The weak support of European Phantasy Star Online players just gained a boost in morale. PSO-World.de and the Mia Team's Craik organized a promo for Phantasy Star Online. It featured four serious players, patience, and a lot of free time.
The goal of the four players was to simultaneously reach level 200, the level cap for characters, after beating the boss Olga Flow in the last stage 'Seabed'. In order to accomplish such a feat, the four players gathered experience together in sync for one year. While it may appear difficult and perhaps impossible, these four players managed to conquer the task on June 3, 2004.
The Sonic Team even personally noted the record of German PSOX players on the PSOX PAL servers and even published the event with video downloads. With this the Sonic Team acknowledged that there is a PAL PSO community and that they want the same range of quests, updates, and downloads as Japan.
