To SEGA Development team having a single hub zone where all players start from really isnt any different than the current Ps02 hub design in the ship
example having multiple hub zones ( starting point for players ) in one map there should be a Hub zone and on another map there should be another hub zone this would fill in empty spaces on the world map of NGs currently, the map only has one hub zone ( one city) this is empty as warframes open world plains of eidolon.
npc shops npc hunting board npc material trading npc guild reputation npc pvp reward shops
npc pve dungeon achievements
similarly how it it is done from black desert online and ffxiv respectively.
The ps02 ngs feels like a solo game than it does a mmo massively multiplayer.
lack of connecting zones empty spaces without towns or villages.
increase your server power to hold more players on screen and in zones to make the game less empty 5000 players at least
why not add a a npc guild by building enough reputation they are open to exclusive rewards. this would allow each ps02 ngs player to be more connected since they will be sharing the same npc guilds.
how about utilizing dungeons and dungeon gameplay with time attack features clearing a dungeon before time expires.
4 player dungeons 6 player dungeons
improving the frame rate so character movement is smoother on screen 60 frames not the 20 or so frame rate we have currently.
pvp better game modes why is it just collecting emblems more teams red and blue, green and purple 4 way team battle 36 player team battles on a open field. Current Maps are unappealing most are blocks of concrete everywhere. more class diversity braver ? double saber ? . more combat options i.e overcoming block with grapple feature perfect blocking incoming projectile or melee ?.
do not make the same mistake as ffxiv where large maps are created that only adds to the emptiness in a map rather make smaller maps with more things in them. by making a large map into a smaller map you can add more map zones for players to travel too.
if the game quality is going down due to not making enough money ps02 ngs should charge players 4 dollars a month to play. This would give the developers incentive to further expand the game.
ps02 ngs isnt fun as it could be current ps02 is the boring repetitive cycle of monthly new scratch every month lackluster boss fights that are easy with typical rewards missing mmo dungeons and other game modes that are found in most mmos. ugly outdated graphics this makes the game very unappealing . with bad frame rate character movement is not smooth on screen. without a console release this games popularity wont increase to the broader players
as mmos we want to be unique have our own selling point to the players however taking inspiration from other mmos would be great, as they have certain game designs much more appealing than ps02s.
