Today I got disconnected from the game because of ISP issues and then I tried to run the game again and it can't get through the gameguard phase,I tried to restart the client for a few times,and still failing,and I thought,"Hey maybe some of the game files are corrupted,let's try to verify the game files through steam",and oh boy what a grave mistake that I was made. I verified the game and in a matter of seconds,it's done,and told me that I need to download the whole game again,THE WHOLE 70GB!!! FML!!! XD. This maybe not a problem for people with Ultra fast connection,but my slow crappy Asian internet connection will take minimum 1 day just to download the game.
I just want to warn people so they won't make the same mistake that I did.
NEVER EVER VERIFY PSO2 GAME FILES IF YOU'RE A STEAM CLIENT USER!!!
This is so stupid,this is the 1st time happened to me,after all of this years I'm using steam and playing MMOs through steam. This shouldn't be happened at all,actually this is an amateurish mistake from PSO2 dev team,even games from indi dev from early access never done this to me.
You add GLOBAL in your game name now,that means almost THE WHOLE WORLD can play your game,the dev should already know this world doesn't have the same connection speed and quality,this verify files feature is crucial for game with big file size.
I have my lessons now,after this I'm gonna backed up the games in my other hard drive so that if this happened again I can just delete the whole game folder and copy paste the back up
And for the PSO2 dev team,I hope you guys can fix this issues so that future and present PSO2 players that have client issues can fix their problem much faster and efficiently.
Just remember DON'T EVER VERIFY YOUR PSO GAME FILES AND MAKE BACK UP YOUR PSO2 GAME FOLDER!
Well at least until there's a confirmation from PSO2 team that that have fixed this issues
