For reference, I got the game on Steam.
Installed the game late Friday night, made my character and logged off since it was late. Next morning, boot up PSO2 through the shortcut and it asks me to download the game (same thing happened when booting through Steam). After it checked that I still had the game's files, I boot the game, log in with my character and go through a loading screen only for the game to freeze after a while and close completely. Twice. Same thing just happened now.

Has this happened to anyone else? Coz idk if it's just a server thing or my laptop being weird. I really don't want to reinstall the game after it took so long.

I can't say I have, but from my experience on the Windows Store version, I was already using PSO2Tweaker to handle in install and launching of the game, even after I switched to the Steam version.

If it crashes while in the loading "tunnel," seems like the game has missing/corrupted assets. I suggest using the Tweaker to verify the game files, but be sure that you have it set for NA.

Note that this process will take a while; not as long as a complete reinstall, but it will need some time to build its data/file list.

Might also be permission/exe issues, which the Tweaker can fix as well.
You don't need a reason to help people.

Yes, Tweaker is your friend, for many reasons. I've never run into issues like this, although I was getting stupid gameguard crashes for a brief time about a month ago. Seems to have stopped now and it was only an issue with several UQs before.

I'm not familiar with this tweaker, but I'll find it and see if that fixes anything.

I live in Europe, but hopefully it'll still work.

That's fine. NA is what the Tweaker calls the Global version.

Used the tweaker and it worked. It updated my game and everything's working now. Thanks for the help.

Never had the issue. They just updated the game to download through steam now so it doesn't update from the launcher anymore, the launcher only launches the game now
