Am I the only one here who thinks the community is kinda bad?

The forums are swarming with extreme SJW's who will try to report you, or curse you out for any sort of reason. Certain discord channels are ran by trigger happy people who get upset on a whim, for any reason, and people who want to maintain their ability to socialize suck up to them. If you don't agree with them, you simply get banned after they personally swear at you, or call you buzzword names that only extreme sjw's understand.

The toxicity of 3rd party social platforms like these forums, and discord channels compared to any other MMO with similar outlets is just revolting. Everyone is always trying to crap on someone else, or power-tripping, or crying crocodile tears, or being angry schizophrenic messes.

Some people have a weakened ego for their own reasons, and will take anything personally (and negatively). It's really just understanding their (sad) situation and not 'taking the bait'. I hope you get over it!

Yes to all, and some of those people are the GMs moderating this game.

I wish JP didn't implement an IP ban

@JudgementCut Well if you are willing to spend around 40 cents a month and a bit of initial set up time, you can bypass the IP block by using an EC2 cloud PC as a proxy. It isn't detectable as a VPN and shouldn't have any traffic issues as you are the only person using this proxy.

There was a post on the PSO2 subreddit on this about 3 months ago. You'll have to search for it, but it has all of the steps on how to do it.

Yeah, the community does kinda suck and it does somewhat have an SJW problem (look back at ppl getting overly triggered of words like "master", "slave", etc being in the game), but I really don't see them (SJWs) on this forum. Direct me to some examples if I'm wrong here?

PSO2 Discord is probably full of them, yes-- same with Reddit and Twitter, but thats the case for every game nowadays and really isn't news. Just don't interact with them. They suck at video games anyway and spend most of their time whining about things unrelated to gaming, lol.

GMs are also SJW throwing around instant permanent bans for symbol arts and bad language in chat (WHICH IS FILTERED) for first offense. They're going to make this game's death faster. Inb4 sega explodes from GDPR fines for denying private data as these GMs think they have more power than European law hahaha.

The censorship and symbol art removal were and is excellent moves Sega did for the mental health assessment of the game. They took responsibility for the atmosphere and clean it up. Great job Keep up the great work. I am 💯 percent in agreement of those moves.

@Rain-Gnyu it's more of the sad reality that the global community couldn't handle it. The things that got censored on global and symbol arts are still very much alive on the JP servers as players there aren't as immature as the global community spamming porn everywhere.

Yet the game is healthier on JP than it is on Global; JP is objectively a better server too.

Yeah and the game is pretty dead and kind of scary to play because there isn't even a ToS explaining what can get you permabanned, it just happens, first offense, no warnings.

Take JP in comparison, it's much healthier.

That means the problem is people like you.

Disagree completely. Sega's idea of fixing things is to ruin it for the majority that weren't doing anything wrong, the same thing happened with trading. I have never once posted an SA that was against ToS. Sega are just too lazy to put things in place to stop it from happening.
