This new SG Sale is Absolutely Wrong

Hey, I'd like to say something about this. Because I feel like SEGA is going in the wrong direction about making AC scratch formerly in JP version into SG bundle where they think 950 SG is "sale". Because it isn't. People spend a lot on Fresh Finds every time, and some people do their Mission Passes, while earning SG is so minimal besides title/story rewards and daily login rewards. (excluding PSO2 day 22 SG tickets), this PSU outfits existed from AC scratch and it was -tradeable- How in the world is it non-tradeable and why is this even okay?

Can you please change the price or something? - Also the items AREN'T EVEN TWO item stocks to make it Account bound. Some people don't want to play male as to some people don't want to play female. It's not EVEN tradeable or sellable.

How is this okay? Are people really being supportive about this? Because I am not, and I've been pretty supportive about this game for a while. Come on, please change the value of the SG price - drop it lower and make items account bounded before releasing it. Because this is really not a good bundle.

Totally agree. SG will probably be more common later, but right now it isn't and this is a warranted complaint.

yeah, there should be two separate sets at half the price at the very least...

Why force people to have a bundle that includes both sets?

Also the 50% EX boost is worthless, only exists to justify the higher cost.

You have to have at least a month or three of no selling to get a company to lower their prices on anything if they don't dump it all together. Good luck, and I almost guarantee you Whales already bought a bunch of those so, yeah, it ain't happening as long it is profitable at the current price. I agree now that we see how SG bundles work, they aren't all they are cracked up to be. However, even on JP the version many of these items, on certain scratch tickets, were not meant for the general public, they were meant for whales to utilize in trickle-down economics. The problem here is that that stuff IS NOT FREAKIN RESELLABLE which is a tactic designed to force people into a credit card corner. I would have less of a problem if we knew resellable versions would be put into circulation at a later date.

I mean freakin way-to-go-guys ... when money is becoming tighter and tighter in these economic times, you gonna pull this sh-- ... no thanks guys. Im not even on PC yet and I think this is garbage.

Beat me to it, I already put it in the in-game suggestions area. But I'm with the idea that this is just not okay, especially when there was a separate AC scratch banner for this. Which means it may conflict with players ever having tradable versions of these outfits.

It is illegal to offer things on sale that are permanently on sale as well.

Lower the price please. Going by sg prices this bundle is around $40, on sale.

Yea this is really sad. I refuse to support these SG sales. They would be better off profiting with AC, and making these items TRADABLE.

It's whatever, I'm waiting for PC but now I am glad we're missing out on this so new players don't get suckered into this.

All I wanted was Karen's hairstyle for my female newman. Really sad it's this overpriced and definitely will not be partaking in the greed. It is also concerning that this is likely where this game is headed. Essentially I am wondering if they are trying to milk the west, in the middle of a pandemic, to help fund a sequel we probably won't even get.

What worries me is my potential JP fashion items becoming Fresh Finds only, which means untradeable, and almost means I cannot recreate my character, which would be heartbreaking.

I'm honestly not even interested in the items in the pack, with that preface out of the way I would like to point out some inconsistencies in the data being provided in the link on the official post being referenced in the current thread. The websites SG page, which is linked to at the end of the post shows "ways to obtain this currency" that are not actually implemented in the game. The casino has no SG at the prize counter, the refer a friend system isn't in the game, the only official post listing the information about ARKS league rewards (the previous ARKS league) did not include SG. The current ARKS league information post does not list rewards. Now I would also like to point out that Time Attack rankings of the past 3 weeks (lines up perfectly with the past 3 weeks of SG sales) have listed missions that are not in the game. I'm sure the team responsible for fixing the bug listing wrong Time Attack missions is not the same team responsible for these SG sales but its completely poor timing (no pun intended)

Just FYI next week will likely have the other PSU scratch bonus LA Viviene dash and some other junk. So this will likely continue every week. I think this is the first one that is a worse deal than JP price wise.

In addition to buying them with AC, you can earn SG through in-game rewards, etc.

SG is acquired primarily in the following ways.

Login Stamp rewards Bonus Quest rewards Filling up the Affinity gauge for your outfits, outerwear, and body parts Ranking rewards ARKS Leagues rewards Exchanging for them at the Prize Exchange Counter. Exchanging White ARKS Badges given to players when they are invited through the Friend Referral System. SG earned through in-game rewards are free.

Free SG are spent first.

Here it is, and yeah there is almost no point I. The friend referral part most of us have already invited our friends by word of mouth

It’s a horrific, predatory pack.

I’m a whale, I’m sure my purchase history can be checked to verify that. Yet even I was shocked at this.

Insane price aside, the pack should be gender split, should contain 2x to make it account bound OR should be sellable on the player market.

It’s also incredibly sneaky to price it at 1350SG. The exact amount of SG you get for $49.99 (including BONUS)

Compared to the “value” of the Ragol fashion pack this is obscene.

I would love to have @GM-Deynger to forward this issue to the developers/staffs because this issue really needs to be addressed. Lot of players do feel that this is a bit wrong, and this SG sale needs to be put on halt before it is released tomorrow and revise for better resolution - before players buy this and realize they gave more money than what it was worth.

Sorry to bother you, favorite GM in the forum. But we need your help in this.
