Actually, a massive amount of SEA players not only was against allowing Western players into the SEA servers, but would chastise, mock and attack any Western player that asked to be let in in any official SEA channel.
I am not talking of "One or two trolls" but a very large and sizeable amount of SEA players, including some of the most famous and experienced ones, and that had the most social media presence.
I am not going to say names because you know who you are and so does every single Western player that happened upon the PSO2 SEA FB group or website.
Nonetheless, i support allowing SEA players into the server in the very same fashion as i support xbox players getting the pc exclusive cosmetics despite how many of them refused to support the same for PC.
Hopefully, in the future, our community will stop with all the pointless in-fighting and region/platform wars.
Ugh... This thing again. Your opinion really depends on who you're asking. I played PSO2 SEA back when it was still a thing, and I NEVER heard anything about Western players or them being "discriminated".
Not in the game, but it happened in the social media and forums a lot.
Obviously, you would not see discrimination within the game because very few people bothered to illegally join the SEA server and when they did they just played and enjoyed the game instead of fighting others.
But people asking in the official channels/facebook page to be let in, and especially during the two weeks that the company accidentally dropped the IP ban thus allowing US/EU players to join and then suddenly re-instated it, were attacked by dozens of SEA players supporting the IP ban.
Ultimately, you can deny it as much as you want, but i was one of the people who were campaigning (and officially reaching the SEA providers) for SEA to become the official English speaking server (as at the time NA had not been announced) and i know full well what i had to argue with daily.
Maybe you did not notice it because you were too busy enjoying the game to see what was happening in the background? lol
