I always play as shorter characters in MMOs. More and more nowadays these kinds of characters keep getting more and more restrictions put onto them, and I have to be honest when I say that its the number one thing that drives me away from a game. I just want to play as the character that appeals to me the same as anyone else does.
And I understand that the changes to PSO2 aren't as significant as some other games have made, I mean its only what? 10 Centimeters? But after all this time, its the idea behind it that's become hurtful. Whether it was the intention or not, the implication to a change like this is "we don't want people making a character that looks like this or can be interpreted in this way".
And that makes me feel like you don't want me here. Like you don't want me to be a part of your community. It makes me feel like I'm being labeled a creep or a weirdo just for wanting to play as a character in a video game. It feels awful. Especially with a game like PSO2 that so many people, myself included, have been waiting so long for an official western release for. And I know a lot of people will try to spin it around and say "I guess you really didn't care that much if something like this was enough to turn you away from the game", but I do care. I care so damn much. But whenever I suck up my pride and try to play a game that implements a localization change like this, I can't look at my character without feeling like the developers hate me and don't want me here.
Please revert the changes to the height slider and allow me to enjoy your game.
