  1. I've sent you a PM. You are free to discuss it with me there.
  2. This is not a message I was looking forward to writing, but it's one that is required at this point. There's been problems with the Team Chat, and till now they were relatively minor. But it's been a growing issue, enough that I've received numerous complaints about it. Initially I was giving verbal reminders to people, but the issues have only grown and frankly the chat is becoming uncomfortably toxic. It was one thing when we had people accidentally dropping story spoilers, but now I'm seeing racist comments, insulting other team members, and outright harassment. This needs to stop immediately. Nobody likes an overbearing moderator, I am not someone that wants to throw her weight around. But my patience with these issues has worn thin and if I have to get heavy handed, then I will. I can, will, and have, started issuing suspensions from the team for these issues. As standard practice I will usually give a warning before I issue a suspension, but if the behavior is blatant enough, at my discretion I can skip the warning and go straight to a suspension. We've had pretty lax rules to this point, I figured a lot of it was common sense stuff. But I have always said that you needed to treat people with respect on the team: -Be respectful of other Team Members: The goal of this team is to be a welcoming place for other players. While this team is certainly not limited to English players, it is the main entry point for pretty much the whole English community on this game. As such, it is very important that we be respectful and tolerant, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because we are guests on a foreign game that mandates a certain level of respect and politeness from it's customers. Us miss-behaving and not following this most basic of rules can put everyone at risk. -No racist, inappropriate, derogatory, or harassing messages in Team Chat: This is pretty much tied into being respectful. We've had cases of racist remarks being used, and harassment or "trolling" of other players. I'll just lay this out. I don't like bullies, and I have little tolerance for them. Start bullying other team members, you won't last long. If you have a personal issue with someone on the team, do your best to solve it outside of team chat. If you need a mediator, you can reach out to me and I can work with both of you to try and settle the issue. But don't start going after someone in team chat. I will say I've seen racist comments in the chat before. I will not tolerate this. Anyone of any skin color and any heritage is allowed in the team as long as they are able to treat others with respect. If certain types of people or heritages are an issue for you, than I'm going to be blunt. This isn't the team for you and you should depart. I won't budge on this one. On a side note, I sometimes see this term used and people don't realize it's history. But being this is a Japanese game I feel it's important to make people aware of it. Please do not shorten Japanese to "Jap". While not everyone is offended by it, it does have a history of being used as a racial slur and to this day there are some people that are really bothered by it. Please use "JP" instead as the abbreviation. This is a non-offensive term to everyone. -Suspensions Suspensions are issued at my discretion. When you are suspended, you are removed from the team. This does not have to be permanent. Contact me with your character name and ID and I can inform you how long the suspension is for and you can be re-added when the suspension period is served. I may add to this later if I think of more. I really do not want to become that moderator that has to start cracking the whip. Nobody wants to be here under tight supervision and having their every move watched. I do not want to have to start running monitoring services on the team chat so please take this message to heart and help me nip this in the bud before it becomes worse. Nobody likes an oppressive moderator, but I do have to start tightening my fist on these growing issues. The toxicity level of the chat is growing at an alarming rate and I can't allow it.

  4. This is what you want. Do you see this on your screen?
  5. Invite sent. ANNOUNCEMENT: The team is nearly filled to capacity. This weekend I will be deleting inactive team-mates. I will be going off the in-game last login display. If it shows you have not been logged in for a very long time or has no record of when you last logged in, you may find yourself deleted from the team. If you are deleted and wish to return, submit a new invite. If you have your last login hidden, consider changing that. If I can't determine when you last logged in, you are assumed to be inactive.
  6. Thanks for the kind words! My method of buying from hiroba is to buy webmoney and convert it into Crysta.
  7. I'll help you find it when I get off work.
  8. To my knowledge all pending invites have been sent out.
  9. You can return to the hiroba shop and there is a way to have it re-send the items to you. They'll arrive in your character's mailbox.
  10. You could always try the PC trial version first if you are unsure how well your PC can handle it.
  11. Hi ROM. I see your team invite request. I'll process that today. First make sure you are logging into DQX on the Nintendo Switch. As long as you are playing DQX on the same Switch account that is connected to the E-Store you don't need to do anything special. When it's time to renew your license DQX will be able to access the E-Store and see the points. If you want to buy something from the Hiroba shop itself, I am not aware of any way to convert E-Shop balance into Crysta or to have it access the E-Shop for hiroba purchases. As far as I know only your subscription can be paid for with E-Shop funds.
  12. Remina's town is currently the team town. Take a look and check out the various houses. Make sure to stop by Milkshake's cafe!
  13. I'm honestly not sure if trial version players are able to visit the town area. You may need to visit the NPC in Rendoa and see if they let you into a town area.
  14. Hello everyone! Cranberry here with an announcement. The Team House will be temporarily changing to a new location. For about a week レミーナ will be hosting the house at his new town. This change is currently planned to take place Saturday May 16th. Stop by and check out the new town. Some of the decorating themes in the current team house were inspired by some of レミーナ's themes. He's gone to a lot of effort to decorate in hopes that you'll enjoy this look at a new town.
