Share the love of the game and sometimes just give it away for free.
Only if they private message you! Love of the experience the game brings!
I'd reply to all the notifications that blew up my inbox quoting my post because some people actually tried to have a civil discussion. To those of you, sorry but I'd be here all day debating with you and that was more of an expression of my opinion and experience than a call for discussion.
But then other people decided to be hysterical, dramatical, pulling-accusations-out-of-their-ass piss babies and I ain't here for that. Your parents can deal with ya, I didn't sign up for that shit. Also if you think a company that is almost certainly (or so I hope) older than you along with their properly trained legal staff is going to fall for low tier manipulation tactics like false accusations and playing the victim in a teeny tiny forum where not even half of the game population goes to you're more delusional than you look. Go back to tumblr or twitter or whatever cesspool you inhabit now. I'm canceling cancel culture around here at least.
The legal team is unlikely to have any significant impact as there are no legal issue with the game being uncensored. If games like Senran Kagura can be sold in the west then PSO2 can be uncensored.
I go over this in greater detail in the opening post of this thread: https://forum.pso2.com/topic/6869/can-we-not-cut-out-anymore-story-scenes-and-stop-it-with-censorship-in-general
You ain't leaving. If you're not spending money you weren't going to anyway. If you want to go back to JP and deal with latency + be dependent on the translation team that, be advised, can stop whenever they want now since there's an English version and they do this free of charge as a favour to the community, go. Goooooo. SEGA makes bank either way from population keeping the in-game market running be it here or in Japan. They own the game. You can pick your flavour, they still get paid.
Outside of PvP, latency has little effect on PSO2's gameplay from my experience. Things like dodging, just guard, hit confirmation, etc. seem to be done client side rather than server side. Latency has never been that much of an issue in PSO2 JP. It is really only in PvP where this become an issue.
Also, I highly doubt the translations will stop as there is a significant english presence on JP Ship 2.
Anyhow, the existence of the JP servers moots the whole thing with there being no other alternative. Also, technically speaking, Warframe has a similar gameplay experience.
Don't worry about keeping the game alive in the West or anything. Don't worry about maintaining a healthy community and cutting elitism and backseat gaming at the root. Don't worry about aaaaanything that killed other MMOs like the publishers no longer wanting to deal with the whiny community, lack of new content, lack of events, reskins launched as new items, lack of optimization, lack of response to bug reports, etc. Worry about your bloody height and minimum censorship probably done so that SEGA can cover their asses in cases where their rating of the game will be ignored by people under the age of 17.
The game in the west doesn't need any additional help to be kept alive. So the idea that the censorship debate endangers the game is false. Also, many of those things you mentioned would likely be by separate sub teams.
By the way, this is what the ESBR M rating is:
MATURE: Titles rated M (Mature) have content that may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older. Titles in this category may contain intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content, and/or strong language.
And this is what some of you want (ESBR AO rating):
ADULTS ONLY: Titles rated AO (Adults Only) have content that should only be played by persons 18 years and older. Titles in this category may include prolonged scenes of intense violence and/or graphic sexual content and nudity.
This is false. Games like Senran Kagura are rated M or equivalent in the west. PSO2 would still be rated M if uncensored. ESRB does not consider height to be a factor in its rating, and the removed cutscenes can be found in the game's files as shown by the existence of dubbed voice lines and anything found within the game's files constitutes as part of the game's files.
FYI Microsoft doesn't support any titles with the ESBR AO rating. Neither do Sony or Nintendo. Twitch explicitly bans all games under this rating. I doubt YouTube thinks differently. If you're willing to screw over your fellow players who are also content creators over a few cutscene you can just find online then you're not friend of mine.
Food for thought. Cheers.
So the AO rating issue is completely moot.

Twisting misdirection post!
Twisting misdirection post!
to anyone who enjoys going into conversations like these
that dude won't quit the game if they remove censorship
no one likes censorship
but people like trolling and seeing other people get mad
censorship is bad and no one wants it
but it won't go away cuz microsoft knows that we won't quit no matter how much they censor as long as they leave emotes and outfits uncensored
story mode has never been all that big in gameplay most people doesn't even watch the cinematics and even those who do (i do watch them personally) will watch them once and be done with it
so censorship in story mode won't affect us much
most people are mad about the height limitations which is understandable seeing how customization and expression is a big part of this game having any limitations on that is truly annoying
i do not like it either but like i said i doubt they will be changing that
but i also don't think it will get any worse than what we currently have
we will get used to it overtime and stop complaining
microsoft knows that thus keeping the censorship
tho i would like 2 little changes
in saloon/char creation under the advanced body options/body section u can still move the slider to be lower than 152cm's but it doesn't affect the height towards the end idk if its forgotten or they just didn't care but it makes the game feel less polished if they are planning to stick with this limit they should probably change that should be rather easy
152cm ? why thats such an odd number just make it 150 its triggering my OCD ffs and think about us with sensitive OCD's when u are messing with numbers next time pls
also if i remember correctly if u try to import a char from JP that is shorter than 152 the error message says something akin to "your character must be atleast 150cm tall" which is another minor annoyance seeing how that message appears even when the char u imported is 150 or 151 OR 152 cuz despite not being shown millimeters does exist in PSO2 and the 152 limit we have is not 152.0cm its closer to something like 152.5cm
forgot to talk about the slave/raven weapons
well it seems rather odd to me that we associate the word slave with racism to begin with so i don't really understand this change
ye i know about the american history and all but still it just feels wrong to see the word slave and think of racism
the association itself feels a lot more racist than the word slave imo
unless there is another reason behind the name change i believe it was unnecessary
You are not the community! Stop speaking for the community! No one elected you to be community leader so stop trying! The subjects we are talking about is improper content! These anit-censorship wood worms are trying to circumvent proper responsible content.
Half the people playing the game now would not know anything about the so called censorship if it wasn’t for the JP veterans! These JP want to copy the same atmosphere they had on JP platform only because they want those of us to see what they did or accomplish over there.
It just a show off mentality they have to share with the community!
I personally don’t care about what they done before nor care to see it! It just a self centered way of pushing there agenda look at me bull.
I did not quote anyone ........what are you guys talking about?
Why you trying to circumvent the height restriction. You just trying to break the rules. No better than someone trying to hack the game!
@RainGnyu Let me get your rares!! Lol who am I kidding you're probably still rocking Nox weapons with Brissa Units..lol
The door is that way ------->
So you could careless about me playing the game! I always thought the community is more important. I stop playing but when I left the game I had the best nemesis units, rings crafted PA for Hunter. Which is probably 3rd rate by now! But doesn’t surprise me that some people are selfish enough to ask and not encouraging enough comradely.
Nemesis units ? ok bud.. still rocking that Nox and brissa huh ? Because Nemesis units doesn't exist.. Only Nemesis weapons and Raven
Really .......dude! I forgot the (,) after Nemesis. It’s not that funny. Stop trying to wood worm your way through the thread with that Lame response!
