Seriously, GMPT is a huge part of what made paying 15$ a month worth a damn as it motivated you to actually try and do Tier and Weekly missions for Stars to get all those bonus items and cosmetics. (In addition to the personal shop). Trading is pointless, extra log in bonus. You'll still get that next one anyway with more time.
What are you paying for now? A low mediocre triboost and access to actually be able to sell your items like every single MMO in existence since ever offers for free? I didn't start playing until after a few months the game hit Steam, so there's a whole ton of MP content I didn't even get a chance at. Let alone getting those capsules for end game affixes. (I've played 300 hours and am still working on EP3 content)
I'm definitely not paying for Premium any more. And you sure as hell aren't funneling me into NGS any time soon so premium benefits that only affect NGS are 100% irrelevant. Do they just expect us to keep paying for AC Scratch with the removal of SG purchases? (that were a 1000% rip off to begin with).
I waited 8 years to play PSO2. Not NGS.
