Other Stuff

  • Don't forget, today is the last day to type in the secret phrase!
  • Sega has created a special team dedicated in discovering bugs for the development team. Once they discover a bug, the development team will fix the issue and check over it repeatedly until it resolves. By taking this approach, some future updates have been pushed back as a result. As is the case of the December update which now spans two months instead of one and the Item Customization System being moved to January. (Append) There's been a lot of confusion as to whether or not SEGA had a QA team prior to the formation of this bug checking team. Yes PSO2 does have its own QA team, but this bug checking team was formed as a means to provide a stronger testing environment before distributing updates to the public. The point of this whole thing was to inform you that they changed the way they carried out their internal testing.
