Can we have an in-game report function for symbol art porn, or just ban symbol art altogether?

It's stuff like this, being the reason why people want Symbol arts banned, because we have people that can't seem to use it properly.

I'd like an option to report people using symbol arts for stuff like this.

Before you can say "But Kofina, you can go into settings>>graphic options>> hide symbol arts"!!! That isn't the point, people like this, are the reason why we player in general, can't have nice things implemented in games like PSO2/NGS.

It might also be the reason why there's things such as height restrictions in NA, and you can blame your fellow "players" for this.

I’d hate to be limited to just using paid for stamps myself. But the game is rated M, and online interactions are not rated by the ERSB, meaning that it’s up to Sega to apply personal policies into the players using their services.

So the only thing we can do is block, report, or hide symbol arts until they do something about it

GM's openly said its against the rules and report it when you see it. The M rating means nothing.

And @Kofi9867 delete the image of you don't want a forum ban. The GM's are going to throw the book at you for posting a vivid picture despite it being another player.

@Zeke Yeah he has a point, I would take that photo down just in case.

Done and done. Still, something should have been done about it since base PSO2, they've had more than enough time. (Then again, that could be said for a lot of things in PSO2NGS)

I love how this remained a thing since PSO DC. /s

Haven't seen a single porn SA on JP server, seems like most JP players are using the stamps rather than SAs.

Only time I saw SA (not porn) was when I went back to PSO2 block to cash in some SG stuff.

Of course both versions would have different cultures, and NA is ate up by memes and lewd symbol arts all the way back from black ops era. XD

I still can't fathom how Sega thought it was a good thing to emplement custom SA and not realizing that it WILL be abused in any way. Maybe the japanese playerbase is way more mature about this topic, but with the western mentality regarding hentai...? A bit naive if you ask me

I personally feel that the actions of a few should not affect the rest of the player base that use the system as a way to express themselves, oftentimes in rather hilarious manners. If there ever comes a time when they're more stamps to utilize that capture the same effect as symbol arts, then maybe we can re-visit the topic and reassess.

However, I do agree that there should be an easier way to report questionable Symbol Art. Especially now that gold sellers are using it to spam their websites (and hiding themselves to make it difficult to find them). THAT is getting annoying very quickly.

Yes I've had instances of players appearing by a ryuker device, sending a symbol art and leaving the block so quickly they can't be reported. Probably they're quickly cycling through all the blocks and the report evasion is just a consequence, but it's still annoying.


As for symbol art, didn't players in the early days of PSO2 report getting just their symbol art ability blocked? I don't recall it happening recently but it seems that's an enforcement action GMs had for PSO2 and may have in NGS as well.

I saw one of them sitting in the tree by the outdoor cafe area. I chuckled a bit and then reported them.

Early this morning I found one hiding behind some crates, spamming SA for a gold selling site. Was mildly amusing yet still 100% annoying.

If they're in the sector you can just select them using Communication > Nearby Characters, no? You don't need to physically find them, I don't think. Or does that list now have a distance limit?

Probably. I admit I had just woken up and had not had my morning tea, so while I was physically awake, my brain was most certainly not.
