@Miraglyth That is such a blatant misrepresentation of what I said. You're "debunking" strawmen, inventing points I haven't made and then steering the argument towards them hoping I bite. It's very disingenuous and I'm not interested in playing that game with you. And you know, perhaps you should research what actually goes into the LoL champion updates before you dismiss them out of hand as so much less effort than what Sega is doing, and I'll remind you that LoL champions and skins do not get re-sold to us after that effort and cost.
Anyway, I'm elaborating my point one last time, which will be enough, and bowing out.
You know, I'm willing to compromise with a company operating in good faith, who lays down the reality and why up front, and says "But we value your patronage enough to acknowledge you and do something to soften the blow." What I'm not willing to do, is shrug my shoulders and throw more money at Outfit Rehash Scratches for a copy of my ninja suit that has the basic NGS features. If the game is brand new, and it is a brand new outfit, then why is it being marketed as an update to PSO2? If the game is an upate to PSO2, then why can't my outfit, eventually, have the basic features of the engine without me diving into an endless gacha for an updated copy?
Right now they want to have it both ways and it's causing a lot of unnecessary confusion and frustration. Maybe their marketing team should re-examine that.
