@LockeKosta Ah yes loot boxes , In games where its purely cosmetic i see no issue with it , and since the game is M rated [even lists simulated gambling] last i checked , meaning its for Mature people who should know their limits, The only time loot boxes ever become and issue is when some form of Power is locked behind them , IE aa weapon/characters in mobile games or ala some random EA title , This game the scratch is pretty harmless , being as if you dont get what you wnat you sell your extras and buy what you want from others.
So the soap box is a little short here
Were it any form of POWER or advantage to scratch , I'd have your back on this , But having played on JP servers for aslong as I have , as a Free to play player I can tell you if they keep things even remotely similar then you can easily play as a free to play, Though as a fan of the game I am completely fine shelling out abit every few months,
I feel like I'm the only one who remembers the horse armor DLC days. Gamers have given up so much ground since then. You're voting with your wallet for them to focus more on creating and implementing cosmetics than content into the game, and I don't just mean PSO 2. But it could be worse so let's not say anything as the bar is slowly lowered year after year. I bet money there's going to be a day where people will be forgiving p2w practices too. "At least you can't outright pay to be on top of the leaderboard!"
