If you refuse to be quiet about it maybe make a post inside
I did: https://forum.pso2.com/topic/11533/unified-service-for-ngs-between-global-and-jp?page=1
I did so a while ago; hey maybe it'll gain traction again. I am not going to be quiet about it in this thread or any thread where it is relevant either.
Best of luck to you.
The people who got hit with the IP block didn't get spit on by Sega. Calm down your life isnt over because of it. I'm happy that you are calling them out on it. Sega is a trash company compared to a while ago. Sega does not care if FF14 lets you play on any server. Sega does not care how long you stuck with their game.
If someone supported PSO2 over the years then suddenly got blocked from accessing their account, how is that not Sega spitting on them? Answer, it is Sega spitting on them. Also, if Sega doesn't care about FFXIV then they are making the same mistake Blizzard is making with WoW. Also, if Sega doesn't care about the players that have been supporting their game for many years, then that is disrespecting their players. If another game in the market is doing incredibly well, the proper course of action is not to ignore them, but to try to steal ideas from them. Yoshi P had the FFXIV devs play WoW when ARR was being developed as WoW was the top MMO at the time of ARR's development, and they expanded on from there and reached this point where WoW refugees are a thing.
Sure you can't copy everything, but service models? That is one of the easiest things you can copy and adapt ideas from.
Who did the IP block? Was it Sega of Japan? Maybe they just want to keep their servers "superior"
Welcome to being "inferior" hope you stick around.
I don't have to because I can bypass the IP block due to having the technical skills to do so. I can set up an EC2 proxy and it wouldn't even be detected as a VPN; they would just see it as a computer in Japan due to how the proxy works. There is even a tutorial on how someone can do it on the PSO2 subreddit (just search PSO2 EC2 Cloud PC on google), but it is still needs a bit of technical skill.
However, just because I have the technical skills to do so, doesn't mean others do, so I am going to be vocal about it. Those people who can't and aren't sticking around? Well Sega just lost money, something that they should care about.

@Ashe-Kinsilla But most here will admit global IS in fact the superior client. And some here have admitted to dropping global due to that.
You mean global is the inferior client or JP is the superior client right? I think you made a typo. XD

The right (and profitable) thing to do would be to give the foreign players a one time pass transfer to Global ver with all of their paid stuff if they don’t want them on their version anymore. Their drastic move only pissed off paying customers that don’t want to start over again, so they quit the game for good. Some of these players probably sunk thousands of dollars over the years for the only version of the game they could play because SEGA took years to bother with it. It’s a slap in the face to the support they received, this just isn’t how you treat fans who spend money on your product. I never played JP, I have no personal feelings about it but I think it was a shortsighted move. Global is an inferior version. We’re excluded from collabs but are never given a western show or something collab to replace it, we just get nothing. I would have loved to participate in the Madoka collab but it just didn’t happen.
Eh, they would still lose people because they would still be separated from the server they had played on for many years, meaning they may be separated from JP players that they became with. Not to mention, there are people who moved to JP to get away from things like the censorship in Global as well as having access to JP only items and collabs. The right, easiest, and most profitable thing to do is to just let oversea players play on JP. I feel that the whales are more like to either quit to bypass the IP block, so the ability to transfer off JP wouldn't do much in my opinion.
