I have one friend who has already totally quit the game, and will not play NGS, because we didn't get SG support scratch this boost week. The reason being is that he saw withholding SG Scratch as a cash grab: it seemed intended to force people into buying AC Support scratch if they wanted to finish this week. If we don't get at least Mark Capsules soon (it doesn’t have to be via support scratch, it could be in some exchange shop or other), I have other friends who are talking about quitting if not. It does feel ridiculous to be at end game, and be running around with unfinished god units due to a lack of Mark Capsules. I am similarly upset about it, but instead of quitting I simply didn’t whale out on AC scratch like I was intending to. I was going to scratch until at least the Divine Order bonus, but due to them withholding Mark Capsules I kept my wallet closed and went Mana Reverie on my weps instead.
Another thing that is just really annoying me is the total inability to do anything useful with the deluge of 13* units from XQ4 or Cradle. Yeah, you can vendor them but that’s about it. JP has a cube exchange, why do we not have that yet? It feels ridiculous for them to withhold that at this point. It is a little thing, but little things like this add up with bigger things and eventually Sega ends up driving away its hardcore players like my friend and hey over time maybe also me. I try to make a point to scratch every new scratch bc I can afford it and I like to support them, but this cash grab really soured me. I am not leaving yet, but I am very upset about this decision.
