  1. Since the last maintenance on the 17th, I couldn't access or log into PSO2!!! Why is that? & till when will it be this way?

  2. Well, about my question of last update… I made the Tweaker restore Back-ups between the beginning of the Maintenance and downloading the patch, it still downloaded a lot more than written here. I don't really understand… But as long as it doesn't make me risk anything with my account…

    Does it happens to someone else?

    1. You too… I never had any problem downloading more, it's just strange and longer.
      I didn't think about the Story Patch updates but maybe Courina is right. Maybe we should try contacting someone from Arks Layer to know their thoughts about it.

  3. …I wonder what that patch was for. certainly didn't fix the UI glitch with storage, tile view, and having more than nine rows of items visible.
