i also think SG is stupid and reeks of mobile gaming, stacking 2 different paid-able currency's in one game is bad
Yeeeah, I've never seen a good version for more than one premium currency and this really adds to it. I guess it's technically semi-premium, but with how little you can earn in-game, it doesn't feel that way. And we already had three currencies (Meseta, FUN Points, and AC) without adding a fourth one.
The major problem and takeaway based on my screenshot is that in JP you literally earn SG so easily heck even almost every maintenance you get free SG (Logged in and claimed around 100+ SG free because of collective AC campaigns) whereas PSO2 NA there really is no way outside of the story mode and some titles to obtain SG.
This is probably due to the "Fresh Finds" option which is used to introduce costumes/accessories similar to a catch-up method but unfortunately they're terribly overpriced with the current example requesting 800SG (around 40$) for some AC obtain-able costume which is less than 1m in PSO2 JP. If you're all outraged about the lack of SG then you should continue to voice your feedback to them (PSO2 NA staff)
It'd probably be a good idea to make a topic in the In-Game suggestions essentially citing either more ways to earn them/all the ways you can in Japan and/or drastically lowering the prices along with reconsidering making the items untradeable. I feel like the price lowering should be considered regardless if only because only a day to buy some items sucks (I know I've already missed out on some things I've wanted) and there's SO MUCH to re-introduce to the game.
