Players are already getting banned and are angry because

They're using vpns to try and play on the Japanese servers and constantly changing their IPs, you know how long they've been asking for NA to be blocked from their servers? Lol

And people kept calling me "xenophobic" for telling people Sega doesn't care too much for players outside of Japan.

@Zeke

Well there IS a reason for this. Past experiences with base PSO2 and a rather rowdy and immature group of NA players (And symbol art spammers) were on several blocks, so a group of JP players decided to try and pressure SEGA to implement IP blocks, basically... "No gaijin please." JP ONRY truly is a thing.

Most of the spammers have moved to global, rarely see any of that anymore.

The event that drew the ire of JP players was the 2012 hack that happened with the hackers bragging openly in English.
