@Neoyoshi said in PSO2 Ratings Have Tanked And Microsoft Store Is To Blame! But fear not! We have a solution......:
I have to be honest, because i'm often feeling like that lone PC-user on a island by myself; but i really have to ask:
"What in the world did all of the other PC users that are having major issues do differently?"
Did i not have any issues because i already had a Microsoft account linked to the Xbox-play anywhere system? Is it because i'm on a old Hotmail email account from 1999? That last part is just me being silly. xD
But i do have this mental list going on in the back on my brain when i see the topic of PC-users running into issues with this game and it's relation to the microsoft store.
Do you have Windows 10 64bit Version 1909? Are you updated to the latest .Net rollout package?
Do you have the general Microsoft store gaming apps installed? eg: Xbox Companion, Xbox Identity Provider, Gaming Services
What kind of computer do you have, what tech generation is it?
Who is your ISP? (Internet Service Prover)
Are you located and attempting to play from North America?
Before i even thought about pre-downloading on that early morning of the 26th (which really may as well been the 27th)- i updated everything; i made sure all my microsoft plugins and apps on the app store were fully up to date; i double-checked to make sure i my Windows didn't have any lose updates i had forgotten about or hidden away.
Most importantly, and maybe this is just me being paranoid or not trusting my own judgment, but i made absolutely sure NOT to install the launcher onto any other drive outside of the standard C:\ drive.
Also i did not use any type of 3rd party download managers or accelerators; which i know some advanced PC users like to use but i've never had good experiences with in the past.
Hi Neoyoshi. I haven't seen you since Revelations Online.
This meme is appropriate for you as you are just like the subreddit comments:
To answer all your questions, this issue that's happening didn't happen to just PSO2 but to all other games on the Microsoft Store:
Just because you don't have an issue doesn't give you the right to think that thousands of other people somehow did something differently to lead to all these thousands of complaints.
