So it's come to my attention over the past few weeks that most characters outside of the basic ASCII set aren't allowed to be sent in chat, even though they can display ingame. Japanese characters cannot be sent at all and even some WEAPON NAMES cannot be said in chat due to this even with all English settings on.
For example, the Dual Säbels is a 4* Soaring Blade weapon that literally cannot have its name said in chat. As with any other cases of this, the chat simply refuses to send it.
This was never a problem on Japanese PSO2 as all characters can be attempted to be sent, even if the font doesn't support them.
Please just make this work like Japanese PSO2 and let us send messages without character restrictions. This is a 100% downgrade and unacceptable.
