PSO2 JP: Maintenance (3/15/2017)

Account Suspensions

Temporary or permanent account suspensions have been carried out for those who have AFK'd or abandoned ranked Battle Arena matches over a certain amount of times. Users who were caught in the suspensions will have their Arena Points set to 0. 

In the future, players who were suspended in violation of the policy will also have their Arena Points set to zero.

The suspensions carried out above applies to accounts with violations over a certain amount of times between March 1st ~ March 15th. Some suspensions within this period were unrelated to the battle arena abandonments.

Battle Arena Abandonment Policy

It has come to Sega's attention that some users have been abandoning Battle Arena matches in order to prevent the loss of Arena Points. The following countermeasure will be instituted after some point in time in March.

  • Abandoning a ranked match, regardless of its outcome, will decrease your Arena Points as if you lost the match.

The above statement will also apply even in cases of disconnections and client terminations. In addition, accounts which have been determined to intentionally abandon Ranked Matches after the release of this statement, may also be subject to temporary or permanent suspensions.

Password Matches are excluded from the policy stated above.

  1. Sorry, but I don't understand the "Say the answer to the quiz using the in-game chat to receive Star Gems tickets in the Visiphone."

    Do i need to answer that on general chat, party, team or what?

  2. PSU Anniversary 3rd time: I hope you remember this will be the 30th anniversary of the first episode in decembre this year, SEGA, because there's a lot of awesome things to do in a scratch or characters appearance… 😀

    And "Ep4 past chapter"? Then a new EP in september? xD

    More and more punishment, I wonder really what they have in head to do that when every single player is a potential source of money. Nevermind…

    1. Good to know I'm not the only one in this case.

      Justi imagine Arisa Repca Costume, Wren-Type Cast skin and Myau Mag change form… I can have lot of ideas about that.

      But I guess they remember it, when you know how much Profound Darkness fight have references to PSIV. ESCA Falz Mother have some reference too to. The real question is: "Weill they do the right things to honor it?"…

    2. yeah like he PSO music has always had throwbacks to the early games (which is AMAZING) so I'm always wondering why theres no collab stuff from old games.

      Theres a Myau statue ingame and thats….. about it. Oh also the Orakian clothes which was a name of a race from PS3.

    3. I would LOVE to see PSO2 link to the original Phantasy Star games in some way other than just a few monster and weapon names. Since we had to suffer through Earth as setting for Ep4 – they should make Algo the setting for Ep5! Set it in their past to run into Nei again! Man that would rule.. won't happen but hopefully one day Sega will tie some of them together..

    4. Yeah I have to admit I'm dreamful about EP5 linking to Algo. Return to Motabia and Dezolis, NOW it will be some useful reuse of previous things (Yay Laia Costume, how useeeeeful).

      I mean already, Mother Cluster make me tilt "Mother Brain/Mother Trinity" ok. And the BGM of Mother fight EQ is a reorchestra of "The Place of Death" BGM from PSII…

      Sigh, I never get this Myau item but I remember it was already here as a reward in Infinity.

      I want Alisa Repca! I want Wren-Type Cast! I want a "Lacon Collection Sheet"! Come on SEGA, that's not too hard to do so please think of it…

      Oh last thing; yep there's "names". I have "Neiclaw" and "Falclaw" Wired Lances in my storage (I think it's pretty rare to get now without buying it so I had a good idea keeping it, just for the fan side)

    5. Here too… very much wish they would have more items or throwbacks to the original rpgs.

  3. anyone here can tell me why only 4 or 6ppl on ranked pvp ? waiting for a few hours but still I dont get any match . D:

    1. That's no luck. And that's the reason why I abandonned Challenge Lobby, tidre of waiting for nothing because people were playing on grouped PTs so external players couldn't – or could hardly – join them.

      Haven't try the pvp yet (and with the connexion problems I have these times it's no use I guess), but I'm curious to, even if pvp is not my thing…

  4. Alatron walked along the same path alongside Mother, all the way to the top of the polls! How fitting. :3

    Also lol Emperappy.
