PSO2 JP: Maintenance (3/15/2017)

Account Suspensions

Temporary or permanent account suspensions have been carried out for those who have AFK’d or abandoned ranked Battle Arena matches over a certain amount of times. Users who were caught in the suspensions will have their Arena Points set to 0. 

In the future, players who were suspended in violation of the policy will also have their Arena Points set to zero.

The suspensions carried out above applies to accounts with violations over a certain amount of times between March 1st ~ March 15th. Some suspensions within this period were unrelated to the battle arena abandonments.

Battle Arena Abandonment Policy

It has come to Sega’s attention that some users have been abandoning Battle Arena matches in order to prevent the loss of Arena Points. The following countermeasure will be instituted after some point in time in March.

  • Abandoning a ranked match, regardless of its outcome, will decrease your Arena Points as if you lost the match.

The above statement will also apply even in cases of disconnections and client terminations. In addition, accounts which have been determined to intentionally abandon Ranked Matches after the release of this statement, may also be subject to temporary or permanent suspensions.

Password Matches are excluded from the policy stated above.
