a 5GHz route with a bit about 2 sec of lag

  5. in order to complete the lv up event i have to create a new account, because i just created a new character but i’m not winning any prize
