UPDATE: It appears SEGA has reinstated the IP block. Hopefully SEA will keep to their word and get this game localized for us very soon.
Force | Phantasy Star Online 2

Some exciting news to come from a reader of mmostite.com. The IP block that stops Australian and American players from logging on to the English version of Phantasy Star Online 2 SEA has been removed for unknown reason. Players from both regions are now logging on without the use of a VPN.

So, if you have been eager to play Phantasy Star Online 2 SEA, you can get the English version of the game over at playpark.com.

    Downloading now. Will comment again to confirm working or not.

    • pso2love

      OMGYESH it is working! Now, is this unblock temporary?

    • Bobby Jennings/Godless

      It’s perm. Seems like they did this because tons of people are quitting the game.

  • Andrew

    The IP block will be reinstated due to a harsh contract with SEGA. The contract simply states they must only provide service to SEA users and an IP block is required, If not this could lead to some legal issues. Expect the IP block to be up next by next maintenance or maybe even sooner.

    I’m assuming this means that Sega will never release of in the west, so SEA is good enough.

    • Juju

      no it isnt

    • An Tran

      It’s better than nothing.

    • Juju

      or you could play the japanese version with the 20 mb patch that patches the whole game to english
      saying playing the shit version is better than nothing, when you could be playing the GOOD version that doesnt have an ip block is retarded
      by the way, the ip block on the sea version is back up already so, dont be a retard and playing the shitty version when you can have better with no downside

  • Ayumi Spender

    I rather drown in urine than play on the SEA server with very little content, horrible font choice, and laughable translations. Rather stick to the JPN servers.

  • Juju

    every one getting “happy” about this is fucking stupid, the japanese version has never had an IP block and all you need to play the game is 20 mb of patch downloads
    if you want to play the game dont play this crap, it is fucking retarded, go to arks-layer there you can find a guide to create an account as well as downloading the game and how to use pso2 tweaker(a much better launcher for the game than the vanilla one)

    • enzoballs

      Tell me how it’s worth it to play on the JP servers when more than half of the weapons you pick up are UNTRANSLATED

    • Juju

      the fuck are you talking about? the only thing that isnt translated about the weapons is their description, which is pretty fucking useless, and even so, some weapon’s descriptionsare translated, some of the newer ones arent, the weapons dont have any lore or anything, so what you are complaining about is useless crap lol

    • Jorudenu

      Not only that, my friends started playing 2weeks ago and most of the tutorial quest are in JP, plenty of little story stuff are in jp and most of the high level content are in jp only. + most of the emergency event are in JP. I’m lucky i can understand most of it but if you don’t well you’ll spoil your fun just rushing for level and don’t understand a shit. Just to give you an idea he never realize he had a MAG and how to use it. He feed it with crap and now it’s level 61 and the start are around 0-10 like wtf really? So no, he’s saying the real thing saddly. So stop acting like an ass and be like: DAH FUCK BRO YA KID7NG DUDDE!? YA READ DESCR1PTION? RETARD GAY FAGG!… man i hate that kind of people.

    • IamReallyBored

      Agreed. Can’t stand people like that, who think that just because you actually enjoy reading the details the game has to offer that there must be something wrong with you. Honestly, I couldn’t stand the massive lag spikes for the SEA version which is the only reason I am on JP. I want to enjoy my game, ALL of it, fluff and all. It sucks that so much is untranslated, and if they didn’t have this stupid block I would be on that server again. I would rather have a game in all English that is behind by a year then an up to date game that I can barely understand. Just saying.

  • Andrew

    I hate to say i told you so, but i told you so.

  • Beecher Smith

    fuck sega, they fuck every one of the fans they have,
    want pso? you dont get that , have more sonic!
    want anything? fuck you, have another sonic game.
    man our stocks are dropping and getting even worse! need more sonic!

    this is sega logic, cant even launch a game people would pay monthly for in a 1st world country ,fuck you sega.
