Most Japanese PSO2 players seem to be fine with foreigners. When the issue is brought up, you see just as many people saying "hey, foreigners aren't bad" as there are saying "foreigners shouldn't be clogging up our servers". The Matter Board is irritating. Locked to a quest that you can't change? Ugh. Also, uh, just a hint - the servers will go down pretty much every day until they've fixed all disconnection and lagging issues. That's why this is such a big beta. Stress testing. Ship 2 is for scrubs.
