So I logged in after the update today and started the usual routine: knock out some dailies, look at the scratch, visit my auxiliary. I'm pretty happy with how I've customized him. He's supposed to be a classic-style butler.
Except today I'm not greeted with a "Good day, Master", but "Good day, Handler." What happened here? Has my fancy butler been reduced to the role of a dog? Before he was a companion under my employ, but now he's considered a lesser being?
Isn't this the opposite of how PSO's NA release has been treating these topics? I thought the point was to change things that those in charge deemed offensive for a global audience. I get the Slave series change to Raven. It was a minor inconvenience searching shops for a bit but the rationale was there.
This on the other hand takes the term "Master" that was in no way offensive and switches it to something that's incredibly demeaning. Who thought this was a good idea?
