BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, make sure your KONAMI e-amusement card is attached to the correct account if you want to be ranked for your region! Players outside of Japan commonly use two accounts, one set to their own region, and one set to Japan in order to use PASELI options such as basic course subscription and special modifiers. For example, if you are from the North America region and your card is registered to an account set to the Japan region, you must detach your card from your Japan account and attach it to a North American (US/Canada) account.

Refer to these guides to register a new e-amusement account: (bemanistyle) (RemyWiki)
Refer to this guide for how to detach and attach your e-amusement card between accounts.
