Disclose WHY the height limit was put in place

I'm order to improve communication and decrease speculation, I think it would be great to hear WHY the decision was made to put in a height limit. As of right now the community is completely speculating, and this might have even led to semi-conspiracy levels of speculation.

In order to get future conversations to be based on reality, I would like a disclosure for why the height limit was put in place.

This is not to request that the height limit be kept in place or removed.

We have gotten a GM response http://forum.pso2.com/post/80470

Further Detail:

Just to clarify, the reason for this suggestion was to understand what decisions being made, so that further suggestions can work within the creators limitations, and be actual actionable items for the dev team.

As of right now, conversation had devolved into the community attacking itself. We need to come to a compromise, but not within the community, we needed to come to a compromise with the devs themselves.

I am looking for the limitations that the decision maker has, what they are not willing to compromise on, so we can come to a compromise if we need to.

I would like an explanation of all content as well, but I am hoping limiting the scope would allow for an easier time answering the question.

Suggestions that try to compromise:

  1. An alternative solution for the height restriction condition - introduces a toggle option.
  2. Inner wear or body paint for characters under a certain height (like Al in episode 4)

If they wanted to tell you why, then they would of and threads about censorship wouldn't exist anymore. That's your answer.

The forum fight will continue until they either revert the censorship or explain why the height limit was put in the first place.

But the problem is, the GMs don't know why the limit is there in the first place. They can only pass up the message to SoJ.

Hmm, questionable. Since day one feedback we've been giving them has not been reaching the dev team at all. Which means one of two things.

  1. Feedback is being silenced instead of passed along

  2. The dev team has blacklisted the GM's from sending feedback.

Personally i think its number 2 as it seems like even the GM's are getting frustrated with not being able to get through to the dev team at all. You can sorta tell the situation with the whole out of control censorship is frustrating them a bit because they are the ones stuck having to police the topic, and the Dev team is just not being vocal or cooperative with them at all.

@Zizel I would think feedback is getting through since the SG Scratch was extended from September to January, and the duration of the SG Scratch was a huge criticism about it. I think it is more of a delay in the devs getting it and no communication back from the devs.

It doesn't have to mean feedback is silenced or GMs can't reach devs- A more plausible and simple explanation would just be that the Devs don't want to acknowledge censorship. They know it's not popular and if they are going to revert it- they are at the point where they would likely do it without an announcement. Afterall- admitting your mistakes as a multi-million dollar corporation always feels like a dangerous thing?... Though it would definitely garner more support for the franchise if there was any transparency. This is why you sometimes see devs change something much later that they never acknowledged in the first place even existing under the guise of "Oh- it was a bug!..".. To try to appease people but also keep their reputation and stance clean.

Basically- the devs don't care about consumer concerns. Just their reputation and their money. With NA being much easier to sell microtransactions to(literally buying into them no questions asked)- They never have to really support the game with anything but... more things to spend real money on.

You people NEED to be banned by this point if you're going to continue spamming new threads every day.

Thanks for the bump. You're really helping the same threads out y'know. Keeping them active and at the top of the list. Some get locked because of the same trolls- so naturally the threads will keep popping up in new ways. There used to be a singular thread that caught everything with 1000+ posts- but all good things come to an end?

And more people become aware of it over time- especially with the recent youtube video which brings new people searching for reasons. You can just ignore them... If you have an issue you want people to take note of- just make your own topic.

@Ephemiel It isn't spam if they are coming from different people. Plus this post is different in that it is asking for an official statement of why. It is more about the lack of communication between Global and the devs.

you clearly cant read which has been evident a few times before. the op is asking why. if that is ban worthy then your attacks against others shouldve gotten you banned a long time ago.

Id like to know as well why the restrictions have been put in place. People claim to know why like they work at sega but cant provide a source to back what theyre saying.

If height really is a problem then they should make every auxiliary normal height. Seems strange to censor just players.

Not very smart are you.

And look how active the chat is because of your single post. 4- 5 new comments in the last couple of minutes? The point stands- you're doing more for this thread than anyone else in here. It hasn't even passed a single page yet and you're half of it. Glorious.

Well- back to the topic at hand.

It honestly seems like you are the one obsessed with naked kids since you like to fling that around so casually.

Ephemiel just step away for a few days to cool your jets.

Resolving to insults and outright posting unnecessary posts cause you are frustrated is not good for you nor anyone else.

We want communication from the development team, we want to talk to them, ask them, figure out what their actual reasoning was and go from there.

We want to establish a line of communication akin to FFXIV which has very often talks with their community.

Is' that so terrible?

Or are you afraid of being wrong about something and us being right?
