Some of us are cool enough to have friends in Europe AND North America.

Look up posts by a Blue name here by Brollywood. He's a (somewhat) confirmed Planetside 2 community manager for PSS1.

So far the knowledge that people have confirmed is:

--There is no longer a region lock. Euro players can play on US servers and US players on Euro servers. The community outcry was heard and problems were dealt with.
--SOE Station accounts will be transferred to PSS1 accounts (whatever they're called) with veteran status intact as well as all Station Cash will be transferred intact. (In other words no one is losing anything in the transfer.)
--SOE will still host and manage all PS2 (and I assume all other SOE games as well) servers in the Euro as well as US. PSS1 is only handling euro based Customer Service, Localization, Advertising and Marketing.

I can't be assed to find the links to the FAQ that stated all that, but it's out there.

My outfit is European based... I sure hope SOE gets this problem sorted. No partnership is worth alienating your entire community.

Pancake this is no longer a issue. US players can play on EU servers and EU players can play on US servers. We're going to be making a new thread soon and getting rid of this one. We don't want anyone getting confused about this anymore like you did.

I don't like you.

You're one of those people that say "I got mine, why is everyone else angry? You shouldn't be angry because it works for me!"

Did you ever think for a second about anyone else? Take me for instance. I'm an Australian online player. My group of online friends consist of an American, another American, a third American, yet another American, once more an American, sixth time an American and, the Pièce de résistance, an American. I'm the token Aussie. We've played together for approximately 5 years.

And this might come as a shock, but... I'd kinda like to keep playing with them? So when they announced a Region Lock, I was understandably angry. When I heard it's no longer region locked, I was understandably happy.

It wasn't just Planetside that was going to be affected. All SOE games were going to split the communities into regions via locks. The Everquest community was the loudest about it I think.

Perhaps the title of the thread could be edited so that everyone would know that Planetside 2 wont be region locked?

This thread will be sorted out shortly to clear up any possible confusion it might cause.

Re: PlanetSide 2 Region Lock (SOE is working on Resolution)


from my outfit Forums..using google translate.

Pro7 / Sat 1 is planning to make changes to the game client, should be filled before all the other European microtransaction store than
the U.S. version. Looking at other games that are offered by Pro7, you will quickly discover how many of you here Pay2Win content
place. What we can look forward here, then? Other balancing, and if that did not still like to pay the option open.
Playing on the U.S. server? Is possible, but only as a veteran of PS1. New players look into the tube.
Short Version

Pay2Win in Europe because client is different...evil Pro7 / Sat 1.

Re: PlanetSide 2 Region Lock (SOE is working on Resolution)


Its kinda shortsighted to take it as resolved. All they fixed is that they removed region lock. But all other stuff about this is big unknown. But it really need new thread so ppl dont jump about region lock.

I would be happy for this game to be region locked. Having players from the US on the Eu server would just strain the server more, have lag/warping issues and take spots from people that are actually from that region and deserve them.

I don't want to experience any problems with people who can't stick to their own region.
