They really need to just start bundling Material Storage in with the Premium Pass. Is there a reliable and consistent way to grind at least 300 SG a month?

A Premium Pass costs 1500 AC, which is roughly fifteen dollars, which seems on par with other MMORPGs that have an up-front subscription cost. But then you progress through the game, and you realize you run out of inventory space very very motherfucking quickly. You can ONLY FUCKING TEMPORARILY alleviate this by purchasing thirty days worth of Material Storage, but that costs you another 300 SG, which if you're not regularly accruing Star Gems at a reasonable rate will cost you roughly another twenty motherfucking dollars. Basic functions like this should not be hidden behind yet another paywall. It's not even like this is a pay to win game, you have to pay to merely fucking exist in it.

RE: sources for grinding SG, @TEN-SQUARE-3 outlines most of them near the bottom of Page 1 of this thread.

If you're short on SG, renting Extended Storage is a cheaper option that doesn't have all the QoL features of Material Storage.

Honestly, it would entice people to buy premium more if it included the material storage.

Thats my main problem with this game. Everything is rented except for extra Collection Folder Slots (which costs 800SG btw) from what I've seen. I'd rather buy character slots for 500AC and use those permanent 300 slots even if that is less convenient (Having to swap items to shared storage, change character, send said items from shared to character storage, log out again, return to main char).

Material Storage is Extremely top tier Since you can do everything without touching your Storage i think 100 SG for month is FAIR.

If you're into doing Casino, you can get 40 SG a week there, it's a bit expensive though.

Mission pass gives 75 free, or 150 gold pass SG every month. There's also Buster Quests, PVP matches, titles, 88 SG from pso2-day(both combined), and daily campaigns that give free sg, and arks league which once a month or so. But I agree it's pretty tedious to get especially when content is abandoned half the time. I almost forgot outfits, you can usually find cheap outfits that'll give 10 SG if worn for 24 hours.

Edit: also Magatsu bonus missions, but you need to do daily recommended quests to get those usually.

Firstly the 300 SG for 30 days option is a terrible choice when there's a 720 SG for 90 days option that saves 20%.

Or you could scroll down a little and get a bullet-pointed list.

It's +100 free, +200 if you get a gold ticket from premium (Episode 6 deluxe pack excluded for some weird reason), and +0 (break-even) if you buy a gold ticket with SG to get the gold tier rewards. Every 28 days. which is marginally better than every month.

For premium players (as described in the OP), Mission Pass alone gives 642 SG per 90 days and login stamps give 360 more per 90 days (actually a little better since 2 PSO2 days per calendar month give a third login stamp; I can't be bothered to do the math here). So that's 1,000 SG per 90 days just for logging in and doing tier missions and you only need 720. It's covered.

Premium is worthless right now and these pay to win gachas are cancer. It's like sega hates its player base

Companies creating problems and selling you the solutions is becoming pretty common lately, this isn't new. sadly. Sega knows full well that measly 200 default storage isn't anywhere near enough if you actually play this game for an extended period of time, or ONLY pick up the bare essentials. character storage does give you breathing room though, if that's you're only character you bother with, Material storage certainly should have been part of the premium, but then that means you won't be tempted to keep buying Sg to keep up with it.

Why is the ac scratches in PSO2 considered P2W by you? Do they give you +stats when you wear outfits? Do they have set bonuses if you wear the same layers together? If you feel sega hates its player base... Why are you staying in this abusive relationship with them?

@AstralLettie 8 year old game with 8 year old problems 😞

8 year old evolving game. When I first played, there wasn't even character storage, nor the SG rentable extended storage. Material storage is also considered quite new, and yes the cost was controversial and many players complained but SEGA did not relent.

Of course not, they were too busy counting the money "you want your storage doncha? pay up!"

Bruhhhh, have you EVEN LOOKED AT THE GACHAS? It's not just pay to win, it's abusively pay to win.

Right now S augs worth hundreds of millions can be bought from the ac recycle. SUPPORT GACHA: only way to affix certain things... You cannot trade then and have to spend $120 to get the Exceed one.

Look at the Divine affix giving +10 pp +50 atk and tell me it's ok for this p2w that can't even be traded. 1 PP is worth 10 attack, easily.

Not to mention, this limited recycle shop DOUBLED RECYCLE BADGE PRICES

To throw salt in the wound, there is no ticketing for Support, you can't just ticket the MEL affix which is what sells highest.

You clearly don't know how pay to win works, nothing in this game is pay to win,

Pay to win would mean the rev, trail blazeer weapons, etc would be in the scratches. You want pay to win, go try black desert online or genshin impact. You can use MESETA to buy the scratch items and even then, you can easily do without them.

May want to research how pay to win works. If they wanted to go that route, hero, phantom, etoile would have all been in a "pack" for XXX amount.

Pay to win is when free players can't have the (gameplay related) things that premium players can.

Pay to win is the argument that games were better when there was a sub and no microtrans.

Pay to win is when a game uses abusive psychology to encourage overspending.

PSO2 meets all these criteria. Just because it's not Forsaken World where the abuse is 1000x higher than even the two games you mentioned, doesn't mean that it's not p2w or psychologically abusive. Pay to win is pay to win, period.

I'll take the f***ing sub every time.

Now go troll someone your own power level, lmao. I've been playing MMOs since RO and L2, (PSO2 isn't an mmo btw) I know what pay to win and grind is.
