Well GG, it looks like I might be taking you up on your offer to join you on the PSO2 Japan server man, Micro$oft has seen fit to utterly screw me (and all Windows 7 & 8 owners) once again. You cannot install PSO2 NA through their M$ store WITHOUT THE POS WINDOWS EFFIN 10.
Sorry to hear they screwed you over with that. I'm seeing reports of problems all over the discord servers i'm in too. Pretty stupid MS they took that route when PSO2 JP works just fine on the older OS.
