I think this is the best item of interest that wast really mentioned in the headline, but is really great for multiple reasons.
1st is to me it shows theyve got a clue that we dont like a new wallet drainer every single week. Im sure it took JP complaining anout it (and i saw the tweets), and my mention of it closer to launch had no bearing :3
2nd, f2p players have more time to collect meseta from dailies, weeklies, and field grind before greedy globalites put new AC items up for near unobtanium prices. Tho im sure the hostile globalites are taking this into account next week may confirm whether or not they really need to do something about the global market.
3rd, its less of a drain on whale wallets. Im sure SEGA knows many of the whales are going to throw all the money at every new ac scratch even if they left it weekly, but theyve shown some consideration and retraint.
Theyve earned a bit, just a bit, of respect for slowing down the AC scratch release schedule. I think i wouldnt mind it if it slowed down even further. I think its only fair. Since they decided to be snail pace with actual content from the start, AC scratch release should be snail pace too.
