Lucky. I don't live in Japan anymore. I didn't mind keeping my mains there for a while but now I'm getting lonely as it's a small server anyway and now I play at the "odd" hours of the server. They just say that I can't do anything about it because it's a different region. I would have taken EU over JP time but, bah.
I assume some day they will make this possible, because there are a lot of changes within the game lately. I can't really say when I'm gonna give up, because I really do enjoy my game, so I don't see myself not playing anymore because of this.
