OLD POST BELOW
My sentiments after rushing from group to group in Mt. Magnus for 20 minutes and seeing the PSE meter go up and down between Lv.2 and Lv.4, then drop to Lv.3 just because a trial was immediately next to a non-trail pack and then to Lv.2, is summed up in one word:
PSE Level Downs are garbage, they are bullshit, and they work against the core game loop of this game: to kill mobs.
PSE Downs are making it frustrating to play in pugs and there are no way to lock a room.
Please remove PSE Downs or make it a really rare event, something that happens less than getting event weapon drops.
My 3 grips with this game now:
- RMT ad spam that pop up in your face even if you try to shut out all player communications. SEGA says it's prohibited but refuses to do anything about it.
- Market scalpers that contribute nothing but high inflation. SEGA thinks it's fine and don't even talk about it.
- PSE Downs that punish you for killing mobs in a mob grind game. SEGA loves it so much it's part of the core mechanic of the game.
Why does it feel like you go out of your way to make the game frustrating for players?
