@Vicodin-Villian What you're saying is exactly the issue. There are many active hate groups in PSO2JP, and just from the few days online, its become apparent that they intend to bring that level of content towards the NA release. Its not even a small problem -- its easy to see in any large lobby that has more than just a small handful of people.
These issues need to be addressed, from the get-go. Allowing it to grow will not only hurt the players, but it'll do damage to the game itself.
I strongly agree with you; there should be an active method of taking down hateful or offensive content, up to and including account suspension upon reviews of reports. Hate should have no place in a game like PSO2, and it's only going to get worse what with VOIP being built directly into the english launch of the game.
I think this issue was largely ignored on PSO2JP because the overwhelming majority of players on PSO2JP speak Japanese and only Japanese, or have a limited understanding of the language which allows such treatment to slip by. It cannot be ignored here, however.
The irony is that back when I played PSO Blue Burst and Phantasy Star Universe between 2002 and 2010, I don't remember nearly that level of offensive or deliberately hateful content in symbol art.
