The game is wonderful, I'm deeply enjoying playing it and have total faith in your upcoming updates. I'm writing this because I think it's time to implement one important feature in PSO universe, as with NGS we're clearly going through a change.
You push players to enhance the gear, raise BPs, find awesome builds with multi weapons and so on. Amazing, and very fun to do! Watching as our damage increases and realizing how enemies go down faster is a sweet feeling. We're totally missing an important feature though, and let me introduce it with my thought on it:
People love to see results. Humans have been comparing to each other since the beginning of this specie on Earth. There is no other way to see if someone is doing good or bad.
Letting other players know how hard you worked on your gear, or how good you did in that certain UQ, or Gigantix fight. Yes, you can inspect players. But you don't know how actually good or bad is the ARK in front of you.
I think this is fundamental in an mmo to let players compare to each other, grow their reputation in the ships, not forcing them to become youtubers. And this is also a perfect way to keep people playing the game, because they can have a proof that they need to get better, or that they did a great job at learning game mechanics and find their name at the "top 3 damage" or "top 3 damage on weak points", or "top healing". Or even just numbers! With columns of features and sortable rankings to our likings. Give us some numbers at the end of fights! Even if we don't want to compare to other players, let us compare it with ourselves! How better (with numbers ie. total damage) have I done today compared to 3 days ago? There was a reason for the old world of warcraft addon, made by fans, called "damage dealer" becoming so famous. It's been more than 15 years ago for me, yet I still perfectly remember the boost that it gave to the game. And I'm not the only one thinking so. It's been downloaded by millions of players. I hope other ARKS will help me with this post to let it reach developers ears.
Please, add rankings/statistics/numbers at the end of events. (And why not, put an option to disable them)
Thank you for reading.
