The Phantasy Star Online 2 site has been updated with a lengthy note from developers to let the community know about actions taken against “dishonest acts” in the game. Between September 25th and October 15th, over 10,000 game accounts were permanently banned for participating in real money transactions (RMT). In total, developers have banned over 31,000 accounts since the game’s launch.
Real money transactions are forbidden by the user agreements signed by players when starting play in PSO2. Typically, virtual items are sold to players by third-party sites.
We acknowledged that RMT might have a significant impact on the in-game economy, such as “items being unpurchaseable due to inflation “. Since this can cause problems for a lot of players, we ask that you please do not take part in these acts.
- buying or selling Meseta stolen from another player through unauthorized access to their account
- ceding and/or lending an account to another player
- malicious and repeated “nuisance behavior”
