I don’t know if 2022 is the fate of Tower of Fantasy or not when this game is constantly boycotted by gamers for unnecessary reasons.

Tower of Fantasy is currently one of the games that receive the attention of many gamers around the world. But despite being the most anticipated open-world game, Tower of Fantasy is facing a lot of unnecessary controversy right after the international version was officially released, from the server failure to respond. The number of gamers logging into the game until the story is continuously rated 1 star from the Chinese gaming community for not integrating the Chinese option into the international version.

And perhaps that much is not enough when recently, the developer of Tower of Fantasy had to speak up to clear up a controversial topic related to the Japanese server. Specifically, the Japanese gaming community has found that this country’s server is “JP Fu/c Test Server“, with the letter Fu/c pronounced almost like “JP F**k”, or “F**k the Japanese”.

Quickly a wave of boycott Tower of Fantasy has arisen in Japan, when many gamers believe that the publisher is intending to “sarcastic, mock and insult” gamers in the country of cherry blossoms.

According to what the publisher of Tower of Fantasy had to explain to appease the gaming community in this country, specifically, this is a symbol of the test server. The full name of “Fu/c Test Server” is “Functional Upgrade Check (Check for Functional Upgrade) Test Server”. Not only Japan, but some other servers, typically Europe, also have similar names for developers to easily monitor and upgrade when needed.

“We sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding and inconvenience this may have caused. We are also doing our best to fix other issues that occurred today. We will update as soon as possible. We hope so if you wait a bit.” Tower of Fantasy’s NPH side explained further.

In fact, there are many ways to name the server through other acronyms, but the developer chooses the one that causes the most awkwardness. Still don’t know if Tower of Fantasy can continue the success of Genhshin Impact in the future or not, but the constant entanglement of unnecessary scandals is making this game worse in the eyes of the worldwide gaming community.
